TCU is 10-1 and #46 on the NET rankings so this will be a Quad one win if the Bears take care of business.


Quote:

"Quad 1" wins are the headliners on any resume. The quadrant includes home games against teams in the top 30 of NET, neutral-site games against the top 50 and road games against the top 75.

Last year the Bears had 13 quad one wins. TCU would be their 4th quad 1 win for this season and make them 4-0 vs. quad 1. Quad 1 wins this year are Nova, Mich State, Iowa State.

The difference between a home quad 1 win (top 30) and a road quad 1 win (top 75) reflects just how hard the road is in college basketball.

TCU is #57 on kenpom and #49 on Massey College Basketball Ranking Composite

That's a little frustrating for sure, but ABC/ESPN has 2 NFL games today, so that takes away a few of the time slots on the bigger networks, and there are a couple of more marquee games today in the Big 12 - Kansas at Tech and Iowa St. at Oklahoma.

I'm so glad for the ESPN+/Hulu/Disney+ bundle

OSU up 8 on tu late in the 1st half. This surprises, but doesn't disappoint, me a bit, even if the pokes are at home and gave the clownbirds a scare for a little while

Eta: Texas closes to 2 at half

A frog win would make a successful season for them. Would really like to see the Bears jump on them early take away any confidence they may have at winning this game.

Refs allowing fairly physical play so far.

Bears shooting 43% from the field and 2 of 2 from 3

TCU is 33% from the field and 1 of 3 from 3


Mayer and Akinjo lead the Bears with 3 each.

Do we get stuck with him because we're #1, or are these assignments made prior to the season? I'd take anyone other than him.

On average, we prolly lose at least 6 points when he's on the floor unless the opponent is KU in which case it's 10 or 12.

Flagler and Cryer are not PG's. We really struggle with turnovers and moving the ball when Akinjo sits.

OMG! Higgins DIDN'T call a block on Flo???????? (It wasn't a block, it was correctly called a charge....just surprised Higgins called it)

Not sure what's worse… Lance Blanks on the broadcast are our ball movement. I expect one of those to improve soon.

I didn't catch the first few seconds. Didn't know who the analyst was until you posted. Ugh. Bad.

Another crappy thing about getting stuck on ESPN+ - these are the type broadcasters you get stuck with.

Yeah, we will need Akinjo to stay another year. Love is more of a two guard as is KG from what I know.

If Akinjo leaves we may have to rely on the portal.

5 of TCU points on bank shots that were NOT supposed to bank

I have to slap my head at least 3 times a game when any of our players try a bounce pass to Flo in the lane.

I hate low passes to big men. Too hard for them to get.
