Sure. Why not?


You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

We are going to be really good next year, and I don’t think it would be out of the realm of possibility that we get to 14 at some point next season, but we shouldn’t start there. What adds to the stupidity is that they have the probable starters as Porter, Brito, Merrill, Miller, and Queta. Clearly they don’t know anything about the Aggies other than we were good last year and we return most of our talent and production.

Guys we were really good last year too. We only lost 7 of 35 games! I'll say it again, we ONLY lost 7 games! And 4 of the losses came on or before January 2nd! I'm not really sure what everyone is expecting for an encore? 30 point blowouts? An undefeated conference season? I think we'll be ranked in the top 25 just like everybody else but it's because we'll be starting the season with much more respect than we began with last season. I'm just wary of what most of you are expecting the next season to look like because 2018-19 was pretty damn good once you take a look back.

But aren't we borderline zoob for thinking we are top 25 team? I mean we need to continue to feel like we are the 3rd best in State constantly because that's were we belong...

All joking aside, I'm freaking pumped up and will add as much fuel to the hype as I can. Going to be a great year... Just you watch!

I hear ya. We had a lot of close conference games last year that could have gone either way. I’m expecting atleast two conference losses and likely more. We will be better, but so will most of the conference. I just hope the conference can perform in the OOC games. I could see us having to sweat out selection Sunday next year, especially if we don’t have a strong OOC resume.

Ya I saw the probable starters and the poll lost credibility for me. Just a little research and they could have known neither Brito or Miller are going to start at the 4

“Top 15”

But we are not a top 15 team at this point. If we go undefeated we are barely a top 10 team.

He makes no mention of the new big guy, and if you read the comments, he didn't research a lot of the other teams very well.

It's cool to be ranked, but did you notice that it was dated at 10pm on May 29? He couldn't even wait 2 more hours to see who had officially entered the draft or returned to school. Granted he mentions that has been taken into account, but why even bother if you are too lazy to try to make a half-decent effort? He even states that for players up in the air they have an asterisk by their name, but there isn't one asterisk in the poll. Either this guy or his editor, or both, really shouldn't have a job.

If we go undefeated that would make us the NCAA Champions. I don't care what they rank us if we win that :rock:

We aren’t top 25 without a new PG, let alone alone top 15.

We will have a nice little season in the MW, everybody will start pounding their chests, and then promptly get our asses kicked in the NCAA tourney.

Merrill graduates, Queta goes to the NBA and we will have wasted a golden opportunity and we start over rebuilding.

Three teams have gone undefeated into the NCAA tournament since 1990. The lowest ranked of the two was number 2.

I think we'd be better than barely top ten. But it's not going to happen, obviously.

When I started undefeated thread, I was talking about the regular season mainly. We went 28-7, and when we made the move to make Porter a PG we lost only one game (the team was sick and on the road.). The team looks like a lot better with everyone coming back who played a significant number of minutes ( 3 of them were freshmen last season.) except Quinn.
4 new players that look good.

Wichita State was highly regarded and highly ranked going in after going to the sweet 16 the year prior.

The other school I can think of is Kentucky and we aren’t Kentucky.

I wonder if this preseason hype open or close some doors for scheduling? Hoping we can schedule decent teams for good quality wins.

Ummmm....we ended the season as a top 25 team with the point guard we have. You can see the rankings here:

Out of all your miserable posts this one needs to be called out.

Fair enough. Let’s hope I’m wrong again next year. You can come back and point out more of my miserable posts.
