REAL Standings: Fahrenheit -460 Edition


    Who says there is no such thing as absolute zero?
    That is what we had in the season’s first set of weekday games: Absolutely zero. Nothing happened. 
    REALly.  Absolutely zero happened. 
    Instead, every game went as projected. Meaning there was absolutely zero change in the REAL Standings. KU won at Home vs. Oklahoma, as projected. Texas won at Home vs. K-State, as projected. Baylor won at Home vs. Okie St, as projected. Iowa St won at Home vs. Texas Tech, as projected. And last, but also least, West Virginia won on the Road at TCU, a team two tiers lower in the pecking order, as projected.
    Accordingly, the Mountaineers remain atop the REAL Standings, still leading the pack by a half game.

Noon: Okie St at West Virginia (ESPNU) *1/2 (Projected W: WVU)

    It’s official. Phil Forte is out for the season. Don’t plan your day around this game unless you’re a Mountaineer fan.

2:00p.m.: Baylor at Iowa St (ESPN2) *** (Projected W: ISU)

The Big 12 Game of the Day. Can Baylor succeed where Tech failed?

3:30p.m.: K-State at Oklahoma (ESPN3) **1/2 (Projected W: OU)

It’s a pity party for poor K-State. Could easily be 2-0. Maybe should be 2-0.  Instead, they stand 0-2. OU in Norman is not normally where you go to stop the bleeding.  Not after the Sooners’ Monday night in Allen Fieldhouse.

6:00p.m.: Texas at TCU (ESPNU) **1/2 (Projected W: UT)

    Cam Ridley out for the season? How low can the Longhorns go? TCU low?

8:00p.m.: KU at Tech (ESPNU) *** (At risk game)

    More than one Tier 1 team is destined to fall in Lubbock. The ultimate Big 12 champion will likely win there.
