The KUAD Game Day Notes: KU @TCU notes that "Kansas started four freshmen against Oklahoma State (2/9) for only the second time in the Bill Self era."

But it does not tell us when the FIRST and only other time was. (Note that I don't think there will be a recurrence tonight -- I think Mitch will start with Dedric, Ochai, Devon and Quentin.)

So when was the first time?

Correct. December 10, 2013 against Florida in Gainesville.
Lost that one, though 67-61.

By the way, I was wrong, Mitch did not start tonight.

For the second game in a row Big Dave McCormack (please note it's McCormack, not McCormick) got the starting nod as KU started 4 freshmen for just the third time in Self's tenure..

This tickled something deep in the ol' noggin'... Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it Mitch that last year said (or HCBS said about him) he did better coming off the bench because it gave him a chance to see what the opponent was doing?

Or was that Landen Lucas, and my memory wires are crossed?

Think Big Dave will be another fave before he’s through!

I think Wheaty is partial to “the Bigs.” Although I love those little water bugs skittering around the perimeter, too.

Love them Jayhawks!

Now Play some ball.

A absolutely agree WHeaty. I think Big Dave is going to be special before all is said and done.

Don't worry about the mules, just load the wagon!!
