No. 7 Kansas earns gritty 65-62 win over No. 20 Kentucky in Champions Classic

Random Thoughts:

1] Not exactly a clinic on how to play basketball but any night that KU beats Kentucky and Duke loses at home has to be special!!

2] Mitch might as well grab that extra year and set an all-time record for games as a Hawk.

3] Wilson looks like the real deal.

4] One encouraging note, we won with Braun and McCormick combined shooting about 3 for 100!!

5] If this UK bunch stays together for three years, they could win a NC.

6] With Nova and Duke losing, we'll back at least at #5 and maybe #4.

7] Even if basketball is played COVID style, it's such a relief from the election, the pandemic
and everybody being mad at each other,

Quick recap: No. 6 Kansas surrenders 102 points in loss to No. 1 Gonzaga in season opener

Random Thoughts:

1] It appears that Bill may have to tweek his man to man defense a tad!!

2] Turn overs and missed free throws....the beat goes on.

3] KU has a cycle that every few seasons we have a true chance to win a championship. This is not one of those seasons.

4] No sour grapes....the Zags beat us, but boy, there were some bad calls against us.

5] Well, the good news is that it's early, we played one of the best teams in America, and, at times, showed some grit and fought back to single digits and the game film will provide a good template on how not to play defense !!

6] At time, the freshman looked like freshmen, but I think there is a lot of potential there.

7] Score 90 points and get beat by double digits......the next full practice will be a doozy!!!!!

First-rounder: KU big man Udoka Azubuike drafted No. 27 overall by Utah in 2020 NBA draft

The Utah Jazz spirit of Greg Oostertag lives on!!! Dok, ask for that 00 jersey number just for old time's sake!!

Please correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Greg play like 10 or 12 years and made over 100 million dollars?

P.S. He was a Jazz Man as of 10:30 telling where he might be in the morning.
What a goofy league!

Draft day finally here for former Jayhawks Udoka Azubuike, Devon Dotson

I had to read the part about his vertical leap three times!!....37 INCHES!!!!

For a guy with that kind of body build it would be like having a battleship that can go the
speed of a PT Boat!!!

Surely, as the WWF style of physical play in the NBA dominates, someone will see him as
a real asset.

PS. Scott..yes....anybody but Sacramento!!

Senior forward Silvio De Sousa leaving Kansas basketball program

Random Thoughts:

1] We will miss his big body and energy on the court and, even more, in the practice gym.

2] After all the crap he went through, I really can't blame him for a "reboot" for his life.

3] I'm happy to see two of my favorite posters showing up almost simultaneously on the same article. Let the battle of wits begin!!

4] My only question...and I don't have an losing Silvio REALLY going to hurt the '20-'21 Hawks???

5] Am I alone in praying for this upcoming election to be OVER!!!!!

He Will, He Won't, He Might 2020: Mitch Lightfoot

Based on what we are hearing about a "bonus year" for any athlete during the winter sports, my guess is Mitch could be a six year guy......three years, a red shirt year, his senior year and a bonus year.

Can someone help me here, this scenario possible???

Hall of Famer, former KU football star Gale Sayers dies at 77

Watching Gale destroy my St. Louis Football Cardinals, I was amazed at how effortless he looked while seemingly moving at a different speed than the rest of the players.

Another football great who just recently passed, Larry Wilson, said that Gale was possibly, next to Jim Brown, the hardest man to tackle during his entire career.

Lou Brock, Gale Sayers, Larry Wilson.....this has been a hard month for me. :(

Keith... UK?, at Colorado?, USC?, Missouri? [they always play out of their asses against us], SFA?, either Georgetown, at UCLA or Virginia?.....if we get through this schedule 12-0, I'll buy you a keg of beer at The Wheel!! :]

PS That is if we even get to play basketball in 2020. Don't be surprised if the Power Conferences end up like the football teams and play only conference games....just say'n.
