Why didn't KU have a 1st-team AP All-American? It's complicated

It's kind of a travesty to be honest. Dotson and Doke both rose to the challenge against one of the players that was on the first team. They combined for 60 points against Dayton. They went undefeated after losing to Baylor. I can see Toppin and Doke going 1 & 2 in any order, but Dotson is the best point guard in the nation. Not just because he is the floor leader, but he can take over games and when the ball was in his hands when the going got tough, he met the challenge almost every single time. The one game in the Big 12 KU lost, Dotson missed most of it due to his injury in that game. Dotson is a for sure 1st team guy in my view.

Sometimes it's better to take it tongue in cheek. It seems to me that it was sarcasm.

No March Madness: NCAA cancels national championship tournaments

You cannot persuade me that this move is not overreaction. The NBA did, so all the other sport leagues are trying to be "virtuous". But the people that are going to hurt this weekend that include the players, the fans, the coaches, the people that work at the venues, the fans watching or listening from home or work, etc. The other virus threats that we have faced have been much worse than this and it was played down by the media and those that oppose Trump. Then all of a sudden, Trump didn't act quickly enough even though there haven't been more than 10,000 deaths from it like H1N1 when Trump was not President. You keep playing games like this, you're going to be viewed negatively when the history books are written. Especially if this thing is over in a month and all this action taken the day after Trump had the address to the nation last night. But none of you that mention Trump's name really care or you would have cared when 11,000 people died from h1n1 when Obama was President, but you didn't so it's easy to tell you're not being sincere.

No March Madness: NCAA cancels national championship tournaments

We don't have nearly as many people with the symptoms either, and we don't have that many cases in the United States. It wouldn't matter to you if he acted on it 3 months ago, you wouldn't be happy because he doesn't have a D after his name. Stop acting out of bad faith.

This has nothing to do with Trump. It isn't spreading that fast. It is a faster response than there was with H1N1 and Swine Flu, and far fewer people have died from this. This is way over the top and it is driven by a dishonest national news media.

NCAA announces upcoming basketball tournaments will be played without fans in attendance

It's bizarre. They don't know who has it, because so many are asymptomatic of the Corona Virus. They could be carrying it without knowing it, and they can have already had it and not known it because the symptoms were mild and are really the same symptoms as a common cold or flu. But I don't see a reason to panic yet.

Finishing the job: No. 1 Jayhawks cap Big 12 title with road win at Tech

On TT's last 3 point attempt, it was not a foul either. They called one on Doke with 4 minutes left that was also not a foul. Doke went straight up and the player went into him. Doke is entitled to that space. But it didn't matter in the end.

Game Day Breakdown - No. 3 Kansas vs. Iowa State

KU shouldn't overlook Iowa State, but should come out with intensity that Iowa State cannot match and just overwhelm the first half. Destroy Iowa State's morale early and often. It's not just showing up. Defense, strong to the hole, and good passing. I will be disappointed if we don't just destroy them early and often. This is not one to have to look back on and say, "If only we had just focused that night".

Leave that up to the coaches. Since Braun's been starting, we haven't lost a game.
