    Love the attitude of the guys after Hoiberg's remarks...they feel it. You can see it now that they were so close that they are NOT going to let this happen again. They believe in each other, and the trust is there - something that has been missing (or at least appeared to be).

    I feel MUCH better about the team now - Texas better be ready for an athh-wuppin' on Saturday because it's going down at Hilton!

    KL has really started playing well. That makes a big difference.

    The tale of the season will be told Saturday. We play like we did tonight and we blow Texas out. The season turns positive and we finish top 3 in the conference. We revert to the way we played most of the year, we lose to Texas, and the season deteriorates. Can't wait for Saturday.

    CW why isn't that classless comment deleted from the comments on the article? If that kind of language is blocked from the message boards it certainly shouldn't stand on the comments to articles.

    Yes it was a heartbreaker but the team should have gained a lot of confidence from last night. Hoping we get a lot more out of Gibson and Booker now that we're thru with Withey for awhile. Very proud of Fred and the Clones and now see us having a chance to finish high in the conference.

    I spoke to Niang briefly after the game and he said "we will get them in Hilton and wait couple years, we will get them here too".

    Love the kid. Probably one of the nicest kid I have met in my life.

    Yes. This team has it. We will finish high in the Big 12, and we will dance. I'm comfortable saying that.

    And Fred has only coached 2.5 years. Ever. The man is crazy talented, and easily developing into one of the best coaches and recruiters out there.

    I am being honest when I say that there is not another coach out there that I would trade him for. He is a special guy doing special things. Really proud today.

    I'm not normally one for moral victories but last night gave me confidence as well. And the guys seem to be using it as motivation rather than hanging their heads.

    Is this becoming typical of Fred Hoiberg teams? Peaking during conference play? I hope so.
