Kallas Remarks by Steve Kallas
In a game where Cornell could have pulled off one of the all-time great upsets, it just didn’t happen down the stretch for them. Playing Kansas in Kansas is like an American boxing a North Korean in North Korea. Aided by some mystery foul calls in the second half, Kansas was able to come back and beat Cornell (Cornell’s Ryan Wittman missed a three to tie in the final seconds). Cornell’s big man, Jeff Foote, couldn’t quite do it the last few minutes and Cornell got out of their rhythm and their game. But know this, as previously written here, Cornell basketball deserves your respect (see Kallas Remarks, 12/23/09). Do you think these “intelligent” poll voters (including the esteemed coaches) know this is a top 25 (even top 20) team now? Hopefully, they do (better late than never).
