@BeddieKU23 How many players increase their shooting % when transitioning to a deeper 3 point line?
His outside shooting in Canada does not bode well for Grimes shooting a higher % than he did in HS next season.
@JayHawkFanToo Very good chance that never happens. Better than 50/50, I’d say 75/25 at this point Grimes is OAD. He’s already showing up as a projected lottery pick in several 2019 mock drafts.
Considering KU has no scholarship seniors this season, they need some players to pan out and leave early to make room for Hurt, JRE, and anyone else they sign in 2019.
6 games is what Beaty has to prove himself this season before the new AD fires him at that point or in November after the season is over. KU has a bye after week 6 so that’s the ideal time to fire Beaty if KU isn’t at least 3-3 at that point.
If KU is 3-3 at that point, give him the season to try and reach a bowl game and if now, he’s gone.
@justanotherfan D2 schools don’t offer full athletic scholarships to begin with, and D3 schools don’t offer them at all. Athletes who go to D2 and D3 schools aren’t going to those schools for athletics in the first place, they’re at those schools for academics because they have no professional athletic hopes except in very rare cases.
What usually happens at those levels is a kid realizes that athletics takes up too much time and they start suffering in the classroom so they quit their sport to focus solely on academics.
Kids who go to those schools are usually doing so because they are within about 4 hours from their homes and it’s a chance to keep playing a sport they love while getting a college education.
@justanotherfan I wouldn’t fully get rid of the transfer rule. I would change to where kids can transfer without sitting only if the coach of that program left the program. If the kid is transferring for other reasons such as playing time, that kid still has to sit a year unless it’s one of the already established exceptions such as a grad transfer.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
