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
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.

Yeah he seems to think it's a crime for calling out the teams play so far. It's been poor to excuse that is being a homer. I'll be the first to get excited if when the play gets better in the second half .

Ok, Drew and staff chewed some butts. Much more inspired play for the first 3 minutes.

You call out a team for poor effort and poor execution..we were 1-10 from long distance..were the #1 team in nation from long distance..we were missing open shots..its a 40 min game you braniacs.

I've called out the ball movement and sloppy turnovers as well as the wide open 3s. I stated it's not the misses that bug me as much as it is the wide open ones.

We need to watch that guard switch on Samuel. TCU saw it but a great defensive play by Vital

Uggh. SOMETIMES SHOTS DONT FALL...you cant criticize when that happens...you just keep grinding and try to create offense other ways until they do..and keep your intesity on D

You kmow..kinda like the 2nd half so far..

Could've been 15 - he was in the lane when I started counting and I got to 9.

Thus far, the D has been good the entire game. Finally the offense appears to have shown up in the second half.

Good lord dude I said CONCERNED. I didn't criticize anyone. Unless you call me pointing out Mitchell having a brick party the last 3 games. We don't have to constantly pump sunshine like you clearly think we need too. I've been very happy with the 2nd half play aside from these last 2 possessions

3 pt shooting is typically worse on road. Unfamiliar gym/basket orientation. Just keep taking it to the rack and should be ok.
