I do agree it’s a big game for us and should be a win. We’re a much better team than them right now. But, say we lose it would be considered more of a missed opportunity than a bad loss. At worst Texas will end up with a top 100 RPI and that’s if everything goes wrong for them. You have to remember they are in the Big 12, their SOS will be extremely good once it’s all said and done, and they will pull off some upsets once conference play starts. It’s very early and they are are dependent on freshman and sophomores. They will get better as they go, they have the talent, just need to get some experience.
Also, Houston looked good for one half against LSU and then fell off second half, I agree with you that they are a good non-conference opponent this is a team we have to make sure we take seriously and take care of business against.
I’ll stop worrying when we win a couple road games, bc really I don’t want to squeak into the dance by winning out at home and only beating Missouri on the road. I want a solid team, and a solid seed, and solid chances to win multiple post season games in a row. We will have our chances in sec play to show what we can do away from home. But if we miss our non con opportunities then we will have a steeper hill to climb to earn a decent seed.
