So all of you guys that are predicting only 2 wins in conference answer me on question, do you think this years team is worse than last years? I personally do not, I don't think it's even close. We played very well against some very good big 12 teams last year and I think we can improve on that this year and actually win some of those games.[/QUO
almost every team in the big 12 is better this year than last, except for OU and mizzou
So you think Neb and Col are a ton better this year than last? Or how about Tech and A&M? Some are and some aren't. I don't think you can automatically call these loses just yet.
Thought everyone could use a little reality check and a break from all of the negative threads regarding the men's basketball team.
Here are the facts:
- Finished the non-confernce schedule with an 11-4 record.
- Three of the four losses were against Cal on their home court, Duke at a neutral site, and UNI. Those are three NCAA tourney teams folks, not the end of the world.
- The loss to Northwestern will be our only 'bad' loss come the end of the year and that came at another 'neutral site'.
At the start of the season I expected us to finish the non-conference at 12-3 so we are not that far away. It will take 20 wins to get to the big dance and while it won't be an easy run in conference we really only need to play 500 ball the rest of the way (8-8 conference record) and get 1 win in the Big 12 tourney to get to 20.
My guess is that this board will be singing a bit of a different tune after we win our first game in the big dance and are 1 win away from the sweet 16.
It will all come together folks. You just gotta have some faith!
This is an outstanding post..well said. Let's see what happens.
