Kaun with 2 quick fouls called on him. Though the 2nd was an absolute horrid call as it should have been on Rush.

Anymore I think you have to pay for the KU play by play. At least last time I looked into it you did.

A little late, I know. Looks like Nebraska was running a matchup zone and also a triangle and 2 defense. Took KU a little while to figure it out. KU was missing a lot of those early 3s, but several of them were open looks. Just took the Jayhawks a little while to warm up. ;)

I wish I could watch this game, it sounds like complete domination. Finally this team is putting down the hammer on opponents. Blowouts in the last three games. Great sign going into the post season. I think everyone is starting to know their role, and young guys are maturing. I think the X-Factor will be how well Arthur plays.

Put the scrubs in, and make it a fiddie point margin. Time for Kleinman. I actually think Kleinmann will see decent minutes by the time he's a Sr. Think Christian Moody. Everytime he comes in, he looks good and fundamentally sound.

Good fundamentally but he seems slow as molasses in January, and I think he'd get abused when he's on D.


Only 3 roster players are without points in the game so far. 5 guys in double digit points.

I've been a firm believer that you play hard the entire game. Same goes for football. I have no problem with a team that is in the BCS title hunt blowing the shit out of another team. It's not bad sportsmanship, it's playing hard. I don't know why people think that way. If I was the team getting beat down, I wouldn't want charity, by a team going easy on you and not trying as hard as they could.

It's sports, try stopping them from scoring instead. It's third stringers, I encourage them to chuck it up. They bust their asses all year making the starters better, they deserve the glory and the green light.

Jayhawks can't win for shit with some people. In the first game against Neb. people were shitting on them for "letting up in the second half" when they won by ONLY 20. Now we have people bitching about stomping on their throat and drilling them by 53.

And where are all the dumbasses talking about how Bill Self never tries to blow anyone out and just wants to play slow ball to win by 8-10.

Yeah... I agree they lose focus too much, but no one is going to look back and say they should have beaten Nebraska by 50. It has been a problem in the past, and we can only hope they keep their focus in big games... but they are college kids playing on the road, and had like a 30-0 run at one point.
So, I guess today's post is...

Yeah... I agree we shouldn't have run up the score*, but no one is going to look back and say they should have beaten Nebraska by 20. It's never been a problem before, and we can only hope they can reach that uncomplainable 21-49 point win during the tournament... but they are college kids that get no playing time at home, and they were just having fun.

that is so completely ignorant I don't even know where to start. Their running up the score in football normally involved 2nd and 3rd team players then entire second half. It wasn't their fault that their 3rd tier players were better then most teams first team.

Heck, I'm not even a Neb fan and I could see that. Of course if OU could have kept from getting in trouble with the NCAA, we would probably be saying the same thing about them.

Well, Oklahoma was every bit as good as the cornholers but they managed to keep about a three TD margin. Nebraska couldn't though. Oh, and if you want to see ignorant, look in the mirror. You write at the fifth grade level.

Everybody scores for Kansas
Walk-on caps historic 53-point romp for Jayhawks
By Kevin Haskin
The Capital-Journal
Published Sunday, February 18, 2007

LAWRENCE Even when Kansas wanted to call it quits Saturday, it was too hard not to pile on more points.

With a blowout against Nebraska mercifully winding inside the final minute in Allen Fieldhouse, KU coach Bill Self signaled to hold the basketball and not shoot.

Everybody scores for Kansas
Jason Hunter / The Capital-Journal
Kansas junior walk-on Brad Witherspoon scored the first two points of his Jayhawk career against Nebraska's Ben Nelson and Kyle Marks (12) with 17 seconds remaining in KU's 92-39 victory. Witherspoon, from Humboldt, made the team in an October tryout.

But on the other end, Jeremy Case devised another plan involving walk-on Brad Witherspoon. The play they collaborated on worked to perfection. Witherspoon scored his first KU basket with 17 seconds remaining to cap the No. 9 Jayhawks' 92-39 romp, and for the first time all day Self threw up his hands.

"I'm happy for our guys that they made shots, but I've been on the other end and it's not very fun,'' Self explained. "I've never encouraged anyone to score when the game's over. On that last possession, they did come up and pressure Jeremy and he did throw it to an open man, and Brad was going to shoot it.''

With the bucket by the Humboldt junior, all 13 Jayhawks who got in scored.

"That's one of those times when you turn your back on your coach, and say, 'We've got to get him a shot,' '' said KU starter Russell Robinson. "He made it, so it was worth it. We weren't trying to disrespect Nebraska or anything like that. Brad Witherspoon is an unbelievable worker. He's probably waited his whole life for that shot.''

The 53-point defeat was the second-worst in Nebraska history. Only Wilt Chamberlain inflicted greater pain on the Huskers. A 102-46 loss at Kansas in 1958 ranks as the worst all-time for NU.

The 39-point output was the lowest in the 3-point/shot clock era for the Huskers, and dates to a 41-39 loss in 1984 against Jack Hartman and Kansas State in the Big Eight Tournament.

As for conference opponents playing KU, the point total was the lowest since a 52-39 win for the Jayhawks over Oklahoma State in 1967.

"We're trying to build a program,'' said first-year Nebraska coach Doc Sadler. "This isn't the worst defeat that's taken place in this building, and if it is, it's just one loss. Kansas is better than us on many levels, from the coach on down.''

On down was where Self kept looking along his bench.

He motioned for seldom-used subs beginning at the 5:12 mark, when NU's Jay-R Strowbridge auditioned for Bill Callahan's secondary, tackling Julian Wright from behind and drawing an intentional foul.

As always, Witherspoon was the last Jayhawk to enter after Big Jay waved a spoon and led the chant for his entry.

"I love that,'' Witherspoon admitted. "It's probably the best feeling in the world. Everybody gives me crap and asks, 'How much are you paying people to yell your name?' ''

This time, Witherspoon left feeling even better after scoring his first points for KU.

"After I made it, everything was a blur,'' he said.

The Huskers (15-10, 4-7 Big 12) left feeling the same way.

Oh, they did manage to crack double figures by the 12:08 mark of the first half, which was something of a milestone after they didn't reach that mark until 1:52 remained in the first meeting on Jan. 29, when KU raced to a 43-8 advantage in Lincoln.

This time, Nebraska trailed 20-18 with seven minutes left in the first half, only to be outscored 72-21 the rest of the way. NU star Aleks Maric was injured on an inadvertent kick to the ribs by KU's Sasha Kaun with 12:52 remaining. Maric, who was coming off a 41-point performance against Kansas State, never re-entered.

Not that it mattered. The Jayhawks (23-4, 10-2) already led 51-26 after a 15-4 run to begin the second half. The Huskers shot 31.4 percent, including 3 of 20 (15 percent) from 3-point range.

Brandon Rush and Darrell Arthur scored 13 points apiece to lead five KU scorers in double figures. The KU bench added 51 points, including a season-high of nine for Case.

"To be honest, I didn't think we came out with good focus,'' Self said after the Jayhawks remained tied with Texas A&M atop the Big 12. "But I thought our defense was fine the whole day.''

I was thinking they need to lose one more to refocus before the tournament, but maybe they've already learned their lesson when it comes to staying focused. :shrug:
