    New Respect for Thomas Robinson

    After watching this video from ESPN (Thomas Robinson: Family Over Everything - ESPN Video - ESPN) I have an all new respect for him.

    I couldn't imagine going through that.

    I saw that shortly after our win @ home against KU. I can't imagine going through something like that and I hope the guy reaches his goals.

    Really makes me think how lucky I am. I couldn't imagine how that would feel. God bless him and his sis.

    Re: New Respect for Thomas Robinson

    I remember this happening last year and was just in awe when he came back right after his mother passed. Plus I always come away more impressed with Bill Self. Hoping his player does not come back never year so he can achieve dreams and help his little sister. Awesome a coach knows this is more than just Kansas basketball.

    Fred Hoiberg and Bill Self are two great people to be in coaching.

    They help their players.
