Guys, This is great to see you in video. Very good idea. You guys have done heck of a job for this site. I really appreciate all of your creative efforts.

Like the video, but cant get it on my Blackberry, so want to see the words, or at least the highlights of the conversation....cliff notes? Thanksguys

-Purdue plays small, sort of like Mizzou or Iowa St. -Will Purdue (no pun intended, tehehe) try to play big, or come out small and make KU adjust -Self hates giving up easy points, so he'll often try to match playing style -Tait loves this matchup for KU, Jesse hates it

-Tait: KU by 17, HTR TRob -Jesse: KU by 2, HTR TT

Is Jesse aware of the number of widely-used devices that can't open Flash? The tournament is a kind of silly time to decide to be innovative.

Missouri winning the national championship?

pepper_bar 5 years, 9 months ago

Yeah, it was a hedge in case they did well and KU didn't. That pick is certainly fair game for mockery.

And I'm not trying to harsh on Jesse, he does a good job, and I know Flash is the LJW standard, not Jesse's. But after a season of enjoyable written pregame columns, it is a bummer that we can't read them during the tournament. Maybe it's just because the staff lacks time to write these things while on site.

I agree...probably not the best time to try a new medium...but if you are kind of give both options.

I was giving you a hard time, because who picks MU as a KU Fan. I had trouble giving them the first round game, but I couldn't give them two wins. I'm disappointed that you had MU going further than KU.

HTR of the Year: Jesse

"Tyshawn Taylor because he's rested, and he has a lot of Gatorade in him."

Jesse you should get a residual for that one.

Love these videos. Just wondering why Keeg party isn't involved. What's his pick this week?

Ouch, hurting from Matt Tait's elbow in a pick up game (you would had to seen the video Cram Session to get this joke). Love the video guys. That is my preference. I don't know---feel like I am watching a Mission Impossible movie when I open up the Cram Session.

Jesse---two point win by the Jayhawks. Wow, I hope it's more than two points. My stomach won't take close games, especially if it comes down to a last-second shot. Rock Chalk Jayhawk---good luck tonight, KU!
