We can debate seeds all day but in addition to beating the #14 (SoDak St), #11 (CU), and #10 (Xavier) IN the tourney we also had the following seeds in the regular season.
8- KSU (Twice, 1 by blowout)
11- Texas (twice)
10- West Virginia
6- San Diego State (Without Perry Jones)
7- St Mary's
2 - Kansas
BYU- (Seeded 14 after winning first round game)
We also beat Miss State & Northwestern who were among the first few out.
We lost only 8 games to two 8 seeds, a 1 seed, and two 2 seeds.
Not a bad year.
Don't argue with derka. He's like the WAC-KO of bfans, a poster fellow school members are constantly embarrassed.
Not to gay it up in here, but the reaction of horn fans in this thread is why I like UT so much when we ain't playing.
Y'all might even out classy the ags . . .
I think the point of this thread is to show how much we need Billy Donovan.
The 2009 Baylor team would beat the Baylor team you saw play today worse than Kentucky just did.
They were awesome, and Duke was probably the only team in the tournament who could beat them. And that game could have gone either way.
Totally different story this year. This year Baylor was extremely overated, and had they not had a easy draw, they would have been out long before today.
Did'nt matter who Baylor was playing to get to Duke in 2009. They were going to slaughter them. So dont draw comparisons. Totally different teams.
That team was great defensively, and everyone knew their role. That team benefitted immensely from Tweety Carter's leadership, who came to Baylor as a shooting guard in a point guard's body and willed himself into a great college point guard. For all the $#@! Lomers rightly got, he brought a lot of toughness to that team.
derka, what the $#@! is up with your personal insults?
Thread: Both of Baylor's Elite... (Derka Derka)
already answered, dumbass. stop starting $#@! just to start it.- Rocko
For the guy who says he could care less about rep, he has repped me from different user names 7 times in the last month, give or take. Pretty $#@!ing patethic.
So what's your point here man? it really seems to me that youre just trying to be confront me. I mean come on man, look at your last couple of posts directed at me. You wrote:
When if you would just scroll your ass to the top of this page, you'd see that the first words posted are this:Huh? If we had made it to the final four, would the season had been successful? I guess I want to see where you stand on teams like last year' VCU bunch. They had a pretty meh regular season and almost played for the championship. Was there season really just average? I mean, they finished 4th in the CAA in the regular season.
So you either really really suck at reading, or youre being confrontational just for the sake of it. Either way, your track record of baiting me, attacking me, posting non sequitors aimed at me, etc, doesnt give you the same courtesies that are given to the posters here withh a track record of genuinely wanting to talk basketball as opposed to just wanting to start $#@!. And the same applies to your previous post, where you asked me another stupid question that had nothing to do with with anything. So you're either dumb, or just sstarting $#@! to start $#@!. Either way, I have little patience for it, and it's $#@!ing asinine that so many of you constantly come in here to post non sequitor personal attacks against me, only to convince yourselves that I am the problem, and that I am the one who can't post with any civility towards others, when it comes down to you not disrespecting me first.I dont understand what your point is, as I never made the case that the tournament chamnpions are the best team. The 2007 Patriots had a great season, despite not winning the Super Bowl. The UCONN Huskies had a great season because they won it all, despite a merely average regular season. So I guess what I am really trying to say is it's unfair how much weight we put on post season failure when judging how well an entire season went. Missouri still had a very good season, despite their early exit.
OMFG, there is nothing gayer in the entire world than you $#@!gots who post about it every time I neg rep you. So. fuycking. gay. I get neg repped with plenty frequency, and I never go crying about it in the public forums. You know why? Because as you said, I don't care about rep. Its $#@!ing fake, internet reputation points, of which I have more than almost everyone here. In fact, if you give me back my rep points from the 2 times blacklab cleared all my rep, I actually have more than anyone here. But because I care about that zero percent, I dont ever bring it up when someone neg reps me, because it doesnt matter.
dont worry.. itll all come crashing down in a few years once the NCAA investigates Drew...
then he will bail to some other school and avoid sanctions
Why do people keep bringing this up? Is there any evidence that Drew is dirty, or just suspicion? I know he negative recruits and I know it really, really pissed off Barnes and Knight when he first took the job.
But negative recruiting is not illegal or immoral, it's just not in the good ol' coach unwritten code of conduct.
The dude who implied Drew tried to poach him away has retracted his story. What else is there, other than the fact that it does seem amazing that the guy built the program back up from literally nothing just 9 years ago to better than it had ever been before.
didn't Drew come under suspicion when John Wall named Baylor as one of his finalists?
Here's some smoke, but no fire:
And D.J. Cooper issued a statement saying no coach "directly" tried to contact him since he signed with Ohio.At last year's Big 12 tournament, Texas coach Rick Barnes had harsh words for Drew, stemming from Drew's hiring of Dwon Clifton as director of player development, a newly created position. Clifton happened to be the AAU coach of Kentucky freshman superstar John Wall. Although Drew isn't the only coach adding AAU coaches to his staff, many consider it a shady practice. It ultimately did not pay off in Wall's recruitment, but Barnes made it clear he didn't like it.
"There's a line that he knows that he can't cross with me," Barnes told The New York Times. Asked whether he had anything else to say about Drew's recruiting practices, Barnes said, "I wish I could."
One of Drew's first hires was assistant Jerome Tang, who headed a basketball team at Heritage Christian, a small private school in Cleveland, Texas, near Houston. Heritage became known as a state powerhouse that played across the country and whose gymnasium was larger than the school itself. Tang had a reputation among public high school coaches in the Houston area for luring top players to play and live at Heritage, which closed its doors in 2006.
interesting fact: baylor has been to two elite eights in three years.
interesting fact: texas has not.
advantage baylor, haters can hate, but they've got a helluva program working right now and I don't give a $#@! what barnes thinks of drew, drew has his $#@!ing number right now. quit bitching, get better, or get out.
cue - tropheus doesn't post here so he doesn't know $#@! argument. $#@! that, this board is a cesspool.
