Kemba Walker and UCONN won 5(!) straight Big East games to win their conference tournament and then ran the table as a three seed.

Prior to that wasn’t it kind of like a Whole Thing that winning the big East tourney was kind of a kiss of death WRT performance in the ncaa tourney? And there was lots of speculation that the winning team was just exhausted from running the gauntlet

The correlation is that most national champions are conference champions because teams good enough to win the national championship are good enough to win a conference tournament.

The big 12 championship game is on a Saturday night, the teams playing in it will either get 4 or 5 days rest. I'm 250 pounds and nearly 47 years old, I could climb a goddamned mountain with 4 days rest.

It's not an exhibition to us because we've barely won dick in our lifetimes, I'll be damned if I'm gonna too cool for school a trophy I've never seen us win.
If you can promise me the Cats will have enough gas in the tank for the NCAA's I will go all in on the Big 12 tournament.

To win the Big 12 tourney, you have to win three games against the level of opponent you would face to make an Elite 8 or even Final 4. Just want the Cats to be fresh and healthy for the next weekend. The postseason is a lot of fun when the Cats are a contender.

TBH it's really only the first weekend you have to really worry about fatigue from a conference tounry. After that it's a game by game thing.

can someone explain to me why the Phillips isn’t just a meaningless exhibition like they say bowl games are? Shouldn’t the Cats just keep their chowder dry for the Tour-na-ment?

no good reason to try to win tournament games either, really.  or any games.  dry chowder till you die, like my grandfather always said.

That being said, a Big 12 team has to at least make the F4, and/or win the tourny now

Option A:  song sucks because I'm old.

Option B: song sucks and I'm old.

I too was disappointed as I sat on my porch listening along.  I mean, it's great that Eminem has come out of retirement for this BigXII commercial but I definitely did NOT lose myself in the music... the moment... nor did I want it.  I better let it go.
