To the editor:
In response to Mr. Gary Watson's letter to the editor of March 22 regarding coach Bill Self: In my opinion, coach Self is one of the most impressive coaches across the country. Perhaps if Mr. Watson would remove himself from his La-Z-Boy, put down his beer, and take his head out of the sand, maybe, just maybe, he would have a different perspective of coach Self.
In the past 12 years as a coach, he leaves a record of 254 wins and 121 losses. Since he has been here in Lawrence, the Kansas University basketball team has had a winning record every year, and 2006 was no exception with 25 wins and 7 losses. The university and the city of Lawrence are very fortunate indeed to have Mr. Self here, not only from a standpoint of head coach of a great university, but also as an asset to our community.
Coach Self has the respect and admiration of the entire community, with the exception of a one Mr. Watson. Go get 'em coach. Can't wait until next season.
