First Two Wins a Monster Step to 12th Title and Ring Run
KU just took a monster step toward a 12th title and a ring run.
From “Winning Titles” by Bill Self, as told to jay bateman 1.0:
1st rule: win at home–KU just beat the best challenger (OU) and the most talented one (BU) at home.
2rd rule: steal road wins from the best challengers–KU is now in position to go to Waco and Norman and steal road wins. OU and BU lost their chances.
3rd rule: beat the also rans at home and away–KU gets TTech, Tubby and his Ball Line next in.Lubbock.
4th rule: bounce back from breaking rules 1-3–KU doesn’t have to, and OU and BU do.
HUGE EDGE FOR THE BOYS IN BLUE!!!
5th rule: move on from the funk game–each season there is a stretch where teams go into a “funk” and lose playing worse than anyone thought possible. Think next. Don’t try to explain it.

Monster Wins B/4 the Bill Self Era (from Jesse / Topeka Capital Journal):
Awesome recalls. Thanks!
KU has put itself in a fabulous position with these two big home wins.
Now let’s get a road win in Lubbock!!!
@RockChalkinTexas Those are awesome. I remember listening to Bud’s 50 pt. game on the radio.

@RockChalkinTexas I remember reading about Stallworth scoring 50 in a game in the Eagle Beacon .I was a young pup when that happened.

@jaybate-1.0 Yep, its inevitable that KU will experience a funk of some sort the next couple of months. They wont run the table in the Big 12. But KU bounces back very well.

I was back from overseas and back in college. The sun was streaming particularly bright when Bud went crazy. None of it was “In you face,” everything was done in the flow of the game.
