Preston, Doke, Malik, Graham and ..........Svi, Legerald, Cunliffe(after semester), Garrett and Lightfoot. Seems to me we are solid heading into next year.

Sure looks like a Hi-lo offensive format for our talent next season. Preston doesn't appear to be as athletic as Jackson.

Frank Jackson is now entering the draft...........smells like a Duvall landing at Cameron Indoor.

The hint that DC is likely going to transfer out sort of bums me out. He was coming on sort of strong towards the end of last season.

The kids come, the kids go. It's a revolving door. Hard to get attached.

I tend to agree with you Michhawk.

And I think we're gonna be exposed in the paint again next year. Doke will do fine, but the other three (Preston, Whitman and Lightfoot) can't play the 5 spot and are not true traditional post players. Just like Carlton Bragg.

Let's hope for a big year from Preston.

If Doke is the real deal, his back up won't matter.

DC moving on is a strange play. Gotta believe with our current depth he was going to be the first big off the bench.

Very strange. This off season is very strange.

Tevon Duvall signed with Duke in 5/15. Bad news for Bill Self.

The writing is on the wall. Popovich and his Spurs will win the NBA Title. Popovich retirs...GM Buford says Bill come on down. Bill does...KU falls into mediocrity. Something is amiss when Bill can't land a recruiting class as good as Mizzou.

The most KU basketball loving poster I know on the dot net quit posting a month ago. This individual is privy to a lot of going ons with Kansas hoops. I am afraid he knows that something bad is going on with the program. Of course I hope not but there is a weirdness to this recruiting season.

What does misery have to do with anything? Are you a misery fan. I kind of suspected you were. Explains some things that's for sure.

It's no different than any other year. No one expected Duval to come to KU. He's been headed for Duke all the way. As for more transfers than usual, Bill always takes the best available, and he needed experience for next year when we will lose a lot. And Missouri can't really take credit. It's their new coach who attracted the players. No doubt all of them will be sorry.

I pegged you as misery tiger knobgobbler a long time ago. All the time you spent on your knees these last few weeks buffing their helmet just proves it.

I don't really like whats happening with this recruiting class as well. DC was a valuable asset moving into next season. Bigs that can rebound and guard are not a dime of dozen. I am pretty sure he was asked to leave, and got his schollie pulled.

I too, smell a Spurs landing coming. As far as Mizzou goes, Martin couldn't coach his top 10 talent at Cali, why will it be different at Mizzou?

HCBS seems like an odd hire for the nba's best franchise. I don't buy it.

I do buy HCBS to the league. Just not the spurs.

I think too much is being made of Self’s transfers approach. First, it would seem that he had some available that were too good to pass up. Second, it seems that he has a harder time obtaining multiple one and done than Cal. Getting some good transfers that have a year of playing time under their belt is better than a bunch of unproven one and done. It was just five years ago that Cal’s bunch of one and done only made it to the NIT. Third, I think we are seeing Self becoming more and more flexible. This past season he moved away from the high/low system (he was forced to). He now may be moving more to utilizing transfers than before because he sees a need to if he’s going to get the year end trophy. I may be all wet, but I don’t see Self getting ready to jump ship to the NBA. Neither is there any school that would be tempting to him. I think he desires another NCAA championship as much or more than any of us, and he wants to get it at Kansas, the ultimate NCAA coaching chair. It was hot when he arrived, it’s getting hotter. Self is not one to pass up a challenge.
