    We've been playing just well enough lately that we can't even hope for KU to overlook us. This one's probably going to be tough to watch all the way through.

    I'm curious though - if we pulled off the upset of the college men's basketball season tomorrow, what would that do to the tone on this board? Would it even make much difference at this point?

    Not for me. Even the blind squirrel finds an acorn every so often. Although this would be a pretty large and tasty acorn!

    I don't see what difference it would make at this point. Would likely only mean that KU had an off day.

    My guess is we would have 3 threads talking about how we have a realistic shot at making the tourny because we obviously could win the rest of our games. Those 3 thread would be rebutted with at least 3 about how it is about time or how it is too late and McD still has got to go. Then a thread about if we could have done this sooner Lucca would have stayed JVB and Boozer wouldn't have gotten hurt.

    This will be a beat down of epic proportions.

    I'll be at a country music concert with the wife for V-day instead. Its going to be THAT bad.

    Would make a big difference to me. I am still hoping McDermott succeeds, although my doubts are substantial. A win over KU at Allen Fieldhouse would be, in my opinion, the win that just might propel him in the right direction and get rid of the dark cloud that has been hanging over his tenure. All that being said, I give it about a one in a million chance of happening.

    One big win does not obviously make a program, but would be a nice step in the right direction.
