Title: Tournament Talk Twenty Nineteen
Post by: Chingon on December 10, 2018, 01:03:49 PM
Guys, will 19-12 (9-9) get us in?  I think it does, but man if we slip below .500 in conference it might be t-r-i-c-k-y.

i was thinking of firing up a 2019 kp30nt thread in honor of the season opening loss, but i guess i don't even know how they choose tournament teams anymore.

i hope kp30nt hasn't been made impossible before someone was even able to achieve it.

You rightly pointed out it would be very uncomfortable to have a gun pointed at your head.  Tough spot really.

Kam and Barry showed a lot of what they need to do for this team to win in the second half today.  Maiwen looked stout today too.  A lineup of kam, bb, x, wade, mak should be salty AF.  It’s incredibly frustrating to not get the most of out this team, I hope oscar can it figured out.  The defense is still elite which is a good baseline.

wetwillie, i agree that it's a fine line between barely losing a bunch of big 12 games and barely winning a bunch.  that's why it is so important to savor the losses now.  no one can say what bruceuary will bring.

20 would be a good start, but I don't know if it's the magic number.

It would be really nice if we could beat @ISU or @OU.

Also, something that I've thought about is how we look when/if Wade is back. The committee has been generous in the past with teams that have had a star player out with injury. Something to think about anyway.

Guys, I think we are going to make the NCAA Tournament this year. Our Cats are a p flawed team, but you have to believe that this team is at least better than above average NCAA seed wise. The were basically average last season and everyone is back. This is oscar's first real crescendo at K-State and it's not bad but it isn't looking like a great one.

I think the expectations set were out of reach logistically, but we're fans and we buy in cuz that's what we do. We want to go apeshit because our team could win the conference and/ or set itself up for a deep run in March. Can we get that done this year? Maybe.

How low does the rebuilding year take us? I don't see what help we get next season makes up for what we lose. Are we starting a Woolyesque B12 winning percentage in the grill next season? Maybe.

oscar limbo.

Perhaps they can sell tons of playing time, a recent elite 8 and a car or something for some ballers. How cool would it be to get a one-and-doner again? rough ridin' Michael Beasley 2.0. Hell I'd be through the roof getting a Bill Walker.

That reminds me how incredible it is that 2010 team was a legitimate National Title contender with nary more than an NBA cup of coffee on the roster until Rodney McGruder decided to become the most physically fit basketball basketball player on the planet. Is SR The Flush Jr. better than Sophomore Angel Rodriguez? Is Claws a better draft project than Rodney? Some NBA scouts believed X could be an early entry coming into the season because of a nice run in a tournament that is a crap shoot.

College basketball is exciting.
