I just went on my rant in another thread. But, looking at the situation it’s not all doom and gloom and I still think we’re on the right track. When we did predictions earlier in the season I thought we’d go 11-2 in non-conference, and still think we will.
First reason, I watched Texas play the past couple of days and they essentially got blew out against Northwestern and Colorado on a neutral court. They are VERY young and make a lot of mistakes. I think we’re a better team than them at this point and I originally picked us to win the Minnesota game, but I think the Texas game will be the game we get. And looking at the rest of our non-conference schedule, we’ve essentially got the potential upset teams in UT-Arlington and Fort Wayne out of the way. The next real threat I think will be Houston at home, but I think we will take care of business against them. I do think we’ll lose to OK State, got a chance to see them, much better than I expected and it will be tough at their place. If we can do that 11-2 and then win 10-12 games in conference we’ll be fine, no need to jump ship just yet. It could be worse, could be Indiana losing to Fort Wayne:).
