    Commentators have no say in the results of the game. Liking certain commentators over others is just a matter of preference.

    Claiming that the refs are in collusion to prevent ISU from achieving their potential is not at all like preferring different announcers. I have never seen a fanbase so universally convinced that there is a coordinated effort to keep their team from achieving things than from the ISU fan base and I used to live in the home of the most insufferable fan base in the nation in Cleveland.

    I do not discourage anyone from posting their thoughts here. I just find them amusing and unique.

    I know you're a little dense, but my point is that every fanbase is irrational. If you really want to keep going about referees, then we can start pulling quotes from every Jayhawk loss. Your fans are quick to blame officials too.

    You would be tolerable if you offered some insight. However, the best you ever manage is
    UHHHGGGGG. KU GOOD. Everybody else jelly.

    That seems to be a reading comprehension issue vs. an issue with what I post. I talk about all sorts of portions of the game as well as many different teams. Maybe you see "from a KU fan" and fail to give my posts their fair shake, who knows.

    dude, I’ve always believed there is no more insecure fanbase in college athletics than Iowa. Giving them a run for their money is bad look, for a nationally relevant program like Kansas basketball

    Talking about college basketball makes me insecure? Weird, I just thought it meant that I really like the sport and enjoyed interacting with fan bases who also really like the sport and who are the only other fan base in our conference that consistently support their program and follow the sport. Huh.

    You are always invited to not subject yourself to such insufferable people by leaving. Seriously.

    Oh, I understand. The "a KU fan posting here must be because they are insecure weirdos who feel challenged by ISU" shtick is exactly what I expect from the "everyone is out to get us" fan base.

    As someone that lives in KC and has a number of KU fans as friends, I can honestly say that most of them truly do not realize how arrogant they can sound when it comes to defending their team. These are people that I trust with my kid, house, car, etc. Great friends, but I know that certain topics will end with the same rhetoric. They really don't hear their own arrogance.

    Most of them have never known anything but sustained success. They don't have the ability to be a fan of their football team because they don't have experience of supporting a struggling team. Hell, we've seen a small percentage of our fan base that have a similar entitlement because they weren't around to experience the really rough periods.

    What's funny to me is that none of my KU friends have ever thought it was a good idea to come onto this board searching for affirmation or to have their ego stroked. They realize that going to an opposing fan base's website and picking a fight does not equate to "wanting to talk basketball". It's just juvenile.

    It's hilarious that you think I might come here for affirmation or an ego stroke considering that it would be impossible for me to get either of those things here. Have you not been reading the responses to my posts?

    You feed off the responses so it does have something to do with your ego.

    Out of curiosity, what is your reasoning then? I think you have a good amount of basketball knowledge and are a loyal fan of your team. I have zero problem with that.

    But what do you hope to gain by saying how amusing it is that fans on an Iowa State fan board choose to vent our frustrations to other Iowa State fans? You're surely not thinking you're going to change peoples' minds by the way you condescendingly post. That really only leaves the option that you're trying to stir the pot.

    Did an LSU player hang on the rim after fouling a Kentucky player?

    And, do you think this is a traveling violation?
