    Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    Only Baylor helped us this week. Okie State could not hold on, and Texas beat up WV. We did not expect TCU to do anything against KU.

    But the big thing happened, ISU won. Not the prettiest win ever, but we will take. And if we keep winning things will take care of themselves in the standings.

    One thing that has happened to this team is that we let these less talented teams linger....We kind of put them away, but leave the door open just enough.

    I kept an eye on the other games on Sat, and I noticed it seems that the better teams pull away from less talented teams at the end of games. Yes, I am being critical, and a win is a win, but we want the best for the team.

    Which game are you more worried about? Home against Texas? Or on the road against TCU?
    Would any of you say these next 2 games are must wins to maintain a favorable seed and region in the March?

    UT is tough and we will have to play well to win. The team should be up for it though.

    I agree. You guys know I'm not much of a kool aid drinker but IMO I think we out together a pretty good performance against UT. I feel really good about this game.

    im giving us a slight pass these last two games as i think we were playing a couple of desperate teams that HAD to win to keep any semblance of tourney hopes alive and lets face it....we are a signature win for those programs right now. Obviously WVU was just a buzzsaw that night and is pretty close to making it, or closer than tech.

    got a buffalo nickel Matt Thomas comes up big...20+

    Re: Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    Any road game against anyone in this conference is going to be tough. Even TCU gives teams trouble. That's college basketball in general. Home court is such a big deal.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'm not sure what people think is going to happen here, you aren't going to blow anyone out in this league ex TCU, these teams aren't going to quit, just not going to happen. Any win is good, amazing ...give some people a brick of gold and they ***** cause its too heavy

    Re: Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    Texas game is huge. We need to be provide a great homecourt advantage. Texas beat a team twice that dominated us (WV) , beat a team we couldn't beat at home (KU) and own second place in the Big12. I don't care what the darn rankings say, Texas should be favored. We all need to be hungry for this upset! Go Clones!

    Guess it depends on your definition of blow out. I think UT beat down WVU today. There have been plenty of lopsided games like that in the league this year.

    Unless ISU can win in Manhattan, going to need some more help to get off the 4/5 line in the conference tourney. Looking like they'll probably play K-State. If they can move up to the 3 seed, then WV.

    Re: Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    Not sure why the confidence against UT is so high. They just handled the WVU team that crushed ISU, and they did win pretty convincingly against us in Austin.

    Yeah, it's at Hilton, but KU has proved that can be done by good teams. I also think ISU has not been playing with the authority and confidence they had earlier in the season.

    I hope to hell I'm just needlessly self preparing for the nut crunching and you all are right.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    I have a work meeting that night so can't come to the game. We've lost every game against ranked teams I haven't been to in the last 3 years. But we have won every game I've been at. So sorry and you can blame a loss on me.

    Re: Minimal Help from Bog Foes...

    We must win at home against Texas if we want to have a shot at finishing better then 5th. Our last 3 of the season is probably the biggest 3 game stretch of the season. It would be awful momentum wise to fall to go 0-3 or even 1-2 in that stretch. What makes it even worse is that the last 2 games we play this season are against teams that will probably be desperate for wins. We need to play a lot better to get out of the rest of this season looking good.

    I fully expect us to win out at home.

    It's been proven that KU can win at Hilton. Every other good team has failed. That's why we're confident.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Nobody in our conference right now except KU has won at Hilton since Fred's 2nd year started. Agree 100%.
