I didn't really focus on the fact he poked fun at him for crying, I mostly was just enjoying the fact he was making fun of a poke.

I certainly have no problem with anyone crying. It is an emotional release, and often good for the soul. The greatest, and strongest Man to walk the earth in my opinion was Jesus, and he had no problem weeping in front of others.

I could list many times I've freely cried in front of others, as I work with children every day, many from traumatic and abusive situations. When I was doing abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse investigations, I often cried along with the law enforcement officers I worked with, seeing some of the things adults do to children. Crying is as normal an emotion as laughing.

I apologize if I offended anyone with the rolling emojis. I didn't really consider the message I was sending....

No apology necessary. I may have come off too harshly. I do think too many people (especially men) are raised to feel shame or embarrassment when they cry, an attitude I think does harm, but if I came off as pointing a finger at you, then it's I who should apologize for pontificating.

I have nothing against men crying.
I just laugh at those fake crying or crying for ridiculous reasons

Good road win by ISU at Creighton. They are beatable but it won’t be easy.

Anxious to see how many home and road conference games we win this year.

KSU held on for a 65-59 win in a very heated road battle with Wichita State. These Kansas schools hadn't played since 2003, and the atmosphere in the arena was crazy. Really loud crowd (there seemed to be a good number of KSU fans there). It's the only time I've seen KSU play this year, and I only caught the last 10 minutes, but they looked competitive. They certainly played with intensity.

Most of us knew when Weber arrived at KSU that they would almost always be a highly competitive bunch that don't beat themselves. Weber's issue at KSU and before that at Illinois was he struggled to get the recruits to come play for him. He inherited Bill Self's guys at Illinois and came awfully close to cutting down the nets...and soon after had to rely on his own players and that is when things fell apart. No doubt we will have two tough games against them.

Wow. That may turn out to be the most shocking result of the season, unless Florida turns out to be garbage.

They beat FSU (16), Cal (20), and Ohio State. So I think it's safe to say they're a quality team.

Probably, but it seems like each season, a handful of teams have great Novembers but end up not even sniffing the tournament. Not saying that’s going to happen to UF, but it wouldn’t be unprecedented by any means.

Little bit of a trap game too. You lose to OU, lose a little shine, go into Texas Southern thinking you're going to blow them out, and quickly realize Texas Southern is not a pushover. They have played a number of major conference teams to within single digits.

You could tell Florida was good but not great. They have some good athletes but I was not overly impressed with their offense. Still a good win for us but I never saw us as an underdog when I watched that game.

Texas Southern's losses were to Oregon(5-4), St. Mary's(8-2), Washington(4-4) Air Force(7-1) NC State(6-2) BYU(7-1) Louisiana Tech(6-2)

Only one team is currently ranked in BYU, none of other teams even received votes in the polls. Florida was 23.5 favorites over Texas Southern. I think the Stephen F Austin win over Duke was the only recent point spread that was bigger than this. UMBC over UVA was a big one too but wasn't even this big a point spread.
