Whoopity doo. A book about a team that has a record streak in a somewhat mediocre conference. Somewhat impressive but i won't rush out to buy that book anytime soon. Win a few more National Championships and then I will buy a book.

Well my phoggy friend, each to their own opinion. You can "whoopity doo" all you want but many sports writers, coaches, and fans think that it is quite an accomplishment. Most that I've read or heard place it above the UCLA 13 streak as the competition has been stronger against KU. Get that sour look off of your face, stop and smell the roses once in a while and enjoy something that will go down in history, especially if we can pull off # 14.

Sure it is an accomplishment..I just don't think the B12 is very good. Thus thats why KU dominates but yet they don't fare as well as many think they should in the post season. KU would never win 13 straight in the B10 or ACC...or even the SEC. But it is or will be a record so congratulations will be in order..But if they indeed get it and lose in a S16 game I will consider the season as a whole disappointing..

I mean the Braves won over 10 straight division championships in baseball but none of their fans made a big deal out of it. Thats because they only squeezed one World Series title out of it. So just call me a bad fan for not making a big deal of the streak as others. But again it is impressive and the only team capable of doing it again would of course be old KU. Unless moved to the B10 of course..lol

Could'a, would'a, should'a Ku won 13 straight in another major conference, we'll never know. These past 13 years can never be replicated. I think those questions are moot anyway.

What we do know is that in recent years in NO other conference does any team play every team every year. You don't always play all of the best teams in the conference. In the Big 12 not only does this happen, but we play every team twice and one of those games is always an away game. That makes the schedule much more difficult than in other conferences. In the Big 12 the teams get to know each other much better. In addition, it is the goal of EVERY Big 12 team to beat KU. They get themselves up for the KU games. This means KU most likely get every team's best shot, especially at our opponent's house.

I think that the Big 12 is one of the better basketball conferences. But that is actually a moot question. Whether they are or aren't doesn't really make much difference. In light of what I've given as facts makes the Big 12 a much more difficult conference to consistently win championships. But KU does and that makes the 13 an incredibly wonderful exciting and difficult achievement. I, for one, am very proud of what they have accomplished and will be even more proud if they can add # 14 to the total.

The streak meant more early on to me than now. Back when the Big 12 was loaded with more talented teams. In the recent years this conference has not been as talented. Do we win with talent or coaching? Loaded question, I know. We out talent most teams on most nights. Yes, Self recruited this talent, and Self does coach this talent, but its easier to win when your teams are more talented 1-8 than the others. If KU wins the conference title this season, I will give most of the credit to Self, and this would be one of his better coaching jobs ever.

Now with saying that about the conference title streak, I do think Self is a great coach. I also think that he is ovverated when it comes to the Tourney.
