    Didn't we do this about the same time last season?

    Same bat time, same bat channel.

    I am assuming the ballots are not made public ... I wonder which coach(es) either secretly love us or Coach Kruger? Guesses?

    My guess ... I suppose will be that Scott Drew voted us #24 so it will look better if we could get ranked by the time we play his Baylor team ... Really though who knows

    My second guess is that it was Coach Clue(le)ss that voted us #24 ... OMG I need to sleep lol ... En esa nota jajaja Buenas noches

    We had only lost 1 game up to this point last year, however, this team has played a tougher schedule than last especially Gonzaga. After watching other Big 12 schools, I still feel good about squeaking our way into the dance.

    I admittedly did not see the aTm game but I just simply do not see us as a Tourney team. 17 or 18 wins, slightly better than last season.

    I could definitely see that happening, however, many games last year we were in or leading at half and just couldn't finish due to depth. I am banking on top 4 in conference. Just looking over the conference, the teams are not very strong this year and I feel every game is a toss up.

    Look, I'm not going to come after you this time because you've stated you've had serious health issues. But, stereotypes happen for a reason. You really do seem to only show up when it suits you. That being said, I don't wish you (or anyone else) bad health.

    I have been here all season. Gave opinions. I missed A game and kept my mouth shut because I didn't see it. Would I have been a better or worse fan for stating an opinion about a game I didn't see?

    S F. Austin is actually a good team(of course we should have won still) but again FWIW they smoked TU 57-41 as well as won vs USD and FIU.


    Oh well hopefully we got that bad shooting, etc. out of our system and will go back to getting ready for Conf. play

    Not really as I specifically stated that despite what I was saying we still should have won. I was simply pointing out that SFA is better than one would think if they just went off of name recognition.

    Same song that was played after Texas-Arlington and UTEP. Go look at their schedules. I'm not buying into the bullshit. Tell yourselfwhatever you like to make yourself better but I will live in the realm of reality.

    But I feel like my opinion is the realistic one ... How will we ever settle this?

    We won't. You'll continue to think winning by slim margins (and even sometimes losing) against mediocre to bad teams is a good sign. I however will not.

    Haha I do not believe I ever said losing is/was a "good sign" as neither of us are "Aggies" despite w/e disagreement might be in play ...

    I just hope that offensive performance that was on display vs SFA(or one like it) does not show it's ugly head again this season as we draw closer to heading into Conf. play. If we can get our shit together I truly think(and even you might not disagree? lol) that we have the ability to win each time out(obviously this is excepting games vs KU) which could not have been said about us last season during Big XII play ...

    This team's athleticism/size is actually better than a lot of good teams in what is a watered down NCAAB field

    lol okay if you have not seen *my criticisms then IDK what to say but posting that this OU team has a chance in all of our Conf. games except vs KU isn't all that "out there" I don't think ... Is it?



    *- Look for posts about Kenny Stills, James Patton, Josh H. as play calling OC
