    Throw us a Bone!

    We all realize that MBB is in a rebuilding process. But one of the frustrating aspects is that we have not even gotten an upset victory here or there to cheer about.

    0-8 on the road in conference. We ended with three second division teams (MU, CU, TT) and couldn't pull out a road victory as a sign the team was improving.

    No upsets of ranked teams at home. Not even a win over a first division team.

    Once some players started looking better (DG and Brackins) at the end of the year, Wes starts to struggle and Rashon's injuries and bad luck still keep us from looking like a complete team.

    Just throw us one bone. Beat A&M in KC and give us one day to smile! Just one.

    I agree. A win Thursday would do wonders for fan morale. Something to feel good about.

    Not sure I could have said it better myself. One more day of happiness in K.C. may just get me thru to football season.

    Re: Throw us a Bone!

    Just remember that every team in the nation ends there season with a loss except 2 (3 this year).

    Edit: After I posted and read this I somehow thought of the Debbie Downer skit on SNL.

    I agree ...but what should worry clone fans is that T a&m must win this game to make the ncaa tourney...

    If our clones can beat the aggies it will knock the aggies out of the ncaa tourney...

    OAN...can the officiating of college basketball get any worse??

    Re: Throw us a Bone!

    Is it bad that I want us to defeat A&M simply for the fact that I want a chance to beat KSU and ruin their day?

    What has been our best day this season? Purdue? Iowa? Texas? KSU? It can be A&M in KC.

    Purdue since it was on a neutral court against a good team.

    Maybe they come out flat. Teams come out flat all the time in must-win games.

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Is it bad? No

    Beating A&M and ruining KSU's day would make me wet my pants w/ excitement. That would give us so much momentum heading into next season. Plus if you get a couple wins in this tournament, who knows what will happen. With that said A&M will win by 15

    Re: Throw us a Bone!

    I don't think we will win this week, but you are all right, just one win would be a huge morale maker for us heading into the off season.

    I thought that too, during our NIT final four run and there was all sorts of debate about which is better- winning the NIT or making the Big Dance and losing the first round. However, and this may be a new thing, not all conferences have conference tournaments, such as the Big East. So it is possible for a team to not have a good enough record to make the Big East tourney but still win their last game.

    Please don't let us finish 1-10 this year. That is just painful to think about.

    Re: Throw us a Bone!

    Beating KSU late would be awesome. I dont hate them because they are good like KU or Texas... I hate them because they THINK they are that good.
