    We Are Not A Good Team...On School Nights

    We are 6-6 on games on Monday-Thursday compared to 12-2 on Friday-Sunday. Games on weekdays include:

    • Loss to Drake
      Loss to UNI
      Loss at Okie State
      Loss at Baylor
      Only home B12 loss against Mizzou
      Close home wins against Okie State and Kansas State


    We need to skip more classes.

    If that's the case, I hope our first round game in the Big Dance is on Friday instead of Thursday.

    I don't think it's a big deal, but it is the reason I didn't bet my measly credits on ISU tonight.

    It'll be spring break, so not a 'school night'.

    Re: We Are Not A Good Team...On School Nights

    We just played a road game at a top 10 team... Please do not freak out just yet. We are a good team because if any team was shooting as well as Baylor was tonight they would have blown out any other opponent by over 25. They simply shot lights out.

    Re: We Are Not A Good Team...On School Nights

    I think it is the short rest. It's the Saturday-Tuesday schedule or the Saturday-Monday schedule. I bet if we played Thursday-Saturday we would lose the Saturday games.

    This of course does not bode well for any tournamens we find ourselves in (i.e. Big 12, NIT, NCAA). Oh well, got to get there first.

    Our Saturday losses both came after Wednesday games, so coupled with the fact that we're a "gameplan" defense according to Heft, you make a very interesting point.

    Maybe our coaches are just really good at coming up with game plans, and our players at executing them, given enough time.

    Maybe one coach game plans the weekday games, and one gameplans the weekend games. Somebody better inform Pollard of what's going on.
