    How spoiled are we as a fan base? We’re simultaneously cheering on a top 10 team and frustrated with how they’re playing poorly

      Don’t say “we”. We’re not all like those “fans”.

      I’m usually not one of “those” fans, but I’ve been occasionally frustrated with this team’s lack of effort on defense and on the glass. I’m turning around on that lately (probably because we’re actually putting in the effort on defense and rebounding).

      “We” includes myself and a pretty large chunk of BBN – including KSR – during that bad 5 game stretch though.

      Well I guess I was in the minority.

      Its because we know we dont have the horses to win it all. Fans want titles at UK. 1 title since 98

      Yes “we” want at least 7 titles per decade. But Slater wants 9. Go figure.

    We have played 3 of the top 5, 4 of the top 8, 5 of the top 12. I realize we are 2-4 in those games but we are battle-tested – hopefully this will help us when we face top tier teams in the tournament.

    Since the committee announced their initial 16 seed rankings I have felt our region will be more important than the actual seeding.
