The Rodney meltdown has me over here as well. I have been a member here for a bit but have not utilized this site until now. Enough is enough from both the .com and the .net. Ridiculous.
Great pickup for KU to add some depth in the bigs. I agree that this may signal the end of the Mickelson era at KU. It also seems pretty apparent that Perry Ellis is only going to have success against smaller, less athletic players and that we need more size and aggressiveness to counter against bigger, stronger opponents. Not sure how Ellis ended up at this point. He really doesn’t seem to have progressed past where he was last year.
I would love to see KU pick up Zimmerman as well but I just don’t see us being ahead of either UK or UNLV. I do keep trying to remind myself that Bragg has made numerous statements fawning about the UK platoon system and still chose Kansas but Zimmerman and his mother especially seem to spend a lot of time raving about UK and Cal.
With Selden’s struggles I wouldn’t mind seeing a player like Brown or Newman sign. A guy that can flat out fill it up from outside would be a perfect complement to this team. Greene has shown signs of it but cannot keep his mind right off the court and on defense to keep him on the floor for significant minutes.
Bottom line, there seem to be several good options out there that KU is in on and has a good shot at. Looks like KU will once again be in good shape heading into next season. Now let’s see if they can muster up the aggression needed to have success this year! So far, so good all in all.
