Cheick Diallo 'can't wait' to play for Jayhawks

Why not bill the NCAA for doing what they should have done. They could afford $100,000 and thank KU for doing it.

Father explains Greene’s 6-game suspension due to playing-time dispute

I'm sure the Greene family who moved to Kansas so they could watch him play must feel badly about a suspension. Some question the 6 game suspension as a rather stiff penalty. The last game he hit 5 treys without a miss. Maybe if the team screened for him to shoot might have
changed how the MSU-KU game ended. One of the concerns some feel is if a player is jerked from the game when he makes a mistake probably would encourage the players to not be aggressive and not make mistakes. Others feel some players make mistakes yet are not jerked.

Column: KU fails to get Perry Ellis enough shots in first loss

During the Korean games they played fast took many shots and won their games. Last game Greene made 5 treys without a miss yet last night spent most of the game riding the bench.
Would the team have better success if Self screened for his outside shooters to be open rather than having inside passes stolen or heavily guarded. Also might make inside passes easier.

In the running: A look at some of the top basketball preps still considering the Jayhawks

Gary does a great job listing potential recruits. He listed more than 10 yet more than likely at most 3 possibly 4 will be signed. Often the top recruits always list Kansas even though they won't sign or that Kansas even wants them to sign.
Players leaving early for the pros are often difficult to replace as their plans aren't made known until the signing period is over.
It appears that Kentucky won't be signing so many that they platoon like last year. Also some like at Duke last year sign as a group.
We have good upperclassmen so that along with the Korean trip will certainly help to have a highly successful season.

Column: Will Self keep Kansas playing faster?

I'm in favor of more shooting as it believe it helps teams that have superior players. The Korea games were very exciting to watch.
I believe Self enjoyed the games more than usual. Also with a heavy quality team he can expect subs to perform better. I realize it might affect his desiring inside post play but I also believe the
players prefer faster play.

All counties in Kansas allowing same-sex marriage licenses, but state not yet allowing name changes, joint tax returns

Just a thought:
If same sex people get married and want to change their surnames. Which one changes and or are each a different solution.
I assume man-woman marriages the wife changes to her husbands surname. Same sex marriages that would assume one partner is a male role and the other a female role.
Maybe someone familiar with this can share how it works.

Lew Perkins joins USA Boxing board

I'm wondering Lew if you have donated to pay for scholarships or helped sponsor teams or events
being you had years of administration for KU athletics. Giving is good for the soul especially as events happened that were critical for KU athletics.

Former KU center Sasha Kaun has not retired from professional basketball

Jayhawk fans just love Sasha for what he did for our Jayhawks. He has the perfect situation for his future. Should a pro team offer him an opportunity he probably will accept it. If not he'll find
something to do that he likes.
I was a fan of Sasha even back to his Florida high school days.

Column: He’s the right hire for ISU

Hey we don't have to agree with what Tom writes. Although this one seems unusual as it appears
ole Larry can solve all problems.

More glowing reports on KU hoops commitment Vick

I don't understand the holdup whether to reclassify or not.I believe he has completed the 4 high school years. One would think the trip to Korea and the chance to practice against college players
would be a better decision than playing a 5th year high school schedule.
It doesn't appear his grade work is a problem (maybe that is the holdup).
