Maybe it's not that bad?
OK, so far zero (0) wins for either MBB or WBB in 6 D1 games. Losing to Corpus really hurt. But maybe it's not that bad.

MBB: None of the four losses were blowouts, two of them were played without Levi, and maybe 5-6 points of the margins in each game were run up in the last minute of intentional fouls. Out of the new players Freeman and Johnson look good although I wish Johnson (and Jackson) would quit going for dunks. Should be able to get a few WAC wins at least.

WBB: Thought 12 new players, 6 of them freshmen would be a disaster. But they played decently against Texas with a lead into the 2nd quarter. Trelynn Tyler played for the first time, 29 points. Agustus, Jones, Templeton all look strong also. And it seems like everyone on the team can hit threes. Could actually be competitive in conference.

The defense is keeping the other teams in the 60's and 70's but it's the usual story every year of no offense. The defense seems to be getting better every year but the offense stays the same. That basically tells us that its a talent issue. Hill seems to be a good coach but I don't know what he could do to attract better players. Look at GCU. Majerle sucks as a coach but the huge amount talent he brought in makes up for that.

You are right Dan really sucks as a coach with a 62% winning percentage. He might not be the best coach out there but he doesn't suck. lol

Well I didn't want to turn this into a gcu topic but if it wasn't for Majerle's nba reputation that for some reason recruits love. He doesn't really bring anything else to the table.

With that demeanor it's surprising he doesn't get more technicals. Guess he knows where to draw the line. Usually.

RE: Maybe it's not that bad?
MBB: Well maybe it is that bad. 14 point half-point lead against Corpus, at home, and still managed to lose the game. It's December and we still don't have a single win against a real team. Other than the DII games all the rest of the OOC schedule is way tougher than Corpus. If we're going to be honest most of the WAC schedule is also way tougher than Corpus. Real Time RPI isn't real accurate this time of year but they have us at #351 out of 354, behind Chicago State.

WBB: Big relief, finally a solid win against a real team. Too bad Agustus is only going to be here one year.

It may not be at all but the coach does have a worried look on his face when asked about Javon Levi:

How long is Javon Levi expected to be out? What is his injury?

Thanks for finding that video. At least we know it's an injury now. Seeing him on the bench I was worried it was something else.

If it's any consolation, the WAC appears to be WAAAAAY down this year, including NMSU.

Excellent 2OT win over Sam Houston. Varner 33-13, Bratton finally playing like a starter now that he's not, and best of all Levi back with 13 assists.

Too bad I had to teach class and missed it.

Of course we should be able to beat any NAIA team, but UTRGV still needs to take Mid America Christian seriously to avoid a major embarassment. They were national champions a few years back, and are 11-1 this year.

I like how he's decided to own the "dirtiness" thing.

Vaqueros on an actual national network. First time for me watching them on my regular TV.

Hoping we can avoid a full up thrashing.
