KU vs the Purps



  • No Fran guys! We lucked out!!!

    Mark Neely & Miles Simon on call.

    Now what do we expect tonight? A hungry team at home or a close game yet again? Going with a close game, its the only way we win these days

    Frank with 25, Josh with 2 Top 10 worthy dunks.

    Oh and someone on TCU will have a career day from 3, most likely Parrish or JD Miller.

    Does Kenrich Williams still have his half-finished mop in the back of his head?

    Also Slim Shadey makes his appearance in Lawrence for the first time (Fisher).

    Let’s wrap up #13



  • @BeddieKU23 Tonight is the night Brandon Rush is surpose to get his Jersey hung in the rafters. - I believe they said it’s the 1st cone since 03. - -Mario Chalmers is surpose to be here tonight too to watch the festivities. I hope that maybe we can have a little better games over 10 point outcome.

    Subject was brought up again, yesterday on the sports call in I listen to. After we wrap up the championship, just how big is it or how much is it worth to win the Big 12 tourney championship? - -Points brought out like we are pretty much locked into a # 1 seed in the NCAA. So do we rest these guys? - -Frank, Devonte, Josh, Landen? - -give them some rest for the NCAA"s? let them recharge their batteries, so they can be more fresh for the tourney that REALLY matters?

    I’m almost to the point like is being mentioned I’m almost agree it would be better to let them rest for a bit. So what if we don’t win the Big 12 conf tourney, give these guys some extra rest.Start SVI. Vick, Bragg, Lightfoot or Coleby if anything let Frank and gang just play very spot minutes.- -I think along with many others maybe we SHOULD go that route, try to help dead legs - what you think? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Do we rush the court?



  • 9 consecutive wins against them… I say it’s a close first half then we relax and pull away. DG finds his stroke again and hits 5 3’s.

    Down to the last two games in AFH games for most of our starters… and they make a statement (finally) against a lesser opponent.



  • I’m going to the game tonight and I’m taking my 5-year-old daughter to her first game. I’m so psyched!

    Little did I know when I bought these tickets several weeks back that we’d have a chance to wrap up at least a tie for the league title. And I just found out a few days back we’ll be retiring Brandon Rush’s jersey at halftime. It all sets up for a magical night in the Fieldhouse.

    I hope the crowd is ridiculously loud as I’ve been trying to explain to my daughter just how crazy the atmosphere is. But, words are an inadequate substitute for actually being there. I’m looking for a high energy performance from the boys to close out #13, with lots of highlight reel plays. Regardless, I hope it’s a night she will never forget!



  • @jayballer54

    First one since 2003? Mario’s number was retired and his jersey raised at AFH in February of 2013…perhaps this is what you meant?



  • @JayHawkFanToo ya it was 2013. - -Not sure what I was thinking of, I hate old age lol. - darn brain fades, the article was talking about how Mario was excited for Rush when he could get his SINCE Mario had his in 2013 - - my bad lol – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @tis4tim I’ll be there too! Have ear plugs for daughter? Have fun!



  • @nuleafjhawk I like that oh ya FOR SURE lol, rush the court, I mean why not everyone else rushes it for just a regular win against us. I’m just playin and I know toy are too just having fun. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @tis4tim I wish I knew how to post a link here, Matt Scott on his twitter account has this post, something to the effect like you can’t match the phog & it was all about the pre-game noise level and excitement it’s really cool If ran it multiple times, - -Check it out on his twitter Matt Scott from the shiver - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 copy and paste the link. If you want to get fancy add a set of [] and () like this: [KU Sports] (www.kusports.com) But remove the space and you get: KU Sports

    Click edit on my post to see it if that helps.



  • Middle of the week game against a lesser opponent. I’ll be counting the empty seats at AFH tonight. My preliminary guess is 0, except for the VIP seats on the eastside bleachers after halftime for the folks still enjoying the food and beverages in the VIP Lounge and aren’t aware that the second half has started. I was fortunate enough to wear one of those wristbands last year and was surprised no one told us the second half had started. My apologies for getting back to my seat late for the second half. It’s a good thing Dick V didn’t call me out.



  • @stoptheflop

    You mean the whine and cheese crowd seats? They probably go for at least $10K per seat contribution to the Williams fund and are bought by wealthy posers (or corporations) that want to see and be seen there but don’t care much about basketball in the first place. I have seen couples sitting there with young kids that had their head buried on their IPads the entire game and couldn’t care less about the game…what an effin’ waste of good seats



  • @JayHawkFanToo everyone is pretty crazy there! I don’t see much of that.



  • @tis4tim

    Wow you really lucked out. Have fun!



  • @BeddieKU23 forget me?😳



  • @JayHawkFanToo Yes, the wine and cheese seats. After halftime, there are always several rows of courtside seats empty for several minutes into the second half for these late returners. It makes me smile every game.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I just saw your post, did you know Rush’s Jersey was getting retired when you got them?



  • @stoptheflop

    Coach Williams used to call them the “whine” and cheese crowd…



  • @BeddieKU23 my son had not given up the tickets yet so they were still available for me👍. Hoping to cut the nets down too! Up and back trip today and back Monday.
