Is perfection good?

Posted on: January 31, 2008 9:22 pm
If Memphis goes into the tuornament unbeaten, does that give them and advavtage or disadvantage in the tournament? Will the nerves target on their backs from being the only unbeaten become so big the it is harder for them to play with a clear minds. Before KU lost they had another team another team they were sharing the spotlight with, but now it is all on them. If they lose to Tenneessee or a team in C-USA will that act as a "wake up call" or relieve the pressure enough to make it easier on them deep in the tournament?

I don't think a loss or a near loss is always a terrible thing.  When a team tests you or goes the distance with you it's an opportunity to understand what weaknesses may have been exploited... but I think there is always a tremendous amount of pressure on a team playing in a one and done format.

Unbeaten is what every team strives for, regardless of the sport.  i believe if you are competative, that pursuit of perfection should fuel your competative juices and keep you revved up.  I agree that some teams use the excuse that a "loss" was good for them, but that is only because they have to say something when they lose.  In general, every team should strive for perfection all the time.  The winner is the team that comes the closest!

I'm not sure where I stand on this, I don't think they will get too nervous, but teams may be able to feed off playing an unbeaten. It's a hard task to pull off, and I don't think Memphis will run the table through the tournament, but they have a chance and they haven't shiwed any signs of slowing down.
