So 13 people actually think that we'll be the first team ever to lose to a 16 seed. Classy. Go back to your Meth lab...

Mel Briscoe 5 years, 4 months ago

i know, right? meth lab or manhattanites. same thing really.

Jeremiah Jefferson 5 years, 4 months ago

I dont think meth or manhattan has anything to do with it. KU is well known for folding in the first 2-3 rounds. Are they good? Sure they are. They have several titles to prove that. But honestly, they should probably have 3-5 more as much as they have gone in to the tournament as a #1 seed. They are known for choking when it matters most.. Im just sayin..

Mandie Eutsler 5 years, 4 months ago

Hey catfish, I'm not sure I'd call it choking since every other no. 1 seed loses sometime too. The big dance is the toughest tournament in sports, and lots of teams are known for losing. Each year there is only 1 team out of several hundred that wins it all. I'm not sure you can say that any team "chokes".

true, lack of focus by this team over extended periods does give me cause for concern for an early exit like other years, but the talent gap between them and the lower seeds seems more extreme this year... get out of the top 10 and its hard to find a team capable of making a run.. and KU could have a team like New mexico as the #2 seed in their region? anything short of the final four would be a disappointment for those reasons, but im yet to see anything to make me believe KU is going to play well enough for 40 minutes to beat a final four caliber team...but then again, there arent that many teams that have looked great this season (duke as a #1 seed? please).. i sure hope im wrong...maybe they have just been bored waiting for the real tournament to start....

Jayhawks cannot afford a slow start against teams of equal capability. If a team shuts down the KU inside game such that OSU did things could get difficult.

It's not that KU cannot win.........

Glad 18, to this point in time, Misery and KSU fans took the time to respond. Duh !!

KU I think is the by far the best team in the land. Even so, 10-15 teams can beat them on a neutral court, why you got to love the tournament. The three point shot is the great equalizer.

Don Whiteley 5 years, 4 months ago

Gees, who knows. On any given day, they could make mincemeat out of any team in the tournament. And on any given day they could lose to Slippery Rock. The team can't wait to catch fire until there's only five minutes left in the game, and they have to get up for the little guys.

labmonkey 5 years, 4 months ago

I think they will lose in the Sweet 16. (If I acknowledge a reverse jinx attempt, does it nullify the reverse jinx?)

Uhlrick_Hetfield_III 5 years, 4 months ago

It's hard to believe in this bunch of arrogant underachievers. If they keep up this attitude that they only have to play 4 minutes a game they're going to lose very early on. Self wanted the team to get a label and now it's found one arrogant underachievers. Perhaps lazy, arrogant, underachievers.

jonas_opines 5 years, 4 months ago

That's what UlrHets been saying after every close game all year. Almost as if he's not really a KU fan at all. . . .

riverdrifter 5 years, 4 months ago

Ask UlrHets about Lew -and jump back! I'm thinking mebbe UH got his seats snatched away...

I don't think this team will lose in the tournament. They've been waiting for it since early February.

KU is an ugly 13-16-1 against the spread, meaning they are not blowing teams out they are supposed to.

Graczyk 5 years, 4 months ago

That's why you play the games, jcstepmom28.

Bladerunner 5 years, 4 months ago

Its a tough tourney and KU has a habit of letting the opponents stay in the game way to long for being a number 1 team most of the season. Good luck but I'm doubting they will make it past the sweet 16.

Bladerunner 5 years, 4 months ago

Perhaps another fight with the football team will help bring them together as a team and help them focus on their objective.

Truami 5 years, 4 months ago

If KU only has one enemy (themselves) then I say.... beware of pride.
