Big 12 rankings, Week 3: The “Office Space” edition

Standard

Texas moved a step closer to a Big 12 title, hammering Oklahoma State on the road and picking up yet another double-digit win at home Saturday against Missouri. The Week Three Big 12 rankings are brought to you by “Office Space” (plus-one for a road win, minus one for a home loss):

1. TEXAS (18-3, 6-0, +3): It’s not that Longhorns are winning … it’s that they’re dominating good teams. If it wins Monday at Texas A&M, Texas may run away with the Big 12 championship. Right now, the Longhorns are “the Bobs” of the conference (Losing? I wouldn’t say Texas has been missin’ it) …

2. KANSAS (20-1, 5-1, +2): Maybe the heartbreaking ordeal Thomas Robinson and his sister are dealing with brought this team together. Or maybe they just beat two teams (Colorado and Kansas State) that are in free-fall mode. Bill Self reminds me a little of this guy …

3. TEXAS A&M (17-3, 4-2, +1): The Aggies are pretty good at home (and they’ll need to be Monday against Texas), but the road is a different story. As for those folks who had A&M in the Big 12 title chase … let’s not jump to conclusions …

4. MISSOURI (17-4, 3-3, Even):  Missouri might as well be Texas A&M. Dominant at home, not so much on the road. The Tigers might be in trouble if Laurence Bowers is out for an extended period after taking a wicked elbow to the face against Texas. As for the Tigers’ title hopes? …

5. BAYLOR (14-6, 4-3, Even): The Bears had to scrap to win at home against struggling Colorado. Now they’ve got back-to-back road games against Oklahoma and Texas A&M. If Baylor manages to win both, Scott Drew’s reaction …

6. NEBRASKA (15-5, 3-3, Even): Give Doc Sadler credit for taking a roster without a lot of talent and putting it on the NCAA bubble. Yet, Cornhusker fans are more concerned with signing day …

7. COLORADO (14-8, 3-4, Even): The Buffaloes looked like the surprise team in the league two weeks ago, now they’ve got …

8. OKLAHOMA (11-9, 3-3, Even): Have to admit, the Sooners have as many conference wins as I thought they’d get all season. That takes the cake …

9. OKLAHOMA STATE (14-7, 2-5, -1): This is a big week for the Cowboys, who get Missouri and Oklahoma at home – must-win games. Lately, watching OSU has been a little awkward, like this …

10. KANSAS STATE (14-8, 2-5, -1): The Wildcats’ season is officially on life support after Saturday’s beating at rival Kansas. Frank Martin and KSU fans are this mad …

11. TEXAS TECH (11-11, 3-4, -1): The way the Red Raiders are playing lately, there may not be any TPS reports on Pat Knight’s firing …

12. IOWA STATE (14-8, 1-6, -3): This team is bad, really bad. The Cyclones have been taking a beating lately …
