I hope you're right about Tech beating Iowa, but isn't your opinion just a little bit biased?

Hate is always accurate. For example: “OU sucks.”

Hard to be too mad about this game. If Garza doesn't intentionally injure Jahmius Ramsey we probably win. We played about as bad a basketball game as you could

Too many Turnovers. Poor shooting. If it werent for the D and rebounding...Still, Im pretty cool with the fight. The claw back. 

The youngsters were definitely off their game under the spotlight for the first time. 

Iowa has a nice team, and they were pumped to play us. We better get use to it, because this is what we can expect every night.

Iowa lost to DePaul by 30 at home. What in the actual fuck?

We couldn't hit a 3, missed like a dozen layups and were shit from the FT line. Just one of those games and not especially surprising given the sheer number of true freshmen we are leaning on. Also, I'm not usually one to complain about the refs, but I've never seen so many illegal screens and non-called travels in a single college basketball game in my life.

Yeah, I never got mad during the game either.  It was just one of those nights in Vegas when you kept playing, but knew nothing was going to hit...

Iowa played physical basketball like what this young Tech team will experience in Big 12 play (and hopefully tournament play).  They hadn’t experienced physical D-1 play like that until last night. Part of the growing up process, and I hope they can learn from it because they will get a much much heavier dose of it in conference play. 

I think that had to impact their psyche and consequently their shooting, which was absolutely abysmal.

I was worried the increased spacing due to the backed up 3 point line would blow up Beard's defensive strategy and I'm seeing that happen in real time.

Tech tied it at 61 but it doesn't look like they have anything left in the tank to finish it off - which is odd because their depth is was got them back into it.

I will never, ever, ever understand why teams do that stupid shit like Creighton at the end of games. Such a fucking horrendous possession.

Nice learning experience for Tech in Vegas tonight. Not going to win many games shooting 4-24 from 3.

That's Shaka Smart's offensive philosophy, bruh.

Saying, "OU sucks," has nothing to do with hate (or any emotion). It's objective fact.

Tech only committed 7 turnovers. For regulation and OT. I saw effort that you normally dont see until March. The buy in from the players into Beard basketball is there. The numbers were there. But like someone else said. Shots did not fall.

Just glad football is over.

Yeah, last year was the best season in Tech’s history. This season, I want to see Beard mold these guys into a much, much younger team.  I don’t mind the quality opponents, as it will help later.

It didn’t necessarily ‘click’ for Owens or Mooney last year until January or so...

Lots of work to still put in.  Gonna be fun to watch...

Tech is about 2-3 years from being a perennial power. I say that because they have to build the old and young depth. Right now they are in a position where it is a rebuild (last year was thought to be one). More talent incoming for 2-3 years means you’ll have great upperclassmen and talented underclasses. Then you have great continuity.

That Luka Garza was a punk.  The whole Iowa team was pretty surly, but he was the worst

Tech’s culture/process is not built on that goal. But, i get exactly what you are stating and it may end up that way with this particular class of 7 freshmen.

But with transfers and egos and the wind blowing....who knows.

I think comparing Beard teams from year to year is going to be interesting for quite some time. This team has definitely bought in in the moneyball side of things...but now they also are getting opponents very best game.

Tech just needs to learn to play as a team.  Lots of talent, but needs maturity.  Not expecting much from basketball this season, but he future is bright.  After football being so bad ready for something positive.

Baylor vs Arizona tips at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, same time that the BXII FB CCG kicks off at Jerry World. So what do I get in the mail? 2 FREE tickets to the bball game. Two ranked teams and they're giving tickets away.

USC/TCU from Dickies Arena on ESPN2 has an embarrassing crowd. 

It's because they screwed us over ticket prices.  $150 courtside, $75 middle sections. $55 corners and lower sets behind the  basket, and $26 upper levels.
