The ESPN Insider headline is "Rumors: Self Already Unhappy with Henry."

I don't have a subscription.

Maybe they confuse that with Coach Self coaching Henry.
I am sure coach pushes all of his players.

Wow, a little exaggeration there. They take a quote Bill gave the Star and extrapolate that Bill's unhappy with Henry's effort and he might be a disappointment. That's really irresponsible.

No. Just a headline. All the rumors does is link you to a local article. Since the LJW fails at that, ESPN uses this article from The Star.


"Although Xavier Henry did score 14 points last night against Fort Hays State, coach Bill Self was not happy with his effort.

Henry still is struggling to learn how to use his natural talent to affect the game. Self spoke with The Kansas City Star and said, "He's a strong guy that can make plays through his strength. He can use his body to drive it, to get fouled, for rebounding.""

He wasn't happy with Tyshawn last night either. I think when Self says he is happy with everyone and everything we will be cutting down the nets. Until then I assume he won't be happy with someone or something.

You left out the second part, where Insider suggested Henry isn't an instant-impact guy.

He doesn't have to be. We have Tyshawn and his thumb to take care of that.

Speaking of getting kicked in the nuts. Last night at the game Big Jay was climbing over the rail at the back of the student section and slipped his way into a nut cracker. He went down in the aisle and laid there for a minute or so. Students were laughing and trying to help him get up but it was pretty obvious he just wanted to lay there and catch his breath.

Then later in the game same Big Jay tried to pull of some kind of gymnastics move after a made FT and ended up on his back....rough nut errr night for Big Jay. Guess it is Exhibition/warm up season for him too.

This is the kind of thing kevin kietzman will turn into an entire program.

"Espn is reporting self is not happy with x henry,sounds like even more trouble for the jayhawks folks. Our staff is currently working on getting a statement from the athletic department but they have not returned our calls as of yet"

Folks... get used to this.


ESPN and all the major sports media mongers will be trying to find faults with Kansas because we are the clear cut favorites right now.

It comes with the territory. Every story will be about "Who can knock off Kansas??" "What is Kansas' weakness?" "When will they lose their first game?"

This is predictable. They do it every year to the best team. It generates ratings and page visits because every fan of every half decent team in the country is looking at KU and hoping we get knocked off (especially if their team is the one that pulls it off.)

They literally build up a team over the summer to be world beaters. Then the season starts, and they start tearing us down.

We are currently King of the Hill. Everyone is trying to climb up there. Get used to it.

As many others have said, this is in part poor journalism. I would also suspect that since this is "Insider" content, they are using that sort of a headline as a tease to try to entice new subscribers.

While it's not kosher to post complete content from subscription sites on this board, I think that ESPN (and any others who use this tactic) get what's coming to them when members support each other by quickly posting the gist of what lies behind these "fishing" headlines.
