    come on hawker dogs. Put up the money. Put up
    or shut the f*ck up.
    $1000 bet that KU isnt the national champion.
    We put the money in a bank of your choosing
    in an escrow account. Winner takes all.
    You jayhawk fans are about as big mouth
    idiots as there are.
    Take your monthly paycheck and put it where
    your mouth is.
    You all say ku is going to win it all.
    They are the greatest team in history (just
    like manginos football team)
    Now put your money where your mouth is
    or shut up.
    I’ve got $1000 that says ku doesnt win it
    Any beakers willing to take the bet?
    If not get off this board…and shut your
    beaks up.

    I can’t believe I’m the first to post. This is great. Well, anyway, I agree with Pollard that the 97 starting 5 is better than the 10 starting 5. Although I would take Collins over Vaughn. JV couldn’t shoot. Collins can take over a game. But I like the 2010 bench better. There are a lot of similarities though. Lastly, I would go with the in game coaching of Self over Williams.

    Collins over Vaughn, but Paul Pierce over Xavier any day. I’d give LaFrentz/Pollard a slight edge over Alrich/Morris. Probably more NBA level talent on the bench this year than in ’97. I’d call this a push, but if I had to weigh in, I’d give the advantage to the ’97 team because, like Pollard said, they were older and more experienced.

    If Morris and Cole played together next year, they would be better than Raef and Pollard…but not yet. And I’d probably rather have Brady than Haase.

    Greg why are you, like so many others, expecting Bill Self to go to the NBA? I’m not saying it won’t happen and if it does, it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise. But unsurprising doesn’t equal a done deal.

    I know a lot of coaches want to see how they do at the highest level in their sport and everything, but if you look at how few college coaches make the transition successfully it’s not a very long list and that if you put Larry Brown as one of them. They make a lot of money, but if Self was after money he could have gotten an enormous raise to take over at Oklahoma State. At KU he will be treated as a god until he retires (as long as he keeps being successful) but in the NBA he’d be treated like an employee and babysitter to a bunch of athletes who are wealthier than him until he gets fired (which happens to all NBA coaches unless they’re on the level of Phil Jackson).

    Again, I’m not saying he won’t go coach in the league, but why does everyone have this certainty that is going to happen?

    Oh, and jojo, what kind of odds are you giving me. if I’m giving you 64 teams and you’re giving me one, you need to pay for the privilege. But depending on the odds you give me, I’ll bet a hundred bucks (sorry, I don’t bet what I can’t afford to lose) as long as you give me a side bet of another hundred bucks that KU makes it farther than your Big Ten-bound Tigers in the tournament. We don’t need to escrow the money, we can just let Greg Hall hold it for us.


    GH: Coaches just eventually retire or move on…very few remain in place for 15-20 years anymore. Self is too young to retire and I believe he would enjoy the challenge that the NBA would bring.

    Wow what a load of crap – lets see $1000 bet of KU vs. the field – such a big risk there!

    Tell you what dog boy – I will bet $1000 KU wins a national championship before MU makes a final 4.

    Put up or shut the fuck up dogboy.

    Greg, I agree with you that moast coaches retire or move on and that Self is too young to retire, but he is sort of a special situation, don’t you think? Most college coaches move on to better jobs but they stay in college. Mark Turgeon left Jackson State because Wichita State was a better job but he left WSU for Texas A&M because A&M is a better job. The difference for Self is that there are very few jobs that would be considered “better” than KU. That’s not bragging but it’s true of a select few programs like KU, UNC, Kentucky, UCLA, Duke and probably a few more. The coaches at THOSE gigs don’t tend to leave them easily unless they get fired or run out of town (Kentucky’s last two coaches being prime examples of those instances and Larry brown being noteworthy because he always leaves), Roy being another obvious exception. But it’s worth remembering that he left KU for another one of those jobs.

    But once you get to one of those “pinnacle” gigs, the coaches tend to stay. Not always, as shown by Rick Pitino, but mostly those coaches leave those jobs by retiring or by termination, not by going to The League and not by taking another job in college.

    The real story here was Scott’s appearance on Soren’s program. He seems to have an association with 610 and obviously he had the fight with K.K. So I would love to know what the inside story is about him on Soren’s show.

    Channel 9 revealed who(not a name) was buying the tickets. It was just one local guy. But I also heard a report that the community bought the ticket for him.

    You’re right about Pete Carroll leaving a “pinnacle” job for the pros, but I never said it didn’t happen. I never even said that Bill Self wouldn’t leave. All I’m saying is that it isn’t often that someone leaves a job like UCLA to take a “better” job or even, all that frequently, to go to the professional league in his sport. Most of the time those coaches leave those jobs because they retire or get fired.

    And with Pete Carroll you could make the case that he was hightailing it out of USC because he knew the NCAA cops would soon be knocking on his door. There is little doubt that his AD was going to be on the hot seat and there are still a lot of publicly unanswered questions about, among other things, Reggie Bush. With the likelihood of some self-imposed penalties as well as the possibility of NCAA-imposed probation, leaving now was pretty good timing, if you want to look at it cynically. Also, Carroll had been a failure (or at least a mediocrity) when he’d been to the NFL and it’s possible that he had an itch to get back and prove he could do it. Which Bill Self admittedly might also have in one form or another.

    If anyone had the time to figure out how many high-level college coaches leave high-level programs to take a different college gig or “go league” and figure out how successful they were at the job they took, it would be interesting. I have no idea, but I’d bet that it doesn’t happen that often and when it does, it’s not typically a successful venture at the new place.

    JimmyD, that is an impressive pull. Calvin Rayford in the wayback machine!

    I’d take the ’97 team over the ’10 season at this time of the season.

    But by early March I think I might pick the ’10 team because of the bench and I know Bill will have them tough by then.

    Pollard’s sounding a tad cocky, especially considering he was held scoreless in that devastating loss. And Lafrentz scored 2 points in the first half in that game. I can’t imagine a Self team having his 2 best inside guys held to just 2 points in the opening half.

    Roy’s very early teams were fearless with guys like Adonis Jordan, Rex Walters, Alonzo Jamison, Mark Randall, Steve Woodberry, Richard Scott…

    I loved the ’97 team, but most of the guys were a little reserved and/or hesitant. Jaque was GREAT, but wasn’t a scorer. Pollard and Lafrentz got out-toughed sometimes. And Pierce always seemed like he could be much more aggressive scoring.

    The toughest most aggressive guy on that team was Haase, and he had a wrist injury to deal with.

    Dick Kaegel is what you would call old-school. From another era–the one in which the beat writer considered himself a quasi-employee of the team he covered. He was that way in St. Louis with the P-D, he was that way in KC with the Star, and now he has made the relationship more formalized with his MLB.com job. Every time I read his byline, my mind sees black-and-white stock footage of Stan Musial and Marty Marion, and I feel I should be wearing a straw hat.

    Did Soren ask Pollard how his last game as a Jayhawk was? I can remind the peanut gallery: Pollard, zero points, fouled out vs. Arizona, and he could be seen laughing about something under his towel over his head.

    I know I wasn’t laughing then.

    Jimmy Johnson one of the few coach’s to have a successful pro career after a successful college with a high ranking team. Don’t really count Switzer because he was just taking over the status quo.

  21. Anonymous says:

    How about the ’86 KU team?

    Cedric Hunter, Greg Dreiling, Ron Kellogg, Calvin Thompson, Danny Manning and a decent backup at guard, a guy named Mark Turgeon.

  22. Anonymous says:

    Rick, those were the only two I could come up with that were even reasonably successful and I agree with you about discounting whatever Switzer accomplished. But for every Jimmy Johnson there are eight PJ Carlesimos, four Mike Montgomerys and two Bobby Petrinos. Not to mention Steve Spurrier, Rick Pitino and John Calipari.

    Nick Saban, while wholly loathsome, is an undeniably great college coach, but he was about as bad as Gunther Cunningham at the NFL and I predict he will be at Alabama for a really long time. Once you get a job like ‘Bama, you don’t quit. At least not often. Saban could be the one that proves Greg Hall’s point, though, about Bill Self. Again, I don’t know if it will happen or not, but if Self leaves KU and coaches the OKC Thunder (for example) and washes out of the NBA, I won’t be too surprised to see him one day coaching his alma mater.

  23. Anonymous says:

    Gavin-again concur. And just for the record. I see Self as a lifer unless someone makes him angry or some sort of violations found. I by no means meant to imply I agreed with Greg’s thought. Just throwing names out there.

    Dear iPad:

    Thank you for being another expensive piece of electronic technology that nobody really needs. As you know, many of us will end up purchasing you after we succumb to your clever marketing campaign that convinces people they need something they have lived without their entire lives. We look forward to your second and third updated versions that will surely “work the bugs out” while so many of us are currently rushing out to snatch up this expensive first version you have just rolled out. Never mind the fact that we are already toting around a laptop, an iPhone, an iPod and have a really useless, gawdy GPS stuck on our car dashboard…we will buy into your marketing campaign and justify the purchase of our GPS by using it to steer us in the direction of the nearest Apple store, which we should already know how to locate in the first place since it’s less than 5 miles from our house. After arriving home with our newly purchased iPad, we will be sure to immediately log in to our Facebook, MySpace and Twitter accounts to let everyone know what we did today. After that we’ll post about it on our personal blog and then text everyone we know to brag. We owe all this feeling of necessity and our continued obsession with gadgets to you iPad, for it’s you who keeps the flame burning until the next unnecessary electronic toy comes along to woo us into submission.

    As opposed to just saying how great the MIGHTY KANSAS JAYHAWKS MENS BASKETBALL TEAM looks this year …. they will talk about EVERYTHING ELSE, except that ….. duurrrrr ….. duh, they talk about Bill Self leaving, they compare this team to the atmoshere on Mars, they twiddle our fingers, offer up stupid bets …. twisting turning …. ANYTHING besides saying how good we look, it is funny.

    I admire KSU for knocking off Tx at #1, but ……
    mu sucks donkey balls, that stupid jrBIG 12 school has never done a freeking thing, EVER.

    Kansas has won 38 of the last 40 meetings with Kansas State dating back to the 1994 season.

    The Jayhawks hold a 177-90 all-time series advantage over the Wildcats, including a 72-44 mark in games played in Manhattan and a 20-1 record in Bramlage Coliseum. Since 1984, Kansas is a mindboggling 25-1 in games played in Manhattan.

    From Feb. 2, 1994, Kansas won 31 straight against Kansas State before the Wildcats halted the streak with a 59-55 victory in Allen Fieldhouse on Jan. 14, 2006.

    Since the inception of the Big 12, KU holds a 30-2 record against Kansas State

And you’re telling the truth. Your mom told me you won’t get out of bed for $50.00. She says your jobless butt won’t get out of bed except to eat, crap, change the channel, or write stupid sh*t on the computer. Hey why don’t you get a job and find a girl. Stop being a mooch. Their is my intelligent post to you. Get a LIFE son!!! Don’t spend all your days and nights writing Hearne, Greg, Me. Sharing your male on male desires. Take some college classes to make up for that poor MU education you got. Maybe you’ll learn to really debate someone and have intelligent conversation instead of just calling them gay names. Your mom says that she’d be amazed if you would run because its hard just to get you to walk. Stop watching Dexter, Star Trek and Wheel Of fortune. Do something productive in your life. Show you are a man and race Greg. Then see if you can lose some weight and maybe get on biggest loser. That name fits you. Good luck. I’ll continue to try to motivate your sorry as*.
