    Apologies. That made sense, as I said. You put more thought in it.

    And B, I'm not even upset with people for saying we wouldn't make the conference tourney. I don't really care one way or the other. In fact, it's more fun when people have different ideas of what the season will bring. My view is, people shouldn't get upset when a player reminds people that they were wrong... For a number of reasons.

    We all know why. And I get it too. I see both sides of it.

    My main issue is timing. Win the tourney next week and shut everyone up. Sunbelt West is not the goal. Postseason is.

    But the question was making the conference tourney... And they did. As the #2 seed.

    That wasn't the intent of his tweet and you know it.

    The intent was to throw it in the face of the doubters.. The irony is, 99% of the people here would say the same thing. Maybe not publicly, but they'd definitely be saying it.

    MAT, any time something like this happens on social media, the offending parties get all -fumble- and try to find ways to justify what they've done or criticize those who are critical.

    You can tell who the guilty parties are on here by their responses to HM's tweet.

    I'm sure Robe wasn't happy with the tweet. He wants his players to ignore the doubters, not lower themselves to their level.

    They didn't win a series until April, started 3-6 in conference and had one of the worst BA in the nation. This is out of 200 plus teams. They couldn't hit a beach ball.

    They are playing much better and turned around their season. It is a heck of an accomplishment to win the West. All that aside, the answer is indeed no. In March it did not look like they were making the tournament.

    Yes, because having an opinion makes us -fumble-. Get out of here.

    Looking at March and drawing any conclusions from March as it relates to the end of the conference season, is not a very smart bet.

    Also occurring in March: Beat LSU, Beat Vandy, SHOULD have taken the series from UT at UT, SHOULD have beaten a 40 win Wright St, SHOULD have beaten Miss St.. Played the 4th best NC schedule in America and damn near came out .500, with major injuries and and virtually no offense.

    It was a legit question, I love the answer. And I am thrilled the team took inspiration from the question.

    This team has heart.

    Love the tweet.

    Valid points. Now I didn't say it was smart, but think with your heart after conference losses and it's easy to jump to UL not making the tourney.

    While it wasn't technically a conference series, they lost at home to South Al too. It was not true in the standings, but from a fan point of view the Cajuns were 4-8 against their peers and were 0-4 in series. It's not an unreasonable conclusion to think their chances of making the post season were in jeopardy at that point because they flat out couldn't finish in the weekends.

    I NEVER thought we'd miss the conference tournament. That doesn't make me better than anyone. That simply shows some of us saw this team as what it could be.
    I have always wondered what my wife saw in me.

    Thanks for answering that question for me today.
