    The positives (if any) to the lost

    I know everyone is very angry with the performance tonight. I sure was. However, I want this to be a positive thread instead of a meltdown one. So...

    Good things that came from lost


    • This was on the road, so it could have been worse if we would have lost on our own floor to them
    • This might finally be the wake-up call they need to see that they need to put 100% into every game.
    • Next game is at home, where we haven't lost in over a year.


    So, this lost definitely sucks, but we can rebound and play our best ball on Saturday. (hopefully)

    Re: The positives (if any) to the lost

    Losing to Tech and all 7 of their fans deserves no positives. How anyone on our team is absolutely ****** off out-of-their minds is beyond me. After about 5 minutes in the 2nd half EVERYONE knew we were in DEEP trouble and yet no one (coaches or players) seemed to want to change the situation. Season isn't over, but it just got a whole lot ********....


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: The positives (if any) to the lost

    There are a lot of threads out there to be negative, so if you do want to be negative, can you go to one of those threads, instead of being negative in a thread all about positives

    Remember what Ricky Bobby says.....

    We will hear about this game for the next year. The announcers already called it maybe the biggest upset in conference so far. And the refs were fair.

    The positive is now every team knows they just need to play a slow tempo and we will beat ourselves.
