    No more room for error in non-conference

    If we win games against Bradley, Iowa and Houston ,none of which are gimmes given what we have seen in recent days, then we should finish 11-4 in the non-conference. That would seem to suggest that a 9-7 record in the Big 12 and one win in the Big 12 tourney would be the necessary requirements to get to the NCAA dance. Right now I just want a convincing win against Iowa but the pre-season goals are still alive.

    Re: No more room for error in non-conference

    you make a valid point

    I just find it funny that three times in the past week and a half we have had a thread saying..."ok well if we just wins these games, and get this record FROM HERE ON OUT we will be fine".....only to then go and lose the next game.

    Anyway, here's hoping to you being right man

    Except for the fact that this team will not finish anywhere close to 9-7 in the Big Twelve. If you are clinging to the hope that this team will make the NCAA tournament, you must be smoking some good stuff.
