Well aw shucks. My stance to wait and see how the season played out last year after the TT loss was correct. I don't know how it will play out this year but I plan to watch more Big 12 games before going on and on about how bad we are and how bad our players and coaching are. Losing Wade is just as detrimental to our fortunes as having an injured Keenan Evans was to TT last year. We need to get him back and playing well and that will be part of the story.
Again, those predicting a collapse and woe is us may be right this year. I plan to wait a while before jumping off the ledge.
And as a freindly reminder:
These are a few of the comments to my posts last year about letting the season play out and not judging it on a sample of two games. Last year it was WVU loss at home and the TT loss on the road.
1. I get the "wait and see" approach, I truly do. HOWEVER, what you no longer have to wait to see is that the ceiling is perilously low and the floor is rock bottom. This isn't conjecture, it's as plain as the nose on your face. (Guess the ceiling was actually the elite 8)
2. Don't care about the "other" teams we're tied with. That's not relevant to the topic. TCU is ranked and better than us. Do you think we'll finish ahead of them 15 games from now?
Right now this is a race to the bottom between us, ISU and Okie St. That's the way I see it shaking out. Wish I had better news for you, but as you know, the old jalopy just blew a tire. (Actually we finished in fourth place. Guess we lost the race.)
3. If we hit .500 in Big 12 play I will be shocked. (Did that)
4. But ,we are now into year six of his coaching tenure, and still hoping to be a "bubble" team, and hoping to "claw" our way to the upper division of this conference. (Well we did claw our way to the upper division)
