    Wow, We're Playing Against a Really Young / Inexperienced Kansas Team

    It will be interesting to see which team uses the "We're Too Young / Inexperienced" excuse after the loss:

    Pete (Sr)......Collins (Jr)
    Garrett (So).....Moringstar (So)
    Lucca (Fr /So)....Reed (So)
    Ham (Fr).......Taylor (Fr)
    Brackins (So).....Aldrich (So).

    Yeah, Kansas isn't that great this year, mainly due to the fact that they're young. (Plus they lost all of their best players)

    They can't use that excuse ... that's our excuse.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    You just helped me to make my point!

    Youth is not an excuse for this years team. Anybody who uses it is using it as a way to make them feel better

    Yes but they had good upperclassmen to show them the ropes.

    no our excuse is that the refs let kansas shoot 3s when its a dead ball. and if they make them they get to keep the points.

    I'm of the side that talent and coaching make up for the inexperience. Derrick Rose was the 18 yo starting PG for Memphis last year and he's having a great year with da Bulls.

    KU is 13-4; 2-0 with some good wins.....and on the road, no less.

    I disagree that youth is not an excuse for this year's team. Just because we might not beat Kansas who is also young, doesn't mean that it doesn't work as an excuse for us. Kansas won the national championship last year and those sophomores and older kids were a part of that. Invaluable. What have we had over the past few years? Youth, player turnover, and 0.500 seasons. That does not instill confidence in our players.

    Kansas then comes with a bench of
    Freshman - Morris
    Freshman - Morris
    Freshman - Relaford

    We come with a bench of
    Senior - Thompson
    Senior - Haluska

    We should win as long as Collins and Aldrich are held in check. Collins is waayyy better than Petey but hopefully Brackins can keep Aldrich in check and not visa versa
