Testing your KU Mind



  • Ok here’s the rules. NO Google, and no handy dandy all facts about KU basketball. Off the top of your mind.

    Name the team KU scored the highest amount of points against. Do you know the amount of points KU scored against that team?



  • @DoubleDD I remember the 150 we put up against Kentucky. That’s all I can remember off the top of my head. I don’t know if that’s the most points we ever scored, but it was quite enjoyable. As far as who scored the most against us? I am not going to try to remember that one.



  • @KansasComet Without Google (Sheeeeeesh) - I’ve got to agree with you. I’m old enough, I remember listening to the game on radio (there was a TV blackout for some reason- figures) and I thought Max was going to have a heart attack calling that game. I believe the final was 150 - 95. As it should be.



  • @KansasComet This was the first thing that came to my mind as well. Pitino should have stopped pressing.



  • I remember when we beat Topeka YMCA 199-2.



  • @wissoxfan83 Is that the same Topeka YMCA team that Bill self said we couldn’t have beaten last season? (or was it the season before?)



  • @nuleafjhawk I think it was the season before James Naismith arrived on campus actually.



  • @DoubleDD

    Seriously? Without our kryptonite (Google)?

    Guess I meant to say ‘blue kryptonite’!

    Okay… okay… I cheated and Wiki’d ‘kryptonite’! You didn’t say we couldn’t use Wikipedia.

    I’m a complete oaf without reference capabilities.

    I’m going to say we beat the Salvation Army B-Team in 1906 with 243 points (against 41). The game came down to the wire… literally… a wire came in instructing all the players for the Salv to man a bell and hit local Macy stores for Santa donations. The game was tied 39-39 up to that point when the Army was left with only 3 players which consisted of the 69 yr old coach and two assistants, 13 and 14 years of age.

    This was one of the few games Naismith felt sure of a victory in the final moments of the game.

    “Pay Heed, All Who Enter: Beware of the Phog” came later… decades later. “Pay Heed, All Who Enter: Beware of the Bell” was the banner flown on the brand new Robinson Gymnasium (Jayhawk venue) in 1907 as a prank because of the massive beat down handed to the Salvation Army in the previous year. There were stories that the bells would return to avenge the loss so the warning on the building was aimed at future Kansas teams (and fans) not their opponents.

    This story is almost completely true!



  • @drgnslayr thanks for the chuckle. I sure do appreciate you and all the other posters here. Some of the other boards get quiet in the summer but you guys keep cranking out the smiles!!

    Do you remember Terry downtown Brown?

    link text



  • @DoubleDD yes, thanks for link! Did you notice the ref’s?



  • For you old KU fans that remember, and for you younger fans that never seen it. It’s poor quality, but he I know your going to watch it. Note watch them in order.

    I don’t remember the 80’s having such bad video?

    How was this game ever a blow out?

    Is the time clock moving really slow or is just me?

    UK has no inside game.

    Think about this UK was 10 of 14 from 3 land and was shooting around 60% from the field at this point, and was still down in the game? (Beware of the Phog)

    Did you see that Mark R dunk? Downtown Terry Brown heating up.

    Pitino-- Hey Refs were Kentucky

    Refs-- Hey your in the Phog Baby.

    How in the hell did KU score 150 in this game? We shall see.

    Roy ball at it’s best. I wander if Roy would trade his two Championships to have never left KU. I bet it’s crossed his mind.

    It’s a beat down.

    Pitino–Roy we are Kentucky.

    Roy–I know you are but I can’t explain it other than to say your in Phog baby.

    I hoped you enjoyed my KU brethren. Comment if you watched.



  • @DoubleDD really cool! Thanks!



  • I wonder if any of these guys were going to class under Roy?



  • @DoubleDD Thank you so much! I listened to the game on the radio but have never seen any video.

    I’m ready to roll now - tip it up!



  • Roy before the pressures of the Lawrence hoops microscope turned his hair gray, or maybe it happened after he went to UNC?



  • Watched it… Loved it! Reminded me that I have the BMA Classic poster from that year when Roy, Pritchard, Calloway, Gueldner, etc were decked out in western gear. They were a great team!

    q: whatever happened to Pekka?



  • This is the reason why most of the big boys don’t like to book home-and-home series.



  • @drgnslayr

    I really believe Calipari does not want to lose at home so he wants to schedule all the big games at big venues away from Rupp, it also brings in more money.
