My only reason for going one at time is because a lot has changed in two weeks. I would not be surprised if they are in better position a week from now. I said I would be disappointed at 2-4.

Reasonable, Goose. Thanks.

For me, the level of "disappointment" in losses will directly correlate with how a loss occurred. If the team plays extremely hard, executes, plays good D, etc, but the ball's just not going through the hoop ... and/or if the other team is just making shots out their rumps, I will be much less disappointed than if we give one away via turnovers, missed bunnies, silly decisions, etc.

So I guess in that respect I'll be taking 'em one at a time, too.

Likely underdogs in every game, 161 votes and ZERO 0-6 votes.

Who woulda thought MUScoop is such an optimistic place.

Also, over 80% voted 2 or more wins.

I went with 2-4, and Id be pretty happy with that. If MU wins on Wednesday I’d say 3-3 is a good possibility but still wouldn’t be disappointed with 2-4.

I think 4 or more wins is a pipe dream, but pressure can either bust pipes or build diamonds.
That would probably mean a top 3/4 conference finish and pretty solid tourney seed.

Fwiw I do not think this Wednesdays game is impossible, I actually don’t have a terrible feeling about it. If I had to rank from most to least difficult based on gut feeling I’d go with
@ UConn
@ Nova
@ Providence
V Nova
V Xavier
@ SH

I really like the idea of sweeping SH this season. They have a home and home on Saturday and Monday versus StJ, who runs like hell, and then get MU Wednesday at 4PM.

Xavier on a Sunday afternoon should hopefully draw a really nice crowd (packers play Sat night so hopefully they win and fans come fired up on sunday).

Wednesday night 9PM v Nova and they get UConn on Saturday at 11AM, maybe a bit of a trap game for most teams but it’s Jay Wright.

Don’t like playing at the Dunkin Donuts Center at 330 on a Saturday and Cooley will have his dudes fired up, but they have cancellations and make up games so that might help MU.

No logic behind calling @UConn tougher than @Nova, but that game is sandwiched between road games at Villanova and at Xavier for them so they will likely want a win badly.

Interesting post Dr. V. You surprised me by listing SH at the bottom of your list but I get your logic. Teams that have to sandwich in make up games may be at a disadvantage and yeah, St. Johns will definitely make them run.

Likely underdogs in every game

How many times have we been underdogs to this point? What is our record in those games?

I am NOT being snarky. I don't track this kind of stuff and I'm legit curious after you and others have pointed this out in regards to the stretch that began Saturday.

Is it possible our team is better than kenpom and torvik and NET and whateverwhatever.com say we are?

I went 3-3. I agree with Dr. V's assessment of the SHU game (that's a lot of up-tempo games in a 5-day stretch), think we catch Xavier at home (we almost caught them in Cincy before they took over late), and think we're a matchup problem for Providence.

I went 3-3 but don't hate it if we are at 2-4.

Agree with brew that we seem to be a bad matchup for Providence and we hung with X on the road--that's 2 of the wins.

Honestly don't know where the third comes from--heart says we steal one from Nova tomorrow, but my mind says it's probably SHU.

Anything 2-4 or better we're in great shape.  Winning the last three was enormous, and frankly necessary. 
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

It’s wild. Before this 7 game stretch started I hoped for 2-5.

Now with the SHU win I can see 2-4 happening.

If you would have told me at the start of the 7 game gauntlet that 3-4 was possible I woulda shat happy bricks

Beat Nova on Wednesday. Have an oddly good feeling about it like I did the Illini game.

My feeling became reality! I still know nothing though

Best part about the above is that I have my 2 “easiest” rated games coming up next.
As I said I hope the home crowd caries Marquette on Sunday, I think the team needs every bit of it as X isn’t a great matchup for us and is tough as nails.

Then I like what goes into that SH game on the road and I like the idea of sweeping them this season.

Odds are both won’t happen but lets get Sunday and see what happens in Joisey

Feeling good about the 5-1 I picked. We have as good of a team and as a good of coach (maybe other than Wright) as any in this conference.

Well, they've already met my mark. Now if they don't double it I'm going to be depressed.

The Hall will be a tough out at the Rock. I would LOVE a win @PC . Beat VU again at home and go to Hartford on a huge roll. This year has already exceeded my expectations, but God, I love gravy.

Here for the gravy as well. Think we could have a big week here. Aiken may be out and I just think we match well against Providence

Still haven’t reached my optimistic pick of 3-3. Now I’m hoping that I underestimated these guys.

IF you are right and Marquette wins both road games this week we are no longer talking about making the dance.

We are no longer talking about BECOY because coach smart would have almost damn near clinched it.

We are then talking about BE titles and protected top 5 seeds. We are talking about a top 15 team in all the land.

Might need our boys to read the SHU board.

Few of their posters think we basically suck and are a total fluke. Justin and Daryl being our only good players
