Before I go back to work
Missed following the game. Working getting ready for next two days.

Sounds like great win.

Let's keep things in perspective.

Without DB's emergence this season is completely different. Frankly, I did not think he had it in him. But so very happy for him and the rest.

Shayne is playing into a first team MAC player for THIS season.

But one ankle, one finger poke in the eye and everything changes.

Not a buzz kill.

Simply pointing out what I wrote before. I'm enjoying this as the rest are.
But for this to continue next year and beyond the small minded MAC West centric mentality has to go.

Nobody saw "this" Shayne coming. Many, self included knew Darius could be special but would he?

My point: You can't settle. Nobody knew that this would be as it is RIGHT NOW. You have to be IN POSITION at that moment to take advantage.

But if the attitude turns to: "And this shall be" then you can sched up and not be held hostage by the conference.

You set the tone and make yourself eligible in the mind of the decision makers that you merit the consideration. You dont recruit to win the West or even the MAC. You recruit to beat Gonzaga, the top MVC dog, Clemson, Iowa, Iowa State and Georgetown.

The MAC will take care of itself.

I wont apologize for how things are working out. You dont look a gift Bronco in the mouth. Enjoy.

But if you are going to hang your hat on the stars aligning every generation or two you need help.

we are a healthy team, and that has been a key! Last year we couldn't catch a break. Glad things are going our way!

You bet GBL, it sure is a mental thing, whether that is a winners mentality or a losers mentality. In other words, just winning the MAC West really is not enough.
It starts with that mentality though, that desire to destroy whatever team is in front of us at the moment-one game at a time. It also takes the horses to accomplish that goal. That mentality has to be a collective mentality is what I believe you have been alluding to lately.
I believe this team has that mindset in that they seem to be very unselfish, very coachable, and pull for each other. Against Kent, DB hit a huge 3 in the 2nd half off an inbounds, the smiles on our boys faces lit up the arena as they helped him to his feet for the bonus free throw.
That win at Miami, when we obviously didn't have our best stuff showed me a lot. Players stepped up late to pull out the win. Kent was a better team (than Miami) and we had to play well to stay with them, but when winning time came, someone stepped up.
David Brown, to me, has exemplified that combination of desire, toughness and talent to take us where we need to go.
