I've always hated this thread. Whenever it gets resurrected we seem to lose.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

TAMU

As I have stated to you many times, I respect your excitement over the program and knowledge you bring to the site. This is one post that I think you are better than. I want a program that has a "what are going to be ranked" thread. Furthermore, I want it to be a debate that includes high ranking in the polls.

Like it or not, there remains a great deal of work ahead for this program. From my perspective, the talent level just is not there, especially at the guard position. As I stated in another post, I think there are a lot of nice complimentary players that would be well on a very good team. If Wojo can coach, he can make something out of this group. If not, there will be more disappointing moments this season.

I am not jumping ship on the season and my expectations remain at same level as they were a year ago when "next season" was the rally cry on here. I expected, and expect, similar results that we have seen the last couple of years.

I will add, there is nothing that would make happier (in my sports fandom life) than the expectations of others to be met. One season in my life I rooted against MU and that was the Dukiet's swan song. By no stretch, am I hoping for a bust of a year. Said it last year and will say it again, I hope that all that high hopes for this season end up being spot on.

Still receiving 7 votes. We can jump right back in with a win Wednesday.

Guys, we are going to get smoked on Wednesday.  Don't even bother getting yourself excited about a W. 

I am going to watch and root like hell for a W, and obviously hope it happens.  But we're talking 10% or less chance.  This team has not looked good at all and we're playing likely the best all around team in the country.  Its not going to go well.

Do you think we play the same way we did against IU?

Probably. If both teams play an average game we will lose by double digits. But that's why we play the games. If we play one of our best games, they play one of their worst, or some combo of the two we can win.

MU received 8 and 7 points respectively in this weeks  AP and Coaches poll. So a few voters gave MU the benefit of the doubt on the road loss in a tough venue.

I am hoping that the  NY area MU fan base shows up at Barclay , could give the team a boost this week.

It was written...

“With numerous challenging games (more than half of MU’s regular season games will be against teams in or receiving votes in the preseason AP top 25), we see the season playing out in one of two ways.

The Warriors could pick up a few losses to very good teams early on, delaying their recognition by the masses and having some fans expressing needless concern. In this scenario, we still believe by the end of the regular season MU will be set for a strong postseason run and will be seen as a dangerous and “underrated” team heading into the tournament.”

I am not really concerned about the L persay, I am worried that this team has looked terribly disjointed and frankly super unimpressive.

Sorry to be negative - I rarely am when it comes to MU hoops - but I just expected more this season.  I am wholly unimpressed 4 games in.  I still think this is a tournament team, but I don't see a top 15 type team I thought we'd be getting.  Seems to me we're going to rely on Markus shooting the lights out to win big games.  That is not a good thing to have to rely on to win.

Guys, we are going to get smoked on Wednesday.  Don't even bother getting yourself excited about a W. 

I am sure the University of Maryland Baltimore County faithful (all six of them) said exactly the same thing last March. I believe they were up against the Number 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament.

I'm sure many of the faithful of Loyola University of Chicago also said exactly the same thing. They were up against the field in the NCAA. Had they not won the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, Sister Jean would have been a woman who wasn't known much past Sheridan on the south, Broadway on the west, the city limits on the north and Lake Michigan on the east. We all know how that turned out.

I'm sure many of the faithful said the same thing a couple of years back when the Villanova Wildcats confidently rode into Wisconsin's largest city thinking they had a pesky but eminently beatable basketball foe that requirement vanquishment. Nobody on this board has any doubt about how THAT one turned out.

Finally, there was the little Jesuit school that barely made the NCAA tournament years ago. The school had lost several of its end-of-the-season games and, up to that time, had one of the worst records ever for an at-large bid into the NCAA. It happened only because the school was leading Michigan at halftime (a game it would go on to lose) and its colorful head coach was retiring. NO ONE and I mean NO One on that Sunday afternoon would have dreamed that just a few weeks later, that school would be national champions.

So now we're on par with UMBC and/or Loyola? That's a bit depressing 2 weeks into the best season this program was supposed to have had in over half a decade.

I would say, I doubt that we will be ranked again this season. If NC schedule turns out poorly, it would need a nice winning streak to right the ship.
