Still don’t like Scott Drew, but congratulations to to Baylor. What a performance by that team, they are an absolute matchup nightmare. Kansas has a rival, and its now up to Self and company to step up their game.

1.283 PPP against a great Gonzaga team. An pure offensive clinic. Heck even Gonzaga had 1.045 PPP. Two great
Great offensive teams.

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

Baylor played great offensively, but their defense stepped up and let them gain that separation. Ok 2021 is done, how many days to Late Night?

I echo the "not a Scott Drew fan" and congrats to Baylor. But I'm going to go with the "we were one of two to beat the champs" this year. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Rock Chalk!

This is NCAA titles only, because technically KU has 5 titles.

The operative word being "technically".

The Helms titles were awarded, no championship game was played because there was none to be played.

I totally agree with hanging the banners and including them when we talk KANSAS national titles (as you can see in every ATWP post I make with the KU OBJECTIVES at the bottom of each post). I even think we should hang a banner honoring the 2020 team (again, see the bottom of my ATWP posts).

But they are not the same as NCAA Tournament titles, and frankly we are the only ones that care about or COUNT anything else.

I see posters and t-shirts that not only do not note that the 1922 and 1923 titles are not NCAA titles, but actually are crafted to imply that they are, and that is lying. It would be one thing if the NCAA went back and recognized all the mythical national champions from before 1939 for the titles they were awarded. At least then we could point to that NCAA recognition in support of our including them.

Until that day, and probably even after it if it ever comes to pass, NOBODY outside Jayhawk Nation looks at any NC but the NCAA Tournament title, so I keep it to titles NO ONE ELSE CAN ARGUE about.

Apples to apples, friend.
