The Big 12 basketball coaches cast their Big 12 basketball polls on Thursday and look who split the top spot:

1. OSU — 77 points
1. Kansas — 77 points

3. Baylor — 63 points
4. Iowa State — 56 points
5. Oklahoma — 43 points
5. Kansas State — 43 points
7. West Virginia — 35 points
8. Texas — 30 points
9. Texas Tech — 14 points
10. TCU — 12 points

So five coaches voted OSU No. 1 (nine points) and the other four voted them No. 2 (eight points) and the same for Kansas (you don’t vote for your own team).[1. The math: a first-place vote is nine points, a second-place vote is eight points so 5*9 + 4*8 = 77.]

Which is just perfect.

My only hope for this season is that OSU-KU lives up to the hype because both of those games could be all-time jewels. Marcus Smart’s return to the Phog, Wiggins’ first trek to GIA. Man, when is football over?!

This is also true and I think will happen.

This is the third time OSU has been picked to win the Big 12. Its history is not pretty..

2004-05 — Finished 3rd
1998-99 — Finished tied for 5th (!)

The only time it won the Big 12 (2003-04 season) it was picked to finish 5th.

Lastly, Kansas has at least shared nine straight Big 12 titles. That’s scary.

For fun…
