during this time of Coronavirus I have personally spent some time watching KU's old games. Might as well, as we don't have March Madness we can replicate it somehow.

Just finished watching KU vs. Villanova part 1 2016 Elite 8 start to finish.

Very underrated game back and forth. Great team we had. Couple of reflections from that game.
1. Landon Lucas wasn't so bad. He was a good player actually. I admit it.
2. Carlton Bragg if he hadn't had those incidents at KU, could have been a great player for us. Sad, and I hope he gets some help.
3. Perry was a huge letdown in that game.
4. Wayne Selden was a special player.

What games will you all watch during this time? if any.

I'll probably watch KU vs. Michigan next 2013. It is one of the few KU games I have never actually watched before.

yes. only got myself to watch the first half of that one. Today I watched Kansas vs Georgia tech 2004 regional in St. Louis. Great game even though we lost.

I'm going to brainstorm another one.

Can't stand to watch great games that we lost. It's hard enough to watch them when they happen. Would rather relive the glory of winning.

i like watching great players from KU's past and great games. It hurts to watch KU lose it is very painful no doubt. However still good memories. Hearing the KU faithful roar back when we took GT to overtime gave me chills. I'm now going to finish the 2nd half of KU vs. Mich 2013.

Actually the biggest mistake in that game was from Self. He pulled a super hot shooting McLemore out at the 8 minute mark after he committed his 3rd foul . Doubt if he picks up another two. Oh well definitely a all time choker...

yeah, the most frustrating part was I feel they could have run the clock down a bit for the 2013 game. If trey clinks that shot KU probably goes to win the national title.

Watched VCU game 2011 first part of the first half. so upset i stoped watching after 10 mins of game time. they were a hard matchup for us and we couldn't shoot a 3 to save our lives. You go up 6 just to turn it into a 10 point deficit.

I watched episode 1. It was fun watching us beat Duke in OT again. Self's breakdown was interesting. Forgot what a great game Malik Newman had.

BTW, there was something about Grayson Allen's face that made me want to slap him every time I saw him.

agreed. poetic justice he missed that shot. hated that guy.

On this day, April 7th 2008, the shot happened and Mario carried us to the national championship. one of the best days ever!

I believe greater moments are ahead for KU! Rock Chalk Jayhawk guys.
