We are playing for sole possession of 1st place atop the conference standings. We are currently 16-3 and tied for the conference lead. Big weekend in store for us.

We are also receiving votes for the Top 25 Coaches poll:

There are some rumblings around UT country that Kaspar is on a short list of people that the Longhorns would look at if they parted ways with Smart at the end of the season. To think that people on here wanted him gone three years ago. :wink: :wink:

So after this win, what do you think our projected W-L for conference play will be?
We still have to play UTA twice, ULM once, GS once, ULL once and Troy once more. The rest we "should" win.

Currently in bracketology, we moved up to a 13 seed with the win being matched up with Louisville in the western bracket.

My projection is 14-4 or 13-5. Which I think may be good enough to win the league this year. Most years you can't lose more than 2-3 games but seems to be more parity at the top this year.

I hope you're right. With 10 games left, we need to win more than half our remaining games. Does yesterday drop us out of mid-major top 25, and what about our net rating? We've got the next 3 games at home. Hope we win all or at least 2, and get some nice size crowds. Maybe that t-shirt night will attract some more students/people.

We should stay in the mid-major poll. May drop a couple spots. I'm sure we lost the two votes in the coaches poll. All those polls are released today so we'll find out later.

NET rating actually improved this weekend. Went into the weekend at 101, rose to 80 after the GSU win, dropped back to 94 after the GS loss.

We really need to sweep this 3-game homestand.

Ok, thanks. A road lose maybe isn't so bad.

Only feel 1 spot in mid-major ranking.

I expected this to be a loss, particularly after the GAST game. We were a little too high on ourselves after that game and they are a solid team. I still think four losses in conference will be our floor, hopefully one of those doesn't come during the conference tourney.

well, that was a bummer. :( Ok, we're at 3 losses in conference, and the next 2 at home. I don't want to say must win both, but we really do. Fts should not be a problem and cost us a win. Just when we get a big crowd, too.

What is it with the FTs? Seems like we are missing more as season goes on.

Human psychology at work. When you tell yourself "don't do such and such, don't do such and such"....that's what you end up doing. They're psyching themselves too much, being a big home crowd and pivotal game didn't help any either.
