It Could be Worse

>> Monday

Even the crazy optimist of a Marquette homer in me will admit to this season being mildly disappointing, but at least we're not Syracuse right now, being at the peril of the selection committee to just be invited to the tournament. They may have won the battle on Saturday, but I'll gladly claim victory on the season as a we look at a 5-7 seed and they just hope to have a seed next to them.

The success of our season depends on one thing and one thing only: can we win a tournament game?

Say what you will about the regular season, but we never lost a game that we absolutely should have won. As long as we beat whatever Ohio State or UMass the selection committee throws at us, I will be at least mildly happy with the season.

I agree with Nate. I think at the beginning of the season, I took anything less than a Sweet 16 berth and a run at the League title as a colossal disappointment. Now I'm just looking to get out of the first round.

If we can't get out of the first round this year, then that will be 9 seasons for MU under Tom Crean with only one first round NCAA win (2003). He won't be on the hot seat yet, but his goodwill and slack from the 2003 Final Four run may start to wear off.

Three words: first round exit. I bet we get another 7 seed and bow out to another underachieving -- yet better coached -- team.

Unlike last season, objective data like the Sagarins and Pomeorys really like our teams (ranked 11th and 14th respectively). I think we will fare much better on a neutral court than against Big East teams. That being said, anything from a first round loss to an Elite 8 trip would not surprise and all are very possible.

Turncoat! Paul, you are a turncoat! Do I hear the words of an MU Fanatic-turned-Commie Grateful Red Badger fan? Yes! You soul is corrupted... so very corrupted.
