The beauty of split divisions. We probably would have been 4th place in a normal season, instead we finish 2nd in our division and folks want to give JJ coach of the year. Prove me wrong JJ, please!

The west was better than the east too. If we played more games, who knows. We didn't have to play LT or UNT or UTSA. Who's to say we would've won each of those.

From kenpom, we are the 7th best team. Not to get into it about what we've been doing lately, but just showing that we are more middle of the pack than a top team. Did someone really suggest JJ gets COY? If so, I'd like a hit too.

Coach of the year should be for LT or UAB, possibly UNT depending how far they go.

The lossess at home to UAB weren't great but they are a good team. We should be a dog.

Man, I really don't want to see another first round exit. C'mon JJ, get us at least one win. Should be a battle. I didnt realize we were the underdog even with the higher seed.

They have demonstrated over the course of the season that they are the better team. But I don't think they are playing their best ball right now.
