You’re missing an article from XYZ.com that says K-State actually has the best future back up point guard in the country.

Bob hates KU. It would say something like beakers, sneakers, and cheaters.

I didn't read the opening post because child's play parody - albeit flattering in this case - is just not my thing. Here's my take this Monday morning.

Ku - Self starting to put it together
TxT - just worn out when playing Cats
Baylor - Drew will sort it out
ISU - a solid outfit
Texas - lots of talent, little cohesion
TCU - winning on the margins
OU - all the early hype was just that
WVU - two fine shooting guards, not much else
oSu - nothing to play for
K-State - good victory

Oklahoma St might have nothing to play for but they just beat Baylor the road.

League is loaded.

Is this the start of a run to save Bruce Weber's job?

1. KSU - beat TTU, hottest team in the league, defense travels
2. KU - Kansas is the best CBB state in the nation
3. Baylor - still a top seed in bracketoligy but finding life tough in the Big 12 recently
4. Texas - Questionable officiating in “loss” to ISU
5. TTU - Texas is the 2nd best CBB state in the nation
6. OSU - beat down of Baylor doesn’t go unnoticed around the league
7. ISU - ho-hum game and lucky to escape against Texas. Don’t see them beating any team above them on a neutral floor right now
8. WVU - Take me home country roads, because they struggle on the road
9. OU - should probably be above ISU after head to head matchup, but just can’t push them up that high right now
10. TCU - the “easiest” matchup in the league
This is fantastic

Well-done satire.

Now I expect one of these every week from you. And we need a real one from surly, then we can compare/contrast.

Ku game in Manhattan Saturday should be a slobber-knocker. ESPN Plus no less.

The key will be if Markquis Nowell can defensively dominate their point guard shutting down easy entry passes to the post because State is bad in the paint.

The LHN guys concluded last night's game with: This was not an upset!

K-State playing with a full lineup is pretty stout. So, Saturday could really shake up the power rankings, or maybe not.

Beard probably wonders today why he left Lubbock. Wait till he returns. HA.

For the record, since that kiss of death post by surly Arizona went 4-7 and got obliterated in the first round of the playoffs.
