A meaningless exercise if I ever saw one. Things a little slow sports news-wise??

Meaningless perhaps, but this was asked for and I for one am happy to see it. The big guy leading the floor burn category impresses me the most!

Is KUSports.com not able to access the actual game footage to show highlights, like a sportscenter clip? I just wonder why the highlights shown are cell phone video.

Dunks & Floor Burns need to be broken down to D/min or FB/min. Now that Jesse is gone, maybe Matt can help with that, or get the new guy.

A link to the previous stat column would be good also. Nice series. Definitely cool to break out the obscure stats.

It'd be even better to have a bit more meat on the bones. Maybe even a video montage for something like Tarik's team leading 5 charges taken. That's got to be among the most in the nation this year, especially C/min.

Awesome idea for a video montage of charges. It would be fun to see the same with floor burns and blocks. Dunks I don't care so much about. You can see them anywhere.
