    I said a lot, but didn't really make a prediction. So I'm going with yes, I was correct.

    Thanks for bumping, I do like going back and seeing people's predictions before the season.

    What I'm excited about is that we still have room for improvement. Hopefully, the urgency of the upcoming tournaments will help the team focus on getting to the next level.

    Two thoughts.


    Which of the 145 preseason predictions threads is this?


    I noticed in this thread Velo said we might take a step back because Royce allowed us to play "unconventionally".

    As this season unfolded, I think we saw that unconventional is our hallmark, no matter who is on the floor.
    The rest of the world is playing high ball screen, bump and grind, boring shot clock basketball and we are for the most part, letting it fly.

    Now as the future unfolds and our roster gets more stacked with talent (which I see no reason it won't), we may become more conventional but for right now, we're playing NBA basketball in a Bo Ryan world.

    I, along with the vast majority, predicted an NCAA Bid. It's like I know the future!

    I predicted the Clones would go 10-8. I thought they would beat the bad teams but wilt against the tough competition.

    The fact is that they never wilted against the good competition, except in Norman, which was their only blowout loss. All the other games were close and we could have easily won another four.

    At the same time, I certainly did not expect to get beaten by Texas Tech.

    Even though this year's team has a worse conference record than last year's, it still seems like a better team. Last year's team had at least two wins at home on last second shots. This year, our home wins against Texas, TCU, Tech, Oklahoma, KState and Okie State were all pretty comfortable, really. Only the Kansas and WVU games were close.

    I'm shocked at how good some of those predictions were... maybe I'll pay more attention to them in the future!!
