It's where we should be. We're closer to 5 than to 7, and the team at 5 (Xavier) beat us earlier this year. All good.

Not just beat, destroyed. Perhaps the weakest #6 team in the history of rankings?

What's even more hilarious is how on earth we're still ranked. We're barely a top 40 team right now.

I see we've reached the stage in the tantrum where we are tearing everybody else down now.

I'm not there yet. I still have a grasp on objectivity, but it is tenuous.

You'd have to walk a mile in a Shocker's shoes to feel what we feel. A typical Shocker team (by typical I mean what we have been enjoying the last half decade) would have beaten the Temple team I watched on television the other day by 30. Yes, yes... I know Temple has beaten some solid teams at different points in the year. But the Temple team I watched the other evening would have been beaten into submission... similar to what we did to Houston at home.

We've shown flashes of our old self this year, but mostly it's been on and off, on and off, like a flickering light bulb nearing the end of its journey.

The vast majority in this conference have seen maybe half a dozen Shocker games over the years. Frankly, you all are not even qualified to speak on the issue of what the Shockers can and can't do. We KNOW what all of the AAC teams have done over the last half decade save for UConn... and that's nothing.

Just to be clear...a typical Wichita State team would be more like last year's team than this year's team, right?

Nothing screams nouveau riche like justifying your place at the big boy table based upon a "half decade", or five whole years.

Sorta like when Wichita first got into this league a Shocker poster made the statement that AAC teams had never seen a coach like Marshall (they've seen Huggins, Brown, Cronin, Calhoun, Calipari, etc.), nor have they ever seen an arena like Koch. Many teams have been there and done that. Good coaches, good basketball, or good arenas didn't spring into existence when Wichita became a good team 5 years ago.

You discredit your team when you make statements like the above. Maybe you're just a clever Creighton fan mocking the Wichita fanbase?

I was hoping Houston would get more than 3 votes. At least close enough so they maybe, perhaps, possibly get ranked at some point late in the season provided they go on a run.

Beating everyone but Memphis of course.

Reading this post gets to the crux of the problem. You are not used to quality basketball. You do not see the nuances between AAC and Mvc athletes. When Rose was elevating over you Thursday, you harken back to the Mvc set shot shooter. I bet you believe that George Miken and the Minneapolis Lakers would beat the contemporary LA Lakers. Well good luck, you have been exposed.

Go check Michigan’s states terrible resume.

UC has 4 tier 1 wins vs MSU’s 2
UC has 7 tier 2 wins vs MSU’s 4

We have 11 tier 1&2 wins to their 6.

Even worse for them , they only have 1 tier 1 chance left and it’s against Purdue.

UC’s Next 3 of 4 games are to tier 1 opponents. And we have a 4th with WSU to end the year.

We can debate if Michigan state is better then us and I’m fine with that but their resume is god aweful. And they failed to protect home court this year already.
