I say that there's a 100% chance we win the conference if we go 14-4 and the next best record is 13-5 (unless the chickens get a mulligan because DeSouza didn't play).
Agreed... a TCU win last night would have really put the hurting on KU, but none the less, they pulled it out at the last minute & overtime. KSU has to keep winning. Can't rely on KU to keep dropping games anymore, except to us!
Indeed, if you play with that tool and look at magic numbers. 7 is not a magic number, lets get that down to < 4. The lower that number gets the more pressure I feel, and I'm just a fat guy in the recliner. I feel a cardiac event brewing.BornWildcat wrote: ↑February 10th, 2019, 11:17 amI realize anything can happen, but this is fun to follow.
We are up to 59%.
I'll feel comfortable when/if we have a 3 game lead with 2 games left.

Well, now we are at 67% after the win at TX. I can't remember where we were when you started this post but I like 67% better than 55%. Also, we have an 88% chance of ending in the top two.

Listening to the radio this morning and Fox Sports goes thru the scores from last night and guess what... no mention at all. Ranked team on the road, at UT no less. Toughest conference in the country, first place team... it’s insane how national media across the board is blatantly attempting to ignore K State.

Personally I give ksu a 40% chance of winning the conference right now. I hate to be negative but from years past I think that somehow and someway ku is going to work their way back into the title.
I think it is true that KSU has about a 40% chance of winning the title outright this season. Certainly being up two games in the loss column is a strong position to be in, but there is a catch. The problem is that there are four teams that have only four losses. Given that those four teams are mostly going to lose only to each other (the other teams being weaker), there is a pretty good chance that at least one of them will finish 14-4. That means KSU probably has to finish 5-2 to get a share of the title and 6-1 to win outright. That is possible, but very difficult to do -- particularly with a road game at KU as one of those seven games. Now granted, the other six all look winnable, but winning them all will still be pretty hard to do.
