OTC: KU’s Loss Self Inflicted? And Can KSU Afford To Beat KU?

    Trying to play the 3 ball in that arena is insane. Even though they shot a decent 40%…it seemed that the advantage KU was sporting was down under?
    X…granted he is a gorgeous athlete and prospect…still doesn’t look like he’s ready for tournament action.

    Kentucky looks like “The” #1 seed to me….John Wall is best I’ve seen in years….Magic/Bird/Jordan wrapped in one package.

    Nick Wright is a tool, a yes-man and anything he evers vommits into his microphone is made up of what real broadcasters have said and he has read elsewhere, sometimes spun 180 degrees, other times not. He makes this comment about Self and COTY because it is the sexy thing to say and it is somewhat obvious.

    As a KU alum and fan I would say that if Self does get COTY it would be deserved given the overall toughness of the conference this season and not to mention winning the conference six years in a row – in itself not an easy thing to do in any conference.

    HOWEVER, all of that aside, with two games left in conference play I would say that Frank Martin is a valid choice (and deserving) for COTY with one of many reasons being the same as listed above for the Jayhawks – the Big 12 is a pretty damn good conference this year, well unless you are Nebraska…

    Hall, I am also very curious about Martin, his pending raise, and the amount of said raise given the financial hammer K State is trying to put down in the shadows of all the shenannigans brought to light in the last year and a half. The administration sure do find themselves in a precarious position given they are trying to save face from recent monetary debacles. Fact remains, if K State won’t pay him, someone else WILL and I imagine that would be quite handsomely at that.

    Final four = KSU, KU, Syracuse, and Ohio St

    Greg thanks for giving us your thoughts on the US/ Canada Hockey game. It was so good, I thought I was there in Canada myself.

    I don’t think you are going to have to wait “a couple of weeks” to find out if uk can refocus. I think it will be in two days.

    GH: While KU may very well get back on track quickly in Lawrence on Wednesday, the question I was pondering is will the loss in Stillwater help keep them from losing before the Final Four. I don’t think there is any connection but I may be in the minority.

    Thank God we here in the Mid West have KU and Bill Self, what a pleasure to talk about losing a game or two on the way to the final four, instead of what can “WE” do to compete in this league like the Chiefs and Royals. Two awful programs for many many years. KU is a team to be proud of, year after year. Glad KSU and MU have also gotten so good, nice to have the best basketball in the land right here in KC area. KU likely will win it all or come close, they have the easiest section to win, the Mid-west only have to get by WestVirginia, they will. I fear Syracuse more than Kentucky. It should be fun.

    Proud to have at least one big time winner in KC, The Jayhawks…..and I do think the Chiefs will start to finally improve this season. The Royals stink.

    Hey GEG…UK stands for Kentucky you jackass. Greg did you write this post immediately after getting laid? Where’s the cynicism? The Proctor and Gamble ad made you cry? Wow their market-driven research and sports-fan focus groups really paid off if you’re crying? Check balls sir.


    GH: Attached, but shrinking.

    I can’t stand that P&G ad. They stole one of the coolest traditions in sports and wussified it.

    When I was a young man, there were a couple of bars in Lawrence, the Yuk Up and the Yuk Down, one being uptown and the other downtown; “Yuk” stood for the University of Kansas, UK, so were they named for Kentucky, dumbfuck?
    Doubt if Greg gets laid, he’s married.

    Okay Uncle Dick. If UK is the correct way to denote the University of Kansas, try this: Next time KU plays Kentucky…who knows maybe in early April…wear your “UK” shirt to Lawrence to watch the game and let those around judge what UK means. You better take the short bus there as well since you’ll need a good excuse for being such a retard!

    The University of Kansas or Kansas University, you dyslexic twit? I wouldn’t spend a fucking dime in that god forsaken shit hole of a state, let alone ride your bus to Lawrence. Quantrill was a pussy, they not only should have burned down Lawrence, but salted the land, and sold the women to the Indians, only after raping the shit out of them. Kansas won’t play Kentucky, as they will probably play a small school whose name begins with a “B”, or maybe Fordham University,

    Uncle Dick – awesome comments on Quantrill burning down Lawrence and the Bucknell and Bradley smack is priceless. Those are really fresh takes and I can’t believe somebody hasn’t come up with those lines before. Keep up the good work young man!

    Weiner? I’m surprised your mom lets you stay up so late on a school night.

    No, definitley F U.

    Really, I like KU’s(yes, the accepted moniker in the Midwest)basketball team, one of finest collections of glorified hubcap thieves and wannabe gangstas in the nation. These kids have been groomed for success ever since some AAU coach saw them bouncing a stolen tire and carrying a bag of chicken McNuggets back to their grandmother’s house on the way home from church.

    Speaking of …. why did NBC not leave Al Michales to cover the time period before the OT? He still should have had time to get to the location with Costas for the closing ceremonies?

    And then you’ve got these future postal workers getting branded. Used to take four or five of my great-great-grandpa’s hired hands to hold them down for that, and now they’re paying someone to do it to them.
