The Rod McGoober scored 28, half their KSU points. All we need to do is play good defense on him.
Some of you "fans" just love to wallow in your own misery. Pretty pathetic.
I agree. I think I find myself having a hard time getting excited about this years basketball team. I think not seeing our team win a big game at home for so long has something to do with this. Thats generally where excitement grows. We've won the games we should, but none more.
I think excitement/optimism will start to grow if we show we can beat someone.
I am not wallowing in any misery. I am happy with our team and our prospects. I hope Hoiberg figures out how to put what he has together. I don't think they have been doing the greatest job with this so far. I am sure they will out of necessity in the coming days. They certainly need to keep Clyburn away from the point position.
15 game Hilton win streak.
NOT IN OUR HOUSE!
I disagree slightly with the statement about non-conference schedule -- ISU's SOS is still sub-100. It isn't Tech-Awful, for sure, but it drags things down a little bit.
This RPI snapshot is encouraging, though, because there could be as many as 10 top-50-RPI opportunities if KSU's goes up and the others don't drop too much — 5 teams, 2 games apiece. Of course, you have to win some of them. And it'd be nice if more teams got into top-25 RPI.
Your overall point is a "take care of business" assessment. Overall, true, but it will require above .500.
Using current ranking as guide:
Sweep TCU & Tech
No worse than split with Texas/WVa (preferably, 3-1)
A combo of at least a 5-5 record vs. the others.
That's probably the minimum for a lock. Slightly less could get it done, but it's iffy territory.
I think our SOS is appropriate. Im sure Hoiberg expected to beat at least one of those ranked teams. Maybe I would have tried to get one more good team at Hilton. (easier said than done) I wish Michigan was at Hilton this year. It would have been perfect. They are currently #2 in the nation and it would've been a huge boost.
I love seeing Nebraska at 48, Hawks at 91.
Let's see how this affects us in Lunardi's Bracketology which will be released tomorrow.
