    Really good chance of a 5 game losing streak

    I don't really think were going to beat OSU mainly because there a matchup nightmare and I think our guys have reached there mental breaking point. Were awful on the road so I really don't think were going to win at WVU, most teams have had a tough time there this season. Then theres the big 12 tournament. We'll likely get OU in the first round and I think they can probably man handle us again. Blast me now, but i think this team is headed for a 5 game losing streak and straight to the NIT.

    Just win at WVU and one in the big 12 tourney and i think were safely in but our RPI has been falling the past 2 weeks and will be in the 60s probably after this week.

    Hope I'm wrong. Today was frustrating but i think the next 2 weeks will be worse, but hoping for the best.

    we are good enough to win any game, but can easily lose any game also

    Always enjoy when people count chickens before they're hatched.

    I don't think there's ANY chance of a five game losing streak--considering the next game is in Hilton.

    Were beatable in Hilton. Allen Fieldhouse is a tougher place to play and Oklahoma State went into KU and pretty much did as they pleased, I doubt they'll be that intimidated by Hilton

    Re: Really good chance of a 5 game losing streak

    Iowa State had OK State beat in Stillwater until one of our famous meltdowns. No reason to assume they can't win in Hilton.

    I would be VERY surprised if we lost to OK State, WVU, and OU again in the Big 12 tourney. I'm not going to panic unless OSU wins in Hilton. Then I'll be in the "we're F'd camp" with the others. Until then, no reason to start worrying.

    Re: Really good chance of a 5 game losing streak

    Over the last 3 matchups we've pretty been toss ups with OSU. Hopefully HIlton is going crazier than the KU game, its become more important.

    Our longest losing streak this year is two games. Five games seems like a lot.

    I think there is just as good a chance we win the next 3, maybe an even better chance.

    I've noted this for the past month. Just look at the threads the guy has started.

    Re: Really good chance of a 5 game losing streak

    In every game, if we lose the tip, I turn to revkah and say, "Forget it. This game's over. Let's go home." I do it making fun of people like the OP.

    I'm going to enjoy it just a little bit more on Wednesday.
