Anyone who still thinks this team is going 18-0 in conference needs to put down the pipe. I'll be happy with 13-5. Just know killer instinct in this team. They just go through the motions

Well that last basket kinda summed up the whole first half.

It's not even that we're missing that bugs me. It's that we're missing WIDE open uncontested 3s at an alarming clip.

Our poor play against ISU has nothing on that half... yuck! Fouls, rebounding, turnovers, standing around, missed shots...

It may change by early Feb, but Texas has looked better than us in every conference game they've played except we both looked margin against ISU.

Nothing from Teague/Mitchell/Flagler/Vital. Hard pressed to win when everyone but Butler decides to take the day off

Terrible way to end the half.

They need to come back firing in all cylinders.

Calm down...no one thinks were going 18-0..this isnt the West Coast Athletic conference or whatever thst thing Gonzaga plays in.

And quit using comparatives scores. What TCU did against Kansas has no bearing on today.

Right now Gonzaga would run BU off the court. Maybe we need an L to wake this team up

I modified to say we both looked marginal against ISU, but it's still very true. This team looks lost on offense for long spurts and if it were just one game, then no big deal. But, it isn't. D is fine.

Hope we get Mayer even more involved in the second half. He is a matchup nightmare

Actually several on this board thought we could go 18-0. I am calm. Not worked up at all. It does have a bearing. It shows that TCU isn't good. I' guarantee you they finish 8-10 at best in conference.

I'm absolutely shocked Baylor made just one 3-point basket in the 1st Half, and scored just 27 points. Baylor played down to TCU's level in the first 20 minutes. A change of baskets hopefully will help Baylor's fortunes in the 2nd Half. Very disappointing to see TCU with a 9-rebound advantage over Baylor. A very lucky 60-foot buzzer beater 3-point shot just before halftime. Baylor does have the edge in FG %. No way Baylor scores less than 30 points in the 2nd Half. Baylor is overdue for at least 1 scoring run. Too soon for Baylor basketball fans to panic. Jared Butler needs 3 or 4 of his teammates to step up and help with scoring in the 2nd Half. Let's Go, Baylor Bears!

No...this veteran team doesnt need a L to wake them up...you guys are really cracking me up with the sky is falling posts..expecting us to blow out everyone in the first half .

Time to wake up in the second half.

11-5 difference in personal fouls. 1 of 10 from 3. Outrebounded 21-12. And we are down 1 after a 3/4 court shot. I like our chances to win this one. It was certainly a dud of a first half.

Who said the sky is falling? No one! This veteran team thinks they can just show up and win. Same thing against ISU. An L wouldn't be the worst thing for their egos

Yes, it's obviously early, but it's huge already that UT has road wins at both Lawrence and at Morgantown. And it's true so far in conference they've looked better than us.

Don't waste your time with that guy. The only time he shows up in game threads is AFTER something's happened so he can scold everyone.

Youre making my case..you realize 7-11 or 8-10 is prob a 9 seed in the NCAA because were the #1 conference?

Better then the B10? That's debatable. 8 or 9 seed in years past. Different scenario this year with limited OC games.

I don't think anyone said that we expected them to blow TCU out in the first half. Lolol It would be nice though. I just want them to start shooting better.
