RE: Bill Self BITB
I beg to differ: on this one,
Larry Keating BITB
Keating has been a non-conference RPI wizard all the time Self has been our coach. I remember a journalist writing about KU “feasting on decent mid-majors”.
Keating was Senior Associate Athletics Director until July, 2011 and basically retired, but was asked to keep scheduling basketball and football games.
RE: Dokes mom
I don’t see any updates out there on her travel travails. The only Air France flight out of Abuja left very late last night and got into Paris at 8:30 this morning Paris time.
The Air France strike is today, Friday. I imagine her being on the flight to Atlanta leaving at 10:30. That flight is still scheduled. It may even be operated by Delta, in which case the strike is irrelevant. Assuming that flight, she would arrive in San Antonio at 5:30 P.M.
RE: NCAA Basketball Corruption?
… the FBI has recently gotten itself in deep trouble and we don’t even know the full extent of all aspect that were involved acting uniquely based on political considerations, with text book cases of conflict of interest and with complete disregard for the laws it is tasked to protect.
I really do not want to stray into politics …
In other words, you want to accuse the FBI without any rebuttal?
RE: Another Hypothesis: why Self is playing Graham 40 mpg the last few games
@Fightsongwriter Coach Wooden did not win 13 conference titles in a row. He won something like 9 in a row, then his successors continued the streak.
RE: Cunliffe and Bill's Messages to Him
@HighEliteMajor You’ve already responded positively to my ideas, so thanks. I do think we need to distinguish between fouling Doke and sending in a designated fouler. We should no longer tolerate an end of bench player coming in just to foul Doke. If that happens, either send in Mitch or have Doke avoid the fouler so that any foul becomes blatantly intentional.
Now, if “real” players foul Doke, that is part of the game and Self needs to make the tough decision. You are addressing that situation I believe, not the designated fouler.
RE: Udoka Free Throw Solutions - Photo Added
@welladjustedhawk … When aiming, you want one eye to dominate a bit…
When my daughter started learning archery, the teacher found she had a dominant left eye even though she was right-handed. She aimed much better shooting left-handed.
It would be interesting for Doke to test which is his dominant eye. The test is extremely simple and takes seconds: form a circle with both hands, stretch arms out and put the circle around an object about 15 feet away. Now close each eye in turn: the eye that is open when you see the object is the dominant eye.
If Doke has a dominant left eye, that would explain a lot.
RE: Bill Self - cost us the game?
Oh I just thought of a funnier solution.
Doke’s assignment on offense is to keep as far away from the walk-on as possible, period.
Imagine the guy chasing Doke all over the court trying desperately to foul him while the teams are playing 4 on 4. The burden would be on Kruger to stop the circus, and in case of a foul Self could easily argue it was intentional. (I assume off the ball fouls can be intentional?)
Even the East Coast media would have to talk about that game…
P.S. My ideas are only to counter fouling specialists and make the other team beat us using its normal players.
