FINAL: KU pushes past Ohio State, 64-62, to advance to championship game

I attended KU and graduated from OSU. I am loyal to both coaches. I am not a fan of Self or matta. They are very similar coaches. They are great recruiters, bad game managers and never seem to win the big game. One of these guys had to win and it was Self. Now go out and beat the Outlaw kentucky team. This place will soon be caught in a recruiting scandal.The Kentucky program is everything wrong with big time college sports. It has replaced Miami of the 80's and 90's as the slimiest school!! Go Hawks!!

Next year, title possible

The K State KU rivalry reminds me a little of the Michigan-OSU football rivalry. I graduated from Ohio State, and like KU in basketball, we expect to be in the top 4 or 5 every year. Also like KU in basketball, we have an overated coach (Tressel) who is a good recruiter but can't get it done consistently with great talent. Roy Williams (The Carpetbagger) is a much better coach than Self. I don't think he is as good of a recruiter as billy Boy. When Self eventually gets canned (hopefully sooner than later), I wonder which candiates will be considered. KU is the best job in college basketball and that's why I can't believe they lowered the bar to hire Self. Those of us who lived in Illinois saw what a mediocre job he did with 2superior teams choked full of talent.

Self is one overated coach. We saw him choke in 01" with the Illini who were favored to win it all. He is a very good recruiter but has never been able to get a team to play at a consistently high level. I have always had a fondness for KU basketball, as my late Dad was a graduate in the 1940's, and worked with Phog Allen. KU has too great of a repution to put up with a coach like this. He will soon wear out his welcome. KU you deserve alot better.

Press might have saved Jayhawks
