There aren't enough words to discribe how bad the Bluejays are right now. This was a year that was suppose to be up and down but the one thing that you can't ever forgive is lack of effort and energy. For back to back road games, CU hasn't been out-everything'd by their opponent. Today is Bradley HAMMERING the Jays in every area! Last game it was Evansville making more plays than the Jays. It's pretty sickening to watch this team right now. NOTHING positive to build on.
We are talking about some pretty serious records being in jeopardy all of a sudden. The Jays have gone to the postseason for 10 straight years. They have won 20 games for 9 straight years. They have won 10 Valley games 11 straight years. ALL ARE NOW IN QUESTION!
17-8. 8-7. The schedule the rest of the way is Vs. Missouri St. @ Oral Roberts, @ Illinois St., Vs. Bradley. 2-2 is possible but no guarantee. That would make the first game of the Valley tourney a must win to keep the 20 win streak alive.
Plus, with the NIT now allowing the champions of leagues that don't make the NCAA to auto qualify - it becomes much harder to make the field of 32 for the NIT. The Jays will need to finish no lower that 4th in the Valley in my opinion to get in. Right now, the sit in 4th place but with a ton of teams right around them. The Jays could finish as low as 7th if they aren't careful!!! And do you still believe in Dana's ability to coach in St. Louis? I do. But this team is so inconsistent you can't believe in them to win 3 games in a row in 3 days.
There is still time....but not much time. If the M.O. holds true - the Jays should win their remaining 4 games....but it sure doesn't look like that is possible right now.
