Last night the Longhorns extended their current winning streak to 11 games with a win over Oklahoma State. This is an impressive win streak as anyone can remember for the Longhorns, as they have some big wins under their belt over a good Aggie team and a win on the road at Kansas. But even with those wins the Longhorns still couldn’t get to the top of the poll. Then the lucky day happened where the Ohio State Buckeyes got knocked off and most people thought Texas would be the new number one. But Kansas was given the nod in the last poll and now they suffered a huge loss at the hands of their in-state rival Kansas State.
After that bit of news, it is up in the air if the Longhorns will get the nod to number one. Some people seem to think that Ohio State will get the bump back up to the top spot. Which seems crazy to me because I think Texas is the better team right now and is more deserving of the top ranking. But at this point of the season, who is number one doesn’t really matter. The main thing any fan wants to see is their team have a one or two ranking in the tournament and finish the tournament as number one. So, even if the polls slight Texas again, most fans won’t throw a fit because it is the end result that matters the most.
