(This was after we lost Jontay)
Now it's looking like I was too optimistic. Obviously I didn't see the Mark Smith injury coming. JT being out obviously didn't help.

What were some of you expecting this year without Jontay? Were you seriously thinking we were going to win 20 games?

The freshmen and sophomores look like the best players on the team with room to grow. Our point guard is sitting out a year and we're adding size and athleticism next year before we even know about JUCO or grad transfers. We're adding by subtraction every year KA's players leave.

My question is why are you still watching, if you expected a tournament team? We could win a few more games and get to 13 or 14 wins but that's the ceiling. Why watch the team with an expectation of playing winning basketball against SEC competition, particularly if it's going to p**s you off every time?

At this point I'm hoping for no more injuries, a win in the SEC tournament so Rag will shut up about that, and to get this rebuild season over with. Then focus on getting 2 or 3 of the big fish in the 2020 class.

          Losing Geist and Puryear and replacing them with - kcnorthside KC - 2/12 09:28:48
          Puryear is not athletic enough for the current SEC - chuckaluck MU - 2/11 19:25:40
          Mizzou fan but the Porter buzz is gone.....nm - tigertix MU - 2/11 19:18:14

          Explain the "Porter Factor" to me. (nm) - longtimereader MU - 2/11 16:55:52
               RE: Explain the - MNTIGER MU - 2/11 17:20:24
                    Hiring Porter Sr is why we got the two boys and is why - alwaysright MU - 2/12 10:54:34
                         RE: Hiring Porter Sr is why we got the two boys and is why - MNTIGER MU - 2/12 12:22:56
                              yeah. So, as I noted. Porter was a factor, but not the - alwaysright MU - 2/12 16:28:19
                    So CM literally did nothing it was MPJ - MU-TULSA MU - 2/11 18:47:33
                         You don't read very well, do you? 3rd grade, or 4th? - MNTIGER MU - 2/11 21:35:15
                    Blake Harris probably wouldn’t have come here - FIJItiger MU - 2/11 17:48:35
                         It is a guarantee that Harris would not have come without - alwaysright MU - 2/12 10:50:21
          Vanleer could be doing Mitchell Smith type things - FIJItiger MU - 2/11 16:45:19
          Puryear is anything but solid at the moment - Mizzmi27 MU - 2/11 16:42:55
               Would this team be better without Puryear? - WildCard MU - 2/11 19:27:33
                    I think the team would be about the same without him. - kcnorthside KC - 2/12 09:25:06
                         definitely would be worse without him - wu-tangtiger MU - 2/12 09:39:02
                              I guess I just mean he doesn't move the needle much. - kcnorthside KC - 2/12 10:20:40
                                   Not an odd scenario. The point is Puryear, with all his - WildCard MU - 2/12 10:59:36
                                        And if there is no one on the roster who can replace - kcnorthside KC - 2/12 11:22:13
                                             Really need Jackson and at least 1 more player - wu-tangtiger MU - 2/12 11:30:04
                                                  I'd like to see if Santos' limitations have been mental - kcnorthside KC - 2/12 12:10:22
                                                       I think it’s both mental and physical - wu-tangtiger MU - 2/12 12:13:56
                                   More losses without him - wu-tangtiger MU - 2/12 10:25:26
                                        Yes, this. - WildCard MU - 2/12 10:56:21
     You also probably didn't expect Puryear to fall off the face - Mizzmi27 MU - 2/11 16:25:26
     I’m a Mizzou Tiger fan - WildCard MU - 2/11 16:14:38
          Same. - kcnorthside KC - 2/11 16:16:00
               i can see it. you watch b/c you want them to win. if you - TigerA MU - 2/11 16:20:09
                    Not caring that they lose and understanding why they lose - Cosmo MU - 2/11 16:46:21
     .500 with Jontay out - Da_Haze KC - 2/11 16:05:42
          I agree. With Smith in the lineup I think we'd have 2 more - kcnorthside KC - 2/11 16:13:17
               RE: I agree. With Smith in the lineup I think we'd have 2 more - zoutheman MU - 2/11 18:31:25
                    Here we go another Mark Smith hater (zoutheman) - ASecondChance MU - 2/11 21:34:40
     I threw my expectations out with the Jontay injury - wu-tangtiger MU - 2/11 15:50:38
