Suggs did his best to keep them in this one but Kispert and Timme shrunk mentally in this game after they got hit in the mouth by a bigger, badder team with real athletes. Turns out learning how to overcome some adversity in a season makes a difference.

Baylor is a deserving champion and this kind of success was a long time coming for that program. It will also always be kind of funny how all of Drew’s set plays are things Self ran first.

He's not Rico Gathers, but I'd offer him a UDFA contract.

You were right. They got suffocated by the better athletes and they couldn’t handle it.

Seems like there were a LOT of blowouts in the tournament this year.

He’s 6 5 250 pounds. Yep that’s a TE right there

Yeah, I thought Mitchell would rape their faces. I didn't think it would happen inside.

Baylor just has insane athletes and for once, they can play.

To be fair, if Self beat my ass for 15 years, I'd steal some shit too. :-)

I still remember walking out of the 2012 B12 championship game (MU v BU) to that chant only to watch MU lose to Norfolk 5 days later.

Baylor deserved more credit than I gave them. They're mentally tougher than any team Drew has rolled out there. Hell of a team they have down there.

Mitchell is gonna be a player in the NBA. Not the most natural scorer but he’s just gonna outwork guys. Maybe a Kyle Lowry type.

I have no idea how he's projected, but goddamn is he fast and slippery.

Tyshawn was probably the fastest dude I saw in the NCAAs, but Mitchell is close and is probably slipperier.

If he sticks in the league, I'll enjoy watching him. Dude can straight move.

Reminds me of every Alabama football game.

Baylor played tough games against eventual champions in the Elite 8 in 2010 and 2012, early in his tenure. Drew has a serious issue playing KU, but has been underrated.

(And I'd hope anyone in the KU hoops threads knows I've been saying this for years)

Baylor played 17 teams in the regular season that made the tournament.

As good as the Zags were this year.
This game was over for the Zags, before it started.

Fair.

But this team is different. Drew has had what I thought to be incredibly talented rosters that got beat by lesser talented, tougher teams. They also weren't even remotely as skilled as this one top to bottom. He had guys that could fill it up on defensive breakdowns but if you stayed on them, they fell apart. And Drew can't scheme up easy baskets against good defenses.

But this team will fucking put it in your eye. Their big guys aren't maybe as skilled as some of the best guys they've had like Isiah Austin, but they're tougher.

This team is different than the others Drew has put out.

What do teams from 11 and 9 years ago have to do with this team as well as KU/regular season performance?
