Always worried about our free throw %. 

Go Bucks!

so far so good, sans the last few seconds of the first half.

I appreciate that the zebras are (rightly) calling Kansas on the charge fouls.

But, I think we've been called for 7 fouls in the first half -- and not one of them seemed like a good hard foul. They were all "ticky-tacky"/even-up-the-game kind of calls

Wait. Wat is happening... Did we just forget how to shoot AND defend?

C'mon man, I'm frustrated as hell but can we avoid anything of a derogatory nature? I'm all for saying fuck those jayhawks though.

What the HELL were we doing in the second half? We GAVE them the game.

Great game, shitty ending with the way the refs talking to the players while the other ref lets them inbounds.

Oh well, they went a hell of a lot further than I expected in the tourney.

Gotta say Buford left it all on the court tonight... and as for Sully and Thomas all I can say is I hope you have fun in the NBA

Great job sully and DT.  You both laid an egg.  Enjoy the NBA

Absolutely shut it down. Quit. Sad. All-in-all...nice run. Thank you and goodbye, Sully, Buford and Thomas. 

 

In the end... Izzo > Matta (just being honest).

 

Wake me in September. Yay football.

I would say they quit.

go bucks

I can't think of any coach I wouldn't say Izzo> .  Dude is probably the best in the business.

I am a bit disappointed, but hell of a run. Now into the sports abyss until August. I will spend the my time fishing until football resumes.

go bucks

It was a rough end, but guys, they made the Final Four.  How many of us thought in February that we could pull that off?  I'm disappointed that they won't be playing on Monday, but this was a great team, and a ton of fun to watch when they were clicking.  Hopefully DT and Sully will have been tantalized by the near-championship and decide to come back: Sullinger, Thomas, Smith, Craft, and Ravenel/Williams would be an amazing lineup to field next season.

Whidbey whipped Sully.  NBA defenders just might be an upgrade.  Good luck with that.

It's safe to say we're going to need a recruiting update from Alex on Monday to ease the burn.

Paul's picture

Buford and Craft played hard. Feel bad for them,but Kansas just did us a huge favor,Kentucky would've completely wasted Sullinger. Like I said, onto Football.

I agree UK would have dominated Sullinger and the rest of the team. We saved face by losing by 2 in a final four game rather than getting blown out by 20 plus in the title game i.e. 2006 and 2007 football.

^ Exactly, the loss stings however I'm still proud of this team.
