Sunflower showdown part 2 8pm ESPN



  • After a tough loss Saturday we don’t have time to sulk in it. KSU had huge win Saturday at Baylor to help their post season chances. Big Monday for sure. What’s everyones take??

  • KSU has several capable three point shooters, so I’m not sure if zone would be a good option. Shouldn’t throw out the possibility of using it, though. Can’t let DJ Johnson have his way in the paint, which means that our guards will have to control dribble penetration in the paint so that DJ can’t score off of dishes from the guards. On offense, we need to move the ball and attack the paint. Also need to get out in transition and get some easy points. That helped us last year.



  • @HawkChamp I actually think we should zone them to clog up the lane. They have OK shooters but average from deep as a team. The way we play man defense, over helping and being outta position,that leads to open 3s aswell.



  • I’d play man unless ll gets in foul trouble

  • Think Bragg will be back? Ever?



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I think once his diversion is done. I bet he is still practicing.



  • @kjayhawks when is that? He is practicing



  • @Crimsonorblue22 not sure his court date was moved from the 14th to march 4th but I think they handle diversions without a court date.



  • @kjayhawks I thought a diversion was like a year



  • @Crimsonorblue22 It usually is - -back in my not so good years - -I had one and yes it was a year. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I agree - man first, then zone.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    It depends on the type and severity of the offense. I seem to remember reading 6 months but I coul be wrong.



  • My speeding ticket was a year👟💨💨💨💨



  • @Crimsonorblue22 the way I understand it is basically once you get it, it allows you to get rehab or community service that last a year to keep you from getting convicted.



  • @kjayhawks and if u mess up its bad news!



  • @Crimsonorblue22 the question is once he enrolls in the program will he be reinstated??



  • I’m predicting a loss.



  • @BShark I hope not…We have a work streak and beer night @ the shop. They’re is about 6 mildcats, 2 Jayhawks and a sooner boy.



  • @BShark me too, but I hope that doesnt happen. Question: If they wouldn’t have lost yesterday, would everyone be feeling more confident going into tomorrow?



  • @HawkChamp no! Refocus!



  • @HawkChamp with the way we lost yes. But it’s their super bowl, effort is a must.



  • We beat the purple puzzies 94-79. Bruce Weber’s mascara will run all night long,



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    How fast were you driving…or should I say flying?

    In my area, as long as you are not way over the limit, they double the fine and amend it to a defective equipment/non moving violation.



  • @JayHawkFanToo forgot! I made it a year though. Lead foot



  • @JayHawkFanToo I bet he’s playing.



  • What level of infraction do you no longer get to practice, but stay on the team? I have always wondered about this?



  • Has self announced if Bragg is zero tolerance yet?



  • @jaybate-1.0 I bet no practice, you are gone.



  • I feel confident going into every game. I don’t know what’s wrong with some of you guys.

    Well, obviously, being negative (which is easy) makes you feel like YOU win when KU loses, but other than that, WTF?



  • Before the season started, I had a conversation with a die-hard (terminally pessimist) KU fan–the guy claimed he could tell in the first 5 minutes whether KU was going to lose (basically, every game… I agree during the Roy years you could tell if the team showed up).

    He predicted this year we would finish 4th in the B12. I asked him how many conference games he thought we would lose, and he said “four.” I reminded him that 4 conference losses would have won the B12 at least 10 of the last 12 years.

    That’s how many I think we might lose and still end up on top in the conference. Maybe a 2 seed, maybe a 1. I like our chances in the big dance as well as anyone’s, AGAIN, year after year.



  • @DanR

    I like our chances Monday. We are coming off a tough loss and have something to prove… the kitties coming off a big win so will still be in party mode.



  • I know that Bragg was on the bus to Manhattan, that’s all I know.



  • @DanR I try to keep it real above all, my some of my buddies always text me when I think the game is over. I’m right about 9 of 10 times, I said the game was over Saturday after the first 4 minutes of the second half. A blind man could see we had no hustle or energy what so ever and when you give a team hope like that on the road, its dangerous.



  • @kjayhawks What other games have you predicted were over, that’s the point. Pretty sure you’re predicting a first round loss in the tourney already, right?



  • hey, @kjayhawks, My apologies, you’re not the negative nancy I was thinking of. :hand:



  • @kjayhawks

    Awesome on the ground intel. Thanks.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I suspect you are correct in most cases.



  • @DanR lol I’m not sure what to predict yet in March, I’ve compared this team to 04-05 but still not sure tomorrow will mean a lot on how I predict march.



  • Ahh gameday, the most glorious of days! Off to the stop sign of stupid to pound some pussycats!!!



  • I found an alum singing the EMAW Song…have a listen



  • On another note, Have we ever heard Self offer unsolicited remarks about how tired his team is as frequently as we have this year? Seems like every presser he’s talking about how thin this team is and how tired they are. Didn’t the '12 team basically play 5 +KY & Connor?



  • @Blown sounds like excuses to me.



  • @HawkChamp I would think so as well, but in 14 years being here, his MO would be to call them soft or something or "just not that tough.’ If he is saying they are tired, there has to be something to it. Just not in the Okie Baller to make excuses–unless he’s getting ‘soft’.



  • Well with Bragg traveling with the team question is - - Does he play? - - yes or no? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Self texted that Bragg made the trip to Manhattan with the team on Sunday evening but that he had not yet decided if Bragg would play.



  • @jayballer 54

    I vote “yes”.



  • @Blown mentally. Kentucky then Baylor, off the court 💩, Injuries. Coach has had to deal w/more than most coaches lately. Not excuses.



  • If Bragg travels and doesn’t play, then the Riverboat Gambler played a big bluff on Bruce.

    You know the plan for Bruce will be to attack in the paint.

    I like the idea of playing Carlton along side Landen… let’s bring them the unexpected and ATTACK THEIR POST!

    Plus… this can only make our guards hungry again… starting with defense.



Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
