Sophomore guard Charlie Moore to transfer from KU

I think Garrett is one of the problems...not with his effort...but he has a tendency to play without thinking...an unpredictable player...you never know what he is going to do...a lot like Vick....very difficult to coach and horrible for establishing team chemistry.

Breaking down the future of KU's basketball roster

These guys will improve a lot over the summer......but they really do need to be SERIOUS gym rats...meaning...they have to do it unsupervised and not need anyone to motivate them...1000 free throws a day...10 sets of 100...they need to not only catch and shoot..but be able to shoot 3's off the dribble...and the ..guys..need to learn how to box out on every shot...not just the big guys...but boxing out on the long rebounds off of missed 3's.....Duke UCF Game..we all watched the coaches son...the star...miss an alley oop late..and a tip in late....but his most glaring mistake...was when he did not box out on the Duke player...and that lost the game ...its ..the little things...free throws...boxing out...50/50 balls...disrupting passing lanes..getting up underneath guys.....knowing what the player you are going against likes to do and taking that away....those are the things ..that win championships....talent can only get you so far...coaching can put you into a position to be successful...but its the details......the little stuff... that will determine if you are a Champion.... or just another wannabee.....if these kids want to be WINNERS...then they will do these things without thinking...it becomes part of their makeup...

Key Jayhawks not focused on discussing their futures at Kansas

The Key Jayhawk is Coach Bill Self.....BYU is very interested in Coach and have incredibly deep pockets....Coach likes Utah......who knows...my hope was that he would stay as long as Coach Allen and rewrite the record books here in Lawrence...but if personalities clash with administrators....if The suits try to put to many governors on the program...if they begin to micromanage too much...it might drive Coach away and he is our greatest ASSET...all the money that comes into the school has to do with basketball exposure...who would you replace him with...only a handful have the stature to take over...I think Coach is the best coach in college basketball...the very best....but if you must replace...Mark Few...Jay Wright....Coach Cal...maybe a Brad Stevens....would be my only choices....there are not any other coaches out there better than Coach...I think Coach is better than Coach K and Roy boy.....in my opinion....do whatever you have to do to cover for anything that may have happened and do everything to keep Coach here...He is the BIGGEST MAN ON CAMPUS and has been for a long time...Do not allow a hiccup to destroy everything..

Notebook: KU coach Bill Self on season: ‘I’m really proud of our guys’

I really liked this group....unfortunately the chemistry never was quite right...The Vick thing...Garrett ..is a good player.... but never knew what he was going to do...Coach knows what we need for next year...we were exposed in many ways...we need speed...we need sharp shooters..we need high energy guys..guys with a motor...and guys that can get up under people on the perimeter...my guess is..we will lose a lot of our guys to professional basketball on all continents from this team...so Coach will again need to reload and next years team will have limited leadership returning....then there is the Question about the recruiting and that whole mess and how that translates to future prospects' living room...etc...we are going to receive some kind of penalty...so what we have seen on the court this year may last for a couple more years.....lets look at the positives...we made the NCAA Tournament...we played in the Big 12 Championship game and we at times played well...on the negative...we were run out of buildings on a few occasions..run over by faster quicker teams.....its the first time in the Self era that has ever happened in my memory...embarrassing to perfectly honest about it.......the guys that are staying..... need to become SERIOUS gym rats.......all day every day..unsupervised ...1000 free throws a day...learn how to play smothering perimeter defense and practice shooting off the dribble...all the fundamentals..etc...learn from the lessons this season illuminated.....Enjoyed watching this group and look forward to next year!
