We are now at an early defining point in this season.
Talent is not the issue with our team.
Mental toughness is.

It is now up to Jeff to instill the attitude necessary play at our potential each night. He has his work cut out for him.

I believe we will know how this year will turn out by the Kent Game @ Home on 1/16.

Maybe you could volunteer your expertise to come in and fix the issues. Should be easy for an expert like you.

Despite my initial opinions on Boals from prior to coming to OU, we got the right guy in here. The talent is there, schematically we're young and stupid. For all of you here we're going to make a ton of mistakes, but at the end of the day this team is going to do some wondrous things. Keep the faith, for we have the guard play in a deep conference to figure it out (FIO).

Young as in playing together because certainly not young in experience - three starters returning from last year plus a JMU starter and two guys that played significant minutes in over 20 games last year.

Based on this teams last three games it's safe to say that they lack mental toughness.

So should they still consider scheduling Kansas or Kentucky? Maybe for a home and home?

I think they are young. Yes, they return a lot of veteran parts, but after those 3-4 guys, they're very young. I feel like this group will be trending in the right direction by mid/late Feb. And this year, the only thing that matters is that trend. (in my opinion)
