I just feel like throwing up. Can't fault the effort by these kids, and they deserve to get one. I really feel like they could put it back together for a late season run (of sorts) if they can just get over the top on one of these.
I had previously predicted 18-14 and an NIT birth and have remained pretty optimistic to this point, but tonight I reached my breaking point.
I believe in Fred as the long term solution and I believe better things are ahead. But this year's team, judging from body language, has quit. At 14-2, although I knew we'd struggle in the Big 12, I never thought we'd see this kind of collapse from this bunch.
I believe now we will not win another game. Would that be a school record for consecutive losses?
And I hope I'm wrong about this last point, but judging again strictly from body language I would not be completely shocked if Ejim wasn't back next year.

It bothers me that we're going to finish 11th or 12th in the conference because we honestly aren't that bad compared to some of the Big 12 teams. We've completely blown 3 conference games now. Not games we "coulda" won, these games were all but ours and we give them away.
