At. Bonaventure's entire starting line up is listed as seniors.  Not sure what that means in this day and age.

Lofton, Welch, and Osunniyi have all been there for 4 years. Holmes has been there 3 and Adaway 2.

Congrats?
It’s a sad bump. Still have them predicted to go 16-4 in the BEAST and an Elite Eight.

If you can’t get on board with that - you’re the problem.

If by "get on board with that," you mean root for that ... I absolutely root for that, and even more.

But given that you're the only Scooper that I know of who is predicting an Elite Eight for this team, I guess that means you're the single Marquette fan who isn't "the problem."

Congrats on being the bestest, wonderfulest Marquette fan ever! Which is ironic considering that you were actively rooting for our alma mater to lose last season.

Look, man ... I just made a silly little one-word joke. Lighten up, Francis.

The good 2-1 is unnatural carnal knowledgeing great for what we hoped for.

Move on. Take out the frustration on the rest of the schedule
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Yes. This. 5-1 at this point in the season, with 3 nice wins, is pretty doggone good.

Bump this up to remind us what expectations were for this team in October.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Bump this up to remind us what expectations were for this team in October.

We're 7-2, I had us 7-2, but with a couple results swapped (Illinois/Wisconsin, Charleston Game 1/3).

I saw us as a bubble team and still think that's the case. I was worried after our first two buy games, saw my expectations improve after the 5-0 start, and am now right back to bubble team.

Our resume is decent but our mediocre buy game performances and outsized losing margins will have our NET more likely in the 70s-80s than the 40s-50s we need to feel comfortable. If we beat K-State, 11-9 probably gets it done, but at this point I'd guess we're closer to NIT than NCAA.

I think you're right, my expectations were bubble-NCAA ceiling / NIT floor

Call me crazy but I still think we're 2-1 to end the non con.

Home crowd gonna bring UCLA game into the W column

Bubble+ still the hope
