Coach Self, you've got to work on eye contact with the camera.

Texas... in the words of Bart Scott: Can't Wait (tm)

Ku_fansince75

Okay---who should I root for: A&M or Texas? I kinda have a clue what ya all will say.

Bcravenjhawkfan

Jaybate, I think it's because once these guys hit tournament play they suddenly realize the potential of one and done and absolutely lock up, playing not to lose.

KU 88% at the line. Rubbing my eyes.

fansincewilt

Now, get some sleep tonight for a big game tomorrow.

Waywardjay

Nice Dig on Lunardi there Musberger.

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

It is insane to make guys play three games in three days.

Brooksmd

So is the championship game gonna be on real ESPN or do we play second fiddle again to Big East and ACC?

Lajayhawk

Um... Didn't Jesse say Marcus would have a 20 point game?

Matt Lacey in reply to Jaybate

That's why I don't watch the NBA.

Waywardjay

AM....

Floridajayhawks in reply to Bcravenjhawkfan

Agree

Jhawk7782 in reply to Jesse Newell

Not when shooting techs

Jaybate in reply to Bcravenjhawkfan

Yep.

FINAL
Colorado 83
Kansas 90

Jesse Newell

KU is heading to Saturday's 5 p.m. championship.

Lajayhawk

38 to 24 rebounds. Morrii 11 total offensive boards.

Jaybate

Muss is jealous that Joe is trying to take Bob away from him.

Jhawk7782

night all

Jesse Newell

Self to Reed: "Get open Tyrel! Who's the best free-throw shooter? What are you doing?"

Jhawk7782

On to the Finals!

Lajayhawk

Rock Chalk. 31-2

Jaybate

Wow that was a really great drive! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Ku_fansince75

Jesse, Marcus is the MVP. Nice prediction on the Cram Session!

Ku_fansince75

Come on Bob Knight----do the chant!

Waywardjay

Note to Tad Boyle. Well Played Sir. Well played.

Kgphoto

Stop. Let's score 88 for Danny!

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Seriously. Jesse. That seat. Everytime.

Hippster

Why is everyone playing so lethargic right now?

Jaybate in reply to Larry Evans

100 called it right a couple days back. When the game is fitting in the broadcast window, the refs call fouls to narrow the spread the last 3 minutes. The pattern continues. No evidence to prove it, but it sure looks like a duck.

Ku_fansince75

Rock Chalk chant!!!!!!!

Bcravenjhawkfan in reply to Waywardjay

But at least try to guard him. You know what I mean.

Waywardjay

Where's the Chant ?

Bcravenjhawkfan in reply to Treed14ku

And Keiton Page, Alan Voskuill, Ali Babba and the Forty Thieves, and the list goes on and on!

Jhawk7782

14 assists and v15 TOs by KU

Lajayhawk in reply to Hippster

I would guess because we have a game again tomorrow and we're just trying to run it out right now

Larry Evans

that was a horrible call by that ref.. Little didn't foul. The BIG 12 refs are members of the good old boys club..No matter how bad they are ,,the head honcho will not get rid of them.

Parishawk

Man are we hitting the free throws.

Maxjay

My heart is weak..:(

Jaybate

Once again, Self sends'em out flat as pancakes, gives them nothing new to run, and they labor like mothers delivering triplets and walk away with a win. These guys are primed and ready for Self to amp them for Texas and blow Texas out by 20.

Waywardjay in reply to Jaybate

see Shizz in a differnet light. :)

Lajayhawk

"He could have used the shot fake right there."

Ku_fansince75

15 for TT---nice game, son!

Jaybate in reply to Larry Evans

31-2

Jaybate in reply to Waywardjay

Great prediction!

Waywardjay in reply to Bcravenjhawkfan

Knutson was shooting 50% from three against everyone.

Tanman

Tad Boyle... you made us very proud... Goodluck in the weak Pac 10...er..12

Treed14ku in reply to Bcravenjhawkfan

Wait...Will Spradling is on the court?

Lajayhawk

If you were to shot fake on a free throw, would Knight give a standing ovation ala Dickie V?

Brooksmd in reply to Jaybate

lmao

Waywardjay

SOmeone needs to mop the damn floor.

Waywardjay

87-81 was my prediction... over a game buffalo squad?

Larry Evans

Jesse,,if this team makes it to the sweet 16 and not any further will be a good season.

Jaybate

Bob and Brent are like a couple of bend overs out on the town wondering how they wound up at a basketball game.

Bcravenjhawkfan

The zit faced kid AGAIN!

Ku_fansince75

No fouls.

Waywardjay in reply to Lajayhawk

Me too.

Jhawk7782 in reply to Jaybate

I hear ya

fansincewilt

What was that shot from Morningstar?

Lajayhawk

I'm gonna play the shot fake drinking game next Knight broadcast.

Tanman

RCJH... is that what I hear? Sounds like it did in Boulder

Waywardjay

That was Pretty.

Jaybate

Tyrel Reed, just another small Kansas town kid that can't ball with the big boys. :-)

Jesse Newell

KU runs the same play it did to seal the MU game. Reed three goes in.

Jaybate in reply to Jhawk7782

C'mon, Mike, we're 31-2! Cut him some slack.

Larry Evans

Morning star the great defender ..yeah right! Releford is sooooooooo much better.

Matt Lacey in reply to Jhawk7782

+1

Jhawk7782

God we need a PG!

Jaybate

Can you believe how excited Bob and Muss got about that nob throwing up a hail marry in a losing game?

Kgphoto

This Syracuse game is UN believable.

Hippster

I really hope Brady gets this slump out of his system now. If he was going to have one, better now than in the NCAA.

Shawk13

Props where props are due. Nice moves Burks.

Lajayhawk

why the hell wouldn't Brady run some freakin clock there???

01:32 left in Second Half
Colorado 74
Kansas 82

Jesse Newell

Amazing shot by Burks to scoop it in.

Jayandseahawk

Finish it!

Tanman in reply to Jaybate

Switch away to a Mich. or Mich. St. game... that would do it!

Jhawk7782

Dumb

Cshjhawk

waive the wheat

Treed14ku

Why would he need a shot fake? He was wide open. Wow, even for Knight that was bad.

Ku_fansince75

Daggers!!!!!!!!

Matt Lacey

FEELIN IT!

Waywardjay

Dagger.

Lajayhawk

Hahaha... he airballs and Knight is STILL impressed with the shot fake

Jesse Newell

Dufault a 24-percent three-point shooter, and he shot a bad one there.

Krohnutz

He was all over Cole.

fansincewilt in reply to Parishawk

Good one.

Jaybate in reply to Krohnutz

There are people at network that stay up late at night trying to figure out how to annoy KU fans to death.

Tanman

really, an airball?

Matt Lacey

CU has had opportunities here.

Jhawk7782

wow

Krohnutz

When I was stationed in Cali I got the pleasure of listening to Chick Hearn. Meaning I grew up with Falkenstein, got a taste of Hearn, and now I have to listen to Bob Knight talk. It's like growing up with Dr. Pepper, then tasking some Mr. Pibb and its still good, and then suddenly you have to get the "Dr. Shock" in the super generic can. And most likely that can is leaking.

Jaybate in reply to Lajayhawk

PHOF!

Jaybate

I tell ya, Bob hates Eddie and Bill Ball because it is relegating Knight Ball to histories ash can.
