The last 2 or 3 games I keep thinking that we are due for a loss. Not because our guys are going to go into a funk, but because that's just what happens. You can't win them all.

But I feel good about this one. That probably means we'll lose.

Go Bears.

I have only come here seeking knowledge

If we can beat them and K-State, we're bound to be ranked, right?

We will be inside the top 22, possibly top 20, especially if KState beats KU tonight. Perception will become reality and naysayers and I'll-informed will have their eyes opened.

KenPom gets their game predictions involving us wrong a lot!

I think we can beat UT if we just come together and play as a team, because really Tech was favored over us by a decent amount but we still beat them. In my opinion I think Baylor over Texas 74-69

Let him rain coals and nothing but net three pointers on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a lack of rebounding and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

I hope we keep playing like we have been, winning, and stay unranked until the day after Selection Sunday.

Is this game watchable anywhere besides LHN?

Anyone watching can you comment on how we look? Or is it too soon to tell?

Mason was double teamed six feet beyond the 3 point line. They keep that up someone else needs to make them pay. UT rebounding well and playing good defense so far.

Are the fouls Texas getting really fouls? Is the game being called fairly? This is not apparent from listening to JMo

Hard to get a flow if they keep calling fouls. And UT is a great free throw team. Not good for us.
jdrs
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Seems like every trip down they call a foul on us.
