185 miles and 45 years...
Well folks, it’s about time these 2 met up again on the court. Last time it was Eddie Sutton vs Ted Owens in the 1974 NCAA Tourney. Game was 55-54 KU in the Midwest Regional semifinals, down in Tulsa. Morningstar vs Harmon, and it was a great game. Unfortunately, there would be no more. KU leads the all-time series 9-6.
And here we are, 45 years later…with lil’ Creighton taking the walk down to Lawrence for a game. There will only be 2500 in the stands, as Covid is kicking butts everywhere, but a few of the Jays faithful are making the trip.
I expect the Bluejays to prevail, as we have the more experienced team, the better team. Few pundits, pollsters, or bettors expect us to win, but who cares what they think.
Last CU victory was wayback in Dec 1949. Last RS game was Dec 1951. Last MTE game was Sunflower Classic in Dec 1968. We’re due – Jays roll.
#Roll Damn Jays!
