KU football is a sleeping giant and always has been - beems

If LHC Bill Snyder had been hired at KU years ago, we'd have a national championship in football and a couple more BCS bowls. - beems

X and Dean looked pretty good. Diarra not bad. Some others, not so much.

Depth could be a concern, when oscar started subbing it was not good.

Sample size is extremely limited through only 2 exhibition games, but Diarra might be good.

I having a great day.  Big Lutheran celebration and potluck at Church
  Sitting in the yard digesting food like a big bloated python snake.  Dreaming about basketball and enjoying fan's stats.  I think Dee-ara $ is going to be good and bring back the fun.  This kid has joy 2hen he plays,  and his hair ...... fun.  He and Brown are buds.  It is good to have 5 quality guards.  I can't wait.

I know he's been a skeptic, but I just want to know what Guest thinks of this team so far. Maybe a decent group in Sneed, Wade, Brown, Stokes, and Diarra. :dunno:

This is way too long for most of you but this is what I think so far.  (Reno, Sorry I can not remember the nicnames)
1.  Claws is more aggressvie on offense and rebounding.  Great game today except for a couple of times he did not finish at the rim.  Like to see more rebounds than he got today but I think that was the nature of todays game.  Big season ahead if he stays this agressive. 
2.  Sneed played great today in all aspects, offense, defense and rebounding.  All good but I'll be watching to see how consistent he is.
3.  Brown had a lot of uncharacteristic turnovers today but has fixed his shooting form.  He is all league on defense now and will make an all league team if he hits shots from range on a consistent basis.  Had some nice assists today.
4.   Diarra looks really good so far.  Want to see him against some high level competition before getting too excited.
5.  Wainright is going to have a fairly big role playing defense and rebounding.  If he can hit some threes it will be a big help.
6.  Mawien has a lot of skills and will be provide some points, rebounding and rim protection.
7.  So far Sallah has not impressed me.
8.  Shadd can block shots and rebound and will get some minutes.  I need to see more of him and Stockard to form an opinion on how much they can help us this year,  At least they are some insurance in case of injuries. 
9.  Need to see more of Mcquirl.  Frazier says he is a knock down shooter so we'll see.
10.  Patrick had an off day today on defense and ball handling.  Need to see more but he may be limited to helping us against zones and sagging man defenses.
11.  Stokes did not play due to a wisdom tooth but I want to see if he cuts down on turnovers over last year.

First string looked really good today so overall, quite a few positives but we'll have to see more.

Thanks for that breakdown.

I see rebounding and defense as the biggest concerns. I think this team has potential to score at a decent rate.

I'm not sure what my verdict is after two exhibition games so I'm sure I'll change it by Christmas and again half way through the Big 12 season.

Attempting to watch that on WatchESPN was rough, attempting to watch it on the new K-State app was worse.

These games used to be on the new version ESPN Full Court but this one wasn't, I hope this isn't the case all year.

We haven’t been this aggressive offensively in a while.

They are wrong.  Like 5th or higher.  Bigs meats looked good to me in the MSU EXHIBITION.  What excites me is depth and fun watching Sneed and Diarra.  With them the.pressure should.be off of Claws.

Its more likely we finished lets say 6th instead of 10th. The majority of the league is in the same boat. Hell 2 games separate 4th from 10th. Most of the leagues projections are based on assumed 0 values and lot of those assumptions are going to be wrong. Whole league is a mess trying to predict is rough ridin' insane.
