In $50M suit, LSU official alleges racist remarks, sexual misconduct by Les Miles, says school retaliated against her

NDA? How is it that a sport with so many minorities has zero players that complain of it, but some administrator does? That is what makes it unbelievable. Players did not complain about it, not at KU either. It seems malicious on the surface. Anyone can say he said something racial, and in the terms of retaining employment you do not get due process.

Okay. I was wrong on the conference, but it's not the Big Sky anymore either is it? Or do you still want to be pretentious?

It's a team sport. It's not the Mountain West anymore for them. It was a great performance for the big guy. With that said, the 'Hawks executed very well in the 2nd half and played loose and with confidence. Even with the real game pressure on them, KU was poised.

No. 17 Kansas knocks off No. 2 Baylor, 71-58, to end Big 12 play with big win

This team has so much upside for next season even with the departure of Garrett. Improve the perimeter shooting where you can make 8 or 9 3's on just 20 attempts and get the rim for some free throw opportunities at the same time. Who is going to step the defense up next season for Garrett? Braun and Thompson I predict. I like our young guards and I think we've got an All-American Guard in the making. For now, let's focus on UTEP and get a big run away win, decide the game by half time and let the young guys get some experience where they can just have some fun and improve at the same time. Then get ready for the Big 12 tourney... win it! Then let's set a realistic goal for these guys. Elite 8 is doable, it's not easy, but it's doable. If we do better than that, then these guys can all call me whatever names they want to because if they get further they'll deserve it.

I would like to see that. I want to be in Gonzaga's bracket. I want to see them in the Sweet 16. I want to take them out early.

Game day breakdown: No. 17 Kansas basketball vs. No. 2 Baylor

This is a tough game. The same basic principals apply. At Waco, KU got down double digits and turned it up in the second half for the most part but had momentary lapses that let Baylor get it right back to 12 to 13 points. If KU has at least a 7 point lead at the half and keeps up the pressure for all 40 minutes, KU can win this game. Gotta keep Butler from hitting the 3's, make him drive and tough 2's with proper communication and team defense. Make him give up the rock if you can. He can score 20 and we can win, but if he scores at will like in Waco, forget about it. He is the best player in the Big 12 by far. But Baylor has other weapons. Deny the screens at the top of the key with the main guy guarding, but don't lose site of your man. And relax and have some fun. Nobody expects KU to win today. We need the shooter to hit shots from the perimeter. We're going to have to make 14 or 15 3's this evening. We're going to have to get back on defense fast. We are going to have block out, make contact with the guy, make them have to go through you and get called for fouls. If David has to rotate down low, someone on the off side needs to rotate, and then other guys need to be attentive and rotate as appropriate. Especially when the shot clock gets to under 5 seconds. 10 or fewer turnovers, force 12 or more turnovers. Lots of keys to this game in order to win. If David sees a guy wide open on the wing, get him the ball, and when Baylor rotates back out, shot fake it, drive to the bucket, make their big guy have to rotate off David and dish the ball off. Today, execution is paramount. It does not matter if we have to use the shot clock up on half of our possession today. Get the best shot, make the physical plays, shoot with confidence. If we do all those things, Kansas 85 Baylor 79. If you let up and let Baylor get 2 or 3 quick 7 to 8 point runs, we will not win.

Total Team Win: Jayhawks put together complete game in 67-61 win over No. 15 Texas Tech

With stingy defense, the other teams are going to execute against it sometimes. That is true. It is not an exercise that can keep an opponent to 0 points for a game. Let's say we allow 80 points against Texas and play good defense while allowing it but we shoot only 41% from the field, we lose. If we shoot 50% with the same number of shots we had against Texas Tech, 4 more 3's and 2 more 2's, then we score 82 points. It's a big difference. But there are other things that come into play. If he had 50% shooting with 5 minutes to play in the game, we would have had a 15 or more point lead which would lead them to have to shoot lower percentage shots. They make less of them in theory.
