@KUSTEVE in the grand scheme of things, does it matter? like the past few years - we will: Win the B12; Extend the streak; Lose in the dance; Repeat.

RE: The great Debate?
Ok so let the arguement begin. Could UK, UNC, or Duke duplicate what KU has done these last 13 years? If UK, UNC, or Duke were in the Big 12 would they be on the cusp of setting the record for the most consecutive conference championships?
Duke, UNC, UK don’t care and that’s why they wouldn’t be able to replicate KUs streak. These programs have made it pretty clear- all they care about are championships and they make sure all their recruits know it also. Conf wins/streak is a nice to have, but, since Self is a steak guy, i use this analogy:
you go to a steak restaurant for the steak, not for the appetizers. Sure the appetizers help and the joint can have the best tasting appetizers consistently each and every day, but they will always (rightfully so) be judge on their steak.
RE: some pretty incredible numbers
Ran across this, some of these numbers are just crazy. the number of days since each Big 12 school has defeated KU in Basketball:
TCU - - - -112 - - - Iowa State - - - -145- - - -WV- - - -156, now it starts getting crazy:- - - - Okla St- - - -527- - - -Real Crazy- - - - OU - - - - 845- - - - Kansas St- - - - 857- - -now just insane - - - - Texas- - - - 1244- - - - BU - - - - 1578- - - -TTU- - - - 3059
These last Three are just off the charts -totally crazy - -just goes to show add whole new definition to the word Dominence lol. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG
if only these wins translated into titles
RE: Bill Self's "Big Ego," prohibits the Border War.
Time for El Poyo to check in again.
Actually, i already posted this on earlier threads! we need to avoid this like the plague. Just imagine the embarrassment if we lose (ala WSU). There is no way we would be able to live it down. There is nothing to gain here, and everything to lose. I say we steer clear and continue to pound on the big 12.
RE: HOW BILL SOLVED THE RUBIK'S CUBE
If we lose again in the 2nd round, will you say Bill has solved the Rubik’s cube then???
The point is Bill will have solved the Rubik’s cube once he wins a national championship!!! There’s no other way to look at it. Big 12 streak is cute, but its no championship. We can sit here and say he’s solved the rubik’s cube and give him his dues only for the hawks to falter early in the NCAA tourney!!
RE: Josh to Celtics #1?
Well in my up bringing I’ve seen women that would rattle your teeth. Hey I’m not condoning violence against women. Yet trying to paint JJ as a women beater is weak. He kicked a car door. Geez dude.
you are right. Its Vick who’s the woman beater
RE: Josh to Celtics #1?
@REHawk Josh has handled his mistakes extremely well and should be an example to others. Who amongst us didn’t do something equally stupid when we were young.
Yes…kicking in car doors and trying to verbally assault women are everyday offenses for guys! boys will be boys afterall…you realize this is KU and not MU and KSU!!! our guys are held to a different standard ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE THE TOP 1-3 PICKS IN THE NBA!!!
The image of Josh, his mom and his lawyer leaving Lawrence municipal court spoke volumes.
Yes, lets forget the fact that he had to hire a lawyer and go to court but instead, applaud him for having to follow the law!!!
Josh took responsibility for his offense, accepted the court’s punishment and now talks about how the anger management counseling has helped him.
Yes, he did take responsibility long after it was brought to light what he did. He didn’t voluntarily take responsibility.
I’M JUST SHOCKED!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS BOARD!! ITS TURNING INTO THE PHOG. ALL WE ARE DOING IS MAKING EXCUSES AND COVERING UP FOR OUR GUYS…THIS IS TURNING STRAIGHT UP INTO A MIZZOU BOARD. OUR GUYS CAN DO NO WRONG!!! GIVE THEM MEDALS AND COOKIES AND IF ANY ONE DARE EVEN LIFT AN EYELID, ATTACK THEM. THIS IS FLAT OUT DISGRACEFUL.
