It's fun when all the KU haters come on to talk trash. The Hawks have beaten all of you like a drum for years, and you still try to ridicule them. What has your team(s) done in recent years...or ever for that matter. We are about to win our 7th straight league title (our 53rd overall) and hope to win our 6th National title. What have you got............

I could care less about the rankings right now. What irritates me is the people that are so quick to ridicule. Only one team can win it all and apparently things are a complete and utter failure if KU is not that team.

Last year's team went 33-3. Most schools would kill for that record. I would call that pretty darn successful. Not to mention 3 victories over a main rival and the 6th conference championship in a row.

I'm glad they've finally ranked us higher than k-state. I predict our game with them at Allen Field house will be a blow out. I still think we're the most talented team in the country.

The Mangino scheduling is paying-off with an overstated early season ranking. Come Spring, it would be better to have played some tough early games and grown tougher and more pressure-tested.

Oh, well ... at least we know what's coming again ... glossy record, high seed, early exit at the hands of a mid-major.

The hawks are rolling.

Simply add Selby and improve our post defense and we're a serious contender.
