Hooray, VBers!



  • Just finished watching the women move into sole posession of 1st place in the conference by beating #4 Texas 3-1 in Lawrence. Some fantastic play by both teams!



  • @mayjay

    I watched the game myself, great win for the Lady Jayhawks.



  • Hmmm…I didn’t realize that Women’s VB was a subset of a football coach being fired. I wasn’t following that thread cuz I really didn’t care too much. Just now read it and see that a lot of you were posting there. I was wondering why no one was watching!



  • @mayjay like to keep ya on your toes. Any wind yet?



  • @mayjay it just kinda took off on that thread because several of us were watching it lol.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Tropical force winds are supposed to get here about 3 or 4 a.m. according to Accuweather, but the NHC seems to think winds will be here a couple hours later. Forecast says about 5 hours worth, with some of 45 to 50, with gusts over 70. We will be just south of the track, putting us squarely in the worst zone.

    Our neighbor has two tall pine trees that I am skeptical of. Cannot see them in the dark. I wish the winds from these storms would once, just once, arrive in daytime here (Florence was at 2 a.m.). And they just announced a tornado 45 miles south of here, so there is that, too.

    Maybe I will stay up to keep track of this crap so I can move wifey to another room far from the trees if the winds seem to make it necessary (NOT WAKING HER UP UNNECESSARILY, NO SIR!).



  • @kjayhawks I figured. Usually that has happened in a bb thread so I would catch it.

    For that matter, now my latest weather reports are in the VB thread. Go figure.

    Maybe @approxinfinity needs to create a cross-topic refereincing system.

    Uh oh! TV just buzzed a tornado watch. About our 5th this year. Reminds me of living in Kansas. I swear, if I die in a tornado from a GD tornado in SC after moving from Tornado Alley, I will be so damned mad for eternity!



  • @mayjay if the wind gets up, please do! Oh and🤣



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Went out to watch the clouds moving fast. Came in, saw we now have a tornado warning here until 7 a.m. Moved wife away from trees. No complaints!

    Will probably be busy for awhile… Gnight!



  • @mayjay be safe buddy



  • @mayjay warning til 7? Glad you moved👱‍♀️



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Depends on who you consult. Local news says Twatch until 7, Accuweather said Twarning until 7, but they just changed it to TS warning til 7 along with the tornado watch (2 separate alert boxes), but local news say TS warning is through Saturday.

    TWarning here has expired. It now looks like the original Accuweather may have been exaggerated, with heaviest winds up to 40 for several hours just after the “reputed” sunrise that won’t happen. Will probably only get to the 30’s overnight. Gusts up to 50.



  • @mayjay

    If is any consolation, the weather here has been cold (30s-40s) and rainy…really, really rainy…for the last few days and will continue through the weekend. By the time it warms up some early next week the yard will be like jungle…with isolated lakes…:unamused:



  • @JayHawkFanToo Sounds pleasant. At least it has been warm here (the 30’s I mentioned were wind speeds). We got a low temp last night of 56, which is the first temp in the 50’s since April. Dry now. You would never know a killer storm had snuck by 24 hrs ago.

    It’s been crazy. I thought the creek near my house was going to flood.



  • @dylans Been wondering–any of that rain ever get to you, or are you still stuck where the storms magically split and pass by to leave you dry?



  • @mayjay

    Extensive flooding in the KC area. We basically skipped Spring and went from Winter into Summer and now look like we might skip Fall and plunge into Winter. Crazy year.



  • @mayjay Thankfully it broke free mid June and has been wet ever since. 6” last weekend.



  • 9 straight for the volleyball team as they sweep Tech on the road!!!



  • Playing KSU right now on the U, pretty sloppy so far. Tied a set a piece

    maybe we got a little bit much of ourselves



  • Yep dropped the third set after leading by 4 in it now down 6 in the fourth. It looks exactly like when they beat us in Basketball, we just show up and they have the energy and fire. I just turned it off, I ain’t gonna watch a team just go thru the motions like they have better to do. Maybe they over looked KSU with the big games they’ve won and KSU being 0-6 in the league. Sadly I think we had like 7 or 8 straight wins in the series. It just stuff you’d expect from a young team but still disappointing.

    ya like you say relly disappointing young or not. Especially when how we play against Texas /Baylor



  • @jayballer73 where have you been?



  • KU down 1 point 20-19 in the 4th.



  • KU with. Momentum 22-20



  • Tied at 25…



  • @JayHawkFanToo We lost the feed! in commercials?



  • Lost



  • @mayjay

    Me too…ESPN says commercial break…



  • @JayHawkFanToo Lost 27-25.



  • Feed is back, KSU wins 27-25…rats…😒



  • Snapped a 9 game winning streak against them, guess we’ll have to start a new one.
