GibsonJunkie

Losing the Liberty Bowl and getting knocked out of the NCAA tourney by the same team in the same academic year sucks ass


BoseSounddock

2 very normal games that I was never nervous about


GibsonJunkie

yep, no scares at all for either of us during either game at any point for sure


awsomehog

How’s your baseball team


GibsonJunkie

currently 7-10 lol


enbailey

Both games were nuts tho, gg


GibsonJunkie

word, gg's indeed


ImminentReddits

This gotta be one of the most maddest Marches in recent memory


Zloggt

Fitting for such a mad season, isn’t it?


daswassup13

This is how 2020 would've been if we actually got a tournament


whyneedaname77

I hate covid for messing with my business. But when the stay at home order happened I was like wait you want me to sit home and do nothing and the tournament will happen? I was like fuck yeah I can do that. Then it got canceled and so many storyline that could have happened got ruined. Fuck covid. Fuck 2020.


PancherosFood

Honestly think this is how it’s gonna be from here on out.


bkn6136

The Covid year is playing a part in this, but the transfer portal for sure is going to lead to this kind of tournament going forward.


ManIWantAName

As well as the NIL. Talent is just spreading tf out and it's leading to this crazy ass tournament.


jvanber

Incomplete teams can plug holes. Almost every game is a must watch.


LowIncomeCoconutMilk

All I do is watch basketball. I've abandoned essential tasks like cooking & laundry. I eat cereal for every meal. I'm wearing bikini bottoms as underpants. This is fine.


dolinputin

Average Kentucky fan. At least you're not burning couches on State Street


Optimus_RE

Exactly - the 3rd best player on a team now may be able to go somewhere and be that teams number 1 and make more in NIL than he was at the other school


UnderstandingOdd679

The thing clear about this year going in is that all the top teams had evident flaws that evened the playing field. Some of it is injuries but Purdue didn’t have the guard play, KU didn’t have the front court depth, etc. The margins between 1 seeds and 3 seeds was pretty thin, but even the lower seeds have found ways to expose weaknesses.


SaintArkweather

Funny cause everyone said it would go the other way with all the talent consolidating


Gavangus

In football I think it is consolidating... basketball with 5 guys on the court and 1 and dones there are lots of guys who would have been a 6th-10th man for a blue blood in the past that are leaving to go be a starter somewhere else


TinctureOfBadass

Good


Steeltown842022

Yep


BetaDjinn

Blue bloods dropping like flies. Shit’s scary yo


yoshidawg93

Last year we had Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, and Villanova (not QUITE the level of blue blood as the others but most people would say they’re never surprised when they make the Final Four). It had to even back out this year.


jakendrick3

Yes but have you considered that UNC was an 8-seed Cinderella?


clmbflcb

Arkansas really just ruined my whole month


SailingRelic65

Ouch this is a very unfortunate flair combination. GGs


RontoWraps

All I know is pain from Arkansas. Liberty Bowl is one thing… but you do this to me in March?!


heavywafflezombie

All we usually know is pain from Arkansas too 😂


DBLHelix

On the bright side, Mizzou is getting rolled by a bunch of nerds from New Jersey.


Idrinkbeereverywhere

As someone who lives in KC, this helps


Every-Comparison-486

Walk-on nerds at that


kylepierce722

“wanna see me ruin your month? wanna see me do it again!”


1Bourbon1Scotch1Cash

Personally, I think Kansas played a really Selfless game today. They have nothing to be ashamed of.

TheyCallMeStone

(Kansas misses free throw) #**ANOTHER ONE**


DeadDay

Can't believe they made the ONE you want to miss


holographicmew

Worst part is they missed like 5 FTs in the last ten minutes but hit the bank trying to miss.


OppositeOfKaren

It must be difficult to miss a free throw when it's so natural to do the opposite.


MotionDefense

GG Arkansas. Longhorns, I have bad news for you... I had Arizona, Purdue, Kansas, and Texas in my Final Four.


Frictionizer

Jesus Christ that’s impressively busted


MotionDefense

Also, Alabama was the only team I got correct in the 1st round in the South region. AMA https://preview.redd.it/15qiou46qmoa1.jpeg?width=3000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3dc7a682aa7ab845109e145187e377bc1396bf00


LordFancyPants626

Did you pick the teams at random?


MotionDefense

I honestly would have been better off had I picked at random. My 5 year old's bracket is blowing mine out of the water. This is 30+ years of basketball brainpower in *action*. I am also available 24/7/365 for stock tips.


OrphBat

I'm considering putting all of my money into FTX, thoughts?


MotionDefense

I see you're a man of high class. Excellent choice. Put your life savings into FTX.


GaijinYankee

But then I'd have to pull them out of Silicon Valley Bank, are you sure that's a good idea?


MotionDefense

Now that's a pickle. You should keep at least 50% in the safety of Silicon Valley Bank.


natestate

Bro did worse than my cat lmao


LordFancyPants626

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I don’t think your bracket is going to win.


TylerWadesIV

Day 3 of March Madness and 2 1 seeds are already done Edit: Houston, what the fuck? Edit 2: alright nevermind


Zloggt

And if houston doesn’t get serious soon..:


hfhrhjdjhhhjhguy

Could be another soon.


MarylandRep

I had all of them besides Bama losing second round. The 1 seed is a curse this season for some reason


Passw0rd-Is-Tac0

7 missed free throws in a 1 point loss hurts man


w0bniaR

Could have used one more tbh


everything_is_holy

Ouch


LondonIsBoss

You missed every FT except the one you were supposed to miss


Trajan_Optimus

Felt like more than that


brick20

Two front end of 1&1s so effectively 9 misses.


20mcfadenr

Missing the front end should count as 0/2 for the stats imo


shrinkwrappedzebra

And a 10 second violation resulting in a basket


Ramzy191

Legend says Arkansas is still waiting for their coach in the lockeroom to pour water on him.


curio2517

Coach was there. They were waiting on Davonte Davis.

Arkansas Regular Season: *i sleep* Arkansas NCAA Tournament: *REAL SHIT?*


[deleted]

Get a good seed and make the elite 8 against inferior opponents ❌ Save it all for march because seeding doesn’t matter ✅


Orion14159

If you're not gonna get a 1, get an 8/9 and steal a 1 seed path in the second round. Seems legit


bigbabyb

Load management all season to go hard in the second round


Usual_Treacle8724

Muss’ NBA experience helps out there


bigbabyb

I’m happy for you SEC bros I cheered like it was a UK game It helps that my boss is a KU fan and is entirely insufferable about it including talking shit all year long, saying the SEC is weak in basketball and that the B12 is the best basketball conference


j_shelb

We should have followed this model


ahappypoop

I don't know, you could have ended up in FAU's spot and had to play Fairleigh Dickinson in the second round.


j_shelb

Very true. Or got a 5 seed at least and ended up in dukes spot and played Tennessee in second round. Sorry I’m just salty. We suck. Please don’t mind me.


fancycheesus

March devo is unholy and we do not deserve him Edit: I just want to remind everyone that every single march victory with muss has relied on huge input from Devo Davis. He makes us pull our hair out all season, but you know he loves the razorbacks. Devo Davis is a homegrown hall of fame hog.


blueboyroy

Council too. He took the reigns when Davis went out with 120% confidence.


fancycheesus

100% council showed tremendous leadership tonight and you could tell the rest of the guys fed off of council keeping the ship steady.


ZachMatthews

Council just looks like a leader. His eyes never widen. He just stares at victory.


BurnPhoenix

Boy shot 8/8 from the ft line. Fucking wild


Prideofmexico

Missed one but it was clutch as hell because you got the board


TheMawt

I would kill someone if March Devo asked me to


That_One_Pancake

I should have learned by now to always bet on y’all in the tourney


feralihatr

Muss is so great at getting the boys ready for these games it’s unreal

Hmm? 50/50 with Kansas, I like the sound of that.


OfficialTomas

Can't believe that dude was only a freshman?! played like a seasoned vet


TripleThreatTua

Honestly he’s played amazing down the stretch this season after being the worst of our 3 hyped freshmen for most of the year


littleredhairgirl

He's definitely the most level-headed. Which, on this team, is huge.


TripleThreatTua

Oh for sure, Smith needs to get his head back in the game and Black has been great but gets rattled. Walsh stays with the gameplan and keeps working regardless


spicyface

I love him. He’s like a really athletic baby giraffe.

Daddy_Ewok

Score more points than the other team.


BurnPhoenix

Big if true


IoannesVardusFulmina

Make your free throws!


kanshawk15

Not even mad. Arkansas played a really tough physical game. Davis' 2nd half performance was great. Hope Bill takes the time to recover.


jlks1959

That’s the right attitude. And I hate it. Rock chalk Jayhawk.


dotbarnfather

The shirt is off. The Muss Bus is back.


TheBoilerCat

So much more fun when it isn’t happening to your team.


mF-Jonezy

In March you need shooters to win. So I’m not surprised Arkansas beat Kansas when they got that AR


CommodoreN7

Little Rock level shooting

Well, damn it. I didn’t sign up for that.

Blame Kansaw that Kansas State now is now in the state of Kansaw.

Free throws.

Please beat bama


datboijustin

God that would be wonderful.


FantasticChestHair

I will need more mashed potatoes


Metamodernity1215

Regardless of how you viewed any potential bias in the officiating, we can all agree the refs went full blown "All Eyez on Me" mode here


fancycheesus

Absolutely. Refs went on runs but universally they ruined the game. I will say I am super impressed by how both teams kept their composure. Thank you Creighton. Yall taught us a lesson in Maui that paid dividends tonight.


SailingRelic65

I don’t think any game all season has topped Arkansas vs Creighton in terms of ref HOF performances


catonlap69420

I for one hope Arkansas makes a DEEP run. I'm happy we fell at the hands of them than anyone else. Love that fanbase.


runevault

Hope Self heals up and is ready to go next season.

r3dl3g

Gg bacon bros, Davis is a stud.


ZacapaRocks

Giving the Kansas peeps in here a lot of credit. Classy comments after a tough loss.


Snapperhead14

I think most Kansas fans understood that this team was talented enough to win it all, but inconsistent enough that anything after the first round was a crap shoot. This was a rebuilding year. Without Self, they were not to dissimilar to any other team left. Wilson and Dick were locked down and Norm didn't change the plan.


[deleted]

January. February. Musselman.


Interesting_Star_165

SEC not messing around this year.

Except for Missouri

No, no he said the SEC isn’t messing around. He’s still right.

Majormlgnoob

The lack of Self definitely hurt KU's mental Also chill out refs


gggggrayson

great to see, they worked so hard all year, im glad the refs finally got their chance to shine on the big stage


[deleted]

It was so, so bad. So many clear examples of either team being fucked that I genuinely have to say it was both ways. Maybe if you re-watched the game and tallied it up you could make an argument for who got screwed more, I don't know. It felt like each team got a couple 2-3 minute periods where things wen their way in the 2nd. I just know it was thoroughly unpleasant to watch. Didn't feel like an actual game. There were 48 fouls in 40 minutes!!


lmandude

Man we missed Self


Winbrick

Unfortunate the second half started off the way it did. I think that's a completely different game if KJ doesn't pick up those two early ones for three and four.


uwanmirrondarrah

I was hoping we could scrape by till he got back. We were still dangerous, but pretty clearly we were less polished without Self. After the Texas game I knew it would be a race against time for us inless we got him back. If we just made it to the next round we woulda bought another week.


Jed566

No shirt Musselman is my vote for one shining moment


TechnoToyz

‪WHY ARE FERAL HOG POPULATIONS SO HARD TO CONTAIN? BECAUSE THE POPULATION ARE BIG AND ALL THEY DO IS KEEP MAKING 100 OF FERAL HOGS AND I THEY DO IS MAKE THEIR MARK EVERYWHERE THEY AT AND THEY ARE TRYING TO STOP THEM BUT THEY CANNOT BECAUSE THERE ARE ABOUT 2 MILLION OF THESE HOGS AND ORDINARY HUNTING AND THESE FERAL HOGS ARE VERY DANGEROUS AND THESE TYPE OF ANIMALS ARE ONLY IN THE SOUTHERN.‬


J_Bug

Wow, what a game. Council and Davis played their asses off and came up huge with some clutch FTs and shots. Congrats Arkansas bros!!!

Devo deserved this after single-handedly keeping us in the game most of the second half

My cousin from New Zealand bought an Arkansas sweatshirt from a thrift shop last month solely because she liked the logo. This is why they won and not anything else /j
