I’m over whether Texas will make the tournament or not and now focused on whether or not we will finish above .500 on the season?  

At 15-11 and games remaining against:  OU, K State, OSU, Kansas and WVU it’s a tough call.  Factor that with a tough opponent in round 1 of the Big 12 Tourney because we are currently sitting in 8th place.  

I’ll be interested to see what our new AD does with this mess.  I’m afraid if Shaka returns next season, the overriding reason will be a contract that makes it too expensive to part ways.

Groundhog Day....glad I didn't waste my time watching yet another loss.  Heard on the radio today Smart has a guaranteed contract through 2023...nice move there Steve Patterson.

Shaka is now 47-47 at Texas, rounding out year 3.  In the 10 team Big “12” we have finished:  4th, 10th and currently sit at 9th.

Not one Texas player shot 50% or better last night, not one. The fact they were in this game at all is amazing. Yea it's only Baylor but their last game they beat Kansas by 16 in Waco.

It was mentioned during the game last night if the players are starting to feel the effect of what Jones is going through and to be honest, I've wondered the same thing myself.

For Texas to stand a chance in any of the remaining games, they need Dylan and Roach to hit some shots. If not, they'll be lucky to make the NIT.

I know we don't like "youth" excuse but, per @tejasrulz and ESPN:



The thing about the youth excuse is that I’ve been hearing it in:  football, basketball and baseball for the better part of 10 years.  I wasn’t a math major; but something doesn’t seem right?
