OTC: KU/MU Border War Allows Antlers To Bare Their Horns (& Dresses)

 

“I got my daughter listening to the radio right now.”
Calvin Thompson, former KU player in the mid ‘80s, when asked by Bob Fescoe what it was like to play in this rivalry as a player, 610 AM
GH: Thompson cautioned Fescoe that what he had to say might be alarming. I had no idea how alarming. Read on.
“The Antlers over there (in Columbia) were ruthless! The Antlers, they let us have it. They didn’t hold anything back. I don’t know how they found out things but they found out things before even it hit the press. It was unreal!”
Calvin Thompson, 610 AM
GH: Thompson didn’t relay his stories about Norm, Hearnes Center and the Antlers with hatred but more with awe. He appeared to be amazed at the preparation this group of dress-wearing and wig-waving Antlers put into disrupting KU’s game. Read on.
“My dad died my first game (at Kansas) my freshman year. He had a heart attack in the stands. And that’s all I heard the first year I went over there. They don’t hold anything back.”
Calvin Thompson, 610 AM
GH: Even for the Antlers that sounds way below the belt – or skirt. Let’s hope the sudden death of Danny Manning’s father on Friday isn’t more fuel for the Antlers’ show. I did a little research on Johnson’s first trip to Hearnes Center to face Norm and the Antlers. I discovered KU won 72-62. Some of Thompson’s KU teammates that season might be more famous today than they were back then. Mark Turgeon, Tad Boyle and Carl Henry were also part of that KU squad.
“My wife works over there in Kansas City and somebody told her they still have me labeled as the dirtiest player in the Big 8. Man, that was 14 years ago!”
Jason Sutherland, who graduated from Mizzou in 1997, 610 AM
GH: Sutherland probably ranks second only to Quantrill when it comes to a surname that the mere mention of can make Jayhawk blood boil. Damn those were some fun times!
“With Nebraska leaving (the Big 12), now there’s not too many schools left who haven’t gone to the Final Four – except Missouri.”
Calvin Thompson, getting in a dig in at Sutherland and his Tigers, 610 AM
GH: Fescoe and Josh Klingler had Thompson and Sutherland on the phone together and the Jayhawk got the better of the verbal jousting. Read on.
“I don’t know how to respond to that but hopefully we’re building toward that.”
Jason Sutherland, on Thompson’s Final Four cut, 610 AM
“I think if you’re an old guy who liked Norm Stewart I don’t think you like (the style of basketball Mike Anderson is coaching at Mizzou). And if you’re a young guy you like it. I think it depends on what age you are.”
Jason Sutherland, former MU guard, when asked by Fescoe if Mizzou fans liked the Tigers’ current style of play, 610 AM
GH: Interesting. Kind of like Lady Gaga, tattoos and Pokémon.
“The bottom line is that Kansas is just better (than Mizzou) at every position. The only edge you can give Missouri is they’re playing on their home floor. Before Tuesday night (and MU’s loss in Lincoln) I would have given Missouri a 50-50 chance (to beat Kansas). This game now I think is more like 20-80. I see Kansas winning by probably 10 or 15 points.”
Gabe DeArmond, of PowerMizzou.com, 810 AM
“I think Missouri wins (on Saturday) against Kansas. The home-court advantage is just too much. KU’s complacency will be there.”
Shan Shariff, 610 AM
GH: History shows this game should be close regardless of the two teams’ rankings. I don’t think it will be but that’s why they play the game. I like KU by 12.
“I think (Kansas) is a Final Four team and with a few breaks a national championship team.”
Blair Kerkhoff, when asked by Petro his opinion of KU’s chances in the NCC tourney, 810 AM
“I think Missouri’s best bet is to shorten the rotation. Maybe that means you can’t play the way Missouri and Mike Anderson are playing. I think he’s got to change his rotation. Kim English was 1-for-9 at Iowa State and that followed up his 2-for-10 at Manhattan. When you’re 2-for-10, every shot’s a bad shot. Mike Anderson knows how to coach his team but you asked me what I’d do and I’d go to a seven-man rotation.”
Gabe DeArmond, of PowerMizzou.com, 810 AM
“(Kim English) was put on the Wooden Watch List. I think the media and broadcasters always overrated Kim. I always thought he was a good spot-up shooter but he’s gotten away from just taking shots.”
Jon Sundvold, on the Mizzou junior, 810 AM
GH: I think Mike Anderson has Kim English overrated. He seems like a great kid but he’s frustrating to watch play more poorly than he did as a freshman.
“This happens too much with Missouri.”
Blair Kerkhoff, on the Tigers’ poor effort in Lincoln, 810 AM
“It may be good for us to get away from home and be us against everybody else – and have a real tight team huddle.”
Bill Self, when asked by Fescoe about playing at Mizzou Arena, 610 AM
“I love the fact that it’s an 11 AM game!”
Bob Fescoe, on the early start for Saturday’s KU/MU game, 610 AM
GH: 11:00 AM is a bit too early for the marquee game of the day but I’ll be watching and tweeting.
“It apparently improved his Twitter followers by thousands because everybody figured they had to follow this guy.”
Soren Petro, on the number of Twitter followers Doug Gottlieb has picked up since his conversation with the Oklahoma cop was posted on WBH’s website, 810 AM
GH: You too can follow the ESPN analyst at @GottliebShow on Twitter.
“This is sweet, man! I get paid just the same the last two days and the show’s been 25 minutes each (day).”
Nick Wright, on his truncated afternoon show this week due to 610’s coverage of the Royals’ spring games in Arizona, 610 AM
GH: I cannot believe there is a viable radio audience for Royals’ spring training play-by-play. Have Niche Wright’s ratings dropped so low that even baseball practice now bumps his show?

    Dresses?
    Hey Hall, care to enlighten us as to why the Antlers were wearing those dresses?

  4. smartman says:

    He’s BACK
    About time you got your mojo back. I was worried after the last two days of you lifting up Petro and Gottlieb like they were Rowan and Martin and then all the bashing religion and people who chose to live their lives answering to a higher calling. Shit, just saying that makes me want a Hebrew National Hot Dog. They did a survey of 100 Antlers and asked them if they thought is was OK to have sex in the shower. 86 answered yes and the other 14 said that hadn’t been to prison yet. That’s funny MU in the Final Four? That’s HILARIOUS

  5. HAHAHAAHhahahahaHAAHAHA says:

    hahah….”hadn’t been to prison yet””…hahahTHATS FUNNY

    RIP Ed Manning
    I remember when Larry Brown hired Ed Manning to be an assistant coach. At the time he was a truck driver but just happened to have a son who could play some ball.
    At one K-State game, the fans started chanting warm up the bus Ed. Didn’t go over to well with KU people. It turned out to be a pretty good hire. RIP.

  7. Merle Tagladucci says:

    Saturday will be the first time Mizzou Arena has been full since the last time KU was in MIzzou Arena.

  8. Observer says:

    Cant sell unless KU plays there?
    They dont sell out games unless KU plays there?
    How embarrassing. So basically misery ismainly known for being nuthin, but the meth capital of the world, how pathetic that dump is and its fans are nothing but loser idiots, what exaclty are you idiots so mouthy about? STFU YOU FKN PATHETIC LOSERS !!!!!

  9. chuck says:

    I love my Tigers, lets hope they have some
    Tiger Blood and get to “winning” today.

    I will also say this, I apologize for all Tiger fans (If it is ok) to Calvin Thompson for ever saying anything so disgraceful to a college kid about his father’s passing. Jesus, that was awful.

    GO TIGERS!!!

  10. chuck says:

    BTW, that smartman joke is vey funny.

  11. Ryan says:

    Thompson’s first game at MU
    Thompson’s first trip to MU would have included Boyle, Henry, Kelly Knight and Ron Kellogg. It also included Jon Sundvold and “Who shot Stipo?” in a 74-69 win. Mark Turgeon did not arrive until the following year. Making fun of someone’s deceased father is akin to the pride taken in Quantrill burning down cities in the name of slavery. Things have not changed much in Mizzery.

  12. Fuhk Misery says:

    No class, no talent, no understanding of good sportsmenship
    Fuhk the hateful freekjobs that operate out of, or root for, those idiots from columbia. It is a disgusting scene over there, from the spray painting of racist comments on campus to the the morons planting cotton balls to taunt black students, to the idiotic antlers and all their stupid bs (hoping to make up for lack of talent on their team) . The freek jobs who come from columbia are a joke and deserve nothing but misery, and that is what they will get, fuhk misery , especially today. you idots do not understand good sportsmenship, thus FFFFUUUUU, you are going down today, as usual, you fkng loser scumbag pieces of sht.

  13. Jayhawk Fan says:

    Good Job jayhawks
    Great work today Jayhawks, time for the post season, one game at a time men, let do it.

    PS
    I MUST SAY I AM FLABBERGASTED THAT THEY CUT AWAY FROM MY GAME ,after all the times i have had to sit through some other blow out bs game and missed the first 8-10 minutes of my Jayhawks game….today they cut away from my game??? …WTF??? …oh well, I guess it was in hand and we won….I hope we did anyway. fkn TV assholes.

  14. Jayhawk Fan says:

    WTF!!!???? THAT GAME WAS NOT OVER!!!
    Why would CBS cut away form a close game!!!!
    IT WAS NOT OVER!!!
    We listend to the radio ending and it was too close to go to another game.
    CBS YOUFKNMUTHAFKRS!!!!

  15. Jayhawk Fan says:

  17. Brian says:

    So CBS is saying the issue with the game switch was sun spots. What horse shit is that?

  18. I HATE QUITTERS!!! says:

    misery fans are little quitter pussies
    If you play enough video games online (XBOX360 OR PS3) you will learn that the proper name for that is QUITTERBOX. When you are playing a game with the majority of people, and you are winning, 30-80% of the time they will quit. They are quitter little bitches whom can not handle the truth that . IT IS EXACLTY LIKE MU FANS. THEY ARE NO TALENT LITTLE PUSSYS WITH NO TALENT AND THEY ARE QUITTERS.

    Some little quitter cunt in the CBS truck was an mu fan, and pulled the plug to ruin the fun for everyone, it is a joke. mu is a joke, mu fans are a joke.

    mu fans are the talk more be than any other fans, and that piece of shit scholl has NEVER done a thing. mu fans are soe hateful and unsportsmanlike …they are the first to post when KU does does not win…. and they NEVER post whne a team beats them. Do you see any mouthy mu douchebags here congratulating Ku on 7 straiaght BIG 12 TITLES? nope, not one. it is a joke. mu is a joke. mu fans are a joke.

    PS
    I play some video games online and I never quit. Why would anyone quit, it is juts a game, and one learns nothing from quitting. I NEVER QUIT, NO MATTER THE SCORE I ACCEPT THE RECORD, but a lot of online little pussies, like mu pusies would rather pull the plug than accpet the fact THAT THEY SUCK!!!! AND mu SUCKS AND IT IS OBVIOUS A mu FAN PULLED THE PLUG ON THAT GAME..

  19. PROPER SOLUTION says:

    NO COMMERCIALS
    SO CBS, AND CHANNEL 5, THINK MAKING US WATCH COMMERCIALS AGAIN IS A PROPER SOLUTION?

    CBS ALREADY RUINED THE FUCKING MOMENT!!! WHAT ASSHOLES!!!

    IF THEY WANT TO TRY TO MAKE THIS CORRECT JUST SHOW THE LAST 5 MINUTES OF THE GAME NO COMMERCIALS….AND LETS MOVE ON…THIS IS NOT A CHANCE TO MAKE MONEY ON YOUR FUCK UP CBS , THIS IS A CHANCE TO DO THE RIGHT THING.

    WE COME TO HEARNE’S SITE, THERE ARE ADS, WE READ CONTENT.
    WE WATCH CBS, WE ARE FORCED TO WATCH ADS, WE SEE CONTENT.

    WE ALREADY PAID BY WATCHING THE FUCKING ADSONCE
    BUT THEY SCREWED US, AND NOW THEY MAY WANT TO USE THIS FUCK UP TO SELL AD TIME AGAIN!!???

    IF CBS WANTS TO MAKE THIS RIGHT… THEN THEY NEED TO SHOW THE LAST 5 MINUTES OF THE GAME WITH NO COMMERCIASL…AND then we can kiss and mkae up and move on…. other wiise boyoctt CBS…..and the little pussy mu fans who work there..

    fk mu
    fk all mu fans, you are the worst sportement anywhere,,,,,you fucking pussies.

  20. chuck says:

    Congrats not only to KU for the expected and
    deserved win over my Tigers, but also to the fans from KU, who left some very funny posts. Seriously, hilarious. This is epic,

    “PS

    Fuckin awesome.

    🙂

  21. Man says:

    one man, among so many pussies
    Thanks for the congrats Chuck, you are a man among the pussies.

    In the Big 12 …..it is no small thing to figure out how to beat the other coaches AND beat the players AND beat the refs… now we gotta figure out how to beat the fkn idiots who wanna pull the TV plug if their team is not winning??

    The funniest (best moral) part of this is….if mu had come back and won (which they could have) the mu fan who pulled the plug would have fkd mu fans worse than helping them not see the inevitiable slaughter.

    Come from behind win are the sweetest.

    Let the game play, let the cards fall…… allow it to occur organically… not rigged BS… THEN to the Victors …go the spoils.

  22. Markus Aurelius says:

    I might actually occasionally listen to 610 if they are
    broadcasting Royals spring training games. Normally, I never go down the dial once Wright’s show comes on. KK and/or Clinkscale can bother me at times but BTL is soooo far above the drivel coming from Wright both in terms of content and production values, that it’s not even debatable. At least now I can switch over to listen to spring training, on the rare occasions that I might want a change of pace.
