  • I was talking about the tough inside bangers and Corey Beck-like rugged guards that the top teams have that helps them advance past the first couple of rounds in the tourney. We need to toughen up some inside. I'm hoping Gafford, Hall, and Osabuohien can help in this regard.

    But we made it to the second round of the NCAA and could've gone so.m much farther if not for the refs without, apparently, those players you described?

    UNC wasn't particularly tough inside last year. I agree about the refs, though. We have quite a history with SEC officials.

  • Hoping for more, but NIT or bubble is the best I can see with this team. We don't have enough "men" yet.

    Basketball, especially at the college level has turned into a guards game. We should have 2 of the best guards in the conference in Barford and Macon. The new guys bring much-needed length and athleticism that should make for improved defense and rebounding. We may struggle a little early on with guys finding roles, but I bet we'll be just fine. Honestly, get to 20 wins with our schedule and we should be in the tourney.

    Only a game off where I had us to this point, though I did get several of the losses wrong. Also, conference record to this point is flip-flopped. I still think we can pull out 20 wins going into the SEC Tournament. Gonna need to win at Georgia, Ole Miss and Missouri, though, most likely.

    we are close to where the majority had us... the one real stinger is MSU.... hope it doesn't come back to bite us...

    Houston loss hurts, too, as well as LSU at home.

  • I didn't do mine until we were going into SEC play.  Would have accounted for one screw up in non conf so 2 losses there.  Would not have guessed at the margin of loss in Houston.

    I'm two games down right now.  Had us winning one out of 2 of MSU and AU and beating LSU. 

    Thought the first 5 of the SEC schedule was the lighter part except for the SC, Vandy and @ OM stretch.  Still believe we'll at least get to 9-9.  The SEC is deeper with better teams this season but it isn't the ACC.

  • Was looking through this yesterday. Looks like we will still finish the regular season with around 20 wins, it'll just be 11-2 & 9-9 vs the 9-4 & 11-7 I predicted. Our SOS is still really good this year, though it is doing worse than I projected, as even Oklahoma's rise can't offset the underachieving by Uconn, Minnesota, and Okie State.

  • What a fun flashback... I wish more of these were brought up during a Hog season so we can see all the ways that we were all WRONG & how much the ___________ team has managed to underachieve.

    Saw a lot of "Sweet 16 / Elite 8" predictions on here.  Silly.
