Just hoping they don't win so we can watch how many excuses the worst fans in college sports, possibly any sports, can come up with besides the actual play of the team because we all know they are Gods incapable of errors. Then we can be done with the fans for another year!

Abslutely proved my point about KU fans. There is a difference between having pride in your team and determing that because someone isn't a KU fan they have their "feet stuck in the mud of life and blame others."

I always heard if you don't bring your balls you might as well stay home.

I hears Danny may be learnin' the Tulsa Two Step and be kickin' up clouds of red dust. Good for him. Tulsa could become a contender.

Yes autie, there are others. But I was the first to be picked last on the playground . . .

I have a small brass Jayhawk I rub during the games.

My ritual before a KU tourney game is to play, "Midnight Blue" by Lou Gramm.

My pregame ritual is to scowl (quietly) then "enjoy" the game. Mrs Roe was "Queen of Courts" in '69 at her alma mater and is the sports enthusiast in our abode. Yesterday we got the 2 year old grandaughter her first Final Four t-shirt. For a guy that always got picked last I think I did all right.

Jeez, I know what you mean Rara. I've been wearin' this porno mustache since '71 and threaten to shave it off weekly (weakly?). Only thing is, the whole fam damnly swear they'll dis-own me if I do. I must be one ugly dog without a little facial hair to distract from it. Hell, I could always wear a hoodie . . . I guess . . .

So that's what's up with the nail biter victories. You guys & your facial hair equals too many close shaves! Just before tipoff of every game at The Dance, I remind the Gods of Roundball that Jo Jo was in bounds by at least a foot & that they can never do enough to right the injustice. Glory Road should've led to Naismith Drive.

Yes, if the team wins, there will be a ground swell, of unruly crowds, drunkenness, litter and bores.

I try to avoid making proclamations about what should or should not happen after we win the championship game before we even win the semi-final game. Especially when the NBA D-League Wildcats are in the mix.
