We'll answer all those questions, plus guess which teams they'll upset and which will upset them after The Jump.

Overall Record (they play 30 games):

Evan Pfaff: 17-13
Matt Patton: 18-12

Joe Loyd: 18-12

Upset Watch

Surprise game they'll win: 

EP: Maybe not a surprise, but they'll beat West Virginia in Wichita.

MP: Home against Texas A&M

JL: Not going to 100% predict but I think at home against KU the Wildcats have a good chance

Surprise game they'll lose: 

EP: At Oklahoma on January 14. They'll come off back-to-back-to-back games at KU and versus Mizzou and Baylor and will face Texas in the next game.  If they lose those first three games, morale will be low when they travel to Norman.

MP: at Texas Tech

JL: The last game of the season at home against Oklahoma State, K-State simply does not play good usually against the Cowboys

2011-2012 K-State Projected Big 12 Record (18 games):

EP: 8-10

MP: 8-10

JL: 9-9

2011-2012 K-State Projected Big 12 Standing:

EP: 7th

MP: 6th

JL: 5th

NCAA? NIT? No postseason?

EP: NIT

MP: NIT

JL: NCAA - Going to say they get a win in Big 12 Tourney to sneak into the field
