    • Predictions – 11/14/20 Roundtable
      • Seth – So to finish this up, I think I’d like to end with a couple of questions: 1) Where do you think Texas Tech finishes in the Big 12 (and why if you have any thoughts about the top teams); and 2) What’s success for this year’s team?
      • Michael – 1) It’s tough for me to think Baylor won’t win the Big 12. They are returning four All Big 12 players. I’m attempting to temper my expectations a bit. Going into this season feels very similar to going into last season: a super-talented roster on paper that’s made of mostly new guys or players with little to no in-game minutes at Tech. I would expect a 4th place finish with a chance to make a run at 3rd.
        2) Again, I’m going to ease back a bit on any huge expectations. Tech finished 2-5 last season, including losing their last four in a row. I would love for them to finish strong in conference play (at least 2-2 in the last four games). Like Kyle, I would be happy to see this team compete in the Sweet 16. But , you know me, if they make it that far, I’ll forget I ever said this and want the whole dang tamale.
      • Spencer – 1) I’m high on this team until proven otherwise. I know team chemistry will be an important factor in how this team is successful down the stretch, but I fully expect this team to be at least a top 3 conference team.
        2) Success for me for this years team would look like not having any kind of sustained losing streak, especially with games you’re expecting to win. I don’t believe its unreasonable to expect this team win against the Oklahoma schools and lower in the standings, as well as just about all home games.
