Two Reputed Nostradamus Predictions about KU

  • Nostradamus predicted that a KU coach would one day use the 3/4 court 2-2-1 zone press at least half the time, but he did not say his name would be Bill Self and he did not say which century it would be.

    Nostradamus predicted that a team in Lawrence, Kansas would play small ball during the Gregorian calendar years of 2014-2015, but he also said the team would wear sports bras.

  • @jaybate-1.0 JB, you been taking your meds? Just wondering 🙂

  • @wissoxfan83

    Now, wiss, I know you worry a LOT about board rats cribbing your nembutals down on the bayou, but I can assure you, if you go to your 7 day pill box, you will find every one of them in the exact place your care giver put them in.

    Feelin’ frisky and just wondering back at ya! 🙂

  • What I wonder is … How did Nostradamus know that I would be sitting here today reading KU Buckets while eating marshmellows covered with toasted coconut? What a guy!

  • @Careful-you At least you’re not sitting naked in a beanbag eating Cheetos.

    Are you?

  • Who says I’m not? Wait–Are you Nostradamus?

  • @Careful-you

    Nostradamus rules amidst emergent complexity. 🙂

  • @Careful-you

    “Nothing in the world can one imagine beforehand,not the least thing,everything is made up of so many unique particulars that cannot be forseen.” ― Nostradamus

  • Those unique particulars better keep their hands off my marshmellows!!

  • @Careful-you and Cheetos…

  • MMMMM Cheetos be good!

  • @Careful-you

    “Will the future bring your wisdom to me?

    Or will darkness rule the kingdom for all eternity?

    You will live in my heart…

    I will still remember even though we are apart.

    I will feel you there for me

    As I walk the road of life

    You help me fight for what is right

    I will honour thy name”

    ― Nostradamus

    (Didn’t know I was a poet too huh?)

  • @nuleafjhawk Stop it! You’re making me tear up.

    Seriously, that is pretty good. Don’t tell me if you didn’t write it. I don’t want to know.

    Can I send it to my wife?

    A little known fact is that Nostradamus’ aka Michel de Nostredame, from Salon de Provence, Provence, France, had an Italianate nickname given him by his fellow Provencal “prophets,” in places like Nice, Arle, Avignon and Marseille. The prophets of 15th and 16th Century France and Italy used to meet, socialize, and exchange prediction techniques, at a place called the Prediction Castle. It was much like the Magic Castle in LA, where magicians meet and practice new magic acts and generally hang with their professional pals. The Provencal Prophets used to hang out and test new predictions on each other so as to gauge their effects and decide if the new predictions would get them more patronage and government prediction contracts, or alternatively get them thrown in dungeons and torture to death. Anyway, Nostradamus’ nickname was La Cosa Nostradamus, because he used to take bets on the next big hits in Marseille, and down to the Ligurian coast in Genoa, Rapallo, St. Margherita Ligure, and on down to Bologna, which was always the pivot point for control of the Italian peninsula, where the northern gangs and southern Neapolitan and Sicilian gangs duked it out for dominance in what we today call the time of the Italian Renaissance, but which they called “the time of duking it out for dominance.” Why, La Cosa Nostradamus, as he was called at the practice prophecies by his colleagues, even once predicted the year the Knights of Malta would come from Rhodes and build a new Colossus in a faraway land across an ocean and up a very long, very turbid river called Mississipimus. The specifics of the prophecy have been lost, but there is a stone in the town of Santa Margherita Ligure that shows a picture of an unmistakable likeness of the KU Campanile and has the roman numerals for 2014-2015.

    (Note: all fiction. No malice.)
