    I think the key for how this situation plays out is whether they keep winning. If the ‘Hawks go on a big winning streak, and Tyshawn puts up 15 in a couple of those games, I doubt we hear much more on this. But if KU starts losing a game or two they shouldn’t, this may become magnified.

    KU has a lot of basketball talent but it appears the team’s collective IQ would not break 100. Self screwed up by not suspending Taylor back in September.

    A lot of people thought the only thing that could derail this KU team would be keeping all that talent happy. Guess what?

    This is the kind of stuff that would derail a Roy team. For Self I think this plays right into his wheel house. He likes the AAU style players, the ones that have played 5,000 games before they get to KU. The bigger the entourage the better.

    “this team was built to go to the Final Four”

    WTF is that? Arrogant comments like that are why UK2’s fan base gets so crushed when they lose. What team isn’t trying to get to the Final Four.

    Keep it up guys. We are entertained soooo much more when you fall over stupid fan/analyst comments like that.

    Good point, “Cliffy” —

    These are kids who’ve always been the best players on their teams; who haven’t ridden a bench since Bitty Basketball.

    No one wants a corral full of nothing but thoroughbreds; there has to be a fluffer in the mix.

    it will interesting to see what you unhappy, looking for company losers have to say next.

    GH did not say a word until the first Jayhawk nonwin, now he dreams he can revel in the feces, he loves the feces.

    When the the Jayhawks were winning winning winning, GH had nothing to say, oh well, that is GH’s way. GH is a negative loser, and this BS is more of the same. I feel sorry for him.

    The silence will return soon. He NEVER HAS a nice word to say when people/teams do well, he onlt sees the ugly and spout the negative. GH enjoys kicking dogs, stomping on flowers and beating his kids for no reason. He enjoys the misery.

    This Jayhawk TEAM is the only team worth watching within a 500 miles radius, I dont understand all the jealousy, get on the band wagon, or be a loser like GH.

    The only problem with Kentucky is their similarity to KU. Yes, on any given night they can fill it up and look like an NBA team. But they also rely on a lot of young players and can look a little lazy and overconfident at times. To me, Texas is the only team in the country that has consistently played at a high level, and truly has found their identity and knows how to play within it.

    dude, did you see Texas struggle against an UNRANKED Teaxas A&M? or do you just like to spout BS because it sounds cool?

    Good point made by a poster about Kentucky…when it comes to talent, they are on par with KU, but they look a lot more hungry than KU…I agree with what GH said.

    They’ll blow out Nebraska by 20 tonight and all will be well, until they lose again at some point and Fescoe devotes 9 on-air hours to breaking down the loss.

    Interested to see how they play in games when Collins is off. The two games they’ve been challenged this year, Collins has been the only one to man up. Against Cornell and Tenn Aldrich and Xavier didn’t impress or look anything close to All American-type guys to me.

    Taylor is a punk…can’t believe he didn’t get in more hot water for his FB posts talking about hitting someone and dropping n-bombs…

    Controversy at KU! GH’s favorite meal! Get this man some Tabasco…

    Tyshawn Taylor was exposed as an idiot in the offseason and he obviously thought it was time to remind everyone he’s still an idiot. Hey Tyshawn, here’s your role: Don’t play like a retard that just snorted a line of coke and grabbed a basketball. Moron.

    Probably as good a time as any to get CJ Henry or the freshman Elijah Johnson some PT. They’re going to need somebody off the bench who isn’t a turnover waiting to happen.

    Taylor may have just Wally Pipp’d himself.

    @Jayhawk Fan – Actually, it was Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, who is 3-8 and somewhere in the 200s for RPI.

    No team plays inspired basketball game after game. Kansas, Texas and Kentucky will lose multiple games, as they will be taking every team’s best shot. All-powerful UNC lost games last year they shouldn’t have lost. It happens.

If anybody ever has a negative word, who cares if its true or not, to say about kansass then the little beakers cry to everyone. He’s just picking on my team….waaaahhhhh. I’ve never met a more self absorbed, shitty fan base.

    Actually, Greg has brought this up before. A week or two ago he said that a lot if players were unhappy with their playing time. Now, he didn’t source it and even when challenged he couldn’t point to anyone who was unhappy but he stuck by it. So, while his journalistic standards may be lacking, he was able to make a statement that mightor might not be accurate and stick with it.

    Of course, Hall’s comments were related to playing time and I can’t imagine that Tyshawn Taylor, a starter, is actually unhappy about his PT.

    ….just the same … I see the spread is 12.5, but I would not give 12 in any basketball game, to anyone, on any day. This game can just too stupid sometimes…. like when it seems lids are on the baskets. I sure hope we do well tonight, but who knows, and no matter what come tommorow I will still be Jayhawk fan, and you all will still be trash talking. I say once again, this is preseason, the REAL dance starts in March, and KU WILL BE be there, will your team?

    My goal every year is for KU to make the sweet 16, and year in and year my KU Jayhawk have been there, has your team? but yet,,,,, people around here love to talk crap. I dont/never have understand it, that is like hating/trash talking Nebraska Football. It is just not smart, but I guess it just comes natural for humans to hate.

    Jayhawk fan – Never said Texas was perfect, just that they have played at a consistently high level. You can do that even when you don’t win every game by 30 points. I don’t see how that constitutes “spouting BS.”

    For the record (since you seem to have identified me as the enemy), I’m not only a “Jayhawk Fan,” but also a “KU grad” and “season ticket holder.” I guess the difference between us is that I don’t fly off the deep end any time has the audacity to look at my team objectively.

    objective???
    Who are you referring to?
    Who here is being objective?

    I have never seen one word of objectivity from this idiot. If this blog thread creator (that is all he is) EVER said one positive thing when the Jayhawks were doing good, then I would not be as brutal. They played 14 great games before fecesboy wrote a word. This UNobjective goof ONLY CHIMES in when he can get a dig on one of the greatest Basketball programs in history. He is setting bait for all the other jrBig 12 school goofs to chime in, and so it goes. I did not start this.

    For that matter GH does not treat ANY of his subject matter with respect, all he does is spew feces. I show him the same respect which he shows everyone else, NONE. Maybe he will learn, but probably not.

    ahhh…geez. This is sooooooo something over nothing. I’m curious. None of you on your current jobs are sometimes confused as to what your role is or what you are suppose to do? So we have a kid who expresses he sometimes is confused or doesn’t totally understand his role and we want to tell him to shut up or get out?

    This from a site where every time Greg misspells a word someone wants to correct him. Where if I write there instead of their we have someone calling me an idiot. Hearne gets a DUI. Craig and Black Barbie break up. So we’ve established that NO ONE is perfect. That we ALL get confused, don’t know our role, or screw up. But for some reason we want to destroy this kid not over DUI, drugs, beating up his girlfriend, missing practice, etc. But because he said he is frustrated and didn’t know his role. WOW!!! You understand that 90% of the PROFESSIONAL Chiefs players have no clue to their role right???

    This place is good for nonsense and humor.

    Hey Jayhawk Fan, if you dislike Greg hall so much and think his columns are garbage, go away. You won’t be missed. “never has a nice word to say” waaaaa, cry me a river. Kansas is just so good at screwing up, that’s the reason for the article. Yet another example of the “Lack of Institutional Control” label the NCAA stamped on your program.

    I’m not sure Tyshawn’s comments were all that critical of Self. He seems a little introspective to me. He’s a very good player on a very good team and he’s trying to figure out how best he can fit in as what amounts to being as “average” as all the other guys on the team.

    Sharon Collins took a while before he figured out how to make his game stand out.

    KU’s got a program for whom the only season that matters is the NCAA tournament. I think that’s how Self coaches. Every organization — whether it’s your office or a sports team — is like a stew; you need some spice but you also need some potatoes. It’s all in the mix.

    Greg, this is coming from someone who likes to read your stuff (as I mentioned in my first post the 1st day I found KCConfidential)… but seriously, this act of taking away context just so you have a story to write is fucking ridiculous. You, and everyone else who put out an article pushing the Taylor-says-he-doesn’t-know-his-role angle, owes him an apology.

    Tyshawn’s comments — when taken on their face (and not when you’ve cut parts out that don’t fit this everything-must-be-contentious narrative you lazy fucks are pushing) — when taken on their face and in total, his comments are completely harmless and what one would expect a 20-something to say on a team as loaded with talent as this KU team is.

    So Greg, is this your new thing now? Are we to expect you to purposely take comments out of context (as you blatantly did yesterday in regards to a KK comment) and as you’ve done here? Or can you be a man and admit a mistake?

    ___

    GH: HB, I could not disagree more. The media is not the problem in this one. Taylor said what he said and he knew who he was saying it to. Burying it would be irresponsible.

    Monkey…I disagree that Self & KU only care about the NCAA tourney. If that was the case, then why has he won the last 5 Big 12 titles? And he has finished 1st or 2nd in his league each of the past like 12 years. That shows that he does appreciate the conference race, as I do. And JoJo…please quiet down dude. That just hurts!

    Timmy,
    You poor little boy, it is so sad.

    You are really showing your inferiority complex as a jrBig 12 fan. You should get some help for that. You can not go through life pretending it is not your fault that you chose a crappy jr school to attend.

    Dont keep blaming mommy, or your disturbing Uncle ( your odd missy B comments outed your abuse issues ) or anyone else. You can make all sorts of excuses, as you usually do, but you know excuses do not make you feel better. You know that you are a loser, a pathetic loser who chose to attend a loser jrBig 12 school and now you are fkd. Oh well, sucks being you, eh?

    But Timmy, it is time to grow up boy. You should not tear other down trying to feel better. Pull yourself up by the boot straps, and do something in life. Come on boy, you can do it, you dont have to be a loser forever. You can overcome your jrBig 12 mistake. Now boy, get out there and do create / build something. Go do some good in the world, come on boy. YOU CAN DO IT. good luck son.

    Wow, that was quite a post. You should stop because trash talking is not your strength. You are, however, very very good at having no friends and trying to be cool online in your parents basement while you toggle back and forth from kcconfidential and gay porn while watching your beloved beakers lose to a bunch of walk-ons.
    By the way, it is well known that Mizzou is academically superior to ku. Admit that the only reason you chose ku is because they accepted your 12 ACT score and you could also commute from your parents basement to school…DOUBLE BONUS!!

    Come on Timmy, are you kidding?

    The best you can do is the old parent’s basement/ porn thing?

    That is OK, we understand what a jrBig 12 noneducation will do to a person. No creativity, no skills.

    Moron U is the funniest of the jrBig schools. The things you wackys they do over there, … e.g. paige arnea, going to jail athletes carrying around pounds of weed looking guilty(please pulll them over ), jailed athletes calling the caoches wife FROM JIAL ….. etc etc etc ..yuk yuk , you morons sure do provide many amusing jokes for the other real BIG 12 schools. keep it up, you are funny.

    So just to clarify … when the Jayhawk win you have nothing to say about them? sthen you change the subject and you precictably stooop to the ole parents basemnt thing, sigh, you are not even worthy to type to … bye bye

    “Moron U”… You’ve got to be kidding me.

    When I was a student at MU you needed a 23 on your ACT to be accepted to MU w/o any special circumstances, KU had an “open admission” policy for anyone with a HS/GED level education, even if it came from a lowly Kansas school… ha ha.

    Now KU has ‘raised the bar’ to a 21 on your ACT (wow! just slightly above retarded!) yet the average incoming classes are still clearly superior at MU:

    MIZZOU
    Score Range ACT Composite
    30-36 17%
    24-29 50%
    18-23 32%
    12-17 1%

    Gay U
    Score Range ACT Composite
    30-36 13%
    24-29 48%
    18-23 37%
    12-17 2%
