You just have no what your team will do in tournaments like that. Two losses hurts, and guessing drops them out of the Top 25.

What really matters is what you do in Big 12 play. So if the ladies re-group, and play hard in the Big 12 and win, then come tourney time, rewards will come/

Time to get rid of Bonnie, instead of giving her a raise every years.

Yes, we have a team picked to finish 2nd in the Big 12, so clearly it is time the coach?

Dope springs eternal on the LJW comments.
