4-star prep G Cassius Stanley chooses Duke

Deep breathe folks. Amazing to me how much weight fans put on 17/18 year old recruits.

Grad Transfers TJ Holyfield just visited Kansas and Rayjon Tucker is visiting in early May. Tucker is the real deal who averaged 20 at Arkansas Little Rock. Kid is from Charlotte so I’m sure Dotson knows him but he’s a high flyer and can shoot. He’s instant highlights.

Add in the fact that Hampton still may reclassify is also a good possibility for KU. Yes, there are still a lot of “What If’s” but Doke coming back is the anchor that will allow this to all start taking form. Hopefully, more good news from De Sousa this week with the appeal and Kansas is off and rolling.

Tucker is the kid I want. He’s athletic, he wants to prove he’s an NBA player, and he’s 21. IMO that’s the kid Self and staff need as a must get.

Finally, it is a blow missing the top recruits to Duke but it’s also not the end of the world. Next year IMO is more of a concern than this upcoming year because Doke (Sr) and Dotson are as good as gone next year. Picking up Enaruna for bracing the future foundation would be huge and getting Holyfield and Tucker to go along with McBride and Braun would actually be a home run IMO. Tucker, McBride and Braun actually really help in the “shooting” department. It will all be okay, folks.

KU coach Bill Self says nothing new to report on Silvio De Sousa's status

Play De Sousa! Force the NCAA’s hand. Everyone wants to point fingers at his guardian and the NCAA but I also point my fingers at Kansas, the coaches, and athletic department as well. All parties involved.

De Sousa getting screwed every which way. If you really believe De Sousa is the victim than stand up for him. I truly believe Kansas taking the chicken $!%# way out of this one.

You want change and make a statement, Kansas has a pretty good opportunity here to do the right thing and force the NCAA’s hand and they are folding like a lawn chair. Keep your head up, Silvio. Eventually, all the adults surrounding you will wake up.

Report: FBI gives NCAA clearance to begin investigating some basketball programs in corruption scandal

Does he have eligibility issues? Did Self and Townsend know this? Rules? What Rules? Kansas wants to play the victim but De Sousa is the real victim, especially when Self and Townsend knew. Do the right thing and play him! Force the NCAA’s hand. Are we really concerned about the asterisk next to last season, games forfeited, scholarships pulled and banners pulled down? Come on, wake up!

If Kansas and for that matter, everyone involved believes De Sousa is the true victim than stand up for him. Force the NCAA to make a decision and be the complete hypocrites that they are. If the worst thing that happens is what happened to Jim Boeheim and Syracuse then I say bring it on baby! Do we really believe that Jim Boeheim’s 101 wins were really vacated? What a sham.

Kansas is at the focal point. They played the game and were playing it well, but guess what? They got caught. If you want to change the game that is being played and you’re really for the “Studen-Athlete”, then play De Sousa. Quit trying to hide behind the charade of what Addidas, Nike, And Under Armour are really doing. Embrace this situation!

Play Silvio De Sousa! Kansas IMO taking the wrong approach. De Sousa being the sacrificial lamb I do not agree with. Protect The Program At All Costs, Right?

Wiretapped phone call of KU coach may become part of NCAA inquiry; AD confirms NCAA hasn't started on De Sousa review

That’s the the thing. You keep trying to prove “KU’s Innocence” or defend the actions of Self and Townsend. Let’s not be naive here. Instead, let’s just embrace the situation at hand. You’re exactly right, Self has no recourse over last season or its record or all the accolades that came with it.

De Sousa is a pawn. You really think De Sousa is the main issue at play here? If the NCAA wants to find anything on Townsend or for that matter, Self, it’s pretty much all there. Whether it was last year or this upcoming season, by the time the NCAA makes a decision, it will all be revisionary decisions at play.

Let me ask you this, you really think Silvio De Sousa did anything wrong here? Not his guardian, Not anybody else but Silvio De Sousa himself? If you don’t then why is he sitting and what is there to worry about? His guardian is going to jail. Imo force the NCAA’s hand and make them be the hypocrites that they really are.

De Sousa already played last year so what’s the differnce between last year and this year? A couple banners and a couple asteriks? You say what about the other 14 players on the team? I say, what about De Sousa? Self and Townsend have as much damning wire taps then anything De Sousa himself was involved in. Business as usual. If you going to play the game you better be ready to finish it. Especially, if you believe De Sousa is innocent, which I do.

If Townsend is innocent until proven guilty, what does that make De Sousa? 100 percent Innocent? So, should Townsend not Coach and sit out without pay until the NCAA figures out its case and findings? De Sousa is the fall guy and I’m not okay with that.

You want to protect Self and Townsend but have no interest in giving benefit of the doubt to De Sousa? Which, I’m still trying to find out exactly what he did wrong. Not his “Guardian”, but De Sousa the kid? Seems like you’re presenting a double standard.

I would really like to believe that. I've tried rationalizing that stance and I really can't. Not based off the information that was presented. This situation is different. De Sousa is in no different spot than Self or Townsend. In this instance, from where I sit, the rest of the team doesn't out weigh De Sousa because Self and Townsend are directly correlated. But, Good Luck trying to justify that.

NCAA already cleared him last year through the clearinghouse. Kansas, Self, and the athletic department are voluntarily withholding him because of new findings. FindIngs, ironically, they knew about all along. You make it seem so easy for De Sousa’s future plans. Protect the program at all costs, right?
