The negativism on this board is nothing but an accurate reflection of the negative results on the field. You get seasons of 3-9, 1-11, 2-11, 3-9, 2-3, and now 0-2 by any major program, and the conversations on their message boards would make this look like Pollyanna.

There's a difference between negative comments regarding the on-field/on-court performance and repetitive doom & gloom comments about Rice athletics and the University in general. It's the latter which is getting awful old for a lot of people.

It’s a university in Texas.. the program people care about is football, and to a lesser extent, baseball and hoops.

I’m happy we have a great women’s soccer team. But it’s not the same, so stop acting like it is.

I love our track and field/cross country programs.

They don't move the needle one centimeter.

Football is 16-52 since the beginning of the 2015 season. THAT is what gives people the (false) impression about ALL of Rice athletics.
