New Logo is LIVE!!! After an extensive vote we had a one vote differential between option #1 and #3. I had duplicate IP's pulled and the State of Kansas was still the winner. Special thanks to JHawr1 for his submission, congrats on your prize and most likely a HOF nomination and induction. I also wanted to personally thank all the other individuals that entered. I know I speak for quite a few people on here when I say that I was blown away by the quality of the response to this contest. I was a little nervous when we got this going and I've ended up with enough quality options that I wish I could use multiple logos. Thanks again to JHawr1 and also JaxJayhawk who's had several great designs and came in a close second. If you could both email me I'd like to go ahead and give second place a prize as well.
Here's a little chart that gives a different view of the KU three point defense. This chart shows how many more (or fewer points) KU opponents would have scored in a game if they "shot their average" from the 3, still taking the same number of shots. For example, UCLA shot 14 3-pointers against KU in Maui. With UCLA's 30% 3P% they'd expect on average to sink 4.2 of them for 12.6 points. Instead, they sank 8 for 24 points, resulting in 11.4 points more than they "should have" scored. My lazy-ass guesstimate is that, luck aside, our defense is spotting tournament-caliber teams one made 3 per game.
BONUS PRIZE UPDATE!!! THE TOP FIVE from this weeks pick 'em contest will be landing themselves a Mission Chips Border War pack like the one shown above. TOP FIVE PEOPLE! And if you're going to be at the Border War be sure to stop by the Nachotron at Arrowhead. BONUS PRIZE:Quick reminder to submit your pick 'em picks. This weeks winner will be the recipient of some limited edition Kansas Jayhawk tortilla chips courtesy of Mission Foods. The fine folks at Mission foods sent me this little NACHO pack last week and they've agreed to send one out to this weeks pick 'em winner as well. Pretty cool concept if you ask me, but then again I'm a Jayhawk fans so if you slap a Jayhawk on something I'm probably going to like it. Beer not included
