Kansas coach Bill Self talks after his team's 72-66 loss to Oklahoma on Feb. 9, 2013.
Copy and paste the link:
No, Elijah isn't going to see reduced minutes people. Elijah helped lead this team to the national championship game last year, he's just playing out of position this year. KU has to go small and move Releford to the 4, allowing Tharpe to play the point. Kansas State has been playing small with Southwell at the 4 and he killed us last time at that position.
Ask some serious questions, like will Tharpe next game? Will EJ see reduced minutes? These questions need to be asked.
I hate to point out discrepancies in anything coach says but the last few years he's instilled in his players that winning the conference was the most important thing. Not to weigh wins or losses in November or December too heavily. And also not to look too far ahead to the NCAA tournament and what seed they get.Winning the conference is the #1 priority. Now I feel as if he's changed his mind. Which makes me worry more about his confidence than it does the teams. Sure he seems cool and collected in this post game conference but does it mean that he's really confident he can get these guys to get out of their own heads? These guys need to stop thinking and start playing. You can't sit in a team meeting and talk about having fun. You actually have to allow yourself to during the game.
I agree with some of what Slick50 is saying, but coach is going to stay loyal to his 4-year and 5th-year seniors. Their time has come, and we're riding those horses. I highly doubt Coach makes any real changes other than slowly letting Tharpe get more and more time?
Next year should be fun though with Tharpe and Rio -- lot of speed and upside there. I always want to see more Traylor too.
But this year is FAR from over. Our upward trajectory has reversed, but there's some season left and a lot of play in March. I still think this group can get it going!
I agree that the loss of Danny is proving to be more devastating than first anticipated. I say offer Danny a BIG FAT contract to come back with a gurantee of sliding into the HC position when Bill retires. Come on Danny,,, Once a Jayhawk, Always a Jayhawk!!
No, the sky isn't falling,,, but the status of this team is along with the stock of BMac. Silver lining,,, Ben comes back for a second year?
Our beloved coach sounds like our beloved team looks... 1,2 and now 3 losses! These are mediocre teams we are losing to. Losing coach Manning had to be the biggest blow... The bigs are clueless out there. Withey can't even drop step to the basket without traveling... Nobody has a nice turn around jumper... The last two games I have seen too many players watching the ball instead of boxing there man out... Can we guard anything behind the arc? Are we not tough enough to fight for 50/50 balls? Offensive rebounding is terrible. KY is the only guy that wants to be on the floor... Coach Hudy, please make these guys hurt in the training room. Next years team doesn't deserve a break from boot camp!
It's not effort, it's the level of talent. Ours is extremely low. Most of the best talent is sitting on the bench for 40 minutes.
Good spin coach! Great example of being mentally tough. The sky isn't falling.
