The past 2 have been E8 and ending KU's run in the B12. 

not trying to directly contradict you, but it is hilarious how both those seasons have the maximum amount of "meh" sprinkled in. the E8 run was largely due to the first ever 16 beating a 1 (the kentucky win was great) and getting demolished by Loyola. last season was a dr pepper but it was a tie, we lost to UC Irvine, and the team we tied with made the national championship game. it's the curse of oscar.

I don't really follow this stuff, but it seems like our strength of scuedule is pretty respectable lately.

Oh, you're absolutely right.  A low flying oscar team will find some magic and a high flying oscar team will disappoint.  That inconsistency has to be a direct reflection on his coaching.

Never getting to use Wade in the tourney was a big part of his demise

Didn't think we'd hear a Washington Nationals reference from oscar....I approve of it was an awesome World Series/Parade here in DC. Aggieville would burn to the ground if they won a National Title in Basketball

He deserves credit for beating Kentucky without Wade but I would also hope he could beat some double-digit seeds without him.  The way Loyola beat us, I don't know that Wade would've made a difference

That’s totally fair, but I’d like to think last years run would have been different with him.

He was the biggest part of our stretch run to win the conference.

This conference is bad, like actually bad and not the bad we hear from dumb football fans who don't watch basketball and say that when a top two team loses to a bottom two team.

The conference is second in kenpom but almost certainly will fall to third. The last time they were third was '12-'13. That year the non con losses were as follows, the order is conference order of finish.
KU 2
KSU 4
OSU 4
MOLD 5
OU 5
BAYLOR 5
TEXAS 7
WVU 7
TECH 5
TCU 5

Again, those are only non conference losses. The conference is in a similar state this year. I say all of that to say I think we can get to 7-11.

I waffled between that and 6-12. There are a lot of teams in the conference that have a lot of losses in them.
