Calling them crap is a bit much, as they have the best player in the conference. However, if you don't allow them dribble penetration and don't let them spread you out they will struggle to score. As spracne said they can't shoot, unfortunately for them they don't have anyone to dump it inside to for easy buckets either.

I'm going to guess that they went two years because the guardians were being uncooperative and KU were attempting to smoke screen the NCAA with attempting plausible deniability. This doesn't appear to be a simple case of a kid receiving impermissible benefits from a booster. This is the guardians, multiple schools, and intermediaries shopping services, I think he's lucky to have any eligibility at all.

They are going to turn on Self so fast. He's also too good of a coach to take it. When he bounces anything could happen. We could very likely be looking at the end of a very elite run for KU bball. They will never be sustained bad/ mediocre, but they will certainly regress to the mean at some point and I think it will be sooner than later.

Will be hilarious.

The odds that KU's next coach can extend the run of 3 coaches that last 35 years are a little on the long side.   Not saying it couldn't happen, but I don't see anybody out there like Bill Self that's going to be available.

I'm Seff I'd bolt, he can't do anything more for KU fans, some of whom are losing their damn minds even though they're still in contention for another Dr. Pepper.

I think Self is probably in a similar boat to Stoops.  Raised the expectations for an entitled fanbase to the point that they want him fired every time he loses a game.  Conference championships are no longer enough.  He hasn't threatened to leave enough to keep the fanbase from taking him for granted.

Add in NCAA violations coming down for Self and he'll be getting out soon.  No reason to put up with this crap when he can take another job that is just as good, be it this season or "retiring" and picking his spot later.

At this point there's no justifiable basketball reason to think that they will win the league. They don't have anything close to the best talent, they can't win on the road, and they're losing scholarship players every other day. I'd get freaking out that they'd make up 2 games with 8 to play if they had the talent to do so. If K-State goes 5-4, they have to go 6-2 to tie, that's preposterous.

I expect ku will at least tie for the league, their remaining schedule is a combination of at home and teams that suck on the road.  12-6 to get a piece of first maybe 13-5

I too saw their remaining schedule and let out a sigh.

You're forgetting the fact that we're mediocre, though.

what games look like L's to you, I see lots on KSU schedule

They've already lost to Arizona State, Texas, and West Virginia, and close home wins with New Mexico State and Stanford. You're and anyone else are rough ridin' fools if you think any game on their schedule is automatic.

Also you can think we'd lose every game on our schedule and KU still wouldn't be favorites to win the league. I'm starting to get more than mildly annoyed at you fuckers and your jinxes and curses bullshit. You don't want to think we're going to win the league, fine, flood aggie will.

So what? Even if the league is shitty, it seems rough ridin' stupid to insist the team current in fifth place is going to all of a sudden run a train on said shitty league when they have a loss to the worst team in the league and they can't keep players in the line up.

I forgot they already had 4 losses.  Honestly going 6-2 in the back half seems impossible. That would be 12-6 and wouldn’t be enough to even tie. I think we can officially say the streak is over.

They're not even going to make the final four.

I got a feeling they're going to end up with a 3seed and chit their pants in either the second round or sweet 16

I umm, don't think they have any idea how the tourney or seeding actually works.

Not using the timeout is fine with me until the possession was completely going to crap.  They could have called the timeout with 4 seconds left and drawn something up halfway decent while their player panicked at the elbow.

Post by: cas4ksu on February 12, 2019, 01:07:15 PM
They should have got Bane the ball in the final minute and a half. Dixon let that one get completely away from him. Bad job by him.

Both teams also left a ton of opportunity at the FT line. KU must have missed 3 or more front ends of 1 and 1's and TCU was nearly as bad in the double bonus.

I agree but I'm not sure how good the play would have been. They were scoring by getting KU spread and scrambling to recover on help, there wasn't time for that. I really don't think much of Alex Robinson.

Why they just run by and ignore him is mind blowing.

Fair.  So the masters is from UT?  From my own experience, grad students who transfer between schools of the same conference have a sort of "code".

The school they really respect(First degree), then kind of a bandwagoney thing with their second school, depending on how good they are at sports.  You fit a pretty lol category.  I don't remember reading ANYTHING about "your horns" during football season.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lightfoot is an interesting player to me. He apparently doesn’t get a lot of minutes and his stats aren’t great but for whatever reason I feel like he’s always there to make the plays that really get under my skin.

What I’m saying is he’s probably gonna go off tomorrow.

He is their blue collar player.  Probably best rebounder per minute on their team.
And he'll probably go 4-5 from behind the arc or some crazy crap like that.

General long weekend in KC observo's:

1.  Tremendous amount of Rock Chalkers out and about and clearly not paying any attention to the KU vs Okie Lite game.   Given up on the season already?

2.  KU side of the family (2 actually attended KU out of 10 plus) openly cheering for Baylor (not gE'ing). 

3.  Lots of talk about KU recruiting, nary a mention of the Adidas issue.   Conversed with an EMAW cousin (senior executive at well known KC based company, lots of Rock Chalkers report to him) and it was decided that nary a  mention of the FBI issue would be made out of fear of disrupting a joyous family event and having the KU side of the family leave angry and early.   It's our usual tact to only speak of KU in the most glowing of terms or nod approvingly as the KU side of the family prattles on about the glory of KU basketball (not gE'ing)

If you're in the DFW area, get tickets to that game. Root your heart for the Frogs...or Horned Frogs, whatever. Stupid mascot. Cheer them on like you've never cheered before. Figure out who's on their roster and start learning their chants. Bring an airgun to the game and start sounding it off when K-State players are at the free-throw line or about to shoot a jumper. Bring in bricks and throw them at Weber every time he acts like he can walk anywhere on the court during the game. Get arrested. We'll start a GoFundMe page to pay your legal

After all the greasy turds we dropped this year, if we had somehow backed into another conference title in spite of all the injuries and suspensions and whatnot, I would have almost felt sorry for the rest of the conference. The fact that we even had a chance was making me wonder whether the conference as a whole is unworthy of our program.

Quote
It’s incredible. Outside of that Iowa State game, no one has gone off on K-State. Yeah, they’re good defensively but there are still open shots out there. Everyone just happens to brick them when playing K-State. Just the way the cookie crumbles this year I guess.

KU signed their first contract with Adidas in Self's second season.  That's when Self won his first Dr. Pepper.

The streak ended when the Adidas relationship hit a little snag.

Coincidence? 

Great run, but the gig is up.  Bill Self would do best to take that NCAA job, because if he sticks around, and he can't leverage Adidas anymore on the recruiting trail.   KU T-Shirt Nation is going to eat that dude alive.

A comparison of 1964-75 UCLA teams to current era schools is silly.

Those UCLA teams only had to win 2 games to advance to a Final Four and they got to stay near West Coast playing the likes of Long Beach State, Santa Clara U, U of San Francisco (way after their Bill Russell , K.C. Jones teams), Utah State and Pacific U to advance to a Final Four.

Well, Mizzou is still their big rival.   It was so huge back in the day that just about every year 10's of thousands of fans would arrive and stay at the football games dressed looking exactly like metal bleachers.

The last football game in the HUGE rivalry was played in front of 30,000 empty seats at Arrowhead Stadium, and would have left 5,000 empty seats had the game been played in Lawrence, and 20,000 empty seats had the game been played in Columbia.

We'll see how his workouts go, I guess. I can't find dude in any mocks. The only recently updated scouting report says this:
"There are three concerns NBA teams have with Lawson. One, he is undersized to play the 4 or 5 in today’s NBA. Secondly, he is not a good enough jump shooter to space the floor. Lastly, he will be 22 when the next NBA season begins. A perfect comparison for Lawson is Paul Millsap. In Millsap’s final year at Louisiana Tech, he averaged 19.6 points and 13.3 rebounds per game on a 57.8/62.3/0 split. As you can see, Millsap made it to the NBA without any three point shot at all. Lawson does not have that luxury. Lawson is listed at 6’9” 230, while Millsap was listed at 6’8” 245. For Lawson to catch on with an NBA team, he will not only need to be an average three point shooter, but he will have to competently guard opposing power forwards and be an above average rebounder."

Couple that with what oscar Pearl said:

"Oh, I love Dedric," Pearl told reporters. "He's a pro. He's got an old-school game, scores inside and out. He's got to work a little bit defensively, get a little stronger, move a little bit better, but he's got a great future. I'm happy for him."

It looks right now that getting drafted is far from a sure thing. If he comes back he's going to be the conference POY.

His knocks are size, strength, and age as far as I can tell.  Two of those things won't improve with another year.  He could improve strength but I'm sure NBA teams would rather have him in their programs to do that.  I think he is a pretty safe bet to get drafted and at least some of your mocks haven't updated to include him yet.

Reminds me more of TJ Warren than Millsap.

That deal is loaded with merch for athletes.  Adidas gets full retail value credit for merch given to athletes, which really inflates the value of the deal.  Maybe Adidas is coming in with a stronger mix of cash, making "cooperation" on the payoff investigation a little easier.

That is standard operating procedure for their industry.  Under Armour (UCLA), NIKE (tOSU) and again adidas (Washington) all have a similar merchandise valuation included in those contracts.

Honestly, I have no clue. I'm not sure we played any potentially ineligible players other than SDS, and he's already been punished. So, I dont think vacating wins is on the table. The only thing that will really bother me would be a post-season ban. That would suck. Would be funny if they just give Townsend a lifetime ban and call it a day.

I have to note that watching my streaming TV service, the commercials that are fed to me are literally 33% KU hoops tickets commercials. 

So I do have to give the KU  AD's office credit for tossing money out there to try and sell tickets to those in the region (I live in Topeka).  However, the marketing is a bit ineffective to aim it at me.

No details on what was in the response

The NCAA's response to Kansas is 92 pages long, per Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde. The response should allow the NCAA to set a date for an infractions committee hearing, and the case could possibly be completed by the beginning of the 2020–21 season.
Title: Re: KU Basketball is Hurting
Post by: EMAWzifried on May 07, 2020, 05:28:49 PM
From Tait's LJWorld Story:

•The violations alleged to have taken place within the men’s basketball program, the NCAA argued, are “of the kind that significantly undermine and threaten the NCAA collegiate model.” Enforcement staff also took issue with KU not conceding that any Level I violations took place, saying the university was “indifferent” to how the alleged conduct may have adversely affected schools who recruited players in line with NCAA rules.

“The institution’s lack of timely cooperation and failure to acknowledge any responsibility for the alleged Level I violations are in direct contradiction to both the spirit and charge of the Commission and to the expectations of the membership,” the NCAA’s response said.

• (Re: KU's argument Adidas sleazeball T.J. Gassnola was not a school booster) In its response this week, however, the NCAA took to task that argument. NCAA rules, the enforcement staff argued, make it clear that athletic departments are responsible for the actions of their boosters. What’s more, the NCAA said, case precedent has well established that shoe companies that have marketing contracts with a university are a booster of that university.

When KU responded to the Notice of Allegations on March 5, it argued that the concept of an apparel company being a booster and representative of the university’s athletic interest was “novel.”

In its response, NCAA enforcement staff criticized how close KU allowed Gassnola to get to the “storied basketball program” and said KU ignored “red flags” for years which should have indicated that KU’s compliance staff needed to monitor his activities.

The university, the NCAA said, “failed to control and monitor the relationship between Adidas’ representatives with its storied men’s basketball program,” even if Gassnola was acting in his own interests — as KU has argued.

“This failure led to T.J. Gassnola, a convicted criminal and then Adidas outside consultant, having unfiltered access to the men’s basketball program and allowed for Gassnola and Adidas to profoundly influence the institution’s recruitment of elite men’s basketball student-athletes,” the NCAA said.

The NCAA says Self knew in 2012 that Gassnola and his AAU basketball team had been sanctioned by the NCAA. By 2014, a compliance officer with KU learned that the sanction of Gassnola was due to Gassnola’s association as a runner — or someone who helps recruit players — for a professional sports agent.

Yet, the NCAA notes, both Self and assistant coach Kurtis Townsend “regularly consulted” with Gassnola on recruiting elite basketball prospects. Self and Townsend allowed Gassnola access to closed basketball practices and shoot-arounds where he was allowed to interact with student-athletes, the NCAA said, and Gassnola was also allowed into a secure area for families waiting for their student-athletes to come out of arena locker rooms.

• Tait's conclusion: All told, the allegations carry potential punishments that could keep the basketball program from the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1989 and result in a long-term suspension for Self, in addition to scholarship losses and other penalties.

Not all top recruits care about the NCAA tournament. See Beasley, Michael.
   

Quote
This is the silver lining today. If an assistant coach accepts money and is convicted of a federal crime, and the punishment is the one year ban, how bad can it possibly be when none of the coaches were charged with a crime, and there was sworn testimony that the coaches were intentionally kept out of the loop?

There’s no way our transgressions should be looked at as harshly. If they are, there has to be some outside relief.

Quote
It’s alll a completely laughable chain of events and that doesn’t take into account of our current political climate (sorry to get political) and how the ‘money’ sports are primarily African American and they help fund other non revenue sports that are primarily white.

It's time for the P5 to pull out.

Quote
KU is doomed on the optics side of things no matter what. If you care about them. The public perception from non KU fans is that KU needs to go down now no matter what. Those people dont know all the details of the case. They just group KU and Ok State and Auburn and all the others into one big group of teams and ignore the evidence in hand and the differences in each case. This includes media folk as well. Garry Parrish is one that comes to mind.

I don’t think the NCAA can afford to hammer KU. Like said, we are one of 4 bluebloods who generate a TON of interest. Most talked about programs in cbb: Duke, UK, KU. With the cancellation of the tourney this year, that cost the NCAA $80 billion. You think going forward they would want sites like Wichita, KC, Omaha to be empty bc KU is banned and can’t play? KU single handedly sells out those arenas for the tourney. Without them there, it’s prob 60% capacity max. Just my opinion.

Hate to break this to you but the FBI couldn't even find anything on KU. The NCAA won't do *****.

I hate to break this to you, but the FBI wasn’t looking for anything on KU. It had to use KU, the academic institution, to make its theory of the crime. In doing so, it essentially treated Self, Townsend, and the entire basketball program as unindicted co-conspirators.

Quote
NCAA is throwing absolutely everything at KU hoping to scare them into admitting something and taking lesser penalties.

Quote
I would love to negotiate with many who post here on this thread. The point of negotiation (and, trust me, this is a negotiation) is to make the other party feel a weakened stance or go as far as intimidate and defeat, if it's prudent. The NCAA is hoping the current accusations and environment scare KU into being "cooperative".

Quote
At least 90% of the Power 5 teams want to see the NCAA get hammered for egregiously using selective enforcement of the rules. The other teams are merely glad it's us and not them that is taking the NCAA to task. That's their joy in seeing this happen to KU.

Quote
Yep, we clearly should have packed up and gone to Under Armour, who was directly named in our indictment, or Nike, who has subsequently admitted to directing payments to players and their families.

Quote
How about this outcome? KU simply refuses to play their game and stalls or ignores any deadlines. What's the blowback from that approach

Quote
I think "we" arent paying recruits but obviously we are in bed with those who are.

Quote
I think if there is a blue-blood-type program that is actually taking care of players directly, it's Duke. It's a private university with a very small, wealthy alumni base that is spread all over the country.

Quote
The problem is - and always has been - that there is too much gray area, but your "bags of cash" argument still boils down to whether Gassnola should be declared a booster. Let's look at this "booster" issue in another way, then. In legal contractual terms. Instead of "booster," substitute "agent." Was Gassnola acting as an agent of KU? That analysis begins with authority and control. Was he acting with authority granted by KU or the coaching staff? No. He was acting in the best interest of his employer, adidas, not KU. Granted, in most situations, those interests align, but is there any question that Gassnola would act in adidas' interest if the interests of the two parties diverged? Absolutely not. If it was in adidas' best interest to steer a top recruit to another school, he'd do it in a heartbeat. Same with control. KU does not control what Gassnola does.

Quote
He's technically a booster of every Adidas school. If you are a booster of every Adidas school are you really a booster of any school?

Quote
Do you honestly think the NCAA wants text and phone records of their good ol' boy network public. With the incestuous nature of their enforcement arm and previous university affiliation or even the compostion of their new committee, there is a zero sum chance that there aren't salacious, damning and possibly illegal texts.

No way the NCAA would do that. They would lose way too much money when a third of the country doesn't care about the tourney because KU isn't in it. It's why viewership usually drops off considerably after the round of 32 or Sweet 16.

Quote
The IARP, created last year in response to recommendations from the Commission on College Basketball following the FBI's investigation into bribery and corruption in the sport, aims to minimize perceived conflicts of interest in the adjudication of complicated cases. Well, Kansas' case is certainly complicated. The program is facing a lack of institutional control allegation, while Hall of Fame coach Bill Self is facing a responsibility charge stemming from the FBI's investigation into bribery and corruption in the sport.

Rulings from the IARP cannot be appealed, and the investigative body has yet to set a precedent for how lenient or strict it will be with college basketball programs facing infractions cases. Both Memphis and NC State have yet to receive rulings on their respective cases.

That, and I haven't seen much evidence suggesting that self-imposed penalties result in greater leniency. Also, it's a tacit admission of (some) guilt. Thus far, KU is holding the line that they've done nothing wrong. A self-imposed punishment would be inconsistent with that position.

The Nike Collegiate Athletic Mafia cancelled the tournament under the guise of “corona.” It was a safe cop out for them because they knew it’d be bad for business (Nike) if Kansas (Adidas) dominated in March and April. They didn’t want another Louisville in 2013 situation. Nike programs have a monopoly on the National Championship in both College Basketball and College Football, and it should come as a surprise to nobody.

Alexa, inject.

The next 2-3 years will be our Bataan Death March. This year: MAYBE squeak into tourney. Next Year: probably marginally better on the court but off the court...whoa Nelly. MASSIVE sanctions....definitely no tourney. Self leaves “voluntarily” after next season. 3rd year: new coach and we hold our collective breath as to whether we turn into the next Indiana. Book it

This "life long fan" deserves big12 titles and elite 8's every year!

Quote
Life long fan and somewhat sad my attitude is shifting towards getting entirely new staff , feels like self and staff have been running on fat and lazy for a couple years now . No excuse for the recruiting fails and this years team is miserable .

Delicious salty tears, mmmmmmm

Quote
The writing is on the wall. The recruiting will not improve until the NCAA finally drops the sanctions. Time to cut ties, take our punishment and find a new coach imo. Time to Roy it up

This was followed by suggestions like Brad Stevens and Chris Beard

Quote
If Self gets canned, or leaves, who does KU pick to replace him?

The game has passed ole billy self by

Quote
I have no idea. I like Self and he’s been great, so it’s conflicting. But basketball is becoming more offensively oriented and aside from his inbounds plays, Self is not an offensively oriented coach...I feel like the game has evolved past him a bit in that respect. He’s been overcoming that issue in past years with superior talent but with the ncaa issue and struggling recruiting that comes with it, it feels like that’s not gonna get better soon. I just don’t see any player on the roster and think, that guy’s gonna be a stud next year...we don’t have that type of talent anymore. The other part of me recognizes that it’s stupid to part with such a coach when there aren’t that many hot commodities out there. I just don’t like where the program is going or what the future prospects look like. Again, it’s conflicting. I know I’m overreacting. But ku needs an offensive system that nba level kids wanna play in.

ETA: Self’s teams usually peak in January/February. This team seems to be getting worse. That’s really bad news. It’s late January, and this team still has zero identity

A SIX SEED?!? BUT WE ARE KU!!!

Quote
Absolute best case scenario is winning all the games we should and going 3-3 against Tennessee, Texas, Baylor, West Virginia, Tech, and Oklahoma State. That puts us at 18-8 going into the Big 12 tournament, which we very likely don’t win.

So best case scenario means 9 losses going into the NCAA tournament. That’s probably good for a 5 seed. There’s a good chance we end up as a 6+.

The WVU loss was Kansas' fifth straight road loss, which is the first time they have lost five games in a row on the road since 1982-83....a time when Larry Brown had just taken over and was gathering the talent for his 1984 final four run with a freshman Danny Manning.  But now, we don't see the Hawks reloading with talent.  They are winning recruiting battles against Creighton and Georgetown, and not against blue bloods and other fashionable programs.

2 of the past 3 years have been Self's worse teams at KU. This isn't ending until the investigation is wrapped up. Even then we have no idea what recruiting will look like.

Quote
I’m just not sure Self is as hungry as he used to be either. Between 2010, 2011, 2016, 2017, and 2020 he should have won another national title. Maybe it’s getting to him.

I still think he’s capable of winning another but I think that’s going to require reworking the staff, bringing in some connected assistants from the AAU scene, and some small changes to our offensive and defensive philosophies.

If the staff continues to remain Norm, Norm, KT, and Snacks then I think it’s a real tell tale sign that Self is content just riding this thing out.

Quote
These are the quotes that really fire me up. He has almost no talent on the roster. That is on him, not the players. He can’t recruit because of NCAA violations. Ok, that is also on him. A really big part of coaching is how well you recruit. I am sure that Nick Sagan is a great X’s and O’s Guy but he works his ass off getting best players. When are a lot of you guys gonna start to question HCBS and effort?

Quote
This is on Self. The game plan preparation, his staff and roster construction. But yet people are going to continue to die on the hill of “well we would have won it last year” shtick or the “it was just their night.” At some point, it’s not a coincidence that VCU, Wichita, Oregon, auburn, USC all go bonkers from 3 in our season ending loss. This is a top 3 worst loss in program history.

We have been blitzkrieged so many times in the tournament. At a certain point the only one to blame is Self.

Bucknell, Bradley, Northern Iowa, VCU, the last 5 minutes against Michigan, Wichita State, Oregon, Villanova, Auburn, now USC.

It’s possible each of those programs’ most impressive moment in school history came in their respective game mentioned above against KU. Nova won two titles, but that 14 three-point half against KU was probably their most impressive stretch of play under Wright in what was a de facto title game. Shaka Smart is STILL EMPLOYED based solely on that VCU game from a decade ago.

Quote
This fanbase deserves it when we become Indiana...I still think Indiana would be wise to go hard after Self right now. And he might just take it. Then all us will watch the wonderful administration here make an awesome hire like they do in every other sport. Enjoy Mark Turgeon or Tad Boyle, guys KU will hire when Self is gone, neither of whom will ever make it beyond the Sweet 16. And that drop off will be well deserved for this incredibly spoiled fanbase.

Quote
Bill is at a crossroads here. This team has to get better in less than a year. We are trying to find good/great transfers to supplement the recruiting misses, and it just isn't working.

Quote
Thing that was alarming to me, in the postgame self said team was unprepared and out coached. That’s fine Nov-early Jan. But if you’re not prepared in March in the biggest game of the season, that’s a reflection on the coaching staff being lazy and outdated quite frankly. And that is the exact same thing he said in 2019 too, that’s what’s really concerning about this program
Title: Re: KU Basketball is Hurting
Post by: ben ji on March 23, 2021, 09:28:08 AM

People keep griping about the results but overlooking the cause. Three years under a de facto probation has drained the depth of talent on this team. Self can't overcome that elephant. Remember the "Arizona, NC State, LSU are still recruiting great" talk? UA missed the tourney and Miller is about to be on the street. LSU got bounced by Michigan. NCState didn't make the dance. A good parallel is UNC. Roy's recruiting took a hit for a couple of years during the academic scandal. After it cleared up, 5*s were magically going to UNC again. (oh, and Ol' Roy got his a$$ handed to him this tourney too and where are Nike's favored children, UK and Duke? Home.)

Quote
Admit it—the roster talent from 2004 to 2012ish was materially different than what we’ve had in the time since then. A few hidden gems like Graham and Mason kept us elite, but even before the investigation Self wasn’t killing it. The investigation has made things far worse.

A big ole L O L at Self's "Mediocrity"

Quote
He makes too much money for mediocrity. Let's get this ncaa thing done so he can recruit real players. A bunch of bench players won't cut it. He makes over$ 7 million a year.

Quote
Anyone care to try to defend 3-4 the last seven years in the round of 32? Good guy, horrible tournament coach.

Quote
Self needs to do some self reflecting as a coach, no pun intended. But to win at the level we have in the regular season & come out in tourney games and just lay an absolute turd, he has to change something. Switch up the assistants. We can’t play like Georgetown in the 80’s. The game has passed by Self a little and he’s too stubborn for his own good. Last 5/6 tourney games we got absolutely pantsed, tarred and feathered. I mean cmon usc is good but not 19 points better than us good. Would like to see Self shake up the staff and make playing style.

This is a guards game and quite frankly, if you can’t shoot well from 3, you really stand no chance. I love Self, but the man is wayyyyyyy too stubborn for his own good to sometimes step back and realize he might be the problem in these games

USC defeated No. 3 seed Kansas 85-51 on Monday night to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament – handing the Jayhawks the third worst defeat in program history. Prior to Monday’s game, Kansas had suffered just eight 30-point losses in program history, the most recent being a 72-40 loss to Kentucky in 2014.

It's been 7 years since Bill Self lost by 30.  Other programs do that multiple times a season, and their fans still fondle their balls.

How many times do we talk about "anything beyond a Final Four is just the cherry," when UK, Duke and UNC's fanbases are out there saying "fuq the Final Four! Natty or Nothin'!" UConn has four natties in the last 20 years. Roy got all three of his in the same amount of time and during the same period Bill's been at KU. K has five natties, the last three in the last 20 years. Jay Wright has two natties in five years. Even if Calipari has one natty, he still has one more Final Four than Self in a shorter period of time. So what's the diff?

At a certain point, you have to stop chalking it up to luck when the same guys are winning it all over and over and over in the same era. They clearly have been doing something Self and KU haven't.

Jay Wright would have won 3 or 4 titles had he coached at KU for 16 years like Self

He won 2 at Nova and doesn't even land half the talent Self lands at KU

But as long as KU keeps winning conference titles in a conference that hasn't produced a national champion outside of KU since the 1950's a large portion of the fanbase will continue to be satisfied with those results, oh and AFH is rated the best home court advantage in CBB, we got that going for us as well

I mean, whether it's shooters or big men, Coach Self needs to recruit some ALPHA DOGS! I feel like we've attracted almost nothing but ballerinas since T-Rob, Releford and Withey left. We've had a couple bright spots with Mason and D'tae, but they didn't have a sidekick they could really rely on. I thought after the K-State stool game last year that we had a team with some real fight in them. But, alas, Doke and DeSousa never got to stare down anybody last year in the tourney. And, to be fair, they both were such. long. projects to even get there.

Gimme some cagers, man. Gimme guys that are gonna lean into a big man and get into shoving matches in the tunnel like the Morii did against Richmond. Gimme Taylor/T-Rob again. Gimme Collins/Aldrich. Gimme the Morii. Gimme Withey/Releford. I want some guys who are just plain old "don't wanna meet me in a dark alley" kind of intimidating.

Working theory is that Bill quit recruiting (spending years developing relationships with kids/families etc) after the title. Whatever they needed seemed to just fall together after that. At least with bigs and wing players.

You'd have to put every single school on this list before you would Indiana.

Baylor
Texas Tech
West Virginia
UCLA
Oregon
Alabama
Kentucky
Florida
Arkansas
Michigan
Illinois
Ohio State
Michigan State
Virginia
North Carolina
Duke
Florida State
Houston
Creighton
Villanova
UConn

I'm not even adding the programs clearly better but have NCAA issues looming, Kansas and Arizona. I'm also not adding schools I think have been consistently better than Indiana in the life of current high school and college students like Louisville, Memphis, Wichita State, USC, Iowa, Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, and Syracuse.

Right now they don't have either the program or the coach. Even if they get Belein I still don't know if I would guarantee they are going to win a championship in a decade, he didn't at Michigan and he's 68 years old now, he isn't going to be coaching in a decade. They better throw all that Cuban money at Porter Mosier and hope he isn't a bust.

I guess I don't know what "blow it up" means. Even with a multi year post season ban, I think the combination of Self and KU will be back. It will never be what it was, but they won't be Indiana as long as he's there because he's the right coach. I don't think that Townsend "retiring" will do much to stop them from being a contender in most years.

Goff's first big task will be to set the course for a moribund football program already going through spring practice under wide receivers coach Emmett Jones, picked to serve as the interim coach last month.

The downtrodden Jayhawks lost all nine of their games last season. They have not had a winning season since Mark Mangino was on the sideline in 2008, cycling through Turner Gill, Charlie Weis, interim coach Clint Bowen, David Beaty and Miles without finding a way to return to prominence.

Goff is expected to lead the search for the next football coach, though the timeline for that hiring remains unclear.

Along with deep-seated fan apathy, the Jayhawks have some of the worst facilities in the Big 12 -- despite a new indoor practice facility -- and have struggled for years to generate money and support to upgrade Memorial Stadium.

Goff also must deal with potential NCAA sanctions facing the Jayhawks' storied basketball program.

The program was hit with five Level I charges tied to recruiting, one directed at Self, as part of the fallout of an FBI investigation into college basketball corruption. Kansas has staunchly defended itself against the allegations, and the case is going through the NCAA's new independent appeals process, with a decision expected later this year.

"Travis understands the challenges we face and the changing landscape of collegiate athletics," Kansas Chancellor Doug Girod said. "At the same time, he is well-positioned to help us build on our recent successes in student-athlete health care, diversity and inclusion, and student-athlete academic achievement. The fact that he is a Jayhawk is an added bonus."

• been accused of sexual harassment or sexual assault;

• retaliated against any student, co-worker or supervisor for making a sexual harassment or sexual assault claim;

• engaged in any form of sexual harassment or sexual assault;

• been found guilty of sexual assault of sexual harassment;

• entered into any settlement agreement related to sexual assault or harassment allegations.

Former KU football coach Les Miles mutually parted ways with the school last month after previous allegations of sexual harassment surfaced from his time as LSU’s coach a decade ago.

Another clause in Goff’s contract also states he must consult with the chancellor before giving any athletic department contract that lasts more than one year or has a value of more than $500,000.

If this happens it’s because Self wants him to move on.

I also don't think he'd be going there to assume the same position unless Self was all for it. I'm sure he'd try to keep him otherwise. So if there's truth to this rumor and he does make the move, imo Self must've been okay with it.

Quote
I think if Self really wanted to keep him, he would have. If it was about money, all he'd have to do is ask the BMDs to help out and I have no doubt they would have. The resources are there for Self and the men's basketball program imo.

Quote
I think Texas just took what it wanted.
Quote
Not unless Self was good with it, imo.

Quote
Self GUARANTEED "let" this happen.

Quote
People close to KU aren't shocked by the Jerrance Howard move. Was always likely on his way out and had been eyeing Texas during the season.

Quote
I find 0% likelihood that Self lets Snacks move on if he wanted him on the staff. Money is not an objective. KU would find the money to match or exceed any offer and it wouldn't be that hard. Basketball is the lifeblood and identity of the University. Texas basketball is an interesting diversion after football season and before Spring practice. Their new arena is 40% SMALLER than their existing arena (16.6K vs 10K). That doesn't scream basketball passion. It screams "something to do in the winter".

I doubt Self and KU let him leave to go to Texas if they wanted to keep him.

Quote
Yeah I won’t miss him he was a middle of the road assistant whose recruiting didn’t really live up to the hype. Some new blood on the staff will be welcome.

Quote
Not sure why he'd prefer Texas over Kansas with the coach he played for.

Quote
Lots of ways to interpret this:

1. Just part of Self's planned changes. Knows he has someone better on the way, helped Snacks find a landing place.

2. Snacks knows the hammer is about to drop and wanted out quickly.

3. Texas offered more money and we didn't want to match.

Quote
More #1, some #3 - but if Self wanted to keep him we would have

Quote
his contract was up and KU chose not to renew it.

Quote
I felt like the staff was getting a little stale, even though I didn't anticipate Snacks, sometimes I wonder how good of a coach he was anyways.

Quote
I'm betting he gets a pay raise and doubtful that KU wouldn't match unless Self was fine with him leaving. More to this story I'm sure....


Starts getting a little salty as the news sets in...

Quote
Good news don't let the door hit you on the way out. Need better than him at a program like ours

Quote
Pretty much a downgrade. Blueblood to a place where people don't care about basketball

Quote
I see absolutely no way in which this sucks. In fact, I'll say Self needs to shake up his coaching staff.

Quote
It’s time for some new blood on the staff. Howard was kind of overhyped as this great recruiter and was kind of underwhelming. Didn’t seem like he was a great assistant, as I thought Self took him in the first place because he was a former player under him and wanted continuity.

Quote
Howard was supposed to be instrumental in us landing Chicago area talent and all we got out of that was Markese Jacobs and a suspension of Howard for smoking dope

Quote
I can understand Howard wanting to leave for more money but to go to a rival within the conference is pretty much just a Dick move!

Quote
I guess I was never super impressed with him. He came in and was touted as a top assistant/great recruiter and was pretty underwhelming

Quote
If you've ever been to a KU practice, Snacks was the guy that stood under the basket and threw the balls back to the shooters. Other than that, I never saw him do much of anything. He was the liaison of sorts for the staff.
Quote
Exactly. That and jumping around on the sidelines. No loss.

Quote
If Self thought Howard leaving would significantly hurt our standing with recruits, I doubt Howard would be leaving.

Quote
Honest question with all we’ve learn with the Nike and Adidas money funnel does an assistant coach being a “good recruiter” mean jack anymore?

Quote
You want a hot take? Here’s your hot take. Snacks is a total Nike sneaker head, and he took this job so he can get better access to swoosh kicks.

I don’t think beard is going to be any better at texas then he was at TT.

Yes.

Nothing says we're not committed to basketball like an expenditure on a single facility that will cost more money than the entirety of KU's investment in athletics facilities . . . ever.

If my calculations are correct, KU is a distant last in total facilities investment in the Big 12 over the last 15 years.   I'm not even going to count Rock Chalk Park becauses KU athletics didn't pay for it, and they're engaged in an embarrassing and  :lol: lease arrangement on that cookie cutter gener-o any suburbia USA facility.

How much of Texas's new arena is actually being paid for by the school or AD tho? I thought the city was chipping in a bunch, as it will also be used as a public event venue.

I believe originally a developer/property group/investment group (honestly not sure how to describe it) was paying for it/building it and would get all profits for a certain amount of time, then there would be profit sharing with UT after.

But then, the Moody Foundation donated like half the cost to UT to chip in for the Arena and I believe a new basketball practice facility... so I'm not really sure how any of it works now.

I do know it's everything I would want in a facility at K-State (we probably wouldn't even need the upper deck option to expand seating for events.)

I'm pony up some serious dough for a chance to watch a basketball game in Ahearn again. Bramlage is obviously a superior venue, and I wouldn't want a conference game in there, but I think it would be really neat to have 1 or 2 OOC games a year in Ahearn.

Nope, this is one of those lost in text type translations.

I have never seen a basketball game in Ahearn. I would love to have the opportunity to see a basketball game in Ahearn, should K-State men's basketball play there like they did in the past.

There's plenty that can be done to make it not Bramlagey anymore. Hopefully they get really creative.

Give me a pitched roof with steel beams, a few windows to drop some sunlight in on the Saturday afternoon games.  Wheel in a couple food trailers to sell popcorn. Give real Willie his own habitat by the club.  Figure out how to incorporate those steep steps and little tunnels.  Slap a little more limestone up.

They literally raised the roof on Gallagher Iba to add an upper deck.  Surely the HIQE on here can draw this up.

In a weird way, it was actually a pretty decent venue for volleyball - just an odd/unique setup. Even with only 1,000 people, it would get decently loud. The lack of A/C did suck for August/September matches (I imagine opposing teams hated that since they weren't used to it).

I can't remember when, but in the late 90s/early 2000s, K-State hosted NCAAs instead of Nebraska and there were definitely all sorts of firecode violations when the corn people packed the stands (and endlessly bitched about having to come to MHK instead of hosting themselves).

Northwestern renovated their arena, Welsh-Ryan for $110 million. It was built in 1952 with a capacity of 9,500 and now holds 7,039 (Ahearn opened in 1950 with 14,000 and closed in '88 around 12k to give you a size comparison). Bramlage renovations are projected  at $85 million and will reduce capacity to introduce more luxury seating and a mid level concourse.

I mention Welsh Ryan because the interior might look familiar:

Completely stop with no hope of going back? This season. It was a slow bleed of games to Bramlage before that though. Everything over there is just too cramped and old. There is a chance they might have to go to Ahearn for a match or two next November when basketball starts up, but Ahearn is dunzo as our volleyball home court.

We actually hosted more than once. The record there is just over 5000 and that was for a regular season match against nubb. They didn't move the court, scoreboard set up didn't allow that, so there were people all the way to what would be midcourt for basketball. Those were super duper obstructed view seats. We had a couple of more crowds around 4000 and more around 3000 back then. Around the mid 2000's they capped capacity at around 2000 and they hung that giant tarp behind the student section to make sure everyone was contained to the south side of the building.

Title: Re: KU Basketball is Hurting
Post by: SkinnyBenny on April 16, 2021, 12:35:03 AM
Actually I believe Northwestern's renovation did what Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse renovation did: re-oriented the court 90 degrees from what it used to be. It looks kind of weird with the rafters going the "wrong" way but now there are at least five schools I can think of whose court runs perpendicular to the rafters, so it's not as alarming anymore. Anyway, in doing so it allows them to stretch the rows behind the sidelines up higher than they used to, and behind the baskets now they just stack two really tiny 7-row decks on top of each other since the building doesn't allow much room to add rows back.

To wit...

Old Hinkle:

(https://www.si.com/.image/ar_4:3%2Cc_fill%2Ccs_srgb%2Cfl_progressive%2Cq_auto:good%2Cw_1200/MTc5NzA1NDIzMDMxNDQ0NzYw/butler-fieldhouse-inside-floor-east-west-1928-1932.jpg)


New Hinkle:

(https://www.ncaa.com/_flysystem/public-s3/styles/original/public-s3/images/2021/03/18/butler-university-hinkle-fieldhouse.jpg?itok=hFhZXAXF)

If we were ever to retrofit Ahearn, which we won't, I imagine we'd maybe have to do that? So many of these old fieldhouses doubled as armories and indoor track places and crap, so their dimensions don't always work great for hoops by today's sightline standards. That's why there were so many horrendous seats in Ahearn behind the baskets back in the day. It was very 90's Kyle Field'y.

No doubt, but it certainly wasn't the norm. It does exist, though. Alabama's Coleman Coliseum is the same way. Also I've been to a game at McGill and it definitely scratched an itch for a game in an old timey arena. :thumbs:


Western Michigan's Read Arena now has the court oriented perpendicular to the rafters. They also pulled a Butler. Or maybe Butler pulled a Western Michigan? Not sure who did it first.

Here's old Read Arena, which clearly looks exactly like Ahearn as far as proportions, court alignment, permanent upper deck but with temporary bleachers at the bottom. Then when they updated it they flipped the court 90 degrees.

Correct, I was wrong on Northwestern's arena. But surely anyone would admit that 90%+ of the fieldhousey arenas in those days were built with the rafters running the way Ahearn's do.

P.S. I think a roof like this would be awesome for Bramlage.

Nice...plus it has a clerestory!   :love:

Here is Mizzou Arena (or mini-Banker's Life I'd imagine they call it)

How much of Texas's new arena is actually being paid for by the school or AD tho? I thought the city was chipping in a bunch, as it will also be used as a public event venue.

I believe originally a developer/property group/investment group (honestly not sure how to describe it) was paying for it/building it and would get all profits for a certain amount of time, then there would be profit sharing with UT after.

But then, the Moody Foundation donated like half the cost to UT to chip in for the Arena and I believe a new basketball practice facility... so I'm not really sure how any of it works now.

I do know it's everything I would want in a facility at K-State (we probably wouldn't even need the upper deck option to expand seating for events.)

The upper deck thing is fascinating to me. Is it actually "expandable" or will they be tarping that sucker?

I just saw an interview, and they said it’ll use “revolutionary technology” to adjust it.

So it better be pretty cool.

I think they are fine now. These facilities dorks wouldn't be doing this otherwise.  Very TSC of them tho.

Well it's looking like the NCAA penalties won't come before next season either, so they're fine I guess.

Uh, that's a dice roll. Putting together that many spare parts has never proven to be successful. Their three most high profile transfers are two undersized ball dominant guards and another guard on his fourth school in 5.5 years. How will these dudes mesh with Agbagi, with each other? Very high risk/high reward

I will bet on Bill Self.  That rough rider seems to figure out a way to make it work.

The Kansas City media talking point that Bill self  is always shaping some sort of bad news bears situation into a contender is mind blowing
