than # 15 is getting this team shaped up for the Conference Tourney and even more important, the NCAA. The conference tourney is important because we really need to be clicking by then if we're going go deep into the NCAA T. Certainly last year's # 14 was far more important than # 15 is this year as it gave us the record by ourselves. And surely everyone understands that the end of the streak has to happen sometime! Have I given up on # 15, no, it could still happen, but coming together as a team will have to happen really quickly and I'm not sure it will. If you think things are going bad, go back with me to the years when we occasionally failed to win half of our games. You have to go back 38 years to find our last losing season! Not even Duke, UK or UNC can say that. What an incredible run, which is still on going. To say the least our younger fans are spoiled, greatly so.

It should be added that getting it all together as a team this year is also important for their success next year. Vick is the only one we lose for certain and that is probably more of a positive than a negative. We don't know what Dok or Lawson are going to do.

We wont have a losing record..in fact I see us losing 9..10 tops. Unless this team gels or an evangelist comes on down and heals Dok's ouchie we wont win the B12 tournament or make it out of the first weekend of the NCAAs. Especially with Self making bizarre moves like putting Vick in after we were doing well with Lightfoot and that zone. Me thinks Bill might has suffered a slight stroke..

My concern isn't having a losing record, which is why this season was included in the 38. Winning the B 12 tourney is not a big concern either, though hoping that we'll be clicking well enough by then to be considered a factor and able to have a good run in the NCAA. I believe we have the talent to do well in both, we just need to see this team clicking together better. If so, we'll be fine.

This team just isn't consistent enough to go on a roll in March. Too many guys just don't seem to be able to find their A game on a regular basis.

A lot can happen between now and March to enable them to get on a roll in March. They have the talent, Just need to get consistent and together.

Yes we have talent, but we don't have NBA talent like many years in the past 14. We graduated 2 players who play minutes in the NBA this season off last years team, and 2 from the season before. So when your discussing havving enough talent to win the Big 12, we do, but were on more of a level playing field this season with the rest of the Big 12.

I think Vick is a sixth man type player who when hot can go and get 20, but on most days, he good for 8-10 points. Garret is a good, almost great defender, but brings our offense down a slot.

Bill isn't coaching this team like he has coached teams in the past. This team is still committing December like turnovers, and showing very little in the way of believing in each other.

This is what I'm talking about when I say, "They have the talent, just need to get consistent and together." It's probably partly the kids' fault and partly Bill's, in other words, the team's fault as all of them make up the team.

Hopefully tonight is a harbinger of what is yet to come for this team, gutsy play.

For fun revisit or read about Danny and the Miracles. I know we don't have a Danny Manning, nor does anyone else this year, but read about how many losses we had going into ncaa tourney, how poor our chances of success were, or how great all the rest of the field would be, especially Oklahoma. Then put in CD and watch that championship run. Wonderous things do happen, just ask Jimmy Chipwood from Hosiers.

Wonderous things happen when you have a legend as Coach Brown, and an All-American in Manning. Revisit 1988 all you want, but had an easy path enroute. Murray ST, Xavier, and ETC.

That 88 team was plagued with injuries and other issues during the regular season. They got healthy and resolved issues before that tournament run. Basically playing to their expected potential. Again a Sweet 16 appearance is the best we can expect out of this years team.

We could get beat by a 14 seed in the tourney as well.
