Staying the course: Bill Self, Jayhawks not panicking over skid

I think the root of KU's problems will be found in the answer to this question. Why did Travis Releford take only 1 shot during the TCU game while Johnson/Tharpe took 27 shots?

KU football recruiting draws to a close

Actually, we beat out Alabama for Mr. Jaynes in 1971. Just a few years ago.

After reading "CrystalJones", I would use the I or S word to describe this person.

Ben McLemore tops ratings against Cowboys

Elijah needs to try to start playing like a point guard instead of a shooting guard. A point guard does not typically look to score first. I don't care if he played shooting guard in his prior three seasons, KU now needs him to play point guard. He needs to quit jacking up quick three point shots and to focus more on distributing the basketball to his fellow teammates. I hope he relaxes a little and trys more to help his teammates get open shots. Go Elijah!

Actually, Mark Mangino deserved one more year at the University of Kansas.

KU football commitment Marcus Jenkins-Moore not going anywhere

But not all coaches take the issue of decommitments personally. Former Georgia recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner told ESPN how little a commitment really means. In the end, a verbal commitment is nothing more than words coming out of a recruit's mouth, he said.

"Now, really, a commitment means nothing, it means absolutely nothing," said Garner, who is now the assistant head coach and defensive line coach at Auburn. "We can say what we want to -- 'We have X number of players committed.' But how many of them are actually committed? 'I am committed, but I am taking all five of my visits.' Is that really committed?

"Committed means, 'Hey, I like you and I am going to look around and if I don't find anything better, then, yeah, I am going to stay with you.'"

"It's a game, but politics do matter," Bellamy said simply.

Coaches get offended, fans get offended and every so often players get offended when a recruit decommits. In the end, though, the game of recruiting is like having a high school sweetheart. You go back and forth and weigh your options. Sometimes you get it right the first time, sometimes you don't. You're not truly committed until you sign your letter of intent. That marriage of athlete and university, as observed by the NCAA, is the only binding document that matters.
