We had tons of opportunities on offense. We could not shoot threes. We could not pass inside. We could not pass cross court. We could not shoot threes. We could not shoot free throws. We could not get rebounds. We could not keep the ball in bounds. It was a team effort.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
Yeah, again I agree with CycloneErik here. I never freak out about these losses early in the year. But this is a bad bad bad loss. This isn't like losing to a number 100 rpi, bad team like Texas on the road. This is like losing to a D2 team later in the year. Tech really isn't even a D1 team if you look at it. It is going to take some heavy lifting and you can't afford any hiccups now. Need to win out at home plus beat Texas, WVU and OU on the road. And even then you might need a B12 tourney win. I think they can do it, but wow this is a bad loss. One of the worst bball losses I can remember actually.
It's a horrible loss resume-wise, no question, mainly because so far there are no big wins to balance it.
Winning out at home along with those 3 road wins is a tournament lock, unless the national picture makes a weird U-turn.
The question is whether this team can pull that off.
I think the only home loss that we can afford to have would be KU. Win the rest at home and we still have to win at least 2/3 road games against the likes of OU, OSU, K State, and Baylor. And no more bad losses, of course.
