I am already sick to my stomach. I am so nervous. I have been a KU fan since 1986, so I have seen 7 trips to the Final Four and only 1 Championship. I am READY for another.

I think the one thing that gives us a very, very, very slight edge is that we have a core of guys (CDR, Dorsey, Anderson, Dozier) who have won 11 NCAA tournament games over the past three years. They've been so confident, so motivated, and so damn good over the past three games that I feel good about Monday night.

You guys are like our evil twins from an alternate universe, though. Whoever wins is going to have earned the honor.

I really don't follow college hoops all that much until the tournament, but if I do have a rooting interest, it would be Kansas and UCLA.

If KU starts the game like they did last night-this one could be over early. That was some of the Best D I have ever seen. The way the second guy would come and help on drives to the basket-worked to perfection. I lost track of the steals and blocks. UNC looked like they were about to cry. No baskets allowed in 9 plus minutes-Amazing!!

It wasn't what Tennessee did, it was what Memphis did/didn't do. Memphis took in the neighborhood of 27 threes in that game. They can hit threes, but that's WAY too many attempts. They settled. They aren't shooting many threes at this point (12 or so a game), as they're absolutely attacking the basket now. Also, Rose was still deferring to a certain degree at that point. In fact, at the end of that game against the Vols, he started to take over, but it wasn't quite enough. Since then, he's really begun to assert himself, culminating in his recent amazing play.

I'm having trouble believing that KU will be able to stop Memphis. Westbrook is a great defender, and both Rose and CDR gave him fits. Collison, who's a quick and tough defender, was dominated. Should be interesting to watch.

Classic statement. LMAO

But, it's true... UNC was a mess on offense most of the first half because they weren't ready to play against Kansas' defense, and they were a mess on defense.

From what I've seen, Memphis isn't nearly as one-dimensional.

You are having a tough time believing that KU will be able to stop Memphis? Why is that? I'm having a hard time believing Memphis will be able to slow down Kansas. Not only does Kansas score more points per game than Memphis, they are third in the nation in field goal % defense, while allowing less points a game than Memphis too. O ya, by the way we held the top scoring offense to 66 points.

All this talk about KANSAS needing to slow down and stop Memphis is silly. Both teams play a fast paced style of basketball.

Sweet 16 vs Villanova:

Scottie Reynolds: 4 of 13 for 11pnts

Great 8 vs Davidson

Stephen Curry: 9 of 25 for 25 pnts

Final 4 vs North Carolina:

Tyler Hansgrough: 6 of 13 for 17 pnts
Ty Lawson: 2 of 8 for 9 pnts

Championship vs Memphis:

Derrick Rose: ?
Chris Douglas-Roberts: ?

What I really like about the Jayhawks in this run is the way they have really shook up the stars of the other teams, be it bad shooting nights or just overall uncomfortable-ness. Self has done an excellent job of sniffing out what the other team's tendancies are and how the Hawks tweak their defensive approach to counter it.

I don't think the teams Memphis has played this year, "show" at the permiter the way KU does, especially using their bigs. If that bothers the Memphis guards enough, I think our offensive post play puts the game in our favor. If Memphis is able to find the paint past the perimeter, then advantage Memphis.

Also, to state the obvious, Rush is the key. Not only because he'll draw CDR most of the time (and I think we actually might miss Stewart's size and defensive abilities to spell Rush here), but because I can't remember a game where when he had a good offensive output that we ever lost the game (15 or more points). If he mkes CDR work on defense the way the bigs made Hansbrough work last night, good things for KU!

Rock Chalk!

Very looking foward to this game; all during football season it was a way to connect to my son, visiting his grave and reliving the game with him, when KU won the Orange Bowl it was the first time I felt true joy since my son died that did not center on my wife and daughter.

Watching basketball this season has also helped to ease my constant suffering. My son's first day home from the hospital after his birth was spent in my arms introducing him to KU basketball watching KU v. S. Carolina. For KU to win the championship tomorrow would surpass even the Orange Bowl victory. Can't help but think my little man is looking down doing what he can to help KU keep the train rolling.

Good luck to your squad tonight, lads.

I don't see it as a close game. While Memphis has athletes and can defend as well as any team, they don't shoot the rock all that well. Also, Dorsey will be leaned on by three big men all night. Him staying out of foul trouble is imperative.

Lastly, Memphis shot lights out from the line in the semis. Very out of character for them.

KU wins by 15. (Sorry UPeanut)

I am very respectful of what Memphis brings, but I can't help wondering if KU wins, what the script will be.
Before the Davidson game, this team is on a roll, longest winning streak of active teams, phenom at the helm and sidekick who does all the right things, KU has their hands full.
After the Davidson game . . . [crickets] . . . well it was just little ol' Davidson.
Before the UNC game, Psycho T is God, best starters, best depth, best team in the land, KU has no chance.
After the UNC game . . . [crickets] . . . OK, UNC actually sucked and just managed to fool us by appearing not to suck all year.

DJay23
04-07-2008, 12:43 PM
Another thing I think we have going in our favor is the fact that Memphis' offense relies so much on passing the ball around through motion. They don't set a ton of screens (from what I've gathered), they'd rather get you lost from running in circles. UCLA, it was pointed out, has trouble with lateral speed on D, more of a straight line quickness. Kansas' guards are good at anticipating passes and shooting those gaps. On the other hand, too much anticipation sets up the back door beautifully.

The only person who needs to have a good game with on the ball D IMO is Rush. If Rush can stay in front of CDR and limit him to jumpers, and not allow him to the rack, that could be good for us. I say pick a guy and shut him down. Rose is a freak of nature. Do your best on him with Russell, Mario, and Sherron but concede that he'll get to the lane or shoot over his man. It is encouraging that when either gets to the lane we have a herd of shot blockers waiting.

I think we could get a lot of steals out of them if we are on top of our game. I'm not overconfident though. Those are tall orders. Memphis obviously hasn't played anyone who could do any of the above, because they keep winning. I guess we have to hope their shots are off and they come out expecting to win like UNC. A little of that will help.

I'm excited for the game, but not at all nervous. Not like I was in '03.

Lastly, Memphis shot lights out from the line in the semis. Very out of character for them.

KU wins by 15. (Sorry UPeanut)

WOW, Hope you are right ...... I don't have that feeling, I see a war, a fast paced war , who can strike fast and often. But props to ya anyway.:clap:

Must of been all the MU Tigger fans wanting a KU loss against UNC but somehow now they just found out that KU won the game. They are now hoping again with another ( Memphis ) Tigger team . Here's to the Tigger's string, once a Tigger, always a Tigger.KU over the Tiggers. :KU:

I think they'd complement each other well. The Heat has needed a ball-handling PG since Timmy still had knees. Wade needs help and can't be a one-man show. I'm all for someone else bringing the rock up the floor and dishing it to DWade.

It'd definitely be the run-n-gun with Rose-Wade-Marion-Haslem.

All of the bitching and moaning you did about the refs is hilarious, Coach. They SPOTTED you guys that lead with just two plays (over the back and "shooting" "foul" three point play), even disregarding the cheap foul calls against Dozier and Dorsey.

It's time for Rose, Taggart, and Dozier show up. I fully expect them to.

Great first half. If not for sloppy ball handling KU is up 12.

Need more of the same w/ better ball handling this half. :D

I think he was doing a much better job of passing out of it the last few minutes. What makes Kansas' defense so great is that they anticipate that pass out, too. That last steal by Chalmers is a great example. However, they did fail a couple of times to give Memphis a couple of quick 3s. Uggghhhh. All bitching aside, it has been a very good game despite he shaky start by KU.

And they spotted you 4 points from the obvious missed traveling calls. Big deal.

Even that, this officating crew sucks, one way or another.

You know, if you can tell your big guys to "fundamentally" block out somebody, the score would be 32-32 all.

Of course, your freshman stud, for whatever reason, thought eating starburst and gummie bears in the morning seemed a great idea.

Brilliant. :rolleyes: Now he's puking and shitting liquid.

Good 1st half Jayhawks ....... KU taking it to the paint , making Memphis defend inside.

Shutting down Rose is hugh so far, wonder how much of it is the flu ? CDR is a beast, you can't defend his 1 step dribble, faid away shot, have to find a way to collaspe on him when has the ball.

Fatigue is setting up in the Memphis big boys as well..........

Going to be a bruising 2nd half, just like a heavyweight bout.

Go KU :KU:

From todays KANSAN:

Darnell Jackson doesn’t expect that attitude to change tonight even though they’re going to face their toughest challenge of the season. To keep that mind-set, the team has been huddling up before the last few games and spreading the same message.
“We just say ‘let your nuts hang,’” Jackson said. “Just let them hang. Just have fun because this is it for most of the guys, and we’re just having fun with it.”
Never will the Jayhawks need to relax more than tonight. They’ve been waiting for this game since the beginning of the season, since they arrived at Kansas. They can’t get too scared or too tight or allow Memphis to run past them.
They’ll remember this game forever and want to make it a good memory.
“This is probably the game I’m going to show my kids for the rest of my life,” Robinson said.

If you take the starters and put them out there for 40mins, Memphis can run with anyone. When you take KU's depth, constantly sub in fresh guys, and run, run, run... Memphis isn't deep enough to keep up.
And that's why Memphis is going to lose.

And that's true. But it's the big game, and most people expect it to be decently officated game.

Unfortunately, it's not up to par.

Actually, you are overestimating what "par" is. As pathetic as the officiating has been in this tournament, I'd say the refs of this game have cleared that very low bar to be "above average".

I disagree. This crew is considered by many fans, to be the worst crew. And there were obvious missed calls for both teams that they should had called, and others that they DID call, should have NOT called.

Either way, they want in the action, they're gonna control the game, one way or another, and that sucks.

Let the kids play.

If not foul out, I'll also settle for wearing them the f*** out with our rotation.

Thats one of the reasons this game is going Kansas way.

They can't play as aggressive as they would like.
