Concur on the "X factor contributor," Senex

February 24, 2012 11:31AM
I think that's spot on, and was wondering myself today who that might be. My first thoughts went to T-Rel, and then to Young as well (Scouts' honor), so we're on the same page there. T-Rel is a KC kid, and he totally gets this one. I think he'll bring it big-time tomorrow, and, as you said, we'll perhaps get some crucial contribution (even just a few solid possessions) from Young.

It sure would be nice to see Conner get hot tomorrow also, since it's at home and he has to offset his defensive liabilities (which are more likely to be in play against Fizzou, with their speed and athleticism at the guard spot).

One other X factor, of course, is how the zebras choose to call this game. Will they call it evenly on both ends, where the aggressive use of hands and hacks by Fizzou on defense are called out (as they were on Tuesday against the Kitties)? If they call out KU's bigs on charges and blocks, will they do the same when Fizzou players penetrate and slide over to get under our penetrators? Or will they lean toward calling out KU's bigger players over Misery's smalls, allow for Moore and others to flop and get drama-induced charge calls, and give a much better FT-shooting Tigger team the decided edge in both foul trouble and trips to the charity stripe? If we are blowing them out, as Senex as called it, it's less of a factor. But if the game is tight, it's huge, as we all reluctantly witnessed a few weeks ago...

  Haith and the team on ignoring the atmosphere

  Yep. If nothing else, the guys do *not* want...

  That's a tricky sentiment, though...
