Dang... getting some real respect all of a sudden and will most likely have 90 percent of the team back next year. Good time to be an Aggie!!

I hate when they predict us as a sleeper.

I don't hate I love it! I don't expect us to win more than one game but this team is capable of what this article says. I think we will will handle Washington but one win could light a huge for under this team.

One big difference between now and when we played ASU, BYU and Houston is confidence and confidence is going to make us dangerous against other teams. I know for a fact when we played said teams we had not realized just how good we could actually be, none of us had. The way I see it, the turning point was Nevada (maybe even SDSU). After we beat them it was as if a light clicked on in their heads and they came to the realization that they belonged.

Another big difference from those early losses to now is that we have a different starting point guard.

And we have a kid at center that had experience playing with foul trouble and is acclimating better to American officiating.

The article has many nice things to say about our team. I am a little concerned about Sam's ability to score at a high clip with the kid from Washington. He is a defensive beast. I am very intrigued by that matchup.

I'd be worried if they played man, but with them playing zone... just put Miller in the zone of the big-time defender and Sam can score everywhere else. What good is the best on-ball defender in the world if he plays zone?

How have we played against the zone this year? Have we faced any heavy-zone teams?
