    • Thanks CJ. The 50's were a great decade. As you say, sad that KU didn't get back-to-back NC's in 52 & 53. Believe you shorted each team 1 point in the 57 score - that was a heartbreaker for sure. So was 97. Phog's 10-3 NCAA tourney record is great, even though 1 of the wins was a consolation...

    • Really too bad for Wade if he can't play, as a senior. He seems like a really good kid. Plays hard, clean and without silly fanfare. But, I sure don't want to hear from the KSt fans losing and then complaining about not having him and "what if" scenarios. There's plenty of "what ifs" to go...

Some Perspective on Being a Fan

"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

--Theodore Roosevelt
