RPI WATCH: 3/2/2010

New, 1 comment

All I will say about Texas is that it at least avoided what would have been a truly epic and embarrassing Senior Day loss.

I suppose Oklahoma is the only team, at this point, that you can sleepwalk against for 25 minutes and still beat them handily. Two more losses, and this miserable excuse for a season finally will be over in Norman. The subsequent off-season promises to be very interesting.

In other news, poor Arkansas-Pine Bluff was so close, and yet so far, to breaking even. Maybe they'll get there in the SWAC Tournament... We're rootin' for ya, Golden Lions!
