    Moving on to BrickBall tomorrow... What do you need to see to fan that flame of hope?

    Given the opponent and location this will be a difficult game to win. The spread is 8.5 at the moment. What will we have to do tomorrow night to start getting the horrible taste out of your month from this past Saturday?

    If we can keep it within three possessions (ie the point spread) there will be some hope. If we can clean up turnovers and improve shooting but lose by more than spread there will still be some hope IMO. There has to be some improvements along with not getting blown out for me to keep thinking this team can make some noise. Tea and Table Spoon were both left in the dishwasher rack Saturday. We need at least one of them to show up tomorrow night.

    8.5 really isn't that bad. Gives me hope.

    I'm not really all that upset from our loss vs OM. We are clearly the more talented team we just need to learn how to finish. It's part of the process. We aren't ever going to never lose road games in the SEC guys. Chill

    Great so unless our still very young basketball team matches something that's only happened once in our basketball history everyone is gonna treat them like they are Rick Ray's losers. We have the shittiest basketball fanbase in the SEC. Nobody attends the games yet they expect us to be Kentucky Lite.

    Yeah, holding a double digit lead vs one of the worst teams in the league is unreasonable. Next thing you know, we will want some sort of postseason play... You know, Kentucky like goals

    Still bitching about it 4 days later is unreasonable. If it becomes habit this year than by all means keep piling on but the point was made Saturday night after the game already. Howland and the team got the message.

    No we just expect to not lose 8 of 9 to our arch rival who btw, doesnt even give a shit and they still have won 8 of 9. Dont blow 2 double digit leads to them and lose.


    Oh and we expect to not be garbage for what, 7 8 years now?

    And we played the weakest schedule in the history of the school, thought we were decent, then choked worse than UGA did last night. And havent won a road game.

    Just telling the truth

    We make two more buckets and none of y'all are bitching. Instead you're singing their praises and we are ranked. It can't be that way. Total high-fives or total **** you's just by a matter of a couple points. Again we are a very young team still. No seniors. Gotta take some lumps still unfortunately.

    That was a veteran loaded team with mostly Jr's and Sr's- we have a team with no Sr's and only 3 Jr's. Maturity is huge in college basketball and especially in road games

    I want to see a leader start to emerge on our team but I think it may not happen until next year.

    I was not saying we should be undefeated on the road this year. That would be an unrealistic expectation for sure. Dawg61 said, ?We aren't ever going to never lose road games in the SEC guys.? I just pointed out that we have in fact not lost a road game in the sec

    A&M just lost to Kentucky by one at Rupp. Led by 6 with 3-4 minutes left Missed 5 of their last 6 free throws, turned the ball over several times and missed three wide open 3's to go ahead with less than one minute...

    Sound familiar?

    ETA two weeks ago they were a shoe in for the final 4.

    Once in our entire basketball history we have gone perfect on the road as far as I'm aware. Don't be Smoot and start nitpicking words just to argue.

    Yeah...easily the worst no-call in college basketball this year and I'm sure the SEC office will hear tomorrow if they haven't already. Should have never come to that last hail mary anyway.
