Texas is just too damn big. The Bat Cats travel to Lubbock this weekend for a Big 12 series with Texas Tech, but unfortunately that is still about an eight-hour drive from where I live.
The Red Raiders enter this series 17-21 (4-11 Big 12). Of course that means they are the ninth-place team in the 10-team Big 12, with only our beloved Cats behind them. As such, this is a huge series for K-State. If we don't take two of three, we can pretty much forget about going to Oklahoma City for the Big 12 tournament. Unfortunately, Tech is in pretty much the same situation, and the Red Raiders are at home this weekend.
In other Big 12 action this weekend...
Texas A&M vs. Baylor (one in College Station, two in Waco)
Texas vs. Oklahoma State (Austin)
Oklahoma vs. Missouri (Norman)
Nebraska vs. KU (Lincoln)
I'll be keeping tabs on the game tonight, but will be at the Kingwood Classic (AAU basketball tournament) most of the day tomorrow. Use the comments as an open thread to discuss the games.
