    I hate KU

    They are too good. Again. 18 straight ain't a fluke. They have killed teams, lulled teams, and have squeaked a couple out. They can flat out play.

    But I thought they were the most overrated team on the planet?

    KU plays all their starters when they have 20 point leads with less than 3 minutes to play like they did against Baylor tonight. That is why I dislike KU. Self seems to either not trust his bench players or thinks he needs the Morris brothers and Selby to finish out games.

    Baylor played UNI highlights before the game. They were ****** and making a statement.

    There's no doubt Kansas is good. Look at the talent that rolls into that program. They have 2 first rounder forwards and selby would be a first rounder if he comes out this year too. The great city of Kansas is packed with talent and they have a legit chance to win it all again.

    My only problem is that they don't get called for nearly as many reach in fouls as they should.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they got knocked out early in the tourney yet again.

    Reach in fouls are nothing. KU is likely to be allowed a basket during half time in the future given their previous treatment.

    I don't really have a problem with any of the KU players or coaches (quite unlike the R Williams years), but quite a few of their games over the years have been blatantly fixed. There's enough evidence that those who think it's on the level are the conspiracy theorists.

    I like Bill Self...but then again, I would probably like anyone that followed Roy W! That is a guy I will never like!

    I don't think the games are fixed. I do think that their teams get the star treatment. As much as it pains me to say, the Tinsley, Fizer team got it's share of star treatment. It just is hard to swallow when the same teams get it every year, even when they have a down year.

    If you've seen how fast this team can blow a 20 point lead you would too. Seriously, we can be up by 16 points and 3 minutes later up by 2.
