Game Day Breakdown - No. 3 Kansas at No. 14 West Virginia

Totally agree, its extortion of the established and hard earned fanbases. The whole problem with the "its just $5 theory" is that we already pay $100/mo for cable and it includes ESPN, no way a conference game, let alone between two nationally ranked teams, shouldn't be on NATIONAL TV. Its a full disenfranchisement of the older fanbase, I don't think my 90 yr old mother and Jayhawk fan is going to figure out the whole streaming concept. The old deal with Spectrum was much better for fans who want to watch every game, even if it paid less money, remember that you cant just buy a fanbase.

Benton Smith: Jayhawks should be even tougher to beat with McCormack back — as a backup

Lets give Doke some recognition as the last two games showed how much his game improved since arriving as a Freshman and fouling anybody within his ominous wingspan. Sure, the numbers weren't eye popping or even close to his career records, but lets face it, he had to play conservative as the only big, as if he was in foul trouble from the opening horn with no backup, yet he rebounded, blocked shots, defended, ran the court, and even made two FTs in a row without fouling out. His impact on the game was obvious even if it wasnt a highlight reel of dunks. His maturity and understanding of the game was on full display.

KU football loses commitments from 2 Class of 2020 prospects

Could it be the facilities gap? I know we've improved but our facilities arent nearly as eye popping as bigger programs.

Azubuike's complete game at Texas earns top spot in ratings

How did Doke's weight loss contribute to his progress? From what I see on the floor this year, he's jumping higher, moving faster and his stamina has improved, leading directly to having the energy to play D, block shots, and run the floor, and on top of all that, he's getting one to two fewer fouls per game for just being big. For a seven footer, his footwork has always impressed me, and he is exploiting it more by not being so wide when making moves like he did on Simms. last year, that would have been a charge or walk. He's come a long way from just being a Dunker and his FT's are improving!.

Kansas basketball games on Big 12 Now/ESPN+ a new source of frustration for some KU fans

The deal sucks all the way around. College athletics is about its fanbase and anything that keeps games away from the fanbase is stupid and counterproductive. Given that we used to have every game on tv with Spectrum and now we dont its a bad move, a blatant attempt to extort the fanbase for a little more money, and then they havent delivered a quality product for those who paid the ransom.

'Planet' Azubuike powers Kansas past East Tennessee State, 75-63

Best planet for Doke is Saturn - a giant surrounded by rings of guards, especially in the 4 guard lineup. Sylvio awoke tonight as well, good to see our bigs have a great game. Keep growing and learning, cant wait to see you guys once jelled.

Kansas lands commitment from 3-star point guard Latrell Jossell

Welcome to all four but they are all pretty slim, better start getting on the strength and nutrition program now.

I really like their attitudes, feel KU is their dream school and will be program first multiyear contributors. With the exception of Josh and Wigs, one and dones like Selby, Oubre, McLemore and,Grimes who actually played, not to mention those like Diallo and Preston who never did, have been highly overrated versus the production of playing another four star that had already been in the program for at least a year in terms of strength and knowledge of their role in the offense.

Sounds like Latrell could become another Collins type PG who lights you up if you dont engage him at all times, either by shooting or blowing by on a drive, but without the constant struggle with his weight. A guy so pesky, regardless of his size, it affects the way the defense covers your offense, keeping them honest so to speak.

Notebook: Mitch Lightfoot could still redshirt after coming off bench against Fort Hays State

Dear Mitch:

Please Redshirt. I dont say it lightly after all the times you've come off the bench and settled us down when things were out of control, I really love your D and shot blocking, but I think we will need it more next year than this year because you will get more opportunities/minutes as a 5th year senior.

You also get your grad degree which will probably be more important in your overall life than playing your last year of college basketball this year versus next. Worst case, all the bigs but Doke stay and Coach has a big recruiting haul too, you'll still get more minutes next year or you could even transfer and play immediately even though I know you bleed crimson and blue. Strength and size have always been against you when up against bigger players and another year in the strength program as your body is maturing will help you on the court regardless, especially if you go overseas to keep playing ball.

Last nights game vs Ft Hays already identified that with Doke in the game, Defenses arent guarding the 4 when playing two bigs, so this year we may be playing four guards around him more than initially thought, reinforcing the more oppty next year than this year argument, as Doke is a Senior and there isnt another one like him on the team now or on the radar for next year.

KU announces multiyear agreement to reignite Border Showdown rivalry with Missouri

Plenty of self inflicted Misery during the interim, not sure if they can stand one more year of it, let alone 6 straight.

KU announces multiyear agreement to reignite Border Showdown rivalry with Missouri

I could have done without it, but I guess its the price of firing/hiring a new AD, whose daughter is a Tiger. I have enjoyed the de-escalation of the hatred, we have enough of that already from the mainstream media, dont need any further fuel for the fire. Makes sense from a financial standpoint, but being all about the Benjamins is exactly why Mizzou left.
