Are these fans really this dumb?

And yet another gem.

...truth be told a monkey could win the national championship with brandon rush, mario chalmers, darnell jackson, russelll robinson, darrell arthur, and sherron collins... bill self is more known for his choke jobs than his title last year...

And take a look at the score predictions. Not one single NDST fan predicts a KU win. I mean, it's great to be a fan that supports your team. But c'mon, nobody in their fanbase thinks they might lose? :shake:

A lot of the upset talk is fueled by the relative close proximity of NDS.

It won't matter. KU should ask if they'd like to grab their ankles or their knees.

I've been watching bisonville.com very closely and they are VERY confident they'll win. There is one poster there (Mr. Meanor) who takes everything with a grain of salt and is careful to declare victory.

EVERYONE ELSE I have seen on there pretty much believes that NDSU has to go cold shooting for them not to win. They don't think that even if they hit their shots KU can still beat them. And they are very sensitive. Anytime a KU fan comes on with a legitimate point about KU's relative athleticism or how they've been tested this year (Oh yeah, well we almost beat USC and they are WAY better than anyone you played!!!!) they pull out the "arrogant KU fan" card. Which has been true of course of a few posters.

Personally I have been respectful there and brought up good game points and I've been treated well.

Ok, maybe there are now couple that don't predict their team will win. When I last looked yesterday, I didn't see one NDST fan that predicted a KU win. And even when one of their own question that overconfidence, they jump all over him.

We are regularly one of the nation's best teams. We won the title last year. What do they have? I just don't get it.

A young program (at the D1 level) with excitement surrounding it. An opponent they perceive as beatable (probably because of the Baylor loss).

KU is going to win. You know this. Which is why the excitement of some homers from North Dakota shouldn't get you all pissy.

And the year before... and Bradley went on to beat Pitt after us so they weren't a horrible team.

As far as I'm concerned, the worst NCAA tournament loss in recent history was to Bucknell and that was an abortion of a game by a team that wasn't Bill Self's.

I would rather be fired up and expecting to knock off KU in a big upset and just be deflated later on. That's the fun of college sports. The emotional roller coaster ride.

They're just excited is all. Nothing to see here.

I remember 5 years ago when they were still Division II and they played games against U of North Dakota. They got their asses beat down back then, too :D

They did have some great football teams, and I think the men's BBall won Division II in the early 90s. Then their football team starts beating teams like Minnesota... actual honest-to-goodness Division I opponents.

They think since their team has SOME success, that facing real Division I opponents will be as easy as facing their rivals from Division II, where they did win a lot of games.

I think these fans definitely need a good ol' fashioned beat-down in the tournament for the next couple of years before they gain some sense about these types of games. In the meantime, they'll have it set in their minds that NDSU actually has the talent to win it all. Which is bogus, obviously.

Your memory sucks. If you recall, KU made the Elite Eight in Self's first season.

The year before last, KU got to the Elite Eight and lost to UCLA in the state of California. Hardly a loss to a crappy team.

Bradley, as I recall, had a couple of NBA players on that roster. So, they weren't exactly your typical mid major. Add in the fact that KU had no real veteran upperclassmen leaders on that squad. Chalmers, Rush, and Wright were all freshmen. Kaun, Jackson, and Robinson were sophomores.

Bucknell, yes that was totally crappy. But I chalk that one up to those guys were kind of spoiled under Roy and never totally bought into Self's style. That team was bad down the last stretch of the season. It should not have been as big a surprise as it was.

This year, KU has a couple of guys who were major contributors to that title run last year. Albeit, Cole didn't play many minutes last season due to all the talent and experience in front of him. But Collins has been there and done that.

At this point people outside of reasonable Kansas fans don't even try to understand what happened during those two years (and Bradley won a couple of other games around that time)... whatever. It's funny to see people pull Bucknell out of their ass after all this time just so they have some ammo.

Yeah, with the exception of last year, we lost two first round games, went to a Championship game, another FF, a couple of EEs... Gosh, with how unsuccessful they've been this decade, I sure hope they repeat despite it being (another) rebuilding year. It would be tragic if they somehow made it to the SS or EE and then "choked"... completely unacceptable if they lost in the first two rounds. Honeymoon's over, Self, time to reel off 5 or 10 NCs in a row.

And it's really funny if someone actually said Bill Self is known more for choking... hmmm, fans who think losing in the EE is choking, sounds familiar. :hmmm:

Those are good points. I guess I was just surprised that they didn't seem to have many realists. And when a realist finally did speak up, he was chastised for it. At least there are KU fans that believe that our team could lose.

KU will be fine in the first round this year. Why? Because their first round opponent doesn't start with a B. That is Bill Self's achilles heel in the tourney. If you drew Binghamton in the first round, then that's cause for worry.

I wouldn't worry to much about the press, they're trying to generate interest and be fortune tellers. If they had to put a grand of their own money on this game, they ain't going all in on the Bison. They are not a good defensive team and they are going to get worn out. If we don't get out and defense the three point line, it MIGHT get interesting, MIGHT. But, interesting won't be enough.

I think they have a darn good shot at knocking KU off. Senior laden team has played well against big teams before see Wisconsin and Marquette and the game will be like a home game for them in Minneapolis.

Also Barry Hinson is on the staff now, that makes a choke job even easier.

Hinson in no way, shape or form helps coaching. I forget his exact title. But, if you mean by negative mojo that he's affiliated with KU - then yes, I'd agree.

I'm not getting worked up on this. To me, if a KU fan gets annoyed at seeing these fans talking about how they can win, that points to the KU fan's own uncertainty about the game.

As a KU fan who has followed the team somewhat closely this year, I do not expect them to reach the final four despite the obvious talent (way too inconsistent), but I'm not worried about the 1st game at all. I'm pretty much 95%+ sure we will win. When I see these NDSU fans talk about how they are going to topple the Jayhawks, I basically think "aww, how cute", and move on. I am not going to go to their board and try to explain why I think they are going to lose because that wouldnt be welcome, but I also don't get annoyed about their homer fan support either.

Re: Score predictions KU-NDSU

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NDSU 65
KU 78

I think the green and yellow glasses are on most of the folks making these picks! I'd give NDSU a 5-10% chance of winning. To me NDSU has already won, not in the sense that they're better than KU, just in the sense of making the big dance and having a chance to play a competitive game. I just think actually winning the game is too much to ask and a bit out of reach.

Flame away but I think I'm being objective. This is Kansas for cripes sake!

Don't get me wrong, there is no bigger SU fan than this guy and I'll be there chearing loudly. I'm just saying wishing something doesn't make it so.

I am an NDSU graduate. I live in Bismarck, ND. I believe we have about a 5 percent chance of winning. Everyone else I talk to around here says the same. We're happy to get in - but there are no illusions of NDSU winning a number of games, even one.

Just to play one game is a big deal for a program new to Division 1.

Don't think that everyone posting on that bulletin board reflects the consensus. Those posting are probably fans that are already in downtown Minneapolis waiting for the game to start. And if I could be there with them, I would be doing the same.

Lots of excitement, but lots of realism here.

There are legit reasons to pick this as an upset game.

1: NDSU is a 3 point shooting team and a team that can shoot the 3 can win any game if a couple of players get hot.

2: Goes along with 1, KU has given up the perimeter D a bit this season. Although it's still better outside D than NDSU is used to so maybe this isn't true.

3: KU is in a bit of a funk.

4: NDSU has more veteran players and have nothing to lose.

Even so, all of that combined gives them maybe a 15% shot if you ask me because if I made a list of KU pros it would have about 20 items and #1 is KU will have the 3 or 4 best athletes on the court at any given time. KU will win this game.

Don't they know that all they can talk about in the presence of KU fans(one must always assume a KU fan is present, even on your own school centered internet chat board) is how they will have the ever living crap beat out of them by a bunch of soon to be Saints?

If you would ask anyone here (outside of the bulletin board you were on) if NDSU had a good chance to win, people here would say there's a chance.

I don't think a 7 hour drive is a problem for KU fans either, which incidentally is also going to be a much larger fan base. If NDSU has more people there I will be surprised. I guess the dark horse is whether KU fans take the game seriously enough to actually show up on friday, but that's never been a problem in the past.

I think the only one epically failing is all the douche bag trolls that have registered on their board in the past few days just to show their ass.

You think any of them post here regularly?

Naw.......... couldn't be. LMAO

Nice try. You are the one that posted their website on this board a few times earlier this week encouraging all KU fans to register over there and basically talk a bunch of smack, as if there's any reason to talk smack on a team in their 1st year of division 1 basketball. Then when they do you blame it on Mizzou fans. :rolleyes:

The Bisonville mods said there were a bunch of MU guys over there trolling. Yeah I'm sure you're above doing that. Although I haven't seen anybody from here over there.

Some interesting stuff they post on their forum.

Are these fans really this dumb?

And yet another gem.



And take a look at the score predictions. Not one single NDST fan predicts a KU win. I mean, it's great to be a fan that supports your team. But c'mon, nobody in their fanbase thinks they might lose? :shake:Yeah, it reminds me a LOT of the KU fans leading up to the Bradley game. Not one (vocal) KU fan predicted a Bradley win or a score that kept Bradley within 10. The radio call-in shows in KC were presenting questions like, "How much will KU win by [sic]?" and folks were all talking about the next round.

Fans are stupid.

that too, although I've never quite bought into that since it's not that far for KU either.

The Twin Cities is to NDSU like KC is to KU and MU. Thats were all of their alums live. Hell they brought 30k to see them play football against the Gophers.

Well to be honest, winning a national championship with 7 NBA level players on you roster is really more about recruiting than superior coaching.

Mario Chalmers
Darrell Arthur
Darnell Jackson

It's a combination. You have to get guys to your school who fit the system you want to run. Self couldn't win big with Roy's guys. It was like trying to haul some furniture (Self's style) with a Ferrari (Roy's style).

Although everyone conveniently forgets he hauled furniture all the way to overtime in the Elite 8 in that Ferrari.

That was a great ending to the season. #4 seed, no expectations... IIRC, that was the year they lost at home to Richmond. Pacific was the sexy Cinderella pick, then UAB was supposed to suffocate Kansas with Anderson's 40 minutes of Hell, but Kansas scored 100... and then they took Georgia Tech to OT, who went on to lose in the NC game.

I wouldn't mind a repeat of that year.... or last year, whatever. :)

A bunch of MUrons went over there posing as KU fans. It got them all riled up. It's really funny. KenPom gives them a 19% chance of winning.

This MU fan didn't go over there because I can't even read their damn board because it says I have to log-in....not happening.

I didn't see anybody from here over there. But their mods said they were MU fans. Maybe from Tigerboard or Antlers.

Go over there and look for yourself. The mods say they are MU guys. BTW, I don't care what you think.

All I got from the ND crowd is that they are pretty serious about fishing on frozen lakes, and they want to tear KU a new icehole.
