First to ‘worst’: Lowly TCU stuns Jayhawks

Are you serious? Chalmer was saved by his dad and Taylor is still garbage and he can't get off the bench in Brooklyn. That 08 team was stacked but if UCLA doesn't lose 3 to the NBA KU does not win that Championship PERIOD. Morningstar and Tyrell PLEASE!!!! You thought they were good? BS made them designated 3 pointers. They both were good ball-handlers but under a Caliperi their game would have elevated. Brady at times when he took the initiative he had a great mid-range jumper but no BS wanted him to be just a facilitator. Tyrell was bullet fast he just never punched on the gas and I personally don't think if he did no one in the nation could guard him. If you could comprehend BS gets allot of pieces that makes it appear that he can coach but I understand that BS is your GOD. You don't have a clue. So continue to suffer thats your best chance.

First to ‘worst’: Lowly TCU stuns Jayhawks

I've been saying it all the time the guards need to punch on the gas and shoot mid-range 7-14. Its all about shooting in space uncontested. The opposing teams guards do it to them. I'm sick of these stupid drives all the way to the basket then to throw the ball away or stupid floaters. Also all of the guards bend at the back instead of bending at the knees. That makes for poor defense and cannot speed away from defenders.

That is why they can't get away from double teams and their bodys are all twisted up to get rid of the ball. There is also good coaching from the visitors bench. it ain't just the players fault. There are 5 coaches that played guard in college that is on that bench and Travis Ford and Fred Hoiberg was much better players than all of them.

Self always has several good pieces that makes it appear that he can coach but he and that bench of coaches are guard destroyers. That is why Marcus Smart went to OSU along with several other 5 star guards in the past 4-5 years. I whole-heartedly believe in whipping the ball around but when you see an open area on the floor mid-range punch on the gas to a spot then stop-pop-bang.

Plus no opposing coach is just going to allow Withey to beat them so they will double him. The only way to free Withey is the dribble drive to mid-range shooting in space uncontested. They choke them down then its lob city to all the Bigs.

If any one notices EJ, REL and Thorpe blows by their opponent then forces passes to Withey that are not there when they could pull-up and take the short uncontested jumper and not that silly floater or a bad pass throwing backwards not having a clue of where any of there teammates are. Or those pedestrian dribble drives under the basket to throw a bad cross court pass out of bounds.

EJ plays as if he doesn't want any responsibilty he just wants to shoot 3's. Now some of you BS worshipers are angry at me? But go down to Lawrence High and ask coach Dirk Wedd who was the original #23 that he played with that had a 40 inch vertical at 5-9 that shot the lights out at mid-range in 68-69 season. If you don't want to do that then go watch the guards of the KU 88 championship. If not that stay miserable.

Opinion: KU not perfect but still deserving of No. 1 spot

they developed their skills in college except Kobe so its obvious you don't have a clue and can't play either.

Notebook: Elijah Johnson believes shooting will improve; KU will wear alternate unis Monday

Self is the problem he has them over obsessed with passing to Withey. I've been saying for the past 4 years the guards need to develop the mid-range shot 7-12 instead of those stupid lobs. EJ, Travis and Thorpe are the fastest group of guards in the country.

They just don't punch on the gas when there is space to dribble drive inside. Its a 3,5 or 7 step drive then pull-up jumper. Its all about shooting in space uncontested. Its a dang shame 5 coaches that played guard and doesn't have a clue.

If they do that its an National Championship PERIOD. Self always has several good pieces that makes it appear that he can coach but he and that bench of coaches are guard destroyers. Watch Kobe, Ray Allen, Kirk Heinrich, Chris Paul its all about shooting in space then that will free up Withey because somebody will have to leave Withey to help out.

Opinion: It's time to embrace this team's ugly way of winning

the problem is that you have 5 coaches that played guard and neither has a clue about the mid-range game. EJ is a very fast guard the problem is that he is tentative or uncertain on how to have fun playing basketball. He thinks he's a 3 point specialist.
If he would just bend his knees and not his back and punch on the gas with a 3 or 5 or 7 step drive stop and pop jumpers that gives him the 7-12 ft uncontested mid-range shot and this includes all the guards. Thorpe does it ever so often but not near enough. Mac has it down and if REL would do it often he would be unstopable. There is no rule that says one has to force a drive that is not there then end up looking stupid by throwing a desperation pass away into the stands. This is the only way that frees up Withey. Self needs to get off his high horse and take into account that there is coaching coming from the opposite bench and quit blaming the players for everything. He has the pieces to win the Ncees

Opinion: Obama still a tax-and-spend liberal

NAFTA/GATT cut jobs and tax revenue and the congress knows it. But its too late folks Wall Street has contracts with European Nations it would be a good thing for us but bad for bankers to reneg on a contracts especially with China because they would retaliate and pool together against our debt. Its not much we can do because federal reserve notes are not ours it is lended to us on credit. So the repugs in congress sees the easy way out by allowing Wall Street to be the federal government and not us as people. Welcome to the New World Order and this was long before Obama. So you need to rock your own chalk and get a clue because 38% of whites are on welfare and that was during G.W. Bush with a Repug house.
