KU hoops commitment Kyle Cuffe Jr. reclassifies into 2021 class, will join Jayhawks for 2021-22 season

Indeed. I thought that was a funny quote from Self, jumping from 100,000 to a million KU fans in the world so quickly. I know a TON of KU fans that never attended KU. Mostly general Kansan population but I've run into some random one's all over, whose parents were fans, or a sibling or someone else had a link to KU. Let's say half a million... ;)

Recent win over previously unbeaten Baylor propels Kansas to No. 13 in latest AP poll

Excellent points and a solid analogy, Steven.

Kansas basketball adds March 4 game with UTEP to wrap up 2020-21 regular season

I suppose KU Athletics needs extra cash like everyone else... why else would they be in such a rush to add a game? Seems odd to me. Let them rest... or practice! Then again, this team was terrible after the break this winter, so maybe they need to keep playing.

How phantom losses & adjusted winning percentage could (but probably won't) determine the Big 12 champ

I agree, as I said in comments elsewhere on this site: Baylor has established an entirely unfair advantage for themselves this year. KU, for example, would obviously have a much better win/loss percentage if we had just decided to skip our second games against OU and WVU, and opt out of our trip to UT next week in order to rest up and prep for the final game against Baylor at home.

Baylor's title after ducking a third of their league games will be tainted as well, IMO, despite the fact they are obviously the best team.

Thanks for breaking this down for us, Matt.

Big 12 basketball standings for Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021

Even if based on win/loss percentage, as you guys have sorted the list above, it is still incredibly unfair. KU would obviously have a much better win/loss percentage if we had just decided to skip our second games against OU and WVU, and opt out of our trip to UT next week in order to rest up and prep for the final game against Baylor at home.

Big 12 basketball standings for Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021

Matt, Benton... or anyone... please break down the logic of how the Big 12 plans to decide the winner of this year's league title? Say, for example, Kansas wins out and finishes 13-5, or OU wins out and ends up 13-4. If Baylor loses one or two of their last games and is 10-2, or 11-1, or even wins out and ends up 12-0, who wins the league? The team with the most wins or the fewest losses? Why would teams be penalized for actually playing all their games, possibly up to 6 more than Baylor? And why would Baylor be granted the title having rested half the season? The only three teams in the league that Baylor will have managed to play twice (other than KU) are in the bottom four: OSU, ISU, and KSU. They will have only played most of the top teams in the league once (UT, WVU, OU, TT). Granted, they beat them all, but it’s still weird to get to rest your team a full third of the league season and not have a HUGE asterisk next to that title. KU & OU both already have an equal number of league WINS than Baylor has scheduled games left to be played.
