“I just want to make sure we’re back to where we belong, at the top of the basketball world,” the 56-year-old Self told the Journal-World. “That doesn’t guarantee winning, but it sure guarantees you being in the game. This is the first year in 12 years or whatever that we haven’t been in the game to go to the Final Four or win a national championship.
“This year, we just didn’t put ourselves in position to be in the game and when I say the game, I’m talking about with a serious chance to cut down nets. (Missing out on that) hasn’t happened very often here, and I’m motivated to make sure that we’re back to where we should be, with that opportunity or possibility every March.”
@Kcmatt7 Well I have an Idea as to why the NCAA isn’t saying anything til april, MONEY. If some of these top programs are gonna get hammered, they don’t want the tournament numbers to suffer at this point. That to me is the interesting point, several top teams have players or former players on several lists that have been released. It would bad business for brackets not to include Kansas, Duke, UK and Arizona. Personally I think Arizona is trying to find the right fall guy by firing all these assistants. Whats crazy is it hasn’t hurt their recruiting as it appears that it hurt ours. Right now Arizona has the number 1 class for next year.
Also sounds like both Bragg and Martin could have the chance to be grad transfers like Hartzog or transfer down to a lower level to play right away if they don’t have the credits. I wish them luck but if you can’t make the 2 deep at Kansas, which I doubt any of these guys would have, your gonna have trouble playing for a D1 team. That being said best of luck to these guys in whatever they decide to do, I don’t blame for not wanting to ride the pine so late in their careers. Edit: Bragg is a injury issue as well according to LJW.
I’ve been going to Cape Cod since I was a kid, and when we go, the spirit of the place inhabits me. I love everything about Cape Cod; it’s maritime history, pirate and otherwise, it’s native american and puritan roots, and the hard but warm edge of the people that lived there before tourism made it a desired destination, which still lives on even as the old timers pass, it’s stubborn defiance to widen the 2 lane highway that runs through it, the most amazing amateur Summer baseball league in the country, a wonderful collection of museums and events focusing on the cape’s marine life, and walking miles of flats in the bay at low tide. I chase fish and pick up crabs in the shallows with my kids and feel timeless; it is what I have done since I was their age. It all amounts to a feeling of belonging, and being off the grid.
The Cape is changing. But it has changed with grace and a hidden power in my life that it has yet to relinquish.
He’s certainly at the right place if he does have NBA dreams which I’m sure he has. I really do think he’ll make a development jump at some point, could be between this year and his Jr season or Jr year to Sr year. Luke Maye of North Carolina had a few big games last season as a soph and now is their leading scorer. Not saying Mitch’s situation is the same but maybe there will be a point this season Mitch has one of those games where everything clicks and he builds off that.
F Nebraska and their wonderful fans (@wissox not included in that statement) I’d love to find the wonderful nu fan who sucker punched me after Nebraska beat ku in Lawrence. I think it’d be fun to visit him at his job in McDonald’s.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
