Will Utah State break the top 10?

Post by Behind the Bull » November 29th, 2019, 2:02 pm

Queta is supposed to come back soon and the Aggies are 7-0. If we beat St. Mary's tonight, things could get interesting.
How does everyone feel about the Aggies getting to #10 in the AP Poll?

I think quite a few other teams with bigger wins will jump in front of us. I suspect it would take us awhile to get there.

If we beat St Mary's, that would be a REALLY good win right up there with other teams beating top 25 teams in holiday tournaments. I expect us to stay about the same if we win and maybe move up 1 or 2. If we lose, probably drop to 22-25, but not drop out of the rankings. Unless we got absolutely spanked tonight, then we would drop out but have quite a bit of votes still.

I would be surprised if we dropped out after just one loss.

I think the Aggies would have to get to 14-0 to break the top 10

I agree. We'd need a stack of good wins to really break into the top 10. Following game 14, if we performed well and came away with all wins, I can't imagine that we wouldn't be there. But, we just aren't playing the sort of top teams to really get there otherwise imo. There's a lot of great teams out there, and not being blue bloods or having a history of top-tier performance, the burden of proof really falls on us.

Queta’s coming back soon? Are you privy to info that Smith doesn’t have? He says he has no clue whether Queta will be back in days or weeks.

Let's take it one step at a time. Win tonight first. Then speculate. I hope we win, but tonight concerns me.

Ranking is just a number. I dont care if we were ranked 100th right now (well maybe a little). I do care that we are 7-0 and I do care that we finish the night 8-0. We need this win. We need a quality win. Other than that ranking is just a number. Winning the MWC Championship and putting ourselves in a position to win a tourney game or two is not just a number (but I guess two is a number).

I wasn’t sure how tonight’s game will go. But now that I’ve seen this thread, I feel 100% confident we will lose.

If key players didn’t have nagging injuries that slow them down I would feel better about tonight.

The type of posts made on here this past week have been the most stereotypical jinxing type posts I’ve ever seen.

In light of all these posts I think there’s no chance we win tonight. I’m betting the farm on st.
Mary’s.

I guarantee SMC wins tonight. I have been telling everyone I know to bet the farm on SMC -3. I personally have invested the Christmas fund on that wager.

If we keep winning absolutely. A lot of tough games to win to get there though starting with tonight. Winning tonight would be a great win.

I’d love it if the Aggies were ranked in the top 10, but I don’t think at this point they will get there, nor should they be at this point.

But any bets on where Michigan will be ranked next week? I think they should be top 10 after this week.

I think it’s funny when people predict the Aggies are gonna lose on here. If the Aggies lose then they get to say I told you so to everyone. If the Aggies win then they get to celebrate the win. It’s kind of a win win either way. Well I don’t care what people think and I don’t believe in jinxes so I’m gonna say it. I believe that we will win! 😈

Will they break into the top 10?

Answer: No.

Just play hard and prove it in March.

Huh? What's wrong with making that call for gaming purposes that SMC wins a squeaker at home?

Given the present health of critical personnel, it's a rational call. Doesn't mean one doesn't hope he's wrong.

There are so many posts on here beating our chest. Talking about how we could be the #1 team, talking about how we might become ranked top 10, talking about how good we are, everyone above us is losing, etc.

I really don't think we're a top 15 team right now. I think we can get there but we aren't now. I do think we're top 25 but I so wish people would stop putting that pressure and expectations on this team and just enjoy the ride.

SDSU is probably a better team than we are right now FYI.

Nah, the guy who started this thread also linked to a new podcast he's trying to promote. So, he hopped into a few threads hoping to stir up some conversation and direct traffic to his podcast. I can't speak definitively because I haven't listened, but judging by his commentary, I can't imagine there's going to be much good to the aforementioned podcast.
