    What's with the shorts?

    Has anyone else noticed that some of our players spend more time tugging on their shorts then playing the game? I don't want to name names (Vanderbeken), but isn't it more important for our guys to focus on the game than "look cool" in the uniform?

    correct me if I'm wrong- but watch for it tomorrow.

    It's called elastic that slides into places it shouldn't slide...I've got the game shorts from last year and this year and when you have compression shorts on, they ride up to your armpits if you let them.

    QFT. Compression shorts really screw up the way most athletic shorts sit. They can also slide down too far from the impact of running.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    You mean like those that wear the underarmour shirts (Lucca, Brackins, Garret, etc.)?

    Re: What's with the shorts?

    Steve Wilmer, the referee, messes with his pants more than anybody I've seen. Next time he does a game, everytime down the court he adjusts his pants. Not sure when he will be back though bc I think he just broke a bone in his foot or something.

    I don't hold that against them...those things can make you a lot more comfortable and keep you cooler if you use them properly. I know in baseball they were a savior for me because they kept my shirt from sticking to me and in track kept my jersey from sticking to me.

    After a timeout there was a close up of CB adjusting his junk the whole time out of the huddle to the floor...

    Stinson cared more about his headband than the game, but that didnt stop him from dropping 20 every other game.
