Now a team in the 10-15 range each year and this year will go even firthur south.

Looking at the 2012 upcoming year I see no cause for optimism.

It;s time for Center to go. We have regressed heavily. I warned back then not to recruit Ben Chen. i know he was a Texas boy but I saw his results. he loses to mediocre players all the time. got double bagaled by Blake Davis last year. Sitaram has been a bust. Olesen is ok but a plyer than should be playign for Texas Tech not Texas.

Meanwhile A&M, baylor get better and now Oklahoma is much better than us. We are the 4th best team in out conference now.
I'm a little surprised that there are only 8 guys on the roster right now, but I heard someone is coming in after the semester break. Did Mladenov turn pro or just leave the program, I think they were hoping he would be another Kutrovsky but it didn't happen I guess. Losing Andersen definitely hurt, especially when you lose Corrie and Damico at the same time. Center is s good coach, he gets the job done.
