Oh my God….not again

Last season’s Bucknell – yes now a verb in my book – was attributed to the player’s health and an overall lack of continuity. The 06 Jayhawks seem to have reversed all of these and Bill Self’s team was poised to take “his team” for a fun ride.

Alas, another BU spoiled the season. As disappointed as I am I know that losses like Bucknell and Bradley are what make the tournament the event that it is. And with more parity will come more heartbreaking losses. Congrats to both Bradley and Bill Self as each had amazing seasons

Heading to the wine country today to forget basketball, work, and everything else for a while. And yes, I’ll resist temptation to begin thinking about next season….even with quotes like:

“Yes, I’m back next year. I can’t go out like this,” Rush said after scoring nine points off 4-of-14 shooting in the Jayhawks’ 77-73 first-round NCAA Tournament loss to Bradley in The Palace of Auburn Hills. “I was still undecided at the time of the game. Now I’m sure I’m coming back next year.”

Rush said he made the decision after looking at his teammates in the losing locker room.

and this from Julian Wright:

We want to remember this feeling and prepare twice as hard for next year. Hit weights, everything that helps the team. We’ve got to look at tape, do whatever it takes to get better.”

Until next year…here is one final Rock Chalk

    So the last few minutes of last night’s basketball was apparently NOT exciting enough for you to write a new blog entry? Take your pick: UCLA/Gonz OR WVU/Texas had the Tweak household in a roar. C’mon Bake… dontcha got game?
