I know there have been a number of excuses given for why this season’s team plays the way it plays. At this point I am not buying 99 percent of it. If you can beat the team at home, you better damn well beat at least one of them on the road. We are not the 1990’s New Mexico Lobos.
Watching the game yesterday, the thing that stood out was when Tommy Connor was doing the coaching at the end of the half, we seemed to surge. Then we folded up and let it get away at the end.
The positive - we didn’t get run out of the gym.
The negative - when we needed it, we couldn’t hit water if we fell out of a boat in the middle of the lake.
Going 0-fer the conference, at a minimum should make Larry’s seat get pretty damned warm. If we lose to Ralphie this upcoming weekend, it better be close or you might see a couple of more degrees added.
I don’t see how we are not a one and done at the conference tourney. Oh, and there will be no post season tournament knocking on our door.
God help the program if any of the freshmen who are showing promise hit the portal.
Yeah, it’s a pessimistic view. Given what just happened, I don’t know how you get more than we caught lightning in a bottle when we beat Kentucky and East Provo. Everything else was a big needs improvement…lots of improvement to contend for titles. If the post season turns into another rebuild discussion…
