On Friday, while everyone was busy talking about an obscure professional athlete returning to his hometown team, Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield -- who was at the LeBron James Skills Academy this week, fittingly enough -- dropped a rather bold prediction about the 2014-15 Big 12.
"We're gonna win the Big 12," Hield told CBS' Jeff Borzello. "I'm saying it right now, we're gonna win the Big 12."
Iowa State forward Georges Niang disagreed:

One can only assume Niang was so incredulous because he assumes, like the rest of us, that Kansas is going to win the Big 12. (Kansas always wins the Big 12.)
