    Paul Shirley in DM Register

    I normally find Paul Shirley fairly insufferable, but I have to agree with him on this one.

    Re: Paul Shirley in DM Register

    I've had that exact encounter at least twice in person. And I see the same (Kansas) feelings on social media, internet and article comments.

    I guess they don't understand a blown call with 4.9 secs left if a bit harder to overcome than a blown call in the first half.

    Oh, and about four bad calls in the last 2:00...

    Withey's moving picks don't seem to count either

    This isn't an argument we want to get in with any team. We do the same thing A LOT off the pick and pop.

    We should be very careful to avoid making fun of the real victims here.
    It's difficult to deal with your 'natural' advantages in conference play being highlighted for the whole world to see. There is a real sense of loss that goes with that.

    Worst game? KU shot out of their mind. My first instinct would have been to deck that guy.

    Yeah, clearly Johnson was playing poorly, right? Either the other guy isn't a basketball fan at all, and just wanted to run his mouth, or else he is a ridiculous homer.

    Re: Paul Shirley in DM Register

    Good piece by Shirley. He is a guy who everything he rights you will either absolutely agree with or absolutely disagree with. There is no middle ground. This sums it up very well though.

    Since we're talking about a Kansas fan, how did you get any of those 'or' statements in there?

    Kansas is a cautionary tale in marrying your sister on a state level.

    Re: Paul Shirley in DM Register

    Once I was attending an ISU basketball game, and we were staying at a hotel, apparently Paul Shirley's family from Kansas was all visiting, attending the game and we ran into them and Paul there at the lobby. We didn't bother them, but you could tell where Paul got his tall genes.

    Yeah J-Squawk fans are the worst fans in the big 12 and its not even close to 2nd place since Nebraska now resides in the little 12 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm hoping and literally praying that KU either loses in KCity or in the 1st round of the ncaa's.......................

    My favorite scenario has us beating them in KC.

    Re: Paul Shirley in DM Register

    It's funny to see the hatred switch from K-State fans to Kansas fans. People need to realize that Goemaw doesn't represent K-State fans. Visit their scout site sometime; as long as you're not a total doosher, they're pretty reasonable
