Rohan, no post about the ass whooping KU gave us today? Or the ridiculous oop we tried with two minutes left that got stuffed by the rim..
Again, I don't want this to come off like a biased KU take, but this game was more of an indication of where I think both teams really are. I didn't think it would be THAT bad, but I thought KU would handle them pretty easy. In Columbia, KU turned the ball over 25 times and Collins had like 9 points. If that happened every game, KU would have lost at least 10 games by now.
The Big 12 is weak this year. I think MU caught a break with the schedule and have a good coach. We'll see if he bolts for the SEC in the summer. KU has actually surprised me as well. Aldrich was a goofy ass freshman white boy last year prior to the North Carolina game in the final four. Then he went out and made Hansbrough his bitch. He should come back next year, but I doubt he stays for his senior season.
My prediction? MU and KU both lose in the sweet 16. This year. Another year of seasoning, and another great class that's coming in, KU is going to be badfreakinass again in 2010. I'm saying that banking on Collins skipping his senior year. If he comes back, oh shit.
By the way, if Griffin would have played last week, I think KU would have lost that game by 15. Dude is a freakin beast.
