Just joking around. Of course I understand KU caught a break yesterday.

I hate Ohio state with a passion. No love loss there. I am a Michigan fan for football, so that explains that. My basketball team, (Syracuse) has to deal with defeat against my most hated football rivalry is just plain "cruel". For lack of a better word..And from what I've said about Ohio State being over-rated. This is just the worst twist of fate..If you have watched the Cuse', (should change it to ex-cuse) all year long, you know they played awful. However, as a Syracuse fan I am not shocked. I have come to expect this from this over-rated program. Overated coach and over-rated system. They always disappear when you need them to come through the most. Biggest choke artists in college basketball. Their coach is a complete hack. The program won't get better until he's gone. I blame him. He doesn't get his guys ready. Look at the Rick Patino's of the world. Tom Izzo's, Billy Donovan, Coach K, etc. They have so many more national titles and have gone further in the tournament much more than Suckycuse. Suckycuse only four final fours????Unacceptable if you want to be an "elite" program. Just one national title in 36 years. You tell me what that says for their coach???

I'm so sick of the same ending...

Rant over.
I used to get that upset over Syracuse losses. Now, I just hope for recruits solid enough to continue the torture for another few years.

So I'm hearing the K-State coach might be headed for South Carolina.

4- Duke: 1944 Wins, 827 Losses, Winning Percentage= .702

Or let a non KU, non UNC fan on here look at these stats and make the call.
I see my beloved Cats on top exactly where they are supposed to be!

Oh I am so ready. I hate Benedict Arnold and hope we beat them in a big way. This town will go crazy! We went to the airport when they flew in after Sundays game and there were over 500 people there. Davis is my all time favorite Cat. Talent galore but still very humble.

When KU got back to Lawrence at 1 AM Monday morning there were thousands of people in Allen Fieldhouse.



I hope we get past Ohio St to get another shot at Kentucky(who I think will roll over Louisville)...I don't think KY can be beaten right now...that team is a monster.

I fully expect UK to take the title. They are far more talented than any of the other teams in the FF or at all. Of course, they can be beat. Bill Self has used the early season UK loss as ammo for practice all season so they might be able to give them a game if everyone steps up.

I'd be leery of Louisville. If they come to play, their defense is stifling and they can nail threes. I had them going to the championship game (along with OSU) in my bracket.

They are a little flakey as a team though, hence their conference record. They might not show up at all.

Yeah, but I think UK is going to get all they can handle. Louisville has nothing to lose, while UK is never going to live it down if they lose to their instate rival with arguably one of the best rosters they ever had.
