Non-conference schedules have consequences.

We’re now trying to compare different kinds of apples with almost everyone in conference-only play, but there’s going to be a problem all year long with the Big 12.

Oklahoma is playing a whole lot better now than it did at the start of the season, and it didn’t lose its cream-puff game against Missouri State. However, it did lose to Kansas State and Iowa State, and those two teams lost at home to Sun Belt teams.

So to be totally fair after the Oklahoma State loss to Texas – as wrong as it might be – the entire Big 12 technically should be ranked below a whole slew of teams in the Sun Belt.

But Oklahoma looks great, right? Yeah, but does it look great because it’s improving, or is it because it beat up on a bad Texas Tech team and whacked a TCU squad that also lost to Kansas State and Iowa State? It’s the former, but …

What do you do with Tulsa, who lost to Oklahoma State? And that’s where this all breaks down. If you wanted to, you could six-degree the Tulsa loss to Cowboys all the way to North Carolina, which then wipes out most of the ACC teams.

So here’s how we’re going to do this.

Iowa State, Kansas State, and Kansas will be eternally punished for their Sun Belt loss sins, but that’s as far as it goes. This is when reason and judgment have to enter more into the picture.
