Dotson looks like the fastest guard Self has ever had at KU w/ the ball.
Can he make bunnies?
Also, a player can now play in 4 games and not lose the red shirt.
Are there stipulations on when those 4 games are played? Surely you can’t stash a guy for the entire year and then let him play 4 games in conference tourney or big tourney or stash him on the bench for future foul trouble issues or anything like that.
Thanks for posting that link. If there is any truth to that story we are going to have a sports renaissance at KU and Girod is the right man for the job.
The disturbing aspect of that story is how we continue to be hamstrung by outgoing personnel. BGL with Zenger and I seem to recall good ol’ Lew Perkins doing some damage on his way out as well. It also appears Zenger was much more of a do-nothing AD than many suspected. If those with the funds would not contribute to fundraisers then that negates the one strength most thought he possessed.
I don’t want to be negative and jump to premature conclusions, but it appears KU has become the sacrificial lamb in this whole sordid pay-for-play scenario. The general public doesn’t care which major school goes down for system-wide transgressions as long as someone goes down and it appears all eyes are on KU.
Not to diminish hazing at all so please don’t take my comment that way, but I don’t even truly know where an incident like this lies on the transgression spectrum when compared to, say, decades of academic fraud. Neither does Joe Public. Whether this article represents irrefutable truth or just baseless allegations, provable or not, this garnered a big, juicy headline and unfortunately that’s all that’s necessary to slant opinion in today’s click-bait world.
I’d wager that we’re going to hear more and more things coming out now about our school and our program as the dominoes begin to fall. Mark my words: this is just the start. Unlock your cabinet and clean your rifle. It’s now open season on the Jayhawks.
Serious question: If kids are allowed to retain eligibility should they not get drafted, how is that going to affect recruiting new kids? Coaches already over-recruit to some degree anticipating departures. Seems like allowing a kid to come back will create more “force out” decisions to make room. So, is that really a better scenario? I suppose if logical deadlines are put in place it may not affect much, but I’d hate to see guys like Mitch forced out because a potential NBA-bound player didn’t get drafted and decided to come back putting the roster over the limit.
Speaking of great stories, the link below is a tough read for any parent but its again a reflection of how amazing the extended Jayhawk family is.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
