Prep Oubre expected to announce today

He may only plan on signing 3, but he needs to prepare for the 2014 class being up to 6 deep. Black is gone for sure, Wiggins is 99.99% gone, Selden is quickly becoming a serious OAD candidate, Embiid is going to be a high lottery pick whenever he leaves (possibly after this year), and if Oubre commits to KU like a lot believe, there's a legitimate chance of a transfer. Self may hope he has just a 3 man 2014 class, but the reality is Self needs to prepare for up to a 6 man class so he doesn't get caught with his pants down like he did with the 2011 class when he thought Selby and the Morris twins would return and didn't and Bill had nothing waiting in the wings that year.

Prep Oubre expected to announce today

Okafor and Jones are not coming to KU because Bill Self won't bench senior Tharpe for ANY freshman. If KU signes a PG in this class (not a top priority this year), it will be a 4 star kid who needs a year or two before Bill Self hands him the keys.

KU to look into 'ways to improve' procedures for Late Night

There are ways around that. If you're familiar with how Flash Tickets work, that's a very simple way around people selling Late Night tickets. If you're not familiar with how they work, when a person buys a flash ticket, the ticket is sent to the person's credit card and the credit card used to buy a ticket is swiped at the entrance to gain admission. The way this would work for Late Night would be a person has to register for the lottery with a credit card (put a limit on the number of tickets a person can register for) and then the family has to use the credit card registered with to gain admission.

KU-Oklahoma to kick off at 2:30 p.m., Oct. 19

The 1984 team wasn't bad, they were by no means great, but they weren't bad either. They were 5-6 overall and 4-3 in Big 8 play, not exactly a bad season and any of us would take a similar season right now.

KU to look into 'ways to improve' procedures for Late Night

Keep it free, but make people register for a ticket by a certain date and then do a lottery system for who gets admission. You can also have people wait outside that don't have a ticket and those people get in if they are some no shows because there are always going to be a handful of no shows for whatever reason. You also need to have a couple of security guards at every entrance just to keep things from getting out of hand like it did Friday.

I also believe part of the problem was the weekend that Late Night was on. At least while I was a student at KU, Late Night was always the Friday during Fall Break so that greatly reduced the number of students on campus for Late Night and the ones stuck on campus weren't really basketball fans. This year, Late Night was Homecoming weekend so all the students are on campus and able to attend an event they haven't historically been in town for.

Monday Rewind - Texas Tech: KU O-Line in need of drastic improvement

Matt, any chance Weis just decides to start playing some of the younger OLinemen to start building their chemistry and getting them game experience for the future since the OLine can't really get much worse than it is now.

Kansas hoops recruit Kelly Oubre feels ‘love’

Losing 5 is very possible with Wiggins, Selden, and Embiid jumping, Black graduating, and if KU signs Oubre, White or Greene transfers.

ESPN has D'Angelo Russell ahead of Vaughn, but Vaughn is the top SG on Rivals.

Riggle, wiggles highlight ‘Night

Players talk about wanting to play together a lot, but it doesn't always happen. I do think Okafor and Jones will be a package deal, but I don't think Alexander and Lyle are tied at the hip.
