    I just don’t think it’s common knowledge like you think it might be. I’ve never associated the SEC with bad officiating.

    Fair enough, but I don’t think you get the experience or the exposure that our teams do on a nightly basis. Like i mentioned, there is an entire thread with multiple SEC teams chiming in telling you the same thing I am. It has nothing to do with UK winning or losing, just the quality of the play we can’t stand.

    Ehh, I don't really put much stock into what fans around here have to say when they complain about officials. If you pay attention you'll see that all fans from all schools do it and the football guys might even be worse. I'd say most people posting on national boards are a little bit more diehard than the average fan and when you're diehard you take things personally in regards to your program. It's not exactly the most reliable place to find what actual fans think because there's a higher concentration of homers around, ya know?

    I’m just saying man, if you watched SEC games twice a week I wouldn’t have to explain anything.

    I'd rather be an Indiana fan than have to watch 2 SEC games a week.

    That means that you have never watched SEC basketball.

    Your fanbase takes the cake. You guys never lose a game, it’s always the refs. It’s not just two of you guys either, it’s practically every fan. I took a peek at rafters for the first time in years and wow, so many threads solely about refs. Weird. I like watching games and not crying about refs.

    the same can be said about your fanbase


    in those thread you speak of they are not complaining about lopsided officiating
    they are complaining about 50+ fouls a game called and how it takes the flow away for both teams
    but we both know the truth does not fit your agenda

    No not really it’s not really comparable at all. Just admit you guys whine about the refs a lot. It’s not difficult.

    There’s a reason other people are poking fun at you guys for constantly crying about the refs.

    Two bad OOC losses to Miami and Missouri take this team from what should be a ~4 seed to an 8 seed. I still think we're likely a 6 seed.

    We have 11 top half quad 1 road games - the most in the country. We have 4 top half quad 1 road wins - tied for the most in the country with the opportunity to win our 5th tonight. Our quad 2 games are all top half.

    LSU is 4 spots higher than us and being predicted as a 7. Look at their resume:

    One of the things that I think has hurt KU on and off over the last decade...and Big 12 teams in general...is Big 12 officiating. Very foul happy at times leading to a lot of free throws and not giving guys an opportunity to practice playing through contact. Run into a tournament game when you aren’t getting the calls that you’re used to and splat...either dead in the water or a scare that shouldn’t be.

    I hope to God that officials swallow their whistles in KU's tourney games. That's my nightmare scenario. An officiating crew that is calling everything and turning it into a free throw contest between Azubuike and a bunch of guards that shoot 90% .

    I have heard Arkansas fans especially when they had Mike Anderson really complain about the officiating in the SEC

    Mizzou fans have said they wish they played basketball in the Big 12 because the officiating is that bad.

    Any team that can cook it from 3 is probably everybody's nightmare.

    can you not see what was in bold? you think any team with a big will give Kansas problems? that is the last thing self is worried about.

    WVU?
    They matched up better with Kansas in the Big 12 this year.
    Was because of their size.

    So teams who have the bigs to play with Kansas could potentially give you problems.

    kansas has the size to matchup with anyone.
    The team that can beat self is the team that gets hot from behind the arc.

    It
    Not disagreeing that you have the best big in the country
    Point is you need someone who can guard him.

    To beat Kansas you must have size.
