KU piled it on Thursday night against Central Arkansas, in part thanks to solid contributions from sophomore forwards Marcus and Markieff Morris.

"But it is good though, to give our main players who play the majority of minutes some rest. So that's why we jump out on teams like this." - Thomas Robinson
This disappoints me. They should be "jumping out on teams" every game. Whether Sherron, Cole, Tyshawn, Reed or the twins are in the game or out of the game. Just because Thomas is a freshmen doesn't mean that he should hold himself back from playing at the level that Aldrich or the twins play at. He has massive potential. To be honest I think he has more potential than the twins did last year. And who knows what games this year a couple of those guys playing major minutes are going to be injured or just plain off their game. He shouldn't be looking at his roll as just relieving starters but actually leaving it all on the court and going hard every time he touches the ball. Not saying that he is unconfident in his skills, I'm just saying starter or bench he needs to consider himself just as important and able to make an impact.
I remember when we jumped out on every single team on every single night. It wasn't just something to do while you were kicking around a tomato can, however, sometimes you would really prefer to not have fans/players lose interest in the game and completely embarrass the opposing team.
Personally I enjoy watching our future get some playing time even if they're only experience is being up by 30 its still productive. Bill still coaches them as if we're playing from behind and they're our starters, at least act like its important when your out there not just out there to preserve precious starters' legs.
I think you are reading WAY too much into Robinson's comment.
I thought he means that's why they jumped out to a lead like this, not to this kind of team.
I agree with with milehigh, CRIMSON.
