November 19th, 2014 Address to Board Rats of

  • Mr. Site Administrator, Mr. Assistant Site Administrator, members of the site and the possible inauthentic aliases lurking:

    Yesterday, November 18th, 2014 - a date which will live in infamy - the University of Kansas was suddenly and deliberately attacked by TADs and OADs comprised of 10 Mickey Ds of the Empire of Kentucky.

    The University of Kansas was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Kentucky, was still in conversation with its chancellor and its athletic director and head coach looking toward the maintenance of peace in college basketball.

    Indeed, a few short hours before Kentucky tank companies had “bum-rushed" through the neutral arena in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Kentucky Head Coach–apparently without his player-relations associate of sorts, World Wide Wes–delivered a formal address about Kansas basketball, which is still played by a normal distribution of D1 Players. And, while this statement indicated that Kansas had a storied tradition, it contained no threat or hint of total basketball war, or of apparently Big Shoe-stacked attack, or of anything other than an ordinary Division I college basketball game being imminent.

    It will be recorded that the distance of Indianapolis from Lexington, and the UK fan base presence, makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks, or even years ago. During the intervening time the University of Kentucky has apparently deliberately sought to deceive the University of Kansas by misleading statements and expressions of hope for continued peace in the game of Division I college basketball, that they were fielding a conventional D1 team, all despite its now apparently unmistakable strategy of apparent Big Shoe-stacking its team with twice as much talent as any other Division I team, and so in essence, creating its own Division 0 in which it in effect plays exhibition games with Division 1 teams, not unlike the Division I University of Kansas playing Division II Washburn, but with the dastardly intent of recording the victories as Division I wins, which they most assuredly are not.

    The attack last night in the neutral arena in Indianapolis has caused severe damage to Kansas starting and backup forces. I regret to tell you that very many Jayhawk hopes have also been crushed. In addition, Jayhawk fans have been reported derided and ridiculed in sports bars between San Francisco and New York City.

    Yesterday the Kentucky basketball program also launched continued attacks against future OAD and Mickey D recruits. Last night Kentucky recruiters probably attacked Jaylen Brown. Last night Kentucky recruiters probably attacked Malik Newman. Last night Kentucky recruiters probably attacked Stephen Zimmerman. Last night Kentucky probably attacked Ivan Rabb. And this morning Kentucky probably attacked Antonio Blackeney and Carlton Bragg.

    Kentucky has therefore undertaken a surprise, unprecedented supra-Division I offensive extending throughout college basketball aimed at apparent Big Shoe-stacking of the deck by means that do not appear consistent with, or achieved by, any known, conventional, previously used, legal means of Division I recruiting, at least as so far argued for on this web site. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The team fielded by the University of Kentucky did not remotely resemble in combined talent level and depth any prior Division I basketball team in memory. The people of the University of Kansas have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our basketball program, our nation, and the greatest game ever invented.

    As just another board rat of this Jayhawk Nation, I can only ask that all measures be taken for our defense, that always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us.

    No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated apparent Big Shoe deck-stacking, the Kansas people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory.

    I believe that I interpret the will of the basketball program and of the nation when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us, or the greatest game ever invented.

    Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our legacy and our interests are in grave danger.

    With confidence in our basketball players and coaches, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph. So help us God.

    I ask that declare that since the unprovoked, dastardly, and apparently Big-Shoe stacked, supra-D1 attack by Kentucky on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014, a state of basketball war has existed between the University of Kansas and the Kentucky Empire.

    (Note: All fictional satire and homage. Apologies and due respect to FDR–the greatest US President of the 20th Century. No malice.)

  • Speaking of shoecos- what was heard in the Kentucky locker room after the game. (referring to our KU team)?

    “Gee, I’d hate to be in their shoes.”

  • @JayhawkRock78 I’m going to put the shoe on the other foot and say, “only playing half a game will not wear out our shoes”! Bad!!!

  • @jaybate-1.0

    Let me preface my post by pointing out that Jaybate’s post is based on the speech given to the Nation by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    I find it in extreme poor taste to use the President’s address to the Nation after the Pear Harbor attack in which thousands of American lives were lost to make a point about a basketball. game…a basketball game…particularly when the anniversary of the attack is less than 3 weeks away.

    Jaybate, you are more than capable to write your own speech, please don’t take take a speech that was given in the wake of the most deadly attack on our country by a foreign power to that date, and one that trigger our entry to WWII that resulted in another 400,000 American deaths, and turn it into a college basketball satire. Maybe I am old fashioned, but there are things that you just don’t do and one of them is satirize a speech given to a nation in mourning.

    This is not about our differences, Jaybate, this is about common decency and I really would like to think that you are better than that.

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    I love you.

    I feel your pain.

    Now, tell me about your favorite social and instituional policies of my favorite President of the USA in the 20th Century.

    Let’s work together to laud his greatness and venerate his memory.

    You first.

    Hey, how about you shoot yourself in the foot again and drag and drop your last bit of art work?


  • @jaybate-1.0

    I was wrong, you are not better than that…

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    I love you.

    Please paste that recent art work of yours again right here. Backfill with it. Wouldn’t that prove your point conclusively? Do you want me to paste it here for you?

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Paste your recent artwork of your alias icon driving the jackhammer into the head of a screaming chap with jaybate across the forehead. I think it will help you, don’t you.

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Or paste it here.

    Or maybe both places.

    Or remove it.

    Hmmm, I mAy have saved it for you. 😄

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    I love you.
