#34 in USA Today poll
#34 in USA Today poll
gotta start somewhere, BOOMER!!
Didn't we do this about the same time last season?
Same bat time, same bat channel.
Okay either one of these coaches ranked us #24 or two of them ranked us #25
I am assuming the ballots are not made public ... I wonder which coach(es) either secretly love us or Coach Kruger?

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 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.
And that's the end of that.
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?
So um that was a ****ing terrible pathetic loss last night but I still think we have a chance at being top 4 in conference.
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
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
*- Look for posts about Kenny Stills, James Patton, Josh H. as play calling OC
