Don't let them go to The Cave in The Oread.

Or Brother's, Wayne and Larry's, etc. Put 'em on lockdown except for practice and games.

Tell them what terrible people they are, and have them exchange jobs with the cheerleaders for a game. Shaming them is the only possible path to the national championship.

From Bleacher Report = 10 deepest teams in college basketball

Meanwhile Jayhawks under Self seem to come out strong in second half consistently. A few times that has not happened. It did happen playing TCU point wise just not quite enough.

Committing suicide over basketball is out of the question........

Just don't panic. The pieces are all there. The team walked into Ohio State's house and handed them a loss when they were undoubtedly looking for revenge.

OSU was soft play, TCU was just an anomaly, I think. The team hasn't handled losing very well in their follow-ups, coming out tight and without confidence. Once they snap out of it, they should do just fine.

The winner this year (like a lot of years) isn't going to necessarily be the most talented team, but just the one that plays the best as a team in the right segment of time.

If you don't like it, then please put your crank away.

They need to relax a bit - contrary to what everyone else has been saying... Maybe get together for a big dinner and just chill out. THEN get it together and rock college basketball as usual. :) 1,2,3, go - gameday tomorrow.

looks like a math problem, if KU were to score more points than the other team they should win most games.

Score more points is the answer.

I have a dog that will chase them up the stadium stairs and back down several times. And only when my dog is tired do they get to stop. I'd say good luck to that.

Here is an idea; make Billy E jr.'s pay dependent on wins. I mean his whole pay, not just bonus. Also, do REAL drug testing and stop treating non-students (I mean players) as 'real' students.
