If they shut down Perry Ellis again, we have no chance.

RE: Time For Self To Kill C5
Did anyone actually watch the last ten-ish minutes of the Tech game?
Definitely slower pace with Lucas in, but I’d say we played more under control with Lucas in the game than with either Bragg or Diallo (and definitely without Greene flying around).
The quarter of the game where you WIN, net production doesn’t matter.
Tied 44-44. What did Lucas do?
10:03 Lucas post layup
8:52 Lucas screen for Mason made 3
8:31 Lucas boxout, fouled on defensive rebound
8:10 Lucas screen on Svi missed 3
6:02 Lucas assist on Selden jam
5:04 Lucas screen for Mason made 3
3:20 Lucas bounce pass to SVI who missed the dunk, made 1 FT
2:25 Lucas screen for Selden’s made 3
1:42 Lucas ssist/lob for Ellis jam
On Devonte’s layup at 1:08 Lucas screened Selden’s guy and Selden would have had an easy dunk if Devonte needed to dish of the ball. By that point the game was won.
Lucas got scored on a couple times in the 2-4 minute range, but other than that, I understand why Self is comfortable with Lucas out there. He knows exactly where he’s supposed to be.
Until Diallo figures that out, it’s going to be Lucas.
Ostertag on Ice
Being a retired professional basketball player sounds pretty rough. Greg Ostertag–bored with golfing every day–decided to become the world’s tallest hockey player.
“I’ll be the first to admit that I never reached my full potential as a basketball player. I took it for granted that I was 7 feet tall, and I rode that.”
Yeah, well we all kind of figured that!
RE: Jesus Christ, can we please push the reset button on 2020?
I love the masks. Haven’t had to trim my nose hairs in months! Thanks to my expressive eyebrows and dancing eyes I’m still able to connect personally with people in Menards, Dillons, the liquor store… well, that’s pretty much it.

RE: The "crap on Biden" thread.
I think Harris is GREAT. I would’ve voted for her in the primary if she’d still been on the ballot in KS. All the people I know to the left or right of me can’t actually say specifically what they don’t like about her… it’s always about something someone else might think “Well, black guys aren’t going to vote for her because of her AG record…” Too progressive (no specifics), not progressive enough (no specifics). I honestly don’t know know what that is about…mostly that comes from guys but a few women too, so I don’t think it’s a fragile male ego thing.
She’s tough. She’s smart. She has a sense of humor (indicative to me as having a soul). She mows people down who are ass-clowns, OK–That’s what I want.
Who would have been a better pick? Warren? Whitmer, Jim Webb?
RE: I can’t access this on my MacBook Air anymore.
@wissox Guessing you’re using Safari. Download Chrome or Firefox on your Air. KUBuckets.com works fine on those browsers. (I’ve not been able to use Safari on my desktop, macbook pro or phone for months… except for one time a few days ago.)
RE: I am curious as to your opinions - life back to normal or stay shutdown
Interesting original question. It’s easy if it’s someone else that had to go play football or teach or be around a lot of other people.
My wife’s uncle died Sunday (not covid). Great guy. One state over… big full Catholic Mass funeral on Thursday with a couple hundred kinfolk. So… go back to normal and hug a bunch of Missourians who have not been social distancing and think Covid is a big hoax, or stay shut down… Hmmm.
Surfin' again on Safari!
WHHAAATT? Hey, went to my reflexive “buckets” bookmark in Safari (Mac), and the site loaded! I haven’t updated anything, so I assume you did, @approxinfinity – thanks! . I’ve been using Chrome for a few months only for this site.
More excited than I probably should be about this, but good things are hard to come by these days. RCJH
Billy Mills Article
Do Jayhawk fans remember Billy Mills? I hadn’t heard of him until a few years ago when Lawrence renamed South Middle School after him.
Anyway, whether you know his story or not, this is a pretty good article:
RE: Differentiating fact from opinion on COVID-19
Here’s my K-12 plan: Go back to the old rural school model on a neighborhood scale. All grades taught in each location by one or two teachers with a bunch of online components. No more than 20 or 30 kids per “school.” Keep siblings together. No buses. That way if you get an outbreak, it’s limited to maybe a dozen households instead the entire town.
