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.

RE: Zuby Ejiofor
27 and 24 today dragging his team to a big win. 24 rebounds is insane lol.
And added 4 blocks to go along with that just for giggles & laughs
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: Leipold New Contract
@jayballer67 all I know is suite demand has been strong, so that means we could get a fancier east side than originally thought or maybe they just stick with a more basic setup but add seats. Idk.
That’s fine buddy I understand and appreciate what you do know.-- -I don’t care a fancier East side would be pretty cool to, but then again wouldn’t mind more seating either
RE: BYU Thread
@jayballer67 as @Texas-Hawk-10 said it was a team loss for sure. It’s just sad to see how bad this team is compared to what we thought we had. We all have to survive the down years I suppose. I’m just really worried KSU will mop the floor with us.
It could happen , do I think it will happen ? - Probably not, but have to agree and again it’s because we have become so spoiled to all the really good teams of the past , were just not use to going through this, and it just amplifies this when we do. -Were just so use to winning , sometimes our expectations are just to high. This team just has to many flaws. – Were not that good of a rebounding team , we are below average three point shooting team, and sure if your two point conversion rate is good , which ours is but that isn’t going to hold up when your making two point shots and the other guys are just killing it from the three.
We turn the ball over to much , we go through long extended periods struggling to score the ball - - just lots of flaws with this team. To me Hunter Dickinson was over hyped , I’ve said from day one he was a bad fit for this team. – Like the word Bill uses at times, I think he is soft, and slow. Either he is naturally slow, OR he just lacks the hustle getting down the floor, now if it was any other player jogging down the floor-- -Bill would yank his ass OUT in a heart beat but he knows he is not in a position to do that with Dickinson. With his big body & frame he should be an absolute beast down low. Sure he gets his share of rebounds but how many does he GO GET ? I mean like I’ve heard , a lot of those rebounds practically fall into his lap, but how many does he just take with aggression like - - -THATS MINE ? demand the rebound.- -His numbers have fallen since conference play- -his FT % has crashed dramatically, shooting 85 % in Non Con to around 68 % in Conference games- - we can’t have that. He has went from a lot of talk for National player of the yr— Big 12 player of the year and he isn’t getting either. Yet it’s not ALL Hunter, our lack of success is a total team failure - -we just don’t have it this year.
Our lack of Bench- - - then we have the Morris screw up that we needed for our go and get it bucket maker, a guy that could get his own shot- - probably our only really true 3 point threat, ya Johhny has done ok , actually better for a freshman and actually a kid that’s not even suppose to be in College for another year.
Just an ugly year for us. Goes to show that even true blue bloods can have an off year, and our opponents are eating this up, cause were down. Bill screwed up this year. I think you can see things that are problems. Point production is down, with our better teams when we got out and run , run , run we were averaging in the upper 70’s per - -this year to many high 60’s to low to MAYBE middle 70’s. This loss last night I’m sure probably dropped us to a 4 maybe 5 seed in the Tourney, but let’s be realistic, unless things change , and change quick we will be lucky to make it out of the first Weekend. Good news is better times are ahead in the future for us. You can take it to the bank- -next yr. - -You watch, these teams better enjoy it, now kick us while we are down , THEY BETTER HOPE WE STAY DOWN CAUSE WHEN WE GET BACK UP - - - and we will get back up - -KU IS GOING TO BE KICKING ASS AND TAKIN NAMES -Don’t worry my KU Brothern , the sun still comes up in the East and Sets in the West hang in there it WILL get better- - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
RE: BYU Thread
Go easy on @kuballin10 he’s a 100 percent right regardless of how mad it makes others.
no he is really not- - this team is a lot more horribe then just Juan - -and yet he has got it in for him – didn’t hear nothing then jumped o the chance when w lost always same song
RE: BYU Thread
If Hunter doesn’t hit the top of the 3 key the offense is trash. Every defense goes under every screen set for a pg taking away passing lanes leading to zero threes and 4 turnovers
Kj was bad offensively tonight
Trash performance and now we have an extra game in big 12
Glad we leveled up this year but then again you ain’t win crap when ur D2 pg can’t stay in front of his man and won’t shoot the 3
Bill’s made this bed time to lay in it
Called it in December…no remy bail outs
Get the hell out of here with that crap. - -We hear nothing out of you the entire night and he you come after like a rabid dog after a cat. you are so infatuated on Juan, buddy this was one hell of alot more then juan dam your crap gets old - -between Juan and your hardon for Remy is sickening. time after time , after time. give it a rest for GOD’S sakes man
