RE: FRANK WINS THE OSCAR ROBINSON TROPHY!
I find some solace knowing that Frank is still going out on top this year.
He is what I have always admired about college basketball.
The four year window of time where we witness the maturation process on so many levels.
Players like Frank, Sherron, Perry, Landen, Darnell, Withey, & Kahn are why I love this program so much. There are many others I could list, but ya’ll know them already.
RE: Who's playing like a Big XII champ now?
Be optimistic because this program, the one you cheer for, has won THIRTEEN STRAIGHT Big 12 Championships. Be at peace with whatever happens knowing Bill Self and Most of the players are doing their damndest to make the KU Legion of Fans and Alumni proud. When I sense my expectations for young athletes getting out of control I ask myself: How would I feel if this was my child? I’d be disappointed that it doesn’t always go our way, but I’d be proud anyway.
RE: Has ANY Other Big 12 Coach than Self Managed Roster Uncertainties and Apparent Chemistry Problems As Skillfully and Effectively as Self Apparently Has this Season?
The 2018 ego massaging-weakness masking-scheme changing-philosophical shifting-self imposed penalizing-DeSousa finding-ceiling maximizing, frankly surprising Selfian Masterpiece.
He has done it again.
It’s funny how we categorize professionals, especially Attorneys & Agents. Here’s a fact: I work with incredible attorneys on a regular basis. I work with shady attorneys on a regular basis. It’s the people, not the profession.
I’ve observed the last few days as agents are referred to as sleeze balls. Sure some of them are. And I personally know a lot of them are good ones, too. It’s the people, not the profession.
There are incredibly talented scientists and researchers. Some of them do legitimate, bonafide research. Some of them cook their data to gain the support they need. It’s the people, not the profession.
Some basketball coaches cheat, and some don’t.
Some referees cheat, and some don’t.
You will always have the Mark McGuires, Sammy Sosa’s, Lance Armstrongs, Jose Conseco’s, Sleezeball Attorneys and Sleezeball agents. It’s the people, not the profession.
For those who cannot obtain their competitive advantage through ability, work ethic, commitment to continuous improvement, and luck (luck=preparation meeting opportunity) their competitive advantage is relegated to underhanded dealings.
Its the people, not the profession. When you classify an entire group of people because of their profession, you sound uninformed.
