I've never heard of "cloudism" before. :-)

Jaybate...thanks for the laugh. Gotta love your post! Are you sure you didn't miss any schools? I love reading your posts!

Memhawk, being a Seattle resident, I'd have to say those 2 1/2 months of sunshine (in a good year) might make up for the 11 1/2 months of clouds and rain :-) Besides, don't you have to demonstrate some sort of jumping prowess to make use of all those puddles? It could be this is an early test to determine later basketball skills.

Thanks for an entertaining set of posts. I'm taking care of ill parents this week and benefited from the laugh! I enjoy this site and the posts daily, but don't post too often.

DoubleDD 10 years, 5 months ago

To be quite frank with you I'm tired of the whole recruiting scene. I guess thats why I'll always be watching the game as a fan and drinking beer while doing it, and never be on the bench as a coach calling the shots. You know we're pretty lucky to have Self he can coach and recruit a rare combination if you ask me. I was on another talking board awhile back and there were alot of KU fans still talking about Roy. Face it boys and girls Roy was and is a great coach, recruiting however not so much. He put together some pretty good teams at KU but lost in end because of the talent level (The other teams were just better). Yea sure he's doing a great job of recruiting at NC, but comon even I could recruit at NC. Cal on the other hand can flat out recruit, but coaching on the other hand not so much. His dribble drive offense that is all the craz is bascially have the most gifted ball handlers slash to the rim then kick out for a three, lay in, or pass it inside for a slam or layup. If it doesn't go in crash the boards. Nice plan if you have the horses to run it. However putting the total focus on guard play leaves you a little weak in the paint. Watching the NC game against his Memphis team again the other day, you couldn't help but notice the weak interior play of the Memphis squad. Self knew what he was doing. Watching Jackson, Darrell, and Kuan, was like watching a machine (big post man 3000, maybe Self should get a patent). Anyways as you can tell I'm tired of this baby food and want some meat. Can we start the season early??? While were dreaming and going about our daily lives Self is doing the dirty work, building us another championship stlye team. Thanks Self, Manning and the rest that make this happen.

KGphoto 10 years, 5 months ago

Interesting jaybate, that Terrence abruptly stopped in the Ls.

My guess is he saw Missouri and Memphis coming and jumped off a moving tour bus.

kupark 10 years, 5 months ago

Looking at the youtube video it's clear he is not very confident about his outside shot. I think he just took two outside shot and passed several of them in favor of driving to the basket. It's not a bad thing but I think if there is a weakness in his game this might be it.

kshaw04,

Hang in. I've been through the loss of both mine and am in the midst of late life care of my wife's. As Bette Davis said, "Getting old isn't for sissies." Not for the old folks. Not for their children. Not for their grandchildren. Not for anyone.

My only advice: see the cup half full, then a third full, then a quarter, then an eighth, then a sixteenth, then a drop, always focus on what's left, not what they've lost; then know you will remember all of them when they go. Their memory lives on in you intact. It is the strangest experience of life that I have yet had. It is as if they are still there, only they are not.

We all do what we do here for fun. Glad some of it helps some times.

Vaya con dios.

You wondered if your decision to play the video game says something about your character. Well, there's no question that the aforementioned advertising philosophy in this country says something about our culture...and it's not good. Anyway, enjoyed your honest and insightful comments.

Pacific Northwest - Too cloudy Arizona/New Mexico/Nevada Southwest - Too arid Upper Midwest - Too snowy Deep South - Too humid New England - Too lacking in divirsity Mid-Atlantic - Too Tarheely Kentucky/Tennessee -Too Cal-ish. Missouri - Too..........(fill in your own excuse)

All that's left is Southern Cal., New York and the Plains states. I guess that's where there are no excuses and the best talent is bred.

Sarcasm? What's that?

"Cloudism", in Washington and Oregon, that's a good day! When the rain stops and the clouds part, they scream "run - it's that big ball of fire in the sky again"!

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

memhawk,

I've done SoCal. Too hot and too smoggy! NYC. Too humid in summer. Too cold in winter. For awhile I thought Europe was ideal, until I stayed in Paris in July!

Hawaii and Bermuda. These are the only two truly optimal climates on the planet, unless you require seasons. Bermuda is 72 degrees with insigificant variance, or something like that, and its 80-82 year round with a gentle trade wind breeze in Hawaii: either would suit me.

If you can stand just a bit more variance--68-78, I've heard New Caledonia has something to be said for it. And you've gotta love those pineapple buildings Renzo Piano architected there--the Tjibaou Cultural Centre in Nouméa, New Caledonia. Man, I wanna see those before I go.

If you require seasons, either there is no good climate on earth (too extreme, or not extreme enough), or most every where is tolerable.

But all of this concern over "this place is too hot" and "this place is too cold" reminds me of the old joke about when you show up for your appt. with the shrink.

If you're early, the shrink says you're compulsive.

If you're late, the shrink says you're a procrastinator.

And if you're on time, he says you're a perfectionist.

One cannot win with shrinks, or persons very picky about the weather. :-)

This kid is really good. He hasn't even started his final year of high school -- he has a full year to work on his game before college.

His high school Junior highlights reminds me a lot of Julian Wright as a freshman. What a class that would be if Terrence comes with Royce & Harrison Barnes (who is supposedly leaning towards being a Jayhawk right now, albeit with several recruiting trips left.)

Terrence, Royce & Harrison could be a very similar class to Julian Wright, Mario Chalmers & Brandon Rush.

Terrence could be the next big zonebuster @ KU (recall what Julian did to Florida's dream team zone who won back to backs).

Rock Chalk Jayhawk, Terrence -- we look forward to meeting you at Late Night in the Phog.

The article on tapping Kansas women is especially exciting when considering the article says: "Kansas University’s women’s basketball program received oral commitments ". I was scared to read further.

Then, I click away and see that the Kansas rowing team is also tapping assistants.

I walked down the hill in '86, apparently the free love 60s have returned to the hill.

Tony Bandle 10 years, 5 months ago

Just got back from a week of sunning on the Florida Northwest coast, and a cold chill came over me. Reviewing the past week's posts, I have a dreaded premonition that all this almost assumed success and the pre-ordained Kansas National Championship is going to evaporate come next March.

One lesson in life I have learned is that many times, the greatest things you fear turn out to be not so bad and the greatest things you anticipate, fall short. After 61 years {come this Wednesday}, I have seen life rarely if ever follow form.

There is absolutely no reason to doubt the team's final triumph based on the players, the coaches, the tradition, KU Nation and a myriad of other postitve signs.........and that is exactly why the fate of this team remains most uncertain to me.

I truly apologize for this post..it seems I am the only one truly not seeing a good end to next year. I will be the happiest Jayhawk in the world if next April each one of you scolds me with an "I told you so!!!!"

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

OakvilleJHawk,

Your wisdom derived from experience is unimpeachable.

But here is the thing:

Experienced teams fabulously stacked with talent and with a coach in the prime of his career are about the best bets one can have.

I have decided to deal with everyone's high expectations as follows:

I have decided to preface my recent remarks with "if KU players live up to their positive reputations," then this team can go undefeated and win the ring. And if it does that, then this team will be in my opinion the greatest team of all time in college basketball, because of its depth at every position.

I think it is unlikely that every player will live up to his reputation. I think it is unlikely that this team will go injury free. I think it is always possible for a great team on a mediocre team to run into a hot team on a great trey shooting night and lose.

But before the season starts, we are stuck with conditional probabilities. We are stuck with assumptions about performance and injury, and with probabilities based on those assumptions. Assuming inconsequential injuries and high performance by all, this team could very well join the ranks of the greatest of all time.

Bill Self has already proven that he can build the greatest defensive team of all time--Rush's NCAA champion team.

Bill Self now has an opportunity to prove he can build the greatest team of all time.

I do not think Bill Self's personality and style of play are the kinds that lends themselves to an undefeated ring season. Coach Self seems to me not to be a perfectionist in the mold of John Wooden, Bob Knight. He seems more of an expressionist, more of a person prone to improvising his way to greatness. There seems more potential for up and down performances in Coach Self's approach, because his teams are trying to achieve what appears to me a vastly more difficult and complex approach to the game. As I have noted many times, Coach Self tries to build teams that can play opponents any way the opponent dares. Frankly, this requires a lot of talent and a lot of very flexible talent, talent that not only can physically play many different ways, but talent that is psychologically capable and willing to play many different ways.

Coach Self's teams are playing a different kind of basketball than almost all the other teams of today, even those teams that try to ape Okie Ball.

The same could be said of Wooden and his teams in Wooden's time.

The same could be said of Roy Williams teams today.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

But Wooden and Roy were only asking their teams to play the game one way. They were asking them to dictate the tempo and concentrate on how to impose a single style of play on the game.

Bill Self is asking his teams to achieve their fullest potential through taking whatever the opponents give them, at what ever tempo the opponents allow them to play, with whatever sets and matchups are best. This has always seemed both the most sensible way to optimize a team's talent, but also the hardest approach to master. It just does take a lot of games and a lot of different kinds of opponents for players to learn how to play all these different ways. There is in this approach, almost an intrinsic expectation of a period of experimentation and with that experimentation some losses.

Wooden's approach was pretty much a steam roller approach. Build the machine and run over the opponent. If the machine is properly assembled, it ought to work pretty well from the git go. And each game is just a practice repetition of the same steam rolling technique. Improvement is linear and inevitable.

In Self's approach, a team learns how to play one way after few games, then begins learning to play another way for a few games, and so on through the season until it has mastered all the different ways of playing the game. It means the players are never at their peak confidence in their sense of mastery until very late in the season, when Professor Self finally says, "Okay, men, you have seen it all, and now the NCAA is here and there will be no surprises. You know how to turn whatever they use against them. Go get'em!"

But there is always the possibility of running into something in the tourney that you couldn't schedule in the regular season--of running into a style of play that the team really hasn't learned how to play against. And there in lies the particular risk unique to a Self team winning a ring.

So the Self approach bears with it perhaps a greater risk of losing games early due to a longer development period, than the steam roller technique of Wooden's.

And the Self approach bears with it perhaps a greater risk of running into something they haven't seen before, than the Wooden steamroller technique.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

But if Self has so much talent that it can carry itself through the longer development period (which this team may well have), and if scheduling exposes a Self team to everything it is likely to face in the tourney (which this year's rigorous and diverse schedule could well accomplish), then Self could produce an undefeated, ring team that would, for my money, have to be ranked as the greatest single season team of all time. His style of play just can, at its best, beat anything, even a steam roller style like Wooden's.

I've gone through the rosters of the other great single season teams down through years. Several have greater players. But none come close to having this much talent and depth IMHO.

All of the above is a long way of saying, if all were to go well, this would be a helluva team.

But of course your wisdom and experience that things rarely all go well, makes the chance of this eventuality still slim.

This teams development and ability to reach for the stars depends on many things, but the biggest question mark to me is can Xavier's performance match his hype in his first season? Is he really that good out of the box? If he is, then the team can reach for not just the formidable goal of a ring with a few losses along the way, but to the stars; that is, to an undefeated ring season.

For what its worth, I look forward to the season tremendously, because once Coach Self rolls the balls out in the first practice, all the talk about what might be basically becomes grounded in what is.

Once the season starts, the team will enter the challenge of the now and so will we fans. Once the season starts, everything will be sensitively dependent on what just happened and the thrill of making the best of every moment, whether it is a moment following a win, or a loss, will kick in and the living myth of KU basketball will overwhelm all abstraction.

The life of the game will be upon us all.

And it will be redeeming, as always, win or lose.

It is grand to have you back.

"After 61 years {come this Wednesday}, I have seen life rarely if ever follow form." --OakvilleJHawk

You express from experience, what John Lennon did from poetic inspiration.

"Life is what happens to you, while you're busy making other plans." --John Lennon

I vastly more respect your quote than John's, and I vastly respect John's.

As an aside, perhaps your insight hints at why trying to make form follow function, as the old moderns insisted, is so fraught with the challenge of unintended consequences. :-)

And happy 61st!

Yes, I was very bummed out that 59 year old John Hughes, who made so many wonderful teen movies in the 80s and the hilarious and profound "Plains, Trains and Automobiles" about middle age, dropped dead from a heart attack on a walk.

"Lo, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil..."

That Psalm got my dad through three island invasions in World War II.

It got him through having me for a son.

It got me through all that I have gone through.

I offer it to you should you need it to weather your 61st.

And I offer you something lighter, too.

When I was at KU, Roger Morningstar was on the team.

The field house annnouncer in those primitive days--the days before digital scoreboards and the pervasive electronic crowd stimulants of today I have heard about dominating the pre game in the Field House today--well, the field house announcer used to announce the name of the player who just made the basket--a quaint little master of the obvious for those up in the rafters I suppose.

Anyway, I used to loooooove the way the announcer said:

"Basket by Moooooooooorningstarrrrrrrrrrrr!"

I recall this from time to time, when I am feeling some what heavy in the heart.

I do not know why.

I only know it makes me feel better.

Perhaps this is why I am so fond of Brady.

But more likely it is that he is young, can do everything a skilled glue man should be able to do, and can shoot 43% from trey, and faces a great challenge of the kind all competitive young men face. How do I rise above yet another obstacle set in my path? How do I get minutes, when everyone is expecting this Xavier to be so good? How do I do it?

I work my butt off and seize the moment when it comes.

Rock chalk!

Did you mean "Jerk" without a period, as a noun, or as a verb?

The distinction is critical.

If as a noun, then you are calling a good Jayhawk, memhawk, a jerk, and that is indecorous and unsportsmanlike of you. Please apologize to him, or at least give yourself a barium and cornhuskers lotion enema as penance.

If as a verb, then what you do to yourself as you stop typing is up to you, but I think it inappropriate for you to type it, because of our younger readers. Capice?

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

About the jerk comment that is sayings how all your post's are sarcastic.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

gardenjay,

When you finish Les Miserables, look for a copy of Hugo's much less well known sequel, "Les Antlers." It follows the life of several French bourgoisie that go to an inferior school and then spend the next 20 years suffering for having done so. But the novel focuses mainly on ex-aristocratic criminal Val Jeanval. Yes, the book was very derivative, because Hugo by then was cannabalizing his own ouvre. Les Antlers examines the nature of beastiality and disgrace among the decadent and stupid students of the inferior school, The Ecole de Beaux Mouille. Soon, Jeanval incurs the wrath of justice for brazenly advocating that the taboo act of bestiality with a mule ought to be legal in the new world. Jeanval truly believed that the new world ought to be totally free. The novel has Jeanval first advocate this outre proposition, while drunk in a student cheering section of a fencing tournament at the Ecole de Beaux Mouille, after which he is hounded for the rest of his life by an obsessive police inspector Javier Xenry. In demented old age, Jeanval escapes France and finally reaches the New World, but mistakenly settles in Columbia, Missouri, rather than St. Louis, where he originally proposed the immoral and disgraceful act be legal. In the small trading outpost of Columbia, he first meets, then impulsively marries and lives unrepentantly with a mule deer (he mistakes the mule deer for a mule, because of failing eyesight and a poor translation of the noun by a descendant of Pierre LaClede). Jeanval names the mule deer Rosette Cosette. The bizarre relationship lasts till the end of his abysmal life. Supposedly, The Antlers take their name from this little known sequel by Hugo. No one knows why exactly for mule deers lack antlers. But then no one ever accused the Antlers of anything much above beastiality anyhow.

And that's...the rest of the story.

gardenjay 10 years, 5 months ago

Jaybate - thanks but I will just stick to Les Mis for now. Some may say you have the beginnings of a fine American novel there; thank you for weaving in the part about Colombia to make it relevant. Get some sleep for crying out loud!

These guys, Jayhawkinmullin and anthonyzall are in a league of their own and need some serious lernin' about the nuances of subtlety in writing and humor. If you remember the character from the show Taxi, Latka Gravis, his attempts at comedy and humor lost something in his lack of being fluent in the English language. Even Webster's can't truly define sarcasm. Maybe some of the greats like Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks and Woody Allen would be good resources for these two posters. Nah, too shticky!

jaybate news service: the jaybate online interview with anthonyzall

jaybate: Good morning, Mr. Zall How are you today?

anthonyzall: I feel lousy.

jaybate: Do you like posting about basketball at KUsports.com?

anthonyzall: Basket? What's that got to do with anything? I thought I was a volunteer in an online depression study. What basketball?

jaybate: KUsports.com is a website for KU fans, and the Men's Basketball page is a page for fans devoted to KU basketball.

anthonzall: Oh, well, I used to like KU basketball back before I found myself in the gaping maw of depression.

jaybate: I see, Mr. Zall. When did your first depression occur, or has this been a life-long condition?

anthonyzall: Two seasons after the '88 season. I was free of it until this summer when it struck me again. Right now, I have the terrible urge to stick my finger in the light bulb socket of the lamp by my computer...if I had the energy left to unscrew the bulb, that is. Why just yesterday I had the urge to drive into a bridge abutment on the span over the Wakarusa.

jaybate: Hmmm, the span over the Wakarusa? (Pauses and reaches to his book shelf and with draws a thin softcover) I have an old book that might help you. It was written by Sigmund Freud's illegitimate great grand child, Rainer Maria Rilke-Freud, who in fact attended KU during the Larry Brown era and graduated with a Ph.d. in Para-Abnormal Psychology. His dissertated on a psychopathology he named post traumatic championship depression (PTCD) and negative extra-sensory perception (NESP). He says that two summers after the '88 season, when Danny and the Miracles reached the pinnacle, he found himself staring at his reflection in the instrument binnacle of his car and thinking he ought to drive into the bridge abutment over the Kaw and end it all. He said that he hallucinated the negative extrasensory perception that the old bridge's superstructure was a fantastic alien carbuncle claiming to be his Uncle Otto. It bid him toward the abutment to come and join him in another, much darker dimension.

anthonyzall: Really? I have an Uncle Otto, too. Otto Rilke-Freud, a wheat farmer in Ark City.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

jaybate: Your Uncle Otto is probably just a fantastic coincidence, but yes, what I am telling you is absolutely true. But there's good news in this tale. Rainer found a way out of the depth of his own and other's PTCDs with a strict diet of gluten free, cracked wheat, vanilla extract and talk therapy with Karl Menninger. It turns out Karl Menninger had symptomized similarly two summers after the Lovellette team's ring season, but had never been able to get beyond describing it as a syndrome. It seems Karl was allergic to wheat. Maybe it was the gluten. I can't recall now. Anyway, Karl and Rainer worked this treatment regime out for Rainer and it worked. And this can work for you, Mr. Zall. I know it.

anthonyzall: I do have the sense that something from another dimension has been trying to reach me through my cell phone, but...I'm still not sure about all of this.

jaybate: Its been two summers since the Brandon Rush and the Kool Jazz Quintet grabbed the last ring. There's no doubt in my mind. You are having an episode of PTCD and NESP.

anthonyzall: Well, I guess I was wrong about you, jaybate. You're not satan at all. You're really a loathsome, but compassionate saint.

jaybate (to his assistant): Quick, order Mr. Zall some cracked wheat. Right away!

anthonyzall: You know, jaybate, Mr. Zall is not really my last name. My alias is a pun. It means Anthony's All, as in giving his all for KU.

jaybate: I know. jaybate isn't really my name either. My real name is Jason Bateman. (pause) Just kidding.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

Jaybate I am glad to hear that you and memhawk are now bff's. I hope you two can get married and live in Iowa I think it is legal there. Also a jerk is a tug a tug is boat and a boat floats on water and water is beautiful. I think that is what anthonyzall meant to say. Or maybe he did mean he is a jerk maybe anthonyzall is his relative and knows him much better than us maybe he really is a jerk. Peace out

... It was, I think, Huxley, who said that six monkeys, set to strum unintelligently on typewriters for millions of millions of years, would be bound in time to write all the books in the British Museum. If we examined the last page which a particular monkey had typed, and found that it had chanced, in its blind strumming, to type a Shakespeare sonnet, we should rightly regard the occurrence as a remarkable accident, but if we looked through all the millions of pages the monkeys had turned off in untold millions of years, we might be sure of finding a Shakespeare sonnet somewhere amongst them, the product of the blind play of chance.

In the time since this thread started, one monkey could only pound out a four letter word - J e r k !

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

They're closer now. That "..jerk is a tug a tug is a...." is advanced!

Next, it might be something like : A horse is a horse of course of course.......Or, The wheels on the bus go round and round.....

I think we're dealing with the whole" when cousins marry" issue with these two.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

What up with being ass holes to each other, you know, one another KU fans. Kiss and make up. Save the BS for the MU fans. Focus on the really cool year ahead... Not each other. And tapping.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

kuwells,

The LJW is going to have to institute retinal scans and match to his transcripts to make me believe Jayhawkinmullen is really a KU grad. :-)

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

Oh jaybate I was just spouting off nonsense like you do. I just thought you would have appreciated it. Oh well live long and prosper, like the poster says above your bed. Oh yes you know the one. Love you man

Hello Jayhawk Nation,

Just a few weather facts for the rest of you who don't live in the Pacific Northwest--

I live in Eugene, in the southern Willamette Valley in western Oregon. The climate here is considered northern temperate rainforest, which means that we have only a few days each winter when it gets below freezing and a few days each summer when it gets above 95. We have about 8-9 months of rainy weather, in the form of light rain, little wind, and few real storms like I grew up with in Kansas. A typical winter day is scattered showers, highs in the low 50's, overnight lows around 40. In fact, the usual winter overcast is typically very thin, making it necessary to wear shades many days. While we don't have many really big trees around here anymore, (i.e. 300' old growth) I have some Western red cedars and a blue sequoia in my back yard that are about 30 years old and about 60 feet tall! The valley is a lush growing area, and the first winter I was here, I was surprised to see the big box stores putting out there gardening supplies in JANUARY!! With the ocean an hour away and ski areas an hour the other way, many find it easy to live with this "rainy" climate. For years, locals would always stress that to visitors, to hopefully keep them from all moving here. Hasn't worked.

Cheers, and Rock Chalk from the Left Coast!

PS -- I do miss those ripping good Kansas thunderstorms, though. We average about one good T-storm about every two years...

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Maybe Kevin Pritchard could help sway Terrence Jones toward KU. He is in Portland with the Blazers and wouldn't pose an NCAA threat regarding recruiting, I don't believe.

Keep On Tappin'

A jerk is a dope, A dope is a drug, A drug is a hallucinogen A hallucinogen is a mushroom A mushroom is a fungus A fungus is among us. Among us is Jayhawkinmullen.

Hey, this is a pretty fun game.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Say, doesn't Mangino say "keep sawin wood"? Maybe this year it is can be "keep on tappin"!

So, if jayhawkinmullen weighs as much as a duck, he is made of wood, and is therefore a witch? We should burn him!

kansas25 10 years, 5 months ago

I checked out the youtube video. He's gonna be good. Good handles, left handed, can pass, ok shooter. He'll be a player.

Martin Shupert 10 years, 5 months ago

Okay, I read as far as the one about how Bill Self isn't the perfectionist type who would coach a perfect season. Uhhmmmm... it may just be something that is a little harder to do than to be the right type of coach. Knight had one of them. Wooden had a few. Did anyone else ever have them? I mean, come on. But I will say this, though I'm sure KU will lose somewhere along the line this year, I will be watching it with my jaw dropped to the floor in amazement that we are actually getting beaten. Even Knight's team, though, had a game in which they never had a tie or lead from the first bucket by Michigan until after the final buzzer, and yet, they won the game... on a tip at the buzzer. As good as they were, that's how lucky they had to be to go undefeated and win it all. I think it's possible to go wire to wire through a season, but highly highly highly unlikely for anyone.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

jaybate, wanted to get back to you on your last post. I'm afraid I'm only going to be able to give you a B, maybe a B+ on that one. I hope you understand, but we have certain expectations for you. At a minimum, your post could have rhymed...

:)

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

jayhawkinmullen,

Roses are violets Red is blue Love you man Does not ring true.

Still, I see progress emerging here By Night Late for sure mullenjayhawkin Will be a loveable dear.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

Jaybate,

I'll have to admit after reading quite a few of your posts you are a masterjaybater. I forsee a new major at campus. Jaybating for online discussion you'll never earn money but you will earn the respect of a few other posters. I would definatley take a class from you professor jaybate.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

jayhawkinmullen,

"jayhawkinmullen-- how the mighty have fullen."

And I thought we had made such progress bringing a non-grad into the fold. :-)

Where exactly does your obsession to allude to masturjaybation (or at least variations of such) in this august public forum spring from, as youth look on?

Consider me your licensed web hypno-therapist in this matter. Enter with me into a state of hyper relaxation. Welcome to web-hypnotherapy. All your secrets are safe here on this forum. Relax. You are getting sleepy. Deeper and deeper to sleep, way down...

Now, let us begin with your dreams.

Do you dream about Robert Rauschenberg's sculpture of the goat ringed by a car tire?

Do you have recurrent dreams about earth-toned popsicles?

Do you find yourself constantly re-reading the Brigadier General Pudding chapters in Gravity's Rainbow?

Do you find yourself a FEMA COG web disinformation specialist working in the nude at a computer somewhere below ground in suburban Maryland?

Do you dress up in a Barbara Feldon, single-shoulder strapped tiger leotard and secretly root for Mizzou?

Have you had fantasies of being ridiculed by The Antlers rooting section in Columbia, and liking it?

Now, as you contemplate these questions, in the coming weeks I want you to visualize being kind to jaybate in print. You can use any of the following compliments:

jaybate, you are a great wit.

jaybate, you are everything I ever hoped to be.

jaybate, you make me proud to be a human being.

jaybate, your knowledge of basketball is vast and your analyses infallible.

jaybate, your teeth are incredibly white.

jaybate, you have helped make me become a better person.

now, jayhawkinmullen, I will reinforce a post-hypnotic suggestion that someone else apparently perhaps planted in you previously, and so may have predisposed you to use repeatedly:

"I love you man."

Note: this is all joshing. I am not a licensed web hypnotherapist and jayhawkinmullen has no pathology. He just likes to allude to masturjaybation (or variations of same) in public. He is a fine, upstanding member of this basketball web site and is merely being a team player and momentarily fulfilling the quasi-function of jayhawkinmullenKelly, to my jayRegis.

I love you man.

Oops, I hypnotized myself, too! :-)

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

Jaybate,

Your right I concede to this frivolous bickering back and forth. Your hours of research on one single post is impeccable. While others including myself just jot down a post in a blink of an eye, you mull over it possible calling in an editor or two. I must admit I don't have the time nor the energy to create works of art ur posts on this website like you. You are truly one of a kind and I believe this website is better for truly.

Love you man seriously I do

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

If jayhawkinmullen were in charge of the military, would:

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

kuwells,

Wow with all the tapping, jaybation, and now penis shaped missile comments this might be the most perverted posts ever.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Hey, the LJW started with all the tapping. Rowers tapped. Womens BB players tapped. Darnell Jackson got involved somehow on the mens side. I personally think Meghan Fox should be tapped for something. Excuse me while I transform...

I think you introduced jaybation to the jayhawk nation. Personally, I might not be able to recover from that visual. I will find you in Nebraska and personally deliver the bill for my therapy. Perhaps it is time to up the voltage in your psychotherapy sessions? Nothing like negative reinforcement through electrical stimulation. Works in the Die Hard movies.

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

jayhawkinmullen,

Yeah, this is really hard to write what I write. It takes a real high IQ. I work and work on it. I edit it and I actually hire a copy editor from Atlantic Monthly to give it intellectual pith.

I love your perverted posts. You give me nipple definition. Love you back. You're my favorite. Really.

(jaybate breaks down third wall and looks out at the readers.)

I am enjoying this game.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Speaking of definitions. Isn't the English language interesting. There can be two words that are pronounced the same that are used in different contexts. The audible word can be either a verb or a noun depending on its requirement. The two words are spelled similarly but with slight differences. I can think of many examples but the first that comes to mind are the words : retch and wreatch.

I don't know why, but this just popped into my head and I though I would share it with the class.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Here's a good game. Sort of a puzzle. Who get's it?

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Nipple definition? Careful jaybate, your playing with fire. I could be an inmate with internet access. With all this tapping... I'm getting all worked up. Meghan Fox? Oh who am I kidding. I want you. And, please, no fourth wall or I'll have to tunnel out under this wall!

Do I really need to add a disclaimer?

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Ummmmkay class. Buehler? Buehler? Anyone? Anyone?

This is a story about a girl.

While at the funeral of her own mother, she met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing, so much the dream guy that she was searching for that she fell in love with him immediately.

However, she never asked for his name or number and afterward could not find anyone who knew who he was.

A few days later the girl killed her own sister.

Question: Why did she kill her sister?

My guess is that jayhawkinmullen knows the answer. Dare he share???

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

An amusing sidebar:

On the kusports home page, this is #2 under active discussions. Right below "three preps tap Kansas women".

Oh the irony...

jaybate 10 years, 5 months ago

jaybate news service:

Bulletin: Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta identifies Prep Tapping Syndrome (PTS) as the next potential health crisis facing the country. CDC researches have recently been dispatched to Lawrence, Kansas, to begin to study the first three cases of PTS. The syndrome--the pathogen has yet to be isolated and identified--manifests as extreme ambiguity in reporting language followed by sudden outbursts of blogging hysteria. Early cases indicate prep tapping is nonlethal, but can cause overloaded bandwith on local web sites. Stay tuned to your local channels for further announcements from CDC.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

kuwells, Lets just put it this way I'm sitting in Leavenworth Pen right now.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

jaybate... Oh my, that is funny. Do I sense a bulletin forthcoming on jaybation???

Lets see if it meets the tests:

Reporting ambiguity - check.
Blogging hysteria - check.

I hope this doesn't be come an epidemic, or dare I say, pandemic.

I am going to miss this thread.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

jayhawkinmullen

Now I understand your posts more clearly. I would presume being gang raped can be a tramatic experience and subsequently impact ability for coherent thought. Hang in there, princess. Just consider it your own personal stimulus package.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

My mind has gone in so many directions since hearing about Jayhawinmullen's situation. I've decided to take the high road.

If in fact this is the truth and not just some sort of weird story being conjured up, it should help us in understanding more about him. It did take guts to "come out" as he did. His life is one that very few of us have known or will ever know firsthand. I wish him the best and respect his attempts to contribute to the Jayhawk faithful.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

memhawk:

I was a little shocked to read that he was "sittin" in prison. I've seen prison movies and I can only assume sittin can be stingy. I suppose that's a tribute to Obama's health care reform and miracle salves.

Jayhawkinfederalpoundmyassprison:

I echo mem's comments. I hope your debt to society is swiftly repaid. Remember: snitches and bitches end up in stitches. And as my cousin Vinnie once told me, "ku, the trick is to kick someones ass the first day or be the bitch". Personally, I can't believe mopery is a crime.

Best of luck. Your pen pal.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

kuwells- Never heard the reason why the girl killed her sister in your story.

It's not one of those: because the girl was an executioner and her sister was in prison due to be executed stories is it?

This story prompted that "im in Leavenworth" admission. You've got to spill the beans!

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

You guys are hilarious this too is my favorite thread I have ever posted on. I have driven thru Leavenworth but have never lived there. I don't think they even have computers there, if they did we would have had mike vick posting on here right. He definitely would have posted under dog pound I don't remember that name popping up.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

but to answer kuwells in all seriousness she killed her sister so that she would meet back up with the guy again.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Winner winner, chicken dinner.

jayhawkinmullen wins (or loses)...

But first, awesome on Michael Vick - I laughed out loud on that one. But, I was beginning to think he was posting as jayhawkinmullen.

Answer to the question: She reasoned that if the guy appeared at her mother's funeral, then he might appear another family funeral. So, if she killed her sister, she just might meet the man of her dreams again.

So, if you answered this correctly, you think like a psychopath. This was a test by a famous American psychologist used to test if one has the same mentality as a killer. Many arrested serial killers took part in this test and answered correctly.

http://www.naute.com/puzzles/puzzle22.php

So, let me take a second to apologize to you Mr. Vick, or jayhawkinmullen. I didn't mean to f*ck with a psychopath. Hell, I was married to one for 15 years. I should have seen the signs. For the record, my real name is Roy Williams and I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I shouldn't be hard to find.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

In all seriousness... you never said what the hell a chalax is ("I'm thinking female by the way chalax."). Google does not provide insight. Please, before the LJW staff deletes this post forever, please answer memhawks question!

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Hannibal jayhawinmullen:

Touche' You got us!

Goes to show you, we can never Really be sure who we're chatting with on here or anywhere else these days. Thank goodness for the privacy acts!

Seriously though, Leavenworth? I bet it's more like the Douglas County Jail.

Since kuwells revealed his true identity, I must also. Memhawk in real life is really .............Mike Alden, Athletic Director, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Oh yeah, and my wife is ....us...ah......Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that's right!

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Morgan Fairchild.... Mmmmm. I'd tap that. Apparently, so would Rick Patino. Did you see the photo of that trailer park troll (no offense jayhawkinmullen) that tried to bribe him? He did her in a Louisville restaurant!

So, the next time anyone is dining in Louisville, please check and make sure they have sanitizer in the kitchen. And check the health department scores... And ignore that stain on the table cloth. And the placard "Rick Patino was here" on the wall adjacent to the booth.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

definition of chalax- it comes from the movie school of rock when jack black says to someone dude chalax or in other words relax.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

At least the other major basketball coach in Kentucky doesn't do his tapping in a stall in a restaurant. He does it out in the open to all of the school's fans and supporters like a real man.

The whole relationship thing between Pitino, the woman and her husband sounds a little kinky, doesn't it?

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Oh, I see. It's chill and relax joined together.

Thanks dude!

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

OMG! That's hilarious. I never thought about it in that context! Think "Sleepless in Seattle". The quote "I'll have what she's having."

Picture a nice little Cardinal booster meeting. Five star restaurant. Condoms sponsored by Louisville Slugger (yes, I meant that pun). A freaking number dispenser and a "now serving number xx" sign.

Perhaps we can get an interview with Padgett and see what he did for half time motivation.

Booster club dinner: $50.00 Souvenier condom: $5.00 Watching your head coach tap trailer trash Barbie on the dessert table: priceless

Brings new meaning to head coach.

Wonder if he has a fluffer?

I'll stop now...

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

jayhawkinDblock

You're quoting Jack Black now? That's sad. Ok, I'll bake you a cake with a file in it tomorrow morning.

What kind of cake would you like? I know its lights out over there now, so answer when you can. And don't even think that pretending you haven't lived in Leavenworth will work. Don't be shy. You've come out. Stay out!

Hope you make it through the night with your sphinctal virginity intact.

Your pal,

Roy

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

kuwells,

I have lost all respect for you, I can't believe you are dissing on Jack Black one of the greatest minds to ever walk the earth. Sure he hasn't been in a good movie since well um, never but man he will be remembered as an American hero trust me. And as for the breaking out comment don't worry I already have and I'm coming for you broseph!! Oh wait he was in a good movie briefly Anchor Man, you see a great mind, he should have one an Oscar for that role as the man who caught a burrito in his lap.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Don't forget Kung Fu Panda. And he was amazing in Tropical Thunder.

I just hope he doesn't go like Chris Farley (vapour locking on top of a whore. Poor lady of the evening. I bet she hit meth hard after that experience).

You know, I bet the LJW staff can't imagine why they have 112 comments on a two paragraph article on a scholarship offer to a kid where it is too cloudy.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

Hey, JayhawkinUSPLeavenworth...

Please explain something. I just watched the Michael Vick press conference. He just said that he has a 1 year old child. WTF? How? He's been locked up in USP Leavenworth for 2 years. I thought conjugal visits weren't real. Can you share any insight? No shower stories please.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

Hey kuwells,

I was curious about something. Just for kicks, I Googled Mullen (jayhawkinMULLEN). It seems that there is a Mullen, Nebraska in Hooker County. There are less than 800 people in the whole county and over 90% of them are in the only incorporated town, Mullen. Could it be that our friend is one of those 700 or so folks?

Mullen is awfully close to mullet. Is it possible that we have a true mullet wearin', Jayhawk-lovin' possible con or ex-con on our board? The Hooker County thing is such a treat also. All that's left to say is Yeehaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

memhawk:

Dangerously close to being a stalker! Splendid research.

Actually, that is awesome research. One city in the county and it is Hooker. Wow! I'm not sure where to go first!

I would only think he lives in that county if it has a trailer park. I suspect it is more likely that is where his parents live and where his welfare check goes while he's in Leavenworth.

He's been quiet for a while. I just hope someone isn't wearing his head for a hat.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

IF it has a trailer park? The whole damn town is probably a trailer park! (not that there's anything wrong with living in a box)

It's not stalking, it's investigation.

I'm just wondering what the occassion was (in the photo that meremy produced) that they had folding chairs set up in what looked like a parking lot. Maybe it was the annual Mullen Mullett Days Parade going through the parking lot at the general store. Or it could have been the Hooker County Fair, highlighted by the "Who has the most teeth left contest"

He might be on his way to the LJW compound to break in and get our real identities. That's why we haven't heard from him in a while.

Kent Wells 10 years, 5 months ago

No, the boxes should just have wings on them so they have a chance when they come back down!

I tapped jayhawkchick134. What can I say. A hottie is a hottie.

I think the contest at the Hooker County Fair might be way more interesting. Perhaps a variation on bobbing for apples.

Thank goodness we've already given him our real names. Right Mr. Alden?

121 comments on a cloudy story. Amusing.

Martin Rosenblum 10 years, 5 months ago

I think Hooker County has lost their internet connection. We don't seem to be getting any response from the butt of our jokes.

Goodnight Roy. See you on another board.

Ryan Mullen 10 years, 5 months ago

I just got out of solitary confinement because of all the things that were said about my home county. I beat some guy up and trashed my cell. And now I have grown weary of these posts so I am off to another.
