No Silvio

    Welp

    It paints a different picture now knowing that this came before the KSU brawl. He sure helped us with Duke in the FF but with the damage he’s caused KU, I’m glad he’s gone. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.

    Side note… does anyone think that Self knew about this?



  • Officially done defending Silvio. KU really moved mountains to make sure he could stay, then the does a couple really dumb things and is basically leaving in disgrace.

    @rockchalkwyo I doubt it. It would be pretty out of character for Self to know about it and not do anything. Vick, Bragg, Giles, Jackson etc. were all suspended immediately when Self knew about legal issues.



  • So Silvio beat the shit out of someone after leaving a New Year’s party at one of the bars/clubs on Mass St. it sounds like.

    I’m guessing Silvio was blackout drunk if he doesn’t remember the incident, but I’m still wondering why it took LPD almost 9 months to investigate this incident and present the case to the DA’s office?

    This did strike me as odd, “Dorothy Kliem, trial assistant for the Douglas County district attorney’s office, said via email that the DA’s office received an affidavit and reports from the Lawrence Police Department on Sept. 30. She said the office received an updated affidavit from LPD on Oct. 16, then filed the case on Monday.”

    Did nobody see anything the night of the incident? If they did, why didn’t they call the cops? You don’t charge a felony for a minor tussle leaving a bar.



  • The time between the incident and charges being filed is definitely odd. But for them to file charges they must have some sort of evidence he did something he shouldn’t have.

    Exactly what I was wondering and stated. - - -WHY ? - -Why did they take 9 months to present this case – just don’t know.



  • Well. If this is true I’m probably done defending Silvio as well. What a bummer.



  • The hits just keep coming with Silvio. Pattern of bad behavior follows him



  • This post is deleted!

    Dave was hard to recognize in that scrimmage tape because he has improved his body so much. He’s dropped a ton of baby fat weight. It almost has to help him get out there and guard the trey.

    Self mentioned that Dave will be a big time threat in the low and mid post area. That will be one more factor where teams have to sink in if he starts dominating.

    Otherwise… we’ve got height and speed on the perimeter, and guys who can drive the rack.

    That all points to so many options where we can free up some wide open treys. If that be the case, even if we have questionable shooters, we should still hit a decent percent. I think Christian is going to dazzle on the trey.

    I’ve seen cases take 3 years to hit the bench. There are many reasons… waiting on a witness/evidence, short on staff in DAs office, etc.

    “I like Silvio and I defended him his entire time here. But I’m willing to bet we will be better off with his departure. Our best chances of going far exists when we limit distractions.”

    Worth repeating. I wish Silvio well with his life, he needs help and probably some growing up. Regardless… time to close the book on Silvio and move on.



  • @drgnslayr

    Agree about Dave’s body he looked much improved. I think the new Strength Coach has done very well so far with these guys.

    Agree about Christian he should be the top shooter on the team unless Thompson hits the ground running there



  • @BeddieKU23

    It looks like Ramsey has become invaluable! Thought it would be hard to replace Hudy… and it was… but Ramsey brings several helpful elements to this team both in strength and other areas. His strength/conditioning cred should be on full show this year!



  • @drgnslayr

    With his NBA experience I think that gave him the opportunity to excel right off the bat. College Kids are going to look up and buy into a guy with his reputation and experience working with professionals. Very smart hire for Self after Hudy left…



  • Big Dave has come a long way McCormackLoaded_t300.jpg



  • @BeddieKU23

    Christian shot 44% from trey last year and he didn’t even show full confidence most of the time. He was learning our system, getting used to D1, his teammates getting used to him. That 44% was impressive, though I think he’ll have to fight to keep it up there this year as he will have pressure to pump up more shots.



  • @drgnslayr

    He should shoot over 40% this season even with more attempts. Has excellent form and confidence in his shot… I’m expecting he’s a full time starter and an invaluable part of the team. He was a real surprise last season and im very excited to see him this yr



  • @BeddieKU23

    We are on the same page about Christian. Let’s hope he comes through with consistency because we will definitely need consistency this year.



  • @drgnslayr I think that he is a future pro



  • @drgnslayr

    Outside of Garrett I believe Christian will be the most consistent player on the team. That’s how much of an impression he made on me last season.



  • I agree about Braun. He rarely was on the floor and not contributing positively in some way . I will say there were games early on when Enaruna sparkled in a similar manner, then lost his way in conference play. I’d love to see that kid figure it out. With his length and stroke it feels like he could make a difference on both ends.





  • @BShark

    Good grief. Can’t defend that



  • @BShark Oof. I hate to be that guy, but some mildly argued with me when he left as I blamed him in the KState incident. I’m done with him. Sad story. Hope he can figure out how to avoid all of this trouble that he’s in the middle of.



  • @wissox You never received any arguments from me. So ready for us to move on from the guy that it isn’t even funny.
