Just throwing this out for the Holiday
Just a pinch early guys - -BUT just wishing a very Merry Christmas to all my KU Comrads - I know not everyone can celebrate the Holiday like they want , being able to connect with family - - I’m sorry I know has to stink , BUT just be safe and take care of yourself and get to feeling better our Jayhawks need each and everyone of you.
Get yourself healthy and get back in the game big days ahead. - Soooo MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY and we will see you on the other side. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
This is what being spoiled gets you
Have to say and all know I really get wrapped up in games , I cuss the guys call some names I didn’t even realize I had in my vocabulary lol.
THEN after a cooling off period I realize I’m probably to hard on the kids. Just not use to losing, they have spoiled me - -spoiled us all. I mean 13 Straight yrs of Conference Championships , how many straight weeks in the top 25 ? - How many straight NCAA appearances ? - the last two references holds the record for longest in Nation - - that’s how you get spoiled.
So we have this year , guys just aren’t as good , not as Athletic however were not alone by any means. Here is a little something the other bluebloods suck this yr also, were actually better then some of them. Duke 7-6 and just showed tonight Duke 0-3 against Quad 1 Competition - - o-3 against Quad 2 Competition and has like a 20.5 % chance of even making the Tourney.
This Saturday will mark the 1st time since 1960 that when Duke & North Carolina play one another - - -neither will be ranked.
Look at Kentucky like 6-10 - -they are not making the tourney unless they just go insane - - - Hell Michigan State suck this year too , Michigan St scores 37 points can’t shoot worth a dam - - 37 points against Rutgers - - Tonight the newly ranked # 9 Oklahoma had 18 points at Half against # 10 TT ugly ugly game.
Jerry Palm made a good point on CBS sports , talked about WHY KU was still in the rankings with 6 losses and how they are dropping in the Bracketology but dropping slowly , STILL in their latest bracketology KU is a # FIVE SEED 11-6 on the season and STILL a 5 seed. The Reason ?
KU is 4-5 against Quad 1 opponents big difference. - -just boils down to we are so use to all these wins , some blowouts - -good shooting then we have ONE year of a bad team not super bad but far from what we have had in past and we just can’t seem to comprehend why it feels - looks so bad. The Reason - - Because were just not use to losing, of having this type of season - -just are not use to seeing the guys struggle. It comes from being spoiled - - were KU that just doesn’t happen SPOILED - I know I have realized I have - - I know I’m not the only one here that hasn’t been. – Better times coming - -stay strong my friends, we will get through this. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BAB Y
Just wanted to jump on here before the game today 10 O’Clock geez lol. Anyways wanting to wish all my fellow KU friends a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and enjoy all the yummies Turkey or whatever it is , just enjoy your day enjoy family but more importantly - -see you on the other side , be safe everyone watch out for the idiots on the roads if you travel - we need you to help pull for the Hawks. Have a GREAT DAY. - -ROCK CHALK MY FRIENDS

RE: Miami Hurricanes Game Thread
@BShark they can bite me. Mcgusty from 1st half to 2nd half? Yeah.
Best half we have played all year.
That defensive intensity at the start of the 2nd half - - MERCY
Well Guys this buckets guy glad to be alive tonight/blessed
Well guys, still kinda shook , just thanking GOD giving praise that I’m still here - -still alive. – I was at mu house in my back yard with my dog-- I was sitting on the ground cleaning some steps from all the excess dirt and such for spring when gun fire popped off REALLY CLOSE & i DO MEAN CLOSE the gun shots were so close I actually heard the whizzing of a bullet fly by my head - -dead serious it was that close. I hit the ground laid flat as flat could be and then I heard a shot hit a house. So after they stopped I hollered at my next door Neighbour and elderly lady to see if she had heard them and if she was all right.
She said a round had actually hit her TV in the house , the police was called and they came and investigated found out where the bullet hit and went through the house and hit her TV. she was really lucky as if she had been sitting in her recliner she would of been shot. Police talked to us for awhile and I told them where I thought the shots came from - like 6-7 house down from me on same side of the street.
They said they was going to talk to them , so they did and I looked down and noticed one of the Cruisers was parked Diagonal across our street blocking the street with it’s red and blues on - plus two other units well after awhile they came back to talk more to us and said they had found 19 shell casings - -NINETEEN said they had to come from an AR Assault rifle. they asked if we wanted to press charges and my neighbor and I both said we were afraid of retaliation. they said they understood and didn’t have to decide right now. - -They came back and got my Neighbors TV for evidence going to get the bullet out of the TV Said they had pretty good evidence and something I had no idea they said they could get DNA from the casings - -saying they had to have their fingers on the rounds to load the rifle.
Then I said I was going to check the truck to make sure it was locked up and the wife said to check and make sure our truck hadn’t got hit - - walked around on the passenger side of the truck and sure enough the truck did ge hit, and then there was a round that hit our house too. they said we got lucky that the ruck must of deflected the round up into the top of the house cause if it wouldn’t have it would of went right through the wall and would of hit my wife where she was sitting on the couch - GOD is watching ove us - -very scary just thanking GOD for protecting my wife and me both - I’m am not lying I’m still shook

Expansion heating up again. BIG/SEC
Hey buddy Farmer , I know last time I brought this up you just said absolute no interest in Big 12. - So yes you were right and looks like you friends were telling you correct - -No interest in Big 12 what so ever.
Well looks like we are finding out why. According to multiple sources valid /reliable sources - -not click bait , sever solid SEC sources saying that there are FOUR schools looking to break away from the ACC Multiple Sources now reporting - -could be coming as early as October Clemson Stating they might have a statement. - The four Schools that have a dislike for the ACC because of the media deals Clemson - - -Florida State - - UNC - - -& Virginia. - Talking about going to either BIG or SEC as a block of four , so you was right no BIG 12
I’ve seen Three so far reports from different place since coming out today - way to much Smoke , looks like this is the beginning of the end for the ACC. -Those Schools leave they in Big trouble, I think chances are in time with the implosion and it IS going to happen you can take it to the bank the ACC is the next Conference to bite the bullet. Again they want THREE Mega Conferences - -the BIG – The SEC - -& The Big 12. Sources say they think these Schools have found a way to get around this dam GOR that runs till 2036, so guess we can sit back and watch it all unfold right before our eyes
If and when this happens and like the Statement from Clemson says could be in October , I think Yormork and the Big 12 has a solid shot for Lousville - -Pitt - - NC State - - & Virginia Tech
RE: 2024 Recruiting
Could you both please get together somewhere and just measure? We need to move on…
Sorry everyone, I knew better and did it anyways lol. When’s the season start?
Don’t worry soon enough we’ll be back to the sky is falling, Harris can’t shoot, Hunter isn’t worth the money, Elmarko was really a 5 star recruit?, KJ should play the 3, Bill can’t coach, Kevin is Kevin, Timberlake is supposed to be the greatest shooter since the beginning of time and can’t piss in the ocean, why can’t the Aussie play more, Mcdowell is too small, Zach shouldn’t redshirt and why did all the talent go to Christian and not rub off on Parker. Sound about right?
Dam you nailed that. I’m trying to think of ANY you might of missed - - -hmmmmm, NOPE I think that pretty well got it covered. – - Good looking out lmao
RE: Schedule Discussion
Pretty brutal schedule and I do worry about depth with the Morris bullcrap.
Non-Conference- Kentucky, UConn, Maui (which is loaded), Methzu, road game vs Indiana.
Conference-new Road Foe’s; UCF and Houston (to end season). New Home Foe’s; Cincinnati, BYU, Houston.
Play home/away- Kansas St, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Baylor, Houston.
Play only once on the road- West Virginia, Texas Tech, Iowa St.
Play only once at home- TCU, Texas, Cincinnati, BYU.
Play Baylor twice in 3 weeks with the road game a Noon tipoff, that’s awful scheduling.
Big Monday- 3 games, home vs Natti, on the road against K-St, Tech. ESPN loves to put us on the road on Big Monday due to Self’s dominance.
ya I’m with you , I’m worried about depth. Especially towards the middle/end of the Season. We know these games almost everyone is a dam war Keep your fingers crossed no injuries, I personally don’t think we can afford to red shirt anybody this year – - Morris has seen to that, gonna be interesting
RE: 2024 Recruiting
@jayballer67 absolutely we have a shot. KU always NAILS visits, and we have the best coach in the sport. Never doubt these guys on the trail.
that’s very true, seems when Bill goes all in - - -Bill goes all in , If we could somehow pull the rabbit out of the hat – land him would be beyond Awesome. Doesn’t hurt he is coming on late night, seems to always leave an impression in recruiting. - -Only bad thing is Duke gets the last visit -fingers crossed
RE: 2024 Recruiting
Ok, so I’m asking this question and not trying to be a smart ass or anything close BUT just a serious innocent question ? opinion. So don’t take it the wrong way, Just really curious Does anyone REALLY think we have a legit shot at Cooper Flagg ? - -Or is his visit just a courtesy visit and he just taking using up his free official visits?
Like I said I would love to have Flagg for sure, I just really think though we have about of much chance of him coming here as me becoming the Pope tomorrow. - -just fel he is a Duke lock, Duke has been his School that he has wanted forever, just can’t see why he would change his mind
Somebody change my mind , reasons why he chooses us intead of the School h has wanted or like forever.
RE: Schedule Discussion
Conference schedule is fire - -holy crap. – - Yet our NON CON sure the hell isn’t no cupcake either. - U Conn on there Indiana , Kentucky , Possibly Marquette - possible UCLA ,Purdue , Syracuse - -then lesser I know but even Mizzery - that all adds up to exactly not playing cream puff city - -BUT Bill NEVER has backed away from good challenges
