Self said this week that the frustration level with the delay in both cases has gone up but also maintained that the folks at KU, including the two players, understand the process and respect that the NCAA has to do what it has to do. (( Yes but wouldn't it be wise to keep the public informed.)

Efforts by the Journal-World this week to reach the NCAA for some kind of clarity in the process and/or the delay in either or both cases were unsuccessful.((Keep trying ))

It appears that legal action might get attention. It is totally unfair for these athletes not to get information on their status of eligibility.

Yes it appears the results of the investigation are in waiting way too long. Plus we don't hear any rumors as to what is being investigated or the possible time it will be solved. Self only indicates it is in the process.

Being able to dunk makes scoring easier. But unable to make free throws will help become hack a Shag. He needs to figure out how to shoot free throws. It appears to me he sorta throws the ball rather than shooting it.

Are you sure Booth is deciding how to use the pledge or maybe you not aware who decides how it is spent.

I agree renaming the stadium and honoring David Booth is justified.I feel certain he didn't ask for this recognition but his financial help is appreciated.

Success will depend on attracting better players. Got one so lets get more.

Yes Udoka needs to be fed to score. But he also needs to develop a situation whereby passes can be made without interception. During league lay coming up simply passing over the top might be difficult. So he might benefit by posting so bounce passes can be made. Also his constant posting under the goal eliminates dribble and drive by the guards.

“I overcoached,” Self said after the win. “I should've never called a timeout to end the first half. Never. Because they went 1-3-1 and we didn't get a good shot. So we knew they'd go 1-3-1 late.”
Happy for the victory which was highly needed but I am curious why his results against zone generally aren't good yet he won't try that crappy defense. Maybe in the future results will not be a factor in winning but that zone defense he calls crappy might nip our heels.

You certainly have made many points that make sense. I think we all would agree better athletes need to recruited. Presently that is a major problem due to limited 4 and 5 star players from Kansas. Out of state athletes are difficult to obtain as competition hurts due to recent records of success. Basketball doesn't have that problem.
Just changing coaches might not be the answer. If the present staff remains maybe we should encourage better players to become Jayhawks
