Kansas basketball's Remy Martin experience ends on an incredible high

Delusional Lee? That's quite a strong statement for a claim that cannot be proven. Unfortunately that seems to be how our society chooses to communicate.

If Remy had not played the game, someone else would have stepped up. Maybe a bigger win. Maybe a loss. I would not call it absolutely delusional to consider winning without Remy especially as it had happened before. More than once.

Fill in the blank: Calling anyone who disagrees with you as delusional while making an unprovable claim is _______.

Technical knockout: Top-seeded Kansas routs West Virginia, 87-63 in Big 12 quarterfinal matchup

I don't like seeing coaches get tossed when they are right. The refs have been not good all year and the WV player did get fouled. Although Huggins probably crossed the line in what he said/how he said it.

KU's Ochai Agbaji earns first-team All-American nod from The Sporting News

I don't get out much so I haven't heard how it works to be a ''Consensus All American" though I've heard that term used before. I've always assumed it's cover for someone basically saying "Everyone agrees with me" to try and lend heft to their opinion without there being any actual math behind the claim.

I'm not trying to be funny (it just accidentally happens often, at least in my head). Are you laying out Rodney Crain's Consensus All American team criteria or is there an organization named Consensus and you are explaining their criteria?

Will this work the same in 2022?

I wholeheartedly agree with congratulating Mr. Agbaji!

TCU bullies No. 6 Kansas, 74-64, dropping Jayhawks into 2nd place in Big 12 race

Lazy math plus lazier insults does not equal a good post.

Joe Yesufu, No. 6 Kansas 'played pretty tough' in gritty win at West Virginia

I can't explain it. I screamed at the tv asking how it wasn't called but I didn't get an answer back.Come to think of it, I never do. Probably a good thing.

Kansas' Dajuan Harris Jr. ready to embrace scoring responsibilities

I thought Mr. Harris was pretty important in the first half against Oklahoma, driving into the lane and scoring three baskets when the rest of of the team was struggling. To me he's what kept it close until the rest of the team woke up.

Kansas guard Remy Martin's 'unselfish' approach prioritizing wins over shots

Isn't the narrative Remy is looking for the sweet spot between the two? That would be the best case scenario in my mind. It's tricky to rock a dime that's right on time.

Kansas basketball adds home game with Nevada; Big 12 home opener vs. TCU postponed

Saying it is a fact is quite different than proving it a fact. So please, would you cite for me where you found these facts? You didn't even stress that you have studied these facts to lend credence to your political views. Nor have you proven why you find it necessary to trot out your latest short story fiction on a sports site.
