    What has happened to Texas in MBB?

    They are losing to A&M by 14 with 2 minutes to play. They have dropped from #1 to #21. What has changed so much with TX that has caused them to free fall?


    Hit it hard, every yard

    There's a much longer answer I could go into, but the main problems are poor shot selection and point guard play. And Pittman isn't as good as everyone thinks he is.

    I really don't recall Pittman ever being tabbed as very good. Just big.

    Rick Barnes < Greg McDermott and that is saying something. There is no other coach out there that gets so little out of top rated talent repeatedly, than Rick Barnes.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Texas could very well be our opening opponent in Big 12 tourney. Maybe we will pull the upset. :)
