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

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
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
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.

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
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

would be a good back up for any and all of those 3next year. - -He could come off the bench be able to play more free, not having to worry as much about getting into foul trouble , coming also to help to keep them from getting into foul trouble just be able to play more freely not having to worry grab some rebounds for stretch’s ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

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
@Marco my doctor told me as I asked I said I was debating about getting the shot , telling her that I had friends that had been having adverse reactions to the shot , we were talking about the 2nd shot was more they were having reactions to, she said it’s NOT the Shot - -it’s actually your body building the defense building the immunity against the virsus on the 2nd shot. - -She said most of the one’s having reactions to it were to people under the age of 55 she just kept saying get the shot.
She said that if people could see when people who get the flu and put on a ventalatir is ONE thing - - -but people with COVID they put you face down on a bed have the ventolatir and not much they an do kind of a hail Merry - - not good

RE: Around the Big 12
It sure looks that way, doesn’t it. Beard has all the tools now… except a fanbase still not sold into basketball… but if Baylor can do it in a football state like Texas, you would think the Longhorns can, too. I just think there is some anti-basketball sentiment still around in the Texas donor pool. The youth are coming around stronger to bball.
I agree. It’s that in the not so distant ages we have seen some pretty empty arena’s in Austin maybe half full , and even the one’s that were there was more of a tennis match crowd real polite claps - -short pause and short claps - -NOT basketball atmosphere. It’s going to take some time as I have said - - I think the anti basketball sentiment is just basically from lack of proof/production.
I mean and it may sound crazy but I still think even when they had some studs Durant - - PJ Tucker their surrounding cast was good - - - but not really great , I just think Texas Fans had higher expectations during those times and they weren’t met. When you are known as a football School / State and your trying to win fans over that under achievement in THEIR fans eyes/minds just doesn’t cut it.
Texas has had some pretty dam good big men and this past year they were a really strong team BUT still for what they had they under achieved - -is it because of it in a large amount because of the Coaching ? - - The answer for me answer is YES - - YES it was. Shaka knew that , he knew with what he had in the eyes of their fans he wasn’t getting it done. He got out before they threw him out.
They now have that Coach but it’s gonna take time for them to become believers in that program again and start putting butts in the seats. I personally don’t think you will see some huge mass return like at the beginning of this coming yr. It’s gonna take a year or 2 - - possibly even three - -However Chris is the guy that can get that program to a power.
Chris is loaded THIS year , he is going to get the recruits , he is going to change Texas recruits minds. Many of those that were leaving the state will now stay. Like I told Marco - Will Beard own the State of Texas - umm NO , your big time blue bloods the Duke’s - - The Kentucky’s - -Some for KU - -Some for Gonzaga - – Some for Michigan St - -the bluebloods STILL gonna be able to pull big players out , as you know these are the Schools that have been blue bloods for ages - well except Gonzaga - -But even with Beard now at Texas , there are some that STILL going to go to the fore mentioned Schools , Big reason is just bcause of their name - -their tradition/history
Chris has work to do , can’t afford a slip up. You get these football crazy Texas fans you get them to come - -start coming back and then you slip up, - -they are going to skee-daddle real quick, but I think if it can truly be done , Chris is the one that will turn that football School to at least a more level sports field
RE: July predictions for the upcoming season results
@justanotherfan my biggest question, how much improved is, Big Dave?
With the roster that we have for this year , the players in place I don’t think Dave has to improve that much at all. He I believe it was at 13.3 ppg and about 8 rebounds per game . many many times he saved our butts. If we can get reasonably balanced scoring I think will be fine right about where he is at. I think Dave was an easy target for people to beat up last year and get down on. There was plenty of fault to go around for ALL on the roster last year.
Ochi had more the his share of turning the ball over and just flat disappearing in games. There were times last year made you wonder if he even suited up, many times seemed like he was in a flat ass hurry to get rid of the ball out of his hands. - - - Jalen went through slumps shooting wasn’t the best . Christian was another that disappeared lost all confidence in his shot , got to the point he was turning down wide open shots not even looking at the basket.
I think if Dave can put up the same kind of numbers he did last year, possibly a little better rebound average he gonna be fine - - stay out of foul trouble -he/we going to be fine. - We have the Scoreeres this year don’t need huge numbers
Another little FYI /Tidbit thought you ight be interested in
Ran across this from another site I’m on : - - -Talks about our past players & how they are doing International : - Couple of interesting ones - top 10

Made some big money ) 16 ppg & 3 rpg . - - -# 5 Landen Lucas 15 ppg & 12 rpg ( happy for big boy.

RE: The other thread pretty lengthy - new one Covid
Just another sign that we know that things are not going good. Out of Nemaha Co here in Kansas , just like so many others had opted out of Gov Kelly’s mask mandate when it was 1st issued. Now this :
Nemaha Co voted to rescind it’s July 2nd order of opting out of the mask mandate and NOW is ordering and implement the mandate immediately. Commissioners noted when they opted out initially that they only had 20 confirmed cases with no hospitalizations or Deaths.
As of Thursday they have 670 confirmed cases - -244 active cases 7 people have been hospitalized and 6 deaths the mandate will remain through Dec 14 and then reviewed to see if needs to be extended or not. - -Stating to see this more and more
RE: 2021 Recruiting
Who did we lose to Memphis? We already have two bigs signed and a developmental center on the roster in Muscadin so it’s hard to consider Ayomide a miss. He is not an impact player and might not even play much at Memphis next year, but I don’t know their roster that well.
We are about ready to lose Ayomide to Memphis. Not buying that we were not trying to get him here, IF that was the case we would not be calling him on a virtual contact this late in his recruitment. - He is rising playing in the rankings quite a few talking how he is really coming up , your not telling me they were not interested in him.
It’s more then just him though - we are missing on a lot of targets Sallis, yippee yep it’s Kentucky. - - Brown to Baylor ? - - come on man you know and I know Baylor in no way shape or form is on KU level unless you talking about the last 3-4 years possibly. - All I’ve ever heard on here is about what a terrible Coach Drew is - - Really ? - -So now we are getting beat out for high ranked players by a Tertible Coach ? - -what’s wrong with that picture ? - Getting tired of seeing these misses - -how about hits ? Whether you wanna admit or not these asst’s are getting out worked.
I don’t know how many times I’ve seen here or on TOS how people looking wanting to get rid of asst’s currently on staff - yet when I mention the seem thing I’m wrong - -hmmmm , again what’s wrong with that picture ? - Come on Man I know your not that thick - - -plain and simple we are getting beat out people not closing out gets kinda old - -now we are getting beat out for kids that are ranked 138 th in the Nation by a terrible Coach - -WOW - -ere are others within the last couple of years that’s happened with.
Seen - - Heard - - Read where players are ours to lose if we want them , see us recruiting them and then BAM. -Can’t really remember names right now but you know - -I know - -we BOTH know we have missed on quite a few , Hell I’ve even seen you mention how we scraping the bottom and not knowing who might be left out there after we had yet ANOTHER miss , so people wanna say after they go somewhee else – OH we wasn’t really interested or wasn’t really recruiting them that hard - - Na that’s not working anymore
RE: Tonight 6:30 DDot and Doke
Well I learned/surprised with 2 things last night from the Draft.- -# 1 just really surprised me Doke end up in the 1st round. I just didn’t think that was going to happen, more like top end of the 2nd to middle. Couldn’t be happier for him.
Then 2nd Devon not being drafted AT ALL. - From everything I had heard/kept hearing was how good he had done in some trials - the shuttle and things like that interviews he had had with teams. I actually thought he would go before Doke , just kind of shocked me when he went un-drafted I think he got over looked by some teams, thought he should of went before some others towards the end for sure - -but tha’ts why they are who they are and I am who I am and they are at where they are at and I’m where I’m at. - -On top of that I’m just a little Biased I reckon.
Again just threw me after what I had been hearing. Coach had said everything he had been hearing was that him and Doke both had really good NBA trials and talks. Super quick - -can distribute the ball pretty well but understand his shot needs some work. - I think too it’s just a matter of how the draft played out.
Hope he can hook on with the bulls maybe
What a sad day this is
1st off my friends Thank you for allowing me to express my thoughts here at this moment truly appreciate that.
Want to say and really express , get across and that is - -What a Sad day , a truly Sad day for America. It’s one of the days when dare I say I’m sad to be an American. Is this what we have become ? - -Is this what we want ? - -Is this America ? Just terrible.

RE: 2021 Recruiting
How about this Jonas Aidoo ? - -Any thoughts on him ? - -you think there is any possible chance we could land him ? - -looks solid only really true blue blood like the article says that on his final 10… Might be one of those cases where we get in on the non rated 3 star that could go to 4 star and in top 100 that would be a real jewel in the rough.
Noted today on 247
“The potential growth of both prospects during their time in Lawrence will be exciting to see. However, they might not be the only frontcourt members of this class as the Jayhawks are in the mix to receive a commitment from four-star late-blooming big man Jonas Aidoo.”
Ya I have heard we in the mix anyways. I don’t know but for some reason I think if we were or could get him to commit i think he could be a pretty good player in time pretty solid on the inside defensively from what I heard rim protector and has some game to him seen some highlights- - but as we know they are hughlights - I just get this feel he would be a nice pick uyp
RE: Paul Pierce College HOF
@wissox TBH I’m mostly living in the present atm. I think it’s healthy for us to look back as much as we can and preserve the continuity, it’s just hard. Also, I wasn’t watching KU much during the Pierce years but I’ve always been curious. Feels like we’ve talked at length about Wilt and Manning but my frame of reference on Pierce is a few clips.
Oh you missed a good one during his time at KU. - -I watched him a lot . Got I believe a 8x10 pic of him in his Rookie year in his Celtic uniform all framed in. - -would love to be able to get it signed by him , very mint condition might be worth some money someday for someone. maybe my Grandkids - -or their kids lol
RE: 'Zona gets NOA
If I’m speaking about the elephant in the room (Nike) I’ll believe it when I see it.
I don’t think Ol Sweat Boy will be able to squirm his way out of this one. - -Just to many level 1 allegations. - I think they get hit just as hard as we do
