    It Could Be Worse...

    It could be worse, we could be Texas AM and be a bubble team who blew at 21 point lead to lowly Texas Tech...

    Actually I guess they are still better of than us with the prospect of post-season play...but either way sucks to be them!

    Colorado is the only other BCS school that I wouldn't trade places with right now given that basketball and football are admittedly the only two sports I really care about that much.

    What about Washington State?


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: It Could Be Worse...

    Is this the lowly Texas Tech that just beat Kansas, or are they lowly because they lost to us?

    I know you somewhat clarified it with your second statement, but come on. We had 4 big 12 wins this year and finished 10th. WE ARE WORSE!
