This year's motto....


But as he awaits the dawn of a season with so many questions and even more doubts, Self said he keeps remembering something Collins said during that unexpected 2008-09 season.

At one point a reporter asked Collins if he was as surprised as everyone else at what his team had done. The guard’s bemused answer still rings in his coach’s ear and will be the motto for this unsung group all year.

“I remember Sherron said, ‘It doesn’t matter who plays. This is Kansas,'’’ Self said. “And I think our guys believe that. The pieces may change, but there is always that confidence there.’’

Nice. There's no denying that confidence and your head being in the right place goes a long way.

Makes me sick that 500 people have seen this quote and 1 person took the time to respond.

This quote is what makes our program. It involves trust, hope, faith, and history.

Love this program.

Jensen - It's a great quote. I just wonder if Sherron really said those exact words and if he would have said them had he not seen minutes. The unfortunate thing is not enough recruits buy in to the Kansas mystique and to them it does matter "who plays" - too much.

Kansas gave Sherron an education and a diploma after 7 1/2 semesters. It would be nice if Sherron was quoted by the University for saying something along the lines of how an inner city kid from Chicago with a dim future can succeed academically at KU. Call me names but that's what impressed me most about Sherron and his tenure at KU (more than anything he achieved on the basketball court) - that he graduated and got a diploma.

I agree. The diploma is forever, and it didn't take him 14 years to get it.

Well, I mostly agree although some (Rawker and others) would certainly disagree that it does matter who plays. I certainly hope our players would believe in that, but there's always a few who don't and end up transferring.
