Have you guys noticed many of the players that played under Roy Williams don't come back to KU for many team events? Bills kids seam to support the program in a big way but not Roys KU players

Weird.

I wonder if they don't feel welcome by the HCBS staff/family. Or maybe they feel resentment by the way the fans treated HCRW on his way out the door.

Weird.

Those guys you listed, and others are some of my all time favs. And some of our all time greats.

Weird.

I've always thought kids played more for their particular coaches and teammates than for their school. Maybe with Roy gone they don't feel at home here. Pierce is different. He's always followed KU.

Greg Gurley, Greg Ostertag, Aaron Miles, Wayne Simeon, were Roy boys, though Miles and Simeon were crossovers. I'm sure a lot of others have been back for various functions.

Not all of Larry's guys have come back, but many have. Same is true of Ted's guys.

Look how long it took Wilt to come back. I wouldn't make too much of it.

Right. Most players come to KU to play at an elite program that provides maximum exposure as a stepping stone to make the NBA..or get an education...its 1-4 years then gone. Unless they grew up as a Jayhawk fan after they leave none really are going to live ...eat...drink everything Jayhawks like us .

So following the coach makes sense..Considering KUs geographical location I am surprised on how many actually comeback to participate in alumni games and attend regular games.
