[quote=“LarryJoe, post:4, topic:1567”]Very clever responses. May I direct you to the multiple posts where there is considerable discussion about how the Mississippi game may have adversely affected the team RPI, and how we need to do well in the out of conference in the event we are a “bubble team”.
If you two know this already, help your buddies on this board so that they can reduce their expectations a little bit, and not find themselves quite so deflated in a month or so.[/quote]
What is it you think you have figured out that nobody else does? Of course it’s a long shot that this season goes much of anywhere, especially considering how strong the big10 is this year… does that mean we should all be like you and just sit around pouting about all our losses before they even happen? No thanks.
I happen to think we look pretty solid early this season, a lot better than I expected even. We’re still long shots, but I give us a puncher’s chance against nearly anybody when you got a guy like Talor Battle on your squad - we lost a lot of close games last year, no reason we shouldn’t compete almost every night this season also. How about waiting until some bad stuff actually happens this year before you come raining on everyone’s parade - we’re not collectively stupid here (although individually i wonder at times about some), we certainly understand the situation better than you by the sounds of it. We just choose not to harp on it while we’re still very much alive this season. Maybe try it yourself once in awhile you sad sap.
