JUDGEMENT TIME IS AT HAND IN THE LAND OF JOHN BROWN
It turns out Greg Marshall likes to win ugly, too.
The Wheat Electrocutionists beat the Indiana Izzo Lites by going positively Medusan.
You remember Medusa. Wikipedia says, Medusa "…was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Medusa looked like this.
15% from 3.
40% FG overall.
The Wheat Electrocutioners won by winning the TO stat by 6, the strip stat by 6, and getting 15 more FTAs.
Sound familiar on the FTAs? They shoot them about as well as KU does, too.
MEDUSA BALL is like BAD BALL, only with protection and with all of the driving being done by two guards, not spread all around guards, wings, and mobile big man attack platforms.
MEDUSA BALL does share one more thing in common with BAD BALL: perimeter guys shag a lot of rebounds.
When KU and WSU square off, if you don’t like a lot of perseverative driving and ugliness, I suggest you watch with a blindfold on.
If you want a work of aesthetic grace, I suggest you go to the Joffrey.
If you want some beauty, I suggest you catch a Kate Hudson photo shoot.
You aesthetes out there, you basketball purists of the run like a gazelle and shake and bake off a ball screen, and run some action to create space to impact in school might as well get a case of Murine and plan on serial eye dropping.
This KU-WSU game is going to be Close Encounters of the Worst Kind for you Percivals and Julius’s.
Now there is a man who is going to have the time of his life watching this matchup and his alias would be @drgnslayr.
His only complaint about this match up is that it is going to be held in a big time arena in a small time town, instead of some asphalt playground in south of Eight Mile in Detroit with chain link fences woven with barbed wire and metal nets filed into razor edges by some sadististic hit men tandem putting on their silencers under the Fist Statue in downtown Detroit before driving their Black Mafia Staff car to the play ground to shoot the losing team in honor of the second coming of Meso-ball.
Oh, and there won’t be enough head fakes.
@drgnslayr’s wife is NOT, I repeat, NOT going to be using the P word to describe the guys playing this asphalt dance of Thunderdome Death.
To steal from PAUL m!@#$%^ f!@#$%^& STEWART ANDERSON, THERE WILL BE BLOOD!
AND FRACKED COAL GAS!
AND WHAT EVER ELSE BELCHES AND ROILS UP OUT OF THE BOWELS OF BASKETBALL HELL IN THIS CONFRONTATION OF THE GET CLOSE PITBULLS OF COLLEGE BASKETBALL.
You remember the guy in Vegas that used to shout, “Let’s get ready to rumble!”?
Well, that guy was a pussy and Vegas was a church retreat.
If the right guy were announcing this KU-WSU game it would be Vin Diesel in a chain vest, ammo belts, and black leather pants and tactical boots wielding an M-240 at the score board, shouting "LET’S BRING THIS F!@#$%^ING CRIB DOWN, and shooting the scoreboard until the lights go completely black and then after another belt firing the whole flipping scoreboard comes crashing down on mid court and they play the Neo-Meso Ball game AROUND the cratered scoreboard!!!
JUDGEMENT TIME IS AT HAND IN THE LAND OF JOHN BROWN.
@jaybate-1.0 Lets beat the shi* out of those guys, and shut their loud mouth fan base up for another 30 years or so.
@jaybate-1.0 Come on JB, give us a prediction.
@jaybate-1.0 That sounds about right. Tough game. But dang, I feel like we should win!
Hell, yeah, we’re gonna win.
This is on the way to Myitkyina!!!
There’s just going to be more hellfire, brimstone, and tornadoes than usual on the Burma Road.
@jaybate-1.0 You said Marshall likes to “win ugly”. After looking at the specs and the gallon of Grecian formula in the hair, I would surmise he is used to winning and losing ugly.
@KUSTEVE did you see him rake his forehead to get the sweat off? Gross! Hair stuff dripping?😱mr angry😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
@Hawk8086 crimson says we win by more than 10💃💃💃❤️💙👍
I’m going with Bill Self in any and all trench warfare situations!!!
@Crimsonorblue22 Yes, he is a perfect candidate for sweat reduction therapy…
@jaybate-1.0 And I thought I was nervous for the NMST game? Oh boy. Wichita state says they play angry. Their coach says they play tough. Im thinking KU can out tough Wichita state and Coach Self better have his bag of tricks ready cuz he is a waaaaaay better coach. We have to get them in foul trouble early early cuz our bench is deeper. We have to take their #1 and 2 guys out of the equation. Cut the head off and the body dies. Xcept with Medusa, apparently she can still kill a mofo. Lets hope KU goes all Harry Hamlin on their Medusa ball playing arses.
I’m predicting the refs take The hawks out of the game early to provide a controlled viewership study for future references. How Many tubes turn on for the sweet 16 for wsu when they are no longer the Cinderella vs how many tubes KU has turned on in past viewership opportunities.
Yes, a part of me has truly become this jaded with how money is controlling the game. This game was set up from the very beginning in my opinion. Espn has been plugging it since day 1.
“@drgnslayr’s wife is NOT, I repeat, NOT going to be using the P word to describe the guys playing this asphalt dance of Thunderdome Death.”
She’ll do it if they don’t come ready for 40 tough minutes.
This is my nightmare scenario!
So I’m focusing on positive thoughts now. A Jayhawk team that brings it all for 40 minutes and a big time win!
If we do that… this could be the game that is the starting platform of a big March run!
That’s where my head is!!!
@Blown I tired to keep an open mind about refs and scheduling over the years, but I think you are right about this one and I posted nearly the same about UCLA viewership swinging the SMU game with a rediculous goal tending call.
@Blown really wish i could refute that. But…
AND WHAT EVER ELSE BELCHES AND ROILS UP OUT OF THE BOWELS OF BASKETBALL HELL IN THIS CONFRONTATION
AMEN, says the congregation to pastor Jaybate!
No doubt ncaa set this game up, but the refs aren’t going to take us out, only we can.
@KUSTEVE Grecian contains lead acetate so don’t even consider it. Marshall’s looks more like an Elvis dye-obviously fake. Maybe he’s saving pennies by having the wife do the doo?! If his wallet & pockets are full of one $ bills & quarters then she may not be the one that’s middle age crazy…!!
Larry Brown called…he said don’t be so sure about that…:)
@JayHawkFanToo that sucks so bad for them!!!
I posted a map of the ESPN poll about the call…the entire country believes it was a bad call…
@JayHawkFanToo saw that. Announcers today keep saying it was the right call.
Obviously they got the memo form the NCAA…say it was the correct call or else…
