Kentucky lost like ten games in a row this year.

Kentucky has more talent and a better coach than we do. We need them to not play up to their potential to win.

Kentucky would win it all every year if they could consistently play up to their potential. That just tends to be a very hard thing to do.

Anyone who watched that game yesterday would have us ranked last. 

That game yesterday was a STD to the eyes.......they burned badly

What's bothering me about the coverage of that game, everyone keeps talking about how it was the worst game of the tournament.  However the Syracuse/Michigan State game was pretty much the very same damn game without the defensive effort. That game was two teams holding the ball for 25 seconds then either getting fouled or putting up a bad shot. The last 30 seconds of that game was one of the worst finishes to a game I've ever seen, yet the media doesn't care. I'm not one of those the media hates us guys, but the reason for us getting that criticism but not Syracuse is absolutely because of the brand.

Anyway, several media members have the same take as PIPE, if they only knew. :facepalm:

There is a big difference in narrative if the underdog wins the ugly game.

Not to mention we played well against Creighton. Not like we've crap showed up the entire tournament. We had a bad game and won. BFD

great offensive and poor defensive game = great game, well played by both teams

great defensive and poor offensive game = ugly game, both teams played like crap

You're right. The KSU/UMBC game was played at a much quicker pace, had a significantly higher eFG% and didn't feature 47 rough ridin' free throws. So like I said, the MSU/SU game featured them passing the ball for 25 seconds before they chucked up a shot or got fouled.


Thanks for the clarification.

ya, that offense last night was as close to LHC Bill Snyder’s football offense that a basketball offense can be.
it looked like oscar was playing not to lose and wanted to play as few possessions as possible

And yet there were three games that round with fewer possessions, no one said boo about Tennessee/Loyola and that had the pace of a game with a 45 second shot clock, like Chi said, the underdog won that game so it wasn't the most boring game played of all time.

I'm sure this is no surprise to anyone paying attention but KSU/UMBC was played at a quicker pace than UVA/UMBC.

Any "sports" writer who doesn't have Loyola Chicago 16 and Syracuse 15 is a fucktard.

it’s pretty obvious that you’re the only person who has paid attention to anything, ever

Are you kind of the "watch the world burn" type? Check out Kansas State.

Much like Heath Ledger's Joker in "The Dark Knight," you just want to watch everyone's bracket go up in flames. You're not a guy with a plan. You're more like a dog chasing a car -- you wouldn't know what to do with one if you caught it. Kansas State makes all the sense in this cold world, then. The Wildcats just sent Cinderella candidate UMBC home in one of the ugliest games of basketball in recent memory. A Kansas State run to San Antonio would mean more of that kind of basketball for a couple more weeks, torching every bracket and eyeball along the way.

My "Take"

If anyone but oscar was our coach they'd be talking about the grinders from KSU that won 2 games without their leading scorer.  But the media doesn't like/respect/care about oscar so we get this.  Which is fine, I just like winning.

They’re not talking highly about KSU because we’re not a blue blood but we’re not a Cinderella either. Just a boring old 9 seed from a good conference winning boring games.

When Frank made it to the FF with South Carolina, they could at least talk about how historic it was for that program, how it was in the gutter pre-Frank etc etc. We don’t have anything like that. We’re in the tournament fairly often, win a game occasionally, and have a decent number of Sweet 16s already under our belt.

Our D has been pretty amazing. Only the Cats and the 1-seeds have played a 16 and an 8/9 (well, except for Virginia, ha). In those first two rounds, here's how they compare in points allowed....
Xavier: 79
Virginia: 74
KU: 69.5
Villanova: 59.5
KSU Cats: 51

Obviously points per possession would be a better metric but I couldn’t easily find those stats offhand.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.
