61-58 at the final media timeout. All the momentum with ACU right now.

3:49 left to turn it around.

We're shooting 27% in the 2nd half.....

We're going to blow an 8 point halftime lead and lose here. Back to back Saturday losses to recent moveup D1 private Southland schools.

I've seen enough to know it's gonna be a rough year. We just don't have the pieces to replace Kavin Gilder-Tilbury and Ojai Black. Team needs to try and gel as the season progresses. The newer guys look like they have talent, but we just can't put it together to win games.

72-68 final.

Awful loss. 3rd awful loss we've already piled up this year.

5-5 on the season. 4-5 against D1 teams with likely a bottom 10 strength of schedule in the country.

Luckily I'm the only idiot around here paying attention.

I checked in when we were up by 11. Thought we were okay. Boy was I wrong.

This game was very frustrating. R. Miller was aweful in his limited playing time after I had bragged about him. Pearson shot the ball very poorly. He is settling for jump shots too often imo. I'm not sure what to think at this point. I hope you are wrong x, but at this point who knows. The team is going to have to grow up or it will be a long season. These 2nd half losses are becoming too frequent and habitual. Here's hoping they do start to gel.

Ok. This is inexcusable. First, Kaspar schedules this trash ooc schedule. Second, he can't maintain a winning record. Losing to HBU and ACU, hit the road man!

Ha. Pump the brakes fellas.

I couldn't agree more that losses to HBU and ACU are inexcusable. To be fair to those teams, they actually surprised me with how good they were. Both had legitimate D1 guys and both had one really good player (Ibarra at HBU and Friday at ACU) that could play for just about anyone and certainly could play in the Sun Belt. Nevertheless, after last season I hoped we were past the point of losing to Southland teams any more than very occasionally. To me, this signifies a likely step back from last season and it could be significant. I hope I'm wrong. We've yet to get 100% healthy and lots of new guys getting a lot of minutes right now. Hopefully something clicks soon.

That being said, Kaspar has done a really good job in his 4+ seasons turning the program around. He took over a struggling program and improved it every season through 4 years. Last year's record was the best since '98-'99 in terms of winning percentage and the most wins in a season since '93-'94. He's not going anywhere yet.

We'd have a new coach every season in every sport if some of you guys were the AD.

It's just frustrating to see go 3+ minutes without scoring any points. I think that's characteristic of Kaspar's teams at this point. HBU loss I'll let go, but there's no reason to cough up a double digit lead like that.

I'll try to pump the breaks. However, I'm not talking about Withers and his rebuilding process. I'm still happy with the Withers hire.
Is this Kaspars 5th season? How patient should we be? By now, he should have recruited and built a team that does not lose to freaking HBU and ACU! I don't care who graduated, that's unacceptable. New arena opening next year, might be time for new blood.

How's this for a weird stat:
Kaspar's previous stops prior to TXST were SFA for 13 seasons and before that Incarnate Word for 9 seasons. His worst season at both SFA and UIW if you don't count year 1? His 5th....

Anyhow:
Kaspar's records at TXST:
Year 1: 8-23 (4-14 Sun Belt)
Year 2: 14-17 (7-13 Sun Belt)
Year 3: 15-16 (8-12 Sun Belt)
Year 4: 22-14 (11-7 Sun Belt)

There's just no justifiable reason to be talking about this. He's our coach. Two really pathetic recent losses notwithstanding.

Any spectacular wins in that list, Mr X?
How many wins from Div III?
How many wins from power conferences?

Not many great wins, but significantly less bad losses than any other period for the last two decades.

I've watched a lot of bobcat basketball over the last 12 years, and last year's team was easily the best in that timeframe. I'm not content with last year and am very disappointed by this year's start. But this really is a silly conversation to have.
