Maybe, although I think this year is different for a few reasons.

I'm really scared to be excited for this Kansas team because their post presence is still just Lucas and Traylor (and Bragg, but watch Self get conservative in the tourney and not play the freshman). But the three-point shooting adds so much more diversity to our offense, which generally hasn't been able to keep up with hot-starting midmajors and gets flustered by zones, that I think we have a shot to actually make some progress. And it's not like there's some bona fide favorite in the field that clearly outclasses us. There's so much odd parity in the league this year.

^^^^really? I'll stop saying that then.

I guess I shouldn't talk because the atrocious Kansas governor just cut 17 million in higher education to make up for the 57 million tax deficit he created when he cut taxes in order to tickle the Koch brothers' balls. Between that and kids carrying guns to campus next year it isn't like my alma mater is the flagship program for state politics and financial responsibility. Kind of like how backwoods western Kansas politicians said that KU had to go out of state to acquire bonding for student housing so they did and then they blocked it anyway when KU acquired the funding. Their reasoning is unreal.

ďKU is flying the Starship Enterprise through our statues trying to avoid a transparent process thatís accountable to taxpayers and students both," Claeys says. "Whether you want to call it lease payments or whatever, itís on state property, itís going to be ultimately the state responsible," Rhoades says. "However they want to try to frame it, it still comes back to the taxpayer."

uh what

Kansas is a lot like the Starship Enterprise in that it flies through a bunch of space with zero intelligent life. Going to be really fun to sell kids from Chicago and Baltimore and New Jersey on coming to a campus with open-carry in a state with a recent mass-shooting.

I just partied on Franklin Street with a mosh pit of UNC fans. I had a chance to go up to Roy Williams and tell him, as a Kansas fan, I was happy for him, but I decided not to be that awkward. Tonight owned in every single way.

I like coach K's choice because it's obvious he tried to think of the hippest artist he knew of

I think the article picked one for him because he's the only one who didn't respond back (of course, what a loving rear end in a top hat), and he mentioned liking Beyonce once.

Oh Lord. Which ones?

The thing about Kim Anderson is he has to recruit well and to recruit well he has to hire guys who can recruit but he hasn't recruited the guys who can recruit so how can anybody believe that he'll ever fix this?

Meanwhile guys like Brad Underwood are going to be out there but Missouri is just going to go with Kim. I feel for you, Missouri fans and those aren't crocodile tears. The administration has made bad decisions at every step along the way basically since Norm Stewart retired*. There is a lack of power teams at the top of the SEC other than UK that MU should be competing with every year. If Texas A&M can manage to win the SEC, Missouri should be right there. Kim Anderson is never going to get you there, so what is anybody waiting for? I'm a hated rival and even I feel kind of sick about it, because there's no solution in sight. That's frustrating and reminds me of the Royals during the dark years.

*I include the Quin Snyder hire because after Norm retired April 1 by April 5 MU had interviewed John Calipari, Quin Snyder, Bill Self, and Kim Anderson.

Out of those four look who they hired and look who they passed on.

Mike Anderson wasn't the worst hire under them, but it hasn't been smooth sailing since, no.

Apparently some poo poo went down at Western Kentucky. Three players suspended and their coach resigned. Guess someone had their way with Big Red or something.

Whoa, what the gently caress. That coach used to be at a Christian school, which I realize doesn't necessarily mean anything, but it still seems surprising to me.

You went to the elite 8 be happy

I feel a welling up of anger, but I think it's at douchey Villanova teams past, because I can't really think of anyone that hateable on Villanova. Arciadiacono? But that's too cool of a name to hate.

If Kansas doesn't lose in Round of 32, they lose in the Elite Eight. Is what it is.

It's going to be Syracuse that wins, though. Alabama, Denver... a bad trend has developed, leaving a chill in my soul.

It would be cool if Syracuse won it all only for the excitement of future tournaments knowing that any team actually COULD win it all, no matter how lovely they were all season. Gives us all hope

Any team could win it all, as long as they have a history of tournament bullshit. I think everyone already knows that about this dumb sport.
