Self says Jamari Traylor will play Saturday


Kansas University red-shirt sophomore forward Jamari Traylor will play in Saturday’s KU-TCU game, coach Bill Self said on Thursday night.

Traylor, 6-8, 220 from Chicago, was held out of Monday’s loss at Kansas State because of disciplinary reasons.

Self, who met with Traylor before practice on Thursday, had no comment on the matter Thursday night except to say Traylor would play.

Game time for Saturday’s KU-TCU game is 3 p.m.

This story is a great example of the negative, for the fans, associated with the "no avatar" LJW policy. With the avatars, there would have been a few "insider" post spilling the beans what this was all about. I have always speculated the KU Athletic Department had a hand in the policy change due to the insider information leaking out on this page. I understand Self's position that some things are none of our business but that's life.

Good opportunity for Jamari to get some quality PT Saturday.

See you all at the Jayhawker movie tomorrow night.

Completely agree with you. The information percieved from those seemily in the know or close to the program have certainly stopped.

I would still like to have a hint about what happened... he could have made the difference in that game i feel

That's the purpose of the punishment. Traylor made a mistake and that mistake played a role in KU losing. Traylor has to deal with it.

Bingo and great lesson to learn in the manner in which he learned it. These kids have to understand their off court antics can hurt the team too. It teaches them to think before they act about the consequences of their actions. So, when they suffer, the team suffers too. JTray is well aware of that and his twit made it clear that he will never do "it" again. We all make little mistakes that have short-term consquences and we can recover and move on, if they aren't criminal. No harm done. He didn't do it on national tv in front of a viewing audience. It was a personal mistake, but had some deep ramifications.

Ok, lesson learned...moving along.

Pretty simple to me. We don't need to know everything, just be glad BS disciplines his players.

You know, you really shouldn't shorten Bill Self's name to those two letters. It just looks wrong. No way around it. Just sayin'...

Unless Jamari's transgressions are criminal and therefore public knowledge, there is no need for us to know. He has paid a price that he regrets, do not worry. I expect that he will be working extra hard to earn back his teammates goodwill for being out last game. Late for practice, curfew, skipped classes, does not matter.

Rock Chalk, Jayhawks!!

Interview Traylor after the game Saturday, please.

Like most of you said, we don't need to know what Jamari did. Can you imagine what it must be like to be under the microscope like these players are? I wonder how many times I would have been disciplined when I was at KU - and I was a comparatively good kid.

Suzi, keep up the great work. I believe this is the first time I've ever disagreed with one of your posts.

Like none of us has ever done anything we didn't want anyone else to know.

The only time player suspensions are not divulged to the media is when it is for something bad/criminal and could negatively reflect the program. If it were basketball related, Bill Self would have openly said it. And what Jamari did at The Cave...was bad!
