It’s Quentin Grimes and it rhymes with Signs

  • You remember “signs” in hypermodernity, right? You were wondering how was bate 1.0 ever going to fit that in?!

    Here is how…

    Signs are phrases, memes, and discourse not tied to anything in reality, just to other signs not tied to reality. Signs have replaced symbols in much discourse. Symbols are our form of speech where the symbol referred to something real.

    See comments below in bracketed caps.

    “Coach (Bill) Self lets his guards have a lot of freedom out there on the court. [SURE.]They play pick and rolls, a lot of isolations. [UM, ON WHAT PLANET THE LAST 5 YEARS?] You can shoot the ball midrange, pull-up threes,” [IF YOU MAKE 40% OF YOUR TREYS, OR IF NOVA IS SUCKERING KU INTO MID RANGE.]Grimes told Kels Dayton of when asked about signing with KU. “I can play on the ball, off the ball. I think I can be a dynamic playmaker out there. I think I fit in really well next year.” [MARIO CHALMERS THOUGHT THE SAME THING AND BECAME A 2 GUARD. SVI THOUGHT THE SAME AND BECAME A 4. SELBY THOUGHT THAT AND PLAYED 3.]

    Asked to compare himself to former KU guards Frank Mason and Devonté Graham, Grimes said: “I feel I’m a little bit of both. I’m a little bit taller, maybe a little more athletic. [TALLER? OK. MORE ATHLETIC THAN FRANK? SIGN, BABY, SIGN. Devonté … he can come down, pull-up, pull up for threes. I can do that as well. [AT 40% while running the team 40 MPG? SIGN, BABY, SIGN.] Frank (now with the Sacramento Kings) is really a hard-nosed guard, can get to the basket, draw a lot of contact, finish. I think I can contribute a little bit of both (while being) maybe a little taller.” [FRANK SHOT 40% AND GRABBED 10 BOARDS FROM THE POINT SEVERAL TIMES. HELLO!]

    Quentin, welcome to Perris Island, Kansas, where young boots sometimes find the recruiters were exaggerating some.

    But you could be a great one, if you stick around a few years and learn to make your bunk so a quarter bounces on it.

    “Ain’t no since in goin’ home/

    Jody got your girl and gone…”

  • ““I think if Romeo would just come to Kansas, it would be an automatic lock for the national championship next year,“ Grimes told USA Today at the McDonald’s game.”

    He definitely has the ability to sell. I hope he can sell some leadership to next year’s team… we are going to need it!

  • @drgnslayr It kinda makes me think he’s very, very optomistic - or a nut case…

  • @nuleafjhawk

    Love that Thompson quote… ever been to Owl Ranch?

  • @drgnslayr


    Wow. Thanks for sharing the quotes. Fine line between confidence and arrogance? Hope he knows that Bill is going to knock him down a peg or two the moment he sets foot on campus.

  • @jaybate-1.0 Actually, Grimes rhymes with rhymes.

  • @jaybate-1.0 You must feel pretty mighty picking apart an 18 year olds quote.

    I forget what the offseason is like around here.

  • @Kcmatt7

    Oh finish your degree, so you can lighten.
