Cyclones psyched to have Mark Mangino back in Big 12

Seems an issue is to me is that we keep whiffing on hiring a guy who becomes huge. Meyer and Harbaugh come to mind. Mangino came in a horrible situation and gave us good memories. To my knowledge it was never denied that he said what he said and he has temper issues. But that team gave us hope (unless we played Tech,Ut (05 gave them a great game), and UT). Gill was a disaster. In Perkins defense, Gill was viewed to many as the next big thing. Looking back his recruits left us bare. Got a stable of running backs but no qbs,wrs,o line, a couple decent d line, did well with linebackers but not well with the secondary. Charlie might not lead us to wins but with his recruiting, I feel much more encouraged. We just have to find the next big thing at coach if Charlie doesn't pan out.

Column: Love, Wiggins trade logical

Love is a star right now. He is the only guy who can create his own shot on offense and is the best rebounder we have seen since Barkley. It all depends on how they view Wiggins. If they view wiggins as the next LeBron, then you don't make the trade. If you view him as a star, then you trade. Love is a star now. Also, it would be good for Wiggins. Wiggins will be the third option for the next 5 years. If traded to Minnesota, he goes in as the primary guy. Question is, will he be able to handle it? I hope he has the mentality that if traded, he will make the cavs regret it. While we are at it, Twolves should trade for TRob and Ben Mac, make my decision on which team to follow a lot easier

Cole Aldrich sold on PG Graham

Loved how this went from an article talking about new talent to a discussion bashing EJ. Stay classy KU boards.

Cole Aldrich sold on PG Graham

Well if our standard for being a good instructor is you have to be an amazing player, then 98% of coaches at this level should be fired.

Bill Self says 2-year rule just fine with him

The key word is fair. What is fair?

You have two athletes one football and one soccer. Football guy gets a full scholarship and soccer guy gets half. Both are stars on their team. Football guy maintains a 3.0 and helps bring the school millions. Soccer guy also holds a 3.0 but sport cost more then it makes. They introduce a stipend of 5k. Soccer player needs 5k per year to complete pay of tuition. Football player feels like he was slapped in the face, feels he should make more. Both have to follow the same NCAA rules, but get an equal stipend. Is it fair to the football player to make equal to the soccer guy? Is it fair that the soccer guy has to use all his stipend to pay for school? The conversation is much more complicated then we make it. Hundreds of athletes at each school will be impacted.

Ukrainian wing Mykhailiuk chooses KU

First, a couple days ago I swore he was 6'6, now 6'8 and still only 16? Phew. Second, watched some highlights of him, which obviously show only the good. But boy he can be a star. A very smooth shooting stroke. He has tight handles and biggest thing I noticed is how quick he is. And we get him for 2 years no matter what. Which means if he leaves, he will be just 19 when drafted. We have a very long and athletic 2 and 3s. Greene and Oubre can shoot very well also. This team is shaping up to be very good. If the NBA adds a year and we get to keep Alexander and Oubre, anything but a final four in two years will be a huge disappointment.

Florida-Kansas rematch set for Dec. 5 in Allen Fieldhouse

I agree with compelling. I would have no issue with playing them eventually again on a yearly basis. What bothers me is when they complain that we won't play them and act like it's all our fault. That was the risked they took when they left. They shouldn't be able to leave and then whine that everything isn't going their way.

Florida-Kansas rematch set for Dec. 5 in Allen Fieldhouse

Mizzou cracks me up. They left, they broke up the oldest rivalry to the west. They made all the choices that breaks up the relationship. Then, says we are pouting by not wanting to play them. If you leave, don't acted shocked when teams lose interest in playing you. If you want to play us, come play in our house for the next 10 years. They chose to leave, they can do all the effort to come back.
