Bill Self: College game needs work

I believe that SI recently pointed out...via many stats and metrics…it’s the coaches, not rule changes or players causing the boring college basketball viewing expeirence

And, I thought back in the day when we had 1 coach in the Big 12 (Kelvin Sampson) making games wrestling matches, was tough enough to watch…such as the Big 12 Title Game when OU wrestled KU to score 19 points in the first half and 55 overall

The graphic enclosed, was college basketball for me during the Roy era

Fan-tastic: Spectators get glimpse of Jayhawks

While I typically enjoy your op-eds/columns, your description of KU Football Fan Appreciation Day really torques me off

As a longtime KU Alumnus, Williams Fund member and fan of the KU Football program since the days of Bud Moore, Nolan Cromwell, Laverne Smith, Norris Banks, Tony Sands, Kerwin Bell, Bill Whittemore, Chip Hilleary, Mike Norseth, Dana Stubblefield, Frank Seurer, et al…your description of Saturday afternoon not only aggravates me, it’s inaccurate

My wife and I spent at least three hours on the hill watching an extremely well executed practice session, amongst at least 1,000 fans (I can ballpark within 500, seriously) - to quote you “Saturday was Fan Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium, and despite an early threat of inclement weather, between 500 and 1,000 KU football supporters spread out on the west side of the stadium”

Following the practice more than “several” fans, particularly kids with their parents were treated to an autograph session with each player, completely accessible seated at tables to sign whatever the fans wanted - to quote you “After the practice, several fans who stuck around until the end hit the new stadium’s new turf and stood in line to get autographs from KU players and coaches.”

The players were extremely grateful for the turnout and really showed their appreciation to the fans that attended and support KU FOOTBALL

Despite the perception that we only have ONE sport on this campus, Kansas University Football has an extremely pedigreed legacy

I would appreciate it, as Keegan stated earlier last week, if fans would support our team and not be “haters” to be cool

Deciding on Christmas tree can be tricky

I'd suggest Evening Star Christmas Tree Farm

Fritzel offers to make $50,000 historic preservation donation to help resolve Varsity House dispute

Just doesn't fly, return it to the original condition and/or put the real estate back up for sale...many people would have purchased the house/real estate without the shackles that were obviously in play.

Color Run Lawrence

As a downtown resident, this event was very poorly planned to allow us to get to our home.

We had to use the alleys to actually get home, ridiculous

Do you think Kanas University made the right move extending men's basketball coach Bill Self's contract through 2022?

no coach at the University of Kansas needs a guaranteed contract, period

especially Bill Self

Downtown cameras demand strict limits

classclown, thank you for staying out of downtown, if this is your myopic perspective

in the end to provide safety, as is done around the world, what is one afraid of - the potential of poor video quality - or the actual act of committing a crime?

it appears most societies that use CCTV feel safer, have less crime, and are marginally worried about their personal rights being abused.
