    What I'd like to think...going forward...

    and I'm not the most positive person in the world...BUT...I think we are due for some breaks.

    I like to think that we are going to see all of the luck we got screwed out of this season come back to us in the tournaments.

    Ladies and gentleman...I give you the B12 Tournament and NATIONAL Champion Iowa State Cyclones.


    I've never seen a team this good get so many bad breaks. I think we're due for a change of luck. And it's coming at the right time.

    I'd like to think that karma will be rewarding us big time in March after the way this year has gone

    Re: What I'd like to think...going forward...

    After a long grouchy day with a sore throat and running on two hours sleep, I think I'm finally ready to go Captain Dan and make my peace with God on this.

    I think the players realize, without question, that you have to make your own breaks because they aren't just going to happen. I think they'll come out even tougher and moe focused.

    I just hope we don't collapse after this. We have plenty of good basketball left.

    I hope we finish the season strong and this doesn't keep us on the bubble for the Ncaa's. (or worse yet, 1st 4 out)

    Do you mean Lieutenant Dan? Or maybe you're referring to Captain Dan the pirate rapper. (I won't link him. It's pretty terrible)

    This is what i'm afraid of, but I don't think this team will. I think we will end up winning two of our last three games and get in the Tourney.

    False, Karma is Iowa State and Kansas meeting in the National Championship and us winning by 50
