WSU alumni in Lawrence thrilled by Final Four appearance

I'll be rooting for the Shockers to go all the way and see no reason to believe they don"t have a good chance to do just that. They didn't have an easy road to the Final Four and they never lost their poise and determination. Should they win it all I only hope some of their more rambunctious fans behave like winners and not try to rub KU's nose in it. Some in the Wichita media have already shown signs of spending more time flaunting their good fortune in the face of KU fans than enjoying the fantastic success this team of fine young men have enjoyed this season. I hope I don't have to see billboards on the turnpike reminding the world that the Shockers had a better season than the Jayhawks. I still smart from the "Battle of New Orleans" played back in the 80's. Good Luck Shockers!

Notebook: Michigan's Mitch McGary on low blow: 'It was intentional'

When the foul happened I thought the MU guy was faking it. I couldn't believe any KU player would do that to an opposing player. But after watching the thousand reruns of it while the commentators all spewed their venom I have to admit it didn't look good. This is a loss that will never completely heal and all I can say now is that I'm really happy to see Johnson leave KU. I hope Coach Self lands someone(other than Tharpe) he can depend on to play smart basketball and a player we can be proud of at point guard. Great season Jayhawks. Rock Chalk.

KU’s Naadir Tharpe familiar with UM’s Mitch McGary

I remember that Purdue game and I remember that dunk. I also remember that after the dunk, as they were running back down the court Big O looked over at him and told him "nice move".

UNC coach Roy Williams: Loss stings, but not because of history with KU

When Roy was here I thought he was the best coach in the country. I was upset that he left but understood and didn't blame him. He has ALWAYS been very gracious with KU. I'm sure the day will come when Roy and the Tarheels knock us out of the tournament. I won't be happy about it but at least I can say we lost to a great team and a great coach. I now believe Coach Self to be the best there is. I don't know what I'd do if we were beaten out by the likes of K-State or, even worse, WSU! At least Roy has a proven record of respect for the Jayhawks andtheir coach, unlike those two coaches.

Opinion: Naadir Tharpe takes Bill Self on wild ride ... to the Sweet 16

Coach Self will have him developed into one of the best guards in the country by the time he leaves KU. But now he can drive me crazy with some of his idiotic laspes. Everytime he touches the ball you don't know if you're going to see the "good" Tharpe or the "bad" Tharpe. Thank goodness we are seeing a lot more of the good Tharpe these days.

Whew! Kansas survives big, red scare

We are very lucky WKU wasn't hitting their shots like the team that killed K-state yesterday. I hope this wasn't a bad sign of things to come. But after TCU and Baylor I can't ever feel really comfortable with this team. I think we will have to bring our A game to beat Roy a third time in the tournament. Tharpe has got to quit running down the court and throwing up wild threes with thirty seconds left on the shot clock. They almost never go in,

Notebook: Bill Self's 500th win 'was a good one'

I've always thought ISU was a pretty class act. I can understand their frustration at losing such a hotly contested game. With 15 seconds remaining in regulation I honestly thought they had won it, as I'm sure most of them did. I hope that the nasty incident from the students involved only a few individuals. There was terrible officiating last night that hurt both sides. For every bad call we got I could see one that probably went against ISU. But one thing I did not appreciate was the two announcers harping over and over again on the fouls for Withey and the late call towards the end of the game. It was more than clear they were rooting for ISU. But to do it so blatently on national television showed a total lack of class in my opinion.

Opinion: Elijah Johnson responds to ‘man-up’ talk

I was one who blasted Johnson during KU's losing streak. But I have to say the words I'm eating now taste delicious. He more than made up for any poor games he's had earlier in the season. He also proved that we of the Jayhawk Nation are blessed to enjoy such a talented coach and players and to be treated to so many heartstopping memories as we have every year. I understood the last dunk by Johnson and was impressed by his apology to ISU's coach and players. He's a class act. Now, if it had occured on the home court of Fizzou I don't know if I'd feel the apology was deserved.

Frozen by disease, Ali still Greatest

In my opinion Ali is not only the greatest fighter ever. He is the greatest athlete ever. What he did far transended sports and made him a great man. His triumphs in and out of the ring inspired a generation. He is still the most recognized person on the face of the earth. Happy Birthday Champ!

Brownback administration supports bill that critics say could invalidate Lawrence anti-discrimination ordinance

It never ceases to amaze me at the depths to which these lunatic, Bible thumping republicans will stoop to force their narrow minded and bigoted agenda down our throats. What's even more amazing is how many Kansans blindly swallow the GOP's venomous cool aid, no matter what the obvious ramifications to their own well being.
