Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa declares for NBA draft, will return to KU if NCAA appeal is granted

You're so right, Brett. All players are just innocent lambs and none of them ever ask for money. Every one of them simply wants an opportunity to get an education. That's why Silvio's case is nothing special, because he's just like every other pure-as-the-driven-snow athlete.

As usual, Brett, you're spot on with your brilliant analysis.

Kansas coach Bill Self far from panicked about current recruiting challenges: 'Oh, we're going to get some guys'

The fact that there are 15 likes for Matt and zero for Brett says it all ...

KU announces formal filing of Silvio De Sousa's appeal of NCAA suspension

I don't think a lawsuit would work because schools choose to be members of the NCAA -- i.e., it's a voluntary organization (at least theoretically).

If lawsuits could work, the NCAA would be getting sued all the time.

KU sophomore Silvio De Sousa facing potentially important week

What the NCAA is continuing to do to this poor kid is unfathomable, criminal and inexcusable. He absolutely should see whether he can make it in the pros without having to wait another year -- and let's face it, the odds of the NCAA changing their mind on appeal are slim.

KU golf hall of famer, LPGA founder Marilynn Smith dies at 89

What a great tribute to a tremendous Jayhawk!

I hadn't heard of her before but she clearly left a proud and inspiring legacy.

KU's Dedric Lawson eager to utilize skills gained at Kansas to carve out NBA career

What are the odds of Silvio's appeal being decided by the deadline of April 21st, one in a million??? I would think you'd have a better chance of winning the lottery than to count on the NCAA deciding anything that quickly.

In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the NCAA hadn't resolved the appeal by the beginning of next season. If I were Silvio, I would definitely declare.

KU's Dedric Lawson eager to utilize skills gained at Kansas to carve out NBA career

I agree, yet I don't think he'll play in the NBA. Believe me, I hope I'm wrong, but I'm not sure if any of his skills are top-level enough to compete against NBA players. I see him having a long, successful career overseas if he chooses to go there.

Though discreet, Les Miles provides some details about KU's spring scrimmages

Imagine how good a job Parchment must be doing to be the only player singled out for praise by Miles. Must feel great for him, and I look forward to seeing him in the fall.
