Disappointed and depressing. Didn't we start like this last year?

It's hard to get all wrapped up in games and results like these when you know you just need to get hot for a week in March. That's just how it is.

I do, however miss the days when we would eat these kind of teams for breakfast.

Jim,

The problem with that is if Kent State isnt careful they will soon be playing in front of 428 fans in February at the MAC Center. Sure, there is plenty of time in this young season to get the thing rolling and the people on this board are fans regardless. But when losses to SELa and Loyola start piling up who really wants to go see the Western Michigan game on Valentine’s Day ( for instance)

As someone who has a long drive to attend home games - I agree. It's too easy to get into a mind set that the only games that are of importance are Akron, maybe OU and the MAC tourney. This weekends results across the MAC - us, UT-Cornell(?) and Akron-Dayton firm up the argument for making the MAC a one bid league. Before the weekend I was looking forward to and considering going to the Xavier game -now I fear it will be ugly. I knew we would miss Hall and yes we did start slow last year but we did beat Texas on the road

I agree. I hate to see college basketball going the way of the NBA. An 82 game pre season and then the playoffs. You are right on attendance. The NBA can get away with it due to all its star power. Who is going to go to a MAC game just to see an individual player? Besides what happened last year isn’t going to happen often. Let’s face it some luck is involved when you make a ten game run at the end of the season.

Yes but getting hot for a week in March doesn’t happen nearly as often as fans comment on it. We were a bit lucky last year to pull it off.

Peterson ???
Duling ???
Avery ???
Somebody ???

has to become a consistent double-figure scorer and judging from the game-by-game box scores its tough to figure out who that is going to be ... if anybody ... to join ADR and JW ...
From what I've seen, ADR looks like a 20- minute per game guy. To me, Frederick looks like he'll be the #2 scorer

There is no excuse for SELA loss ... but Valpo/Loyola are pretty solid Missouri Valley teams ... Kent could have won the Valpo game ... Loyola. don't know.

Give the comp a little respect. ... Can't wait to see the team in person, but might not be until Christmas time ...

Burden, they didn't just get hot a week in March last season. They won 9 of the last 13 going into the MAC tournament. I would say it is VERY rare to be hot that one week if a team is cold or only so-so going into the tournament. This team has plenty of time to round into a good team. The sooner they do the better, of course. Last year it wasn't until late January. That was cutting it close.

I don’t disagree. In my previous post I called it a 10 game streak. Even those are pretty rare though.
