Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby comments on college basketball corruption trial


Kansas City, Mo. — Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby fielded several questions regarding the federal trial on corruption in college basketball on Wednesday morning at Sprint Center, site of Big 12 basketball media day.

With reigning conference champion and national preseason No. 1 Kansas often coming up during the trial the past couple of weeks, Bowlsby was asked about possible ramifications for KU, the timetable for the NCAA looking into the matters addressed in federal court and how much of a black eye this has been for college basketball.

While Bowlsby said he had spoken with both KU basketball coach Bill Self and athletic director Jeff Long, the commissioner stated they weren’t at liberty to share a lot of information.

Good grief...I know reports have a job to do...but does common sense have to be completely absent from doing that job? It's been well documented that KU and KU officials won't comment until the trial is does he really think that Bob and Coach Self are going to have a heart to heart conversation before then? So much so that you ask the same question 2 or 3 times?

People who deal with the press in their jobs...God bless them...I couldn't do it without losing my mind. Yes there is such a thing as a dumb question. Period.
