The thing that has just seemed to bother me, ever since HCBS has taken over is that our teams have almost ALWAYS played to the level of the competition (and/or) the level of hype that comes around with that game. So if there is no hype and a shitty team, then you will see a terrible Jayhawks team. If there is a decent team with tons of hype (Kansas State/Temple anyone?) then you get to see what this team should really perform like. This is where I want to compare to Kansas State (and this is where I'm going to get blasted)
Hey guys how's it going there, first time FanPost for this guy, I usually just like to hang around and read what everyone else has to say, but I thought this just needed to be said. First of all I'd like to point out that this post is before any loss (god please no) that may occur today, so I'm not pulling a Whitlock and spewing shit outta my mouth because I'm pissed. So here we go....
I can't believe I'm saying this but I almost envy Kansas State. They DO NOT have quite the talent that KU does, but they do have two things that I would love for my Jayhawks to have, CONSISTENCY and TOUGHNESS. Now granted, they have had some close games, but they just don't have the talent and depth (IMO) of Kansas. The main reason they are a Number 2 seed is because of the two reasons I mentioned earlier. If you have a team that is leading in free throws, and is one of the top rebounding teams in the nation, you know you have a tough team. Now granted maybe the Mean Green isn't the team that Lehigh is, but wouldn't it be nice to have a first round game that you can just breathe easy from the tipoff? I just want to see a team that performs the same way against Lehigh as it does against Kentucky (and hopefully it's the high level we all know they're capable of).
Okay, I'm done with my little rant here so I'm ready to get some interesting comments.
