I no longer listen to the in-game radio broadcasts because I can’t ever get the radio and visual broadcast to sychronize.
I had not considered that maybe the ESPN+ delay suited a strategic purpose; keen observation.
@jayballer73 he and Self are friends. They alluded to hanging out together last time we were in Morgantown. I think he deeply loves basketball and the process of coaching guys up. He cares about his players.
@kjayhawks It is actually s big disparity between the amount of texts i get from republican causes vs democratic, way way more from the republicans. And I have never gotten a robo call from a democratic and have gotten many from republicans.
To your point, the car warranty calls i would absolutely call harassment. They’re trying to sell me a bs ancillary warranty, completely ignore my requests to cease and desist, and when I question their reps about what company they belong to, they either hang up or tell me that their company is named Warranty Department. no shit. That’s what one told me when I grilled her.
Great win. In Morgantown. Despite the refs letting the WV bigs camp in the lane all night. I’m still trying to adjust my in-game impression to our defense first, offense maybe style of play. Winning with 58 points is strange and quite different to the KU basketball I’ve known all these years. Since Braun isn’t looking to shoot (one shot in 16 min last night) and Moss is currently our only threat from 3, I say start Moss and give him 30 minutes a game. But, that’s because I’m still under the belief (clearly misguided) that it takes good offense to win games. How few points can this KU team score and still win?
Whatever the formula is to get Moss to shoot like that is A-OK with me. He seemed comfortable off the bench last night.
It’s crazy that they said something like 31% of people who voted in the NH primary weren’t decided before the last debate. It make the case that it doesn’t matter if Bloomberg gets in late or even advertises in markets other than the ones in the next couple primaries.
I responded to conservative tweets and posted on comment threads on conservative news sources, stuff like that. I’m assuming that is how they got me.
@FarmerJayhawk I have seen not a single political ad in Virginia save Trump during the Superbowl yet. Hadn’t occurred to me about the ad rates. Very interesting.
Bloomberg prefers Bernie to Trump, right? (I admittedly know very little about Bloomberg)
What grade would you give Bloomberg’s ads? What is the content like? What do you think the impact of the ads you’ve seen thus far would be?
So Bloomberg presumably comes in with the attack ads on Trump en force. Because thats how he brands himself, like a rich cavalry swooping in over the hills to help the good guys in the skirmish. He can’t attack the Dems, at least at first, because he’ll be instantly hated.
So does a prolonged attack campaign against Trump help the Democratic cause? My guess is yes? But I hope its done well, because for better or worse, it will be what determines if the Democrats can attract voters outside the party.
Fun national poll result; 2nd choice of Biden supporters: Bernie 28%, Bloomberg 23%, Warren 16%. Voters tend to be less ideological than we assume.
Interesting. Part of that I think is that Bernie has been campaigning hard with minorities. Referred to as “Uncle Bernie” by his Hispanic supporters.
Yeah, also the narrative that this is a race of moderates vs progressives is divisive, language that Fox is happy to chuck about. It’s more in the interest of unity to look at the field as multifarious
“And let me say that this victory right here, is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
You’re a bad, bad man Bernie. Yeah @Kcmatt7, Bernie will beat Trump. @Crimsonorblue22 when you said “everyone besides the old guys” for who could out debate Trump, you were referring to Biden and… Sanders? The guy on my TV right now is going to beat the crap out of Trump in a debate.
I want to hear Buttigieg speak tonight. Klobuchars speech was essentially her stump speech, same jokes and turns of phrase. One of the voters in NH was talking about how Pete was a fast thinker and able to speak off the cuff eloquently. With that in mind I want see him speak off the cuff.
But that’s just my opinion. I’m sure whoever the Dem candidate is will run another terrible campaign.
“And by the way, I’ve got a plan for the Midwest — and we can include New Hampshire as well,” Klobuchar told Sunday’s middle school gym crowd. “We’re going to build a beautiful blue wall around these states, and we’re going to make Donald Trump pay for it.”
… Amy needs Biden to fall apart, swallow his camp, then grab Warren’s supporters who are caught between 1) wanting a progressive and 2) wanting to vote for a woman who has people skills and is capable of compromise (i.e. not wanting to jump ship for Bernie when it’s clear he’s the progressive left standing). She has a path. Then if she can get Biden, Yang and Dave Chapelle to turn out the minority vote in the South she’d be alright!
I think it’ll become more clear that Pete isn’t a moderate. He’s further left than Klobuchar. If she can paint that picture, I think he’ll get stuck between being not progressive enough for Bernie people and not moderate enough for everyone else… or he’ll beat them both by convincing the country that he’s positioned in the sweet spot between both @Crimsonorblue22
@DanR try reloading a couple times or clearing site cache? All routes and assets should be behind ssl at present.
That’s um, something.
He matches my likes! Healthcare and I don’t want the free college loan handouts.
I don’t think free college education or universal healthcare are the answer as one size fits all solutions. I like Yang’s UBI better. That would be flexible, whether your current need is to put it toward health car or college loan.
I like he’s a military guy and smarter than crap. I like that he’s young. I think he’ll surround himself w/great experienced people. I think Bidens losing it, to old.
I like that he’s smart. I don’t know how I feel about him being military, because I’m trying to decide whether I am ok with him serving abroad as a resume builder for his future political career. I heard an interview where he rationalized that he didn’t serve to pad his political resume, but that he’d be disingenous if he said that he didn’t think that experiencing foreign service would help him be a better president, or something like that. Felt Tracy Flick-like to me.
I think Biden’s unraveling too. I also think being a little younger would help him identify better with where the US currently stands, in terms of impending issues and culturally.
Same for Bernie. I feel like his hardliner act is both appealing and slightly out of touch; I don’t know that he grasps the nuances of where America is positioned right now and current American culture, which matters in terms of how electable he is.
Yang by contrast, seems very in touch with where we are. He understands what talking points are impactful with so little time to speak, as well as where we are headed as a country. No one on that stage understands the problem of automation better than Yang, and I think in 4 years you’re going to see a lot of people say “wait a second, this guy was trying to tell us something”. We may see Yang again, with more support.
Klobuchar I think is flexible enough to steer the ship and would also surround herself with excellent people. To me, she looks the most presidential.
I’d love to see any of them debate trump! He won’t do it.
I never considered that he wouldn’t debate. You really think so?
@Crimsonandblue22 like… you like him the best of the Democrats?
He seems like a decent a person, but I didn’t expect the needle to move in his favor over the last few weeks. He doesn’t seem to be winning these debates to me, and I didn’t expect people to turn out for him.
Big 12 marketing is as bad as their TV contracts. Very unconvincing, very uninspiring
Srsly can we get the real leaders of each of the Big 12 teams in the commercial instead of some 30-something dudes in college jerseys pretending to be on the team?
Didn’t notice in pregame, but Jankovich has a walking boot on his right foot. Looks like KU has had some rough practices recently since Mitch has a brace on his right wrist as well.
Hoping Doke will avoid injury at practice.
