i find this extremely interesting
I wanted to get 'McScary' started... I don't know if that will be a thing, but I HAVE A CHANCE TO MAYBE DO IT.

ESPN has the boxscore up at: http://scores.espn.go.com/ncb/boxscore?gameId=330980097
Look at the play-by-play section. When we had the lead, 36-26 in the first half, we also had a 16-12 rebounding edge. The final rebounding numbers were 31-26 in favor of Louisville. That means they finished on a 19-10 rebounding advantage. Giving that team nine extra possessions is a recipe for disaster. So did the ball just stop bouncing our way, or did Louisville just up their intensity? Maybe McGary backed off a bit when he got in foul trouble. The way I saw their guys shoving our guys all over the place underneath, it seems like they out-physicalled us, if that's a word. How many times did Chane Behanan (or BO-hanon per Barkley) just shove Hardaway or GRIII out of the way? If THJr goes pro, perhaps GRIII can slide down to the 3, and let Morgan/Horford/McGary/Bielfeldt get more time at the 4 and 5 so we don't get pushed around as much.
McGary and GRIII, our 4 and 5, combined for 8 rebounds. Behanan and Dieng had 20. (I'm desperately trying to find a reason for that loss besides the refs because I don't want to be one of those fans, but jeez, that was WWE-style reffing in the first half, i.e., let's keep it close for TV ratings, and then we stopped playing defense.)
I saw one comment wondering why Beilein didn't call more timeouts to stop their runs. I suspect it was because he thought it was more important to prevent Siva and Smith to get rest, but a couple time-outs here and there could have been the difference.
This one hurts. It was there for the taking.
Brady wants McGary for TE.
This has to happen - start the petition drive.
Hoke wants McGary as a tight end and said he has jokingly talked to him about playing football.
"I'll take him in the red zone, just throw the ball up," Hoke said
When a guy named Johnson punches our guy in the johnson, and virtually gets away with it, it becomes the Karma that Killed Kansas.
In the last 2:22 of regulation, Johnson committed 2 turnovers which led to 4 Michigan points, plus missed the front end of a 1 and 1 which led to Burke's tying 3-pointer.
In the OT, Johnson was 1 of 3 with an additional turnover. At the end he drives for the tying basket, then (probably thinking about his missed free throw) passes up a sure chance at a lay-up or a two shot foul.
Its Karma baby, Karma! Think not? Just check out this Kansas Sports piece: http://www2.kusports.com/news/2013/mar/30/opinion-kus-stunning-loss-comes-down-karma/
