    That's just crap. Take away opportunities for other program's players while providing that additional practice benefit for Kansas. Absolute crap.

    Sounds like a cool thread on a Kansas board. You don't get it, do you?

    They were chosen or chose to be? I could see how you would say that the mighty KU would choose whether to do it or not, and since I'm not about to open the link to see... congrats to you guys.


    It's a matter of PrΩ's law. Follow the path of least resistance.

    Looks like KU is in elite company... The only other school ever selected to represent the US was UNI... If KU doesn't win the whole thing they probably don't deserve to play in the XII this year.

    Press conference is this afternoon but it sounds like they were chosen to be.

    Extremely stupid to limit this to just one team.

    Yep, but this isn't a good thing for anyone or anything not named Kansas. Your OP is saying its a good thing, which is why it belongs on a KU board.

    The rich get richer, eh?

    Who did the choosing? Since it sounds incredibly unbiased on the surface....

    So that's the criteria for posting in this area? Maybe you need to put in a formal complaint. It doesn't appear that anyone else has been following your rules.

    Dear Bill,

    I'd highly recommend a day trip to scenic North Korea while you are there. Your players can perform some public service over. Maybe give out some bibles or western movies.


    Signed,
    Rest of Big XII

    They have been fielding teams of college players for years that have been getting their butts kicked. Trying something new, I suppose.

    You should probably blame Aaron White, the kid from Iowa that was on the 2013 team that got 9th. It's his fault that Team USA looked to KU to pull the team out of the gutter. McDermott too since his son was on the team.

    No, I'll blame the decision makers on this one. Something like this should just be a cut-and-dried "NO" from the NCAA, but Kansas makes them money. I guess that makes it good.
