In a year when we are vulnerable, I think it’s better to have more than one opponent with a chance at the Conference title. More good opponents may mean more losses for us, but also more losses among them. If we hold serve at Allen and the other contenders have home losses, that may save us at least a piece of the Big 12.

RE: With or without Preston, can we win the Big 12 with 4 or 5 league losses?

I hate that ESPN claims we have back to back home losses for the first time since 1989.
ESPN talks about us, really? We should lose more often…
KU calls it a home game and sells it in the season ticket package so don’t blame ESPN - for that one.

I can see why Self has to test Sosinski a bit. This is one FAST Team. It’s not clear just any bruiser could keep pace.
A recent article stated that Sosinski had very fast 40 times in football, for what it’s worth. I don’t think just basic running speed is a problem, though “keeping pace” probably involves a lot more than that, including the mental aspect.
RE: Toledo Rockets - Tuesday - 7pm - Metro Sports and 38 KC
@JayHawkFanToo I lived in Youngstown for four years. TOP THAT.
That reminds me of the dialog between Dean Martin and Don Rickles at a roast:
Rickles: You’re from Youngstown, Ohio, right?
Martin: No, Steubenville.
Rickles: Ah Steubenville - why, that’s better???
RE: Alexander, Diallo...Preston?
@BeddieKU23 I agree. This situation reminds me of Darnell and Selby: I imagine a 9 game suspension and pay back the impermissible benefits.
Unless the car came courtesy of an agent or runner, in which case ineligibility is on the table à la Cliff Alexander.
RE: Compare THIS to KU-MU!
KU refused to play MU in any sport for 5 years. No wonder the KU-MU charity game sparked incredible interest.
KU refuses to play WSU in basketball. No wonder WSU fans would jump on tickets if there was a one time event.
There would not be the same level of interest for an every-year occurence.
Think of it as the Olympics effect. Have the summer Olympics every year and the impact would not be the same.
Yes there would be interest, maybe great interest, but please don’t suppose there would be the same level of interest as for a purported one time event.
By the way, in the recent Lawrence article, Self specifically mentioned donors to KU athletics as not wanting to play MU. Money talks.
