Strive for Five
- Aug 26, 2011
OT but I would like to commend you of your proper use of the phrase, “couldn’t care less.” Possibly the most misused phrase out there. I cringe every time I hear, “could care less.”Couldn’t agree more. Just like recruiting.....I couldn’t care less about rankings. Just take care of biz on the court.
You're touching the money. NEVER TOUCH THE MONEY.I gotta imagine we have a good chance to crack the top 25 Monday. A little national recognition would help with the committee seeding us imo. It’s easy to lose track when you’re trying to pick 68 teams out of 90 something possibilities.
Get us ranked Monday and then move up in the rankings after we win BET 😁
Ncaa's.Are you talking about BET or NCAAs? I was talking about NCAAs.
I stand to be corrected. Maybe I'm over here drinking too much ginger beer. Forgive my ignorance which is rareKemba's team and Carmelo's teams were both ranked and both #3 seeds.
Would you rather be in the top 25 heading into the Dance or after the Dance is completed? You only get to choose one.Finishing the regular season ranked in the top 25 is a huge accomplishment and a great recruiting tool. Of course we want to be ranked. I can't imagine thinking otherwise.
You have it mixed up but it’s all good. Shabazz team in ‘14 was a 7 seed and I wouldn’t say had “expectations”. Kemba’ team was actually ranked as high as 4th, we won Maui and was unbeaten in our OOC schedule. We were a 3 seed that year as wellWrong response. Shabazz and his crew had expectations. They were a 4th seed. The topic was talking about teams that won with no expectations. Kemba and Carmelo's teams were not ranked or seeded high
Yeah, but it's kind of a cool tough-guy thing to say you don't care.Only on the boneyard do we have fans arguing if we should be ranked. Of course we want to be ranked. Just like Nova is every year. It helps the program like it did for us in the past. People saying otherwise absolutely have no clue what they're talking about.
I see what youre saying but do you honestly, seriously being honest do you think there are 25 teams playing better basketball than this team? I want to be ranked and hopefully its a big jump in the 25. There has been too much doom and gloom around here the last 5 years and it seems many posters are still hungover from it and are afraid of any success because "we want to fly under the radar". Nonsense!!! THIS IS UCONN!!!! WE DONT FLY UNDER THE RADAR WE FLY AT THE HIGHEST ALTITUDE, LEAD THE FORMATION AND DROP BOMBS ON WHOEVER GETS IN THE WAY OR WE GET SHOT DOWN IN A BLAZE OF GLORY FIGHTING TILL THE END.Winning and playing real good now is huge not being ranked #25.
But hope some of you get your wish, I could care less I don’t need that to see how our Huskies are playing.
Thankfully for all of us Danny isn't recruiting middle aged dudes from the yard. I can assure you young kids look at rankings and the national presence of a team. Being ranked like Nova in a non power 5 and gaining that respect again is extremely important going forward.
I know. I admitted error. I was drinking the wrong stuff. LolYou have it mixed up but it’s all good. Shabazz team in ‘14 was a 7 seed and I wouldn’t say had “expectations”. Kemba’ team was actually ranked as high as 4th, we won Maui and was unbeaten in our OOC schedule. We were a 3 seed that year as well
I agree completely. Im also kind of a cool tough guy😎Thankfully for all of us Danny isn't recruiting middle aged dudes from the yard. I can assure you young kids look at rankings and the national presence of a team. Being ranked like Nova in a non power 5 and gaining that respect is extremely important going forward.
Thats fools gold. Do you think Uconn is "flying under the radar" when whichever top seed gets us in the bracket? You think Mark Few isnt going to notice our name at all in his bracket? You thin none of the other teams will notice us? Lol! I just get this weird picture in my head of Duane Johnson dressed very casually with shades on waiting in line to see one of his movies hoping nobody notices him in line😂🤣Wouldn't mind seeing a number next to our name next game but flying under the radar and being underestimated has its advantages also.
