Brownback says KU will beat Ohio State by 5

Last week, Gov. Sam Brownback predicted the Jayhawks would beat North Carolina State by five points; they won by three. Today he said KU would be Ohio State by five.

That fact that you are commenting on this means you cared enough to check it out. Lets leave our politics off the site. Many of us find it fun when Obama or a celebrity talk about the Jayhawks. Brownback is no different.

Quit talking about our university, dic...tator!

Sir, yes sir!

Or, you could just not read/respond to my post.

Not being a native in the heck did you all elect a guy with the name of Brownback as your governor?? Was Pee Wee Herman his opponent??

Tony Bandle 5 years, 12 months ago

He looks like "Shooter McGavin" from Happy Gilmore!!!

Don't you know that right-wing conservative kooks always win in Kansas? If you'll recall, we are the state that tried to get "intelligent design" forced down our kids' throats in public school. Brownback has christian weirdos join him in the Capital Building, pray extensively with him, and tell him that he's doing god's work (Seriously, I couldn't make this up. There's video on this.). For most people, that sounds like a nightmare. For insane right-wing Kansans its a utopia of sorts.

Better than left wing weirdos.........stinking Troll!

Back to KU Basketball !

I don't think you understand what a troll is.

Way to generalize, I see that you're able to be objective. He made a basketball prediction, not a state of the State address. By the way, how many States in your world?

HawkKlaw 5 years, 11 months ago

Heh. Well, I was responding more to the "how in the heck did you all elect a guy..." allegation (my response to the article is above). Sorry for getting all political on everyone in a politician article, but don't blame Brownbackistan on me or the good people of Lawrence! C'mon now!

Except for the basketball team and coach Self (mostly from other states) the entire State of Kansas is inhabited by a bunch of neanderthals who elect idiots to the state legislature who hate women and hate sex and hate science like all the republicans. Until there is an abortion clinic is every hick town (they are all hick towns) I will have nothing but derision for the place.

gchawk 5 years, 11 months ago

What a hater. If I wasn't such a delusional idiot, I'd actually feel sorry for you, but because of my limited abilities and mindset, I'm simply not capable.

Hey, I live in western Kansas and the whole town that I live in think he's great. There is some kid from this town that worships Brownback and attends KSU thinks that KSU is a bastian of liberalism that shouldn't be tolerated by the tax paying citizens of Kansas.

Robert Murphy 5 years, 11 months ago

He should go back to his hick village and get a brain.

LJW- follow this up and tell us what John Kasich predicts! Come on, I'm dying to know!

Here's my prediction- This Brownback gorilla will say the same thing for next game if we get there. I know I'm going out on a limb here.

My guess is that Kasich predicts OSU by five. But then again, who gives a f@#%.

Let us know when a governor is telling his electorate that their team sucks and will lose!

Do any of us think that will ever happen?

Jeeveshawk 5 years, 12 months ago

ut-oh, if brownback says something it must be wrong, and i want to win

Jason Njoroge 5 years, 12 months ago

So what, is this Brownback's way of trying to win over the City of Lawrence? I really don't care about his prediction on KU Basketball. In fact, I blame him if we lose!!

fansincewilt 5 years, 12 months ago

I think he won our state by a pretty hefty margin. He was also a respected senator for several years. Winning or losing has nothing to do with Obama's or Brownback's predictions. Like it or not there are some Kansas fans that also have conservative views. The liberal views of government spending and government growth has not been good for our country. It is time we get in a few more conservatives into government and get this runaway spending under control. However, some of you guys wouldn't know about that, would you?

ajhk 5 years, 12 months ago

wilted wit-

Thanks for the education. Drop out of the third grade perhaps?

Warning- keeps your politics off here and enjoy your teams success or get intellectually mutilated.

fansincewilt 5 years, 11 months ago

Nice reply when you have nothing worthwhile to say - normal comeback by a leftist liberal.

Robert Murphy 5 years, 11 months ago

No, your the one who doesn't know what they are talking about as the conservatives (Reagen and Bush) ran up the biggest deficits in history and Reagan also had the biggest tax increase in history. Only Clinton managed to balance the budget. I'll try not to confuse you with facts fansincewilt cause I'm sure you are a fox news listener and have heard so many lies by now you wouldn't know the truth if it fell on you. Stop spending more than half the budget on the military and maybe we could fix some roads and bridges and send more people to get an education. There seems to be plenty of money for vaginal probes.

Hey everyone,

Come on, this is about KU basketball! Isn't a guy allowed to make a prediction? We are all KU fans here. Let's just root for our guys and enjoy a good game.

... If we want to verbally rip someone... Might I suggest Calipari...?

Robert Murphy 5 years, 11 months ago

No, Calipari is one of the five best coaches in college basketball. On the other hand, Brownback is one of the stupidest governors in America, along with Walker from Wisconsin and Kaisch from Ohio, not to mention that crook in Florida and the retard in Texas.

prusso25 5 years, 11 months ago

Wow! You are so much smarter than all of them combined! You should have their job. Sounds like every conservative in this world is a complete moron and every liberal in existence is smart and perfect. Simple conservatives like myself should consider ourselves lucky to even be allowed to live in a country with liberals! At least allow us to bask in the glow of your brilliance, if not for a moment.
