Not in Our House

Talking about wins in Allen Fieldhouse is beating a dead horse, but it must be done.

The fact Self has won nearly 96 percent of his games there has to be mentioned, but it must get old for non-Jayhawk fans.

That’s what happens when you go 190-9, and all most of your opponents can do is take their beating and head home.

Self’s record is so amazing, even that awful dress thinks it’s gaudy.

As noted on this site before, his home record is the best in the nation during his time at KU.

Duke, who East Coasters (but not alumnus Jay Bilas) think has the best home-court advantage, has lost 13 times since 2003.

His .954 winning percentage  actually dwarfs the very impressive .840 winning percentage of previous Jayhawk coaches at Allen Fieldhouse.

Sure the players are the ones who came back on West Virginia Tuesday, but it also wouldn’t have happened if the crowd wasn’t acting like it was in the Final Four when the Jayhawks were trailing by eight with 1:57 to play.

Even an MLB player agreed.

Anyway you slice it, Self’s win-loss record is nothing short of amazing and marginalizing it in any way is a loser’s mentality.

Speaking of losers, since Self has been at Kansas, the Jayhawks have been nothing but winners (and runner-ups just once).
