Really? Its not about the year of probation its about bridging the gap at the end of a 3 year probation and thereafter. SMU was in the Tournament in the year of probation-big deal-the effect of 3 year probations hit you especially in Years 3-4 and even 5. SMU in Year 2 was on track for NCAA until Foster and then Shake's injuries

When momentum starts rolling downhill in recruiting-WATCH OUT.

Louisville and Maryland are in their last months of probation terms right now and are both competing for a final four this year.

It's not like it has not been done before - in fact SMU recently did it themselves.

SMU was on probation 2011-2013 for committing major violations.

One year later we SHOULD have been in the NCAA tournament when we were snubbed. Nonetheless, we proceeded to go 109-27 in the following 4 seasons with two tournament appearances and an NIT final.

All it took was the right coach.

Don't worry. It won't be long until the Chad quotes are replaced with stuff about Kendric Davis.

I’m now looking forward to Saturday night. I expect a decent crowd. We might get a little spark of Moody Magic going.

Everyone remain calm....If we win our next 8 games, we have a shot at the NCAA tournament.

If we win 7 of 8, we have a shot at hosting an NIT game.

Yay! :roll:

I suppose we can expect East to complain that any other coach would have guided this SMU team to an easy double figure win against Houston tonight. Has to be a tough pill for him to swallow but we all know the haters will be back soon

No, you will not see East until SMU loses, he never comes out on wins.

I think he is too busy cheering on Mays to realize SMU won. He'll be back when we lose our next game though.

Funny. Most here will look to the Temple and ECU games as “ shoulda won” games. But a few will still view this weeks two W’s as “shoulda losts.” As much as I would love to see us have better coaching.... no way.

Great job to the entire team...even Duncs!

I think we should definitely have won the ECU game and given we were crushing Temple should have won that one too. The UConn game was a must win and the Houston game was a pick'em that we got lucky with Bandoumel's miracle shot. At least we are still in contention so I'll take it.

Sure, but if we thought we were that good then the non-conference schedule would have been ripped even more. It has left us with win the conference or bust (tourney or regular season) for NCAAs.

Interesting that we're #67 in the NET rankings right now and 2-2 in Quad 1 games.
