The top 15 tweets in wake of the K-State “Walk Chalk” basketball game at KU


Tuesday night was full of heartbreak for K-State fans after Kansas’ “Svi” Mykhailiuk hit the game-winning layup as time expired. The problem, though, was Mykailiuk appeared to travel, but not to the referee following behind him.

In honor of what some now call “Walk Chalk,” the no-call travel on the game-winning layup in the Jayhawks’ 90-88 victory over the Wildcats in Allen Fieldhouse, here are the top 15 tweets of the night.

No. 15 We start with one that shows the video so you can count the steps for yourself. The song is also pretty good.

No. 14 While the number may not be correct, the sentiment is.

No. 13 In case you aren’t convinced, even one KU basketball player is making jokes about the no-call travel.

No. 12 Since we included a KU basketball player, why not a K-State football player?

No. 11 KU fans were more than capable of making their own football jokes.

No. 10 The taste of victory from the ownership of Texas after the bowl game wasn’t lost on one tuba player from the marching band.

No. 9 And now that we’re on the topic of football, why don’t we let the former student body president crack a joke?

No. 8 Leave it to a Student Governing Association member to make a political joke.

No. 7 Whether you consider it religion, history or both, this joke leads you to the promised land.

No. 6 At least KU fans learned something in their high-priced history classes.

No. 5 But apparently the rules of basketball were not taught in those history classes. Either that or the basketball players didn’t learn them.

No. 4 That’s funny, this isn’t on the schedule. Do you think it’ll be on ESPN?

No. 3 One K-State celebrity wasted no time in calling out the Big 12 referees.

No. 2 Don’t think of them as referees. Think of them as the sixth, seventh and eighth players for KU.

No. 1 This won’t be forgotten soon. The Octagon of Doom will be ready.
