SKC on track for all 102 points

Will Sporting KC win 34 games and 102 points? Probably not, but that doesn't mean expectations should be lowered at all.

I hinted in Marty's very fine FanPost that I might try to compile some data showing how KU's NCAA tournament losses stack up to the other teams that lead the nation in NCAA tournament wins since...

Dave Telep with the report. Haven't seen it anywhere else yet, though it's hardly a shock if true.

This is classic. I especially liked Frank Martin as Carlo Rizzi, Coach K as Hyman Roth, and especially Calipari as Fredo.

KU vs. Texas: Big 12 Championship game. This video appears to have (nearly) every field goal KU scored against Texas. Some absolutely textbook offense on display here. Very enjoyable video.

RIP Ed Manning

12

Ed Manning, former KU assistant coach (1984-88) and father of current KU assistant coach Danny Manning, has died. Obviously a sad day for Danny and the KU basketball family. I wonder what effect, if any, it will have on the team tomorrow. Clearly, condolences go out to the Manning family.

Selby to Releford off the floor lob dunk from KU/CU this weekend. We didn't get to see the last 3 minutes of the game on ESPN, so we missed this gem. Enjoy.

Here's the video from the National Anthem at last night's KU/Mizzou game, Feb. 7, 2011. Enjoy!

Cause for Concern? KU's Free Throw Percentage in Close Games

A frequent concern KU fans have mentioned with regard to this KU team is their Free Throw percentage.  Some have tried to downplay the concern, citing the fact that our primary ball handlers...

Looks like some good news regarding NCAA clearing KU to do certain things to help take care of T-Rob's sister. Lots to work out still, of course, but it looks like things are headed in the right direction.

When Will KU Lose Its First Game? New Poll

Since 81 out of 226 (36%) of voters were dead wrong on KU losing to Baylor, I thought it might be a good idea to put in another poll.  I suspect many will select our next game against Texas as the...

Andy Katz on the demise of the Big 12/Pac 10 Hardwood Series

8

Maybe I've been out of the loop, but I didn't realize this is the last year for the Big 12/Pac 10 deal. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but seems like the other 4 BCS conferences already have inter-conference challenges, so it's unlikely we'll get one any time soon. Kinda sucks, because I liked the idea, even if it wasn't as well-done as the Big-10/ACC challenge ESPN puts on every year.

Kanter ruled permanently ineligible

8

No schadenfreude here or anything. It's not an unexpected result, but obviously a big negative for UK. Hopefully, the NCAA has gotten all the bad news out of its system and will have good news soon regarding Selby.

Self doesn't expect Selby to be cleared before regular season begins

"N" for Knowledge - 10/7/10 from The Scoop Manhattan on Vimeo.

I know we're not much for supporting K-State, the enemy of your enemy is your friend, isn't it? This K-State fan went around Nebraska tailgates before the KSU-NU game last weekend and asked some, well, pretty easy US History/Football questions of the fans there. Needless to say, the answers don't put Nebraska in the best light. And, since I loathe Nebraska more than I loathe K-State and Missouri (well, almost for Missouri), I call this a big win.
