Painful reminders: A look at Bill Self’s saddest setbacks

And Mr. Newell, I cannot believe you are a part of this. OK, after thinking about it, I guess you have to do what your boss tells you to do. Sorry for you, because most of the time your writing and insight are great. Mr. Bedore, were you seriously on board with this, or was this all Keegan? Your an old fart like me, so I would think you should have some input. Or at least you should.

Painful reminders: A look at Bill Self’s saddest setbacks

Douche, Douche, Douche and Douche, Is this all your minds can come up with to write about this summer? Read the comments. Not a lot of support here for any of you. Surely all of you can do better than this. By the way Mr. Tait, keep writing about football. Don't get drug into douche articles like this.

Bill Self to visit nation’s top-ranked preps

That is a good thought, and maybe it is an excuse. And for some, even if they are successful, some people have only so much to give. They do it until they cannot do it anymore, for whatever reason. For the sake of my children and others in our community, I appreciate those who have given so much and like you said, are not compensated properly.

AC, having been a dyed in the wool, sold out for my team Jahawk fan since my Dad first took me to a KU game in the mid 70's. I believe I have a little bit of insight into the program and the development of the Jayhawks under TO, LB, RW and HCBS. I would never profess to be an expert or an insider. I have raised two boys that cried when the Jayhawks played their final game each year with the exception of two incredible years. Their mother does not define that as one of my finest traits, but I digress, I am what I am. I have attended a number of games over the years and only missed a handful of others, either on TV or Radio. We, as a Jayhawk Nation have been blessed by a program with coaches who have been more concerned by the good of the program and the team. And I believe, the Jayhawks have been more successful, and will be going forward, by continuing to subscribe to this school of thought. I believe there are few, if any players that leave HCBS's program that are sorry that they chose to play there. I am proud to be a Jayhawk and always will be.

Bill Self to visit nation’s top-ranked preps

About 10 years ago when my youngest son was in middle school, I asked our local high school Guidance Counselor and a very respected man in our community, (who had previousley been the head varsity football coach for over 15 years with two state titles and had one of the best winning percentages in the state for his career, and was not even close to retirement age). So I asked him, "why did you step down as the head football coach", and he said "the kids are not the same, they don't learn respect at home and when they get into high school, I can't teach that to them and also coach football. I love what I do and I love teaching the kids, but the respect is gone and I just can't deal with that anymore." Scenarios like his are sad, and a real shame. They most likely have occured all over this country. Sign of the times, our culture, or to be politically correct, we must let young people figure things out and make their own choices.

Unfortunately in this day and age of instant gratification, selfishness and it's all about me mentality. Many kids grow up believing that they are more important than anyone or anything else. Thirty years ago if a kid had that attitude they most likely did not learn it at home. If they brought it to class or to practice, their teacher or coach wouldn't hesitate to put them in their place and attempt to teach them what is really important. We fast forward 30 years and now it's the parent who is instilling this thought process in their children. Sports and life in general would be much better off without the participation of these individuals, but that is not likely to change anytime soon. HCBS is wise enough to determine whether a player is more likely to help his team or hurt it. Sometime it is just the parent with this thought process and fortunately their child has not allowed it to change them. Some of these players with parents who make these comments to the media probably just wish they would be quiet and quit embarrassing them.
