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.

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

RE: Jayhawks in the pros
Devonte being Devonte , sure made a little boy happy. Devonte gave the boy his Pelican game shoes WOW what a great guy, always loved the guy seemed like he was always smiling ear to ear. Will never forget his Senior speech so emotional.
Gave the boy his shoes. The kid tweeted or something saying thank you so much and that how he was now going to have to get his dad to buy Devonte’s Jersey so he could wear it to every game lol. - -The boy had a regular shirt and it had Graham name on the back - -taking it Devonte must be his hero lol - -Gotta love it
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
I have to say I'm glad for Silvio
True Silvio screwed up here, never really fit in as making poor decisions. Yet glad to se he is doing well now. Playing for Chattanooga & they are 9-1 - Silvio averaging 13.4 ppg & 6.6 rebounds that’s a very solid line hope it turns out well for him - after all he was part of Jayhawk Nation - - -Who knows they may just get an invite to the Big Dance
RE: Coach K to retire after 21-22 season
It was fun rewatching that clip.
It doesn’t even seem to have happened when you talk with sports media. It is a game totally underappreciated by everyone but Kansas fans. That was one helluva game and the comeback was monumental… even though forgotten and swept under the rug of everyone NOT Kansas. Pity the poor fools. We all just love good ball, including games not including Kansas.
true , almost like in 88 with Danny and the Miracles. Who ever thought KU had a chance to beat Oklahoma in that game? That was even including some KU fans , All I remember alot of was how Billy Packer kept saying how it was a big mistake for KU to try and run with Oklahoma in the 1st half and the half ended at 50-50 I know this might sound crazy , but I almost believe we had that Championship at the half. Why is that ? - -Because I think we had got into Oklahoma’s heads , thinking these guys think they can run with us, this is OUR game. Then when we matched them point for point and even at the half playing their style , got them to thinking what it took to run us out.
I think that was another game where ho one really appreciated how well we played that game other then KU fans and so many players coming up clutch. Of course Danny was Danny. but so many other role players came up big. The one I remember most was Clint Normore - -A FOOTBALL PLAYER hitting a huge shot from the top of the key latet, just love that game. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
RE: First Impressions from last night
Not really quite sure where all the hate of Mitch’s playing is coming from. - -Mitch is the heart to this team , the soul of this team just because he doesn’t go out and score 20 and grab 13 rebounds and 4 blocks people seem to want to jump on the Mitch is Garbage.
Mitch is far from being a flashy player - - -Mitch is no Huge Scoring Machine – Mitch is no glass cleaner , what Mitch IS though I’ll tell you AGAIN. Mitch IS a player that will give 110 % , more then I can say for a lot of these players present & Past. - -Mitch is a guy that is not afraid to get dirty , the guy that doesn’t get the glamour & Mitch doesn’t care if he doesn’t get that glamour , I’ll tell you WHAT MITCH IS though Mitch is a Kansas Jayhawk 150 % thru and thru. Mitch eats , sleeps , drinks KU ball , he loves this university. A lot of the others just go through the motions half ass. they will put in their 3-4 yrs and never be seen or heard from again.
Have we ever seen Mitch get pulled over for a DUI - -ever gotten in a fight at a Bar , ever been accused or was part of a group that was doing drugs or even accused of it ? -Ever been accused of hitting a woman ? - -or even worse. has Mitch ever been one of the guys shooting BB air guns and getting in Trouble ? - -( does the Morris Brothers ring a bell }- The answer is a resounding NO. What Mitch is he is a guy that comes to practice works his ass off to the best of his ability just like anyone else -Mitch plays to his capibilities , does anyone here really believe Mitch could do a hell of a lot more ? - Come on - -be real
What we HAVE seen though is Mitch saving another players ass after that player has gotten beat by catching up and blocking the shot from behind saving a sure cinch bucket , by one of our players getting beat. What we do see is Mitch giving his body up making the attempt anyways of drawing that Charge , What we DO SEE Mitch do is diving on the floor for loose balls , What we do see from Mitch is getting that rebound sometimes Big rebounds - -We see Mitch scoring some every now and then. - Most of all we have seen repeatedly Mitch coming up with that Block
Hell no Mitch isn’t some stud scoring machine - -not a huge rebounder but important rebounder- and what Mitch is most of all is - - he is and KU Jayhawk and he LOVES the school - - loves his team mates -Mitch get’s it and is proud to play fr KU - -he loves it - -I for one and maybe one of the few I am very glad Mitch is part of this team - -part of Any KU team , be his playing time is 2 minutes on the floor OR 15 minutes on the floor - -I wish we had MORE kids like Mitch who enjoys being a part of KU I mean really enjoys playing for Coach Self and doing what he can - - Doing the Dirty work nobody else wants to do. The block , the Charge , the loose Ball the rebound If I Coached a team I would love for Mitch to be part of that team. - I just don’t get the ill feelings towards him, the hatred seeing him on the floor. Everyone has a part to play - -Mitch’s part is the un-seen , the non glamorous things - the dirty work. - Dam Mitch doesn’t need to score - or shouldn’t have to Score - - we so I’ve been told we have plenty of Scorers we should have to rely on Mitch for that ever – I just don’t get it Dam

RE: Bill Self "growth stunter"
I really like this team! Maybe someone needs to spike the water jug with testosterone (joke). Anything to bring out some alpha in all our guys.

RE: OU, Texas to the SEC?
Some scuttlebutt KU to the B1G will be done by the end of the week. I’m taking it with a Hutch Salt Mine sized grain of salt.
Enough to make you go Hmmmmmmm though huh Famer ? - You know & I know we ( KU ) can’t afford to just sit back and be passive on this. This thing is REAL - - very REAL , and we sure don’t want to be caught with our pants down. - - The B1G is more likely then not our best option. Geographically wise , and IF this is true let’s just hope we don’t have to match up against the Ohio States - the Michigan’s to much in football lol. - -I think Coach Leipold will be fine BUT let’s be honest having to play those guys and try to be competitive at this point could be ugly - - -real ugly, which in turn could very well have that trickle down effect on the team Moral wise/ confidence wise.
Basketball Wise - - psssst please right - -we will match up with anybody in the B1G basketball wise. would make for some very entertaining games. - -We shall see, I myself think this is ALL going to snowball very quickly. - I just do not think there is any chance in hell this league is still around till 2025. I fully believe that OU & Texas will be playing SEC in 2022 - - cause I think this league will be gone by 2022. just my thoughts. - - the Big 12 days are numbered and they are little numbers -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.

RE: 2022 Recruiting Thread
A very interesting development could be happening with a 22 recruit on KU’s radar. Don’t think this recruit ends up here but this would be a positive development that would help. Will quote this post once official.
You’ve got to stop with the Mad Hatter/Gollum routine of speaking in riddles. Just say it, man!
LMAO - - In BSharks spare time he played the Riddler on Batman lol
RE: 2022 Recruiting Thread
Found this off Rivals site this morning on his commit thought I’d share what they said : - - this was on what they said KU was getting in Udeh.
A guy that plays even bigger then his massive frame due to his wingspan. Not just a bully under the glass , possesses plus athleticism which he uses in the post , and when it comes to impacting games on the glass. Says Ernest was a walking Double , Double this summer , some finesse around the bucket finishes with both creativity and regularity. Is a willing defende and Udeh’s size and athleticism allows him to change and block shots.
What Udeh said about KU : - - You can tell that the fan base really loves the players. It is really a blessing , because everyone knows they are a big time school and for me to be getting that kind of recognition is really an honor. - - -I think we are going t like this guy - - like him a lot
OK so now the Question becomes
So it’s already been brought up, so I guess might as well ask, now the question becomes - -does Jalen play next weekend burning his Red-Shirt ? - OR do we keep him out of these last two games ?
Sorry guys but from my standpoint - - my view I would have to say - if Bean is ready - -we hold Jalen, he going to be to vital for us I believe. I mean we not going to go to any Bowls this year or anything like that - -Save Daniels and he will still have 3 years. You can see with the only exception where the ball got tipped , no INT looked pretty good on the roll out’s -why waste a year for 3 games?
This program is making headway – making strides last year we were winless -this year we got 2 wins and a Big 12 road win. - We Beat Texas and we played Oklahoma tough/close. Here in Jayhawk Country we call that progress - have to crawl before we walk and guys we are about to take that 1st step. - -just my opinion we save Jalen , what you think ?
You got to be encouraged , yes were behind but we ARE making strides. k obviously our defense isn’t there yet but you can still see flashes even with them. I like Coach L , I think he has made strides in his 1st year with no spring practice or whatever the hell it was lol. Give this guy a full yr with the team , a full recruiting cycle - be interesting how we fare in the portal, how many of these Seniors will come back for that extra yr. Heard there gonna be some.
Think Lance is gonna bring some fans back , just love the guys approach , think we FINALLY got it right with a Coach. I’m actually looking forward to next year. - Think some teams are going to start to realize we are not going to be that automatic pushover anymore
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

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: Streaks in Jeopardy???
Well another take on these streaks that KU has lost in the past couple of years. I think and it’s been said by others also and that si - - I don’t think you will ever see these streaks broken by another team - - so even though ours got snapped we will STILL hold those records. - -Your not going to see any other team win 14 straight Conference Championships in a row, having said that though this might be the one closest to getting snapped. Gonzaga playing in that pathetic Conference they play in that could happen for that streak.
The others like our 231 straight weeks being ranked in the top 25 -no one was even close to that streak - -were talking like 12 straight years of being ranked , that happening now in this era won’t happen. - it’s safe.
Then our streak for which we hold the record and still going straight NCAA appearances I think we are at 30 right ? - - Duke I believe was the next closest and their streak is going to be broken this year & like I said our streak for this is still going and unless the NCAA bans us likely to continue for some time yet.
At the end of the day , I think we as fans get a little TO WRAPPED UP in these streaks , when in reality we need to be a little more involved /concerned about our team coming out of our slump and continued improvement. - - The streaks are nice - -great for fans to thump their chest about bragging rights and such - - BUT at the end of the day it’s more or should be more about the state of our guys - -our beloved JayHawks that they continue to improve and play well - -the rest is just Gravy. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
Dave is coming on , getting better game by game.
Have mentioned this throughout the year , but when they asked Coach who had made the most improvement during the off year, Coach responded and said David McCormack without a doubt - - no doubt about it.
Had people doubting that as Dave struggled early, slow to come around, but he has gotten better as the year has gone on. - There has been times if it wasn’t for him we would of been screwed, think some people not looking in the right places, not flashy by any means , not dominant by any means but just has become a steady guy.
Some things about this Dave is getting the least minutes of any of the Starting 5. - - Dave is only playing 21.9 minutes per contest YET , he is averaging 13.o ppg 2nd best production behind Agbaji - He is Averaging 6.1 rpg not the best by any means coudl kick that up to say at least 8 - -8.5 per but still not punk either. Dave has the best shooting % on the team at 48.9 % 3rd best free throw shooting % 80.5 which is pretty dam good for a big man and seeing as how he has the 2nd most attempts for the team , good to see him be able to step up and knock down the free points. - - Dave leads the team in blocks with 23 so overall, not as bad as some think. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
