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

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

RE: 2023 Recruiting
I know you guys might have stronger sentiments, but my dislike was always for Bruce and not for K. State. I enjoyed the Huggins and Martin years.
Actually in all honesty maybe they will be better, just that much better for the strength of the conference , just that much tougher , no cake walks
RE: 2023 Recruiting

Also thinking kids name was Randle - what happened with him ?-- - --did he ever commit & where to ?
RE: 2023 Recruiting

RE: 2020 Jamari Mcdowell Chris Johnson AAU Teammate
i don’t really think there i that much serious interest from KU’s stand point at this point from with the other possibilities on the table McDowell just doesn’t seem like he would be the one to land here
RE: No matter what team you pull for
Yankees 4 games below .500 since the beginning of July.
struggling in every phase of the game. Of Course hard to keep up the pace they had - -got some pitchers hurt but big thing is they are just not hitting . Of course just about every club goes through a stretch in a 162 game season , they got to get this straightened out
RE: Coach Howard
Snacks is no longer with Texas… what a fall from the top
he has totally wiped everything about Texas from his account it said.- Something happened that’s for sure, maybe got himself in more trouble. It Said Beard had just completed his staff lol. Now short 1 again ahh shucks. Gonna be interesting to see where he ends up. Really Good recruitter just think he has a lot more on his plate
RE: Conference realignment
Well this is certainly interesting. Now let’s get this out there before we get accused of blowing things out of the water before it goes anywhere - -we all know there is nothing in this that will happen but if it’s true and parties believe it is , it’s good to see we have a new Commish that isn’t gonna sit still and watch all of this pass us by. - -Now here is what I heard within the last hour. Actually read and heard
There is a report that came out from St Paul Minnesota , from the Pioneer Gazette I guess that our New Commish had reached out to the University of Minnesota to see if they had any interest in possibly joining the Big 12. - Now the guy says or people feel if he reached out to Minnesota makes them feel they weren’t the only Schools. They said now what if he reached out to the Western quad of the Big ten ? - - Schools like Minnesota — Iowa - - -Wisconsin - - & Nebraska ?
Now like they also said we know that these Schools probably would have no interest, probably just going to take the money & run. but they said from a Social media stand point wonder how that would look ? - – Because what those schools ar facing now is having to make several trips out to the Western Coast area’s - -how is that going to end up working out ? - - Hmmmm makes you wonder .
Like we said at the beginnning and the people said also , we know there is nothing to this BUT - It’s good to know that we have a Commish that is going to refuse to just sit still& he is going to be out and touching all bases-- all possibilities for the conference. - for me myself , I like tht , I want an active guy thats willing to get after it and protect our conference
RE: Fall Camp Thread
@FarmerJayhawk One thing is , were gaining depth. - -Bodies, but not just any body for a body - -we are starting to get athletic bodies. guys that can compete. Coach really went heavy on defense this year through portal and such - -
I didn’t realize that our Ol did as well as it did last year, read something about we actually gave up the least sacks in the Big 12 last year. - I think if our D-Line improves , if we can get more pressure from our edge we gonna be fine. - -We have added a lot in our line bakers/ safety spot, like how this is starting to shape up.
Think Coach knows what he wants and how he is going about it - -building that foundation a brick at a time --I Really like this Coach, this Coach knows what it’s going to take to get this program turned around and he is following his plan and I think it will work
