KU Basketball News
@Texas-Hawk-10 Like your list and your reasoning, but UCLA is the most exceptional exception in basketball history. If the program were slightly better in the 21st century there would be much less talk of "second tier".
Are doing the game in Austin on Saturday. I was kind of surprised that ESPN would have them do it. This should be interesting.
By the way, Rob Dauster’s Colloege Basketball Talks weekly podcast had a guy on today who used to work for ESPN. He is convinced by the way the reporter kind of hemmed and spelled her way through “sucked” that she was, let’s say, presenting alternate facts so as to not upset the bigwigs at Disney.
Perhaps the word was said but more as a request or perhaps a demand? The imagination can run amok with the various expressions that might have been used. Remember the football scene in the movie MAS*H (1970) where our hero docs concoct a scheme to provoke the big guy who is just devastating them into chasing one of their little guys all over the field so he is ejected?

@justanotherfan Idk that I agree with that. You may put a ceiling but you are also building a floor. Once you build the floor then you can reach here and there. But you don’t want to go back to being a laughing stock. I’d be happy to be a 5-8 win team every single season. Where at least I feel like we could win any given weekend. Reaching for the stars is what got us in this mess in the first place. Competing for recruits against UT, OU, Nebraska, Baylor, TCU, LSU, etc. is not going to be something we do well. But if we build a program and stick to it for an extended period of time maybe then we can earn some respect. And turn that respect into some additional recruits. Lets become the best football program in our own state before we start trying to recruit with the big boys out of state. And start dominating the in state recruiting battle.
To me, that would be a big step. We need to be the team landing Jordy Nelson’s and Tyler Locketts. (KU and KState were the only two seriously interested in both of these guys). That alone is a major step forward from where we are.

Your board, your rules. I am happy to have a platform where I can interact with fellow Jayhawk fans…tags or no tags.
