Actually, the postseason isn't here yet.

A tournament that's being held for the purposes of making money is here. The real fun begins next week.

Gees how I HATE this Big 12 Tournament. The Hawks never have anything to gain and is a very major distraction when we should be getting ready for the NCAA Tournament.

Guess it's only a distraction if you let it be. It didn't distract them in 08. This team seems hungry. I like that. They could use this tournament to simulate practice for the one and done scenario of the tourney. I say keep winning. Instead of 6 rounds, it's 9. Rock Chalk!

For the first time in years we go into tourney with no question marks and no one injured. If Mason, Ellis and Graham score 10-20 and one r two other guys plays lights out, like Greene or Svi or Selden, the Hawks will be a tough out. I'm feeling confident going into this one!

Of course if you are KSU, OSU, TCU, this is your last chance, so from their standpoint, you can understand.
