One can’t really blame the Kansas Jayhawks for coming out flat in the finale of their Big 12 regular season. After clinching an NCAA record 14th consecutive conference title with the shallowest, smallest Kansas team during the historic run, Saturday’s contest meant little to the Jayhawks, and everything to the barely-even-on-the-bubble Oklahoma State Cowboys.
But don’t tell that to Kansas head coach Bill Self, an Oklahoma State alum.
His team never led during an 82-64 defeat, their second loss to the Cowboys this season, marking the first sweep of Kansas in a home-and-home series since 2001, a span of 103 such series.
With about six minutes left, he lost it on the officials following an offensive foul call against Kansas.
While his message wasn’t quite picked up by the broadcast, it doesn’t take a lip reader to comprehend it: “God you guys f**king suck. You guys f**king suck.

The tongue-lashing earned him a well-deserved technical foul.
The call that got Self so heated came on the heels of a highly debatable charging call against the Jayhawks on the other end.
