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!

This is actually pretty cool. Worth a look
RE: KU Basketball lowering Season Ticket Prices
I’m guessing at least half, if not more, of the longtime (old) season ticket holders will skip next season, so here’s your chance if you’ve been dying to get some good seats.
If you are young and don’t know the traditions, no “whooing” during the chant, don’t leave before the buzzer, and no storming the court… ever.
RE: Global Pandemic of Boredom
I still have work that fills about half my days, but I actually feel busier than usual. It’s weird. Maybe because my wife is working at home too… and there seems to be so many meals to make, and the DISHES.
During the extra time during the day…
Planted a bunch of in-ground lettuce and some potted tomatoes. Not enough sun for a big garden. Started painting again (I do have a degree in fine art, LOL) Running more miles Probably drinking more beer… well, maybe the same, but at home instead of out at a brewpub (picking up growlers and cans from a local breweries each week).
I’ve been really uninspired by most of the TV streaming series except for some British stuff (End of the F***ing World, Flea Bag, Happy Valley, Sex Education). Too much violence, crime, drug cartel stuff in all the American dramas (seems out of touch at this point), and the British acting is just so much better. Less violence. More sex. Better acting. Easy trade.
Also… extra walks with the dog. She seems pretty happy with the pack situation.
RE: Former Kansas football coach says he lost his chance at Texas job after KU athletic director intervened
If one sentence shows what a joke this whole lawsuit is, it’s gotta be this:
After Long’s call, Beaty said, the job offer seemed to be off the table — and Beaty has since had to make a living as an Uber driver and motivational speaker.
RE: Life after flattening?
9-18 months. “Opening the country” means JACK SQUAT until we have fast widespread testing available (or a vaccine/cure). Nothing has changed since the first known case. Imagine a social reboot with a half a million known carriers instead of just a handful. It boggles the mind.
I expect the second wave in the US will be worse than the first
