I would have rooted for Stanford but they got their dicks knocked off in their next game.  :frown:

Was this the worst collection of 1 and 2 seeds the tournament has ever seen or was this final 4 just a fluke?

After the year KU had and able to get a #2 seed, the teams at the top were very overrated

Not sure if this is off topic or not, but I'd never really realized just how disgusting ku's campus was until beems started using that pic as his sig-line...

Chop is just a gorgeous display of basketball play design.  There are so many options that even when you know it is coming, it is still almost impossible to prevent a shot.

But how can you say KU invented the dribble handoff into a shot?

But how can you say KU invented the dribble handoff into a shot?

Obviously you couldn't say that, but you might be able to say that we improved on it.  When the dribble handoff produces a good shot, then it just looks like a dribble handoff.  But, there are multiple options on the play designed to get a shooter a good look.  I mean, Self seems to imply that they made it up:

“We made it up,” Self told the Journal-World Monday, asked about the creation of the play.

“It was in 2006 or ’07. We were trying to figure out as many options as we could to score on a play to give us as many three-point options as possible. That’s what we came up with. I remember the first day we put it in. I’m like, ‘Well, gawd-dang, this works,’” Self added.

Asked about the play showing up in game plans all over the land, Self said: “I haven’t heard what anybody is calling it or anything like that. I would think a lot of people run some form of it, yes.”

Asked why it was named “Chop,” Self said: “You could say we did it for the Kansas City Chiefs (tomahawk chop).”

Seriously ... “We make our calls (signals) above our shoulder. We were running out of calls. It was the one thing left. We said, ‘Give the chop sign,’” Self said.

Watching KU fans live vicariously through the success of UCONN since they lost to stanford in the regular season is a real treat on this beautiful Tuesday morning.

Being butthurt and hating on KU all the time has to get exhausting at some point, but I guess that's just how taters roll.

Campus looks great.  It's that awful raw sewage smell as you roll into Lawrence that's hard to handle.

Can someone recap the ku "The NCAA Tourney is a joke" threads and social media proclamations.

I'll try and bullet point what we've had set forth over the last few years by the phog in regards to the NCAA tourney:

-Mid Majors should not be allowed into the tourney.

-The tourney should be double elimination.

-There should only be a 16 team tourney (double elimination).

-Moving to another conference will help ku play better in the NCAA tourney.  (this seems like an odd one to me, particularly considering that ku lost @Texas, @KSU, @OSU, @WVU, needed a last second shot to beat @TT, only beat OSU by 2 @ home, and got beat by ISU in KC.  That's 5 losses to Big 12 teams in 20 games, and two other narrow escapes.  How much tourney prep you want?  Pummeled during the regular season and on the bubble?  That would cause a Chernobyl style meltdown within ku T-Shirt nation.  Not to mention their non-conference schedule). 

What am I missing?
