I doubt it. Ed Nealy would, or maybe Victor Mitchell. Jeff Dishman?

If Mitch Richmond had gone to KU, he would have been their best player since Wilt.

It will hurt my eyes but what the heck...Big game and tipping one or two back to the birthday boy.

I knew those two words would wake things up! Still, when they scheduled OSU & A&M, one of two little words needed to go in there: "unless" or "except".

Insert Lew hatred here.

Two Top 5 teams from the Big 12 and much of the country won't get to see it. Wow, just wow. Don't you get the feeling that if Lew Perkins was the conference commish that this game would've somehow gone national? There are movers, shakers & deal makers and then there is Dan Beebe & his staff, asleep at the wheel in Dallas.

Mel,

Last year during the tourney, they would not stream the games through the 1320 web site.

^^^^^^ Hopefully your internet provider carries it. Around here, Sunflower doesn't, but AT&T U-Verse does have access to ESPN 360.

Mel Briscoe 4 years, 1 month ago

okay, so what about internet radio? you can access alot of "regular" radio stations via the internet now. all your fargo friend has to do is find out what kansas stations it will be on and he/she can possibly listen to that station online.

Unfortunately, ESPN360 is not available in all areas. The local cable provider has to have an agreement with ESPN to allow people with IP addresses in those areas to access it. Luckily, I can, but I know a KU fan in Fargo who won't even get to see it on 360 due to the restriction.

Also, with it being the ESPN2 game, it wouldn't be Mussberger & Knight. It's probably Franklin (who is about the worst play-by-play guy in the game) and someone.

It's also on the Jayhawk network, if you are so blessed to receive it on channels 15 or 207, courtesy Sunflower.

"Poor choice of words on my part. I realize they can't just pick up games, but I guess at the beginning of the season, when they were deciding which Big 12 game to show on ESPN2 tonight, that they decided on Oklahoma State @ A&M over KSU @ KU."

Jeebus. That is the ESPN game tonight? Granted, KSU wasn't expected to be Top 10, but a rivalry game would have been better than mid-tier Big 12 South crap.

It would be interesting if ESPN could work a flex schedule, but it would probably be too difficult.

He just keeps telling me it's not to get so upset.

The biggest game since '88. KU wins because Self will have them fully ready. See at KSU, at Texas, Misery. This team loses focus and snoozes -except for 'big' games.

^^^ My garden is 10 dry, sunny days from radishes, taters, peas & spinach going in. I'm jealous of those in baja Douglas county.

spacehog 4 years, 1 month ago

My best friend still has one of those bananas with Donnie Von written on it in marker. He grabbed it off the court at the game. Real classy, those goat ropers. I thought Donnie was beautiful. Still my all time fave. Nearly died when he was on the team due to complications of pneumonia. Still has huge scars on his back from the surgery. I still have a ball that the whole '77-'78 team signed. Donnie wrote "Good luck forma Big 8 champ" cuz he knew he was my fave.

the wildcats have no 6th person whereas our bench is probably the deepest in the nation. that, and it being played in allen fieldhouse outweigh mr. walrus' points.

oops, rephrased for re:

honeychild says the wildcats have no 6th person and honeychild thinks that homefield will truly be to the jayhawks' advantage.

@ Bruce

KU's only weakness (if you could even call it a weakness), is their 3-point defense. They dominate the conference in most defensive statistics, except they're in the middle of the pack in 3-point FG percentage allowed.

This is where the game will be won or lost, IMO.

0

autie 4 years, 1 month ago

You were at that game too, spacehog? That was so radical when the alfalfa sprout boys started in with the bananas....Donnie von Moore? He was so scary looking. That reminds me, I've had too many birthdays. I'll skip this year, again. But, what the hey, birthdays aren't cracked up to be all the great after 40. Or so....just another day, huh?

0

Ricky_Vaughn 4 years, 1 month ago

KSU had it in their hands last time...they just let it slip through their fingers. I imagine winning in the phog will be a tougher task, but it has happened before...

I'm just excited that both teams are having a great season. I think it's pretty cool that KU, KSU, and MU could finish 1-2-3 in the conference. When's the last time that happened?

Even if KU fans hate KSU and MU, they've got to be happy they're doing well. Many times KU gets accused of dominating a weak conference (a la Memphis?), especially the North. The fact that KSU and MU only brings legitimacy to the North and the Big XII in general.

In other words, KU looks better nationally when these teams play at a high level as well.

BruceWayne 4 years, 1 month ago

a few thoughts Bruce has about the game... Bruce thinks the teams are pretty equal as far as the way they are playing right now. Bruce thinks Senior night will effect the game.Bruce also thinks Keegan makes a good point that this will be Cole's last home game. Martin will get a technical. The crowd will deliver a huge punch in the mouth from the opening tip. The key to a KU victory will be not letting KSU shoot the three. Even playing TERRIBLE against OSU, had KU shut down the 3, they would have won. Bruce has heard that Frank promised his team Taco Bell if they win. Bruce says rock chalk!

spacehog 4 years, 1 month ago

Probably. Darnell Valentine and Rolando Blackmon will probably have the high scores. Those hicks better not throw bananas at my man, Donnie Von Moore again. He's my favorite player.

"I keep hearing everyone picking KSU to win. "

I haven't been really hearing that, but I don't listen to a lot of sports radio. What I do know is that there is a reason Vegas exists.

KU 10.5 KSU

That's a pretty steep spread. I'd be more than comfortable with a KU to win bet. I wouldn't mess with worrying about covering.

2002 4 years, 1 month ago

Are you kidding with this question. First thing, 1988 was a pretty interesting year. But there are more. Besides, every game with KSU is the biggest.

0

Shane Garrett 4 years, 1 month ago

Three reasons why KUS can win tonights game.

1 Because anything is possible.

2. KSU has great outside shooting.

3 KSU has a good rebounding team.

Hey Spacehog, my wife actually told me last night we are getting a mid 4 figure return this year. If you are in jail or in trouble, let me know. I was shocked, she usually signs my name on the return and I never hear about it until she buys something new.

Ronaldo and his supplemental persona immediately recognized that Mr. Coleman was a pretentious perv ogling the attractive young (blonde) Starbucks barista at Dillons. Mr. Coleman thought "she is a tall cup of coffee" but thankfully her carefree attitude about the earthquakes in Cheelay saved her from his lecherousness.

No, not the biggest.

We know he recovered OK from his birthday last week, and I do believe I saw a couple of post late yesterday from him. The ether theory may be valid. Now, that makes me wonder about tomorrow. If anybody is noticeably absent, does that indicate an over indulgence in something...I don't know, bourbon, beer, wine, peyote. Birthdays can be dangerous. We could call that the spacehog rule.

and serious???!!!! that damn game is not on espn? cue autie stomping in circles and cussing in his office.....those bastards.

BABBOY 4 years, 1 month ago

Good call TOB.

Pre-Roy Williams there were lots of good games. But, this is clearly the biggest since then. Someone was telling me that pre-1960 they met in the final four but I have not confirmed but that might have been the Tex Winter and Phog Allen which might have been pretty cool. I do not have time to google it and need to get to court as opposed to playing on here.

Should be a good one.....

0

ohjayhawk 4 years, 1 month ago

I agree with Sagecasey. The Elite 8 matchup was the biggest.

The unfortunate part about tonight's matchup, even though it's probably the second biggest KU-K-State basketball game ever, is that I am relegated to watching it on the computer screen on ESPN360.com. How ESPN didn't pick this game up is beyond me. A friend of mine (another KU grad) lives in an area that doesn't have access to ESPN360.com and will have to get through the game through the updates I give him.
