I will just be glad when this crap is all over and my television programs are normal again. To televise something that is nonsense and garbage is down right idiotic.

It's Butler. And I hope Lew is still here improving facilities all over campus.

I must admit, this is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. Lets look at some time slots and see what is normally on CBS but was bumped due to bball:

Thursdays: Survivor, The Mentalist Fridays: Ghost Whisperer, Medium Saturdays: CSI Miami, Criminal Minds Sundays: Amazing Race, Undercover Boss

You're telling me Survivor and Amazing Race are not nonsense and garbage?

Anywho, Butler all the way!

One thing I would LOVE to see end NOW is the idea that seems to pervade in this area, that every time a KU team wins significantly, it somehow has to have a Miracle attached to it. "Danny and the Miracles", Mario's Miracle". Do you know how much we get laughed at by the rest of Division I because of this? "So what kind of miracle are you gonna pull out of your (expletive deleted) this year to win?" Or... "How come other teams can just win, but Kansas requires miracles to do so?"

This kind of of blathering goes on all over the net, in sports forums, chatrooms, now even the sportswriters are picking up on it more and more.

3 things:

1.) God doesn't trip NCAA players or do anything else to give such a sweet team a Miracle so they can win the title.

2.) Hard work becomes luck.

3.) Attitude is everything, good or bad. We had an ownership attitude, and we got everything that comes with that thinking.....

Just Drop the Miracles crap. We win because we are THE JAYHAWKS, not because the law of averages throws a flukey miracle to us so we can win without worrying about anything else once in awhile.

SHADOW--YOU WIN BECAUSE YOU ARE JAYHAWKS???????

NOT THIS YEAR, A MIRACLE WOULD HAVE HELPED. [SMILE]

I just want to see duke get knock out of the picture but I guess they will have it their way and probably go all the way. I am also happy that Roy's boys didn't get an chance to come to the dance.

I would say, as great as KU is year after year ( last 25 anyway), and with only 3 titiles in almost 60 years, it just about takes a miracle to win a championship. Go M&M Morris and the Miracles or maybe Mario's Little Miracle.

I'd love to play basketball! Could you let me borrow your lower spine for a day or two, none2? Mine went out on me at the ripe age of 14, when I had hardly any bodyfat and was the best sprinter in my middle-school. Three surgeries over 2 decades later, I'm afraid that trying to play hurts substantially, but don't let me get in the way of your continued generalizations.

"Baker of course. (I hope Turner Gil is rooting for them too, so we have God on our side.)"

I'm gonna tell Beobachter that you are stealing his Gill bashing schtick.

Let's not confuse generalizations with absolute statements, shall we?
