Ok , sit back and let this sink in for a minute - Crazy numbers
OK guys , sit back and absorb these numbers for a minute. - You have to go back WAY BACK since the last time KU lost a league opener. It has been 10,938 days since KU lost in a league opener Jan 8 , 1991 - -right at THIRTY YEARS since we lost a league opener. Jan 8 , 1991 was the last time against Oklahoma , those numbers are insane.
Even more crazy during that time, the most impressive part is that during that span 60 % of those wins came on the road AND 33 % against ranked teams during that span.
The ranked teams we beat during this 30 year span : - -# 13 Missouri , # 17 Missouri , # 24 TCU , # 9 Oklahoma State , # 23 K-state , # 21 Baylor , # 23 Baylor , # 23 Oklahoma , # 16 West Virginia , & # 14 Texas Tech - -Stop and think about that for awhile. - -don’t think ANYONE else in Americas cna come close to those numbers. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
Ya Know still find it hard to believe some still want less Marcus
Marcus is just fine. Numbers don’t lie , the kid averages 5 rebounds a game from a guard spot - - -he has a 3.6 assist avg - -THAT breaks down to a 3-1 turnover assist ration which leads the team. ( 32-11 )
Leads the team in Steals , Who would of thought this - -Marcus also leads the team in free throw % 86.4 % from the line- -( 19 - 22 ) from the line look how he has improved not even close in this cat the next closest is shooting 80 %
Remember when people cringed when he would shoot the ball ? - - remember when people said he was a non factor on the offensive end ? - -how he was a liability ? - -how they wouldn’t even guard Marcus ? now shooting the 3 at a 42 % clip = - - - pretty dam decent - improved dramatically - -Yet people want him to sit more - -we have to have Marcus on the floor. Brings leadership and an all around game -no body better defensively and numbers show he takes care of the ball 11 turnovers in 9 games - -plzzzzzz who is better? - -it’s cool you want him to sit - -that’s on you Me Myself I’ll take a Marcus Garrett any day of the week. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
Today really puts things in perspective for me
Well guys , you all know I have been here for a minute now. Had some great threads from people , had some discussions - - some heated - - some not , but after the news I received today all seems minor.
My wife is on Oxygen 24/7 - -has really Severe COPD & forgive me for the spelling as that is not one of my great strengths & but the wife also has emphysma again sorry know that’s not right
Well she went to the lung doctor the other day , has been saying her lungs sound good , so she comes home and a little later phone rings and it’s the Lung Doctor himself asking the wife if she had some minutes to where she could talk. You have to know when the specialist himself calls – not one of his staff , but the Doctor himself - - it can’t be good.
So he proceeds to tell her that after she left he had went back through all her hospitalizations & Dr visits & treatments he was checking cause he said as severe as her COPD is – her emphysma should be just as bad and it wasn’t anywhere close. Soooo he checked some things and told her - - she has a diease & it’s an incurable diease But he wanted her to take a blood test as she had never been tested - - she has it but he wants to see how bad , test her to see if it turned positive or negative to the degree so they could figure out their next step to try and fight/and or control.
So she took the test yesterday , they said if it comes back Negative then they can help control through medicine. If it comes back POSITIVE- - - - - not good , then chances are she will need a liver transplant. - This is called ALPHA -1 has something to do with the liver not filtering out CO-2 like it should , so if she needs a liver transplant more likely then not - we all know how long of wait that can be and the whole process
So I guess what I’m really saying is - -if you feel it in your heart , if you believe - -we could sure use your prayers / – your thoughts. Really puts life and every thing else into perspective makes you realize there are bigger things in life then sports. - -makes for some long days - - don’t know what I would do if something happened - -would be lost , she is quite a bit younger then me - - I’m 66 - - She is 53. - -should find out the results in about two weeks - -gonna be a long two weeks. - Thanks for listening my friends - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
RE: Gonzaga Game Thread
Well think it was pretty easy to see why we got beat today , It can be fixed for sure, and I know it will be addressed for sure. - - our Defense just killed us today , not sure how many time we were beaten for easy layups - - break downs. - -that was a reason I really think our main reason & then we had NO ANSWER for the Big’s which I was afraid of before the game.
McCormack once he got that 1st foul you might as well taken him out then as he just played like he was too afraid to pick the 2nd lay up after lay up against him.
I liked the fight , the way the guys came back- but just costly turnovers , no defense, getting beat back down the flor.
Wilson done some good things but he also hurt us at critical time too. - Things I think we will get better at were going to be all right - knew they would score quite a bit they love to score - - alot. - have to look at it as just one game - -I forgot we turn around and play again tomorrow - - time to go to work get these things ironed out now.

The other thread pretty lengthy - new one Covid
I heard this , this afternoon from our governor’s Press conference. I know most people won’t care , won’t take the time to read , but still going to post anyways. If people think this stuff is made up , fake - the question becomes how many have to die before you understand this is the real deal.
Here in Kansas this COVID is on the up tick for sure 17 other States in same position. - They are talking in NY - - New Jersey - - & Conn NOT to be traveling into these places , California once AGAIN in trouble sounds like
Just since Monday two days ago today Kansas has reported 1,468 New Cases and 25 more Deaths. The total since the beginning is now over 74, 500 cases and over 900 deaths…
Governor Kelly said they are having talks about a bi-partisan bill mandating face masks throughout, said should be much easier to pass as they now know more and it’s been proven that face masks work and gave multiple scenario’s to back it up. - -Said it’s time for this to quit being political and take care of people now.
She said people who thought that this would never reach rural Counties now feeling the effect , as 2/3 of all cases now are outside of th Wichita & Kansaas City area’s
Really bad situation in Norton County - - they have had 10 people die from the Nursing home and on top of that ALL 52 residents in the Nursing home have tested positive - - EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT on top of some Staff. - -Norton Correctional facility has 154 inmates confirmed with COVID and then Some staff members - -Stating Norton right now taking into account Population ration is leading the ENTIRE NATION .
This thing is really pretty simple guys to help stiffle this crap at least help - - - WEAR the Dam MASK. I mean I hate the dam things too BUT come on try and grow up, quit being the little I’ll show them - - I’ll do what I want attitude and just wear the dam thing - it’s not that hard uncomfortable , nuisance ? - -Hell ya it is but I mean dam - -it’s not just about you - - it’s about Wives - - -Brothers - - -Sisters - - - Sons - - Daughters - - Co- Workers - - Neighbors - -your best friend - -time to quit being close minded and realize this crap is real.
The 1st time round when Kelly mandated the mask order 90 counties opted out - - we see the results -we went from like 8, ooo and some to over 74,00 and jumped for 200 plus deaths to now over 900 pretty simple mathmatics - - Helth offical said there is NOTHING that is going to be Normal for us again until at least July 2021.
Anyways hope at least ONE will take the time to read , Ya It’s getting old - -but that’s the problem to many people just ignoring thinking this is just going to go away - that is not a winning formula against this
RE: Feeling pretty fortunate today/ Blessed - puts things in perspective
Glad your wife is physically OK! Hope and prayer you two will get over the mental trauma quickly! Prayers for you and praise for the QT employee. I hope he gets recognized by QT and the public.
thank you for that , ya she was pretty shook up just really blessed - I’ am just so Thankful. - I was out for my walk & I heard the shots so I wanted to call her to tell her to be careful and when I talked to her she said she was just getting ready to call me.-
Like I was saying a minute or two later so would of been backing out and the way she would be headed she would of been T-boned and like 100 % probability of the truck being riddled with gun shots - - we are trying to figure how we can or do something for the Quik shop employee. - Just a kid like 21-22 yrs old - he said all he could see was his GranPa cause he GrandPa got shot I guess , and he said I was just thinking to protect my wife rather he be the one get shot then her - -hell of a kid - -thanks again for your thoughts
