Looking For A Reason To Actually Watch The Big 12 Tournament?

Are you looking for a reason to watch the 2015 Big 12 tourney this year?  Me too, and I’ve thought of something fun! Introducing…THE BIG 12 TOURNAMENT DEATH POOL!

Get ten friends together and pick a team name out of a hat. In case you don’t know the teams in this year’s tournament, here they are as they are seeded:

  1. Kansas
  2. Iowa State
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Baylor
  5. West Virginia
  6. Oklahoma St.
  7. Texas
  8. Kansas St.
  9. TCU
  10. Texas Tech

The best part about this is that 60 percent of the time any one of these teams can beat another one EVERY TIME!

Just the other day number eight beat number one, and the number eight fans may or may not have committed various misdemeanors when they rushed the court. That was almost as classy as the racist song a frat from number three school sang on bus while in tuxedoes.

Anyway, there is a lot to root against in this league, but why not root for it? Pretty much any team in this league – maybe minus number nine or ten - could beat the New Orleans Pelicans one night and then lose to the Natick High School JV Girls team the next.

What I’m saying is this tournament is evenly matched.

The Big 12 is probably the most highly-contested conference in the NCAA, but I am very doubtful that any of these teams can make it to the Final Four. I know some of you might think that Texas is a good team with some formidable big men who are some of the best shot-blockers in the game, and “Texas may have a shot at winning it all.” I put that phrase in quotes because I couldn’t resist refraining from typing for a second and saying it out loud in a sarcastic tone while making the universal gesture for jerking off with my right hand.

I won’t come out and say that this conference is garbage, even if you’re thinking it. If one of these teams can keep their shit together long enough, they could make a deep run, maybe even into late March. Do I think it will happen? No. But I do think choosing a team out of a hat to cheer for will make this conference tournament a lot more fun to watch…

Wait, there’s more: Stephen A. Smith Is An Idiot, Thinks Chip Kelly Is A Racist

You have got to see this shit:

RIP, Windell…
