Wow this makes Texas ball look terrible.
TSU vs PVU for a tourney bid is pretty cool. I will be pulling for TSU. A healthy TSU is a live dog as a #16. They beat Baylor and Oregon this year.
Damn. No wonder the east coast thinks there’s no b-ball here.
It’s really striking how bad the big-name colleges outside of UH did this year. It took me a bit to realize how bad the big picture was.
It hasn’t been good in awhile. Usually, there’s one or two Texas schools that do decently in the postseason, but the rest are also rans.
The only team is Texas that has ever done anything in basketball is UH.
I’d say UTEP (or Western Texas) had some success, but not much outside of that.
It is somewhat surreal how good the Coogs have become. We have a realistic shot at a final four and a legitimate shot at a national championship.
Think about that for a second. It has been 35 years since we could say that. Ronald Reagan was president and the Soviet Union was the evil empire. I don’t think Apollo Creed had been killed in the ring yet.
Both Houston schools will be in…go TSU and UH. Boys from the Tre…Thirdward proud!
Houston was still “Oil capital of the World”…ET was one of the most pooular movies of all time…
And he still posts on Coogfans…LOL…
Russia is now the evil empire. So it’s the same, just had some States secede.
Yep, the last time we were this good we were worried about nuclear winter now we are worried about global warming.
eATMe won their first game in SEC tourney
The Iron Sheik was still in the middle of his “Convenience Store Destruction Tour”
The original Van Halen was still playing together.
PV 41 TSU 35 still in first half…
You could still go goose hunting in Katy.
Those were the days. Take your kill to the pickers over by the train tracks, drink cold beer while their cast iron pot scalded the birds. Lots of fun.
