Time For The Cowboys To Help Themselves

The Cowboys aren’t getting any help in their hopes – dreams? – of becoming an NCAA Tournament team.
Kansas State, bouncing along the bubble with OSU, figured to absorb a blow Monday night against newly-minted No. 1 Kansas. Except the Jayhawks didn’t last the day enjoying their place atop the national rankings, falling to the Wildcats in Manhattan.
This is the same K-State team that pulled out a win in the final seconds at Iowa State, putting an interesting spin on their 5-6 league mark.
Colorado remained in race – and ahead of the Cowboys – with a weekend win over K-State. And A&M strengthened its position with a wild week, outlasting the Buffs in overtime, then winning a close one at Texas Tech. Both were three-point wins.
A little help, somebody?
Time for the Cowboys to help themselves.
The Big 12 standings, a jumbled mess in the middle entering last weekend, are starting to sort out around OSU.
The Cowboys, headed for No. 3 Texas on Wednesday, now reside in an eighth-place tie with Nebraska, which beat the Pokes Saturday.
Speculation suggests six Big 12 teams will get bids. And fewer and fewer bracketologists are giving the Cowboys much of a chance.
