Brandon Rush an NBA champ

My experience has been that after the first answer, you're in. The rest of the questions are optional. They just don't tell you that.

Jayhawks’ Mason turning heads

Wake up, people. This is just one poster's way of turning the thread from whatever the article is about to being about himself. It's sad.

Graham working on three-point game

Good analysis of the "Fool's Gold" statement. At the time, I was unhappy about the apparent impact of that comment on the team's 3-ball shooting too. But I'm re-thinking that now. And of course now we know that Greene's injury was a big factor as well!

Column: He’s the right hire for ISU

Every time the Hawks play on national TV the announcers are always talking about how KU's string of conference victories is bigger than their home losses during the same time span – and saying how historically incredible that is. So … your statement that about "out side of KU …" is way off the mark.

Slam-dunk decision: Ole Miss transfer Dwight Coleby coming to KU

Thanks for the HCBS perspective! As is usually the case, it's a safe bet that Coach Self knows what he's getting … whether we do or not. But hey, if some folks can't pretend to be much better at evaluating talent than Coach Self and his staff are, then what are they going to post about?

KU commitment Vick 50/50 on reclassifying

HCBS also loves upperclassmen, and Greene has the edge there. I agree that no matter how much he'd actually play next year, Vick will be ahead by joining KU now and spending the next year in the KU system rather than waiting until 2016.

Column: Svi can be a teen dream

Tough crowd this morning. "Brennan"? I don't know who he is, but I'm a "huge fan" of Brannen Greene. Details aside, I certainly agree with Gerry that NBA scouts probably know a thing or two about potential … since that's what we all know they draft on.

Shooting guard Vick to begin KU visit

Lucas will be a fourth-year (redshirt) junior next year – not a senior.

Shooting guard Vick to begin KU visit

I'm not convinced that Lucas is a "low ceiling" player. Self has said repeatedly that Lucas has the potential to be a starter. He played well last season even though he had a variety of injury issues we knew nothing about. When we see a healthy, experienced Lucas play next season, I'm hoping that we'll see the potential that Self has been talking about.
