    Is National Media Finally Recognizing Royce?

    This article has Royce White as a preseason 4th best player in the Big 12. Am I hearing this right???? Someone out there is actually recognizing a player on our team as something better than a mangled batch of 12th place misfit kids waiting to explode in scandal? Nice to see Royce getting some good publicity, while at the same time, 4th place is quite the bold prediction, even for a devout Royce White fan like myself. Lets hope it comes through!!!!

    Was this article written by the child-actor that was in Jerry Maguire?

    For something more sober, Royce is a fantastic talent. He's going to have a great year.

    I'm as excited as anybody, but at this point, we really do need to let him play an actual game first.

    It's difficult to say "finally" when Royce has yet to play a game of college basketball.

    I agree. I just think we should temper our expectations. If you let things run wild, you'll get disappointed in a hurry, I'm afraid...

    I'm not tempering my expectations for this team. If I end up dissappointed, so be it.

    Exactly. There is no reason not to be excited and expect good things from this team for at least the next two years... if not more(young recruits aren't looking bad).

    Been disappointed before. I'll be disappointed by things in the future.

    That said, I'm also refusing to temper my expectations for this team. I expect us to be very, very good. Should be a great year in Hilton.

    That's a ranking of the best fantasy players, not necessarily the best real players. That being said, fantasy value matches real-life value pretty well in basketball.

    I'd rep you, but I have to spread it around, but I agree, don't tell me to temper my expectation. I'm a big boy. I can handle it if they don't meet my expectations.

    To me the future is so bright, I gotta wear shades

    IMHO, we've seen so many bad years recently, everyone is scared to get exited. It's ok to jump on the bandwagon. They are our team, get pumped, get exited, have expectations if you want. It's going to be as good of year as we've had in a long time.
