Just checked and not terribly ugly. Some whiny hand wringers calling for a better coach but more of put-it-behind-us stuff like this:
"▼bad, rough loss
but i’d say teams like uva or kansas blowing double digit leads is worse.
just put this in the rear view mirror and learn from it
"▼Arizona has the worst fans in the country???
Really Greg Last time I checked McKale has been sold out forever and Arizona has not made a final four since 2001. Literally Arizona has some of the best fans in the country. If this was Duke, Kentucky, UNC, or Kansas and they just lost like that, there fan base would be saying the exact same things as many are saying. Actually probably 10 times worse. That was not a bad game, it was an AWFUL AWFUL game…and I bet you McKale will be full on Wendesday still.
Wooden got 7 of them, The streak was achieved while in 3 different conferences and under 3 different coaches. Offcially, Coahc Self already has the record as a coach with 12 and Mark Few is second with 11. Here is a breakdown on the UCLA run…
Conference(s): Athletic Association of Western Universities, Pac-8, Pac-10
Record: 360-30 (171-15 in conference)
Coaches: John Wooden, Gene Bartow, Gary Cunningham
AP first-team All-Americans: Kareem Abdul-Jabaar (1967, 1968, 1969), Sidney Wicks, Jamaal Wilkes, Bill Walton (1972, 1973, 1974), Dave Meyers, Marques Johnson and Dave Greenwood (1978, 1979).
UCLA’s talent during that run was head and shoulders above everybody else. Coach Self had to replace entire starting lineups and beat powerful teams that include the likes of LaMarcus Aldridge, D.J.Augustine, Damion James, Kevin Durant, Tristan Thompson, PJ Tucker, Buddy Hield, Blake Griffin. Michael Beasley, Bill Walker just to name a few…
I loved watching old man Lucas show up those freshmen. It’s amazing what you can do with a little experience. UK has the talent to beat anyone, but KU has the experience. Not to mention the experience of beating the pre-season top 2 teams!
@JayhawkRock78 Surely Perry is back for his Sr year, but Tuesday could be the last one for KO. Don’t think he’s ready for the show IMO. Don’t even consider Selden. Cliff? An enigma. Mick even got minutes today. Am weary of the OADs. Too old school I guess. Our ceiling maybe the S 16 this year so getting number 11 is huge to me. BG 12 tournament would be good too. Might nail down a 2 seed. Rather not slip to 3.
He was an assistant coach in the NBA and moved to a front office job because of his health situation. I am afraid that the long NBA season and the huge egos in the League are more than he needs health-wise. He has sweet deal at ISU and I don’t see him leaving any time soon.
@RedRooster it’s crazy that a team can ranked with another ranked team in town can get that low of attendance numbers. Makes me appreciate being a Jayhawk fan even more. Hell we even pack the house for exhibition games.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
