This time, I agree with HEM

Over the past few seasons, I’ve defended Self’s coaching in early exits from the dance, particularly when I felt like the loss was more on the players than the coach. HEM always takes the coaching angle (and being a sometime coach, who can blame him, and I expect such an analysis to follow). This year’s exit, though. This is on Self. He couldn’t figure out how to beat a team playing a 6’4" 6’7" 6’7" frontcourt? Really? Self needs to find another assistant that can build big men the way Manning did. Lucas did a fine job on the boards, but our inability to outscore WSU in the paint was ridiculous. Anyway, I’m probably done for a couple months. Let you know if I hear anything good on the recruiting wire. Otherwise, God bless and take care for a while.
Agreed. I posted elsewhere I left the game after 5 minutes into the second half. Where was HM the first half? Did we use him at all. Why doesn’t Mason learn from diving to the rim and turning it over?

Checked the box score. Greene & Selden over 20 minute each with ZERO points. Lucas ONE of TWO shots against a smaller team? Zero time for Hunter?
WSU hit plenty of threes and we go to the rim without height?
This loss is on Self for lack of adjustments.

@konkeyDong Is this a first (time you agreed) or what? Landagoshen !! We got a spankin alright. Too early for me to try & digest this one, but I posted pre-game that Bill should get Mick in the game the first time LL needed a blow. That one thing for sre that I disagreed with. The rest-too early to tell yet. Like someone said, I just prefer to mourn in peace for awhile rather than say something hateful or stupid.

Why did Mickelson not play? Could it be they had him scouted as a foul machine?
@Crimsonorblue22 Actually as pissed as I was I might have typed Seldom.
I need to go cool off.

@JayhawkRock78 I’m very upset too! Can’t believe u don’t watch!
@Crimsonorblue22 As I say I watch till they stink it up which is too often and then use the DVR. At 60 I don’t need to watch them play like sh*t. I check the score and if they get back in the game I start up where I left. It has been the smart thing for me this year. I haven’t checked the stats but I would bet there has NEVER been a KU team build so many 8 to double digit leads to let a team bring it back to the wire or beat them-sometimes flat out like today.
Maybe Stat Machine or Donkey can assist.

@JayhawkRock78 You, me and the whole KU team, evidently, left the game 5 minutes into the second half.
