It really irks me how some smack so hard on Self as being a bad NCAA Tourney coach. The record says differently! I've updated some Tourney stats posted a year ago and have added information to, now for the past 14 years, the time that Self has been at Kansas, for five of the top active coaches: Self, Calipari, Coach K and Roy, plus Izzo as some consider him a great tourney coach:

Games won/loss:
Self -- 33-13
Cal.-- 40-11 (Including 5 wins vacated by NCAA)
C. K.--31-12
Roy -- 43-10
Izzo -- 28-14

Winning percentage:
Self -- .717
Cal -- .784 (.778 excl. 5 wins vacated by NCAA)
C.K.-- .721
Roy -- .808
Izzo -- .667
Four coaches are above .700 which is nothing to sneeze at (Izzo below .700).

Years in the Tourney the past 14 years:
Self -- 14
Cal -- 12 (including one year vacated by NCAA)
C.K.-- 14
Roy -- 13
Izzo -- 14
Calipari went to the NIT twice and Roy once during this time period. NITs do not reflect well upon a resume unless you're TCU. And Cal had a year vacated, again a bad reflection.

Championships won:
Self -- 1
Cal -- 1
C.K.-- 2
Roy -- 3
Izzo-- 0
Some say championships are what count. In this time period, three (except for Izzo) are within one of each other, with Roy stepping up to a lead of two over Self and Cal. That gives him a slight edge over the others.

The furthest each coach has gone each year in the tournament:
Coach–Champs–F. 2—F. 4–E. 8–S. 16–R. 32–R. 64
Self............1.........1........0.......5.......2.......3.........2
Cal.............1.........2........2.......4.......1.......2.........0
Coach K.....2.........0........1.......1.......5.......2.........3
Roy............3.........1........1........3......3.......2..........0
Izzo............0.........1........3........1......3.......3..........3
(Roy@KU...0.........2........2........1......4.......5..........0 –14 years)

Another measure is how many times did a coach not make the tournament, leave the tournament during the first three rounds or make it into one of the final three rounds?

Coach — final 3–First 3–Didn’t make T.
Self ............ 7 .......... 7 .............. 0
Cal ............. 9 ...........3 .............. 2
Coach K ..... 4 ........ 10 .............. 0
Roy ............ 8 .......... 5 .............. 1
Izzo ............ 5 .......... 9 .............. 0
(Roy@ KU... 5 .......... 9 .............. 0)

Let the record speak for itself, Self measures up well with the other four coaches. Yes, we would liked to have seen him do better. But the fans of the other teams would also like to have seen their coach/team do better. Each of these coaches have had similar equally good and bad tournaments. The bottom line--Self is NOT a bad NCAA Tourney coach when compared to these other four top notch coaches. When you throw in the season records, Self measures up even better, top # of wins, top win %, top conf. titles and 2nd in conf. tourney wins. It shows that he is a top notch coach.

Season Records:
Coach----Won/Loss—%– Conf. Titles–Conf. Tourney
Self..........416—87....827.........13..................7
Cal...........394—90....814...........9..................8 (incl. vac. record)
Coach K...409—97....808...........3..................6
Roy..........400-115.....777...........8..................3
Izzo..........356-156.....693..........3..................3
(Roy/KU...418-101.....805...........9..................4 – 15 years)

Coaches with top percentage of wins for all seasons with over 550 total wins to date from official NCAA records:
Rupp ........ .822 Started at Kentucky
Wooden .... .804 Two years at Indiana St. then UCLA
Williams ... .786 Started at Kansas
Tarkanian . .784 All in non major power conferences (3)
Smith ....... .776 Started at UNC
Calipari .... .773 UMass, Memphis, Kentucky
Self ......... .764 ORU, Tulsa, Illinois, Kansas (lst 2 rebuilders)
Coach K .. .764 Five years at Army then Duke

No coach began in as big a hole as Self at ORU, a major rebuilding job as was Tulsa. Remove just his first two season, 16-38 and he would have a .798 win percentage for 3rd place to date. Playing 3 games per year for the next 10-12 years and winning at his current rate at Kansas (.827), Self would either tie Tarkanian or move slightly ahead of him. Roy and coach K percentages aren’t going to change much. Calipari’s very well could go up (three years older than Self).

Final Thoughts – Anyone willing to trade Roy’s KU record, season or tourney, with Bill’s? I wouldn’t! In spite of our tremendous basketball tradition, second to none, KU probably has a slight recruiting disadvantage with UK, UNC and Duke. This is due primarily to location. Don’t shoot me, I’m a died in the wool Kansan, but my honest opinion. Would any of the other coaches have done better at KU than Self during the season or tournament? Roy didn’t. Doubt if Cal, K and Izzo would have either. And the icing on the cake – Self is now a Hall of Fame Coach! He joins the list along with the other four we’ve been comparing. Bottom line, Self is a top notch coach and a rare jewel of a coach. We are very fortunate to have him.

You must spend more time on another board other than this one. I've seen numerous times different ones on this board putting down Coach Self as not being a good tournament coach. I guess your phogy brain has a tough time reading anything over five lines long. Sorry about the Indiana thing, that was just one of those things that happens to anyone trying to put something together. I know that it was Illinois and have changed it. Don't forget to take your fish oil, it might help your phogy brain. smile

You're the one that needs the fish oil. I am the one that caught your mistake,. And who outside of West and maybe one other complains about Bill's tournament failures around here. I know the local yokels have to pump up themselves about all things Kansas for that warm fuzzy feeling. Really outside of KU basketball the state ain't got much going on. That's why they call it flyover country. Try going on a vacation and quit obsessing about Bill's greatness. Bottom line in as far as closing the deal tournament wise. Roy owns him.

God..power surge just wiped out a lengthy post. In short I actually appreciated 52's lengthy post. It was very informative. .I just don't find it necessary to validate Self's excellent coaching resume either regular season or post season.

No it isn't. You are cherry picking data to fit your pre-determined conclusions. The tournament is made up of 3 4-team mini tournaments. Success is measured by how many weekends you win.

The proper metrics are:

Sweet 16 berths
Final Four berths
National Championships

Making the Elite 8 only means a team made it past the FIRST weekend threshold - not very impressive.

Self has won a lot of NCAA tournament games with KU, no question. Has he underperformed against expectations? No question.

To get to an Elite Eight game, you go 3-0. If you lose, you're 3-1 obviously, so a winning percentage of .750. Yahoo. By definition, you can only lose once in a one-and-done tournament. But how many times has KU lost on or before the Elite Eight with a top 4 team (ie, a 1 seed)? Or simply just lost to a lower seed?

2004: KU held seed. 3-0 versus lower seeds. 0-1 versus higher seed. Met expectations.

2005: KU lost to a lower seed. 0-1. Did not meet expectations.

2006: KU lost to a lower seed. 0-1. Did not meet expectations.

2007: KU held seed. 3-0 versus lower seeds. 0-1 versus higher seed. Met expectations.

2008: KU went 4-0 versus lower seeds. 2-0 versus equal seeds. Exceeded expectations.

2009: KU held seed. 2-0 versus lower seeds. 0-1 versus higher seed. Met expectations.

2010: KU lost to a lower seed. 1-1. Did not meet expectations.

2011: KU lost to a lower seed. 3-1. Did not meet expectations.

2012: KU went 3-0 versus lower seeds. 2-1 versus higher seeds. Exceeded expectations.

2013: KU lost to a lower seed. 2-1. Did not meet expectations.

2014: KU lost to a lower seed. 1-1. Did not meet expectations.

2015: KU lost to a lower seed. 1-1. Did not meet expectations.

2016: KU lost to a lower seed. 3-1. Did not meet expectations.

2017: KU lost to a lower seed. 3-1. Did not meet expectations.

Self is a great coach, but a top-notch tournament coach? No, he is not.

I guess that depends on your definition of "top-notch."

He wins 70% of his games in the tournament which ranks 6th amongst active college coaches.

K, Roy, Cal, Pitino, Izzo...then Self.

Bill Self is a mid-major coach. He dominates the regular season in a crappy conference and then gets schooled when he has to face real competition in the tournament.

As I pointed out, you can go 3-1 in the tournament and lose to a lower seed in the E8, and have a .750 winning percentage. That doesn't mean you've had a good tournament.

What honest person would want to say that they have never made a mistake? I've made plenty in my life time.

No, Roy doesn't own Bill. When comparing them to the same school (KU) record and similar age wise record, Roy never achieved a championship and Self has. In the days to come we won't be able to compare them school to school, but we will be able to age to age. I expect that Bill will get several more championships in the days to come. Roy doesn't have all that many years left, maybe five or so.

There is a lot to see in Kansas. I've been all over the state and have enjoyed various kinds of and unique scenes and there's a lot I haven't yet seen. Only stuffy East and West coast personnel and other characters consider Kansas just a flyover state. That's their loss.

Thanks for your positive words.

Actually Phogy is a pretty good guy, sometimes you just have to take him with a grain of salt . He does like to try and get under your skin sometimes, but then he'll come back and say something positive. He's even responded in a positive way on this post. So I just put up with his antics and consider him a friend.

I actually enjoy history and looking up statistics from the past. I'm glad that a few like some of my more lengthy posts that put these stats together. Trust that there is something positive to glean from them. There's nothing wrong with looking at the past as long as one doesn't live in it. There is a lot to learn from the past, but the problem is that too many don't seem to learn from it. That applies to all aspects of life.

It's come from all over the nation including Kansas, just as it is with all other major basketball schools. And some of those who have done quite well in other schools have come from Kansas. Not saying that Kansas is the hotbed for recruiting, but we've contributed some excellent talent across the years throughout the nation.

I have no love for our conference. I don't consider it to be a "major accomplishment" to win it. It's a noteworthy accomplishment, but it's no national title.

We all want more NCs and final fours...but the question is who could you replace him with that's better?

Realistically, who would win in the tournament at a higher clip that we could get at KU?

The BIG 8/12 was, is and always will be one of the best basketball conferences in the country.

You won't have to "not love" our conference for much longer. There is no doubt in my mind that the BIG 12 will die with the current grant of rights. Then you can "love" our conference when we join some other that will spread us out over multiple time zones spanning thousands of miles. Matchups night in and night out against nobody schools that we have absolutely no history with. Yea. Love it when we travel to utah for an 11:00pm showdown on a Tuesday night. Love it when we travel to rutgers for a grudge match. Yea. Can hardly wait.

I'll give it to you that winning our conference is not equal to winning the national championship. But winning what conference is?

HCBS is one of the top 5 college basketball coaches in the country.

It was the best conference a few years ago. KU, UT, and OU are the only schools that I think highly of. aTm, CU, Missouri, and Nebraska were worthwhile once upon a time.

Of course, every team wants to win the conference, but it is watered down by the importance of the tournament in college basketball. Until the NCAA makes the regular season more meaningful, the conference championship is secondary to tournament outcomes. It's hard to have any love for conference titles due to the current format and lack of exclusivity in the tournament.

I absolutely agree that Self is at worst the 6th best coach in college basketball. Roy, K, Izzo, Cal, and Pitino are the only ones you could argue are equal or better.

The importance of winning the regular season is not watered down for me. It is not watered down for HCBS. It is not watered down for the student athletes. It likely is watered down for the millennial snowflakes that have the attention span of a gnat and a brain the size of a pea. But for those of us that know we need to enjoy the jouney, it is not watered down.

It's too bad you millennial snowflakes don't have the makeup to enjoy the journey. You missed a ton of fun along the road to the tourney. The indiana game was fun. Beating duke in the champions classic was fun. beating khintuckey in khintuckey was fun. Beating isu at isu was fun. that home game against wvu was fun. And so forth.

See if you can follow along on this: I said it is watered down by the importance of the tournament, and the regular season is secondary to the tournament. I did not say or suggest the players, coaches, fans, you, or me don't care about the regular season. I did not say or suggest that those games weren't fun or that the journey doesn't matter. Not sure where you got that from.

You disagreed with points I didn't make, and then you attempt to insult me because you disagree with the points I didn't make. Must be a generational gap thing.

How well does the Big 12 stack up with the top 6 Basketball conferences? JW says we are a mid-major conference. What do the records show? I checked with three different sources: Jeff Sagarin Ratings, NCAA Final RPI Ratings and the Final NCAA Poll. All three basically have the same results. Check with any other source, the results will be similar. So, to save space, I will just use the Jeff Sagarin Ratings as many consider he does an excellent job with his ratings. The following show how many each conference had in the top 10, 20, 30, 60 and 70, plus what percent of the teams made the top 10, 20, 30, 60 and 70:

----------------Big 12 –- ACC –- SEC – Pac 12 – B. East – Big 10

I just added the Top 90 in case someone was thinking I was cherry picking by stopping at the Top 70.

Note–the Big 12 has the highest percentage in four of the results and tied for the highest in one with the ACC. This also gives a pretty good view of each conference from top to bottom. Even the Big 12 bottom dwellers make the top 70. These results are not my opinion nor JW’s, but someone who is an expert in this field and it is verified by other experts. I guess if the Big 12 is a mid-major conference, so are the other five.

Please don't judge Michhawk too harshly.

He's one of those outdated right-wingers who are embittered because they can't adjust to changing times. They fear change and progress. So.they must demonize those who don't through labels and name calling.

Thus "snowflakes". His favorite perjorative.

Right-wingers think this is funny. They are closed-minded. When you label someone it means you don't have to consider their viewpoint on anything. Their viewpoint is irrelevant, because they are "snowflakes" after all.

He has a special scorn for millennials. For whatever reason, millennials are to be marginalized. Otherwise, their opinions might provoke thought, which is anethema to the right-wing. Being open minded and exposed to other points of view makes their heads hurt.

They want to forever live in the past consigning the rest of us to suffer there with them.

They even have a cute little phrase for it--Making America Great Again.

Roy's prayer before each NCAA Tournament, "Please don't let me meet up with Bill's team."

Somewhere on this board someone said that Roy owned Bill in the tournament. That certainly is true if you are talking about NCAA Tourney Championships and they were. So hats off to Roy and his three national championships. But that statement about Roy owning Bill isn't totally true. Roy and Bill have met three times in the tourney. Bill's team has won all three times -- 2008 -- 84-66, 2012 -- 80-67 and 2013 -- 70-58. Each of those victories were by 12 or more points. The largest margin, 18 points, was when UNC was the top # 1 seed.

So Roy may own Bill when it comes to national championships, but not when meeting head to head in the tourney, thus Roy's prayer. He has good reason for such a prayer.

WHAT?? Ok How? I'm not doing all that research but my god. Self had missing pieces and everyone knew that if Frank couldn't get to the hole and Jackson was in foul trouble, KU was in trouble. Lucas not being a threat and Jackson getting that 2nd foul put them in a hole!! after that Graham freaked out and tried to shoot himself out of the cold streak.. If Jackson doesn't pick up that foul they win that game!! CAn't prove it but that's what I believe!!!

Roy won 0 at KU.. has had a great run at UNC.. but I don't know if any of those top 5-10 coaches can say they own any of the others!!!

When jayhawk_4_life2 said, “Roy won 0 at KU.. has had a great run at UNC.. but I don't know if any of those top 5-10 coaches can say they own any of the others!!!”, it made me wonder how the five we’ve been talking about stacked up against each other in head to head competition. I made a chart to show such. These figures are based on the last 14 years. I tried hard to make this 100% accurate, but I don’t guarantee that it is.

Coach . . Self . . . Cal . . C. K. . .Roy . . Izzo . . .Record
Self . . . . ///// . . . 2-3 . . . 2-1 . . . 3-0 . . . 3-4 . . . 10 - 8
Cal . . . . .3-2 . . . ///// . . . 0-2 . . . 5-3 . . . 1-1 . . . .9 - 8
C. K. . . . 1-2. . . . 2-0 . . .///// . . 13-17 . . .8-1 . . .24 -20
Roy . . . . 0-3. . . . 3-5 . .17-13 . . .///// . . . 6-0 . . .26 -21
Izzo . . . . 4-3. . . . 1-1 . . .1-8 . . . .0-6 . . .///// . . . .6 -18

You can make your own interpretations, but I can see saying that Self own’s Roy, Cal own’s no one, Coach K own’s Cal and Izzo, Roy own’s Izzo and Izzo own’s no one. Roy and Coach K are the only ones in the same conference so they meet often. The "Record" column I've added is their overall wins/losses against the other four coaches. Looks pretty even except for Izzo.

I am not sure what you are trying to say here. What does "fell into" mean in your brain?

Both HCBS and HCRW are on the list of top 5 active college basketball coaches.

I believe what Bigdog is saying is that while Self started out with two rebuilding programs at ORU and Tulsa and took over a good but not great program at Illinois and turned all three into strong winning programs, Roy started out with two top notch programs at KU and UNC.

No doubt that Roy had to have the where-with-all to continue keeping both programs at a top notch level but he did have a running start to keep them great, thus, wins, in a sense, fell into his lap because of where he started. Self had to really dig deep to reach his wins and create winning programs. Self winning at KU was a continuation of his previous winning ways. Some might say Self is the better coach because of what he has had to overcome at three of his stops.

Both coaches are top notch coaches, of that there is no doubt.

Some of us have unique ways of how we phrase things. You probably understood what Bigdog was saying but just wanted to get a bit under his skin. However it is quite possible that I am misunderstanding both of you.

Sometimes Jim West is right...you stupid Kansas farm boys spin it your ways, Roy took over KU after Larry landed them in probation, Not allowed in the NCAA Tournament and minus a few schollies, What Roy pulled off getting KU to 2 Final 4s in his first 5 years at KU is miraculous. Actually trumping Bill. Accept reality outside of a few losses straight up with Bill ..Roy is every bit as good and with superior NCAA Tournament results. Now go milk the cows ya hick.

I'd like to see you try and raise the bountiful crops the, "stupid Kansas farm boys," are able to raise and help feed our nation. It's certainly not a task for anyone stupid so I guess that eliminates you from even trying. smile

Roy was handed a bad situation as the result of Brown's actions. But he did inherit a decent team left over by Brown, he inherited a great tradition and he only lost one scholarship, not "a few scollies" as you stated. It did put a bit of a damper on his recruiting for one year but he was able to get Adonis Jordan and also got Steve Woodberry. I don't believe Roy inherited anything like Bill did at ORU. In the previous nine years ORU only had two winning seasons and in the previous season had a 5-22 record. Bill had a lot to overcome in his first gig.

I was only trying to give an explanation of what I thought Bigdog was saying. However, neither of us said anything about Roy being a bad coach. In fact I said that both Roy and Self are great coaches. But don't try and make the spin that Bill had an easier task than Roy in their first gigs. He definitely didn't! And when you compare Roy's NCAA tournament results at Kansas with Bill's results at Kansas, he definitely doesn't have a superior record. Similar, yes, superior, no, Roy never got a championship and Bill has. And Bill definitely has a more superior season record at KU than Roy (.827 average wins to Roy's .805 at KU and .776 at UNC).

Yeah, because performing manual labor on a farm is something to aspire to. lol

Even setting foot on a farm indicates failure in life.

That's about as dumb of a statement as I've heard in a long time. It shows your ignorance concerning a farm as well as manual labor. Farm life today is a long cry from what it used to be. It has become quite a high tech business. This includes agriculture farming as well as dairy and livestock farming. Without the smarts needed to understand this and the ability to adapt to it, you won't make it as a farmer. And when I say, "you," I am including YOU. Without the farm industry, our nation would be in a sorry state. I defy anyone on this board to say otherwise.

Besides, there is nothing wrong with manual labor. Those involved in manual labor are the backbone of our nation. Without manual labor you don't have food to eat, milk to drink, a house to live in, a place to work no matter what your job is. You don't have appliances in your home to cook with, clean with, you don't even have plumbing for water, gas or electricity. You don't have a car, or gas to run it it or oil for the engine. You don't have anyone to repair any of this stuff. You don't have highways to drive on or airplanes to fly in, not even trains or buses for transportation. You don't have a computer to write your drivel on, nor a smartphone, nor even a phone. In fact you don't even have a pencil or pen to write with or paper to write on. Without manual labor you end back up in the cave you were born in and are forced to do a whole lot of manual labor just to survive. You end up making your own weapons from trees and probably in your case swinging from the branches of those trees and the vines hanging in them.

The fact is you don't even have sporting events as we do today because there would be no one to make the equipment needed for the sporting events and not even players to participate in the team activity as that would involve a lot of manual labor.

You need to quit thinking so highly of yourself as you are nothing without the help and labor of others. Quit thinking that you are so infallible in your thinking as only popes and dopes are allowed to believe that.

If I sound upset, it is because I am. Sorry if I offended anyone, but if I did, you needed to be.

Yes 52 ...my grandfather owned a diary. Bailed hay on his 120 acre farm until 14 yrs of age. But I wanted out of flyover country. Wanted to see a bit of the world. Joined the military and afterwards worked as a defense contractor for the Navy.

Repaired radar and sonar systems mostly on nuclear submarines for about 27 yrs. So sure I can milk a cow ...can you repair a submarines radar or sonar. My efforts kept the US Navy ships in readiness to deter enemy threats. That kinda trumps milking a cow or growing crops. But actually I respect farmers. I just like spinning you up and that's easy to do..

As far as Roy is concerned I think he did more with less talent at KU . The 91 and 93 F4 teams weren't near as talented as most of Bill's teams but accomplished more. I say both coaches are about equal.

Everyone has their role in society to make it function. Higher pay or greater skill doesn't make one person of greater worth than another. Just like JW's role on this board is to get a rise out of people and enjoy watching people scramble to refute him. I suspect that he is not that firmly convicted of many of the things he posts on here. (I do not personally object to the discussion - that is what we're on here for)


As far as Bill Self being a top notch coach, a great many coaches, sports writers, and players past and present think that he is. I will trust the opinions of people who know far more about basketball than I do.

1952, Thanks for explaining my post. Great job. I threw that out there for our fellow posters to think about.

Some are better thinkers than others! LOL!

Another fact is that when you become head coach at either KU or UNC, many potential recruits already have both schools on their lists. Therefore success can become much easier and quicker. Roy never had to overcome what Bill did.

How smart was Bill when he moved from Ill to KU. Very smart, he already knew this.

Why are you able to milk a cow? Because you were taught how. Why are you able to repair radar and sonar systems? Because you were trained how. Can I repair radar and sonar systems? No. Why? Because I was never trained how. Could I learn? I have no doubt. There's not much of anything I can't do if I apply myself and learn how to do it. I'm sure that's true of most of us. I think you're statement about your work in the military and defense contracting trumping milking a cow or raising crops is a bit out of line or did those military and defense contract personnel not ever eat? I assume they surely did and were extremely glad they could. Who do you think made that possible? Anytime any one person or group of persons think that they are better than others they've really gotten their thinking out of whack. We all really do depend upon each other, and that includes all of us depending on the farmers. So I think you probably spoke before you thought.

The thing about learning how to milk a cow is that doing so doesn't make you a farmer, not even remotely close. In fact, the farms that I'm aware of in western Kansas don't even have milk cows, chickens or pigs unless they specialize in those areas. Most of the farms in crop raising work 2,000 - 6,000 acres or more. I'm talking about individual farmers and not incorporative farm businesses. They work with tractors and combines that cost $100,000 - 300,000 and that's not including the implements. It takes a lot of know how to keep all of that running smoothly and staying above water economically.

I appreciate you service to our country and your later support of it through defense contracting. But we wouldn't be the nation we are today without all of the other kinds of businesses and manufacturing which includes a whole lot of manual labor. I suspect that this board is full of people who are or have been involved in manual labor. I salute each and every one. They have my respect and gratitude.

I have no problem with you being on this board as I've learned to understand you some better. I know that you like to try and get under someone's skin and upset them. But also have learned that your bark is a lot worse than your bite and you're not nearly as disagreeable as you sometimes sound. I will have to admit, though, that I was a bit disappointed in your lining up with JW.

No...you old folk have no concept of modern military technology. It's not like operating are programed irrigation system. And lol. 100000 to 300000 dollar farm equipment. Heck one of the sonar systems I was responsible for cost the neighborhood of 4 million dollars.

I did over 500 job evolutions with such equipment over 25 yrs plus numerous other duties that kept flyover country farmers protected from the Communist threat and threats from other countries. Don't even try comparing the two jobs. I don't disrespect your profession but don't dare under estimate what I did...got it. And please expand your narrow minded views of things. I don't like Jimbo West but I laugh at his posts because he can easily spin local yokels like yourself up and you take the bait every time. Quit doing that.

Don't believe I was disrespecting what you did one iota. But the bottom line of what I was saying is, if you and your people don't eat, you don't produce, either as a military or a defense contractor. Our dependency upon each other today is so inner woven that none can do without the others.

I once swore off ever responding to JW once. But he's so much like an disgusting,evil rattlesnake slithering his way throughout this board that you just have to want to try and cut off his poisonous head once in a while. smile

Puhlease...we started out as a fighting military nation..we got our crops from the injuns. Without the protection of our early military the American farmer never would have got going. Again military trumps farmer. Heck our military could have bought crops from our ally countries.

In fact I work a part time job just for something to do online shopping at a grocery store. Most of the produce they sell especially in season stuff comes from other countries. Explain that if you can....still respect the farming profession but it's is not important as our military. And Roy still is Bill's equal. ..boom.

I understand technology as it has changed drastically in the oil and gas industry. Instead of drilling and completing 3000' vertical holes I am now drilling down 10,000' , turning that steel and drilling a horizontal hole for 2 miles. Technology has changed the entire world. It is needed everywhere and I will not put the importance of one over the other, but...............you would still be drilling wheat in western Ok. with mules and sailing those ships if it were not for oil and gas. LOL! I don't feel any more important than anybody else, because I, nor my industry is.

Without the smarts needed to understand this and the ability to adapt to it, you won't make it as a farmer. And when I say, "you," I am including YOU. Without the farm industry, our nation would be in a sorry state. I defy anyone on this board to say otherwise.


You are seriously trying to defend farming as a respectable occupation? Only losers farm. Then they make up this fantasy land where "farmers feed the world" or some crap so they can justify their pathetic existence.

Quote:
Besides, there is nothing wrong with manual labor.


Right I guess, if your intellectual abilities are so lacking that you have to resort to using your hands.

Quote:
Those involved in manual labor are the backbone of our nation.


Closely following the deification of Bill Self, we now are seeing the deification of the day laborer.

Quote:
Without manual labor you don't have food to eat, milk to drink, a house to live in, a place to work no matter what your job is.


Really? Seems like I do.

Quote:
You don't have appliances in your home to cook with, clean with, you don't even have plumbing for water, gas or electricity.


My Centurion Card gets me these things just fine.

Quote:
You don't have a car, or gas to run it it or oil for the engine. You don't have anyone to repair any of this stuff. You don't have highways to drive on or airplanes to fly in, not even trains or buses for transportation. You don't have a computer to write your drivel on, nor a smartphone, nor even a phone. In fact you don't even have a pencil or pen to write with or paper to write on. Without manual labor you end back up in the cave you were born in and are forced to do a whole lot of manual labor just to survive.


Again, fantasy land.

Quote:
You end up making your own weapons from trees and probably in your case swinging from the branches of those trees and the vines hanging in them.


I didn't realize we were living in the jungle now. Unlike you, I live in a real city with real infrastructure.

Quote:
The fact is you don't even have sporting events as we do today because there would be no one to make the equipment needed for the sporting events and not even players to participate in the team activity as that would involve a lot of manual labor.


We have sporting events today PRECISELY because we don't need to conduct manual labor anymore.

You need to quit thinking so highly of yourself as you are nothing without the help and labor of others.

Another means of measuring NCAA Tournament results for coaches.

With the exception of two, the following coaches have won at least one NCAA Basketball Championship during the past 14 years. Two of the coaches either retired or moved to the NBA during this time so their record was extended backwards to include their last 14 years. One coach has only been at it for five years. Izzo and Boeheim were included as they’ve been considered great coaches and both have won one championship previously, their only championships. The term, “Years” means the years covered. “Ng,” meaning No go, are the years they didn’t make it to the tournament. With the exception of Cal, all of the coaches were at the same school during the time considered. Points were awarded for each level reached in the tourney – 64= 1, 32= 2, 16= 3, E8= 4, F4= 5, F2= 6 and Champ= 7 to determine how the coaches stack up against each other.

Coach - Years -Champ -F 2 - F 4–E 8 -16 - 32 - 64 –Ng -Points
Roy........... 14 .....3........1......1.....3....3.....2.....0 ....1 ..... 56
Self........... 14 .....1........1......0.....5....2.....3.....2 ....0 ..... 47
Cal............ 14 .....1........1......2.....4....1.....2.....0 ... 2 ..... 46
Coach K.... 14 .....2........0......1.....1....5.....2.....3 ... 0 ..... 45
Izzo........... 14......0........1......3.....1....3.....3.....3 ... 0 ..... 43
Pitino ........ 14 .... 1 ...... 0 .... 2 ... 3 .. 1 ... 3 ... 2 ... 2 ..... 40
Donovan ... 14 .....2 ...... 0 .... 1 ... 3 ...0 ... 2 ... 3 ... 3 ..... 38
Calhoun .... 14 .... 3 ...... 0 .... 1 ... 2 .. 1 ... 2 ... 2 ... 3 ..... 37
Wright ....... 14 .... 1 ...... 0 .... 1 ... 1 .. 2 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ..... 33
Boeheim ... 14 .... 0 ...... 0 .... 2 .... 1 .. 3 ... 2 ... 2 ... 4 ..... 29
Ollie ........... 5 .....1 ...... 0 .... 0 .... 0 .. 0 ... 1 ... 0 ... 3 ....... 6
(Roy at KU.14..... 0 ...... 2 .... 2 .... 1 .. 4 ... 5.... 0 ... 0 ..... 48)

I considered giving penalty points for missing the tourney. Giving one point or two points in penalties for each year missed didn’t make a lot of difference. A one point penalty dropped Cal one position and two points dropped him two positions. The rest stayed in the same order. Note that all the coaches have piled up a large number in the Ng, 64 and 32 columns. Roy, Self, Cal and Coach K have the least number with totals of 3, 4 or 5.

This is a laughably stupid scale. You weighted it to make THE GREAT DEITY BILL SELF look good. A National Championship only gets 7 points while an Elite Eight gets 4? Are you kidding? 3 wins vs. 6 wins. I mean, if you are going to do this, you need to weight later rounds progressively higher. But even if you do it the dumbass way like you did, you have to weight wins somewhat evenly. You are weighting the early rounds heavier. Use your brain.

This is just all around dumb farm brain garbage.

The biggest measurement on Tourney coaching is Final 4's and titles if we are comparing apples to apples. Roy has elevated himself in this discussion over the last 10 years. Coach K is still the ultimate standard of who everyone is chasing.

Give Self 29 years at a blueblood, I would hope he has more Final 4's and titles than most on this list. I will always say that Roy inherited a gold mine with the 05' class and in 09" that team wasn't going to be defeated. His last two teams have been really good coaching jobs.

I always get the impression we as KU fans are trying so hard to devalue what Roy is doing, and not looking at the fact that he has had almost 30 years of experience at two of the most prestigious places to coach. We are on the struggle bus when it comes to clearing that Elite 8 hurdle, but its a hurdle we are facing on a constant.

Well if Bill can snag 2 more titles and 4 more F4s in the next 14 years he will be Roy's equal in tournament success. I am hoping for a bit more.

Thanks for your comments. I appreciate that you were able to share your thoughts without having to put anyone down. Looks like you've done a lot of posting since joining this board.

There is no perfect means of measuring tournament success. I'm not sure that I agree with you that final fours and titles are the biggest measurement, except that when a team does reach those heights, they do rack up a lot of points in the means of measurement that I set up. Roy has garnered 13 points in just the past two years! They add a lot of points, as they should.

In his last 14 years Calhoun did get three titles but also missed the tournament three times. That has to take off some of the luster of him as a coach. Consistency should count for something. The same is true of Donovan with two titles and three no shows. Coach K has two titles but has had a difficult time getting past the sweet 16, only doing so four times in the past 14 years. But each of us have the privilege to ascertain what we consider important. I do value consistency along with titles and going deep into the tourney. I think my system awards all of these.

I know many like to knock Self for stumbling in the Elite 8 five times at KU but we need to keep in mind that out of 64 (68) coaches that make the tournament each year only eight get to the elite eight. Not a shabby accomplishment, but certainly less than what we are desiring. There were also 279 coaches who didn't even get to a play-in spot in the tourney. I do think that Bill's days are coming for more Final Fours and Titles.

I guess I don't sense that a lot of fans are wanting to put Roy down for his accomplishments, but there are some. The chart I developed certainly puts him at the top as a NCAA Tourney coach. I've always liked Roy, still do, but I'm glad we have Bill. We've been extremely fortunate the past 29 years to have these two as our coaches and I would add Larry, in spite of his mistake, to that making 34 years for us without a losing season. In fact, I appreciate Ted Owens. Yes, he had some real downer years, but there were also some really good years. He didn't always do a good rebuilding job every season whereas Roy and Bill have, at least at KU.

Nobody is comparing Self to that mook Calhoun . I only compare Self to Roy and K as far as tournament success is concerned. You want to compare him to the other hundreds of coaches that don't coach a blueblood program...UCONN is not one of those btw.

Bill has the talent...tradition..and the greatest fanbase in college hoops at a true top 4 blueblood school. Bottom line his NCAA TOURNAMENT success should have been better in his first 14 seasons. Fuc.k comparing him to Zona..Zags ..etc. And screw that point system crap for tournament success. Final 4s and titles talk...everything else walks.

Pretty much every means is better than yours.

You only say that because if you actually used them as a measurement then you would have to face the reality that THE GREAT DEITY BILL SELF is not actually that great.

except that when a team does reach those heights, they do rack up a lot of points in the means of measurement that I set up.


WAHOO!!! You can also get the same number of "points" in your system as WINNING A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP by simply MAKING THE TOURNAMENT 7 years in a row. On what planet are those two feats remotely equivalent?

Quote:
Roy has garnered 13 points in just the past two years! They add a lot of points, as they should.


Dumb.

My friend Phogy, we're not all that far off in our opinions, but we do have our disagreements. For the history of basketball there's only three truly blueblood schools, UK, KU and UNC. Because of Coach K, many now include Duke in that conversation. Had he not shown up Duke wouldn't be in the conversation. UCLA had a great run with Wooden, but not great consistency either direction from him. The rest are either Johnny come late, fading, never could quite get over the hump or just could never get going. I guess I could add to that those who have flashes of success. As I said in my post, each person can have their own criteria for measurement of success. You're welcomed to your own and I'm happy with mine. Here's to a great season next year.

Indiana has been a blueblood, but they are fading. Missed half of the tourney's the past 14 years and only reached the Sweet 16 three times when they have been in it.

Fading or not, they ARE a blue blood. 3rd most valuable program in the country during 2017 analysis. 7th in NCAA both in tourney apps with 39 total and in tourney victories. 5 NCAA championships since 1940 tied for fourth in history (Duke). The records could go on forever. All recruits are staying committed to the new coach from UCLA post-Crean. Don't sell them short.

Is Archie Miller really going to do anything to change that? I know he could win at Dayton, and he's got Sean Miller as a brother...what is he going to do to improve them?

He kept the 3 Crean guys committed, but they have a pretty weak class, IMO.

1952- KU & Indiana are ranked similar for 2017 247 composite rankings. Don't think that's weak

I'm talking about what Indiana has done the past 14 years and that is considerably less than what they've done in years past. I don't have a clue as to what they might do this next year. If they have a great year, that is fine, but to be a true blueblood they will have to not only have a great year next year, they will have to continue to consistently do so. That's why UK, KU and UNC are truly bluebloods, they have been basically consistently good across many years. That's why they are a ways out ahead of the rest of the pack. I have to admit that I don't pay much attention to Indiana because I really don't have much interest in them, particularly the past 14 years or so. Now while Knight was there he at least kept things quite interesting. It has been 35 years since they've won a national championship.

I think in the realm of historical value, Indiana and UCLA are blueblood types. UCONN is not, and won't be. My issue with those two schools are they have been relative average since each have hired many coaches since Knight and Wooden have been gone. Its the same criteria that will hang over Duke's head in a few years. Coach is the program, end point. If we are going to consider Arizona or UCONN, Michigan St then is a no brainer every bit a blueblood now.

There’s been some talk about who are the basketball bluebloods? That is a question that no single answer will satisfy everyone. I’ve compiled some stats that could give some insight in trying to answer that question. There are 20 schools being considered. There are some qualifications to be on the list. (1) No one was considered who did not have a history of at least 75 years. (2) A school had to either be in the top 20 total wins or (3) have multiple NCAA Tourney championships. Any school that can’t meet that criteria most certainly can’t be considered a blueblood. The criteria used in the stats are somewhat of a balance between season results and NCAA tourney results. The schools are listed in the order of total wins. I don’t consider every school listed as a blueblood. In fact I don’t consider most of them as being such. But it is a means of comparison. If there are any minor mistakes, they wouldn’t change to overall results.

School . . First . Total . . Win . . Conf. . Tourney. Tourney. Tourney. Tourney

After compiling the above stats, I gave a value of 1 - 20 in each column according to where each school was rated, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. The total of the ratings for each school in each column were then added and divided by seven to find the average for each school. The following stats show where each school ended up. The stats used are objective. There are also subjective considerations that one might use. Some might want to consider two or three levels of bluebood schools. I have no doubt that the first three schools listed are bluebloods. The next two very well could be. Beyond that it becomes less and less probable, thus the possibility of two or three levels.

School . . . Total . . Average
. . . . . . . . Compos. . Score
UK. . . . . . . . 9 . . . . . 1.29
UNC . . . . . .17. . . . . 2.43
KU . . . . . . . 25. . . . . 3.57
UCLA. . . . . 29. . . . . 4.14
Duke. . . . . .36. . . . . 5.14
Louisville. . .55. . . . . 7.86
Syracuse. . .59. . . . . 8.43
UConn. . . . .73. . . . 10.43
Indiana. . . . .77. . . . 11.00
Arizona . . . .78. . . . 11.14
Notre D . . . .88. . . . 12.57
Villinova .. . .90. . . . 12.86
Temple. . . . .92. . . . 13.14
Cincinnati. . .92. . . . 13.14
Michigan St. 94. . . . 13.43
Illinois . . . . .98. . . . 14.00
St. Johns. . . 99. . . . 14.14
Utah . . . . . .99 . . . . 14.14
BYU. . . . . .103. . . . 14.71
Florida . . . .106. . . . 15.14

There are some subjective aspects that might be considered for being a blueblood, such as tradition. I was surprised that UCLA ended up above Duke. However, keep in mind that UCLA had a decade of overwhelmingly great success. But that wasn’t the case before that decade nor after it. For that reason I would be more apt to consider Duke being a bluebood than I would UCLA. UConn had some flashes of success in winning four NCAA tourneys, but not a lot of consistency. In spite of winning two tourneys in a row Florida ended up at the bottom of the pile. Michigan State has had some really good seasons under Izzo, but before that not so good.

I know some will find great fault with what I’ve done, but that’s okay. They can gnash their teeth all they want, I enjoyed doing it and some of what I discovered surprised me.

At least I don't yammer on about useless point systems and warm and fuzzy statistics. That no matter what doesnt change the fact that KU underachieves in the tournament. Roi in 14 yrs at UNC has matched KU's history of 3 whomping NCAA Tournament titles. Keep crunching them numbers though. Lol.

Kansas just has unexplanable bad luck in the tourney. Roy had some great teams here, maybe some of the best ever to play here,and we couldn't get it done. Self has had some elite talent, and won a title. We have had just as talented teams flame out.

Success is determined off of Final 4's. That is the ultimate measuring stick. Putting aside Calipari's issues at UMass and Memphis, he had taken 3 different schools to the Final 4. Roy has taken two, and Pitino has taken 3. Self has taken one.

Again, not bagging on Self. He is a great coach. Don't want another guy standing on our sideline. However, he is not perfect and has not done anything that others haven't done. 13 in a row is a huge accomplishment, but its also a story of how Big 12 basketball doesn't have the talent level that others do. We have maybe the best conference for coaches, but fall short on extreme talent from 1-10 in teams. Baylor and us carry the talent core.

We are blessed to have Self here, and to have this program. I think SElf will break thru and win and make many Final 4's yet. He needs to figure out some things as well. Our teams can't enter Elite 8 games and continue to always be tight and afraid to win. Bluebloods are easy to figure out. Its based on all time winning and continued success. Thats leaves a few fine programs, and thats it.

He definitely underwhelms compared to his seeding. Hopefully he gets it figured out in the tourney, and we start going to the final four or further more than once every 5-7 years.

I remember in the 90s Carolina went 5 times and we went twice. Man I was envious of the Turdheels back then. Guess I still am. Can beat them str8 up but they just know how to get to the F4 better.

Very few other HOF type coaches out there to bring in as his replacement. Just this grateful fan's opine.

At least he didn't just win one meaningful game and get his salary immediately doubled.

Time to cause a little more gnashing of teeth and empty headed screaming by those that enjoy doing so. I suspect that an equal number, or more, enjoy looking at my stats. This post is for them. There’s no doubt that the best NCCA basketball team does not always win the championship. Here’s some more stats that give us a picture of the entire NCAA Tourney history. The facts are objective. The interpretations anyone makes from them is at least somewhat subjective.

The following stats are divided into four sections of 20 years for the first 60 tourneys and 19 for the last set making 79 years total of the championship teams and their win/loss records. They are then divided to show teams with zero losses, 1-3 losses, 4-6 losses, 7-9 losses and double digit losses. The information to the right shows the total and average of wins/losses and total and average games played. You can see that the average games played have moved from 30 per year to 39. Any discrepancies are due to rounding off.

1939 - 1958 Championship:
Teams with:. . 0 losses — 2 . .Total Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 1-3 losses – 11 . . . . . . 547 - 59 = 606 games
Teams with: 4-6 losses — 6 . .Average Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 7-9 losses — 1 . . . . . .27 - 3 = 30 games averaged
Teams with: DD losses— 0

1959 - 1978 Championship:
Teams with:. . 0 losses — 5 . .Total Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 1-3 losses – 13 . . . . . . 571 - 35 = 606 games
Teams with: 4-6 losses — 1 . .Average Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 7-9 losses — 1 . . . . . .29 - 2 = 31 games averaged
Teams with: DD losses — 0

1979 - 1998 Championship:
Teams with:. . 0 losses — 0 . .Total Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 1-3 losses — 7 . . . . . . 611 - 110 = 721 games
Teams with: 4-6 losses — 5 . .Average Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 7-9 losses — 5 . . . . . . 31 - 6 = 37 games averaged
Teams with: DD losses — 3

1999 - 2017 Championship:
Teams with:. . 0 losses — 0 . .Total Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 1-3 losses — 3 . . . . . . 643 - 99 = 742 games
Teams with: 4-6 losses – 12 . .Average Wins/Losses of Champs:
Teams with: 7-9 losses — 4 . . . . . . 34 - 5 = 39 games averaged
Teams with: DD losses — 0

From these stats we can probably assume that teams with zero losses were the best teams for that year. So were the teams with 1-3 losses, but not quite as certain. Teams with double digit losses were most likely not the best team of that year and the others with 4-9 losses are iffy in some cases. Just two examples show the likelihood that the best do not always win. In 2014 UConn (32-8) beat UK (38-1) in the championship game and in 1991 Duke (32-7) beat UNLV (34-1) in the simi-final game. In all likelihood the better teams did not win in those two years. In fact this is most likely true several times during the 79 years. Teams that had 0-3 losses won the championship 41 times and teams that had 4-11 losses won 38 times. There’s no way that teams with double digit losses were the best teams that year, but they won the necessary games through the tournament and became the champs. That’s not to say that the tournament isn’t exciting, it truly is, and part of the excitement is with such teams becoming the champs. So winning the tournament doesn’t necessarily mean the best team won. I don’t think anyone would argue against that. It’s really a crap shoot at times! At other times it is probably quite accurate.

Note the following stat for the tourney champs:

Total losses . . Number of times the champ
. . . . 0 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .7
. .1 - 3 . . . . . . . . . . . . . .34
. .4 - 6 . . . . . . . . . . . . . .24
. .7 - 9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . .11
. .D. D. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .3

For those wondering who the teams were and don’t want to take the time to look it up, I’ve listed the champs and their records for each season:

1939 Ore. . . .29 - 5 . . . 1940 Ind. . . . 20 - 3 . . . 1941 Wisc. . 20 - 3

No problem. And did you really have to type all that out only to prove that the teams with superior win seasons won more championships. In other words simple logic. Not too sure what you were going for with that lengthy diatribe.

Just having a little fun to begin with. Also, I like to see things in black and white. Sometimes we learn something when all the stats are laid out before us. It verified what I already knew and I saw some things that I didn't know before. I was a bit surprised that almost half of the champs lost 4 or more games during the season and almost 20% lost 6 or more games. It was also interesting to note that during the first 38 seasons there were 7 seasons in which the champ lost zero games. The past 41 seasons there have been zero who have had a non-losing season.

You are what is considered in sports fan terms as a "highsider". In other words you only support a winner and when the winner doesn't achieve to your standards to drop them like a hot potato i.e. KU football.

Your words are English but the definition is so far off as to not be taken seriously. Quit beating that dead horse. I believe I knew Beaty should've been an asst coach first for more experience. I support KU sports good or bad. Our football is bad.

Records for the past 30 years of the top four all time winningness teams. First the wins and win % is shown for each of the last three decades as well as the NCCA Tourney Titles. Then those numbers for the last combined two decades and then the last combined three decades. The top team in each category is underlined. I didn’t consider any other teams as I seriously doubt that any had the same success or consistency of these four. This would also indicate that these are the bluebloods of the past 30 years as well as of all time.

Team . . . . . . . . . . . KU . . Duke . .UNC. . .UK
2007-2017 wins. . . 311 . . 296 . . . 292 . . .289
2007-2017 win% - -.845 - - .811 - - .804 - - .785
2007-2017 TT . . . . .1 . . . . 2 . . . . . 2 . . . . .1

1997-2007 wins. . . 266 . . 302 . . . 239 . . . 263
1997-2007 win% - -.787 - - .846 - - .703 - - .760
1997-2007 TT . . . . .0 . . . . 1 . . . . . 1 . . . . .1

1987-1997 wins. . . 240 . . 230 . . . 268 . . . 247
1987-1997 win% - -.782 - - .742 - - -.772 - - .769
1987-1997 TT . . . . .1 . . . . 2 . . . . . 1 . . . . .1

1997-2017 wins. . .577 . . 598 . . . 531 . . . 552
1997-2017 win% - .817 - - .831 - - -.757 - - .773
1997-2017 TT . . . . .1 . . . . 3 . . . . . 2 . . . . .2

1987-2017 wins. . . 817 . . 828 . . . 799 . . . 799
1987-2017 win% - -.807 - -.804 - - -.761 - - .772
1987-2017 TT . . . . .2 . . . . 5 . . . . . 4 . . . . .3

The next set of stats show how each team ranked in wins and win % during each of the three decades and the two combined decades. It shows that KU and Duke are clearly the most consistent of the four and are fairly even with KU slightly ahead. UNC and UK are also closely clumped together. A 4.0 would equal all number ones in ranking, 3.0 an exact average of number two, 2.0 an exact average of three and 1.00 all number fours in ranking in the following stats.

Ranked . 1st . . 2nd . . 3rd . . 4th . Average Ranking
KU . . . . .4. . . .5. . . . 1. . . .0. . . . . . . .3.3
Duke . . . 5. . . .3. . . . 0. . . .2. . . . . . . .3.1
UNC. . . .1. . . .1. . . . 3 . . . 5. . . . . . . .1.7
UK . . . . .0 . . . 1. . . . 7 . . . 2 . . . . . . . 1.4

The following stats show how each team ranked in tournament titles during each of the three decades and the two combined decades. The Combined Average averages the season rankings and the tournament titles. This shows Duke and UNC doing the best with tournament titles with UK and KU following. The Combined Average shows Duke ahead followed by KU, UNC and UK. The past 3 decades these four schools only lack one title from having exactly one half of the 30 tourney titles.At least one of these four have been in the Final Four 27 times, leaving only three times that at least one of these teams weren't in the Final Four. That's dominance!

Ranked . 1st ..2nd . . 3rd . . 4th . Ave. Rank. . Comb. Ave.
Duke. . . .5 . .0 . . . 0. . . . 0 . . . . 4.0 . . . . . . . . 3.4
KU . . . . .0 . .1 . . . 1. . . . 3 . . . . 1.6 . . . . . . . . 2.7
UNC. . . .2 . .3 . . . 0. . . . 0 . . . . 3.4 . . . . . . . . 2.3
UK . . . . .1 . .2 . . . 2. . . . 0 . . . . 2.8 . . . . . . . . 2.2

All time games won and winning percentage of the top four teams:

UK . . 2,237 and .765
KU . . 2,217 and .725
UNC. 2,206 and .739
Duke. 2,115 and .708

No other teams have more than 1,886 wins or over a .692 average. Another reason to consider these four the blueboods.

An interesting note. If Naismith had believed in coaching and had achieved a .696 winning percentage instead of his .478, KU would be tied with UK in total wins and we’d have a .732 winning percentage.

Pretty sure you didn't have to type all of that to prove those 4 teams are true bluebloods. Bill ain't worried about it...he is partying it up at Quintons as we post.

No matter how any one person defines KU as a program, its under achieved in March. Thats what we do, and have done. Self is trying a different approach for the next two seasons. I don't like it, but its an aggressive approach and I do like when people want something and go after it. Most won't say they don't like this approach, but we are also tired of being underachievers in March.
Our history does nothing to explain how great we have been and are in the regular season. It screams loud in bold that we don't compare to others in March. its just not Self, its been everyone since Phog.

Wtf are you talking about 10 of our Final 4s have been since Phog. But you are right by our seeding and results KU has underachieved in the Tournament. Especially Bill..hopefully that's going to change.

And to be honest I don't like Bill using 3 schollies actually 4 on transfer players. Especially since 2 of them can't even play next season. Seems like an Iowee St. tactic.

Unless I missed something -- Three of them can't play next season: KJ & Dedric Lawson and Moore. I doubt that Moore gets approved for the hardship waiver.

Cunliffe will be out until semester.

I get what Self is doing by getting transfers with high upside. What I don't like about it is the fact that they sit for a whole year. Whose to say that the Lawsons won't turn pro after sitting out for a year and practicing under Self? Can anyone guarantee that won't happen?

This thread is ok for defending Self against those who want him gone. Frankly thats just silly to begin with. However in proving how great Self is, your showing how sub par he is in March given his seedings and actual performance numbers in that time frame.

KU has a spell on it in March. We seem to win every 20 years or so. I have watched us win two titles so far in my lifetime and feel fortunate for that. Roy's tenure here by far had more woes in it than Bills has had so far. I watched Roy's teams, who had superior talent compared to most any team in college ball, flame out in worse fashion. Pierce/Lafrentz era was awesome to watch. Those team were maybe some of the best ever in my opinion here to never even sniff a Final 4. Might even be on best ever level no matter what judging system you use. So Bill's lack of tourney success is glaring, but in some ways not near as glaring as what Roy had here to work with for so many years.

The jury is out on Self's decisions and it will slowly trickle in during the next 1, 2 and 3 years. For next year he must be really satisfied with what he already has, with or without Svi, most likely with.

For year 2 he must be highly confident that the 3 sit outs will really come through and fit in with those returning.

By year 3 a lot of unknowns can pop up, good or bad.

So all we can do is wait and see. Achieving 1 - 3 tourney titles, extending the streak to 14, 15 or 16 and perhaps even a 40-0 season tossed in during the next 3 years would make him seem like a genius. I'm not predicting any of this, but am hoping for at least some of it. Time will tell. I am glad that he is our coach.

Here in the 21st century, next years roster is always a question mark. OAD's. Voluntary transfers. Forced out transfers. Graduate transfers. Next years roster is always a question mark. That's the way it rolls in the 21st century.

This ain't that dinosaur age of the 20th century when you knew what your roster was going to look like.

Only poosies expect to know in advance what next years roster should look like.

Good takes on next year(s). Is Self giving a middle finger to something or someone in this route of recruiting? Are there games being played that Self just isn't playing this year? I think there is a message being sent, just don't know that message yet.

I really feel it has alot to do with shoe companies meddling in recruiting. I guess if we had a decent football team that might change as well.

The point is why do you hold Beaty to a different standard then Self? I don't remember Self inheriting the mess that Beaty did.

Football is why we are stuck with Addidas. No other shoe companies are willing to give us a deal. If you have noticed Nike and Jordan Brand players usually don't go here. They go to UK, UNC, Duke, and Arizona. Don't quote me, but I think we are one of 12 schools that are still with Addidas? We are one of a few that are power 5.

I’ve read several on this board say that it’s the final fours and championships that really matter, then in the same breath say how bad KU does in the NCAA tourney. If that’s the measure, then KU hasn’t done all that bad, particularly when considering the final fours it’s gone to. Yes, not as well as we’d like and these aren’t championships, but looking at the last 30 years we’re 4th on the final four list and for all time 5th. Grouse all you want, KU doesn’t have a bad record in the NCAA tourney. No, we’re not at the top, but not far behind and ahead of most. The stats given show the top 10 schools for the past 30 years in the final four as well as for all time. Hopefully during the next 10 years we will move up on these lists.

This is entirely wrong. Of course Nike would give the football team a deal - we did before. The issue was that Adidas would also give all the non-revenue sports a deal too. The Adidas deal was one of the best things Perkins did. Don't rewrite history based on nonsense.

Also, you are really being pretty racist thinking that all recruits care about are superficial shoe brands. Think about it.

Typical nonsensical conflation of issues to create a strawman. Show the stats on THE GREAT DEITY BILL SELF and not KU as a whole. You won't though, because it would demonstrate that THE GREAT DEITY BILL SELF is, in fact, less than divine.

Yep. Adidas had basically everything to do with the non-revenue sports.

Too lazy to look it up, but I would tend to think MSU, UK, UNC, Duke, UCLA, Butler, UF, Ohio State, UConn, Lou, and maybe even a few others match or beat us if we trim this down to final fours in just Self's time at KU.

Self and KU together has failed in getting the number of NCs that they should have gotten. Especially considering the talent,tradition,training facilities, and excellent in coaching. 3 don't cut it...5 is the minimum for excellence. Kentucky.,UCLA,UNC,Duke,and Indina has done this. KU hasn't. .3-6 in the Championship game is dismal.

Fly over locals remain content with the conference streak and E8 appearances. That doesn't cut it imo. We need to get some frigging titles. No more excuses. And please hicks don't state at least we get the conference titles and E8 appearances a lot of lesser teams do not. KU is not a lesser team and shouldn't be compared to such. Bill needs to improve in March.

List of final four teams during past 14 years, plus their appearances in an elite 8 and the totals of the two:

School . . . . . . . . FF . . . E8 . . . T
UNC . . . . . . . . . .5. . . . .3 . . . . 8
UConn. . . . . . . . .4. . . . .1 . . . . 5

With 1 appear. . 15

KU has played well enough in the Tourney to be within one win of the final four seven times. Only UNC exceeds that by one. UK and Florida ties KU. This means that in one half of their NCAA tourney games KU was within one game of making the final four five times and made it twice. Only four teams came that close to the potential of reaching the final four in half their last 14 seasons.

The original post on this thread was about Bill Self. The resulting replies have strayed far from that. My most recent posts were about KU and not Self, including the one you responded to. Probably no school or coach can be considered great as they don’t go all that far in the tourney every year. It would seem that only one school and coach could be considered as really good during this period and that is UNC and Roy and keep in mind that they didn’t even make the tourney one year and UK didn’t make it twice. At least we can say that UNC is at the head of the pack win wise. A number of others could probably be considered as having been good during the past 14 years and, looking at the overall tourney record, that would include KU and Self. That statement certainly cannot be applied to any schools beyond the 14 listed and probably to only about half of them.

My Phogy friend, you have every right to state your opinions about Coach Self and KU basketball. At the same time, so do I. In so doing, it is obvious that you and I don’t always agree. I have no problem with that as long as each of us are willing let the other say his piece and not be mean spirited about it. I have no problem with ribbing each other and making wise-cracks. A few, one in particular, on this board seem to want to go beyond that.

I said all of that to preface what I’m going to say next. Each of us have different ways of measuring success. My constant goal is for KU to win every game every year including the NCAA Tourney. Yes, I know, that is totally unrealistic. That will never be achieved by a school or coach no matter how good they might be. In fact, I’m sure all of us understand that the best team each year doesn’t always win it all. That’s part of what makes basketball and other sports so interesting, even if it is upsetting at times, especially if it is our team that falls short of the goal. So my measure of success, for my team, is not winning it all, but to be consistently in the hunt. That we have done.

In my 65 seasons of following Hawk’s basketball they have had only 6 losing seasons. They have been in 43 of the NCAA Tourneys. They have 33 conference championships. The past 34 years have been better than the first 31 years, so much so that I think we’ve really become extremely spoiled. In the past 34 years we’ve not had even one losing season. We’ve been to 33 NCAA Tourneys (not allowed to defend our title by the NCAA that one year). We’ve won 23 conference championships, been 2nd seven times, 3rd twice, 5th once and 6th once. Sometimes it’s been almost like riding a bucking bronc in which the joy is in the ride more so than in winning out. KU has given me a great ride.

Probably no one had a greater desire to win than did Phog Allen. He pushed his guys to win. Winning was highly important to him, especially conference championships. But he realized that there’s more to life than winning basketball games. After winning the 1952 NCAA Title he wrote the following to his players:

It’s been great fun. But twenty-five or thirty years from now you boys will radiate and multiply the recollections of your struggles and your successes and your defeats and your dejections. All these will be rolled into a fine philosophy of life which will give you durable satisfactions down through the years (Quoted from Kansas University Basketball Legends by K. Johnson).

He was basically saying that the season topped off with a title was great fun, but in the years to come, what would give them the greater satisfaction would be in the dealing with the successes and defeats, the victories and losses and learning from all of that to become a better person and how to better deal with life.

I highly enjoy following KU sports, all of them to a degree, but especially basketball. I enjoy following the football team, granted, it gets frustrating at times and they certainly can’t be considered a great program, but I enjoy the ride and look forward to a better season every year in all of the sports. But this is not the most important thing in my life. Win or lose, the sun comes up every morning and I get to enjoy another great day of life. That’s what is truly important to me as well as enjoying the ride.

Forgive me for being so wordy, but you know me . . . just can’t help it.

You still couldn't do it without throwing in the irrelevant Elite 8 and TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES (!@?!?!) stats.

Yes, the Elite 8 is totally irrelevant, meaningless, of no consequent except for one little minor detail. In the NCAA Tourney, to date, no team has yet reached the final four, the championship game or achieved the championship without first getting to the elite 8. That is true even at the very beginning as they started with the "elite 8" for the tourney.

lolwat

Are you seriously so deluded into believing in Bill Self's infallibility that your mind has created this contortion?

The question was simple: how many Final Fours does every program have since Self took over?

Your warped mind clouded by cognitive dissonance won't let you just answer that question because you know where it leads. So, instead you have to create all this meaningless noise to try to cloud the issue.

"Oh yeah, well sure he doesn't have as many Final Fours, but look at all the lesser accomplishments! Surely they add up to something! Here, check out this point system that I made up to ensure that the lesser accomplishments actually add up to more than greater accomplishments! Woohoo! Let me stand in line for another iphone! Yippee!"

Although I don't care for the gayest they is I do agree somewhat on his view on what makes the locals content. But when you talk to college basketball fans on either coast most will state KU are choke artists in the tournament. Even to the point they have actually gotten mad at me because many years they pick KU to win it all and lose money on them. I mean cmon are we going to accept another 20 years between titles. That is really unacceptable.

Facts and titles will shut him up. Not insults...but yeah he is an idiotic troll. But I will reiterate that KU should have a few more titles. I mean do we give up on Bill getting another one if it doesn't happen in the next 3-5 years. Especially if he loses in the E8 game again several more times. I hope it happens but if not maybe it will be time for him to make the leap to the NBA.

You misunderstand me Phogy. Just because I think that Self is a great coach doesn't mean that I want to wait 20 years for another title. In Roy's 15 years at KU he had 14 years for a possibility of a title, he got none. Now being at UNC for 14 years he has achieved 3 titles, though it took him 22 years for his first. In his first 14 years at KU, Self has achieved 1 title. If he sticks around long enough, I believe in the next 14 years at KU he will attain at least 3 more titles, if not more.

Now let's compare apples to apples, current coaches with Self who took 5 years to get his first title at KU. We've already given Roy's who's done quite well at UNC.

Coach K has 5 titles, but he has 35 years at Duke to achieve this and it took 11 years for his first title.
Coach Cal has 1 title with 8 years at UK and 9 at Memphis. It took him 12 years to get his first title with these two schools, 3 years at UK for his first.
Coach Pitino has 2 titles in 24 years at UK and Louisville. His first title came in 7 years at UK and it has taken 12 years at Louisville to get number 2.
Coach Izzo has 1 title in 21 years at Michigan St. It took him 5 years (the same as Self) to get his first.
Coach Boeheim has 1 title in 40 years at Syracuse. It took him 26 years to get his first.
Jay Wright has 1 title in 15 years at Villanova. It took him 14 years for his first.
Let's add two more non-active NCAA coaches who have earned recent titles:
Coach Calhoun had 4 titles in 35 years at UConn. It took him 13 years for the first.
Coach Donovan had 2 titles in 18 years at Florida. It took him 11 years for the first.

Before we smack too hard on Self, let's give him an equal time element as these other coaches. As I've already indicated, I think he will compare quite well in time.

You responded to my previous post while I was typing this one. Facts have no bearing on the pipsqueak's thinking. Maybe he's proof that there's life from other planets.

I was going through the archives of the message board and came across this post by georgiahawk on 04/21/08. It gave me a pretty good chuckle and I thought that it might lighten things up a bit.

"Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven , God was missing for six days.

Eventually, Michael the Archangel found Him, resting, on the seventh day.

He inquired of God, 'Where have you been?'

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, 'Look Michael, look what I've made!'

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, 'What is it?'

'It's a planet,' replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm going to
call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance.'

'Balance?' inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. 'For example,
Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth,
while southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there
will be a hot spot. And over there I've placed a continent of white
people, while over here is a continent of black people.'

God continued, pointing to different countries.

'This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very
cold and covered in ice.'

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to an area of
rolling hills and prairie on a large land mass and said, 'What's that
beautiful garden spot there?'

'Ah,' said God. 'That's Kansas , the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful lakes, rivers, sunrises, sunsets, rolling hills,
open prairie, oceans of waving wheat, small water falls, monumental
rock formations, abundant wildlife, pure white snow in the winter,
white fluffy clouds, blue skies year-round, and a place where a
person can see millions of stars in the sky at night.'

God continued, 'I will call the people from Kansas Jayhawks, and they
will be modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be
found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hard
working and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the
world as diplomats and carriers of peace. They will be great athletes
and awesome champions in football and basketball.'

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, 'What
about balance, God? You said there would be balance!'

God replied wisely, 'Wait until you see the idiots I'm putting next
to them in Missouri.!"

Cognizance, apprehension or knowledge of the essence, sense or meaning of terms, vocables or words appear, look or seem completely, utterly or quite significant, valuable or important. I've made many posts on this board during the past 9+ years, but believe that this is the first time I've ever defined a word, though occasionally it becomes needful. Actually your statement is inaccurate, however, I accept it as a compliment.

If you want to argue between one another take it to the Rock Chalk Smack board or private messaging. If you want to talk about hoops then do so. I say we give Bill another 5 yrs to win a title. If he doesn't then like Hudler says "HE'S GOT TO GO". In other words time to change the mojo.

The issue was that Adidas would also give all the non-revenue sports a deal too.


Yep. Adidas had basically everything to do with the non-revenue sports.


So do we change directions in 2019 when our 26M/6 year extension ends?

Does Nike/UA improve on Adidas' offer?

Not sure what all this Nike and Adidas stuff has to do with Self and the team. But Self just pulled in another mediocre transfer from William and Mary. Tall whitey that looks like TJ Whatley of old. Wtf is going on 3 schollies on non playing transfers and now this doofus. Word has it Svi ain't coming back. This team will stink it up next season.

I’ve decided to add another chart which updates my last one. It shows the number of years considered for a coach and the years it took to win the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. NCAA titles. The Years are based on either when they began at their current coaching job or started at a school that NCAA Tourney’s are expected. A second category is where the years start in which a coach first took a team to the NCAA Tourney. For example, Coach K’s starts with his job at Duke. This first category would also include Roy, Donovan, Boeheim and Izzo. Self’s begins when he first took Tulsa to the NCAA Tourney. This second category would include Calhoun, Pitino, Cal and Wright. Calhoun and Donovan are non-active NCAA coaches but won recent titles. The first five are listed according to the number of titles won. The second five are listed in order of years considered.

Coach . . . . .Years. . .lst . .2nd . 3rd . .4th . . 5th
Coach K . . . . 37 . . . 11 . . 12 . . 21 . . 30 . . 35
Calhoun . . . . .32 . . . 19 . . 24 . .31
Roy . . . . . . . .29 . . . 17 . . 21 . .29
Pitino . . . . . . .27 . . . 10 . . 23
Donovan. . . . .19 . . . 10 . . 11
Boeheim . . . . 40 . . . .26
Izzo. . . . . . . . 23. . . . .5
Cal . . . . . . . . 22. . . . 17
Self. . . . . . . . 19 . . . .10
Wright . . . . . . 18 . . . .17

This shows that Izzo is the only coach that achieved his first title quicker than Self, but he hasn’t won one since, an 18 year drought. It also shows that Coach K and Donovan are the only coaches to reach their second title quicker than what is still possible for Self to do, with the exception of Wright who took 17 years to win his first and only.

This isn't making any sense. Could Self be getting ready to bolt to the NBA next season? Is there unrealistic goals here of winning a title? Whats really going on with this recruiting all of a sudden?

As Michhawk said quite a few replies earlier, we are in the 21st century. Things are different now, especially in recruiting. All we can do is hang on and see what happens. I believe, or at least am hoping, that Bill knows what he is doing. I'll believe the best until it is proven that it was the worst! Time will tell. I'm sure that Self knows a lot more about what's going on behind the scenes than any of us.

I won't disagree with any assessment this time giving Self his due. Talent trumps all naysayers, and coaching talent wins games. I just don't know where this rates in terms of talent. We all know that Self can coach, but he has often had tremendous talent to coach.

21st century is correct, but the one thing that translates from decade to decade is talent. You win with talent and heart. I think we just got some rent-a- players that will have very little heart and our results will remain similar to what they have been.

Coach got lazy about recruiting real talent. Popovich done after his Spurs are eliminated. Self to San Antonio. 7 transfer players with 3 not able to play next season. This is a bunch of weird as s bool hockey. Something is fishy and it smells...smells bad.

And to hell with Self being under too much pressure to win it all. At Kansas thats the goal every year. I don't like this at all. Mizzou is pulling better recruits in than Self is for next season. Unacceptable.

Minus being pals with the spurs gm, why exactly does HCBS deserve the coaching chair of the best franchise in the nba? Why would the spurs give their job to a college coach that ain't coached one minute in the league? Why?

It would not surprise me if HCBS decided to take his shot in the nba. But it ain't gonna be with the best franchise in the leaugue.

I don't know about stinking it up. We still have a lot of (projected) talent with Graham, Vick, Newman, Cunliffe, Udoka, Preston, Garrett...Lightfoot and Coleby too. If Udoka and Preston live close to the hype, we should be in the running for our 14th straight and another sweet 16 or elite 8 flop.

Don't know enough about TJ Jr, and the other 3 sitting out won't help this year (barring Moore getting some kind of waiver).

I was encouraged by Tait's article on the KU website. I do believe that Self knows what he is doing and that he is doing what he believes is best for our Hawks. He might go to the NBA some day, but if so, that's down the road aways. Not sure that he would enjoy coaching in the NBA as it is entirely a different type of job.Several college coaches have dipped their toe into the NBA and walked away.

I could be wrong, but I think he played one year at MS, laid out a year here, played last year, giving him two more years of eligibility. I haven't verified that so maybe someone else can.

Probation hammer coming down on KU next year. Thats why Self went the transfer route. He might bail for the NBA. Missouri has a better recruiting class so far. Jayhawks are finito.

The NCAA has proven they have minimal power.

Penn State just showed that in football. UNC has shown that every day since the original accusations came out. Baylor football chugging along at full speed has shown the same.

The NCAA hammer is not going to hurt KU even if they decide to try to drop it.

I just finished the two books by Kenneth N. Johnson, "University of Kansas Basketball Legends" and "More University of Kansas Basketball Legends" printed in 2013 and 2014. Great books giving a lot of insights to KU basketball players, coaches and others involved in KU history as well as teams and eras. I highly recommend them for reading. They also have a little humor in them. Here's a good one:

One day in an elementary school in Columbia, Missouri, a teacher asks her class if the Missouri Tigers is the students' favorite basketball team. The whole class says yes, except for Little jimmy.

The teacher asks, "What's your favorite basketball team Jimmy?"

Little Jimmy says, "The Kansas Jayhawks."

The teacher asks, "Well why is that?"

Little Jimmy says, "Well my dad is a Jayhawk fan, my mom is a Jayhawk fan . . . I guess that makes me a Jayhawk fan."

The teacher, angered by his reply, says, "If your dad was a moron and your mom was an idiot, what would that make you?"

Little Jimmy says, "Well, I guess that would make me a Missouri fan."

And your a world wide bore. Maybe the hammer won't fall. But I find all these transfers disturbing. Its just something KU never does. Maybe one or two but 7. Thats odd.

There are hundreds and hundreds of transfers every year. Hundreds. Be silly not to get in on them.

Like it or not the current system is what we have to deal with. The bottom line is to get the best players you can and run with it (which has always been the case). If that now means getting a lot of transfers, so be it. If Self getting all of these transfers works out, great, if not, then we can gripe. Self has a great basketball mind. I prefer to trust him until proven wrong.

I guess. Time will be the verdict on the transfers. Its obvious they desired to come to KU because of its excellent tradition and its a place to get better. OADs come because of the exposure KU gets due to its numerous nationally televised games. A few of them I thought could have cared less about being at KU outside of the aforementioned exposure.

It would not surprise me if HCBS decided to take his shot in the nba. But it ain't gonna be with the best franchise in the leaugue.


Self's players get mixed up in too many scandals for a corporate-focused pro team to be interested in his baggage. Winning isn't enough.

16-23 YO's, Controlling their behavior at home or while away at school, get real everybody. As one who has raised 7 it is very difficult at best. As for college athletes it is the responsibility of parents, coaches and universities. As for professional athletes, put large amounts of money in their pockets and not much a coach can do to control their actions. Let's face it, the pro players are more important to the organization than the coaches. Just my opinion. When I was that age it didn't take a large amount of money, just enough to buy a case of beer. At that point, look out. Anything could happen. LOL

One thing to keep in mind concerning college students and professional players is the age of reaching maturity. That certainly varies but one study I read suggested age 32 for the average age of maturity for men. I assume that speaks more of mental and emotional maturity than physical. College student ages would generally fall into the 18 - 23 years. That would mean many, if not most, are not going to be all that mature. Of course professional athletes are going to be considerably older on the average. Most college athletes aren’t going to have the maturity and focus of a Frank Mason. So, yes, college coaches are going to have a lot more immature guys to deal with than pro coaches, but pro coaches also will have to deal with a lot of immaturity as well as overpaid duds that have no desire to listen to their coaches. Considering what ages he is dealing with, I think Self does a good job as well as many other college coaches.

Because of the KC Star, our issues last year were made out to be more than what they were. Magnified by 10. I have just watched 5 or 6 players leave Nebraska this offseason. Thats cause for concern. I don't see our issues being close to that or even close to scarying off incoming recruits.

Spurs thing is not out of the question. Its on the horizon. The offer will be made. Whether or not Self would take it is another. His best friend and former roommate is the GM. ITs not out of the question. In someways, the transfers coming in makes you wonder about SElf and his tenure. I think its all going to be for not. Self is a college coach. The only area that I would say could cause him to leave is the politics in the college game. We all know that college recruiting is based on who can skirt that grey area without getting caught the longest. Maybe Self is tired of that grey area getting smaller for the ones who abide, and getting larger for those who don't.

What you say certainly has a ring of truth to it, yet, probably most of our conjecturing has some ring of truth to it. But I'm afraid that all of our conjecturing is for naught as only time will reveal what is reality. But we enjoy doing it. I seriously doubt that Self will leave coaching in the college ranks until he retires, which I feel might be sooner than most of us would like. He certainly makes enough that financial security should not be a concern. However, he is only number five among college coaches in annual income. Here are the top six: Coach K, $7,299,666; Calipari, $6,880,000; Pitino, $5,093,000; Miller, $4,950,000; Self, $4,940,000 and Izzo, $3,745,769. These figures will vary according to how they are calculated. I could handle retirement with just one year of any of these annual incomes.

I am surprised to see Colbey go. I thought that next season might be bring more playing time for him. But I suspect that Self was straight with him about his possible minutes for the upcoming season. Apparently they would be less than what I was thinking. I have to believe that Self knows his players and their potential much better than I or any of us do. Anyone who thinks Self doesn’t want to win doesn’t know Self. Self has a lot more on the line than I do so I trust him to do what he thinks is best. Self’s winning percentage of .829 (the best of all coaches the past 14 years) at KU is no accident.

I just read something quite interesting today. Recently got the book, Kansas Jayawks: A Year To Remember, Inside the Greatest Season in KU Basketball History. On page 172 I read, We've also got a few other buddies named Wildcat (Tony Fankhauser) and Jim West. One's a Kansas State fan and one is a Missouri fan. They pretty much hate KU.

I have no idea if this Jim West is the same one that posts on our KU board, don't even know if that's his real name. If it is him, that gives us a better understanding as to why he says some of the things that he does.

The Jim West I'm referring to apparently went to a sports bar in Overland Park and was part of a group with some KU fans as well as the K-Stater during 2008 but would leave when the KU game came on. I figured it was a different person, but you never know. It's a small world we live in.

Jim West is partially right. For many years Self didn't adapt to the type of talent he had on hand. He would force teams with speed and talent run the old half court high slow.

Therefore teams that had should have won it all did not because that style forced them to play down to the inferior competition (VCU and UNI). Only in the last few years has he adapted his style to the talent. More transition and the 4 guard concept. He is a stubborn Okie thats finally shedding himself of the Iba theory of coaching. Hopefully he figures out how best to use this season's squad.

Marshall is not a good fit. He doesn't recruit at a high level. He's expensive. He's unproven in a major conference. He is as little-brother as they come.

We can do much better in this stupid hypothetical.

Don't want that guy associated with the University of Kansas.

We'll see how Marshall does this year now that they joined the AAC. He'll have to recruit better to succeed in that conference.

Only mid-majors care about conference results. The NATIONAL tournament is all that matters for real programs.

WSU low expectations every year (like a 10 seed) has always made Marshall look so good. Now the conference they move to has a higher RPI and will be stuck as a 5,6 seed some years. That's presuming he stays and doesn't move to Indiana...

54 years old with one sweet sixteen and one final four isn't something that looks good, imo.

When he got a five seed, he flopped in the first round. When he got a one seed, he flopped in the second round. His bad seeding is his own doing.

I’m really encouraged about the potential for this upcoming season. I believe that we have a really good team that has the potential to go all the way. BUT IF, everyone reaches or exceeds their potential and we have no Bragg situations or injuries, then I think we can be the team to go for all the marbles. We’re heavy on guards, with some good height, which means that Self may go with a four guard line up part of the time. With Dok at center and Preston, along with Whitman and Lightfoot, at forward, Self will also be in good position for his beloved high/low part of the time. Having this double offensive threat makes it more difficult for teams to prepare for us and gives us a better situation to better compete with other teams. We have good experience along with some good newcomers and good depth at all positions except at center where that ONE could be a beast. An additional plus are the transfers that will give great competition for practice. One other BUT IF and that is pulling together as a TEAM. That’s what we did in 2008. Perhaps being 2018 is a good omen.

Another thought 52 - 88 =s 30+ years. 88 - 08 =s 20 years. 08 - 18 =s 10 years. Kind of a pattern there. BUT IF . . . . makes me really excited!

A huge plus for KU ball next season is the Italy tour. Just gives a great plus for coming together.

A potential road to the FF - Wichita, Omaha and San Antonio. We all remember San Antonio.

Next season . . the year of the 4? 4 NCAA championships, 14 consecutive conference championships, a 40 - 0 record. Yes I know the 40 - 0 is a far stretch, but they say good things come in threes so . . . . If I could only pick one of these, I'd take the 40 - 0. That would be a great Thanksgiving bargain - 3 for 1!

And we start the regular season against UK. Good test to see what and where we are. Makes the Italy tour appear even more important.

Looks like the Basketball Board is slowing down on posts being made, though seems to still have a good number of views hitting it. The KU Football Message board has more recent posts than does the Basketball Board. Perhaps anticipation of the football team making a little more noise this upcoming season is rising.

Apparently you have an impossible time following anything that I'm saying:

1) Kansas and KU can do, and deserves, better. The problem is complacency in mediocrity caused by:

2) Influence from an inordinate amount of ambitionless scum that would rather cling to "tradition" than make an honest attempt at progress. It is no coincidence that this group is generally relegated to rural areas.

UCLA has more going on than just basketball...that's the whole point. UCLA properly treats athletics as one-of-many things they should be doing well. When a university is solely focused on athletics, you know it's alumni base is full of ruralites or their ilk.

ARWU Rankings

UCLA: 12
KU: 201-300

Oh yes, fixing the problem. 2 steps:

1) Break away from the ignorant, ruralite-controlled Kansas Board of Regents.

2) Leave the ignorant, ruralite-controlled Big 12.

You agree with both, you just don't know it yet.

Quote:

It wouldn't be as hard as you might think. Currently KU gets 18% of its cash from the state, and it continues to decline. KU has a sizeable endowment that can help withstand the immediate effect of moving to an operating expense model with a budget of 82% of the existing budget, so there would be no noticeable short term negative effect from simply cutting the cord. Of course, the transition would likely be more gradual than that. The 18% loss can be made up pretty easily through raising tuition (which has been and continues to be way too low) and ramping up private fundraising. Alternatively, or simultaneously, KU could scale back many of the useless programs that it maintains simply because the Board of Regents requires them to. The State schools have plenty of room to maintain the lesser programs that act only as cost centers for a research institution like KU.

KU would then be free to work to advance its research goals and objectives and begin to actually move up in academic stature. No more ham-stringing by the rural KS Legislature.

? No idea where you are getting this idea. You should probably learn how to read and follow a conversation. You asked what was the basis of my opinion on Kansas and KU. I gave it to you. I made the point that UCLA has a lot more going on than just basketball - a lot more for their fans and alumni to take pride in. KU can achieve that too with the right vision and eliminating the ambitionless scum that is keeping it down.

Of course, that's moving to a full private model. The better, but unfortunately less feasible, option is for KU to establish its own Board of Regents and split the State schools into their own. This is exactly what California has and it works extremely well.

You can't have an effective Board of Regents that tries to manage both research and teaching institutions. They are always at odds with each other and simply operate too differently. The main problem with Kansas is that the Board is made up almost entirely of individuals only familiar with the teaching institution model and they can't govern KU effectively.

Not coincidentally, the Board is made up of rural idiots.

It's also possible to take a hybrid approach. Penn State (your favorite school), for example, has reduced its reliance on state funds to the point where it only receives 6% of its budget from the state. With such diminished influence, the school largely operates as a private institution with its own board and oversight and not much the state can do to ham string it.

As evidence it works - a formerly crappy state school in the middle of Pennsylvania has now reached #77 on the ARWU rankings.

This bias exhibited by jw against rural people is similar to the East/West coast bias against fly over country. It’s the same bias that royalty has against the common folk. We see this same bias often exhibited by career politicians in our own country as well as in other Western nations. It is also seen in tribal units where the tribal chief can tell all others what and how to do. It’s also all too often see in CEOs and other executive officials concerning their attitude toward employees. But such thinking is out of order and greatly in error. The Magna Carta of 1216 was the beginning of a movement against such thinking. There were still a lot of changes to be made in the thinking of people and our own Declaration of Independence helped to move us forward, “We hold this truth to be self evident that all men are created equal.” As is evidenced by much of our spouting off in our own nation and even on this board, we still have a long way to go to get it right–that all people are valuable and no one is better than another. Yes, there may be various levels of ability, accomplishments and even effort, but all have value, worth and rights. Much of our advancement has come from the initiative of the “common” people, especially those from rural areas. Some people are too full of themselves to recognize the value in others. There’s always those who want to drag us back into the Dark Ages. Kansas and the Midwest (flyover country) may be rural, but it is made up of a great people as well as schools and particularly basketball teams and specifically KU Jayhawk basketball.

Yeah, those common people that had the initiative decided to move from the rural areas into urban centers around the time of the Magna Carta. That probably wasn't your point though...

Quote:
Some people are too full of themselves to recognize the value in others. There’s always those who want to drag us back into the Dark Ages. Kansas and the Midwest (flyover country) may be rural, but it is made up of a great people as well as schools and particularly basketball teams and specifically KU Jayhawk basketball.


This is the problem with you ruralites. Someone comes in that recognizes your potential and can articulate the path for your improvement and success, but you only respond with ignorant, defensive, and fear-based defiance. I can't wait to hear how wanting improvement for both KU and Kansas somehow equates to "dragging you back to the Dark Ages." lolx100000000

The disparity in wealth and progress between the coasts and "fly-over country" (your term, not mine) will only grow while you ruralites continue to stick your fingers in your ears, yelling "blah blah blah I can't hear you!! FaRmInG iS ImpOrTanT And iM NoT ReAlLy A FAiLuRe BeCauSe I CaN cAlL tH0zE CoAsTaL PeoPle Gay AnD StUff lOoK At My TruCk Im So MaNlY!!!!"

It is precisely this retarded thought process that has caused Kansas to have its credit rating lowered TWICE in the last few years and be forced to close schools all around the state. The rural mentality yields nothing but failure.

Your posts reveal just how weak-minded you are. Actually they really reveal just how mindless you are. The slickest they is, that is a puffed up, overbearing, mindless city slicker. The quickest they is, that is a dimwitted, mindless but fast talker. Yes, when properly understood, you very adequately describe yourself. Today you are awarded with a Dewey Badge.

Quite the opposite.

How in the hell will you get the rural out of a rural state.


There are already 5 state schools to serve the rural population or those with rural ambitions. KU needs to fill a different niche.

Quote:
Do you really think KU is capable of becoming a top 50 or even a top 100 Academic rated school.


Yes, absolutely.

Quote:
Its not going to happen and the locals really don't care if it does.


Cause and effect.

Quote:
Puhlease tell me you live in California.


Why?

Quote:
Or is this actually morganraider of old. That guy hated Kansas also. Nah ...can't be Morgan liked the ladies so there's that. Keep on flaming Jimbo nothing is going to change out here in the hinderlands...


k


Cause and effect. It won't happen cause the locals will never lose their rural effect. Thats why they live and stay in Kansas...they like being rural and there is nothing wrong with that. At least the same or less wrong as being a pompous city ass..hole. And you are from Kansas hence the angst. Man up and accept pms morgs. I know it's you.

No, they are forced into a rural existence because they can't hack it in advanced society. They pretend to "like it" for no reason other than cognitive dissonance.

Yeah, fill us in when something noteworthy happens on the farm. No, bestiality doesn't count.

lol

If you've got something to say, you can say it in the open. Only cowards hide in pms.

I just finish reading a book that is a tremendous read. Danny Manning says it’s, “A great read,” but it’s even more than that. The Book – PHOG The Most Influential Man in Basketball by Scott Morrow Johnson. It was printed in 2016 and probably supplants the book by Blair Kerkhoff, Phog Allen: The Father of Basketball Coaching published in 1996.

I knew quite a bit about Coach Allen, but learned a lot more through this book. The writer does an excellent job in holding your interest and making Doc Allen come to life. After reading the book, I have no doubt that Phog Allen was the most influential man in basketball as the title attests. He truly was the Father of Basketball Coaching and had a hand in most everything to help bring basketball to what we know it as today. The sad thing is that so many younger people, especially out side of KU fans, have little or no knowledge of the great influence he had on basketball.

I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t know much about Allen, knows a lot about Allen or just wants to learn more about the beginnings and development of basketball.
