Let me laugh out loud!

Steve Kubler

To little faith Jesse, lost your perfect record!

Lawkan in reply to 3puttbogey

He might have. I am pretty sure this is Crafts 8th year.

Jaybate

Talk about taking the crowd completely out of a game!!!!!!!!

Self Defense just completely shut these Buckeyes down, and did it with steals instead of blocks.

Beautiful, boys, flipping beautiful!!!!!!!

Brian Powell

Strong start + Jeff = W.

It's a Festivus miracle! See ya next year,

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Lajayhawk

Blaming the refs maybe?

3puttbogey in reply to Lawkan

So...he didn't paly for OSU, right? Not sure Clark Kellogg knows that.

Duane Rice

ROCK CHALK! my wish came true.

MDL/kuae99

Lots of good tape in both directions from this game.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Boos at who, exactly?

Wissoxfan83

ROCK CHALK

Darin Bradley

Brian Haase

HAWKS

Marc Frey in reply to Duane Rice

2 shots plus the ball

Jaybate

Quick someone let them score one point.

Jeff Kilgore in reply to Marcus Balzer

We'll win by and he'll be angry. That's still good coaching.

Jaybate

Jeff can knock them down. Yay!!!

Duane Rice

There should be a 5 second run off for that.

Cshjhawk

Self giving Mac heck!

Bwag

This is an ugly finish

Lajayhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

No, no, no.... seriously....

W....T....F....

Jaybate

Matta looks like so many coaches beaten by Self and his teams.

How the flip did he do it? We matched them on so many stats. How the heck did he make us shoot 29.5% inside?

I love it.

Marcus Balzer

Nope. Now its official. Self is going to kill someone.

Dynamitehawk

Oh boy.

Brian Haase

Wow. Playing so so so bad down the stretch. This is ugly

Darin Bradley

Announcers are still pulling for Ohio State.

Jeff Kilgore in reply to David Leathers

Hummell's career was indeed, tragic.

Lajayhawk

Seriously... W....T..... F.....

Marcus Balzer

Are you kidding me right now.

Lawkan

Sullinger is with the Celtics

Lajayhawk

W.... T.... F....

David Leathers in reply to Jeff Kilgore

Purdue was too long ago, besides, they had Robbie Hummell... not fair for them

Lajayhawk in reply to Jaybate

Dude, you're like the caps lock king, right now.

3puttbogey

Just got here guys. Anyone know if Sullinger played for OSU today?

Dynamitehawk

Half a second at a time.

Cshjhawk

You would think that OSU is playing in the horseshoe!

Dynamitehawk

Man... This is Jay Wright ball.

Jaybate in reply to David Leathers

OH, GOSH, I HOPE SO.

Duane Rice in reply to Jaybate

We haven't had a good true road win in long time. Please refresh my memory if Im not correct.

Jeff Kilgore in reply to David Leathers

I'm just counting OSU. If we count Purdue, it's 4-1.

David Leathers in reply to David Leathers

damn... 10

Jaybate

WHO IS JEFF COMING IN FOR? AHHH NAADIR.

David Leathers in reply to Jaybate

20.1 secs left... we win by 11

Bwag

Lets finish this

David Leathers

we aren't 3-0 against the B1G... Mich. St.

Marcus Balzer

Self is about to murder someone.

Marc Frey

Big 10 Lovefest going on.

Lajayhawk

Holy Jebus...

Brian Haase

We're lucky this game isn't closer cuz our free throws would be hurting us bad

Jaybate

MISSING FREE THROWS IS GOING TO BREAK OUR HEARTS THOUGH.

AND RUIN MY PREDICTION OF A TEN POINT WIN.

Lajayhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

Ugh.

Marcus Balzer

wow. that would have made the game extremely interesting had Thomas hit that.

Jaybate

But this is one of KU's great pre-conference victories. Its tough to get a big win on the road, even though we are the ...........BETTER TEAM!!!!!!!!

Darin Bradley

open look. wtf is up w/ our d ?

Lajayhawk

Hmmm... guess we'll find out how Traylor shoots FTs at the end of a game...

Jeff Kilgore

Does this 3-0 help or hurt our B1G chances? jk

Jeff Kilgore

Trivia question. How many teams have scored 70 points or more in 2008 and 2012's NCAA tournaments?

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

No, but OSU is going the full Ten right now. Filthy dirty.

Wissoxfan83

Remembering Tyshawns errant pass to coach Self at the end of the OSU game in New Orleans.

Lawkan

do we play these guys next year or was it just a home and home?

Darin Bradley

stupid play.

Brian Powell

tell me EJ didn't tweak his knee on that pass by Bmac

Marcus Balzer

This is a still a ball game...

Jaybate

They really got a cheap shot in on EJ.

00:31 left in Second Half
Kansas 69
Ohio St. 61

Jesse Newell

Not pretty for KU down the stretch.

Cshjhawk

Craft was inneffective tonite!

Lajayhawk in reply to Jeff Kilgore

Which is pretty solid.

Todd Simpson

14-24 now

Jaybate

Travis is just an absolute man today

Lawkan

ha KY subbed in for defense!

Duane Rice

Finally 2 made free throws

Jeff Kilgore in reply to Lajayhawk

Thanks.

David Leathers

This makes my weekend complete. Merry Christmas to all. Had a great time!

Lajayhawk in reply to Jeff Kilgore

Going into today it was 75.3%

Rolland Remmert

Mery Christmas All.......looking forward the 2nd half od the season

Todd Simpson

12-22 (.545)

Kusportsnut in reply to Jeff Kilgore

Closer to 50%

Marcus Balzer

12-20 barring EJ's throws coming up

Cshjhawk in reply to Wissoxfan83

miss Turgy!

Jeff Kilgore

What's our team free throw shooting percentage? About 75%? Just a guess.

Jaybate

They big stat of this game is Deshaun being held to 3-9 and 15. Travis deserves the flipping Basketball Medal of Honor!!!!

Lajayhawk

Sigh.... why doesn't Self ever screen for the inbound pass?

Marc Frey in reply to Jaybate

5:30 now

Wissoxfan83

Wow, Southern just beat Texas A & M, and Southern's horrible.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jaybate

And annoy me the whole way....

Jeff Kilgore

There really isn't a problem here. They're tired, the game got boring, and we'll finish the next game better.

Jaybate

This is one of those 44 seconds remaining that is going to last 5 minutes.

Lajayhawk in reply to Cshjhawk

From 3. They are a whopping 29% from the floor. ;-)

Marcus Balzer

What was that creature that just hopped off the Suckeyes bench????

Cshjhawk

OSU is shooting 26%

Lajayhawk

UGHHHHH!!!!!!

Jeff Kilgore

Shhhiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wissoxfan83

This is classic KU Bill Self defense, even layups contested, that's why they're missing

Jaybate in reply to Dynamitehawk

PHOF!!!
