    Successful season question..

    At this point, what would you consider a "successful" season outcome to be?

    NCAA Tourney bid? What seed?
    NIT bid?
    CIT bid?
    Winning record?
    National Championship?
    Final four? Elite eight?

    Just curious what everyone is thinking..

    This, go big, or go home.

    But seriously, get in the dance and see what happens from there.

    Big Dance, preferably not an 8/9 seed.

    Re: Successful season question..

    Make the tourney and winning a Big 12 tournament game or two would be nice.

    Re: Successful season question..

    Win a game or two (or three) in the Big 12 Tourney and then win 2 or more games in the Big Dance. I expect that from this team, and think they are capable.

    Re: Successful season question..

    The first goal is the NCAA tournament. The second goal all depends on the seed.

    Re: Successful season question..

    I would absolutely love a CIT! ;)

    I'm getting greedy. I want a beneficial seed. I don't want to play a number one seed. We are not an elite team, but the fortunate seed can always be the difference between a sweet 16 and first round exit.

    Of course, a lot of basketball still to play. No post season still a possibility.
