Okay you sunnsafemaledogs! Which one of you ran my car battery down in a rainstorm....

  • …in a grocery store parking lot, killed my cell phone and left me stranded waiting for a tow in a torrential downpour that never came, so I missed the most unbelievable win of a season full of unbelievable wins?

    I am soaking wet in front of my flipping computer, because I tried to run home in the rain, but am too flipping old to make it, and instead got picked up by the road side service, returned to the car, jumpstarted the car, and got home just seconds after the game ended and I am reading over the box score and watching what few feeds I can find, because I can’t get logged into my arch nemesis CBS to watch a replay of KU beating Failor with two Landen Lucas free throws at the end of a 67-65 victory by KU that appears literally statistically impossible to have occurred based on the box score and game stats. To wit:

    FG% KU 41.8% BU 42.9%

    FT% KU 80% BU 81.8%

    3pt% KU 25% BU 44.4%

    REBs KU 27 BU 35

    PFs KU 13 BU 18

    How could this HAPPEN???

    Did KU’s sixth man, Scott Drew, cause his team to shoot to few treys and foul us too much? Was it that simple?

    How did Self and Company figure out a way to win making only 25% on 20 treys, while getting out rebounded +8!!!

    OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!

    Did Pompeo and General Kellogg conduct a coup during the night and take over the Deep State from the Obama in Exile gubmint and turn the entire Deep State apparatus against Failor for 40 minutes before dismantling it for ever?

    Has Trump restored the republic, when it seemed his political goose had been cooked by the Flynn fiasco?

    Did Putin and Assange get together and dump something on Failor onto Wikileaks?

    Was the game played in a parallel universe called WacoPrime?

    What gives here?

    How did Self do it?

    How did the most insanely brilliant coach of his generation do it?

    Did Self play junk zone the entire game, or press every possession?

    Neither Mitch Lightfoot, nor Dwight Coleby are mentioned as getting ANY PT at all.

    Vick had 6 rebounds!!! Did Vick play post, when Lucas took a blow?

    Help me, help me, help me, I think I’m going INSANE…with…JOY!!!

    Was Malik given a Mission Impossible latex mask to look like someone and did he play?


    (Note: almost forgot–all fiction and kidding around regarding our noble fellow Kansans Pompeo, Kellogg and our President and the goofy news swirling these days. No malice either. Rock Chalk Washington DC Jayhawks!)

  • @jaybate-1.0 Somehow we know that minor snafu’s and fubar’s as you have encountered…can’t keep a good Marine down, right?!

  • @ralster

    I’m getting tooooooooooooo…old…for…this…shit!!!

  • @jaybate-1.0 Ha…we know you’re tuff…

  • @jaybate-1.0 are you serious?

  • @ralster

    But I’ll tell ya what…if this was what it took to get a W in Waco to buy this team the insurance against injury that it needs down the home stretch, I would gladly go through it all again!!!

    Rock Chalk Jayhawk GO KU!!!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Absol-flipping-lutely serious.

    It was like the basketball gods had finally actually decided to test my commitment to the my Jaybirds.

    It was like a freaking movie from Stanley Kubrick!!!


  • @jaybate-1.0 I was lucky enough to see the last 12 minutes of regulation. I also ran into CBS problems. GRR.

    SO from what I could see, NO KU zone, just tough, sticky man to man. Made stops when it counted the most, knocked down shots and free throws when it counted the most. Game Over!

  • @jaybate-1.0 why would you go to the store so close to game time? Now you will have to sit in parking lot the rest of our season.

  • @Lulufulu

    Thank god, but how did they overcome the 25% trey balling?

  • @jaybate-1.0 How did we outscore them in the paint 36-26? i think Josh Jackson is 2nd in POY- he was absolutely tremendous.


  • @Crimsonorblue22 I’ll rewind your this 3 word phrase, and cue it up with full-on DickieV voice “are you ser-ious?!”, with camera of course panning to Mason, or as ESPN is prone to do, at JoshJackson/diaper-dandy-of-the-moment…

    Put my eyes out!!!

  • Big boy only had 2 boards. Motley had 6 to’s

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    only 2? AMAZING!!!

  • Think Final Four.

  • Does Scott Drew deserve the KU game ball? Did he do anything unusally stupid?

  • Motley had 2 charges-they called. More they didn’t call.

  • We played really hard!

  • Maybe we will hang a play hard banner like ksu?😳😂🤣

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Oh, that is music to my ears. I was hoping Self was going to amp them for this one.

  • We had 8 blocked shots- they had 2. Josh Jackson is the best freshman ever- he had 4 blocked shots. We are a national title team.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    God that banner was funny.

    Maybe KU should make a real one and hang it up in Allen Field House for every KSU game.

  • Okay, everyone, I’m going to peel down and shower off in some hot water before I infarct.

    Have a great rest of your day all!!!

  • @jaybate-1.0 I did it!!!

  • @Lulufulu we did play some zone

  • @jaybate-1.0 Good Grief. Are you at least able to watch a replay. I have it on my DVR it you want to come by.

  • @jaybate-1.0 I agree. I watched the entire game and I still am amazed we won with Svi and DG going 2 for 18 and Josh only 1 rebound. NO WAY!!! But yes way. Just hope we have enough left to finish thru early April. Just a fab job Jayhawks!!!

  • The answer is Frank Mason 3

    KU did play 2-3 zone quite a bit in H1 and early part of H2

  • The block stat blows my mind. We give up a ton of length and block them 9 times?

  • @Blown smart play and ball movement negates length. I think people overestimate the effect of length on a smart well coached team. Remember Nova last year? Were they a long team?

  • I’ll take a small fast team over a tall team any day!

  • @jaybate-1.0 wow that’s a crazy afternoon

  • @Crimsonorblue22 you say that but if Self coaches Baylor players this year and Drew coaches Kansas players, Self still wins. Like the old Bear Bryant quote. “He can take his and beat yours and he can take yours and beat his”

  • @Blown I just meant I would

  • @Blown

    imagine what Bill could have done with all of the big men that Scott drew has waisted !

  • @jaybate-1.0 and conversely, imagine how little Drew would have gotten out of Lucas who has proven to be so valuable under Bill.

  • @Blown

    Much more positive way of putting it!

    Less cliched too!

  • @jaybate-1.0 said:

    You know EXACTLY how this happened. You even mentioned it in your post:

    KU’s sixth man, Scott Drew

  • We had a lot of steals as well. I just got finished watching as I had some other things to do today. Kind of reminded me of WVU. Slept walked through much of it, not quite as badly as Monday night. It was one of those the only real satisfaction was the final result type of games. Was kind of ugly, we barely led ever during the game. Game winning points come off of FT’s by Lucas. That foul thankfully was called but when it happened I thought they were going to call a jump instead but replay showed verticality was violated and Lucas made them pay.

  • @jaybate-1.0 We won because Landen shot 100 free throws AFTER!!! The West Virginia game. After the game by George. Check out the article on the LJW site. How about the press goes crazy over a totally responsible and good student athlete like LL instead of all the alleged behavioral caca? 100 after the most exhausting emotional game of all time. Good Lord what a kid!

  • @wissox said:

    replay showed verticality was violated and Lucas made them pay.

    The ESPN guys kept saying it wasn’t a foul during the NC-UVA game last night. I think they were only looking at the right hand on the top of ball, and missed the fact that the left arm was across Lucas on the way up and the right arm was all over LL’s wrist and arm. They often don’t call that when the hand is all the way on top.

    But, it probably could have been called either way. Bang-bang plays are much harder to call than the level of precision available with the 3,276 slo-mo replays we all get to watch.

    At least BU had a chance after that play, so it didn’t decide the game.
