@HighEliteMajor I think I read somewhere a comment about him reverting when tired in game situations.
Or maybe I made that comment as a theory. It gets confusing after a few thousand posts.
@HighEliteMajor “so long as he does it the way I suggest”
That conditional guarantees your money is safe!
The problem is that he doesn’t. That is what the coaches complain about. Benching could be a motivator, but the dilemma is that if he still does it wrong, you bench him and lose the possible 15 pts on 77% shooting from the (2 foot radius) “field”. Where do you decide it is worth the tradeoff?
@dylans Gunther C always looked like he knew he was in way over his head, and as if he was wondering when everybody else was going to figure it out.
Herm on the sidelines always seemed to me to be in the clouds somewhere as if he was hoping he would wake up and find out that the game really was a nightmare instead of just feeling like one.
@HighEliteMajor Considering the money, opportunities for parties, routine high-level social interaction, and the availability of groupies in their lives, there really isn’t much that college can offer that isn’t available ten times over to a new pro.
And they don’t have any 7:30 a.m. Calculus classes with, my favorite memory of all, a 3 hour Friday night Final exam.
@BShark I As you speculated, it just recaps and quotes extensively from the WPost article.
@HighEliteMajor & @JayHawkFanToo Some random thoughts on your questions: I think if there is a difference it has to do with the apparent lack of anything wrong with what they did if the NCAA rules alow these things. (Whether the Dad revealed his AAU money to the school is missing from the story.) Also, the indictments seem to focus on the people giving, not receiving money. Finally, JHF2, don’t confuse the lack of news about other indictments with a pass being given to anyone. The important thing to keep remembering is that they apparently have the evidence in our case for the fed charges of wire fraud & conspiracy. Possibly a distinction without a difference. I would not be surprised to see some type of mass settlement involving lots more questionable recruits.
A note on my parenthetical and my mention of NCAA rules in the above paragraph: Seems a pretty bizarre set of rules to allow that type of arrangement, and it seems pretty shady when no one admits they ever got any money!
@HighEliteMajor Wow. Maybe you really don’t see the difference between a make-believe fantasy and one that involves getting excited by a woman actually in fear. Go ahead, keep breathing hard when you read sex-crime news stories. Your attitude is, thankfully, getting replaced by more respectful ones. And let me know how you would react to hearing a guy make suggestive and leering comments when reading a story about, say, your daughter or wife disrobing and being viewed by strange men without their consent.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
