    Speaking of classless KU basketball players . . .

    Does anyone else remember Drew Gooden spiking the ball at center court after KU beat us in Hilton during his last season? I think it was 2002. My dad and I were at that game, and he didn't see it and always has thought I was crazy. I was thinking about this again yesterday after the dunk in the final seconds.

    Anyone else recall this happening?

    I recall incident, not sure of year.

    I guess Releford didn't have to apologize for shoving junk at crowd, Self thinks that is classy no doubt.

    Was this before or after our students used racial slurs and suggested shooting up the KU bus?

    who honestly cares? Did we choke, yes. Take care of business, we didn't lose because of a failed call.

    so we can cheer wiggles doing a throat cutting motion, but then be critical of other teams having swagger?

    Uh, actually we did, Farns. Sorry.

    Although technically you are correct, we didn't win because of a failed call, we lost because of many failed calls.

    Re: Speaking of classless KU basketball players . . .

    There were a lot of emotions in this game. Sucks to be on the wrong end, but it's unfortunate that members from both sides didn't handle it with much class. The student section was brutal all game... and that was awesome. But, on that note, if you're going to attack attack attack, you gotta expect having it shoved back at you if given the opportunity.

    Thanks, carver and Stubborn, for letting me know I was not crazy!

    BigM, do you have a link for the youtube video? I found this article on the google, but no video.

    Yes, KU players were taunting the student section the whole way back into the locker room. Making baby faces and crying motions, jumping up and down while laughing and pointing at us, and of course the choke motion. Some students threw things at them. At least one KU player threw something back at the students.

    I just used profanities and my middle finger through the whole thing.

    Thanks for the link. I do recall that game. I found this part of the article quite interesting.


    Gooden was so relieved, as the final horn sounded he spiked the ball and yelled in celebration as it hung high above the Hilton Coliseum floor.
    He said the act of basketball abuse was in response to former Cyclones Jamaal Tinsley and Marcus Fizer pulling the same stunt during recent ISU victories at Allen Fieldhouse
