LaGerry will be the lone senior on the squad. Talent-wise tremendous. Can't afford to have him disappear in games and must be a lock-down defender. Interesting that Self laid down a "list of rules and stipulations" for him. The leash will be very, very short.

I am surprised Self brought him back. But he has talent..he was great in the 2nd half of that E8 game vs Duke. The leash will be short indeed. Unfortunately this decision probably will piss one or more of the recruits off. We are definitely loaded for this upcoming season.

Vick does not play defense, and with his jumping ability he should had average two blocks per game. Most likely a 6th man off the bench.

Memphis poverty with the decision to leave college with 12 credits shy of a degree was stupid. No interest from pro basketball was a life changing momment for Vick.

Vick's return is good for his life, good if he accepts a lesser role, and bad if he doesn't improve for a chance of overseas ball for a couple of years.

I think Vick's eyes might have been opened during the NBA tryouts as to his short comings. Self laying down some stipulations probably won't hurt either. I think his coming back may be a bonus. Guess we'll find out.

Experience is always a bonus...but I don't want an unhappy Dotson or Grimes over this decision. Vick is in no man's land...between a 2 and a 3....touchy situation.

LeGerry returning for his senior season is a good thing. A very good thing.

I love seniors.

I would expect a cagey old veteran to love seniors.

In the long run it will help the team. I always saw him as a six man not a starter. I hope Bill told him that he would have to earn every minute and be a better teammate. It just seemed he was to himself and not a very approachable dude. I like his game but he is not a pure 2 nor 3 and too small to play 4 like he had to do last year. He could turn out to being the key to the National Championship this year

Mixed emotions. Feel good for Vick but scared if he doesn't fit in.

I feel good for Kansas, since we have some potential mixed in with Vick's experience. No one should feel entitled to start or play this year, except Doke.

I just hope Vick loses the negative attitude.
He was always one of the guys Self was referring to mid-season when he said "several guys" had a bad attitude or weren't trying.
I think his mom La-La-Land was a big part of the problem.
I think momentarily Self was relieved to move on when he decided to leave and get some fresh positive attitudes on the team.
He seems to have eaten some humble pie since leaving and hopefully understands that he has been given a big opportunity from Self. Hopefully he loses the negativity and is a positive force for leadership for the team.
He is a good shooter and is really athletic and has Final Four experience. Being the only senior, he can be a great leader if he stays positive.
