I knew Wojo was not the guy after how the team responded after beating Nova when they were #1. They came out a few days later and looked like a grade school team vs. Georgetown and that was all I needed to know about Wojo being a game changing coach. My gut tells me that some were concerned about laying an egg last night and are concerned about the same against DePaul. Honestly, that is what being a mid major for almost a decade does to a fanbase. When you have ten guys that are all hungry and buying into a system good things happen.

While they do have a tough schedule ahead of them there is not one game that I do not think they have a chance to win going into the game. The BE has a very nice core of good to very good teams, but none of them are unbeatable. Again, this fan is not fearing laying an egg, but rather, keeping the train rolling.

Don’t care who the coach is.

Until we win at Nova(since they transformed into basically a blue blood over the last 8 years) I’ll believe it when I see it.

Other than that, I agree. I’ll have at least moderate confidence in the rest of the games.

FYI--I only noted Wojo because I believe he created a mindset of hoping for the best and it never happened. Due to that, expectations are lowered, and it is natural to expect the worse. There is no doubt winning at Nova would be a big time program win and I would not be betting the moneyline for an MU win. That said, I do expect them to be competitive and hopefully have a chance to get the win. Conversely, I am not worried about losing to DePaul next week.

Fair enough, love the enthusiasm and positivity! I'm not convinced we're the offensive stalwarts we've suddenly become yet, take win against DePaul won't do it either. How we do against that aforementioned tough stretch will convince me we're past the slow starts and painful three shooting.

I agree that our offense will likely have down games and that is going to happen. I am confident that we have mastered the two footer and dunk part of the offense and that will make up for poor shooting nights. Our three shooting was a problem, but not rebounding and missing bunnies was equally as much of the problem.

Mike,

You may have posted prematurely, and was worried about the jinx. To counter, I will not update the date in the thread title. Going to SH next week, with kharma and Warrior vibes for the W.

Goose,

Looking at forward to manhattans, red meat, and good times with the fellas on Thursday.

I don’t believe in jinxes.

If they do not have a winning record over those seven games, I will be very disappointed.

If Pomeroy is your thing (which I know it's not for you and others), MU will be 1-7 over the next eight games. I would be very pleased with 4-4.

Me neither. 

Except for starting a SOTG thread before the final buzzer sounds.
That's just asking for us to lose.


Have some patience, FFS.

I'm thinking Morsell is SOTG for the DePaul game. He's overdue!

I thought we might get a throwaway vote or two this week after the two 30 pt beat downs.  But I guess not.

The top 25 is pretty elite this year, it seems.  Only 12 schools were in receiving votes this week.  There were 18 last year this week.

Meanwhile, the PAC12 has three in the top six.  10 of the top 25 are west of the Mississippi.  West coast hoops is back I guess?

Take care of business against other top 25 teams is all we can do, eventually we'll get in. This past week a lot of unranked teams could claim to have beaten a ranked team. Let's see after Hall this weekend! (And not come out flat tomorrow)

We'll just have to wait a week -- after we've beaten DePaul and No. 20 Seton Hall -- to get votes. Perhaps even enough votes to get ranked.

For now we'll have to settle on having beaten the No. 23 team by 106 points (and the No. 25 team, too).

…and for those of us in WI, the RED lava flow just keeps getting hotter. Up to #13? Yes, I’d like a rematch vs Johnny Davis & the nutpuncher.

Hypothetical question:
What would we be ranked if we swept the rest of the year to selection Sunday?

Whatever is higher than 1.

That would get MU to roughly 28-6.   I would expect 7-9 range.

Bumpin' for fun and profit ...

We won twice, including over #20 SH. Four-game winning streak, including 100-point win over #23 (then #16) The Provi. Winning record in one of the best conferences, 12-6 overall.

Obviously, The Hall will drop out. Others to lose during the week include #21 Texas, #22 Tennessee and #24 Bama (twice).

I'm guessing we'll receive votes, but probably not enough to get in the Top 25.

We'll just have to beat Nova and X!

Top 25 teams that lost this week:

Baylor 2x
USC 2x
Iowa state
Mich State
X
LSU
ucla
Ohio State
Tennessee
Bama 2x
Hall 2x
Texas Tech
Tennessee
Texas

Top it off, Oklahoma, IU, and WVU had losses from vote getting. Prov didn't even play this week.

Will be interesting to see how the chips fall. See us as 2nd or 3rd out on votes.
