How many times did they blow by us to the basket and virtually all 3 point shots were uncontested and when we did contest it was a 3 shot foul? We played like we had lead in our shoes. No excuse for that kind of performance from a 20-3 team. Just when we are starting to get national recognition and our fan base is getting excited about the possibilities, we lay an egg. We will probably see GA State in the finals of the conference tournament. Marlin had better come up with a better defensive scheme than last night or it will be blow-out city again. Maybe all the winning got to their heads. If so, last night should have grounded them. That said, Geaux Cajuns!

    He has to run the table and win the regular season title And get to the Conference Tourney Championship game to get an NIT bid..... otherwise, with his record against top 150 RPI teams it's buy in tourney time again.... f*** that..... that's a fact guys.... this team is capable of that talent wise and I hope he does it because I don't give a crap who the Coach is, just get it done...

    Expectations definitely change, but thinking and acting like you lost 4-in-a-row is often a self fulfilling prophecy.

    More often than not, freaking out (overreacting) when a long win streak ends causes losing streaks.

    I might be wrong but I think just running the table in the regular season get an automatic NIT bid.

    Yep, because you would be the regular season champion which guarantees you an NIT berth.

    There are no automatic bids to the NIT as far as I know

    To get the NIT bid, Cajuns just have to match GA State the rest of the way in number of losses. Assuming no other team has a realistic chance to catch the top 2. Cajuns do have one "extra game" to be played as GA State has played one more than the Cajuns.

    #1 seed (regular season champ) gets an auto bid to the NIT if that team doesn't win the conference tournament.

    Ok...I stand corrected, it is an auto bid to the NIT for a regular season title

    I think the NIT auto bid is something the NCAA implemented after they purchased the NIT.

    This is all new to me.

    Just checked the RPI and UTA is now tied with Iowa at 149. So technically we are 2-4 against the Top 150, 0-4 against the Top 148.

    Cool.

    Sounds like a "Today Only Special."

    well, thats not what i said, because of a loss you cant say "well, if i would have told you we would be 20-4, would you take it" thats trying to hide or ignore the very bad loss we had.

    it looked like we had a different game plan - maybe trying to stay out of foul trouble or something - because our guys looked like they were thinking out there and not just doing. if a guy got a step by them it was obvious we were giving up an easy lay up as opposed to a contested one.

    Not hiding anything. Not ignoring anything.

    Trying to stem "The Sky is Falling" mentality from going mainstream because of one bad loss.

    You see this happen many times on the strip between Pine & Exchange.

    Pressuring or trapping 10' outside the three point line has never worked for us against Ga State. I think we actually need to compact the coverage a little to provide help with drivers. I think we would do better against them with something like a match-up zone, but that just me.

    Just never made the right adjustments to get enough stops to go on a run. I agree, we needed to get out of that man pressure and either play straight man, or I like your idea of the match up zone.

    Very interested to see how they respond. We will know what kind of character we have after Saturday.
