Every time we make a shot, the CBS announcer sounds disappointed. Makes a 'hmmpf' sound.

missed foul calls against kansas in three straight possessions... going to be a long afternoon if we can't get the clear ones called.

Big shock. When you go to the Phog you have to not only beat Kansas but you have to beat the refs And the crowd.

Geez vital how in the world do you miss that??
Illinois Bear

Missing point blank layups - not gonna win with that effort. Jesus Vital.

Dunk it Vital.

vital misses more point blank, uncontested shots than one 6 foot 7 inch human should. still love him but dang dude.

Getting sloppy at the Baylor end of the court.

Come on Butler

It's hard to watch this. Possession and fouls calls all one way
Johnny Bear

In what is becoming a pattern, looking great on the defensive end & after a decent start, now looking like garbage on the offensive end. We aren't going to win at the Phog without playing well on both ends.
CHP Bear

I'm thinking if we don't shoot 45% from the 3 line we're in trouble. Just feel KU will give us more 3 looks and plug the middle.
Illinois Bear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Butler FINALLY!!
Johnny Bear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
A lot of game left, but so far for the third game in a row Butler is hurting a lot more than he's helping

For anyone who doesn't see the value or role of Thamba, this is it. Gotta have a big who can shove an opposing big around for a few minutes when the rest of your lineup is small.

What has happened to our outside shooting the past few games?

Stupid shot Macio. C'mon. Patience.

This game is a forgone conclusion. Why even play it when it's 5 v. 8?

It's MIA. Clark's lack of ability to contribute at this point is a killer in this type of a game.

Can we get one rebound at the offensive end?

no movement. poor passes. poor cuts. standing around. recipe for offensive disaster coming to fruition right now. we usually do this second half not first!
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Not getting calls at Phog is a foregone conclusion. Not hitting open outside shots is our fault, not their's.

Quick fouls called on us. Go figure.

Somehow a foul on Freddie
Johnny Bear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I hate to keep calling him out because I know he's a great kid, but Butler Especially has been worthless beyond the three-point line since the start of conference.
CHP Bear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
4-1 fouls favor KU 7 to go in 1st. Any takers for KU in bonus before 2 minute mark?

The shaved head ref is making ever call for KU
