Rape, schmape. I've been walking this campus for 20 years and nothings ever happened to me.

I'm so glad that A) this game is on ESPN+ where no one will accidentally watch the hollowed out shell of Hilton Magic get raped by Bill Self and B) I can't really watch it anyway.

I subscribed to that thing a month or so back when the Baylor Volleyball girls were on their run. Hey, $5, volleyball girls. Didn't cancel the monthly subscription so I guess it's there if I want to see that game. I'm not much of one for horror movies though.

Big12 sucks with media rights.  I'm going to say this every single time KU is on espn+.  We have never had more than 2-3 games a year that weren't on TV and NEVER a conference game that hasn't been on TV.  This is fucked.

If this game was on regular television, KU would be in deep shit with the FCC.

Probably our most compete game. Hilton was absolutely silent for much of the game. This ISU team is real bad.

Having these games on ESPN+ indicates how little power KU has when it comes to media rights decision and probably other major decisions affecting the conferences.  Bill Self has even been very candid of the negative aspects of having ten KU basketball games played on ESPN+.  Jeff Long tries to spin this as a positive, but this deal with ESPN also included KU’s (and all other schools except OU and UT) Tier 3 rights for several million dollars per year than what had been reported in the past.

I'd imagine "basketball" schools individually don't carry a lot of weight overall. Maybe a couple but for the most part it's all about the tournament. East Coast interest in the game and just the geographical location (Eastern Time Zone) and the proximity of a lot of those schools to one another helps them. 

For a shit school like Baylor having these games carried by anyone is fantastic. Though I will say that John Morris, "The Voice Of Your Baylor Bears", is okay at calling a bball game on the radio. Well, he's better at it than he is at football. 'Cause fuck him on a football radio broadcast. 

Shame about ISU, I like it when they're good.

Full slate tomorrow. All picks are ignorant of the betting line and influenced by Bourbon.

KU over Baylor. Fuck Baylor

WVU over Tech. Home team. 

Cyclones over OU. Why not?

Frog over OSU. I think the Cowboys may have quit already. 

and finally...give me Texas over Kansas State. A LOT of Bourbons.

This BUKU game is going to be one of those games where BU shows up in Lawrence highly ranked and loses by 25. We've seen it probably 5 times now.

They will have to out score them by 38.

JHawks with 24 at the half. Leading scoring team in the conference, they average nearly 80. Zebras got some work to do.

Baylor is good. Defense travels. Length, rim protection, quick. Win in LBK and The Phog. Assuming they close out a 16pt lead. 
Those offensive boards they hawk are a tremendous advantage. FB

Kansas just sat back and enjoyed it...

Even Tevin Elliot was uncomfortable watching that.

Amazes me that Baylor doesn't seem crippled by their off the field behavior.  


What is this in reference to? I've had a busy wk and haven't been on boards.

Shaggy used to be clever. It has really fallen off.

Painfully aware.

I honestly assumed one of our guys got arrested last night and I didn't hear about it. Any reasonable person would assume that bullneck was expressing surprise that off-the-court conduct of guys on the roster didn't affect their ability to win in Lawrence.

These guys were in diapers during the Bliss scandal, and I would assume literally none were on campus during Briles tenure either.

So just general Baylor hate. I get it.

It just used to be more clever.

Looking like a rebuilding year for Tech. Not having Deshawn Corprew and Tyreek Smith/Ntambwe down low is killing us this season.

Didnt realize until the end Shannon did not play. Dont know whats up wit dat. 
Rebuild is not a word id use to describe it. I think this team will be like all of Beards teams. By February they will be a bitch to beat and there will be no playing for next year bullshit.

Tech should win, KU up 1 at half, WV up 14. 

 

This TCU game is rough on the eyes with WV’s grays, TCU’s purple, & all the dark blue on court.
