Ok so after the gut checking / nut punching / mindnumbingly depressing / <insert your superlative description here> game we all went through as fans Saturday, I noticed a lot of people saying how happy they were that basketball season was just around the corner. Are we really that excited for the hoops season though? Or are we setting ourselves up to be disappointed again?
Last season was a magical season that none of us will forget any time soon. But we lost Tim and Trey to the NBA, are we really so sure that we are going to be able to match their level of output? Are we expecting a Final Four run again? Some people seem to be expecting us to win it all this season based on their comments, which I don't see happening (but I'll be more than happy if I'm wrong). I guess I just think that we're being way too hard on this football team by giving up on them halfway through the season, and I think some are getting way too optimistic about the basketball team's chances beyond the Sweet 16 (where I think they'll land) this year and are just setting themselves up for a rough winter.
Am I nuts? Overthinking it? Or am I right to sound a warning now?
