    I blame Rick Barnes.

    I got excited a few minutes ago. I saw over a dozen new replies since the non-conf. schedule was released on here and thought, "Cool, people are already breaking down the teams on our slate and bringing some analysis on the schedule and how it'll all shake out next year." So I clicked in straight away to start reading the breakdowns.

    Yeah, no...

    Just a suggestion, to be taken with a large grain of salt, but it is offered sincerely: you know you're going to have rough patches, so when things are going well, why not make the extra effort to not react so strongly to pushback? Build goodwill. Bank it -- you will get to use it later, like a camel banks whatever it is they bank in their humps. (Weird metaphor.) A lot of people here admire your zeal, your fanaticism, and your dedication, so why not accept that and try to nurture those things when you can so that when $#@! goes south the lows (around here) aren't so bad?

    I may regret posting this.

I think we stand a better chance of having a stronger record against a similar RPI, although I admit I haven't dug into the numbers.
    That's fair. I honestly don't know much about the scheduling process. I figured the coaches would have input and then the athletic department would be the ones that work out logistics.

    As for RPI, I'm not worried. The Big 12 will help there. Also, as I posted above there doesn't seem like many RPI 200+ teams on the schedule which have hurt Texas in the past.

    BHAHAHAHA you've been Derka'd! along with this thread.

    Seriously when is the first loss?

    Notre Dame

    or can the team make it to December against Michigan?

    Well, we'll be playing Notre Dame in New York which is essentially a home game for them (they were 24-12 in a very salty ACC with a 31RPI), and @ Michigan who was 23-13 with a 57RPI . And finally @ Georgia who 20-14 with a 62RPI. I'd say we lose at least 1 of those road games against some solid opponents, two at the most. Our usual RPI boost from SoS won't be so generous this year, so 11-2 in non-conf. play is imperative, if not 12-1.

    FYI: Georgia brings back 3/5 starters, Notre Dame 3/5 starters, and Michigan 4/5 starters.

    But I'm so very very sorry for bringing up Rick Barnes out of absolutely nowhere, just totally out of left field. You know me, always going out of my way to talk about that guy. I mean what are the odds that the guy who coached here for 18 years would ever be genetically brought up in a UT basketball forum?

    Jesus $#@!ing Christ
    Yeah basketball is the one team sport where I expect coaches to have full autonomy in scheduling. I'm hoping this bit of down scheduling is a 1-time or infrequent thing due to how young we are.

    So far people seem to think we'll be around 10-3 going into conference play.

    I take it Texas and Michigan have a H&H going?

    I think it's a good schedule, giving Smart a punchers chance to further establish his footprint on the program and not having to deal with the bull$#@! schedule he was dealt with last season.

    Might have to look into the Brooklyn games.

    Yep, Michigan coming back here in December of 2017. Brooklyn deal looks fun as $#@!. We went to a few Legends Classics years ago. Weather is decent, you can stick around for Thanksgiving festivities in NYC. Great field in Colorado, Northwestern, and Notre Dame. All respectable opponents but all beatable. None of their fanbases are belligerent $#@!s. And Monday game being at 9:30p-EST, you can get in a full day or New York, then a great dinner, then still take in the game. Tuesday games are kinda weird, I guess for holiday travel TV purposes.

    Let's talk about the 2016-17 Longhorn basketball team

    Show started. Every time I remember that Darrin Horn is one of our assistants I just shake my head at how fortunate we are. You have to think that as long as Shaka has continued success at Texas that Horn's name will be coming up for head coaching jobs in the next few years. I really like our staff.

    The juxtaposition of James Banks's primal screams followed by Jarrett Allen's low-key, monotone voice is too funny.

    Everyone is gushing over Jarrett Allen. They showed a clip of Shaq dunking all over Allen in the beginning, but Shaq probably gushed over Allen's size/talent more than anyone. He's certainly a special athlete.

    James Banks: "What was the highlight of last year?"

    Tevin Mack: "You already know that, I don't know why you would even ask that question."

    Kerwin Roach: "The number one moment was when we beat North Carolina."

    JB to Andrew Jones: "Drew, did the outcome of that game have anything to do with your commitment to Texas?"

    Looking forward to the UTA rematch. If healthy they should give Texas a run. Good opportunity to replay Roach posterizing Bilbao again though.

    Not all that different than what Rick Barnes used to say, although the delivery was probably a bit more palatable. (Personally, I don't have a problem with it from either guy.)

    It's got to be good for recruiting. And from the looks of it, Shaka and staff know how to recruit. Which reminds me, something that sort of caught me off guard from the show last night was how aware the guys were as to *why* Jai Lucas got promoted, and that everyone was so open about it as to put it on the show. M

    For those who didn't see, the show mentioned Jai Lucas becoming an assistant, and then it cut to one of our players saying, "that name holds a lot of clout in recruiting; in Dallas, in Houston, everywhere." I thought that was interesting.

    I imagine that after Darrin Horn or David Cason get an HC job Shaka will promote Mike Morrell back to a full assistant role. I'm excited about this roster, but a bit wary due to how young we are. Roach, Mack, and Davis are going to have to hit the ground running to start and allow the freshmen to adapt to D1 basketball.

    I really hope so. It really sucks for a young coach like Coach Morrell to be demoted for a guy even younger than he is. This, after getting a pretty huge promotion less than a year prior to the demotion. Gotta be tough on him. Hope he gets his spot back as soon as he can. He's really well liked by his players as well, which sucks for both parties. Last year he had his own group of guys (I want to say he had the guards), and now he's lost that.

    My guess at the starting lineup today:

    Jones
    Roach
    Davis
    Shaq
    Allen

  • #287
    Before watching this I was a little worried about the youth of the team, but I like this team more and more, the more I see of them. Definite athletic upgrade compared to last year overall. Very curious to see what Jones will do at the point. We haven't had a guy that skilled in a while.

    Jones is going to be the fan favorite this year. Such an exciting player in the open floor, and when he and Roach get on the break- watch out.

    I really don't think we're gonna see scorers quite like BMW, but they will definitely be Runnin'. I'm excited about the defense; Shaka did well last year with the pieces he had, but it didn't always look exactly like what he was trying to do at VCU. I will be stunned, though, if Texas isn't at or near the top in virtually every ball-hawk defensive category next year, esp. blocks and steals.

    it's been a couple years since I've done more than one or two games a season. What's the parking like now with Dell Med Center up and running?

    Roach
    Jones
    Yancy
    Allen

    I could see this being the starting lineup but with Shaq and Banks getting equal minutes. This lineup definitely runs better, but it seems clear that Shaq has a place in the rotation as well.

    Damn, looking at it more you're probably right. That's so much height, length, athleticism, and defense. Shaka is building one of his Havoc teams but with even more highly ranked recruits. We are going to be fun to watch for a long time.

    I loved watching Barnes's tough teams, and I loved the way he rebounded, blocked, defended, and had a reputation as the toughest team in the conference, but I grew up watching the BMW Runnin' Horns, and this squad looks a lot like a modern version of those rosters. I can't wait to see how this team grows over the next two seasons. I think we're a scary tourney team this year and a final 4 contender in 2018.

    Nothing against Barnes & Brown, but to me it says something that our current basketball and football coaches are in fantastic shape for their age and in some areas can compete with elite D1 athletes. Loved watching Shaka tell the team he was gonna make it close to the top of their 3rd workout chart. I don't think anyone figured differently.

    It's seriously badass. Both guys are just impressive people, and their physical abilities are certainly a part of that. Shaka has to have made quite the impression on the uncommitted guys playing for him in the FIBA games.

    This team needs shooters. I think that if Young produces as a scorer off the bench then this team can be really good

    Davis, Isom, and Young are knock-down shooters, plus Kerwin and Jones will be see viable shooters who have hot nights. We actually have a pretty decent among of shooting, not to mention Roach and Jones's all-around scoring ability and athleticism.

    I watched it and drank up all the koolaid. I spoke with a couple of people at St. Stephens and they were not impressed with Allens effort but I think Shaka is the exact coach to change that effort. You have to think that the Team USA time has helped the fro bros grow and will help this team tremendously.

    Damn this team is going to fun to watch this season. Love how it seems ALL the players get along well with one another; definitely a bit different than most of our squads the last 5 years or so.
