    KU basketball

    Obviously one needs to take into account the bias a Missouri fan would have towards KU. How much of this is true? It makes McD's troubles with Mike Taylor look like nothing. I guess it does not bother recruits (or fans)...just win, right?

    Re: KU basketball

    My love for sarcasm leads me to copy and paste this one short nugget:

    2008 offseason

    Self claims he wants to stay at Kansas, but won’t rule out talking to OSU. Eventually the draw of no oversight and little NCAA interference is too great and he elects to stay at KU.

    Re: KU basketball

    During a ‘no contact period’ as defined by NCAA rules, Self pays a visit to the #1 unsigned recruit in the nation, and to demonstrate his respect for NCAA rules states in front of witnesses:
    Self: "I'm not supposed to be talking to you, and you know that, but I just wanted to tell you that was a great win."
    Quit the bravado for someone piloting a program on serious probation.

    I don't know how historically accurate that is but it is damn funny.

    I think that's the best way to take it.

    Very slanted. Some of the stuff has actually been reported by other news outlets, so there's enough truth in there to raise the eyebrows.

    I'm naive about them, but I never realized that much stuff happened.

    Some of those allegations make Kirk Ferentz's comment: 'Not the crime of the century,' in regards to his son's 2nd arrest, seem like nothing.

    Maybe McD should recruit players with the "values" that Self does.
    The parts concerning the on-court performance by KU are clearly selective observations, but the other aspects are pretty incriminating if true.

    Again, I wish they played as hard as Kansas. I'm no fan of KU, but am a big fan of Bill Self. His teams are physically and mentally tough.
    It speaks volumes that he basically kept his entire team on campus this summer to lift and condition themsleves to another level.

    Meanwhile, we shouldn't have any players (except for Brackins) leaving Ames for hither and yon; they should have been here.

    Again, I wish they played as well as Kansas. Ames High plays hard...but if they played in the Big 12 I am confident that they would not surpass the 4-12 mark.
    I do admire Self's ability to not allow Collins getting fat every summer in Chicago while others work in Larryville to become an issue... or Morningstar training in California. Are you suggesting the off-season standards are different?

    I don't think we'd have been within 5 of Kansas in the Phog with about 10minutes to go last year if effort was the difference between us and them...
