RE: FBI...here we go
@mayjay More compensation from whom? The NCAA is not going to compensate anyone and hurt their bottom line. People have been beating this drum forever, and they have taken a lot of heat the past couple of years and have not really budged.
If you are talking about other entities like shoe companies I think it is as simple as they want people to believe the sports are amateur and pure.
I mean just on this board there are people that still believe that so I guess it is working…

RE: The Disappointment.
@BeddieKU23 Thank you. There do seem to be a few who are almost gleeful in feeling their cynicism has been ratified. I think they were the 4th graders who kept telling kindergartners there is no Santa.
Knowing how this game works, and not burying my head in the sand makes me gleeful? Sure OK if that makes you feel better.
RE: The Disappointment.
Kcmatt7 Sep 28, 2017, 9:01 AM @BShark I did find that Townsend was lead on Selby. And Wiggins. And Jackson. And Ayton. If we have a coach who is a problem, it is him.
I don’t want to rub it in anyone’s face. This sucks. Just don’t get mad at those who weren’t wearing ear plugs and crimson and blue glasses when we were talking about this, rationally, over a year ago. And now what we speculated is being confirmed.
If you want to continue living in a fantasy world, nobody is stopping you. Mute the TV and don’t read about the FBI investigation. But being disappointed in anyone on the staff is something you did to yourself.
This. This. This.
Remember when this first came out and KU wasn’t initially listed or involved in anything? Tons of national writers all said that other coaches were saying “when is Kansas going to be dragged into this”. Clearly it was pretty known of how KU operated. Not that it is any different than anyone else, but this was a Adidas thing and we are the biggest fish in the water.
I remember two summers ago I was playing golf with a big time donor and we were talking about recruiting and MPJ and Trae Young. I asked him if KU really had a legit shot at them and he said no. “There is no way Nike is not going to let them go to a Nike school”. He was told that by someone on the staff.
