Chenowith one of Jayhawks’ biggest fans

Saying that someone is a great "quote" is a journalist's way of saying that a person expresses him- or herself in open, interesting ways. That's the opposite of people who are always very guarded about what they say and how they say it, so they're no fun to quote.

Jayhawks take annual Christmas shopping trip

Do we really know how Evan Manning will do? Do we attend practices, or have we seen him for meaningful minutes on the court – other than in scrub time? I'm guessing Self has a better concept. Maybe once Evan's had a few opportunities for in-game time with the big boys we'll have enough information to make educated comments about whether or not he's "the guy" …

KU overcomes late Tennessee push to advance in Orlando

To Jack: My statement below isn't an argument with you. For most of the players, I agree with you. I'm just glad that today anyway, Oubre was pulled!

KU overcomes late Tennessee push to advance in Orlando

When the lead vanished in the first half, Oubre was on the court. Same thing in the second half. And in both cases, once he was on the bench the Hawks rebuilt the lead. Of course his presence wasn't the sole reason in either case, but I'm glad Self has a fast hook. I'd love to see Oubre develop to where his court IQ catches up with his athleticism ... but today the Hawks couldn't afford to let him "play through" his mistakes.

Self hopes camp made Jayhawks tougher

That's "Jaybate Speak" for Posting Hall Of Fame. Even though Jaybate is no longer around to hand out the award, getting a PHOF is a good thing.

Maybe you know this … but what you see above is only part of the photo. Click on it and you'll see the entire shot. That will answer your question.

"… a minimum of 3 years."
Unless he goes pro in Europe.

College basketball coaches adapt Jayhawks’ go-to play

And if anyone is truly feeling jealous of UConn and UK this season, do you still remember how they did in the post-season LAST year? So their current string of being in the NCAA Tourney is what … One? Look at the Big Picture, people. That said, can KU improve? Sure! Do I still expect Coach Self to get it done? Absolutely! Does it require Kool-Aid to feel that way? I think not.

Arch sadness: KU's season ends in St. Louis, in round of 32

Good grief. Think, people. We needed an instant-impact player this year. Wiggins led the team with 597 points and a 17.1 average. That's what an OAD did for us this year. Those are numbers that only our best 4-year seniors manage to obtain. But Wiggins did it NOW. Without him, there is no 10th Big 12 Championship and certainly nowhere near 25 wins.
