Open Thread: Game #13 KU vs. Detroit Mercy

This is your open thread for tonight's contest against the Detroit Mercy Titans at Allen Fieldhouse. So far this season the Titans have posted a 3-8 record, including an early season conference loss against Wright State. They are on a one game winning streak after beating Northeastern 60-51 on December 22nd. A little nugget of information for all of you out there, Dick Vitale used to be the head coach at Detroit Mercy, before failing miserably forcing him to fill us with his yelling and senseless chatter.

I should be around for this game and this open thread, but I will also be watching the two bowl games (Holiday Bowl between Cal and A&M and Texas Bowl between Rutgers and KSU) so my full focus won't be on the Jayhawks. If you have anything Kansas to say, put it in this thread. Hopefully we can get some gametime chatter going in our last game of 2006.

By the way, in the bowl games go Oklahoma State (up 24-14 right now at halftime), Texas A&M (Holiday Bowl at 8 EST) and Kansas State (Texas Bowl at 8 EST) so the Big 12 can win ESPN's Bowl Cup Challenge or whatever. I know it is tough to root for the Wildcats, but the Big 12 needs to prove that we are the best conference in America hands down.

No game keys, nothing like that tonight because if we play our game, we will win guranteed. I will make a prediction though, I can't help it.

Kansas 83 Detroit Mercy 68

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
