    This year's record

    Now finally this season is over and we end up 4-12. Ok player defect from previous years is not GMac'e problem. With our current talent level Are we under achieving or over achieving this year?

    I wish we could have at least won two more games: The colorado game on the road and the KSU game at home.

    I figured we would have 5 conference wins, so not to far off...

    Obviously we're OVERacheiving--since we were universally picked for LAST in the conference--and didn't finish there.

    Any more easy questions?

    Re: This year's record

    I said somewhere before this season that my personal goal for MBB would be 15 wins. We got that. Next year, I'll expect an NIT bid. We're not that far away from it...

    Re: This year's record

    I thought we'd win between 2 and 6 conf. games watching us in pre-season.

    Split the difference with 4 so about what I expected.

    Team should have beat 2 of the following 3 (SDSU, Drake, Hawaii). Didn't really "upset" anyone along the way. I suppose winning at UNI or at Houston were closest to "upsets".

    Re: This year's record

    With two potential NBA 1st rounders in brakins and gilstrap next year, I will be disappointed if we only make to the NIT .... This should be our best team since Fizer/Tinsly era.

    Re: This year's record

    I thought we would have 2 more wins out of conference and 1 less win in conference.

    Re: This year's record

    With what we have on the team, we probably achieved around what we could be, but those really bad losses, combined with a few conference games that we really should have had leave the season a little wanting. We should have 18 wins right now.

    Your standards are so high, easy fella.

    BTW we were picked 11th by the coaches so the universally part is incorrect. I don't recall what the AP projected.

    Well we didn't finish 11th, either.

    Re: This year's record

    Underachieved but not by a whole lot. 5-11 was my prediction and with the conference being down a little I didn't think that was too much to ask.
