Five reasons to get excited about Sunday's Border War revival

All fair points, Joe.

But to be fair on my end, it's the complaining about it not being on TV and using the reason that one would've donated to a good cause that seems lame to me, not anything else.

Five reasons to get excited about Sunday's Border War revival

I was told by a KU official that KU and MU could've done TV if they wanted to do it but they chose not to because the priority was to sell out the building.

Having said that, it's not like there would've been some monster ESPN crew that put on the production. It most likely would've just been a streaming option, but even that was viewed as a secondary priority to filling Sprint Center.

Good point. I guess I always assumed that meant by flashing a graphic that says "Call this number to donate" --- I didn't necessarily consider that the money they charged for the TV option could be collected and added to the haul.

He Will, He Won't, He Might 2017: Udoka Azubuike

He turned 18 a couple of weeks ago, which means, when he first arrived on campus at KU he was 16.

Is PG Devon Dotson's decision coming soon?

Understood. But Moore, to me, seems like a perfect back-up PG. That's not a knock. He's just a little undersized, not as explosive and won't have the same athleticism and overall talent of a guy like Dotson or someone similar.

Again, that's not to say Moore's no good. He's definitely good. He wouldn't be here if he weren't. But I think it's good in a good-in-a-supporting-role kind of way. A lot will depend on who they can get and what that guy/those guys show/do when they get to campus.

Is PG Devon Dotson's decision coming soon?

Yep. I agree, Freddie. Saw a lot of Mason in that highlight video... That's high praise, of course, but he seems to be starting from a very good position.

Yeah. Who knows why. I'm not sure Langford to KU is 100 percent, but it's definitely higher than 24 percent.

Is PG Devon Dotson's decision coming soon?

I actually agree 100 percent with Robert.
I don't think anyone's thinking of Grimes as a PG and Dotson very much is. Beyond that, I think Moore would be more likely to back up Dotson.

Elite guard Romeo Langford hosts Kansas coaches, sets visit to KU campus

I don't blame you for the nerves, but you should view it as a good sign that KU and Bill Self are moving forward with business as usual...

It's hard to know for sure, but, if you have an opportunity to get two Top 10 guys in the same class — Top 6 in this case — you find a way to make sure there's room.

And, with Zion able to play the 3, I think there is easily room for both...

PG Devon Dotson
SG Romeo Langford (or Quentin Grimes)
SF Zion Williamson
PF Silvio De Sousa
C David McCormack

If KU lands something like that, or even close to that, in the 2018 recruiting class, you're talking about the potential for an all-time great class.
