    "i believe this team will contend for the Big 12 title, no question. Team is talented, and we will have one of the biggest mis matches in the league with white. I also think its a huge benefit that a lot our team this year is older which usually equals stronger, and smarter.

    we will have 4-5 options beyond the arc every single night... ejim will finally be free to play where he is comfortable.. we are deep and good."

    That was before the season, that's not impressive at all, we all thought we would be really good. What's more impressive is when I was defending this team after our loss to either UNI or Michigan. Everyone was jumping off the wagon, and saying Lutz was our coach last year, Fred sucks. I said "This team WILL be good." The only poster that agreed with me was Cyber.

    I hope this isn't crossing the offensive barrier CF recently put in place. If so, mods feel free to delete.

    I'm sure that will get pulled (as it should), but you just made my morning.

    Well, we could have had a bad year. And today you could have still said that you called it:

    Tedcyclone01-01-2012, 08:10 PM

    " I feel like this team is what it is at this point. Have some talent, but not always going to play really hard. I wonder if they are playing hard, and it just seems like they are not as we have some skilled players. Kind of what Donovan McNab was. Seemed lazy, but was just good and methodical. Either way, we dont seem like a very good team this year."

    I think this falls under the category of if you throw enough **** at the wall, some of it is bound to stick.

    You should buy Fred and Dedric some beers. They both helped push the right buttons to get this team over the hump.

    I don't think I posted in that thread because I didn't want to get bashed but I was still pulling for us to be good. It takes time is all I was thinking. We obviously beat UNI and Drake now and Michigan would be a terrific game.
