I think that everyone who frequents this site knows that there are generally two points of view on the TSSF; we are lucky to be the team that we are and should cherish it, OR we have seen the potential our teams have had over the years and want us to take the next step. Regardless of what point of view you have, I think that many of us agree that this team tends to play far below its potential. Sitting at the Arizona game during half time, I know that I wasn't the only one thinking "ok, how close are we going to let them get in the second half?" Its expected that no team can keep up that momentum we had going, but at that point, most elite teams would be able to easily put away another team after building that kind of lead. I would like to know everyone's thoughts on why we have been unable to do that over the years.
Personally, I believe that we are horrible at adjusting to games as they are being played. Its obvious how bad we are at it when you look at how other teams like Arizona, Illinois, and Mich St are so good at it. What is it about this program that almost always leaves so many of us feeling frustrated throughout the season after bad losses and lucky wins?
