#1149094 - 03/10/10 05:33 PM Mary Ann or Ginger? The 1st Darren or the 2nd?

Tyshawn and Russ Rob are two completely different players. Russell Robinson was always in control, but Tyshawn is more of a scorer and fearless. Still, I miss Russells composure. Hard choice, but Id prefer the 08 Russell over 10 Tyshon.

Neither Brady nor Tyrell compare to Mario Chalmers. Mario was a scorer too hard for opponents to guard. Hands down: Mario.

Darrell Arthur was another stud. But, Marcus Morris and his brother have an accurate three point shot. Marcus is more fluid than Darrell. I chose Marcus over Darrell.

We still love Darnell Jackson. Cole is an All-American. Id go with Cole over good ole Darnell.

Xavier is incredible for a freshman. So was Brandon Rush. Brandon was an upperclassman in 08. Teams tried double teaming Brandon. And, Brandon also became a monster defender. Id choose Brandon over X.

The 08 Sherron was a spark plug dogged by HCBS. The 10 Sherron is the teams leader and HCBS has a man crush on him. The 10 Sherron is better than the 08 Sherron.

HCBS is more relaxed in 10 than 08. Perhaps HCBS is a better coach than he was in 08, if thats even possible. Id take the 10 Bill over the 08 Bill.

The first Darren was definitely better than the second Darren.

Ginger and Mary Ann are a toss up. Both have their strong points, but I choose Mary Ann over Ginger because Mary Ann was a Kansas farm girl from Wellington.

All things considered, Id take the 10 team over the 08 team.

Flawed comparisons. Should be

Mario - Sherron
Russ - Tyshawn
Brandon - Xavier
Shady - Marcus
Darnell - Cole

Sherron - Ty/Brady
Sasha - Kieff

And, for what it's worth, I take.

Mario
Tyshawn
Brandon
PUSH
Cole

Sherron (08)
Sasha

Only Russ/Ty is all that close, in my opinion, other than Shady/Marcus (obviously).

Mario
Russ
Brandon
Shady
Cole

Sherron
Sasha

The way the 08 could run, as well as play D, is a win/sin. If you want to put Marcus in for Shady, I don't have a problem with that. I like how Sasha could run & jump, even though DJ could run too.

I was always a "Ginger" fan.

You must prefer style over substance, Ginger over Mary Ann -the '08 team over the '10.

But if a man's heart is through his stomach, remember Mary Ann made the best coconut pies on the island.

I guess you guys are comparing starters in the NCAA tournament, but wasn't Sasha Kaun our starter for most of the regular season in '08? I seem to remember that Coach Self switched Kaun and Jackson late in the season.

O'kay, Ginger gets one-half of a vote and Mary Ann gets one-half.

Which Jayhawk team would win the game, the '08 or the '10?

Toss-up. If they played a thousand times, neither would reach 600 wins.

Is this question really debateable? We all know it's Mary Ann.

i think the 08 team is better overall talent-wise (at least to the 8th man). but i also believe that the top teams this year are not as talented as the other final 3 in 08.

I think this is yet another situation where we just don't know how good this '10 team really is. Where they are currently, I would give a slight edge, like maybe 3 or 4 points, to the '08 team.

But I think if this team can reach their potential, they would be slightly above the '08 team, probably 3 or 4 points again or something like that.

It's really hard to say for me, that '08 team really does hold a special place in my heart ya know, loved those guys.

Don't think this can be answered at this point because I believe this '10 team still has yet to have all five guys on the court playing their best ball at the same time. We've seen two or three guys have great games or pick up the slack while two or three others were having an off day, but not everyone in synch and really feeling it in harmony. Until this team AS A TEAM is firing on all cylinders, we won't know. Hope we find out by the big dance.

I take the 10 team .. because thats the only one playing ... Do they have the heart to get to the Ring .. only time will tell.. I pray so... but we must be more consistent then we have been of late. We must play with more killer desire then we have demonstrated this year. Lastly we need to win the two games we won't play our best. Every team usually has two of the six games that they don't play or shoot there best.

If you are using Fish's comparisons, why are you all taking '08 Mario over '10 Sherron? And its not that close?
Unbelievable!

Thank you, Jayhawk02. I always get the two towns mixed up in my mind, growing up in a different part of the state.

There are some great images of Ginger and Mary Ann in Google. Included is a more recent goofy, smiling Mary Ann mug shot when she was arrested for pot. This blew my comparison been Sasha and Mary Ann. Ginger's personality is more like Mario and Darrell.
