Snoop Dogg says KU shouldn't be surprised by his Allen Fieldhouse show

This was the best Late Night in Allen Field House ever (and Snoop made sure of that). Judging from the response of the athletic department, it looks like Late NIght entertainment is all downhill in the future. With the apology we've gotten ourselves out on a branch that we can't crawl back off of.

Snoop Dogg says KU shouldn't be surprised by his Allen Fieldhouse show

If Self is in trouble, I guarantee it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Snoop. It may have a little to do with some potential recruiting violations. See, one is actually against NCAA regulations and the other *isn't*.

Don't compare oranges with apples. They're not the same thing.

Comments like these are reflective of a fan base that is numb to any idea of how to move a program forward.

"Not KU".

Keep with that mindset, and among the successful will be "not KU".

It's a false choice. You can actually dance with the real trophy AND dance with Snoop.

Try to get this: more potential high ranking recruits like this music than not. By far. No recruit who came has said they didn't enjoy it. In fact, coming out against an event the recruits enjoyed actually plays negatively in the minds of the recruits.

Like Kansas doesn't get it.

You should listen to some 50's music where "making love" made it's way into the lyrics. Teens were consumers of music then. This was 60-70 years ago.

It's time to stop pretending the world doesn't exist.

It's too late to worry about Kansas' image. Townsend and Self himself saw to that. It's both ironic and hypocritical that now they want to bash Snoop, whose concert was in NO WAY against any NCAA rules and will create no recruiting violations as a result.

C'mon maaaan....

See the comments I've made elsewhere. You'll find an answer to your question there.

It's a hard sell to say culture and politics are inseparable. Even when they *do* overlap, more often than not they can still be considered separately, and the connection is not a necessary one. Lebron James, for example, needn't comment on the President, nor does the latter *need* to make commentary about sports--even though the athlete is not an expert in politics, nor does the politician have any credibility in sports. That's not being inseparable. That's just arbitrarily projecting your opinion into domains that you don't belong in. Now sure, you can find necessary connections here and there (like the role of transgender athletes in sports).

This subject matter, however, is NOT one that requires any consideration of politics. It's not like Snoop is going to be impeached.

With respect, you've taken the wrong aspect from my point. I didn't say people *should have* walked away. I'm saying they had the choice to or not. So if we're being consistent, it's fair to point out that I can do that now, just as you suggest. At least that much you have right.

But now here's the difference. This is a site whose purpose and focus is sports. Not politics. To draw parallels to the event, the purpose and focus of Late Night is entertainment. The crowd was entertained. The recruits were entertained (I saw them dancing). No one was talking about AOC or Donald Trump or Nancy Pelosi at the concert so far as I know.

I'm not saying that political discussion here is inappropriate on the basis of free speech or anything of the sort. No. Each of us is certainly free to express any opinion we wish. On the contrary, my objection is on the basis of relevance, and it appears only one of us is trying to keep the discussion consistent with the purpose of the forum.

But do as you wish...

Since when?

Since always.

Sure people have spewed political commentary here on a regular basis. But I could regale you with a list of things that people regularly do that they have a right to do, but are nevertheless inadvisable. You want a political example? Westboro Baptist pickets soldiers funerals. They have the right to do it, yes. But that doesn't mean they're not a$$clowns for it.

Is the light on yet?
