Self offering insiders’ view

If I were attending this camp I would dominate. From my stellar outside shooting, to my won't-be-denied aggressiviness when taking it to the rack, my scoring game is spectacular. But really, I'm a passer at heart. I love an assist more than a dunk. I've got great court vision and I really understand the game. But if my team needs to me to score, I can and will. You'd think that with an arsenal of offensive skills like that, I might be a lazy defender. Nothing could be further from the truth. I take great pride in my defense. I deny my man the ball, double-team when the ball goes into the post, and get a lot of steals, which lead to my lightning-fast transition game. I'm a complete player and a consumate teammate. I keep everyone loose, but focused on the bench and in the locker room. I'm a national merit scholar and work with troubled youth. I'll do whatever it takes to make me and those around me more successful.

Take-away: Jayhawks didn’t quit

Agree with stupidmichael above. I know the players are hurting, but they gave me so much joy this season, that all I feel is happiness. Happiness at getting to see those guys mature and develop and learn to play with such fierce pride. Thanks to all involved with the program for a wild ride. Only one team in the nation had a better season than KU and that was UK, who was the best team in college basketball this season. And it took the best to beat us. That's something to take pride in too.

Kansas underdog … on paper

I don't remember a KU team ever getting so little respect. I'm not complaining; we play the faux-underdog well, But it's as if everyone in the country had forgotten we're second in wins, all-time. (OK, I am complaining)
I get it that UK has been ranked #1 most of the season and plays with five-six nba players. But how many KU teams, loaded with nba players,have lost in the first round? To much less talented teams than this year's KU squad.
I know we're gonna win and I can't wait.

It's showtime: Jayhawks seek revenge in tonight’s title game

I know you appologized, but please don't mention politics on a sports board.
I don't think you'd enjoy me comparing President Bush to Calipari/Kentucky.

Kansas underdog … on paper

Just saw on espn that Withey is two blocks short of tying Noah's record for the ncaa tournement.
Also, Dick V is picking UK. That's great news for us. When will he learn?

KU finds the right fit with strength and conditioning coach Andrea Hudy

I recently read (can't remember if it was here or another site) a story where a recruit mentioned Coach Hudy by name as a reason he was considering KU. Don't know that I've ever seen a strenght and conditioning coach mentioned by a recruit in that way.

Also, “She transformed me from a slow white guy to a not-as-slow white guy,” Teahan joked, is a very funny quote and probably really true.

I think you're right about the article, but the question at today's presser used the words, high mid major.

It's showtime: Jayhawks seek revenge in tonight’s title game

Just watched the full press conference from today on ncaa.org. Some guy asked hcbs what he thought about KU being called a high mid-major. (I think he was referring to a story on cbssports.com) He handled the question with class, as usual.
But how can you call the second-winningest program in college basketball a high mid major?
How can the team the holds the record for most wins in a six year period be a high mid major?
I know those columnists are under pressure to find a new slant for an article, but that just seems like ignorance.
