    Junior guard Sam Cunliffe will transfer from #KUbball per a KU release. -- No word on a school yet.

    If you go to Kansas MBB don't expect to coast and just get your degree. It is semi-pro basketball and they have the luxury of being near the top and getting the top talent.

    Wonder if they'll be OK without his 5 minutes and 2 pts a game.

    Player transfers are pretty common anymore in college basketball. This isn't really newsworthy.

    It's newsworthy if Kansas is squeezing out players to upgrade talent like a fat man at a buffet dropping a deuce to make more room for endless ribs. (Hint: which is exactly what Kansas is doing)

    Edit add-on -- there's a big difference between what Iowa State, for example, did in explaining Jakolby's situation to him and THEN filling that scholarship. Kansas is taking commitments beyond the allotted scholarship limit, then getting rid of dudes. That's BS. I assume that's Surly's point.

    I'm sorry, but if you are a marginal transfer and you go to Kansas I won't feel sorry for you if you are recruited over--which I think is what the OP is suggesting I should feel...?

    If you don't think CSP is working to recruit over current players he isn't doing his job. Tim Floyd tried to recruit over Jacy Holloway for 4 years. He has admitted that publicly and laughs about it now.

    We over recruited Richard Armadi IIRC for Deandre Kane.

    Cunliffe wasn’t a Big 12 caliber player and Bill let him know that and told him if he wanted playing time he better go somewhere else. Where doesn’t that happen?

    I think Self honestly was caught off guard, pardon the pun, that LaGerald Vick is back in Lawrence for at least another a year.

    Where’s the photoshop of Bill Self as a Matador? That’s all I see now when looking at the thread title.

    Well he did end up punching his coach and giving him a bad concussion. That was obviously a good move.

    Uh, that's not what happened here. KU was not over the scholarship limit.
    Azubuike, Vick, Cunliffe, Lightfoot, Lawson, Lawson, Garrett, Moore, DeSousa, Agbachi, Grimes, Dotson, McCormack. That's the scholly limit of 13.

    Or Self fully expected Vick to be gone but then he returned. Self was perfectly FINE with Sam staying at KU. He works his butt off, is in good standing academically and has been a great teammate. Cunliffe just spent a few weeks evaluating the team in summer workouts and realized he was 7th on the perimeter player depth chart and decided to pursue better opportunities. Good for him. He knew coming into Kansas that it would take some recruiting misses and players leaving early for him to get big minutes at KU. He did his part but the roster luck didn't break for him.

    It doesn't really matter if that is what's going on or not. Every program does that to some degree. There are plenty of reasons to hate KU but this is not one of them.
