Sounds like last years OU game was the last time we will ever play them in the regular season.

Well that sucks. Here I was thinking maybe Klieman would be able to end his career with more wins against them than Mike Gundy.

Are we having divisions next year?

OU are broke dicks so next year we'll have the same schedule but reversed. They haven't announced divisions for '24 going forth yet, but there won't be divisions.

And I don't want any either fwiw.

If they keep us to where we play OSU/ku/isu each year and rotate the rest I'm fine with that.

their video people did a fun schedule reveal too

the piece of pizza :lol:
I like the idea but it really drags

Meh, a little, it was adorable.

I went to the game last night.  Admittedly, first time in Allen Fieldhouse. 

Game Thoughts:
 - I don't know if I've ever seen so many missed dunks and layups in one game.
 - Defense did not play well.
 - KU had players step up that haven't rest of season.  They really wanted this one.
 - Officiating was not consistent.  Too many fouls.

Overall Allen Fieldhouse Experience:
 - Fans were great.  You could tell this game meant a lot to them.  Lots of booing and even started "little brother" chant.  Pretty amazing.
 - The place is a dump.  At some point you have to give history the middle finger and build a better venue.
 - HVAC was all kinds of mumped up.  It was in the mid-80's with no air movement.  Absolutely miserable.
 - Audio was not good.  I think their sound system is pretty new, but unfortunately difficult to hear and understand the PA announcer.
 - Intro video was overhyped.  A few of my KU coworkers have stated to me that the intro video sets the tone and is the best experience in the Arena.  Possibly the best intro video at any sporting venue.  Well friends, that is debunked because it was nothing special.  I was expecting lights to go out with other cool crap and none of that happened.  I actually think I missed the first part of it because it did not draw my attention away from people watching.

Enjoyed this synopsis. I know there has been a lot of gE/general katz hate of AFH but the more I see/read about it it comes increasingly clear it's objectively needs significant overhaul and is part it's prime.

Like I went to Cameron indoor a few years back, and it's a tiny, but super nice high school gym. It's crazy how much these storied places are like, actually fairly meh.

Fwiw as a licensed professional engineer who writes a lot of specs (specifications) I can tell you any engineer worth their salt does not allow the word SHOULD in their specs. The correct word is SHALL and if you're feeling especially froggy...MUST.

(I hope any other spec writers/editors read this blog post and go make their specs better if they aren't already)

This is correct, even "must" is not a good thing to do. As is insure/ensure/guarantee and other such no go words.

We could really get a hold of first place if we do work the next few games

Let's all take a moment to acknowledge that before the season if you told us that we'd be pissed at being ranked 7th we would have blown our rough ridin' minds.

Tang's culture man

I'm pretty sure we would beat any team ranked ahead of us on our home court. Not sure about a neutral court, but I'd like our chances. I think we would beat Alabama on their court.

None of those teams scare me

I don't know how I emotionally made it in 2014 and 2015. Imagine if the Chiefs had 3 more games this week.

I think because each baseball game in the playoffs is more like a drive of an overall football game it makes each individual baseball game less an emotional wreck. As long as you're not facing elimination in a game in baseball if you lose, it sucks but it's more like you let the other team score on that drive, so how are you then going to respond in the next one.

It's also why if you only have the one game (see 2014 wild card) it's rough ridin' high of highs and low of lows cause that's all you got.

AP has us at #7

you could do the river cutout with no painted line, just different colored wood in the not part of kansas corner.

This is a great idea


I like the full court state design but it's non compliant, the state design over mid court is great though.

I'd be perfectly pleased to have that design the _FAN has w/o any state outline, though I would prefer to swap the lavender/dark purple, I like the outer edge being dark and the lanes to be lavender.

It'd be very this team and season to win the next 3 and then lose to TT

In case anyone was curious about him not penalizing Alabama while punishing Iowa State and UT, even though Alabama had far and away the worst loss of the three.
Four teams ranked in the top five of Saturday morning's CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 played on Saturday. Three of them lost -- all on the road in what was the final year of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. Home teams went 8-2 in the event to underline just how difficult it can be to win on the road in either league.

One of the top-five teams that lost was Alabama.

The Crimson Tide got smacked at Oklahoma, 93-69, so you might be wondering why Alabama remains No. 2 in Sunday morning's updated Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. Fair question. The answer is that I simply do not believe anybody other than No. 1 Purdue has a better body of work than Alabama even after that 24-point loss to the Sooners. The Crimson Tide are still 18-3 overall, including 8-0 in the SEC, with a 6-3 record in Quadrant 1 and zero losses outside of the first quadrant. Literally every school in the country besides Purdue either has fewer Quadrant-1 wins than Alabama and/or more Quad 1 losses than Alabama and/or more losses outside of the first quadrant than Alabama.

Most have all three.
I respect this way of ranking.
I appreciate anyone principled in their approach and willing to own it when it looks kind of silly in application.

Yup agreed, I also suspect when the actual ranking to come out for us to not move at all.


I want octawood like _FAN has here in these

the full lavenders looked pretty neat.

Probably my favorite overall, like I get the dark purple bottoms have history but it looks so good.

I would be stunned if he has 22 assists in the next two games.

Just needs 14 now  :Wha:

Played 18 today and shot a 92. Not bad for not playing in about a year and a half

Damn, solid

4-1, now need TCU to pull this out in OT
