I think we're solidly in honestly based on the wins we have. The only question thing is can Avery avoid mounting up the bad losses - something he hasn't been able to do since he got here.

Have several periods of 4 game winning streaks and we will be OK

If Avery makes it this year by skin of its teeth and loses in Round 1, do you call for his head?

Fans will but admin won’t so it won’t matter. Make the tourney and you’re safe in Tuscaloosa. Our starting 5 could be Shaq, Kobe, Jordan, Bird and Magic and as long as we made The Dance, one and done will satisfy the good ole football baws.

I said this earlier in the thread: results wise we can't really justify firing Avery after this season even if we just go to the NIT. That doesn't change the fact that when I watch our team, I'm unimpressed with the coaching.

It's the same as Clay Helton at USC or Jim McElwain at Florida- results wise they did enough to keep their jobs the first two seasons, but you just got the feeling they weren't going to be the answer.

do we need to fret after every game about who is in and who is out. The last three weeks are probably more important than the first three weeks of the season. We have a very tough start to the SEC season. Wimp said before the KY game if we could go 3 & 2 that would be a very good start for us.
Its still going to be difficult because on the TN game.

Ole Miss as a 4 seed? I know they are having a very surprising year and are a good team but I think that is a major overreaction.

Isn't it based on right this second and not projecting rest of the year results?

In general yes but I don't think they really have to be a certain way. Even using current results/rankings, it doesn't make sense to me. Their net ranking is 29, not something worthy of a 4 seed imo. FWIW, Joe has them as a 10 seed.

No, but I'd remain skeptical that we'd have gotten in barel yet again, when I think we're a lock at this point. But I'd also praise Avery for the fact he got us in after a rocky start and losing a lottery pick.

Not arguing Avery is a bad coach. Just in my opinion, he's never going to be a really good coach that some fans think he'll be.

Still not sure about Avery but expect he is here for awhile if he chooses.

Nothing I have seen tells me he is a great coach but really what do I know?

I think we could be somewhat better with a little better choice of who gets playing time when.

As a view from the other side (you’re an A&M fan correct?) what are your thoughts on the game tomorrow?

Agreed, It is funny because overall him and Joe are probably the most well known but both a very inaccurate. Not sure if you have ever seen the website Bracket Matrix, shows how accurate each bracket projections are over the years. Joe is 68th over a 5 year span and Jerry is 82nd.

Why would you not. Just wish he would get more consistent with his scoring.
