    Will a win tomorrow counterbalance Wednesday's loss?

    Would definitely be a confidence booster at a time when the team probably needs it.

    Thoughts?

    Nope, sky has already fallen. We're going to lose the rest of the games we play this season by 30+ points unless CFH personally comes to thus site and gets his whupping by the internet tough guys...

    Re: Will a win tomorrow counterbalance Wednesday's loss?

    To me it would counterbalance the Drake loss.

    A win over Michigan and we're likely 11-2 going into conference play. That would be amazing, all things considered. 10-3 wouldn't be the end of the world but that's too many losses given the schedule we've played.

    Win tomorrow and the past couple of weeks will fade into distant memory quickly.

    Re: Will a win tomorrow counterbalance Wednesday's loss?

    It would be okay if we made it with two losses, not three, through the nonconference. That means Iowa is dead meat.

    Re: Will a win tomorrow counterbalance Wednesday's loss?

    IMHO, yes it would. I put the bar at 3 losses in noncon, with 2 being "we're good", 3 being "not the end of the world but not great" and anything more than 3 and we're in deep trouble. We can get through our noncon with only 2 losses, that would be pretty solid.

    It does suck particularly that the 2 losses would be to Drake and UNI, but would it really be any different if we won all the other non-con games and lost to, say, Rice and Grand Valley State?

    That said, I don't see us pulling ourselves together quick enough to win tomorrow.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Any football win trumps anything basketball wise unless its a tournament win. So if we win the Kstate game and then the upcoming bowl game I will be tickled pink throughout basketball season.

    If a win helps between the ears, I'm all for it.

    Re: Will a win tomorrow counterbalance Wednesday's loss?

    I think it does.

    If a team is going to "find" itself it usually takes place on the road, in a hostile environment, with their backs against the wall. They have a great opportunity tomorrow.

    Never to high, never to low.

    Yes, this team really needs to show they can move on and play like they should.

    I'm a basketball guy first so I would rather see the basketball team win.
