I’ll make this quick…
A couple observations on the cult-like thinking and behavior of KU basketball fans from behind the Iron Curtain in Lawrence, Kansas.
To spell it out, with rare exception they’re in denial.
To be a KU basketball fan in Lawrence, your devotion must be blind.
Anybody who can find even the slightest wrong – such as players slapping around girlfriends or kicking the you-know-what out of a women’s car outside some bar late at night, is one of two things:
Either a jealous Missouri Tiger fan or someone who just doesn’t get the fact that with ultra rare exception, basketball coach Bill Self and the Kansas athletics department can do no wrong…
Where basketball is concerned, that is.
I mean, they’re the gang that can’t shoot straight in terms of the Jayhawk’s football program, but that’s of little concern anyway, so no harm, no foul.
Thinking I’m making this up or exaggerating?
Trust me, I’m not.
I deal with these people week in and week out. And outside of KU basketball, they’re successful, normal seeming, otherwise intelligent, rational adults.
Because as long as the KU roundballers are winning, count on their their cult following in Lawrence to see no evil.
