Re: CSTV: Kansas/Creighton 6.30 TONIGHT - 04/14/09 02:20 PM

Is there any bar/restaurant in Lawrence that carries CSTV so that I could watch it? I know I don't have it as part of my Sunflower package at home.

Hi mdfraz,

I know some fans are getting together at Biggs BBQ on Iowa. I hope to make it as well.

Stolen base. Safe at second.

Creighton coach on Omaha sports jabber show this afternoon suggested KU wasn't aggressive, or as aggressive as other teams CU has seen.

End of the top of the first. Left at second.

Red is perfectly acceptable against K-State, Kentucky, Carolina and Duke ...

I guess the Creighton BLUEjays can be added to that list as well.

KU ended the bottom of the 6th with quite a double play. Short dove and caught a grounder close to the 2nd base side of 2nd, flipped it to the 2nd baseman, then on to 1st.

Re: Kansas/Creighton game thread - 04/14/09 10:36 PM

Just returned from Rosenblatt where I got my first look at the Hawks this season. We really could have pounded Creighton, but two miscues in the 7th made this a close game.

Even though many of these guys were playing here for the first time, thought that the team played loose for the most part. I especially was impressed by their plate discipline. Good win for us over a solid Creighton team.

The crowd was about 50% KU which was awesome!

An added bonus was that I tought my 3year old son the "hey batter batter batter" chant when Creighton was up to bat. Had a blast.

Wow, love this open game thread. I was at Biggs BBQ. About a dozen KU baseball fans were down there watching the game. Nice road with for the Hawks. KU has won three straight on the road now. Creighton is not a bad team at all. Another good win and the Hawks keep marching on.
