I wish Memphis was having a year where we can both be ranked and people could legitimately ask "what's wrong." That'd be sweet.

RE: What's wrong with Wichita State Basketball?
Any chance we could shelve the silly comments about the Shockers getting woke in a vastly superior conference for just one single thread? Everybody on the planet save for a few AAC homers and self-deprecating Shocker posters who are trolling me, know that our team isn't playing up to snuff lately.

Anybody have any honest critiques or unique observations regarding what the Shox need to improve upon? I guess you would have to have seen us play a few games as our normal selves to be able to make an educated contribution. If you only saw us play the SMU and UH games you would think our team is made of wet paper bags. But I can assure you, the real Shockers dictate physicality, they are not dictated to.

Comments I would prefer hearing sound like the following - "Man, I saw the Shockers in the NCAA tournament _ _ _ _ year playing against _ _ _ _ and they were just relentless. It got to the point where the opposing team was afraid to even dribble the ball. On one play their 5-star PG appeared to just throw it out of bounds in a sign of protest as all his teammates were covered. It really seemed like it was 8 vs. 5 on the floor at times!

Thanks in advance!

Wow! I spoke too soon. I figured by the time I had written that post the thread would have been inundated by inane comments about the Shockers learning a lesson but instead it's been rather humorous and pleasant. Have all the insecure posters been banned?

Don't worry.

This.

Anybody thinking we were gonna go undefeated in this league was going to get a big dose of reality.

I mean...I said 5 losses and got accosted.

And rightfully so. That's before we became exclusive.

Last year's Shockers go 16-2 in the same AAC and are a legitimate title contender. This year's Shockers are gonna lose 6+ games and might get boat raced in the first round or make the Sweet 16 depending on the matchup. The good news is that it's still possible to figure out how to become last year's Shockers.

They're in a conference where they have to show up pretty much every night, that's what.
