It's almost that time again. Beginning tomorrow, we will once again walk through the Big 12 season, asking you to provide your predictions for each game of each week. But before we start, we should review how "The Crowds" fared last year. Below are the final regular season predictions the Rock M Nation consensus reached:
When this exercise was over, I was wary about three specific picks from "the crowds": Missouri, Oklahoma State and Kansas. Turns out, Rock M Nation virtually nailed Mizzou and Kansas, missing each by just a single game. Oklahoma State, on the other hand, overachieved considerably, and mostly at the expense of Texas, who, in a massive understatement, underachieved. In all, however, this was a damn stellar performance. The Crowds came within one game of nailing the conference record of eight of 12 teams, and within two games of nailing two more. Only OSU and Texas were huge misses, and considering nobody saw Texas' fade coming ... I'd say The Crowds get a solid A-. Ready to get an A this year? Voting starts tomorrow.
"The Crowds" missed horribly on the two teams below. Which was the biggest surprise to you?
