    Re: Some good news

    Now if we could just get the Morris twins to play as soft as JVB down low we might have a glimmer of hope.

    Tyrel Reed and Tyshawn Taylor are also nursing injuries, but both are expected to be available to play today.

    -1 for me. I guess I always get a bit sensitive to this.

    Rehabbing athletes is what I do for a living. I've also been an injured college athlete. I always feel bad for guys who put in tons and tons of work just to get injured.

    I agree that this will help ISU, but I wouldn't title a thread "Good news" and then talk about someone needing knee surgery.


    Im all about celebrating other teams misfortunes, but just not when it deals with injuries.

    Maybe Im the only one.

    He's not celebrating the injury. He's celebrating the impact on KU.

    I apologize; the thread title was maybe inappropriate. I certainly am not happy about the injury of anyone, but in relation to today's game it is good news for Cyclone fans. I wish Robinson a speedy recovery, but I hope ISU can take advantage of his and Selby's absence today. Let's hug it out and get on to the game.

    This is not good!

    Now Kansas will just have an excuse when ISU wins.

    Now if only the Morris twins got Nancy Kerriganed...on a side note I hope Morningstar gets a DUI on the way to the game or somehow gets into a fender bender with Keiton Page.

    Sucks for a kid thats going through soo much this year. All those family deaths and now an injury, hes got to be one tough kid. Hopefully he gets a speedy recovery and plays well after this, he deserves it.

    If we would happen to win, I won't be upset that they will have injury excuses.
