    Unbridled optimism

    The last several games have been about as difficult (at times) for me to watch as the Feb. games during Morgan's final season. Yet before each game I find myself thinking, "This is the ONE. The game where it all comes together. Shots are falling from everywhere. Rebounds, lucky bounces all go our way."

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    I think rebounding is going to be the key, not letting KU get those second chance points!

    If they slow the pace down and make good decisions they should do alright. Work the offense and take quality shots. On defense, hustle and get the rebound.

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    Yes, most of us drink from the same kool-aid bucket as you. This team teases us a lot but seems to come up short in the end a lot. We really need a break through, whether that's winning tonight or winning a game or two in KC. We need something positive to happen for this team.

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    I would love to see this team start finishing games...and peaking at the right time. But I don't think we have a go to guy in crunch time. Just something every good team has.

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    If we are going to catch KU this year, tonight is the time to do it. They will prepare very well for the B12 tournament. I dont think the urgency will be there tonight as much as with other opponents, even with their current skid.

    Unfortunately, we do not have 1 favorable matchup... I am expecting a pretty tough loss

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    This is where beating Texas really would have given us the confidence to beat Kansas tonight.

    Re: Unbridled optimism

    Another thing we may have going for us is that KU may be looking ahead to K-State on Saturday. They got beat bad in Manhattan and I am sure they can't wait to get their revenge.

    Well, Missouri wasn't a favorable matchup twenty-five years ago, either.

    They have struggled badly on the road in conference play. There is no way they are looking ahead. KU is trying to get a #1 or #2 seed, so every last game is extremely important.
