Billy Preston - 10/26/17 08:15 PM

This kid has a tremendous upside. He could be as much a key to our season as anybody. When I look at him, physically he reminds me of a young TRob with a better offensive skill set.

Looking forward to seeing his progress.

We better stay healthy up top. I don't ever remember a frontcourt of ours so thin. Occasional foul trouble is a given. That is just part of the deal. We can absorb that. But we cannot absorb an injury up front.

I knew we knew we were thin up front. But after seeing it for the first time last night......

Re: Billy Preston - 11/01/17 02:26 PM

Lol this years frontcourt is 3x better than last years. Dok makes no threat to score Lucas look like a bad dream. Yes a little thin but much improved.

Todays article in the LJW says there is a Dodge Charger in the mens basketball parking lot with damage to the two front tires and scuff marks on the front of the car.

They cannot confirm that this is the car involved.

This is correct. 15 minutes may be a little exaggeration, but certainly not a week. Something is not right about this. The longer it takes, the worse it looks.

Re: Billy Preston - 11/18/17 11:47 AM

Silly scared rabbits. Trix are for kids. He waa on the bench wearing game sweats. That doesn't spell transfer. I love all the dot net idiots speculating what might happen. As always they know nothing..

Re: Billy Preston - 11/18/17 06:46 PM

I wouldn't think transfer either. Ineligible for the semester or longer is what I am worried about. I know bureaucratic wheels turn slowly, but it shouldn't take this long to "get a clearer financial picture on the car".

Have you seen the car? No way his family bought that for him.

He'll never play another minute in a KU uniform.

Misses curfew Thursday night. Misses class Friday morning. Wrecks car Saturday.

After last season's mess, we don't need more of this. Basketball apparently isn't his top priority.

And who the hell needs a car their freshman year on Mt. Oread?

I assume KU's compliance office routinely collects basic ownership information on any vehicle a student-athlete plans to operate in Lawrence, to avoid issues exactly like this one.

Posted by: AlOerter

Re: Billy Preston - 11/19/17 10:11 AM

Self says he is eligible. That's why he is still practicing with the team. The only reason to hold him out of games at this point is to protect against his possible ineligibility so as not to forfeit games he had played in.

He may well be cleared to play. If not, he will have some kind of suspension imposed by NCAA for impermissible benefits. Those suspensions can be retroactive to include games he has already been held out of (see 2 Georgia Tech players this year).

Now--Ft. Hays, Missouri etc. were, indeed, games he played minutes in.

I know this because i read all about them right here on KUSports.com

I saw the box scores.

I even coughed up $50 to watch one of them on Pay-Per-View.

Should I ask for my money back?

I'm no compliance officer. But my best guess is we are holding billy p. out because if he has really stepped in it, we don't want to have to forfeit these games down the line. You know, in the event he is declared ineligible.

Re: Billy Preston - 11/22/17 02:38 PM

I feel almost ashamed, like I am beating up on a crippled kid.

But, since you started it, and you keep getting back up for more--

http://www2.kusports.com/news/2017/oct/3...mens_basketball

From Matt Tait's article--

Few moments during Tuesday’s 100-54, exhibition victory by Kansas over Pittsburg State at Allen Fieldhouse had as much raw emotion and jaw-dropping excitement as Billy Preston’s hammer dunk in transition after a soft pass from Newman just a few minutes into the freshman forward’s Kansas career.

Later on in the article--

Self said after the game that he thought Preston would be fine and that an off day on Wednesday would do him some good.

He also said he wanted to see Preston play a little smarter so he could earn more minutes.

Checkmate. Again.

I think this settles it once and for all.

Don't get back up again. It ain't gonna get any prettier.

Re: Billy Preston - 11/22/17 03:25 PM

No one is disputing that billy p. did or did not play in the exhibitions. We know he played in the exhibitions. All I am saying is that the exhibitions do not count.

If billy p. nevers suits up from here forward, it's like he never existed in KANSAS basketball history.

Box scores for exhibition games are meaningless.

Why the dullards don't get that is nearly unexplainable. My 7 year old grandson gets it. My 87 year old mother gets it. Oh well, dullards be dullards.

Not to mention Cliff Alexander in an interview admitted they got cash. Simply said he, his 6 siblings, ma & pa needed the cash. Cost a lot to attend all the games with travel all over the USA 😂.

No, you miss the point or pretend to be obtuse. It's the difference between what KY's Calapari would do (and did!) with Camby vs what KU Coach Self is doing with Preston. Making sure it's NCAA legal is more important to BS.

On behalf of everyone who posts on this board, let me express our pure joy of interacting with you, and our sincere appreciation of how many people you can insult/offend in a short 23 word post. An amazing piece of work!

“My mom got tricked into something she didn’t know what she was doing,” Alexander said, “and we needed money at the time.”

The investigation, in part, reportedly centered on a Florida-based financial firm that offers loans for professional athletes.

PHOGUSHER, what a disappointment man. I never said KU and certainly not Self knew or had anything to do with whatever is going on. This is beteeen the money guys out there, the bag men, and usually a nod from an assistant. Like Paulie on Goodfellas.
Preston probably has done nothing. It could be a family member and sudden changes in lifestyle that makes the say WTF? Momma living in Compton one day, getting her nails did, and the next day waving to her new neighbor James Harden. 😂

I believe that his mother is in town, and it's truly wonderful they get to spend time together.

However, I also predicted Mr. Self would invoke FOE to cover for Mr. Preston in another thread a couple days ago, and we're starting to see that storyline emerge.

Remember, Mr. Self invoked FOE when he kicked Naadir Tharpe off the team for the whole naked pic thing. The "sick daughter" story turned out to be a ruse, if Mr. Tharpe is to be believed.

Hey madcrapp, bite me.

I personally believe Billy Preston will play again and soon. Unlike WSU's Casey, who wants to bring KU down to WSU level. Last I looked, WSU bbl is the most penalized program for a mid major program. Or any level program post HS.

Mad crap posts on here 9 times a year in 2017 so perhaps he doesn't realize my Beady posts have turned out to be all true. He's a money sucking, no talent, low level IQ, HS HC masquerading as our HC football savior.

If you have no opinions to post, why not tell off "kuco" as he dares to put himself out there on this board.

A possible reason why she might have come to Lawrence knowing Billy was going to Miami would be the compliance office asked her for something that required her presence.

Posters here aren't mad at you, just wonder why a WSU booster, Casey, wants to get on KU's board to talk bad about our program. Get on a WSU posting board is what I suggest you should be doing. What? There isn't one like this one? Thought so.

Well, UMASS vacated 5 games. All in the NCAA tournament from the time agents got hold of him. Not a large window to have found out anything really. They vacated, Marcus repaid the school. Calipari practically financed them a new practice faculty since his time at Uk. Cal is still highly respected in the area. Has a banner in the gym.

Camby should have gone the Lance Smith dUKE route. Not admitted anything and went on to the NBA. Lance got nearly 140k from a jeweler in December of a championship winning season. By all rights, every game from December a FF and championship should have been vacated. They were smart, never talked until after he was declared and gone. Couldn’t make him admit $hit.
Let’s go on with D Rose, was never found guilty of anything. I think after the UNC 20 years of fraud and 0 punishment, not hard to see a 2/3 tier level of punishment. Little guys much more likely to get hit.

We know better than that. Kentucky will never be s football power at all. An occasional good year or an upset of a top ranked team. I think it was 08 or 09 we beat #1 LSU. We do have 1 of the mythical national championships won by our great coach Bear Bryant. We were too dumb to keep him and Rupp. Rupp’s Kansas sized ego wouldn’t allow it. 😂

Any news on Preston? As the season gets ready for conference play and beyond, he could give KU a chance. Going to be tough to win one this year but upsets happen. KU would be equipped to do it.
I have enough sense to know we don’t. No shooters, we had a good run on them Booker, Murray, Monk. Not sure Vanderbilt makes it back, Baker, our 3 point shooter out till at least late January. He will be as ready as me I imagine. If Cal thinks Vanderbilt can get drafted 1st round he will sit him. So we are maybe Sweet 16, unless crap happens.

Unless Preston come from money, he needs to, or someone who monitors the players social media should keep up. Don’t post pics in front of Mercedes, Porsche’s, 100,000 in gold jewelry.

Preston if he's a talented NBA prospect most likely won't be in school long enough to earn a degree anyway. I hate to see his talent go to waste. I say f@#k the NCAA and head across the pond and earn some dough. Actually can he just skip college and enter the NBA now? Some stupid mistakes apparently have been made regarding his eligibility, what a mess! What a shame to see him getting screwed over. I feel sorry for the guy.

Get out of here with that crap troll. If there was an inkling of truth to that Self would have Preston off the team already. I believe he has much superior information on the situation than your watered down news.

Just sharing the information that was given to me. Just because it isn’t the news you wanted to hear doesn’t make me a troll. By the way, Trolls is my daughters favorite movie. So thanks for the compliment.

But Preston's mum came out and said for the haters to cork it, so that rumor HAS TO BE false

I don't think it was a booster. Rumor I heard floating around town is that an agent bought the car.

Give the car back or pay for it, sit out some games (which he has already done) and eligibility is restored.

Where is Jack Whitman when you need him ?

Where is Dwight Coleby when you need him? I can't believe he left. He would be getting some major minutes at KU, and definitely help out with rebounding.

Re: Billy Preston - 01/06/18 10:32 AM

Saw Dwight play the other day and thought he might be a little more dominant. Was a little underwhelmed by his effort. Only watched a few minutes so probably not a fair assessment.

He didn't leave voluntarily. Self eased him out the door, telling him his playing time would be very limited if he stayed.

Awww...the old and not so original "I told you so". As expected from this not so bright lot. Hell if anything he took my suggestion. Ok chucko....just don't blame the messenger. Hope Billy enjoys driving his Charger on those smooth Bosnia roads. Bottomline is we could have of used his talent. We won't do much in the tournament without him. This is perhaps the biggest swing and miss in Self"s recruiting history. Quite sad actually.

Re: Billy Preston - 01/21/18 12:37 AM

This whole recruiting scandal this fall took the air out of a lot of programs this season. I think Self and KU took the right approach in how this was handled. I don't know if Self caught wind of these actions early on and has stopped going after OAD players or if in some circumstances we are or were guilty of some of these actions, but we are not getting the names to come here and play like we did early in his tenure here.
Posted by: Jaycat92

Re: Billy Preston - 01/21/18 12:42 AM

I have said this in the past, but since D. Manning and J Dooley have left our recruiting isn't the same. I think Self is a good closer, but I don't know if we are getting the right guys out front and gaining trust in these young players from the start. We are not getting the same type of players to commit to this proud program like we did 5 or 6 years ago. I didn't mind the raw talented types like Tyshaun, Trob and the Morris twins. You could see the upside. Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins. Something or someone is missing.

Can you cite examples of early vs now? If by early names you mean Danny Manning, you are incorrect. Just look at the NBA players now playing that went to Kansas. Embiid is now going to the All Star game, for example. He is one of several good examples out there of current vs early.

Why would we? He didn't play in any regular season games, only preseason.

I don't think so. He qualified with his grades, which is what that category is for, I believe. KU asked for permission for him to practice while waiting for a decision and was given permission.

AMEN!!!!! I just cringe when I think about what would have happened if Preston played any games - especially in the Big 12.

Agreed!! He didn't leave voluntarily. Plus, didn't Svi take his scholarship?? While Svi was deciding whether to stay or go, there were no more scholarships. So when he decided to stay, the scholarship had to come from somewhere.

Why is it on Self. He can't control the greed and dishonesty of other people. Preston and/or his family knew the car wasn't purchased legally. Then they tried to hide and bury the paper trail regarding the purchase. I'm just mad at that family for what they put KU through. What if Preston had played Big 12 games!!!! UGH!!!!
Posted by: PHOGUSHER

Re: Billy Preston - 01/26/18 07:57 PM

Idiot hasnt even showed up for that Bosnia team yet. Of course why would he. Is he still eligible for the NBA draft if he doesn't play Euro Ball. That team only had 12 games left. Preston might be the strangest stories of all of Self's poor choices of recruits. Terrible move on Self.

You recruit talent. Kid has talent. Sometimes it's hard to know if they're going to be trouble till you get them on campus.
Posted by: PHOGUSHER

Re: Billy Preston - 01/27/18 10:46 AM

But with hundreds of individuals on KU's basketball staff I just think that all recruits can be investigated to the fact that there might be something questionable about possible financial favors. Do that before offering . Seems like there would be some red flags before hand.
Posted by: AlOerter

Re: Billy Preston - 01/27/18 11:41 AM

True. Maybe saw some red flags they thought they could deal with. Maybe not. Risk/reward. Maybe thought potential reward outweighed potential risk.

I guess we'll never know the details of what happened unless Billy spills it some years from now. Hopefully Self and staff learned from this. At least now they can move on and solidify what remains. This still has the potential to be a special second half of the season.

Re: Billy Preston - 01/30/18 11:59 AM

He finally showed up. Had 3 pts and 2 boards in his first game. Rumors are he is hating life over there. Better off riding the pine at old KU. The lifestyle would have been far superior if he stayed in Ltown....
