You can keep saying that, but taking experience and stuff into account, it simply will not be true. I don't give a crap about a 4* freshman when compared to Buddy, Cousins, and Spangler as seniors. That's just silly.

kelvin feasted on a much easier conf
I don't give a crap about those ratings. They are not reflective of reality. Like I already told you, all it really means is that our bad teams are better than the bad teams in other conferences. Does. Not. Matter. If you are really trying to tell me that the Big 12 is easily the best conference over the last 6 years, you are a lost cause. Again, it's a flawed way to measure conference strength.

IF you had those results at your job you would be fired.
Exactly. Those are cold hard facts.

Like we had under Billy and Kelvin

Under Lon

60% winning percentage
50% conference winning percentage
Average finish in Conference 5
Win the conference 0% of the time
Win the conference tournament 0% of the time
out of the first round 25% of the time
2 seasons of no post season at all
of course they coached in a different era in a much easier conf and didn't have to start at a point of total rebuild ...

As such, the bottom half is much better today than it was back then.

I'm extremely disappointed we could not take care of business and beat WVU last night. I'm not ready to move on from Coach Kruger (though I wish he upgraded his assistants), but acknowledge that he may be on the hot seat next year if we have to keep sweating out Selection Sunday. Like you and others have pointed out, our program is better than that.
OU also didn't have to play several of the better teams twice a year

well if you want to talk about total rebuild, then how do you explain years 6, 7, & 8 under lon? Year 6 is the only 20 loss season ever at OU. Whose mess is he cleaning up?

But don't you understand, WT knows far more when it comes to ranking college basketball conferences than the people who do it for a living! Also, is it really that difficult for people to understand what you are saying when you refer to the "talent" on next year's roster? It is unreal that people can't understand that "experience or stuff" isn't relevant in assessing pure talent. Boulder has never said that next year's team will be better than the 2016 FF team. How that concept gets continually missed is beyond me.

years 7 and 8 OU is going the tourney

year 6 OU had a couple of recruiting misses that hurt the team and hurt the season

Lon has had 1 bad year as coach of OU and it was year 6 ... OU is now back on the full up swing ..

My response would be that years 7 and 8 ended in the NCAA tournament and were not total rebuilds. As for year 6, we sucked. Had the kind of season that everyone but blue bloods has occasionally. Fortunately, we have them far less often than most programs. If that happened on a regular basis, sure, Lon shouldn't last long. But since we have had no other season like that, it's anything but a trend.

Ive tried to argue this to him and he doesn't agree bc our bench was james and the juco guard.. it makes no sense. But it'll be fun to watch kruger go 19-13 next year prolly with his most "talented roster"... i pray it doesn't happen and we go 25-7ish but no basis to hope for that

He really does a disservice to how special hield/cousins/woodard/spangler were posting that

You call the last two years "full upswing?" 6 games below .500 in conference, 0-3 record in KC/NCAA, likely a double digit seed in the dance both years...

Is this how far we've fallen under lon where these results are considered a smashing success?

Is the bottom of the conference so much better because we are now part of the bottom of the conference?

Yes. Damn pc culture. The players should get a trophy for making it as a 10 seed! Yippee

This might be the most obvious use of a strawman ever. So, I guess congratulations are in order? Where did I say, hint, imply, suggest, or otherwise indicate that we can't win games? I said, as did Boulder, that the strength of the conference is relevant in assessing things . . . a pretty noncontroversial statement, to everyone who doesn't turn it into something else.

I guess i just disagree. We should be top 4 every season in any conference pretty much. Its not a valid excuse in my opinion to be 7th
