Lookin to do a lil somethen , somethen

  • Ok guys, thought might be interesting, maybe fun, light hearted, this is what I want to do, see who else wants to devolge.: Ok I will go 1st: # 1: My predictation for our record going into Big 12 tourney ? 28-3 # 2 prediction Big 12 tourney ( We win title beating Oklahoma ) Our record doing into Ncaa 31-3 # 3 guys prediction on NCAA’s making the final 4 and losing in Semi ( I know I know, guess it is mr negative in me ) Losing to Michigan State- - -Again. # 4 the cause of our loss- - - -Cold shooting from the outside- - - our rebounding non factor will do us in. WELL there we go lets see what you have to say. ALL POSTS ARE GOOD AGREE- - -DISAGREE who wants to step up & commit lol. lets hear from ya guys. It’s just for fun, and I could very very easily be very wrong, could just as easily win it all but lets play anyway. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 I want to be 20-1 after we throttle Kensucky.

  • I predicted that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert would be married forever.

    I predicted that not even Kansas (the state) was stupid enough to permit open carry. (guns. booze is probably next)

    I predicted that my boss would recognize and reward my hard work.

    I predicted that people would have sense enough to not text and drive.

    Sooooo - No predictions for me. I will say my “expectations” for this team are HIGH. I want to lose 5 games (or less), win the Conference, win the Big 12 Tournament and make it to the Championship game of the NCAA Tourney.

  • I will be surprised if the winner of the big 12 regular season title has less than 5 losses.

    The top 5 teams are all top 25 caliber teams…3 in the top 10.

    And the lower 5 are all improving and capable of beating anyone at home on any given nite.

    18 game double round robin schedule is brutal. Never a cupcake game.

    14-4 or 13-5 will be a very solid conference mark.

  • @jayballer54 I will say 26-5 and we win #12 with 4 losses. Win the Big 12 tourney (we’re due), so 29-5 going into the NCAA. Making the final four and losing in the semis (It’s hard for me to predict that we don’t make it to the final four and equally hard to predict a NC). Cause of loss: cold shooting (and we’ll hear more fool’s gold comments).

  • @nuleafjhawk I think your expectations just became predictions…we’ll put you down for the championship game of the NCAA tourney. 🙂

  • Still too early for me to have a hunch. This team looks really good right now, but more experienced teams always look good early. .

    Three things cloud my crystal.

    Perry’s injury.

    Wayne’ s inconsistent focus.

    The unprecedentedness of a 5-man Composite 5.

    What gives me the most hope for this team?

    Brannen Greene. I think he has high seriousness now. THE CHANGE has happened. He could be THE ONE. If the hip holds up, he could become The BAR man in this platoon. I feel Brannen is the guy on the team with the confidence it takes to go all the way. He has a huge will like Brandon and Travis had. If he has discovered the warrior’s centeredness, the team can have a hub and the killer instinct. He alone can settle Wayne down. Snipers are loners. BAR men are at the center of the platoon. BAR stands for Browning Automatic Rifle. Brannen through a strange process likely orchestrated by Bill Self, now finds himself the center of something bigger than himself.

    Self is a wily devil who knows what every team needs and is willing to go to the wall to get it.

    P.S.: I am taking Frank’s emerging greatness for granted.

  • @jayballer54 I shook up my crystal ball this morning to see what I would predict.

    All it read was “TRAY AGAIN LATER”.

    So I’ll get back to ya

  • @JRyman LMAO, maybe you just need to shake it a little harder guy, lol, but its good we have a little while for our little predictions yet. Only thing is don’t wait till the regular conference season is over and half way through the NCAA’S and then come make your prediction - - - - -ummmm that would make your crystal ball a little unfair lmao. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jaybate-1.0 Well said, very, very, good points. Then we have like the immovable point, the ONE fact that will never go away. every year. Once you get into the tourney, it all becomes a huge crap shoot, Whoever gets on a roll for 6 games, all it takes is ONE bad night, one bad game and your done. If that happens does that mean the best team won the National Title?- - -no not really, most of the time yes, but then there are occasion when anything is possible if things fal into place and a team gets on a roll that’s maybe not quite as good as others, all we have to do is look back to OUR OWN 1988 team Danny and the boys we all know that we probably weren’t the best team in that tourney but things feel into place. Higher seeded teams getting knocked of before we were to meet them, so I guess what I’m trying to say is that MY predictions that are just for fun anyways probably won’t even be close to reality lmao but hey still fun to guess, but very good points from ya guy we shall see. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jaybate-1.0 said:

    P.S.: I am taking Frank’s emerging greatness for granted.

    You and everyone else! We seem to just expect that from him and then carry on when it happens. It seems the hype machine missed him this year. Let’s hope he gets the recognition he deserves next.

    My predictions are 4 conference losses and one more non-con (please not Kentucky, please not Kentucky, please not Kentucky).

    I think we win the Big 12 Tournament. We’re due.

    Right now I have the sense that this is the Elite 8 team 2007 was. We can be beat by a good team in that game. Cause for the loss: undisclosed injuries (nobody beats us at 100%).

    It won’t be MSU that takes us down. No way we lose to them a second time.

    But by March, my bracket will have KU cutting down the nets. It always does. I just think they should win it every year!

  • @jaybate-1.0 Greene will be essential to our national championship run.

  • This team could be 7-0 in conference play before playing @ Iowa St… If that happens its easily the most predictable loss we could have all season. If we somehow leave Ames with a victory its possible that KU is 10-0 in the return game in Norman vs OU.

    I’m expecting that this years squad will not repeat losing to West Virginia & Oklahoma St the way those games played out last year on the road. And we should not lose to K-Suck this year

    The 10 day stretch in late January with Iowa St, Kentucky & K-St is going to be something else!

    Don’t get your panties in a bunch if Texas starts 3-0 in league play, they play the 3 worst teams to start out. There schedule is plenty back loaded though, they could lose their last 8 games.

    March 5th could be one of the games of the year, the last league game against Iowa St on Senior Night. Could be the deciding game for #12…

  • @KUSTEVE if he behaves?😉

  • @Crimsonorblue22 i think we should nominate you to keep him in line. I’ll bet you could do it…

  • Did anyone else see the look on Greene’s face when he got pulled from the game against Holy Cross?

    Piper had just said These are the type of things that keep Greene off the floor…catching passes one handed, not keeping control of the ball when it was in his possession, etc…then he made another bobbled one handed catch and some sloppy ball control. Piper said Greene will be coming out because of that as his sub checked in at the scorer’s table.

    Before a stoppage in play Greene made a very nice and aggressive Drive to the rack for a layup …next time the horn sounded Greene saw he was being subbed for and the look on his face was not good. Couldn’t tell what he muttered.

    I hope he keeps things in check.

  • @BeddieKU23

    KSU on the heals of UK?

    Self will likely downplay the UK game.

    Avoiding an upset by KSU is much more important to the hunt for a 1 seed than beating UK, though he would dearly love some payback.

  • @jaybate-1.0

    I don’t think we will have a problem getting pumped up for that 10 day stretch. The Kentucky game has had life for months now so there’s little chance our players are going to downplay that game, its a revenge game for sure.

  • well WE have the 1 loss right now, I’m looking at 2 league losses. On the road at Iowa State and on the road at Oklahoma, just don’t see us losing at Oklahoma St or West Virginia this year, Watched West Virginia play Virginia like the commentator said, you get West Virginia to shoot jumpers- - - -their done, horrible looking jump shooting team, & Oklahoma State this year- - - - ummmmm nope. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54

    The incentive in Huggy’s contract always gets WVU ready for KU. Baylor is also going to be tough.

  • @JayHawkFanToo think they will zone us!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    This team is built for busting zones…
