I know there's a lot of hate for Self...plus the Level 1s..and what Drew took over .but damn..Drew could win 350 in a row and still his record would be behind Self

Apparently to this point, still no news on Love's status for this game (other than I see him listed as an available bench player above if that means anything) - (?).

Don't let the toupee fool you, Self is 8 years older and has close to a decade as HC over Drew. Their records from 2003 (574-459) not all that far apart considering the Marianas trench BU was climbing out of.

Great Austin Sacks feature on CGD: Jay Bilas did his 94 feet bit with Austin and at the end the whole team was there when Jay announced that Austin was now on scholarship.

Loved the Austin Sacks piece. That was great.

If you looked in the background closely, it also basically answered the Langston Love "game time" decision question.

KU seems awfully confident McCullar is out. That definitely helps us as he's an elite defender.
That said. Will have to play lights out and need sone luck going our way today. Anywho, Go bears!

Fran giving props to Bears during broadcast of Cinci vs UH game. Said they'll keep getting better and by March, watch out.

Not a good start.

We look frazzled.

Love being out negates at least half or more of the impact of that.

Hard to make up a double digit deficit at Phog. Hope we close this gap fast.

Here we go, wwe on our end, touch fouls on their end.
Our vibrations were getting nasty. But why? I was puzzled, frustrated... Had we deteriorated to the level of dumb beasts?

No one does a better job of running us off 3pt line than Self.

Death taxes and ass whipping at KU… I'm convinced they could sit every starter and they'd still destroy us

What a disastrous effort to start this one. Just leave at halftime. We're about to get our ass kicked.
