Comment history

KU says all home and away athletic events canceled indefinitely

Arguments such as McCabe's imply that panic and overreaction is somehow appropriate. There is a balance that should be pursued here. What is happening is actually unprecedented in history. Fear and fear induced overreaction is spreading faster than the virus. There have been many prior pandemics that have ended without anything like the broad knee jerk reactions we are seeing this week. Therefore Robert is well supported in calling this an overreaction.

Moreover McCabe's hysterical appeal to "Death" and his arrogant mocking is exactly the kind of commentary that causes reasonable discourse to break down - further exacerbating the problem.

A little respect for reasonably held views, including frustration over the excessive actions of administrators would go a long way.

Big 12, other conferences cancel basketball tournaments

This is an artifact of the social media echo chamber we live in. People die every day from all kinds of things. If a generalized "people are dying from this" is a reason to cancel, then we should cancel our lives altogether. Does no one have the spine to say, lets be reasonable about this?!

Improved activity on both ends leads to season-high 21 minutes for KU freshman Christian Braun

I have us beating Nova, but Baylor, Tech, and WV will be tough outs especially when playing away from home. I agree with Shannon - at least 3 conference losses - with their associated ranking drops.

Dotson named Player of the Week, KU No. 2 in NET rankings and an apology about the latest ESPN+ broadcast

Is there any way to DVR Espn+? My two biggest problems with ESPN+ is the poor video quality relative to cable, and second that I have not found a way DVR. That and the additional cost makes me wish KU had not gone to this outlet.

Former KU guard Quentin Grimes excited for fresh start at Houston

Name one KU player that transferred and then did anything in the NBA.
This was the most ludicrous move I have ever heard of. After thinking he was one and done, but wasn't, he instead transfers from KU to a midmajor so that he can sit out a year. Cant wrap my head around it.

One prep decision and one transfer visitor highlight busy Monday for Kansas basketball

Strayer, this is obviously not true. By nearly every measure, the Big 12 has been among the top 2 or 3 leagues in the NCAA every year. Many of the years we have been numerically the best top to bottom league.

Sophomore guard Charlie Moore to transfer from KU

People love to criticize figures like HOF HCBS, because for that moment they create for themselves the delusion that they know something he doesn't. Everyone else can see the stupidity of doing this, but the arrogant self deceived cannot.

Sophomore guard Charlie Moore to transfer from KU

Its one thing to blossom at KU and another to blossom at a perrennial non NCAA Tournament school like Nebraska. HOF HCBS has spent one week out of the top 25 over his tenure here because he has made the decisions that have led to success.

Notebook: KU coach Bill Self on season: ‘I’m really proud of our guys’

Self can devise great quick hitting plays, for example in-bounding plays, but he leaves much to his players to decide what to do in half court offense. Roy by contrast always seemed to have brilliant offensive plays - but everyone knew them by the end of the year. It seemed to me that this year, because of our youth, Self should have provided more designed plays and left less decision making up to the players - especially during the tourney. They just looked so lost at times.

3-point loving Northeastern to meet KU in Round 1

My hopes for the game:

0. Come out with a fire on D!

1. Team Rebounding! Lots of three attempts = lots of long rebounds.

2. Make our layups! Pound it inside to Dedrick, DMac & Lightfoot

3. Post-up Marcus & Quentin against their smaller guards (against man-d).

4. Nice interior passing (hi/low, drive & dish, mini-oop) instead of drawing charges.

5. Quality officiating
