Tell me why I should watch the 2nd half?

The Jayhawks have not shown up, why should we?

Maybe we should ask who these guys are, and what have they done with the real Jayhawks?

I have never seen such a Jekyll-Hyde team in my memory.

Throw in the announcers and the officials (after the lengthy review on Brannen's foul, Frank gets hit in the head twice, but no review for Flagrant 1; Diallo gets clobbered on the last KU possession but no foul being called), and I'm not much feeling like watching the last 20.

Yeah, hard to argue with that kind of logic.

But as much as I'm a fan of Stevenson, I'm not a fan of our guys playing like schizos. Just glad Self & Co found the guys that were supposed to be playing and brought them out in the second half instead of those clowns that played in the first.

Because a game has 2 halves for a reason.

Both of us have been watching basketball for decades and you know full well that there have been hundreds of games like this one. I attended the game at Allen when Paul Pierce's jersey was retired, and we blew out Arizona in the first half. Killed them. They destroyed us in the 2nd half. Destroyed us. Horrible game to watch, and probably worse game to play. Remember the Texas game, the day after Thomas Robinson's mother died? And the UCLA game when we were down by over 20 at the half, and simply ran them out of the fieldhouse in the 2nd half? It happens. And it happens far too often to get upset. These guys are human, and this is what happens to humans. Hubris, gas, girlfriends, you know the litany of stuff that affects 20 somethings.

And that is why games have 2 halves.
