    It would appear that the four teams directly in front of us (SIU, UNI, MSU, BU) have the toughest remaining schedules, with Bradley's probably the worst. To move into 6th place, and out of Thursday night, we need to pass three of them. It would be very difficult to pass them all, as inter-competition assures some wins for these teams. We play these teams 5 times, with 4 of those games at home, giving us a hand in our own fate.

    Who knows if this team is capable of getting this thing turned around, but if they are to have any shot at avoiding the play-in round, I think it has to start tonight.

    The first time I read this, I thought it said "a hand in our own face," and I thought, hell, we can't shoot without a hand in our face!

      Play-in

      As another poster elsewhere observed, considering the matchups, the play-in round -- specifically, the 8-9 pairing if Drake stays on top -- might not be the worst place to be, and might actually provide an easier path to the semifinals than some of the higher positions.

      Having said that, though, here's hoping that the Shocks do indeed get things turned around, starting tonight. I'm looking forward to next year -- a lot -- but I'd like to enjoy the rest of this season a little more along the way. After all, it's not exactly as if WSU gets a better draft choice by losing.

        It's gonna be hard to move up when we can't beat the teams directly above us in the standings.

          7 games in I never thought that in the last 12 months we would have had the following happen:


          1)Chris Brown transfer out
          2)Ryan Bradley transfer out
          3)Arbry Butler get his scholarship pulled...reinstated and then transfer in midseason
          4)Our head coach and all assistants move on
          5)Hire a new Coach (DING DING DING Only bight spot)
          6)Evan Baker decommit
          7)Denzel Bowles decommit and end up with our old coach
          8)Brandon Sampay decommit and end up at a rival MVC school
          9)Guy pass away
          10)Ejike Hart not make grades and never get here
          11)Lose walkon Derek Brown
          12)Lose walkon David King
          13)Ehimen Orupke never get here, at least yet
          14)Matt's career shortened by his 4th concussion
          15)Ramon's finger busted in 2 places
          16)Mantas blows out his knee (other knee this time)
          17)injuries to Bret Michael
          18)injuries to PJ
          19)Sickness with Gal

          I can't believe I omitted this so to make it an even 20

          20)Sean Ogirri-by far our best scorer-drops out and transfers


          There is no way these coaches and these kids deserve this...in any way shape or form.

            Yeah, Doc - it's unbelievable what this team and coaching staff have gone through this year. Best wishes for Mantas.

            BTW this is my first post and I am a dummy with this computer stuff, so I hope I did this correctly. I've sure enjoyed reading the posts you folks have put on Shockernet. Go Shox!

                      Maybe I'm missing something here, I dunno. I'm just referring to him tearing his ACL.

                        Shoxfan:


                        #16 says that Mantas blew out his knee

                        A part of his knee is the ACL.

                          That is what Doc means in item #16. Blowing out a knee is a euphemism for tearing an ACL or MCL.

                              Isn't that what it's called when you put a pet to "sleep?"
