Game Day


  • Developing story: did Mitch bet on OSU to cover?

  • Newman lays it in, but Mitch fouls out on a 3?? Ack

  • Boom!!!

    @KUSTEVE backdoor cover warning

    LOL JK

  • Game

  • Career game for NewMan, perfect timing

  • Cover?

  • I say yes

  • Bring on the purple goobers

  • @BShark Honestly, I don’t care if we win by 1 point. But, it looks over to me, and I think we’ll win by more than 6.

  • That was fun! More ways than one.

  • Good guys win, no threepeat, KU Steve-way to keep the faith man

  • HA. I was just kidding. I knew we’d win.

  • Bshark b wrong…lol.

  • Little redemption

  • I told you guy early on…we got this…😁👍

    Bshark b wrong…lol.

    I think I need to predict a KSU win tomorrow.

  • Laughed about Hollys prognosis on Doke knee looking great jumping up from the bench to support the team

  • @DanR 3-peat! ?

  • @BShark nice.

  • I can not explain how much I dont wanna lose to squeak and silo tech tomorrow, pretty solid outing outside of the first 8 minutes. Malik was great, Vick was defending superb, I think I counted 7 defections for him. Good for Mitch and Silvio to get PT, it wasnt always pretty but they need it.

  • @BShark Exactly…lol.

  • And Missouri loses. Pretttttay great

  • I wanted that W today more than any other this year. So glad we got it the way we did, with hard nosed defense.

  • Well the guys were talking before the game what we needed out of DeSousa & Lightfoot with Doke out - -they were saying if we could get like 12 & 12 - - 12 points and 12 rebounds between them then would be ok for that position - -well check… - -Nothing spectacular but solid.

    Where is our boy that said Coach Self Can’t beat Oklahoma State and needs to adjust - - HOLLA at me -let me hear ya now lmao.

    Like they said maybe in a way having Doke out for the Big 12 tourney - -might be a bonus for us come time for the NCAA give De Sousa playing time

    Malik stepped up - -again they were talking about either Vick or Newman with Doke needed to step up – Step up he did - -we gonna need the same thing tomorrow too - -Cinch it up boys. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @BShark Ya have to love that - - -they said wondered how it would mess with their team chemistry. - -oooops. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • When Okie State went on that 1st half run - -I think they said it was a 16-2 - -went up by 10 - -I thought - -WELP here we go - - AGAIN - -then I went and took my happy pills because the pain in my back was pretty stiff - -took my happy pills - -or otherwise known as Hydrocodone - - lol - -after they kicked in - -and BAM the game became a lot easier to watch lmao. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer73 now we know the rest of the story… glad you are happy?

  • @BShark - - LMAO, ummm remember what I said today about you being a party pooper - -Well SUZ-ZAMM double party pooper lol. - -Hey if you saying that is what it takes for us to win - -then please do my friend lol - - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @Crimsonorblue22 - -LOL - - yes still happy - -for probably just a little bit more lol. starting to wear off lol. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Love the Newman offense, 2nd half defense- excellent!!

  • @JayhawksandChill and good to see Vick show up and enjoying it!

  • @JayhawksandChill I like malik

  • Malik has been building towards a game like this for a while. If he stays consistently aggressive getting into the paint, that could change KU’s tournament trajectory. Newman is not a spot up jump shooter. I don’t understand why he tries to be, when he’s so dynamic getting to the rim.

  • @Buster-1926 Bshark is a great fan of KU. He prefers to be pleasantly surprised when we win. To each his own.

    Part of it is this current team. I wasn’t surprised when the 97, 02, 03, 08, 10, 11 etc… teams won.

  • @BShark We don’t have the talent or the depth we normally have, but doesn’t mean it’s not possible. 1988 was the Alpha/Omega on that …a 6 seed. I was watching newman today, and thinking…where has that been? I almost think we’ve spent so much time getting Doke his looks, we’ve neglected our best play maker.

  • @KUSTEVE Necessity breeds invention. Even with the 4 out 1 in you know Self loved it when Doke was fed. And to be fair he set the conference record for fg%. If Malik can keep it up and Doke gets healthy enough, this team could be pretty dangerous.

  • That 1988 team was simply a left over shell of a great team, and Danny. I mean, they had practically nothing beyond Danny. Chris Piper, Milt Newton and the rest were left over spare parts from the days of Calvin Thompson, Kellog, and the bunch. It’s possible.

  • @BShark I think today showed we can feed the post by letting Newman drive to the lane. A good back screen can work just as good as a dunk.

  • We out scored them in the post.

  • I just hope Newman keeps it up. His drives lead to good results usually and OSU is pretty athletic.

  • Texas?

  • @KUSTEVE 1988

  • @KUSTEVE Sorry, 6 seed. But we had 11 losses, so that is what sticks in the memory.

  • @mayjay that’s right.

  • @mayjay 1988. I need an editor.
