We have been going to NCAA tournaments for years. Came oh so close to knocking off MSU and SDSU. We have an amazing basketball program that I have loved watching going back to spring of 1989. Weir is continuing the proud tradition. I agree, win or lose, the future of hoops looks good. Just keep graduating players, winning conference championships, and knocking on that NCAA tourney door. Great first year for Coach Weir, no doubt about it.
28-5 is a fantastic record, and sets a high mark to beat.
I think tied into this success is another record this team set... one that will be impossible to beat, and can only be tied... their 1000 APR.
It's a cliche, but it really is too easy to forget the student part of student athlete, and I think part of the team's success is having a bunch of guys that can accomplish academic success at that level, and a program that enables them to do it.
Mid majors would kill to have our tradition. Just making it so often is an amazing accomplishment in itself. I'm sure if we get slaughtered today all the naysayers will come out and biitch and moan about our conference and whatever else cause they are miserable human beings but I just want to say thank you to Weir, his staff and his players for a historic an great Aggie basketball season!
