Good discussion, as usual. I always enjoy listening. But I would correct Tom on the "rubber match" comment. I believe rubber match typical means that the teams are about to play a 3rd and deciding game after splitting the first two. Not the case here as KU swept KSU. :)

Correct, as I am a former front office CFO of a baseball team.

Did you get beaned or something?

The term "rubber match" is from the (card) game of bridge, when "match point" scoring is not being used. A "rubber" is scored when one partnership wins two matches – either two straight or two of three. When a third match is necessary, it is indeed called the "rubber match" because it decides who wins the rubber.

Great discussion-

you guys should invest in some clip-on mics so it sounds more professional than just 1 mic in a room.

Very nice discussion. The really compelling line from Mr, Keegan was regarding whether a team believes in themselves. I think Kansas is fragile in that area along with Duke, Indiana, Michigan, Syracuse, Louisville, Florida and Okie State. The most talented team may be Indiana but I would think Kansas could beat any of these unless we go inept on "O" and get down too far. That's when you need to believe.
