I wish someone would have roused the Sleeping Giant before the games in Lubbock and Austin.
You couldn't be more right my man. After going to several KU boards after the game, I found a couple threads where they were relishing & making fun of just how much they made Little Hoiberg cry. That's a damn shame man he's just a kid and didn't want to see his daddy lose. They're probably the same type of people who would mock a mentally handicapped person in a wheelchair too. Then they were making rude comments about how hot Fred's wife is and what they'd like to do to her sexually. So yeah, I would say they may have become our new public enemy #1 until the Hawkeyes get relevant again.
I think KU and Self should be worried. Hoiberg, in Year 3, with 3 starting transfers, 1 out of position SF playing PF and a freshman almost swept KU if 2 miracles didn't take place. Once Fred starts getting his guys(next year to me is Year 1 of Fred recruits) things will only be getting better.
We've beaten them 2 times this season.
They can laugh about little Hoiberg all they want. One day, he'll be raining 3's on their ***** and will get the last laugh.
Besides, KU has a track around their football field. :laugh:
I've always hated them, always will, but I pretty much hate every other team in the conference for one thing or another. Okay, not TCU thus far, but they'll have a WV moment sometime and I can nurture that burning coal into a furnace of hatred.
Feels good. ;)
To me guys like Niang, SDW, Okoro, Thomas, Monte, and the JC guys are the players Fred wants to build with and on. But my main point is that Hoiberg has been able to use the transfers and the guys left from McD to challenge KU in the last 2 years. Just think what he can do once he really has his plan in motion.
Royce was one and done like a HS player could be. We had Babb McGee and Booker playing for a few years. It's not a whole lot different. I understand the point with like Lucious and Allen.. But you can't expect many for year starters. ESPECIALLY if we do become a giant.
i see our rivalry with kansas as being a cincinatti-xavier typer rivalry
Hoiberg was obviously working toward that anyhow. I think the sleeping giant they woke up is this year's team. I'm really excited for this postseason.
Iowa got mad again and it didn't help them any. I'm all for being mad but until we beat them I done give a ****. KU isn't just going away.
