Note to self: realistic expectations always make watching sports more enjoyable. Learn to enjoy the process, allow players who have never played at this level to develop.
Point taken. I'm really looking forward to the CBI this year!
I don't think you really believe BYU will be in the CBI this year. But just curious, what would be your minimum level of achievement for this BYU team to keep you out of the pissed off zone? For me personally, and in a different sport, I hit that with Gary Crowton. He just flat out made me angry. But my response was to mostly stop paying attention until he was replaced.
I'm not pissed or angry. Just disappointed. I'll post this again for what level of achievement I expect:
NIT early exit = Major disappointment, Rose on the HOT seat
NIT semi-finals = disappointing season
Making the NCAA tournament = Expectation
Win conference title and/or conference tourney = Exceeding expectations
Sweet 16 = Fantastic season
Two years in a row of not making the tournament will definitely rub me the wrong way. I will offer up that making a deep NIT run is almost as good as losing in the first round of the NCAA tournament. So, at least we did that last season. Right now this team feels like another NIT semi-finals team. Not bad enough to fire Rose, but definitely leaves something wanting for this basketball fan.
