Assistant football coach offices equipped with revolving doors at Kansas

From this table it looks as though Meacham's twin brother was brought on as WR coach so Doug could focus on the OC duties.

Some hope for Daylon Charlot's future with Kansas

Wrong. ALL coaches need to say certain things, or avoid saying them. Try again

NCAA basketball coaches, Adidas executive among 10 charged in bribe scheme

Don't think for a moment that this is over. They have people in cuffs who will undoubtedly make deals for leniency. As rampant as this system is today I'm pretty sure this is just the beginning of the heads that will roll.

Self will seek to fill scholarship opened up by Whitman departure

There was another scholly because they gave it to Whitman. There would be no reason at all to boot Coleby for Whitman. Coleby showed he can contribute some positive minutes providing everything you want of your backup bigs. You never know what you will get out of a grad transfer. Too risky a swap. Don't think it was about getting rid of Coleby because that just makes no sense.

Productive summer: Svi Mykhailiuk leads FIBA U20 European Championship in scoring

My goodness. I know this is U20 and not kids from US, but the difference in skill level is crazy. I thought the gap had been closed considerably since the turn of the century, but I don't anymore. Fundamentals like dribbling, defense... wow. I certainly expect Svi to own this event. I even consider his numbers to be disappointing given what I saw here.

Bitter end: Shots don't fall, Jayhawks dropped in Elite Eight against Oregon

Come on, Joe. Let's not try and over analyze this. Were you the only one who wasn't laughing to hear Altman was representing Frank Mason in their preparation? Instead of noting how ridiculous it would be for a man who's athletic days have long been finished to try and recreate the capabilities of a NPOY, you arrive at a conclusion about how he prepares his kids with a "hands-on" approach instead of the "hands-off" approach of Self. Gonna give you some room to digest what you just did.

You use pretty obvious speculation to say that Self didn't prepare his kids and Altman did. There is nothing to support this. I didn't see any lack of intensity, desire, or effort in this game, which, by the way, have nothing to do with the "hands-on" approach that you somehow praised Altman for. Both teams were getting after it, one just began making shots they could only dream of, and the other could not find their stroke to save their life (or their season). This game came down to threes. It was the biggest single factor in disparity between the two and anything else is a distant 2nd. To try and create another narrative can only call upon non-empirical elements that have as much basis in EMOTION as anything else. Let's be realistic here. Not saying Self is above criticism, but it is sure difficult to make a case for it with anything other than speculation and a pretty shaky cause-effect leap with your Self vs Altman binary.
