More perspective on the Iowa State v Kansas game
Fans that think refs or the Big 12 Conference really cares who wins the games to the extent of giving KU calls to help win are delusional. Even though there was a bad call, Elijah Johnson still had to step up and hit 2 free throws in a hostile environment. He still had to hit big three point buckets down the stretch to bring his Jayhawks back. This was an all-time performance in the history of KU. No one told Iowa State they weren’t allowed to play in the overtime.

“They gave me the ball. It was nice in the locker room,” said Self, who accepted a keepsake commemorating his 500th career coaching victory.

I'm sure this comes as absolutely no surprise. Not only did the Jayhawks have one of the best running attacks in the Big 12 last season, but they also are bringing back their top three ball carriers and still have some pretty incredible depth.

I get what Bill Self is saying, but as a Kansas fan the Big 12 title means a lot and part of that might be the streak but I still think of it as a pretty big measuring stick for our program.

Inspiration struck Conor Mongan in November 2002, while he was sitting on the purple, velour sofa in his apartment in the Mission Valley neighborhood of San Diego, Calif. He was watching a television news report about a court appearance by Michael Jackson when a close-up image of the pop star appeared on the screen. Mongan shuddered at Jackson's unsightliness, at his unnaturally pointy and scabby nose, his too-white skin and bug-eyed expression. Then he thought:
