Who Was It That Told Me There Was No Chance Bridges Would Be Back At MSU?



  • I forget…let’s talk…

    Kid just cancelled his meetings with various NBA agents. Strongly considering coming back. MSU insiders seem to think he will be now. MSU SAAAAALTY next year.



  • @BShark wow!



  • I have family that are MSU alumni and donors. They seemed pretty convinced shortly after the season ended that this was always a possibility and that it’s not Izzo’s doing. This kid loves MSU.



  • @BShark

    Freaky news. At least they aren’t in the ACC. The UNC victory glossed over the rest of the poor performances from that conference.



  • JJ thinking the same? Be totally unexpected, but, he hasn’t announced yet. Maybe he’s waiting for his court date?



  • @wissox court date today



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Best of luck to Josh in court. Would be amazing if he has the urge to come back. Probably cost us Juiston, but one more year of Josh would make us SAAAALTY also.



  • @Big-Clyde52

    Josh coming back would put us as #1 in preseason rankings and a heavy favor all year to win it all.



  • @Big-Clyde52 on the court

    It would also mean that I’d have to wear a diaper to work all season. (Worth it!)



  • @BShark I may have said that…I know that’s how I felt. Depending on where he was projected…may not be the best financial move…but if you are an MSU fan…you’re feeling lucky if that happens.



  • @wissox Josh was formally charged yesterday, Criminal Damage, filing for diverson, pleaded not guilty through his attorney. but ha to go to the Jail by the 14th of april and then when get his picture took and finger printed and will be a 500 dollar bond.

    Then he has to go back to Court on Friday for his court date on the inattentive driving. I’m thinking this is why he hasn’t announced yet- -just to busy with all this legal stuff going on, hope he get’s this all behind him, has a huge NBA career in front of him. Wishing him the best of luck awesome kid. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @Hawk8086

    Oh yeah he SHOULD go pro. Marcus Smart 2.0 here.



  • @jayballer54 “Awesome kid”? What you just described to me isn’t an awesome kid. Don’t get me wrong, he’s got time to establish a good name, but I wouldn’t call him an awesome kid. I’d say he’s a bit of an embarrassment to the university right now. I hope he can put all of this in the rear view mirror and as you said have a huge NBA career.



  • @wissox that pic of them on KU sports doesn’t portray a happy family! I’d think they want to get the heck out of dodge. Josh messed up, I just hope we don’t have 2 years of that gal and her dad harassing our program.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Not sure of the picture you’re referencing. But you’re right, I’m sure the coach will use many teaching moments from the escapades of that troubled young woman and the negativity that she helped create.



  • @wissox

    An embarrassment to the University? That is s little to harsh, don’t you think?

    Jackson did what many other stupid, immature college kids his age do all the time but since their names are not Josh Jackson, nobody pays attention or cares about it and their names are not on the front page of the sports section. I am not at all excusing what he did but I am not going to crucify him for it either.

    Have you considered that maybe Vick was going to do something stupid and Jackson told him…you need your scholarship, I am out of here at the end of the year anyway, let me deal with it? A stupid thing to do but that is what friends do. If this was the case, would it change the way you think?



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I saw the picture, mom does not look happy. I notice Josh changed his hairstyle, cornrows instead of the fro.



  • @JayHawkFanToo I guess you’re right, but in the national press, and comments from readers, then he was an embarrassment. More than one writer wrote about us in quite negative terms and some of it of course was related to JJ.



  • @wissox I think your train of thought is just a tad of base. - -Were you the so called " embarrassment to your parents at anytime in your life? Everyone including you make mistakes but not necessarily an embarrassment. - - -BUT to each his own - -Once again I will continue to say an AWSOME KID, You have a great day. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @JayHawkFanToo aGREE these are still kids- -just like we were at one point and we did stupid things - -just ask your parents they’ll tell you, they have thought we all were an embarrassment. - - Couldn’t agree with you more. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @wissox

    It really was not a big deal nationally. I visit regularly with friends in both coast that are big college basketball fans and most did not even know about it or read it and just ignore it. The only publication that harped on it was the KC Star and we all know its agenda so it is really not a big surprise.

    Think about it. How many serious scandals have there been with basketball players this year? Lots, and occasionally someone will mention it but it really is not discussed much. Unfortunately, modern society is pretty used to this type of issues and it is no longer that big of a deal. It is what it is.



  • @JayHawkFanToo I think it was an embarrassment. Not only to his family but KU too. Doesn’t matter what happened he needs to show some constraint. I wish we could hear the whole story, but still he can’t damage a car. I did dumb stuff but nothing like that. Those gals and guys represent KU and they are taught that. I still love josh Jackson and think he’s a great kid, but he did mess up. There are consequences.

    I never ended up having mugshots taken, court dates, stories about me causing 3000$ worth of damage to another persons car, never been cuffed, never been mentioned in the paper, so no, don’t think I was an embarrassment to my parents. Sure I made mistakes, but criminal acts are in a different category of mistakes. Mistakes are forgetting to turn off the coffee pot, or taking a wrong turn or whatever. So sure everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone terrorizes (no matter how misguided she may be) another woman. Sorry, it’s your train of thought that’s derailed.



  • Allonzo Trier coming back. WUT.



  • @BShark oh Wow! Season really depends on what Ayton turns out to be though if you as me… They will have as good of guard play as anybody. Or at least they should. I think they’ll probably have to play a 4 out though. Going to really miss Markenen’s ability to stretch the floor, rebound and guard a larger player.

    Not to mention that Stumps still has to break through that elite 8 glass.



  • @Kcmatt7

    Give Self that Zona team and he is winning the natty for sure.

    JR Trier, FR Ayton, FR Randolph, FR Lee, SO Alkins. Also SR PJC and Ristic, JR Comanche. These are all like 4 and 5 star guys. Crazy.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 And among those consequences should be 2 hours of community service per week to be performed in Lawrence 30 minutes a day 4 days a week for the next 50 weeks…



  • Tait tweeted that we shouldn’t get our hopes up that JJ will return because we’ll just set ourselves up for disappointment.



  • @wissox I wish that my hopes were up for this but Bridges and Jackson are in different situations. Josh has a very legit chance to be the overall #1 pick of the entire draft. It would be incredibly hard to pass that up. Has a potential #1 pick ever returned? That is a real question. Curious to hear any thoughts on who the most unexpected returnee to college was .



  • @wissox Oh I’m sorry I’m so glad that you can be the judge jury and convictioner. no matter the case whether you got told or not you was embarrassing to your parents. no need to try an and come off as holier then thou. I think your trying to come off as some saint - -I call BULL SHIT you are far from perfect…I think it sucks your trying to come off holier then thou. Damm Really? - -Maybe you need to step the hell back and think again. You by far don’t know the whole story. how quick you want to judge. worried about the scared program more then the individual that really sucks. shows where your train of thought is at… kids make mistakes. YOU DID FOR SURE. you know you did. dam I get really tired of this bullshit. more worried about the scared security of the program then the player. screw that almost makes me puke. have we gotten to that point - -oh the program? OMG really TELL ME AGAIN HOW YOU A SAINT. get off me. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY. - - - OK kick me out of this site - -I don’t give a dam some people here are just pathetic.



  • @wissox You said “I never ended up having mugshots taken, court dates, stories about me causing $3000 worth of damage to another persons car, never been cuffed, never been mentioned in the paper, so no, don’t think I was an embarrassment to my parents. Sure I made mistakes, but criminal acts are in a different category of mistakes. Mistakes are forgetting to turn off the coffee pot, or taking a wrong turn or whatever. So sure everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone terrorizes (no matter how misguided she may be) another woman.”

    You are right on point. Folks that ignore your points simply have a different set of values. We see it throughout our society. Why should it be a surprise here?

    @jayballer54 Your response here is very unfortunate. I have no idea what would possess someone to make a post like that on this site. You can be tired of this “bull****” all you want. But I’ll give you some enlightenment – there is right and wrong in this world and to harshly judge someone’s poor conduct is not an offense to humanity. It is actually what helps inspire and further humanity.

    That said, we all know JJ’s conduct was not the end of the world. We can all be hopeful that he takes his medicine, gets his diversion, and learns from this. Perhaps this was the best thing that could have happened to him. No one got hurt, and he can see how close he was to a very bad outcome. It’s up to him to learn from it.



  • Guys simmah down nah! You guys are escalating. Come on, what HEM said is correct; we have different values. Me, I think JJ found himself in an unfortunate situation that I’m pretty sure he regretted, but if I were Apples I’d be damn proud of my son. Regardless, let’s not get personal about this.



  • @BShark

    I have seen several Arizona games and no doubt Trier is very talented but is also an absolute ball hog. If I were a top player, I am not sure I would want to play in the same team with him.



  • @HighEliteMajor I am now done



  • Cya ya all we will never see eye to eye and I will not compromise on this - - so be it whatever, I will not sugar coat so this leads us to an inpass I feel sorry for you all but live your world as you see it - but I won’t sorry people are so blinded and /bias - c-GOD for bid this kid made a bad decision i’m tired of trying to sugar coat things - -HAVE A GREAT DAY



  • @joeloveshawks

    Bridges is projected in many mock drafts to be a lottery pick. If he is fairly certain to be a lottery pick, I just don’t see him passing on the opportunity.



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    He had a pretty bad game in their loss too.



  • @JayHawkFanToo I think it’s awesome



  • @BShark

    Much like Devonte, the Tournament was an audition of sorts for the draft and both did not do well so they are back.



  • @JayHawkFanToo but he is expected to be a lottery pick unlike DG



  • No comment.



  • Maybe JJ’s actions didn’t make the national press, but seems to me every KU game that was televised nationally, there wasn’t one announcer that failed to mention it. As well as it was covered every step of the way by ESPN. Basketball wise JJ is a great kid. But his actions off the court were an embarrassment to KU.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Trier a lottery pick? I have not seen any mock draft that has him that high, most have him as a late second round.



  • Thanks guys for some of you. most of you, You tolerated me - -I tolerated some of you, there were some that just had a vendetta - -that’s cool. you won’t have to worry anymore, I won’t BE HERE to rock your boat. - To some you are so mis-conceived on things I really feel sorry for you. - You come off as aggorant mothers - -that’s really sad.

  • Let it die fam.



  • I was actually going to lock this but I could only delete it, which I won’t do. Odd.



  • @HighEliteMajor And your right – -I AM very tired of some of the blinder bull shit, thanks for enlightening me



  • @approxinfinity Can you lock this up?



  • @jayballer54 dude come on. You already said you were walking away. Let it go, let’s talk about something happy or take a break.
