Fran's remarks about LL



  • did anyone else catch our buddy Fran’s remarks about LL last night during the WV/Oklahoma game? I replayed it and at the 5:54 mark an Okie gets fouled and he said that it reminded him of LL by the way he fell. he said that ll looks like a 12 year NBA player who has all the tricks. would someone explain to me that it was meant to be positive, cause I certainly didn’t see it that way. Rock Chalk



  • @autohawk YA, I heard that, glad someone else picked up on that too. That was just that idiot being an idiot, another what I feel is him trying to throw a low blow jab. he needs to get the hell out, he has his nose so far up OKLA, ass. But I heard what your talking about for sure, sorry but I haven’t seen Landen fall that often. - -was he trying to insinuate that Landen flops? lol – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 then he a had a little school girl giggle that went on for a minute or so, just got under my skin. he’s certainly not jay bilas.



  • @autohawk I have no use for him. - -he also likes to try and remind people how out of the 12 straight big 12 championships we have that we had to share them 4 years he says - anytime he can talk smack about Ku - - ummm ya, he is no where close to Bilas. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @autohawk we ALL know how I feel about him! Don’t get me started.🤤🤢😡



  • @Crimsonorblue22 ALL come on let it out - - I don’t know how you feel, I think I can guess lol - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @autohawk It is one of those backhanded compliments. Lucas is slow and not near as athletic as some of his opponents. But he knows all the tricks. How to get position. How to be in the right spot for rebounds. etc.

    Lucas does kind of seem like a 12 year NBA player.

    I also think LL will at least get a tryout for an NBA roster. You could probably do worse for a garbage time post than a rebound machine who can wall off just about anybody.



  • @jayballer54

    “we had to share them 4 years”

    Yeah… he tries to imply that we don’t really have a streak of 12 straight. It doesn’t seem to count when we share the crown.



  • It does seem like he’s frequently badmouthing Kansas in other Big 12 games, without the small amount of restraint he displays during KU games. I wonder if he realizes KU faithful are always watching.



  • @Kcmatt7

    “But he knows all the tricks.”

    Yes… he knows the “tricks”… they used to call them “fundamentals.”

    I believe he is the most fundamental big we’ve had in the Self era. Probably by far!



  • @drgnslayr Well Hell, he should. He’s only been here 5 years!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:



  • Does anyone think Fran wanted his son to be a walk-on at KU instead of OU? If so, does anyone think that Fran’s son was good enough to walk on at KU? I don’t. I do wonder if that conversation took place? I wish I could figure out a reason for the KU hate?



  • @Kcmatt7 If he had a bigger butt, he’d be another Ed Nealy. Cotton Fitzsimmons made him a Millionaire.



  • @KansasComet pretty difficult to connect the dots on this mystery



  • @autohawk I know. I don’t understand it at all. It has to be something?



  • @KansasComet

    I did an analysis of his playing time in a previous post and he probably played a total of 10 minutes per season and had maybe 10 point in his 4 years. Tyler could spot them 19 points in a game of 21 and still beat him. He would have done a lot better at a mid-major.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Wow, thanks! Definitely answers my question. Could not have walked on at KU. Not even with Dad’s influence.

    I found it and listened to it. I’m not sure, but it sounded odd. It’s a little weird how he brings up LL. “…it reminded him of LL.” He mentioned a “mack truck.” I think it was a compliment to Landen’s experience and smarts on the court. It does appear he is comparing to Lattin’s falling to Landen maybe. Then he mentions Konate pushing Lattin, which might be a reference to Konate’s size. Who knows? I’ve lost all bball respect for Fran.



  • Yep, 5:54 mark of 2nd half. He tried so hard to recover from what was CLEARLY a jab at Landen.

    I think someone mentioned above, I can’t ever remember seeing LL flop. In fact, I’d say there are times where he SHOULD’VE flopped to sell a foul that was there but never called. He gets bulldozed all the time and the refs never call it.



  • @chriz that nasty lil laugh, only to himself



  • It seems a little obvious to me what Frans issue with KU is, his son walked on at OU, walk on or scholarship it doesn’t matter, he was vested and into OU, it was his sons team for crying out loud. He loved OU because his son played there and he will always favor them. He will always hate KU deep down because he is an OU fan at heart. The same reason all other Big 12 teams hate us, we always win. Even when OU had some of their best chances with future pros with Griffin and recently Buddy, they could not beat us. He is paid to be partial however he just can’t help himself. I am for one getting tired of his face and his comments, I tweet him daily letting him know that he is obvious in his hate for KU.



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