Building On a Near Win
Baylor has lost to UT 19th straight times. How many times do you need to lose to a team to learn that you don't want to lose to them again in the future? Why is it that the B's players need to learn from losing, while other young teams learn from winning? Florida won it all last year with 4 starting sophomores. UT, the team we need to learn about beating, had four freshmen and a sophomore starting. In the current landscape of college basketball, Baylor isn't too young to be successful, in fact the best programs consistently lose their best players after a year or two. Their success or lack thereof has nothing to do with their age. More than likely all our starters next season will be at least halfway through their college career. Drew can no longer mention age having anything to do with a win or loss. If he persists with this argument we will be forced to say he was and continues to be too young to be a successful Big 12 head coach.
