Final 4

So Jayhawk fans... we got there.  Are you satisfied?  Are you happy that we made it for the first time since Kirk Hinrich and crew?  First time sine Roy?  I am very excited that we are going to be a part of the greatest FF in history.  The talent we are going to see on the floor in San Antonio is going to be one for the ages.  Our matchup with North Carolina and the boys in baby blue will be amazing.  How do you see the game taking shape?  Can our bigs keep Tyler under control?  Can we slow down Ty and the rest of the athletes on Carolina?  I will be honest, I am nervous!  I think however, this is our best matchup in the FF.  I am glad that we don't have to play both UCLA and Memphis... or UCLA and UNC.  I think we are going to play UNC close.  I think we are going to play the best we have played all year.  The pressure is off this team.  They got Coach Self to his first FF.  UNC is the favorite and we are not the team to beat in this tournament.  I think we are actually considered the weakest team left... and I like it.  For once, we are not the favorite... like we were against Syracuse and Carmelo Anthony.  I think the Jayhawks will respond and play amazing.  Looking at the matchup.. .I think our advantage is going to be Mario Chalmers.  He is the guy that I feel comfortable with in big games.  I think Russ and Sherron have their hands full with containing Ty and I think Mario will get a lot of open shots against the questionsable 'd' of UNC.  Hopefully our shots will fall (didn't in the Davidson game) and we win by a nose. 

What are your thoughts?

65 Teams... one goal.. to win April 7th.

So... Selection Sunday is over.  The seeds are set.  The bubble teams are... well... bubble teams.  Let's get down to business.  30 teams think they will make the Final 4 and maybe 8 teams actually think they will win it all.  For Kansas fans, winning on April 7th is all that matters.  While the same can be said for fans of UNC, UCLA, Memphis, Tennessee etc....  So, why the urgency in Lawrence this March? 

  1. 1988... it's been 20 long years of ending the season with a loss.  Jacque, Kirk, Nick, Wayne, Keith, Paul, Raef, Aaron, Rex, Haase, Woodbury and the rest tried.. but failed to bring home the hardware.
  2. Roy Williams... Roy winning at UNC still brings a bad taste to my mouth.
  3. Teams that start with 'B'.  Losing to Bucknell and Bradley in the first round in back-to-back years was not how it was supposed to happen. 
  4. Bill Self... has yet to make the Final 4.  I am tired of hearing that he is the best not to get there.
  5. Dick Vitale... used to think he was a fan... now he is just annoying.  Keep picking UNC every year... jerk.
  6. Darnell Jackson, Russell Robinson, Jeremy Case, Sasha Kaun, Brad Witherspoon and Rodrick Stewart... These Seniors are first class.
  7. Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, Sherron Collins and Darrell Arthur our superstar underclassmen that may playing their last couple games.
  8. If not this year... it's going to be a while.

So...  if this is going to be the year for Kansas to win it all... what needs to happen?  What are your thoughts?  What makes you think Kansas can do what it takes to win it all?  What makes you think they can't win?  If not Kansas, who?

Another loss... more questions!

So jayhawk fans... another dud by the hawks over the weekend.  I was so happy that the game was on local TV... but wish I would not have seen it!  What happened to the killer mentality?  Why is this team having trouble with these teams?  Why can we not guard these teams like we were in the beginning of the season?  I think they look tired and not as motivated.  This year’s team has a great chance this year!  They need to get their heads in the game and play to their ability… not down to the competition.  I am sick of Brandon and the rest of the crew being so darn passive on offense.  Brandon is a really good player that needs to learn how to take over when the team needs a lift!  We should have won on Saturday.  Things need to change soon… or they are going to lose everything they have worked so hard for.  Right now… I expect they are a #2 seed.  To earn a #1 they need to win out… including the BIG XII tournament.  Can they do it… yes.  Will they?<o:p></o:p>

A note to all Kansas Fans

So... another Jayhawk flop.

I am sure I am not the only one... about 5 minutes into the game or so... I just know the game is going to be close to the end and we will lose.  Why do I feel this way?  I guess I have seen enough of their games over the years to see it coming?  (Since my freshman year... I figure I have seen about 450 games)

So... why did we lose?  I think it honestly comes down to guys being scared of foul trouble.  The we so agressive in the paint in the first half.. but lost their edge early in the second half.  Texas KILLED us o the boards in the second half.

What do you all think?  Why the lack of intensity?

Missouri game

Another Jayhawk victory!!!  I thought the team played well last night.  Not great... but played a good game.  I was upset that they were not able to cause more turnovers and they had too many of their own.  I was also upset that Slim got himself in foul trouble again.  We are a different team with him on the bench.  He needs to learn to play smarter and not pickup those dumb fouls.  I really liked to see Brandon be more agressive and drive to the hoop a couple times.  He needs to play like the go-to-guy and be a little more selfish!  He is so talented around the basket and needs to take advantage of his strengths!  I was also happy to see Sherron playing a little better... he had that burst of speed we all saw last year!  I think this team is starting to believe and starting to really understand what it takes to win... no matter what style of play the other teams forces on them.  Keep being agressive and playing smart!  Keep hitting your FT and trusting your teammates.  This team is fun to watch!!

Gift from Mizzou

Well.... a lot has happened in the last week.  Kansas loses a game at KSU for the first time in like 100 years.... Cats take over the lead in BIG XII.... then poop their pants at Missouri.  So... were do we stand now?  Tied for first with another BIG XII Championship in our grasp as long as we take care of business!  It starts tonight with a home date against the same short-handed Mizzou team that just had a HUGE win against KSU. 

Our Huge advantage tonight is going to be our guards... they are missing their point guard!!!  We should be able to cause Mizzou to turn the ball over all night!  Should be a nice confidence booster for KU tonight!  Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, and Sherron Collins should dominate and KU should win easily!  I also want to see Cole Aldrich get some major minutes!  We are going to need home come March!
