It is still early in the conference season but that was a very important win. There are four really challenging games on this schedule that are closer to coin flips and this was one of them (@ISU, @Baylor and @OSU). Winning this one in my view takes something like a 5 loss trip through the conference off the table unless we have injury and makes it pretty damn likely that we can navigate this thing with 2 or 3 losses and I don't see the consistency from anyone else to match that.
Releford was huge. McGruder will have bad dreams about him. He really only got really quality looks against Ben despite a crap ton of moving screens (Spradling never even tried to set his feet when doing it). We will miss him a ton next year.
Honestly, it's way early, but I think the win last night all but wraps up the conference barring a melt down at home. Which is unlikely. You have to believe this team runs the table at home. That's 9 wins. They have 3 road wins now. That's already likely 12 guaranteed wins. Throw in at TCU that makes 13 wins that this team likely has in the bag. That right there might win the conference. At WVU kind of scares me as the crowd and WV team will be up, but definitely a game KU can / should win. That's 14-4. That wins the league I would think.

I was telling my wife before the game how strange it felt that a win last night would make it feel like the conference was clinched, and it does. There are only 4 losable games left, really, with ISU, OU, OSU, and Baylor on the road, and even if you toss WVU in there, it's hard to imagine losing more than 2-3.
Now that we've all said it, we'll definitely fall to OU on Saturday AT HOME.
The thing is that it is not so much the games we could lose as what everyone else has in front of them as far as potential roadblocks. It is not so much that I think KU won't be beaten as I think other teams will lose more games.
Oh, that definitely plays into it, but I just don't buy that we'll lose more than 2-3, and there's no way anyone else loses that few.
