    KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    Opinion: Iowa State gets final shot at payback | KUsports.com

    In the article, this quote stood out:

    “I don’t think there’s a lot of emotion going into it,” Travis Releford said while tearing the tape off his ankle. “They’re a good team. We know what to expect from them because we played them twice. I think it’s going to be an overall fun game.”
    I sure hope all the KU players are this f'ing cocky. They have no idea the ****storm they stirred up last time - this just adds fuel to the fire.

    DESTROY KU!!!!

    I'm also enjoying the fact that all of the OSU and KSU fans in attendance will be cheering against KU, as well. Tonight is going to be a lot of fun!!!

    Releford thinks it will be fun? Dude, you don't have to wait to play us to grab your junk.

    Travis doesn't have to worry. They also know what to expect from the refs. I think that statement was really referring to the referees.

    They honestly don't care about this game. I feel like all they care about is their locked up #1 seed.

    Re: KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    note the picture above the article with all the "emotion" for texas tech.

    releford isn't going to put something stupid in quotes - they want to crush us and its a big game for them.

    Re: KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    This makes sense to me. KU doesn't really "need" to get up for a game against a 5 seed in a tournament that they dominate. That's where their program is.

    Plus, they won both games this year. Had we won those two in the same fashion with the tables turned, I think the KU players would be raring to go and our players would keep it even-keel.

    We'll see which approach works tonight.

    Re: KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    I'm sure the quiet confidence thing plays well in the article - I just have a hard time buying that they aren't raring to go for this game like we are. Deny it all they want, us beating them last year after a long drought was the beginning of a renewed rivalry - I for one am thrilled we are stepping into that role again!

    Re: KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    Yeah, not buying it. They want to win as badly as ISU players do. They are certainly tired of hearing how their sweep of ISU was not legitimate so they want to make a statement that they are the better team.

    This will be no cakewalk.

    Not sure they care about how others view it as illegitimate. In their heads, they cant be beat.

    Re: KU players not 'up' for this rematch?

    Judging by the comments, we had all the calls up to the last 2 minutes, and then only 2 calls went against us. Everything else went our way. Plus we are lucky when we shoot a lot of 3s, and make them.

    They don't take their physical style into account, or that we tend to stay away from that since we are smaller. Our bigs get in more foul trouble than theirs, 90% of the time.

    It's almost funny how they see the world. Then again, that's how they see us, too.

    In their heads they weren't beat and their win is being unfairly questioned. I'm sure that they want to make a statement that they are the better team that they are sure they are. Sounds like being up for the game to me.

    Your avatar is still freaking me out.

    The only #1 seed they have locked up is what they are playing as now. According to Lunardi, they are a #2 at best in the NCAA, and if they lose to us tonight, they might drop to 3 after getting destroyed at Baylor, also. It's "what have you done for me lately" for the selection committee.

    This is what I'm thinking. They have almost as much to prove as we do. Regardless, I just hope our guys aren't too amped up and press too much. Regardless, tonight is gonna be a blast! Lucky I made my way down for the first time this year
