...I'm going to call BS. Crap like the above reminds me of football fans who say nonsense like, "I don't care what we do in conference as long as we beat Iowa." If people really had one wish from the basketball gods, they would want ISU to lose their last 3 regular season games in order to guarantee 1 win in the conference tourney just to set up a rematch against KU? Call me crazy, but I take an NCAA tourney berth over revenge every day of the week.
You're reading things that aren't there. Nowhere did I say that I would take 3 ISU losses in order to get another shot at KU. Nowhere did I say I'd rather pass up the NCAA tourney. Chill out and try Hooked on Phonics.
I know I am looking way ahead, but screw it, we don't have another game until Saturday.
I have seen around here that it is extremely likely for ISU to play in the 4-5 game on Thursday of the conference tournament. KU also has the inside track for the 1 seed.
If there is a year for us to finally win a game in KC, Dear Lord, please let this be it. A win in the 4-5 game sets us up for a third shot at these guys in the conference tournament semifinal on Friday. I can't even begin the image the kind of rage that this team would have in getting another shot at the Jayhawks. ISU might shoot 75% from behind the arc.
So, this is my prayer to the basketball gods, that if I can only guarantee one more win this season, I choose ISU's first game in the conference tournament so that we can see them go on to finally finish against the Jayhawks and advance to play for a conference title. Amen.
Thank you for posting what I was thinking. I can't wait to get my tickets. Money is not a factor in this.
