I like that we have heros and villains in the league...gives it more juice. There can only be one KU anyway, and everyone else is just fodder for us in the grand scheme. Bring on the season. Can't wait.

Networks will fight to show Wiggins and the Jayhawks. If we beat Duke early, look out! I never liked Travis Ford as a player until he left Mizzou to go to Kentucky. Then as a coach, I admired they way he used his guards, even the tiny, itty bitty ones. He does deserve credit getting OSU on big Monday 4 times.

Nice. Now the next big thing would be that they've replaced Brent Musberger. Bob Knight may have been annoying at times, but at least he knew something about basketball and said something besides the obvious.

On another note, I hope CBS gets us on the air four times also. An ESPN telecast means nothing to me - everyone gets on ESPN - but a CBS telecast is something special, because only the very best get to be on CBS.

I hope that when we go to the nasty sinkhole that is Ames, Iowa, we won't have to listen to the ESPN hacks going on and on about how nice those people are and what a great man of character Fred Hoiberg is, when we all know that those people are hateful racist rubes with no future beyond their smelly pig farms, and that Fred Hoiberg tolerates their racism and uses shady recruiting tactics to lure castaways to such a sinkhole.

When did KU lose a Big Monday home game?

PismoBeach, I'm pretty sure Baylor is still in Texas.

Most of the games aren't that exciting. You would think KU/UT, OSU/KU, would be the premier games. Of course this is the danger with our conference, half of the schools in our conference don't draw national attention (e.g. ISU, KSU, TCU, BU, TTU).

Yes, I would like a LJW viewing guide - which games are on which channels - since this s**t just got confusing.

I assume Gameday will be in Stillwater for the other KU OSU game.

I'm surprised there's not a KU-OSU Big Monday game this year although I'm betting one of them will be a Gameday game this year. I'm also surprised Texas and West Virginia aren't on a Big Monday game, those two are usually locks for 1 or 2 appearances a year.

Anyone know what the status is of living in Lawrence and being able to watch early season games? Will WOW carry? Will U-Verse carry? Thanks
