Nick, what was the guy saying? Was he p/o about the dunk?

Looks like a tough guy who was high on pork rinds.

Low class mentality shown by Johnson's game ending dunk.. just another Ku nongrad showing off

Yeah, and right after the game Elijah apologized . He explained that he was caught up in the moment and should have showed more sportsmanship and just dribbled it out. His words : "I saw an open basket and just drove it because I had been doing it all night." I know you wouldn't understand him getting caught up in the moment considering you probably haven't played a meaningful minute of sports in your life.

Comparing this ignorant classless fan to Elijah LEGALLY dunking the ball is just idiotic.

Elijah has already earned enough credits to graduate, so nice try sourpuss.

I also love that you created an account on a KU sports website just to whine about getting beat.

Nongrad? - care to explain yourself troll? If you mean he hasn't graduated neither have 99% of players in D1 basketball - graduation is in May

And the ESPN announcers spent the entire broadcast boasting about the good fans in Ames and Hilton, at one point describing them as among the nicest in all of college sports? The boos and this character would seem to contradict all of that positive hype that Ames and ISU got during the televised game. The end of game dunk was very uncharacteristic of a Bill Self team but with the season he has had, who could blame Elijah for doing what he did--and he was gracious in apologizing. Fortunately, there are sane and balanced folks in Iowa. Bryce Miller has a very balanced story in today's Des Moines Register online.

I’m a KU fan from Tulsa. The picture of the Iowa State fan accosting Bill Self is almost exactly what happened to me at the Liberty Bowl while Iowa State was playing my alma mater, the University of Tulsa, last bowl season. An Iowa State fan actually shoved me while his wife was looking on after TU beat ISU in the Liberty bowl. He was a large man in his late 40s (me a smaller guy early 50s). The fan was really itching for me to fight back. The looser also had his about 20 year son with him. Fat chance I had and could not find security anywhere close. ISU fans are losers.

Not all of us are. Those kind of drunk idiots make us look bad.

hahahhahahahhahahha - What a piece of work. I wonder if the kid crying was his grandson?

The kid crying was the coach's son. Really classy to make fun of a child crying.

Well, I'll be (oops, can't say that word on here).

When did playing from the tip to the buzzer become such a crime? If a player wants to dribble out the clock, that's his prerogative. I don't think a player deserves to be skewered for playing until the end.
