  1. So excited about this Game….Talk about a defining mid season Match-up ! Cats can Win this Game….

  2. I am not looking forward to this game….Jayhawks will be so up for this game….everyone of our boys need to show up, play hard and not be intimidated by the crowd and the game day atmosphere.

    1. Chance for great statement by UK or chance to get smacked by Kansas

  3. I think this game will still go as POY goes and possibly Lee behind him. I am not worried about the other guys. If POY can get 10-15 pts. this game and beyond and Lee can somehow get 8-10 this game and beyond we will be able to make a decent run into the Finals and beyond.

    1. Would be nice to count on Alex, but nothing in his DNA indicates that will happen

  4. Mixed signals from the Calmeister….he says ¨Skal learning to quit and thats a good thing¨? Goes on to tell us that he still isn´t in good shape and then goes on to say that Tai isn´t playing because he isn´t in shape…huh?? Cal…..at this late date in the season who is at fault for Skal not being in shape?..Go figure.
