KU Basketball News
So, Smart and Marshall the lead candidates. I guess the ability to beat Bill Self is high on Texas' list of qualifications.
And too bad Conner didn't hang around--he probably could have gotten into the last 3 minutes of our last tournament game, just like last year (and just like Svi this year) in Bill's desperate attempt to cash in on some of that Fool's Gold, lol!
UW has a chance to make history, as THE STACK SLAYER!
They can shoot the trey.
And they can play "Drive Ball."
And they have the hardest player of all to guard: a stretch 5.
They proved they can beat a four footer team in UA.
They have experience, too.
But UA did not go a full 10 deep in draft choices,
Refs could be decisive.
@HighEliteMajor Agree totally. I often just shake my head at the "other-bashing" on this site. Especially 'others' so close to home--Marshall, Weber, Barnes, etc. The gloating over a rival's losses--I won't go so far as to say embarrassed, but I certainly find it distasteful, and I know how you feel. Just seems small-minded to me. I'd hate to be in a foxhole with some of these guys and find out we went to different high schools.
All this talk about "Wait til he gets in a big conference, then we'll see the emperor has no clothes, blah blah blah." Why not just give the guy his due--he's done a great job with a lot less talent than KU.
It would be fascinating to talk to LB about anything.
I don't know what a coach might decide to do.
If something were going on a large scale, it could be very costly for any one coach to speak out.

@VoyagingJayhawk glad you are here. You might be more of an expert than our group, which is great. We had a lot of fun last year and it gives us another reason to get together. It's always great to see them come to our Jayhawk games. Coach Self really supports the royals too.
That bullpen is what's impressed me the most. I've seen Herrera for years terrorize Sox hitters. Davis is interesting. If you look at his stats, he's been a starter 3 different seasons, very average, if not below average stats, especially last year. 3 other years he's been a middle reliever with decent stats, especially this year. Phenomenal.
With just days before the start of training camp, the Minnesota Timberwolves are making a final push to acquire restricted free-agent guard Eric Bledsoe in a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns, sources told ESPN.com.
Fruitless contract talks with the Suns soured point guard Eric Bledsoe's appetite for playing in Phoenix. The Wolves are offering Bledsoe the four-year, $63 million maximum level contract that he has been seeking, sources said, but because of cap restrictions, the only way he can join the team as currently constructed is through a sign-and-trade deal. Bledsoe and the Suns have been in a stalemate all summer after the team offered him a four-year, $48 million deal in July.
@Crimsonorblue22 I don't like them either, but I have to say that " Brooke Sassin " is a pretty cool name. Since I am the master of originality (or not) I'm going to go out on a limb and assume her nickname is " Assassin " .

"I think something special is about to happen at Kansas," he said. "The team just has to buy into the system. You can feel it. We have been to a lot of programs and I have to say Kansas will be getting another trip from us."
This certainly is a good signal and bodes well for the program. I am not sure we have heard from top recruit...in football... this type of comment in as long as I can remember.
It's good he's home, but now he has to face the consequences for his deliberate act. As far as I'm concerned he deserves a dishonorable discharge and loss of all back pay and benefits. They should take the $300,000 in back pay and setup an education fund for the children of the troops killed while looking for his worthless butt.
I added a News Feeds category and I pulled feeds from cjonline, kusports and wichita eagle, but only the cjonline one worked correctly. I'm reaching out to Gary Bedore about the kusports feed as I believe it should work with a small change on their end, and I'll see what I can do about wichita eagle one. This should be a really nice way of pulling our news from other sites in real time without having to manually do it.

@VailHawk yeah you got that right; I switched that one up this year for Juju. The spoof vid shot had Naadir as the frontman of the "wolfpack". It was time to move on.
