    We are due for a solid game. I hope to god this isn't another 2 hours of endless frustration making the same mistakes.

    Hopefully, we turn some corners today.

    Both teams will be fighting like hell to not start 1-3, so it's not going to be easy.

    I would love to see what this team can do if they would just do 3 things consistently well.

    Less than 12 TO's game- quit giving the other team free possessions

    Win the rebounding battle- which used to be this programs mantra

    Limit the opposition to less than 70 PPG


    I'm giving up on trying to "fix" the offense b/c we just don't have the personnel and shooters.

    Agreed. If we lose, we lose. But please quit giving the ball away and play some inspired defense please. I want to see guys diving for loose balls, creating to's and box out, rebound........

    The game is on Fox (flagship), and one of the three commenters is Andy Katz. I would love to see a strong performance, of course, but the telecast and crew make it even more important for a good showing. Man, this team needs a win today.

    I see your point but I'm not sure what Katz thinks of us is the real concern. If we do something for Katz (and everyone else for that matter) is what concerns me. If we screw the pooch, that would be further evidence of the futility of this team, regardless of what somebody whose name is written on the boot of an animated toy thinks.

    In a way, I think I might have just made your point.

    I am sure if Creighton loses to X, the Bluejay fans will be quite angry.

    We are featuring Quinn Goodman behind the arc. Most certainly, a formula for success.

    Nice job switching on D during the first war.
