Before anyone hollers, I'm not comparing Tharpe to Collins. Those two couldn't be more different at the same position.I don't think it's unfair to do so. Sure Collins was a McD's AA and one of the most beloved Jayhawks of all-time, but Tharpe is only a Soph and still has 2 years to cement his name in Kansas lore. By his senior year, he may be a really great 3 shooter, a great passer, and a great dribble penetrator... that's not rediclously different than Collins.
The other note is I hate Musberger....he could not stop talking about the roles on this team as if they were brand new....as if Tharpe hasn't been the pg all year when both he and EJ are in the game. It'd be nice if they could've showed a hottie in the stands to sidetrack him a little bit.Yeah and he kept referring to Tharpe as "Notter Thorpe." Moron. Does anyone have a guess as to why Tharpe wasn't in the lineup to start the second half? I mean seriously, the guy controlled the offensive tempo which led to a huge run in first half then we don't see him again until after the first media timeout of the second half. Even sh*t for brains Musberger could see "Thorpe's" impact on KU's offense.
