Gameday!!!!



  • Curious what everyone is hoping to see tonight in particular. For what it’s worth, I’m just hoping for lock-down, ball denial defense and allow 0 offensive rebounds.



  • No injuries.



  • Ditto above post. Health is the biggest concern. We already had a few knicks and bruises from the first.

    As a team I would like to see them win by 50 at least and make it look almost too easy. This should be the expectation. Team defense and rebounding are two things I’ll be looking at the most.

    Individually I’d like to see Doke look a bit better conditioned. I know its not going to happen overnight but he needs to get to the point where he can play 25-30 minutes this season (that’s if he doesn’t foul out).

    Looking forward to seeing Garrett. Would like to see if he asserts himself a little more offensively. He was very unselfish in the first exhibition



  • Really anxious to get to be able to see Garrett, I haven’t myself seen him in live action - any action as far as that goes - - that ends Friday when we play our 1st REAL game.

    Been hearing nothing but positive things about him - and I’m sure not doubting , just makes me excited to get the chance to actually see him for myself. - -Think he is going to be a really good player for us and hearing he is very multi talented can do a lot of things - -can’t wait. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    You didn’t see the first exhibition game?



  • Apparently not. He showed a lot of what he can offer this team against Pitt St. Defense and penetration to the rim.



  • I thought the biggest takeaway was how unselfish he already is. He feeds the post, he makes the extra pass. No ego, just fits like a glove already. Again the sample size is extremely small but Italy, Missouri, 1st exhibition game have all shown the same traits from him

    Always good to see the positive things you read about a recruit turn out to be true.

    The staff is extremely high on Garrett.



  • I’m okay with a 20 something point win. No need to over exert anyone tonight trying to run guys out of the gym. More than anything, you just want execution and effort. This is really building towards the first real test against UK.



  • @justanotherfan want to see some boards!



  • @BeddieKU23 No I didn’t get to see the game - - -wasn’t on a station for me - -I have Dish TV - -Dish didn’t carry it. - -If I had Cox they carry but I don’t - - This is one thing I hate about Dish - -they don’t carry the J-Hawk network - - just like tonight won’t be able to watch anywhere - BUT I’ll get to see him Friday. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 you can watch the replay the espn app

    Is that espn 3? - – and when would that be available? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 I use the watchespn app, replay comes on after the game. Idk if espn3 has replays

    Well, KState beat them by 23 and they are awful so I would figure a huge win pretty easily.



  • @jayballer54 ESPN3 has the game up immediately after it ends for replay. Nice quality so far this year and a login should be included in you sat. package. FYI KU was horrid the first half. That kind of effort will lead to losses. On the bright side Billy knows how to get buckets, even if the rest of the squad is offensively challenged.



  • @jayballer54 does dish get replays on espn3? Sling picked up espn3 but doesn’t provide replay on it.



  • @3genhawk yes dish and directv both do



  • Goto Watch ESPN directly and log in using sling acct/pw. I got replays last year that way but could not get them through sling directly.



  • @Kubie - Via SlingTV, I was able to get an (almost) immediate replay of the game on ESPN3. I’ve had no trouble with it and this is my second year. Thanks for the info, in case I cant get this to work in the future!



  • @Gorilla72

    If you don’t mind me asking, which Sling package do you have?



  • @JayHawkFanToo sling has a package for fox sports and 1 for espn. I have the espn package with espn3 but it doesn’t have replays.



  • @JayHawkFanToo, $20/month with all the ESPN channels. Received a free ROKU for signing up an prepaying. I’ll quit in late March, as I did last year. I receive a ton of games!



  • @3genhawk - Hhmmm. I watched the KU game on replay last night after the game. It appeared to be “on demand”. I wonder if living outside the primary KU broadcasting area has anything to do with it… I live in SoCal.



  • @Gorilla72 I watched the replay on the watchespn app



  • Almost every game we play is available on live sports streams on the internet. Make sure you have an ad blocker if you use it.



  • Watching Kentucky - - Utah Valley - - Utah Valley up by nine. - - with 2:00 left in 1st half - -Kentucky struggling looks young & not to good at this point in the game - -umm don’t worry they are young don’t try to make much out of this - but dam. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    WE need to keep in perspective ya know - -but year finished 0-15 from the field in the 1st half - -shooting 21.9 % - -understand they are really young - but like walker said at the half - Normally Uk has that established point guard - not so much this year - talking about how they may have to play games in the 70’s this year - but your right - at the half any way Rupp stunned - -LOL- you ought to check out their fans on the board on the live stream of the game - they are hot - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    TCU might legit be the 2nd best team in the B12.



  • @BShark That’s the kind of turnaround our football team needs.



  • @dylans Much harder in football but amen brother.



  • Indiana getting beat by Indiana St 72-45…omg…



  • West Virginia is not good and it’s hard seeing them getting that much better. Ahmad is a big loss for them but he will give them a scorer when he returns



  • Starters are Graham, Vick, Garrett, Svi, Doke.



  • UM. Billy isn’t playing at all tonight. Crap.



  • For missing curfew and a class.



  • @BShark r u serious?

    @BShark r u serious?

    I would not joke about this. Was posted on official KU twitter account.



  • @BShark he let the whole team down!



  • @BShark I think I meant more what a dumb thing to do!



  • Indeed. Gonna be a ton of Mitch tonight so hold yer breath.



  • So dumb



  • 7 players tonight. Yeah sign silvio up yesterday



  • Reminder we are over on Slack!



  • DG attacking down hill, no problem!



  • Hey Billy! We can play w/out you!🤦🏽‍♂️



  • @approxinfinity can you send a link?



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Coach Self just confirmed it.🙄
