A Fitting Tribute to the End of an Era

Consider this mandatory reading. Lost in the constant discussion of Mangino's future and the heartbreak of losing a tough one to Misery is this simple fact: the Todd Reesing Era is officially over. Not only was Todd one of the most exciting college football players I've ever seen, but he was a truly great character and representative of KU off the field, as well. Tim Tebow is an excellent player and person. But I'd be willing to bet that a lot more people out there can relate to Todd's story than Tim's. Feel free to use this thread to share your favorite Reesing stories/ memories/ poetry about Sparky.

Annnnnd...

...now Mangino's "motivational tactics" have become an internet meme. Please for the love of God just pay the fat man to go away. I like this one the best I think: I shoulda cut your scholarship and sent you to Iraq instead of doing that to your brother

Withey Out With Stress Fracture

On its surface, this isn't that big of a deal- player that can't play this semester anyways it out until around December 1. However, doesn't it seem like KU has had an awful lot of stress fractures the last couple of years? Obviously these guys push themselves to the limit day in and day out to become elite players, but is it possible that the training staff is letting the team down with poor stretching or treatment procedures? Even scarier- are Adidas shoes causing this? Obviously the contract they gave us was great, since it supported the entire athletic department instead of just the men's basketball team. But if the gear isn't up to snuff, isn't that a big time problem? Why have we had so many stress fractures?

Mangino: As of now, no players will be suspended

From KUSports. None of us were actually there for the incident, so it's hard for any of us to definitively say this is or isn't the right call. Let's just hope this blows over quickly and get the focus back on the field, IMO.

How Coach Mangino Spends the Offseason

The geniuses over at EDSBS find another brilliant way to fill up the offseason.... Go witness the awesome power of MC Marky M!

Greg Paulus...Husker???

Looks like the former Duke PG is scheduled to visit Lincoln this week. Does anybody else think this guy would be just as much of a panicky b*tch at QB as he was as a PG? When I think of great quarterbacks, I think of Joe Cool... not Coach K's dorky failure.

REMATCH- Why this time we'll prevail

Here is the box score from the first time we played Michigan State. Why will this time be different? A few things that jump out at me: -Travis Releford... 21 minutes. Could be good some day, but isn't ready to compete at this level yet. -Marcus Morris... 8 minutes. Has developed into a key contributor and the clear leader of the Law Firm. -11 missed free throws... struggled with them against Dayton, but hopefully we can get that on track -14 turnovers...won't happen again. Team has improved too much. -5/20 from 3pt range...will be key once again this time around -Not a stat, but a comment from HCBS that's interesting: "He's gone from being maybe one of the best freshmen in our league to not being effective lately. Maybe he's hit the wall" describing the play of Tyshawn Taylor.

VegasWatch's breakdown of the fairness of each team's seeding. Methodology: ran tons of simulations by switching all of the seeds with all the other teams that seed level. The highest level red number for KU shows it has the most unfair path to the Sweet 16 of any team in the tournament.

For the First Time, Mario Little Understands What it Means to Play for Kansas

This is from the KC Star's writeup of last night's game. The money quote: Little played 30 minutes — his previous high was 14 — and for the first time he understood what it meant to wear a Kansas jersey. "Everybody’s got their own opinion about us," Little said, "saying that we’re soft and all that. Guys are trying to out-tough us, trying to talk that talk, just trying to scare us. It’s just talk. We can get through it. "We are the defending national champions."

A Real Life Bobby Boucher?

Only Mike Leach. Apparently, Texas Tech has had issues with their kicking game this year. This weekend they're seriously considering giving Matt Williams a shot. Why is this news? Because Matt came to the coaching staff's attention last weekend. How? By making a 30 yard FG in a contest. Saturday could be a close game. Could you imagine it all coming down to a kick by a kid sitting in the stands only a couple of weeks ago?

The Aftermath

MC Marky M

A sample: Big Mac with the mack suit Stunnin’ in the track suit Cash money got the honeys On my personal jack-fruit Four bills on the scale Still sippin’ Champale Trick bitches get crushed Snort ‘em up like they fat rails Might think we droppin’ retro cause we rock the velour Might think we frontin’ classy ‘Cause we rock the couture Go for the genius lines, stay for the hilarious photoshop of Mangino as Big Pun.
