    Is there any hope, Don? This is shaping up to be a terrible season.

    I'm sure I am not the best one to ask :Redface:; No doubt we overachieved last season. So far this season we've underachieved; But look at who we've lost to: Drake, Washington St, Miami & Louisville, all well-regarded teams and three in the top 25. Both Drake and Washington State were winnable games.

    I think the newcomers replace the talent that we lost to graduation, but we are missing their experience. With all the newcomers, talented as they are, I don't think the team has developed the level of mental toughness they had as a team last year, sort of a 'Us Against the World' coming off a the prior 7 win season, but I believe that should come with time. So far, I haven't seen any 'Quit' in this team, showing an ability to rally from deficits; one of the characteristics of last year's team.

    The big Ten will be tough again this year, and we won't be sneaking up on anybody, but I think its too early to start counting them out based on the 2-4 record.

    Last year they lost to Creighton @ PBA; We'll see how well they do in tomorrow's game. :Cheer2::Cheer2::Cheer2:

    Kansas was a good game, but turned into a nail-biter near the end; we failed to put them away in the 3rd Qtr when we had a 14 pt lead, and wound up holding on to win by six.

    Our incoming Freshmen are all very talented; all could be starters (or could play starter minutes) now, but I think we need to play with more TEAM discipline and mental toughness, which takes time to develop.

    IMHO, the future is bright.

    (appreciate your contributions to the WBB forum :))
