Why I Am Not Worried - Part 3


Call me neurotic or paranoid, but as a forty+ year fan, I have seen my share of "can't miss" NCs evaporate. There are 3 experiences that keep me concerned - but in the end, just do not worry me about this team.

1) the 1984 Semifinal in Seattle vs GT - UK dominates 1H and then comes out and goes 1 for 9 (or something like that). Cold shooting could always rear its ugly head, but I have to believe we have too many scorers for the entire team to go blank

2) 2003 - Our road to NO is derailed by Dwayne Wade - Of course, the Boggins injury hurt and so far - knock on wood - we have avoided the injury bug. Even with an injury tonight, I do not believe one player will beat us - nor will losing one player cause us to lose. of course, i do not want to test my theory...

3) 2010 - WVA winning in the regional final due to hot shooting and a zone. Several things. one, i don't see us giving up that many 3's in a half. two, our freshmen this year seem more mature and not as likely to let the refs get to them (i still say we could have won had cousins, etal not complained about how they were being ridden like a rodeo horse) and we have some upperclassmen to settle the team down. Three, after 3 years of seeing all types of zones, I believe Cal knows what to do against each one of them - more importantly, Miller has been with Cal every step of the way. Of course a triangle and 2 could be a new look - but still, i believe we have too many weapons.

FT shooting, not being able to shoot in a dome, foul trouble, etc all could rear their head. But I am not worried - concerned perhaps in how the team responds, but not worried.

Thanks for listening/reading - now to try and get some work done (ha!)
