KU officials can't say whether KU officially told NCAA it doesn't see Adidas' Gassnola as a booster

Wrong on all accounts...the NCAA left DeSousa in limbo for months..all they had to do was give a ruling..yet they ignored him while he sat on the bench not knowing what was going on...it wasn't KU that offered the NCAA a carrot by choosing to label him a booster in exchange for a ruling...it was the NCAA demanding they do that just to even consider a ruling...that's entrapment or least close to it...I chose to look at it logical while you chose gloom and doom..if we listened to your apocalyptic conclusions we'd all demand Self fired,the program shut down and AFH burned to the ground....you keep predicting destruction while the rest of us display a little faith...class dismissed

KU officials can't say whether KU officially told NCAA it doesn't see Adidas' Gassnola as a booster

The NCAA forced KU to label him a booster just so they would even consider a ruling on DeSousa..that's entrapment and that's illegal...that's basically having a judge/lawyer force you to accept a plea deal for a crime you know you didn't commit just to even have a chance for a trial...by this definition every shoe company is a booster since most of the kids who are in the Nike AAU circuit end up going to Nike schools..same for Adidas...the universities only have so much control over what their sponsors do..if an employee does what Gassnola did and conceals to a point where it takes the FBI coming in to uncover it, then the universities shouldn't pay a price for that..by that logic the parent of every killer or criminal should be in prison

KU argues with NCAA that Adidas isn't a booster, but sends out flyer to local businesses suggesting otherwise

This seems like they are just trying to cover their own @$$ in light of the Adidas issue..even a player being given a free meal at a Lawrence restaurant will trigger a violation..I think they just want to prevent that

I think people are making more of this than what it really is...IMO, KU is doing this to prevent any future situations..this is no different than my apartment complex sending out flyers to remind residents not to block aisle..even though its in the lease, they still need to remind people from time to time..even a taco bell manager giving players a free lunch can be labeled a violation ...

4-star big man Gethro Muscadin picks Kansas

Texas tech nearly won a NC last season with a bunch of transfers and "diamonds in the rough"..their best player Culver was a 3 star player when he arrived in college...them the 2012 NC runner up team for KU..that team certainly wasn't loaded with OAD talent and high rated HS prospects..

This is not exactly true ....look at Texas tech last season...their best player was Culver..I believe he was only a 3 star prospect when he arrived in college..the rest of the team was made up of transfers and kids who I'm sure didn't crack the top 60 in the HS rankings..they came within a Hunter game tying 3 of winning the NC..are you saying Self is an inferior coach compared to Beard?

To be fair, its not always easy to tell which kids are gonna be OAD..no one saw Embiid being OAD when he came to KU, but he was....nothing wrong with mixing a OAD like Jackson in with veterans..but Self has really never built his teams to rely most on OAD kids
