Report: Kansas' Bill Self, Kurtis Townsend avoid off-campus recruiting amid NCAA probe

The article didn't really explain what advantage this provides to KU. What are they hoping to gain by having HCBS stay off recruiting? Could someone please explain it?

Also, it's unconscionable that this investigation isn't resolved. KU has already served a de facto punishment simply by allowing this could to linger over their program for so long.

Danny Manning joins Louisville basketball staff as assistant coach

Great for Danny. Personally, I don't want Danny Manning as a coach at KU. He is not the guy for the head job after Self. He is fine as a recruiter and a big man coach, but that's it.

'The 2022 Miracle' - National champion Jayhawks rode balance, team-first mentality to NCAA title

I am not a fan of pushing the "miracle" moniker on this team. I really like the "Comeback Kids" as a nickname for them. This team won as a team. They were just a bunch of scrappy kids that believed they could no matter what. They did this all season long, and they did it when it was all on the line.

Kansas senior David McCormack not leaning either way as he awaits feedback to make stay-or-go decision

I can't imagine he will stay. Going out on top is very special. As much as I like to believe we can repeat, that's a long shot. He should go make some money in Europe, or see if he can get on the roster of an NBA team. Who knows? Maybe he could develop into a very good role player in the NBA?

Examining the case for adding Kansas forward David McCormack's name and number to the Allen Fieldhouse rafters

My vote is no. I don't get a vote and no one asked. A no vote takes nothing away from his career or his impact. I just think we need to keep that bar very high. This is KU. We don't need to give out participation trophies to everyone. Hanging a jersey means that player was one of the all-time legends to play at the university. Anyone who is on a championship team is a legend, but I don't think the case can be made that DMac is an all-time KU legend. If he is, then we need to hang Braun and Remy's jersey as well.

Kansas' Ochai Agbaji named NCAA Tournament's most outstanding player

Someone had to win the award. Och is the best player with the highest ceiling on the team, but it was truly a team effort all 6 games. Hard to choose, but they just went with the best player on the winning team, not necessarily who made the most impact. Remy and Dmac have a good case for truly being the MVP. But, as Och said, who cares, they won a Naty!

Toughness Title: Stellar second half leads Kansas past North Carolina 72-69 for program's sixth national championship

Obiter Dictum:

-The Comeback Kids win the title! Rock Chalk from NYC!

-I guess maybe we shouldn't fire Coach Self?

-Kansas was like an engine with the timing belt not calibrated. The engine was fine and powerful, it just was not working correctly. That obviously changed in the second half.

-What's up with the NCAA guy saying "Kansas City Jayhawks?"

-What's up with Charles B not knowing how to pronounce Braun?

-Give credit to these players, they really did believe they could win, even at half time.

-Give credit to HCBS for making adjustments at the half that actually worked, like posting Braun, and pulling DMac out of the lane for Agbaji could drive without running into the wall named Bacot.

-Let's also give credit to a very special UNC team. Those guys did something amazing and they should be proud of the season they had. Much respect.

-KU won this game as a team. So many important shots, steal, and passes. Yes, Agbaji is a star, but look at the box score. This was an balanced of a team win as we have had. 5 players between 12-14 points.

-It's hard not to like this team, such a great group. Congrats on the championship!

Game Day Breakdown: No. 1 seed Kansas basketball vs. No 8 seed North Carolina - 2022 National Championship Game

Let's go Hawks!

UNC plays 5 deep, and their center is injured. We need to pound inside and dribble and drive to get them in foul trouble. We don't have to make every shot or shoot lights out, we just need to lock in on defense (especially from 3), play fast, and treat every possession as valuable. We may win ugly, we may win by a lot, but I am confident that KU will win.

Hope to see you all in the comments section tomorrow celebrating a win!

Soaking it all in: How Kansas guard Remy Martin is embracing every second of KU's deep tourney run

Maybe. But remember during the Creighton game he actually signaled to HCBS to come out of the game for a breather. He plays at such a fast pace, and hasn't had all the benefit of full basketball games/practice for February that it is fine for him to come off the bench.

I have full confidence that HCBS knows how to do this.
