Props to you Jayhawk1952 for being a KU fan for 63 years. I can't match that. Myself started watching KU basketball in 1965 at the ripe old age of 7.

Thanks for the props. You started younger than I did, age 12. So maybe you can pass me some day in total years of being a fan. But be aware, I am shooting for reaching 90+. My dad died at age 94 and his sister at 98. Who knows, perhaps I might reach 80 years or more as a fan!

Why not?

Solely Bill Self's fault then? Ok, I'll accept that.

Topic "The First To Go 40-0" is a ridiculously large set up to fail for a team that still has three openings to fill for 2016-7. Can't we mainly enjoy another successful season with Bill Self/staff coaching and let the achievements come based upon his great efforts?

And I earlier thought the JW success level definition was unrealistic!

Perhaps you don't understand what I said. I didn't predict a 40-0 record for next year. I only shared it as a dream.

I did point out that with some really good veterans returning, with some really good talent coming in, and I add that we have some returnees who didn't play a great deal but have some great potential, we are going to have a really good team next year no matter who fills the remaining scholarships. Those "unknowns" can make us even better but not worse. And I do point out SOME of the pit falls.

Unlike a number of posters on this site, I have totally enjoyed this past season. But it is over. It is time to look forward to next year, as I always do no matter what our past season has been like.

Perhaps you are fearful of jinxing the team for next year. There is so such thing as jinxing a team or even a player by what you say, not even at the free throw line as some commentators often refer to when calling a game.

So I don't believe that your statement, "'The First To Go 40-0'" is a ridiculously large set up to fail for a team that still has three openings to fill for 2016-17," has any validity. Our Jayhawks might do it however slim the possibility is and dreaming about it in no way sets them up for a "ridiculously large set up to fail.

I believe our Hawks are going to have a great season next year whether or not they go 40-0! The potential for them to be a great team is very real. Hey, and if they're not, there's always the next year. smile

My comments regarding the topic NAME wasn't meant to be a criticism of your dream comments. Simply a comparison of posters unrealistic actual ideas. Yes you dreamed that but for example JW definition of success is very narrow. So is 40-0. Nothing but being realistic about actual success ideas for 2016-7. And my comments are still very valid. Don't think I said one word against you and your dream.

I don't think that saying, "Our Jayhawks might do it however slim the possibility is and dreaming about it," is "unrealistic." It is going to happen some year. So suggesting it MIGHT be KU next year, however slim the possibility is, is not unrealistic. Improbable, yes, unrealistic, no. And I don't believe I ever stated 40-0 as my measure of success. That would be extremely successful, but it isn't my measure of success. Our recent season fits my measure of success. It wasn't as successful as I had hoped, but it was successful.

I would too. But adding a national championship would be even better! That's including # 13, something that I'd really like us to achieve.

1952, you are missing my points completely. So I will go along with this. 40-0 is not realistic but moderate perfection. Ok? Also not my definition of what you said at all.

No dream is unrealistic btw.

How would you define complete perfection?
