    Goes to show how far the program has fallen. We need to get it back to where it was, and I think that can happen with Mac and his staff. But needs to start happening NOW.

    I'm glad opposing players don't enjoy Hilton, they aren't supposed to.


    I'll take a Jack & Hilton

    Re: LJWorld Big 12 BBall Straw Poll

    This would have been much better if an equal number of players from each team were interviewed. Three players from KU and Mizzou? Of course we didn't get good ratings. Not to mention NONE of our own players.

    I interviewed three players each from Kansas, Texas A&M and Missouri; two each from Nebraska, Colorado, Baylor, Texas Tech and Kansas State; and one from Oklahoma. No players were interviewed from Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Texas.

    With the exception of the first question, players were allowed to vote for their own teams/teammates. A half-vote means that a player split his vote between two choices.

    I will give them credit for the floor comments though. There are some cracks in the seams of the floor peices and dead spots

    I wouldn't claim to know on that stuff, but one of the comments by someone who selected Hilton as worst arena was, “There was nobody there when I went. Nobody there. It was empty.” Seriously? Even in the lean years recently we've had decent attendance at conference games, unless this player plays for a super crappy team like Colorado, in which case I'd have to tell him to take a look in the mirror.

    Yeah I would agree that those comments are incredibly outlandish, I was just commenting on the floor itself. From my experience, I have caught my feet on some of the seams of the floor pieces many times, but it could also be from my own clumsiness too. Plus, just from dribbling on the floor, I have noticed a number of dead spots. (Granted I haven't been back to the floor of Hilton since i graduated last May, so these things may have been corrected)
