• Does anyone have any video of the ferocious pick. I backed up the TiVo to watch it again and I thought that Landon turned into a brick wall that moved a tiny bit forward at the moment of impact. It won the game for us.


  • @wrwlumpy

    I’ll tell you… so far I really like Beard. He seems solid and a class act.

    This is just one more thing to hang in the positive column. He knew it was coming and told his guy not to flop. Had he flopped, this game (most likely) would have had a different conclusion.

  • I watched the game again and Gray ran right into that pick. Miles Simon claimed “almost a moving screen.” This crap happens all game every game and you want to claim a moving screen with 5.4 secs? Pleez I’m so sick of people making outrageous claims against KU, especially if those claims work against KU. I made several notes or obsessions during the game:

    1. Rich Hellenberg (ESPN moron) made a number of stupid comments during the game. The most ignorant was when he said, “…Liberal, Kansas is not very far away from Lawrence…” Hey genius study your map of Kansas and you’ll see Liberal is in almost the Southwest part of Kansas. Lawrence is up North-Northeast, idiot. This is the kind of analysts ESPN hires.
    2. The Stevenson steal and dunk? He carried the ball and the idiot refs never called it.
    3. Svi walk? LOL, again this happens every game with many players and it’s hardly called.
    4. TT was climbing KU’s backs for rebounds at the 6:00 min mark, no call.
    5. TT stepped on baseline at 6:20 with ref looking right at play.
    6. 5:59 mark, ESPN dropped foul count of KU which showed a disparity.
    7. Miles Simon states obvious on many plays, not real sure about his game calls.
    8. Stevenson out of control all game and will be best game of year. He will never have another game like this game, add the 3 pt kid too, not another game.
    9. Gray fouled and held Jackson all day…should have fouled out of game
    10. Mason 5th foul was a charge, but his 3 or 4th was not a foul, player was not set, dragging his back foot
    11. Jackson called for blocking foul against Gray? Jackson was moving out of the way and Miles Simon even made the comment, NO FOUL
    12. Beard said Gray hurt wrist and wanted another FT shooter? Interesting tactic
    13. This game depleted TT and will end their year…stick a fork in them. I’m concerned what it will do to KU’s overall rest and preparation for WVU in AFH?
    14. FTs continue to be a problem
    15. TT was very physical and it’s a wonder there were no scrums or words between players. Our guys played well and held their cool.
    16. How the foul on Jackson trying to get around TT player dribbling underneath Jackson? Then Jackson went for the ball and ref called Jackson for foul, LOL…dumbest call of the game.
    17. Why do fans shout " #1 " on national television when they are 4-8 in a conference? It wasn’t their little finger pistol either.
    18. Cheap play call by Chris Beard at the end with Gray. I think he told them to foul any way possible to keep KU off the rim. Gray tried to grab Lucas by the leg, didn’t work.
    19. This officiating crew was horribly bias and it was obvious.
    20. TT had the officials cooking for them, and KU still won. I wonder what all the haters will say about this game? The refs won it for KU? hahaha
    21. KU played down and TT played up to KU, as all teams do
    22. KU almost lost this with their charity stripe issues.
    23. A win is a win…great game prep for later

  • Landen got away with an illegal screen on that one. Fortunate not to get called there.

  • @drgnslayr Disagree slayr. I think he got caught in the moment of this game and got carried away. I doubt he meant to, but he made some really rookie type coaching mistakes. I think he tried all he could. He worked the officials all game to get an edge, as all coaches do, but to call him “solid and a class act”? I’m not quite convinced yet. I want to like him and hope he becomes a solid class act in the B12.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 Nope…watched again Texas and Gray ran into him. It could’ve went either way in Lubbock today. We finally got a break by your call.

  • @truehawk93 Watch the link @Crimsonorblue22 posted. Landen was moving when he set that screen, KU was lucky the refs swallowed their whistle there.

  • Geez, based on that clip, LL was moving all over the place.

  • Man. Turned that kid into jello. Rewatching the first half now. Svi had some big 3s and Carlton caught some crap fouls but looked pretty focused first half. i was wondering how those two guys did.

  • @Hawk8086 I wouldn’t say, all over the place.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 He moved several feet and was still moving when the guy ran into him…so I exaggerated a bit…it looks like a clear moving screen.

  • @approxinfinity The foul called on Bragg when Stevenson went coast to coast and at the last second turned his back to Bragg and fell down, don’t they usually call that “out of control?” Just wondering. I noticed several fouls when played in slo-mo and normal, weren’t fouls. And then again, we always get everybody’s “career games” when we play on the road.

  • @truehawk93 said:

    5:59 mark, ESPN dropped foul count of KU which showed a disparity.

    Perfect example of looking hard to confirm your belief that poor little KU is treated unfairly, rather than looking for a possible reason for the “fact” you are describing.

    They dropped the foul count on the KU side because TT went into Bonus+ after KUs fouls got to 10.

  • Udoka won’t need to add the extra smash next year. Obie One, “Landon Lucas,” has taught you well.

  • @truehawk93 Wow dude, that’s quite a list of slights against KU. Starting with your first one. It looked almost like a moving screen to me. Miles called that right in my opinion.

    Why do we so often have a world’s against us attitude?

  • rewatching it, it looked like Landen destroyed someone, took him to the ground in the first half, no call. If nothing else, the whistles seemed to get much tighter in the second half. I mean other than when Gray “fell down” :smile:

  • Ya get so tired of hearing the refs always favor KU, especially when KU has more fouls and TT more FTs. I saw an article about the supposed moving screen on LL on barstool or deadspins Facebook. Anyone that watches CBB knows that a moving screen much like a hold in football could be called on just about every play. TT had every chance with us missing FTs at the end to win, they failed to seize the their chance. End of story.

  • @kjayhawks its true. they got a wide open look from 3.

  • If you think Miles Simon was bad…I had to listen to the Texas Tech home crew call the game on tunein radio while traveling. Wow, there where uncalled fouls on KU almost every possession and Tech got screwed on the few they had. One travel call aside (that Tech got away with) they said KU was better off. Made me wish for Fran for half a second :poop:
