“Yes. Our defense is one of the best in the league. Better than Nebraska.”

“No. I don’t think they probably will, but it’s impossible for Nebraska to win every time.”

“I sure hope so. I think they have a chance, and I hope they pull it off.”

“I think so, because they are doing better than they have done in the past.”

Linux-chick - wonderful pictures! Thank you so much for sharing. And you are a cutie!

And mossyoak, we are GLAD you are not a Jayhawk fan, so everyone is now happy!

Some teams dream of success (KU), while other teams live to crush those dreams.

That'd be Nebraskie....

After KSU beat them in Manhattan, there were fans standing at one of the intersections where the NU bus turned; they were holding a sign that said, "Losers turn here!"

Kind of made me chuckle.

Yes, I think we can pull this one off.

I saw ticket-sellers asking $255.00 per ticket for this game. I can't imagine anyone being that desperate.

Wow 1968! Who can ever forget Bobby Douglas handing off to mack truck like John Riggins and the supreme John Zook?

We have a shot at...but you never know about streaks. They're like their own entities.

Linda Aikins 10 years, 9 months ago

E_M - hilarious on the anagram. I've been slacking off lately. It's good to know you've got my back.

Mr_daniels, do you think Bobby Douglas forget that there were others on his team? He just talked about himself with a brief mention about the defense. I think it took the whole team!

Even if KU wins it won't be as impressive as if they had done it when Nebraska was actually good. And if some one wants to pay $250 for tickets tell them they can come watch in on a big screen at my house for 1/2 price....actually how about only $100

sunflower_sue 10 years, 9 months ago

Yes! This will be the year. Everyone say collectively: "I think we can, I think we can..."

Purell 10 years, 9 months ago

I do hope we have a clean game.

(sorry...couldn't resist)

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago

what, no OMB...must be out rustling cattle [see yesterday's].

will KU beat NU... one KU student saw an NU player and asked "what's the "n" stand for in "nu?""
the Nebraska player quickly answered: "knowledge!"

KU wins, and the Red Sea parts once again? roundabouts suddenly vaporize? yeeeeehaaa!

might rain...rain could help KU? Divine intervention. good day all.

Don't know anything about the game but, bearded gnome - you could not make the Mex too hot for me. The only food I ever found too hot was one meal of Indonesian. Whoa, that's hot.!! The tears flowed like wine. OMB - give us the whole story with this almost arrest business, what did you do, you naughty boy? Surely not redistributing those of the bovine nature?

The only way those losers will win is if Nebraska forgets to show up for the game.

Sunflower Sue, Instead of "I think we can, I think we can", how about "Dream On, Dream On".

Mossy, in the words of the great Debrah Harry..."Dreamin' is free!" :)

40-15, KU lead....I think this one is over.

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago

AP: Reports today of a massive disturbance in the Red Sea, disrupting shipping and stunning observers. there is also word of the mysterious disappearance of all traffic roundabouts in Lawrence Kansas, cause unknown.
Mystics claim these two events are timed to coincide with the conclusion of the Kansas University-Nebraska football game.
Investigation is proceeding.

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago


also, before the game, some idiots were grilling in the parking garage...anybody know if these are Nebraskee fans?

Red is dead.

Does anyone know if the students stormed the field/took goal posts?

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago

yes, and yes.

KUlaw, I'll have a chocolate tort.

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago

they also chimed the bells.

goal posts doing their usual trips to destinations after a win: potter's lake and the Hawk.

mossyoak64 10 years, 9 months ago

Even_money, It was obviously a case of Nebraska throwing a bone out there for that pathetic team. I mean really, how else could they have won?

The Nebraska Governor has declared a state of emergency. He has set up a counseling and consoling hotline number for Nebraska fans. It is: 1-800-WE-SUCK!

This was the most amazing game I've ever been to. So great. Here are some pics if anyone is interested and missed the game. The crowd was crazy.

to elaborate...hunks of the goal posts also went to the Chi Omega fountain (the west oread mountain fountain), and to Mass street.

and much rejoicing was heard throughout the land for the Kansasland warriors had defeated the evil red warriors. Bells tolled, and the sound of rejoicing was heard for miles around.

linux_chick 10 years, 8 months ago

No problem! It was too awesome to not share. If anyone else has some pics, they should post here, too!

bearded_gnome 10 years, 9 months ago

MS_Canada, you come to Lawrence, I will take you to Tortas. you'll like it.

no OMB all day--maybe we need to put together bail for him?

Hannibal, nice to see you back; you were gone for a few days so i thought you were on a gourmet tour/dine around...

yes, the barbarians do party.

Chris Bohling 10 years, 9 months ago

To add to the fun, LHS wins the state gymnastics title. That's 100 state titles for Lawrence High.
