Kansas should fire Roy Williams, but not before honoring him with the “TCU Runner Up” banner. What is so drastically wrong with that program? Already 3 losses in 22 games? Unfathomable.

Doesn’t Bill Self coach Kansas? Roy Williams coaches NC!
Confused am I!

The craziest basketball season ever keeps getting crazier….

Here’s why I’ll continue to rip IU: Every time I think a school is really good this year, they get their butt kicked by nobody.

I’m the Kiss of Death.

So…..IU SUCKS!!!!!

LOL!!

The insinuation that Self and Williams can be compared to Clown Crean is ridiculous. Together they have almost 1,200 wins and multiple national titles and final fours. Clown Crean on the other hand is … only entertaining.

Jeremy, loved the U2 reference to open the chat. One of their best songs.

You are so easy to wind up, I wonder if you aren’t a wind-up clown yourself.

It’s really simple: Crean is awesome. You are not.

^ Can you explain the symbolism of that picture. I mean, it’s funny funny funny without any explanation, but I am just really dying to know what it means, and why Sampson has such a long arm.

Lord of the Funny Bone: absolute brilliance, as always. Meanwhile “thinking” is huffing and puffing at the opposite end of the spectrum. Kansas to fire Roy Williams?! Hmm… Is this part of an elaborate scheme to hire Crean?

The more Crean wins, the more the trolls spew their drivel. Yawn.

@fairfield-

Here are the Cliffs Notes for the image;

-Sampson represents the ‘long arm’ of the Establishment.

-The long arm reaching for the phone is obviously symbolic to the corruption within the Establishment bringing down one of their own(the NCAA’s investigation into Sampson’s 3-way phone calls)to retain a public image of credibility.

-Sampson now works in the Establishment underground with full support the media, the new hire, and those close to the program, as part of the deal to use him as the “goat” to take down a basketball program he served as secret infiltrator.

-Benson Gort symbolize the simpleton Hoosier fans that buy into anything the Establishment feeds them. Once supreme in intellect to the common basketball fan, Gort was captured by Dan Dakich, reprogrammed, an now has no ability to perceive reality. He is merely a helpless product of a stagnant future. He remains useful as the memory a Kent Benson hook shot. Clinging to old memories and old culture, he is a robotic slave to the Establishment.

-Dustin symbolizes the humble decent man…Caught in the system he so dearly wish he had the inner strength to pull away. He is dutiful and dedicated, but he is longing for more meaning in his life. In the deep reserves his heart, he despised the Establishment organization lost(the contempt for the Establishment symbolized by paper, the printouts, and the bureaucracy chaining him to be the constricted, military-styled, regimented journalist, he never desired to be.

Tom Crean represents the blind faith in it all. The tongue hanging out the mouth is the gluttony of speech to ward of all remaining truth.

oops. Correction to Dustin’s paragraph:

He is dutiful and dedicated, but he is longing for more meaning in his life. In the deep reserves his heart, he despised the Establishment organization lost(the contempt for the Establishment symbolized by paper, the printouts, and the bureaucracy chaining him to be the constricted, military-styled, regimented journalist, he never desired to be.

That’s still not correct. One more attempt. Correction to Dustin’s paragraph:

He is dutiful and dedicated, but he is longing for more meaning in his life. In the deep reserves his heart, he [despises] the Establishment organization(the contempt for the Establishment symbolized by paper, the printouts, and the bureaucracy chaining him to be the constricted, military-styled, regimented journalist, he never desired to [become]. He has no idea just how much he has lost his way.

We need to conclude the above explanations with an Establishment tune.

Ahhh… sounds like an expert art interpretation. Unfortunately, I wasn’t Scooping a lot during your “Establishment” theory (I had wrongly dismissed your posts as “Student Section”-ish drivel) so I don’t now the full details. My loss.

Truth..? I saw the phone about 10 ft. from Sampson’s reach..My original doctored photo didn’t have the extended arm. I thought it would be fun to give him the extra long arm reaching for the old-style rotary dial phone(the addiction ever so strong though he appears to be staring at Gort as if the temptation can be sensed by the supreme being from space soon to zap him for the destructive behavior(as all humans inherently predisposed to destructive temptations).

You are more than welcome to develop your own symbolic interpretation. That’s the fun of the doctored images..It’s all open to the creativity your own devices. The Establishment would only serve to crush your own freedom of thought.

Most of my obsession with the photo doctoring is plain old stupid fun and the mastering rather primitive techniques to achieve something many believe I do with more sophisticated ‘photoshop’ programs.

And the more Crean loses, the more the apologists make up stupid excuses and tell everyone else to “shut up.”
