Bash me if you want, but I am thrilled to see Kansas get FOUR appearances on CBS this year. CBS has been jilting us on how many of our games they televise ever since Roy Williams left, and a proud program like ours deserves four games on CBS each year. Being on an ESPN channel means nothing. But being on CBS is something special.

And best of all, they took a balanced approach, televising two of our away games (Ohio State and Texas) and two of our home games (Temple and West Virginia).

You have to live through the embarrassment of football season to get to basketball season. Not many places in the country are talking about basketball right now. Embarrassment was having your student section filled with K-State students at the Football game in lawrence last year. The football game in Manhattan will be watched by more people nationally than any bball game in the winter. That's life...

A minor gripe to be sure, but two years in a row now our biggest rivalry KSU is relegated to Big12 network. That should always be a national game, The game at KSU is always great theater, they're pumped up to play their best game of the year, their crowd fanatical, and we either walk away with a hard fought victory or give the nation what they want to see, a highly ranked team losing.

We always get to see the other truebloods top rivals, Kentucky-Tenn/Louisville, Duke-UNC, etc. We are in the same elite echelon with those teams so why aren't we treated the same?

It's strange. The first thing I was looking for was when we play missouri. It was always fun pounding on that but the way it ended, that's ok with me! =D

Hopefully, my good friend, Wilbur Nether, will invite me to the ESPN Gameday, Saturday, Feb. 16th against Texas.

Tough call since that game falls smack dab between Valentine's Day and my wonderful wife's birthday!!

Still, you gotta have your priorities, right!!??

The first game with Huggo Muggo will be big. A dominant submissive relationship needs to be established immediately. KU dominant.

At the same time, welcome to our new eastern anchor for post election expansion of the B12 TV footprint into the eastern time zone and expansion of Northeast branch of the super corridor. Regional infrastructure alliance here we come...if Mitt gets the nod. :-)

Will be fun to play against Huggy Bear again...

That Baylor game on Jan. 14 is going to be huge. We'll be a young team playing early in the season. I suppose they are young too.

is this a dream, our divorce is finalized!

Beyond that last game, the conference schedule is really more "front loaded". Granted, the road game on a Monday at Iowa State is not a cake walk but overall, the last six are not as hard as the six before them...

Looks loot at each Big 12 road game, because I am assuming we will hold at home every time. at Texas Tech- KU by double digits-- at Texas - big environment for newbies - loss by 8-- at Kansas State- KU dominance -- at West Virginia - Win and let's get some east coast Jayhawks to show up there and show the freshmen our committment level as fans-- at TCU - KU win by 20 -- at Oklahoma - KU wins so big every player, even Manning, gets more than 3 minutes of PT-- at Oklahoma State - Okie ball holds on by a thread stall most of the game as the shot clock is on the fritz that night-- at Iowa State - Hilton magic exposed...KU by 3 -- at Baylor - high flyiing bears beat us on the boards by 12 and we lose by 9

Anyone if KU is going to sell half season tickets this year? Thanks!

Nevermind, I just read it's really just ESPN changing the name on their station to package it as the Big12 Network


escaped_labrat 1 year, 8 months ago

Wow, I'm still coming to grips with "Big12Network"? When did this come about or am I misinterpreting something?

Once again, on paper, KU has a chance to get off to a quick 2-0 start which is important heading into the Baylor/Texas/K-State games. KU will be heavily favored in the first two. Nothing's guaranteed, but how many games in a row do you folks see KU winning to open the conference season? I think last year KU rattled off 7 in a row.

closing the season at baylor could be a huge game. the tough strech is Jan14th to Feb 16th' 10 games in a little over a month that will def challenge us. Will be great to watch them fight through this stretch of games, will def help get us ready for the tourney. Rock Chalk
