Our guard play is a question mark, but we are very young at that position. Also, we were playing 2 of the tougher teams in the country on the ROAD, let's see how they play these next 2 games and then maybe we could have a legitimate beef about playing time. I didn't hear any complaining when we were winning 8 in a row.
Our post defense is just as big of a question mark.
I think we can reasonably anticipate 2 wins in the next 4 games. 3 wins would be a huge bonus. I think Coach Mac just needs to sit the players down, tell them to forget about the last 2 games, and remember the first 3.
The way I see it, 4 out of the next 4 is very unlikely, but possible; 3 is not likely, but definitely possible and essentially necessary for us to finish with a winning record in and in the top half of the Big 12; 2 is difficult, but the most likely; 1 is dreadful, but possible; 0 is "when does football season start again?" time.
While CU and NU look winnable, I have a hard time believing we'll beat anybody on the road at this point. A&M and UT are more talented than us and I would consider it great if we get out of those two games with a split.
I think expectations are a good thing but there are a lot of unrealistic expectations with this fanbase around this team. We're 12-8 and coming off of two complete beatdowns and now we're going to win a Big 12 road game and beat UT or A&M? It's just bizarre.
Chalk me down for three wins. The two toughest road games are history. Wesley is wearing a game face, rashon needs to set some records, SH hit a three, Jiri is ready to score, Craig wants to dunk on CU, and BP will not be harrassed as much, and AT will be an A-Train at home.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
