    We are due

    I think we are due for some positive things to happen to our athletics programs. We had a successful women's b-ball year, but we need some more dominoes to start falling our way.

    This is just getting re-d*mn-diculous lately with all the bad news.

    Barnes? Brackins? Football wins? Come on! Something positive for once! Its not like we are asking for too much, are we?

    Unfortunately, nothing in life comes because you are due for it.

    There is no such thing as being "due". Stats 101

    Here you go*:







    * Thread did not seem to be working so I inserted a random picture of Mark Mangino for visual interest.


    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.

    I thought Cy winning on JANUARY FIRST was a good start to 2009 for us. Not the case yet....

    No such thing as a cosmic wheel of fate. If we are going to get out of this rut, we are all going to have to push.

    Re: We are due

    The only thing we are likely "Due" is another cosmic kick in the nuts, otherwise any success will have to be earned by the players and coaches collective hard work.

    If you are hoping for a bowl trip this year you will not be satisfied. I would consider the KState trip our bowl trip this season.
