Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be quite as savage as it ended up being.

But after Oregon thumped the KU men’s basketball team 74-60 in the Elite Eight game at the Sprint Center on Saturday night, the Lawrence Police Department offered this sad observation:

Then again, that seemed on point.

KU is now 2-5 in Elite Eight games under coach Bill Self, so Jayhawks fans have seen this outcome before.

The Lawrence Police Department continued tweeting, and it was a mix of sad and funny. As far as I know, not many fans take out their frustrations on trees.

The next tweet was kind of sad.

Fortunately, things were quiet in Lawrence, so the Police Department had a chance to have some fun at the expense of Kansas State, Wichita State and Mizzou fans.

Fans of those teams apparently were crowing on Saturday night.

No. 3 seed Oregon defeated top-seeded Kansas 74-60 in the NCAA Midwest Regional final on Saturday, March 25, 2017, at Sprint Center in Kansas City.

The last tweets of the night summed up the mood of Kansas fans.
