Here we go again in conference play. This time there are no injury excuses. How much time does she have left on her contract? I don't see the new AD pulling the trigger since he doesn't want to make decisions that buck the status quo. I think the ultimatum should be that she has to make the NCAA tourney this year or she is gone.

Let's just say the band had to move their cases for the first time this year. There was more people there in AFH last night than usual.

I attended most of the KU games with HCMW in charge, and I have attended a majority of the games during the Bonnie Henrickson Era. Also, I have coached both men and women's basketball, but I did not reach the level of D1 head coach, so maybe I am not qualified to comment too far,but as a fan and student of the game I won't be attending any more of the women's basketball games at KU, until some big changes occur. It's not really a matter of winning or losing, because whether we win or lose I see the same unacceptable play. What I can not take anymore are the following: 1) Very high number of turn-overs (mostly unforced turn-overs) seemingly every game/every year, 2) Very poor execution of fundamentals, especially blocking out, passing, over-all ball handling, and communication on defense, 3) Very poor focus and attention to what needs to happen at the end of the game (lack and/or understanding of smart play), 4) Lack of making even simple adjustments, especially during the second half of game play, 5) Almost always in close games, terrible mis-management of the clock, especially with KU in the lead, and 6) Too often (especially against Big 12 competition) the team seems to play without fire or strong passion and/or any true confidence (the play is weak and laid back).

Lastly, I can only imagine how tough it is to recruit in the Big 12, but during the last 5 or 6 seasons, I had hoped to see faster, stronger, and more physical players to match-up with other Big 12 teams. And also players that would play with attitude, meaning tough, strong, bring it on style of play. If KU could not recruit the elite players, and I am not sold on that being impossible, at least recruit players that would work extremely hard and develop into the type of player stated above. Most of all recruit players that are athletic, fast, and tough regardless how short or tall. Oh well, I have had enough, both with this thread and with the program, I'm done!

I watched the OU game, and I'm saddened to admit that I agree with you.

The team didn't try. The girls gave up within the first 10 minutes.

Defense amounted to standing around watching OU shoot. Poor defensive stances. Slow to shuffle the feet. One simple ball screen was all it took to get a Sooner wide open for an uncontested shot.

That's not a lack of talent, it's a lack of effort. It's a lack of learning the simple basics.

Effort and teamwork isn't about how many times the officials tell your bench to sit down. Effort and teamwork is running, sweating, getting floor burns, and making your muscles ACHE because you refuse to come out of your proper stance. Teamwork is a refusal to let your teammate down by not turning yourself inside out to stay in front of your opponent. If they are more talented, at least make them prove it by making shots over your outstretched hand. Don't stand around gawking.

The team is lazy and sloppy because the coaches are not insisting on the team executing the simple basketball basics that are taught in basketball camps for 10yr olds.

Players that don't work hard and do the basics, no matter how talented they are, no matter how overmatched they might be vs any opponent, should not have the honor of wearing "Kansas" on their chest and stepping on James Naismith Court.

Fellow Jayhawks the best thing to do concerning tmcats is completely ignore his posts. Do not read or responds to his posts. Let him play his little games ALONE! With his type of crap that is the very best method.

If we can make this NOT about Tmcast for just a moment.

K. I have been a Bonnie supporter but I have to admit it is time for the new AD to start a search. This is just not going well. Out of conf. wins a are nice and all but BH has never figured out how to win in conf. and that is not acceptable.

Once again, KU has a lead and then loses it and the game. This time to an absolutely dreadful Missouri team. It is time for a change.

come on, miz is not dreadful. they've hired a new coach who has brought discipline and solid play to that team. they'll win some games. and i picked 'em to beat ku in this one for that very reason. they have an outstanding senior guard that went off for 36 against k-state.

ku may be playing bad right now. but i wouldn't make it worse than it is by saying miz is 'dreadful.' that's simply not the case this year. they beat texas.

If we had a single player other than McCray improve during their time here, I would agree. The problem is that Bonnie's history at KU is that she recruits talented players who never improve; thus every year we hear, "but we're young." I call BS, we're poorly coached.

I'd like to see us get a former men's coach for the women's team. Barry Hinson comes to mind. Then get Lynette back and another former WNBA'er to round out the staff. I mean really, we'd all like to get Geno from UConn but thats not happening.

Whoever it is, must realize they will always be #3 behind MBB and Football. The facilities, however, are now first class and the budget is huge.

I'm sure it's similar to KU's "Keep Quin" campaign from five years ago.

In the past few years, I explained the losses to having key personnel hurt. This year I can't use that excuse. This team always does GREAT in their non conference schedule and bomb in conference games. They just don't seem to be competitive.
