    Amen. Three missed thunder-dumbs. Say they made just 2 of these 3 with more conventional dunks. 4 points, much more pressure on UK in last 3 minutes.

    Seriously. Taylor makes more stupid plays than anybody I can recall.

    Hats off to Kansas. They could have folded and didn't. Just could not put the ball in the hole... Sigh..

    Too many mistakes by Kansas. Kentucky was definitely beatable tonight. But Kansas did what they always seem to do (commit dumb mistakes). Kentucky was clearly the more talented team. But Kansas's defense was good enough tonight for them to win. Their offense (and Kentucky's shotblocking didn't help) wasn't.

    The bad news? Kentucky won.

    The good news? I ended up winning one bracket pool and coming in 2nd on the DBR pool. Not too shabby.

    Turnovers, thunderdumbs (Copyrighted by my buddy Gumbomop), lack of outside shooting, and they still had a chance with 2 mins to go..


    Like Native, I have no issue with this group of Kentucky kids. They had a great year. Well done.

    My only solace is knowing the Ol Roy is shedding tears for his beloved Jayhawks. Losing twice in the same tournament has to hurt.

    Eh, it sucks... but it was inevitable, especially when UNC had all their injuries and Syracuse lost Fab Melo. I can't think of another team that had a chance to beat UK without them having an off night. Kentucky's worst enemy in this tournament seemed to be boredom and complacency.

    I think OSU would have given them fits. Like every other team KU played, UK folded tonight, the lead was just too big. That said, Craft gives Teague fits, and Davis would have had to cover Sullinger straight up and not come over the top like he did on T-Rob. Thomas would have provided the mismatch again but he was in foul trouble vs KU but the game would have probably come down to whether Buford could play like he did against Duke in December.

    I feel like this team had a higher overall character... Cousins, as we've seen, is a headcase.

    Hope Cal remembers how heavy the trophy is, because it will likely be taken away in a few years.

    After seeing that Ky team play basketball maybe Duke gives a 25 per cent discount to all donors!

    OSU would have given them some trouble, but it would have really depended on Buford and Thomas showing up.

    I completely agree but apart from UNC with KM, OSU was up there with teams that could compete with UK talent wise. There is a reason why Self won COY and its b/c his team overachieved, that said, I don't think the Jayhawks were best suited to give UK the best game.

    Why? Huge Baylor fan? :-P

    Honestly, it would take an upset of epic proportions to take down Griner. That or getting her ejected again.
