    @ Kansas Historically

    Lets face it, everybody in the Big 12 has struggled at Kansas in the Phog these past 10-12 years. Iowa State has had a decent amount of success down there, more than any other team in the Big 12, winning 3 times since 1999. Kansas State (2006) Texas A&M (2007), and Texas (2011) are the only other conference foes to win in the Phog since then. With us playing tonight (Wednesday), we have won twice @ Kansas on a weekday: Wed. Feb 16th, 2000 and Mon. Feb. 5, 2001 and once on a Saturday (2005). I know both of these wins were with Marcus Fizer and Jamal Tinsley, but we have competed in Lawrence, most of the time. Larry Eustachy had a way of motivating players in a unorthodox way, kind of like Fred uses his own tactics. I really do think we can compete tonight if we keep it close early (1st five minutes of 1st half), outrebound them, and turn the ball over less than 12 times.

    I think it being a weekday and with our team not in the "limelight" this year, we could pull a fast one on Kansas. Thoughts?

    Here are the numbers from past years:

    Since 1999-2000 here's the rundown of @ Kansas:
    1999-2000 W 64-62 (Eustachy)
    2000-2001 W 79-77
    2001-2002 L 102-66
    2002-2003 L 70-51

    Avg. Margin of win: +2
    Avg. Margin of loss: -27.5
    Kansas Avg. Ranking: #10

    2003-2004 L 90-89 (OT) (W. Morgan)
    2004-2005 W 63-61 (OT)
    2005-2006 L 88-75

    Avg. Margin of win: +2
    Avg. Margin of loss: -7
    Kansas Avg. Ranking: #9

    2006-2007 L 89-52 (McDermott)
    2007-2008 L 83-59
    2008-2009 L 72-55
    2009-2010 L 73-59

    Avg. Margin of loss: -23
    Kansas Avg. Ranking: #6

    2010-2011 L 89-66 (Hoiberg)
    2011-2012 L 82-73

    Kansas Avg. Ranking: #6

    Re: @ Kansas Historically

    I heard a stat on the radio today that since Bill Self has been at Kansas, they have 7 home losses and 8 Big 12 titles. Just ridiculous...


    How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen Carl Hungus?

    Re: @ Kansas Historically

    The absence of lots of their students should make it a different arena tonight. Hope so.

    We should be really fresh having one game in three weeks. Or really out of synch. Need to get after it early.
