    10 years ago...

    This is the 10th NCAA tournament since the Fizer/Tinsley run.

    I hate how far in the past that has become. It was the only thing we had to brag about to other fans. Now we dont have anything (unless you are that guy that likes to bring up stuff 10 years old)

    Hard to believe I was in HS when this all happened.

    We must've cheated. Must've not done things the right way. But....now, it's all "integrity".

    Re: 10 years ago...

    I have the tape of the Big 12 Tournament Championship game on tape, and there's one moment from that game I'll never forget. It was toward the end when it was obvious ISU was gonna win, and the announcer states that ISU was the Big 12 regular season champion, the Big 12 Conference Tournament champion, had the Big 12 Newcomer of the year, Big 12 coach of the year, and the Big 12 player of the year. It still gives me chills listening to it.

    I've been thinking about this lately too. I wonder if LE would still be around if he'd stayed out of trouble. I would think the program would be in a much better place today.

    and rewarded with a #2 seed in the tourney. I watched all 3 Big 12 tourney games from that year the other day. I love seeing Gottlieb get his *** beat!!

    I don't think we have had a pair as talented as Fizer/Tinsley since either.

    I was watching the KU-KSU game last night and they were talking about Big 12 teams that had won both the regular season and the conference tournament titles in the same season. I think they listed all of them but left us out.

    Larry told us at the time to enjoy it, and that runs like that are rare in college basketball. He knew, although there is no way in hell he knew how bad the lean years would actually get.

    I'm not even sure we've been to the tourney since this web site was created.

    Re: 10 years ago...

    At the time I had just started a new job and couldn't get the time off to go to the Big 12 tourney or Minneapolis regional. I watched and listened to the games. I destinctly remember that I wasn't that upset that I couldn't go. I remember thinking "there will be more good times in the near future." Oh if only I could have known how wrong I would be.
