I just wanted to post a quick message to brighten everyones day. I took a look at some of the various websites and found these current numbers for our beloved Cards:
UofL: Record 24-5/Pomeroy 3/ SoS 11/ BPI 2/ RPI5
Mix this with the fact that we are only 1 of 4 teams without a double digit loss in the top 10 (IU/Zaga/Kansas) and we do not have that signature awful loss (looking at you Kansas/Duke/Michigan/Miami/GTown/Florida)and I am a happy fan. Take another look at our losses:
-Duke on a neutral court and 22 hours to prepare WITHOUT Dieng
-2 pt loss to then #6 Cuse in a game we literally gave them three times.
-@ Nova, a tough place to play. Easily our worst loss. But NOT TCU/Penn St/USF..etc
-GTown by 2, Now #7 GTown who is beating EVERYONE.
-ND in 17 OT's where the basketball Gods willed ND to a win.
Seeing as much parody there is in conference play, and that we seem to be peaking at the right time with bench players picking it up...I'm feeling good about our chances here.
Anyway, thought I would share my Sunday "Hey, this is turning out pretty good" news with everyone. Go Cards!
