07:41 AM ET 12.13 | Bill Self's team had some explaining to do -- to one another. After signing a few basketballs in the locker room Wednesday, the Kansas men's basketball players huddled in a circle to air out their thoughts and frustrations during a players-only meeting. Kansas sophomore Perry Ellis left encouraged that the Jayhawks, who have lost three of their last four games, are headed in the right direction. "We all just spoke out to each other and really tried to dig deep," Ellis said. ... Obviously, these type of gatherings hold a bit more weight with fans around Lawrence after the 2007-08 team famously held a team meeting over wings at Henry T's. The Jayhawks didn't lose again after the informal get-together, later defeating Memphis in overtime to win the national title.

I guess that's how people speak in 'Bubbaville', eh?

Or is it because your mother/wife/sister (same person, BTW) never taught you any better?

Besides, I am the uneducated, illiterate, and desolate hillbilly from Arkansas. The un-branching family tree references are much more aptly applied towards me than you.

Just aboot the only thing to say here is:
Takes one to know one.

That transcript gave me a chuckle, he's close to the line so you can see somebody (I can't because I'm blind) over reacting but it's obvious he's joking around as nobody who speaks like that can spell transcript right.
Poor Doc, always misunderstanded.

Or, go midwestern with it...
"We are bad."
"What are we going to do?'
"We should do what Coach tells us to do."
"Aren't we doing that?"
"No, we are not. Listen to him. Really listen."
