Welcome to the Rock Chalk Talk and your open thread for the Kansas Jayhawks vs the Kansas State Wildcats.
Tonight your #1 RANKED Jayhawks head to a place that we affectionately refer to as Allen Fieldhouse West but our friends like to call the Octagon of Mild Inconvenience. Kansas State is on the ropes and this is a game I fully expect them to come out swinging. They have the #1 ranked team and their most hated rival walking into their building and they are in desperate need of a win. Get ready for one hell of an 80's dance party complete with the Wabash Cannonball and some sign that will inevitably read EMAW which is the correct spelling for the sound made by a dying giraffe.
For Kansas it's the Jayhawks chance to show they can take a teams best punch. A chance to show they DO truly embrace being number one and being the hunted. And lastly it's a chance to keep pace with those Longhorns from Texas. There are a lot of voices out there crying foul over the Jayhawks being #1. Time to show they can handle the heat and it starts tonight.
