This loss changes nothing

Losing today changes nothing. We are on the right path. We are a tough out for every team on our schedule. We are on a mission. I have gone to games since I was a kid. This is the first time I'm making this prediction. Forget the bubble. We break the curse this year and win the SEC tournament and pop someone else's bubble. We are cutting down nets and going dancing.

Came here to ask this very question. They stunk it up bad today, really bad. But K St beating Baylor has to help our RPI. We can't have another one of these games like we had today though. Margin for error got A LOT smaller today.

Wish I could share your optimism but at this stage in the season giving up a 19 pt lead to a terrible team and losing changes a lot. This sets the team back on its mission.

A little dramatic. MSU is not a terrible team.

This has happened 4 or 5 times this year. They are young and it's what's expected of a young team. Set backs and this team shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence. We weren't supposed to be here at this point in the game. Be grateful somehow we are

Original poster is correct. The NCAA team Cuonzo had was 12-11 at this very time in the season with a high RPI and schedule. In my opinion, and it hasn't changed in two weeks, our number is 18 regular season wins to put us squarely on the bubble. 18 wins plus 2 in Nashville makes us 20-14 and a lock in my opinion. If we finish over 18 regular season wins we're in bottom line. We must go 5-3 or better in our last 8 with 5 of these being home games. This is very entirely possible. Today hurt yes, and yes the officials in both games in Mississippi were attrocious, but it did not ruin our chances. Our bubble has not burst.

And we were just as Attrocious on the court. Ole Ms beat us and we beat us at MSU. I am on the fence but maybe we can get in some way or the other. No more of these type games or we are looking in from the outside. JMHO

The way I took it was he wasn't happy with the officiating but didn't blame the loss on that. I believe he said you can't turn the ball over as many times as we did and miss that many free throws and expect to win the game.

Thanks. I'm sure he was disgusted as many of us were.

We can forget any post season tourney if our Senior leader doesn't show better leadership than he did today. Hubbs pulled another one of his " no show" games and I wish Barnes would sit him on the bench when he comes out and looks completely uninterested like he did today. He had been playing like an All SEC player the past couple of weeks .. Not sure what his problem was today.

Hubbs was drawing all sorts of attention from Mississippi State's defense and Bowden didn't step up, Turner didn't step up, and Williams was in foul trouble almost the entire game. You have nights like this when half of your rotation is freshmen.
