KU basketball coach Bill Self met the media March 23 to discuss a season that started with high expectations and ended earlier than anyone wanted.
Copy and paste the link:
HCBS: Next time when you allow a mediocre team to dictate the game, PRESS THEIR INBOUNDS PASS! Disrupt their flow like they did ours then let superior talent take over.
Who the heck are you to be telling Coach how to coach?
Self needs to step up and take the responsibility.
You guys are both idiots! Like Self said, "you don't win 33 games and decide you are going to change who you are." They lost, it sucks, but it's over. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
One characteristic of the KU team was a great number of turnovers, often in the 15-20 range. With weaker opponents, they were usually able to overcome that but with stronger ones, especially on a day off in terms of shooting accuracy, it was a major obstacle. In the UNI game, they had 15 TOs again of which UNI scored 19 points. Some TOs are inevitable in any game, but when most of them are unenforced (losing the ball while dribbling, bad passes, stepping out of bounds), it is a major problem. Unfortunately, that shortcoming, obvious throughout the season, was not corrected. With that many turnovers, a team may win the conference but will not win the championship.
It's hard to believe that just two years later, Self goes from great coach to guy who can't coach. It's funny really, and if Self ever has time to waste, he'd get a belly full of laughter here.
There is one thing that I'll bet he thinks about: Collins/Taylor 0/11 from three. We'll have to get much better guard play in the tournament to be a factor next year. He'll get it figured out. Our record and season was stellar, and so it doesn't seem possible that our guard play fell off so far.
