This one's for Quin

Full story: Topix.net Newswire

COLUMBIA — Thomas Gardner has nothing against Melvin Watkins, the acting head basketball coach who will lead Missouri into Kansas this afternoon. But Gardner will be playing for Quin Snyder, the coach Gardner embraced so fiercely after he hung 40 points on KU more than a month ago when the Tigers beat these Jayhawks 89-86 in overtime.

The problem with today's game is that the officials are letting them play and Missouri isn't. No heart. No effort. Get after the ball! Protect the ball! Block out! None of that. Kansas is hacking and slapping every chance they get and Missouri isn't returning the favor.

Well put. The team only reflects what they've been taught and it's very easy to see how bad of a coach Synder turned otu to be

KU did well but the big 12 was very weak this year, and look who is still in the Texas teams. Rush should stay another year as he would not get a call to go pro anyway. The 3's beat Texas and the 3's beat KU last night because KU could not hit the hole.

Wait until next year..........that's alot better than waiting another decade.....how often has MU even made the Final Four, much less won a national championship. And who's calling for Self's head? His team won another Big XII tourney and shared the league title with Texas. When was the last time MU won a men's b-ball title? Stipo and Sunvold?? 1983..........and Self isn't the best we've got, we also have Wright, Chalmers, Rush, Kaun, Giles, and the top point guard out of Chicago for next year. Know your facts, romando

ramondo..........know your facts.....despite KU losing in the first round again, at least they were IN the 65 field tourement again, something 16 or 17 straight years, and they won both the Big XII Tourney and shared the league title with Texas. When was the last time MU's Men's basketaball program won a league title? Was it in 1983 with Stipo and Sunvold? That's a long time ago. And Self isn't all KU has........we also have Wright, Chalmers, Rush, Giles, Jackson, Robinson, Kaun and the top point guard out of Chicago for next year. Waiting another year doesn't seem that bad compared to how long MU has waited for a Final Four.
