Wow. Things aren't going so well right now. I thought things were looking up after the VCU game, but it seems we've stagnated or gone back some. What gives? I know we are still young. I think I even presicted a .500 season. But it seems we could have won these games, minus IU.

I too was hoping for more with our basketball team. We won't earn any respect if we don't win any non-conference games.

Our women's team is extremely disappointing. What's going on over there?

Well I suppose some of the players can feel good about themselves after tonights blow out 81-33, even though they play stiffer competition during practice. And the high margin of victory and low points allowed looks good on paper.

We should never EVER play another Div. II, III, or NAIA team in the regular season again. Preseason scrimages are fine. But it is bush league to count these wins.

I agree completely. Who is it helping by playing these schools? Not Liberty. I am happy for a win after the string of close defeats. Liberty doesn't have the program that can bring the fans in for the winter break when school isn't in session so I understand paying a non-Division I school to come in and take a beating but we just need to improve the program to a point where we don't need these games.

Well, that stunk. Lamar handled us quite easily and they made our defense look bad.

Another year of poor out of conference play. I thought after doing well in conference play, we'd have the momentum and improvement to do well throughout the whole season but that hasn't happened yet. Maybe we'll turn it around in the Big South. Why can't we have nice things like postseason play, positive national attention, FBS invitations?

Watched the 2nd half of the Houston game last night. While LU was hitting 3's it was in the game as the TV commentators noted. LU went from being tied to 18 points down in a matter of minutes as Houston drove to the hoop repeatedly rather than settle for outside jumpers as they did in the first half. Houston simply had better, taller athletes and players. My guess is that Houston thought they would have a cake walk and the players played at 80% in the first half, got their tails chewed out at halftime, and then executed fully in the second half.

That sounds pretty acurate. I hope wd can dominate in conference, maybe finish with a respectable record.

Dawson is a complete mystery. The level of play between last year and this year is incredible.... in the wrong direction.

Something has to be going on with the young man.

So far, so good in conference play. Of course we have played two teams we should have beaten anyway. But at least we handled the games well.
