TCU Game

Postby olsingledigit » Mon Dec 16, 2019 12:59 pm

Per ESPN+ we are currently given a 38.1% chance to win that game.

Important OOC game. Can't really depend on Mizzou or Uc games being quality wins this year, plus they're at home.

let's just beat WCU first before we worry about what the heck kind of "win % probability" the 4-letter network gives us vs TCU, which means nothing.

Agreed. One of the hazards of playing a horrendous OOC schedule. I would bet Jack. St's Net rankings are in the bottom 25 in the country. That was a home game, but even a win against a quad 37 team does nothing for a team's resume. Road wins against quality opponents is a key metric the committee looks at, unfortunately for X this year.

i think the BE will give us plenty of chances for quality road wins.

On to TCU. This would be a great game to win for many reasons. Let’s hope Naji is well enough to make the trip.

Please, please, please Coach Steele, do not have Naji with the ball up top with a solid lead. He is a turnover machine in those situations. He is not a PG or a SG.

ESPN+ needs to recalibrate. Great win and dominated the game. KyKy nice lift, Freemantle a nice 3. Q another solid game and great 11 assists which is a great number even in (the quiet one) AH book. Merry Christmas Xavier fans and now on to the Big East
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

This was a good win because it was a road win and because we were dogs; but why can't this team put a game away? When are we going to see them win going away? This is becoming a bit frustrating. I probable should not be complaining , but WHEW!!
