Josh Selby working out in Vegas, hasn’t declared for NBA Draft

It is sad that this Alex Kennedy is reporting as a tabloid writer. I wish the best for Selby and hope that he makes a wise decision when it is time. He didn't look ready by the end of the season and especially not in the tournament. NBA may lockout. I guess we'll see.

Kansas football ramps up fitness

Good points on looking tired. In cycling, riders key in on the body language of other cyclist to decide when to attack. As a matter of fact, Lance Armstrong used body language to fake being tired in one of his TdF victories getting other riders to attack before they should. I just hope that Gill has these guys conditioned this year to last 4 quarters with Texas, OU, MU... Those guys will be in good condition and so should we.

Gary Bedore's basketball notebook: KU's Tyshawn Taylor focused on winning

I think that the top 2 kids Ben McLemore and the other top rated kid are waiting to see what the twins do. Something tells me that the twins are going to play for KU next year and with each other on the same team for the last time.

UCLA’s Howland speaks with NCAA

If the clock is running, does it really matter what point of the game a foul is called? If there is less than 1 second left of the clock, is there an open season rule in the NCAA? The refs were calling touch fouls against Kansas all game. Holliday's four point play on a foul called versus Tyshawn Taylor was a questionable call. I did not really see the foul by Tyshawn and a four point play can be a game changer no matter how much time is on the clock. Howland should do a better job of coaching his kids to play the odds the the last shot not dropping and not to foul with less than 5 seconds.

Winning might hurt our place in the draft.

Reaching new height(s): Taller, bulkier guard Elijah Johnson eager to prove himself in 2010-2011

It will be interesting to see how Johnson and Selby play in the backcourt. It will be a good problem I suppose to have a talent build up in then guard position. Reed, Johnson, Selby, Tyshawn.

Harder edge in order

Division 2 Loss. I don't think we want to emmulate Michigan. Perkins will be long gone after Gill can be properly evaluated because he needs more than one game. However, losing to lesser opponents is from either a lack of game planning or a lack of discipline. The KC Cheifs were not a focused team under Herm Edwards.

Raptors acquire Julian Wright

I think Julian's situation is one of the problems with kids going pro before graduation. Unless you are a true phenom like Wall or Rose, you'll be a back up. Mario was lucky that Miami did not have a point when he was drafted. Rush, Shady played the bench for two years and I bet the same for Henry. Julian is making the money, which is why he left the nest early, but is he happier than if he would have played another year at KU and graduated?

Defensive end Travis Stephens dismissed from KU football team

The Great Joe Paterno expects no less from his players. Sounds like the program under Gill is under a great start.
