FWIW, I think we go on the big run to the dance.
'Thanks for the amazing insight. Give both ends of the spectrum and then you can come back after the season and say you were right.'
My point was I don't think there will be any middle ground as most here think. Do you have an opinion our do you just enjoy being a dick?
The last two games were a mirror of what happened last year. Inability to close out games. Easily could have had 3-5 more wins. This years team has much more talent, but they still have to prove they can close out. If they learn how to win close games they could make NCAA tourney. If not it will be another season of what ifs and if onlys.
Again, just need to take this one game at a time. IMO, we just played the two best teams in the league....(wait til Baylor has to play these guys too, they will have a couple losses as well.) Need to just get the job done and win against the Pokes. I fully expect the Clones to get back and win against OSU and Tech this week. Then, this leads into a BIG week playing @Texas and KU for the revenge game @ Home.
I think we are easily one of the top 5 teams in this league. It all starts with a solid effort against OSU wed, and get back on track.
Agree with this. I just hoped they learned something from this past week and can improve from it. They went toe to toe with two top 10 teams this week with very good chances to win both of the games.
The last 5 minutes of the game they got decent looks, shots just were not falling. People like to hammer on CA but the guy can score and Freddy has given him the green light to do so. He takes some ill advised shots but also does a ton of good that outweighs the bad.
They have a shot to go on a nice conference run starting this week. This IS a tourney team. They just have to tie up a few loose ends.
I have a gut feeling that there will be two outcomes possible for every remaining game this season. We will either 1) win or 2) lose.
Think about that for a second.

I think this season goes one of three ways, either we dominate and finish near the top of the league, we play so-so and finish in the middle, or we play crappy and we finish near the bottom.
If we arent mad as hell for the next few games, i dont know how to make these guys mad. Two close loses hopefully will spark a fire
I think this team is perfectly capable of improving much more by tournament time. They need to make some adjustments (like on shot selection), but there is enough talent there to be very good the rest of the season. I honestly think they can beat anyone in the Big 12 now that I have seen all the teams at least once on tv. The road games will be tough.....but they just played pretty well at probably the toughest venue in the Big 12. A very encouraging thing to me is that so far.....they have not been blown out by anyone (Michigan could have been). It will be interesting to see how this season develops.
Plus.....can't wait until next year already.....even more talent coming in.
our largest loss is 9 points this season. very encouraging, but also a sign that we can't close games
