    Finish with a winning record?

    10 games left plus a game (or two if we are lucky) in the Big 12 tournament, we need to win at least 3 more games for Greg McDermott to not have another losing season and 4 would guarantee a winning record.

    Re: Finish with a winning record?

    It will be close. Again, that is why the UNI and NW games were so critical.

    Another question will be will McD finish with a winning record?

    2 of these 10 games have teams with a lower RPI.com than us. It looks like NE, CU #142, and ISU #114 are the bottom 3 in Big 12 rpi. Oklahoma is #84 and the rest are #64 or better. That means holding serve in two games and probbaly requiring a couple of upsets. Any of our tournament games will be against better opponents. Tough road to hoe.

    Re: Finish with a winning record?

    My most optimistic finish:

    at Baylor - L
    K-State - W
    at Missouri - L
    at KU - L
    OSU - W
    A&M - W
    Nebby - W
    at CU - W
    Missouri - W
    at K-State - L

    My most pessimitic finish:

    at Baylor - L
    K-State - L
    at Missouri - L
    at KU - L
    OSU - L
    A&M - L
    Nebby - W
    at CU - L
    Missouri - L
    at K-State - L

    My guess is we finish 6-10 in the leage and finish the season 1 game over .500.

    The three game home stretch against non-ranked teams is an absolute must.

    It would be awesome to run off 5 in a row going to Manhattan.

    Not a chance in us winning at Mizzou IMO. The only 2 road games I think we have a chance at winning are at CU and at Baylor

    Agreed. But we all know how well we play in Boulder.

    Even as poorly as this team has played at times, they have a huge opportunity in Waco tomorrow night and Saturday at home against K-State. Win both of those and we are back to .500 with a 4 of 5 game home stretch at the end of the season.

    Not trying to nit-pick; you are a very intelligent poster so I just thought you would want to know.
