    11th Place

    We are now in sole possession of 11th in the Big 12...two games ahead of CU.

    Last year we finished tied for 8th.

    Realistically, I don't see us getting out of the 11th spot unless we beat Missouri on the road. The CU game will be a must win otherwise we will be in danger of becoming the #12 seed.

    We can't afford to be worse next year. Being worse means we will be the worst team in the Big 12.

    Re: 11th Place

    I don't think being 11-12 for a year or two in the B12 is that big of deal for the future. Look at what A&M did after going 0-16.

    IMO, I think with what the rest of the conference will lose to graduation and players turning pro, combined with our conference schedule next year being much more conveniant for us...we'll do much better in conference whether we are better or not (I think we will be).

    As bad as it is, I think last years team was better than this years, and that is not going in the right direction.

    I hate that mentality. We always look at next year. Last year we said the same thing. We keep looking ahead to next season, its just sad.

    Eventually "next year" needs to be realized and become "this year". I'm all about patience but at some point, we are going to have to start winning again.

    What we're missing is a big win. Have we had a big, kind of surpising, upset win since McDermott came to Ames?

    Not really. He is yet to beat a ranked team while being our coach.

    Re: 11th Place

    Like it or not, it's the reality for right now...I'd like to win the national title this year! But that's not going to happen, and I could sit here and complain about it after every loss, or I can accept the fact that a team playing three guys who came in this season as walk-ons in the guard court probably isn't going to accomplish great things.

    The problem with that mentality is that those three walk-on players are playing better than our leading scorer and stud 4-star recruit.

    When is the last time we went back-to-back seasons without defeating a ranked opponent? I don't consider Purdue because they weren't ranked when we beat them.

    Not blaming people for being frustrated with losing...so am I. Just looking at things from a realistic standpoint, and hoping people will hang in there for a little bit longer.
