Rio and Jabari pic - Can you say awkward? I would have expected to see a picture of "The Goat" before seeing a picture with Rio in it.

Someone apparently failed grammar and spelling. Not enough schol"o"rships to go around, Yeoman?

So long. Farewell. Auf wiedersehn, goodby.

Hope you enjoy the fame you have earned by occupying the spot and scholorship that another "real studert" could have earned. Someonw who was interested in the imagniary purpose of the University of educating young people.

Bill Self is really irratating in approving this conduct. He is supposed to support the education of these young men.

But there are big bucks to be earned. Never mind ethics, responsibility, education values and ,morals. Just get the big bucks.

Hope you do not break a leg, then what will you do??

I actually think that Ben is going to be a star in the league. There are only a few guys in the NBA who can create their own shots - the elite guys. Just below that are some really good players who can knock down open looks, who can sky and who have the athleticism to make spectacular plays. Sounds like Ben to me.

He'll be lucky to see 10 minutes per game in the NBA, just a money thing, he is far from being NBA material.

Thanks for these post- press conference photos. Wonderful, touching moments. I love the smile on Coach Self's face. Very much like the one on my face as I watched ~ the look of a super proud father after our "son" has done something really special for his family; as a result of his dedication to all the hard work he has given and his unbelievable ability. I am "super proud" to have Ben, and Ben's family as a forever part of the Jayhawk family. My very best wishes to all.

Raise the NBA minimum age to 21. Go to Europe earlier if you want. Paying them to 'develop' by playing 10 minutes a game in the NBA (if they're lucky) is a joke.

The mom looks relieved that she'll never have to work again since her son will support her for the rest of her life.

Thank goodness her son turned down a degree and the best times of his life so she could sit at home and watch Real Housewives on her new 62 inch HD.

I can't believe Self pushed him out. He has things to work on but apparently Self doesn't have faith that Ben's value will still be up if he comes back. Sadly it is all about money Afterall.

Looking at these pictures he could be my favorite all time JAYHAWK. You can tell looking at these pictures how difficult this decision really was. You can see it in his mother, what a sweet mother. When you have a child deep down you know what's best for them. Lots of mixed feelings here, she knew KU was very very good for her baby at this stage of his life. Mothers always know. Well it looks like its the NBA for now. Congratulations Ben but the JAYHAWK nation will be here for you whether or not you change your mind!
