Everything I have to say about the Dawgs this morning would be repetitive. What more can be said about such a disappointing weekend?
I’m certainly not giving up — not with the team only 2 1/2 games back in such an inconsistent league. But, I’ve leveled all of the criticisms I have for right now, and there’s officially nothing the Huskies can do over this four-game homestand to convince me they’re capable of doing anything at all outside of Hec Ed.
February 11th at Cal is the next time my mind will be open to the idea that the Huskies can possibly win a game on the road. Until then, I’m guessing we’ll go 6-5 the rest of the way, lose our first game in the Pac-10 Tournament (since it’s not in our building) and hope on March 14th that the NIT or CBI comes calling.
I am, however, excited to see what Coach has to say during his press conference later today. Will there be a plan to change the team’s fortunes? A change in the lineup or on-court strategy? Looking forward to hearing what Coach has in mind.
For me, this was the weekend when I started to come to terms with the fact that March Madness might be pretty quiet around our way.
I really do enjoy having someone to root for in the Tournament, and it got me wondering, how do other diehard Dawg fans tend to root if the Huskies don’t make the Tournament, or after they’ve been eliminated.
Me? I’d root Pac-10 all the way, since I’m so much more familiar with the teams in our league than the rest of the country. And I’d probably pull for the (few) New York teams that make the Tourney now and then: St. John’s, Manhattan, Binghamton.
