Goooooood Morning Lawrence, Kansas!!

  • In the old days, when KU had guys that couldn’t pass eye tests shooting treys, 35% from trey was an off night.

    In the even older days, when KU had a team full of guys bound for a ring that Self said he would not let in the same building with his daughter, 35% from trey would have been cause for a butt chewing by then still youngish coach.

    In the more recent days, when Travis Releford seemed to take on the look of a muscle bound, triple jointed contortionist on Ed Sullivan to take a trey, and averaged 42% for a season, shooting 35% from trey would have seemed an ice cold night.

    But this year with a team supposedly brimming with trifectates capable of shooting the ass out of a gnat at 24 feet, 35% from trey versus Rider made KU seem positively self-immolating hot, a balsa wood house afire, a fracking sink full of natural gas flames.

    Brannen Greene, at 2-4, seemed like Reggie Miller with a flame thrower.

    Svi Mykhailuk, at 2-5, seemed like Larry Bird going 10-11 from down town.

    I mean 35% seems hot with this team, Roosevelt.

    What’s the trey weather like out there against Rider?

    “It’s hot. Damn hot! Real hat! Hottest things is my shorts. I could cook things in it. A little crotch pot cooking.” Well, can you tell me what it feels like? “Fool, it’s hot! I told you again! Were you born on the sun? It’s damn hot! I saw… It’s so damn hot, I saw little guys, their orange robes burst into flames. It’s that hot! Do you know what I’m talking about?” What do you think it’s going to be like tonight? “It’s gonna be hot and wet! That’s nice if you’re with a lady, but it ain’t no good if you’re in the jungle.” Thank you, Roosevelt. Here’s a song coming your way right now.
