I wasn't aware that I ever referenced Oregon's loss, let alone suggested that it diminished our win. My personal feeling is that drawing conclusions based on any one game among the thousands played each season is ridiculous. Which is why I simply said the Ball State result was interesting, no more, no less. Other members of the board may disagree, which is fine.

I wasn't saying you did; another poster did in another thread (and I think there's an inclination among certain of our fans -- on the football side, too -- to cite those things that make us look bad and ignore those that might reflect positively on us).

I've never understood that. It's a game and it's supposed to entertain. So why bother watching at all if it does nothing but make you (them) mad? We're not like the old sad sack Cubbies or the tribe where the misery just loved company. perplexing.

Some pumpers are fine on here.....however, other pumpers seem extremely defensive (borderline insulted) if you point out shortcomings and/or areas we want to improve.

Having said that, there are also a couple of posters who can't wait for something to go wrong too.

Our defense definitely needs to get better. I hope the communication and energy level improves significantly against USC on Friday (as compared to our last two games). And yes, at the pace we play, we are naturally going to give up more points based upon more possessions. This team's success will likely depend on beating teams 90-80 instead of 70-60.....we are a poor man's North Carolina. It's something we are all going to have to get used to. But as long as we win against some quality teams, I can likely get on board with any style.

Definitely D needs to improve to play against the top 10 teams...but we were 11/20 (?) last year...hell, I'll take 100-99 win 7 days a week...at this point.

It's like the football team..pretty sure if we beat the bulldogs 55/35 we'll be happy...yeah D isn't great but good enough to win.
