Letter: Please explain

Mr. Masters and Mr. Kerr would rather hand over the reigns of power to two unelected billionaires just because they promise everyone the moon(?) So how would you reign the Kochs and their ilk in when they inevitably start abusing their power or if and when your self interest and their self interest no longer coincide. I hear the Tea Party righties throwing around terms like "tyrant" and "dictator" all the time but it's obvious that they have no real idea of what they mean. Just because Obama has enacted certain legislation that you don't agree with does not make him a dictator. If that were the criteria for dictatorship then every American president since the beginning would have been a tyrant. One of the most critical and often overlooked aspects that define a dictator is the inability of those not in power to remove him/her from office by any means. We have that means here and it's called an election. Who would you elect to replace the Koch boys when they inevitably start abusing the power that you would award them?

Better every day: After relaxing break, KU freshman Embiid all about improvement

It's cool to hear that he's such a hard worker and an avid student of the game. It would be easy for someone with so much natural talent to sit back and rely on talent alone to get by but he sounds hungry and he plays hungry. Even the shots that he missed against Toledo were impressive - some of the moves that he made just to get those shots were simply amazing.

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

I love those strong 2nd half finishes. What a nutty 1st half, but I never lose faith with this team. They find ways to win. I shouldn't say anything about Jeff's hair since he's playing so well, but it is time for another haircut, lol. On to Michigan. I don't know much about them this year but as long as they're not a small, fast team I won't panic. It seems like it's always the small, quick teams that give us trouble in the tourney but when we're playing a powerhouse team it seems to bring out our best.

'Bragging rights': KU takes Big 12 tourney title with 70-54 win over Kansas State

That truly was a team win, in fact it's really cool that on a night where B-Mac didn't play his best the rest of the team rallied and won decisively. Kudos to Traylor and Tharpe for some excellent minutes, to Travis for his stifling defense and some key fastbreaks, to Kevin not only for just getting out there after getting injured yesterday but for playing to his usual high standards and energy, and to Jeff for an outstanding game and tournament. And last, was Perry worth the wait or what? Not that it was really a wait - he's been improving noticeably and steadily all season but it looks as if he's really figured out that not only can he play at this level but that he can get out there and make a difference.

In 2008 I watched the NCAA Championship at my parents' house. They had invited another couple over, one of whom was from South Africa and she had never seen a basketball game. She picked one helluva game for her first ever although I wouldn't be surprised if she was afraid to ever watch another with us - I don't think she'd ever seen that much emotion unleashed over a game before. Also, in '88 I was going to school back east and had to miss the first half of Danny and the Miracles because I had a big project due. When I got back to my apartment at halftime all my roommates were waiting for me and they were all like "you're not going to believe this, but it's 50-50 at the half". I took my seat and got to watch one of the greatest 2nd half performances of all time. I eventually got to see the first half a few years later.

Kansas guard Ben McLemore signals three after hitting a shot over Kansas State during the second hal

Now THAT was some Jayhawk basketball. When they play well it's hard to pinpont one single player who stood out. Jeff, Kevin and Travis all played great. B-Mac obviously played tremendous. But in the end I'd have to give my vote to Nadir. He's really shown all year that he's up to the challenge of quarterbacking this team and by taking a big burden off EJ's back I'm hoping that EJ can really catch fire.

Three and OUch: Jayhawks' skid continues with road loss to Sooners

I too thought they played better today than in the previous two games. The previous two losses were so frustrating because those were ones they should have been able to salvage. The loss today is no great shame, except for missing so many free throws. The defense looked better except for allowing too many open 3-pointers which really were the dagger - seems like everytime we'd get close they'd come back with a three and shut the door.

One thing I'd like to see more of - a few games back B-Mac showed a move where he caught the ball outside the 3-point line with a defender on him. He shook the defender by faking to one side then scooted the other direction and sank an uncontested 3. He did it twice, I think, and made it look so easy both times I'd think the coaching staff would be telling him to keep doing it until someone could prove they could stop him.

Sealed with a kiss: Travis Releford's 'unbelievable' game lifts KU over K-State

Yeah, KY was a little off his game at times but he also did some great things at other times. What I like best about his play, besides his enthusiasm, is that he plays great without the ball - he's always in the right place when Jeff gets double-teamed or when someone drives and needs someone to dish off too. KY has also been getting a lot of steals out near mid-court like the one he had today. As for Jeff - they really need to create some new stats based on his play such as altered shots and blocks that go to himself or his teammates. Big dramatic blocks are always nice but what Jeff does when he blocks is far more valuble to the team because it so often leads to quick points at the other end. This was a great win today - it felt like we were really in control the whole time and every time K-State threw a punch KU responded.

I have serious issues with Jayhawk Pawn. Several years ago my house was burglarized and several instruments and amplifiers were taken including one of my favorite guitars. THE VERY NEXT DAY I went into Jayhawk Pawn and asked if any instruments matching the description of mine had come in (they said no) and I even gave them a flyer with descriptions and pics in the event that my stuff showed up there later. Of course I never heard back from them. About a year later someone from the local police called and informed me that they had discovered that my property WAS INDEED at Jayhawk Pawn THE VERY DAY I CAME IN, sitting in the back room, but after that the trail went cold. I AM FURIOUS WITH THESE LYING SLIMEBALLS, and I will do whatever I can legally to expose their rotten, crummy business practices. I would do the previous poster even one better and give JAYHAWK PAWN a negative rating if I could.

Jayhawks' pressure defense overwhelms Hornets

Traylor's name is a combination of T-Rob's initials, and Tyshawn's last name: T-R - AYLOR. Coincidence? We'll see...
