Preston remains on the bench wholeheartedly supporting the team as long as Bill Self wants him to or the NCAA says he can't.

Bill Self knows it would not look good to future recruits if he sent Preston walking before the NCAA says he has to..And the young man is under scholarship, by all accounts an excellent teammate.

His draft stock has plummeted. He perhaps should stay in college another season (if he's cleared to play) to improve it.

Play overseas now? The draft is only a few months away. His only true option now is "patiently waiting for the NCAA to clear him" as you said in your post.

The only point I keep trying to drive home to you is, in my opinion, we are throwing a Hail Mary hoping the NCAA will clear Prestion to play and I think we've reached the point where our expectations are perhaps detrimental to our chances of success when the Big Dance rolls around.

And thank you for acknowleging my intellectual heft. I am much too humble to go around tooting my own horn.

At this point in the game billy p. has no choice but to ride this out.

Less than 60 days from now we are competing in the first weekend of the ncaa tourney. Makes no matter to the outcome of our season if billy p. is cleared to compete or not. That ship has sailed.

Would have liked to see what the team looked like with Billy in the mix. I wish him well. Uncertainty over for the roster. Time for coaches and players to focus on the group they now have.

What gets me is why don't people follow the rules regarding gifts to college athletes. If anyone should know NCAA regs it would be Adidas, amirite?

"Billy Preston will never play another minute in a KU uniform." Nov. 2017

And I kept repeating it while others here made excuses for the kid and pointed fingers at the NCAA, some even alleging conspiracies and vendetta against KU.

I hate to be an "I told you so", but. . .I told you so.

Shed no tears for Billy Preston. He put himself and the university in a very bad situation and it was completely unnecessary.

We're lucky Bill Self is our head coach and had the foresight to keep Preston off the court while we threw our Hail Mary to the NCAA, otherwise we'd be sitting home and only watching March Madness.

Now that it's all over, would the LJW lapdogs now tell us who the car belonged to and how Prestion acquired it in the first place?

You can't get away with that without explaining Self's blame.

Recruiting him in the first place is to blame. Ala Alexander...check these guys out better before recruiting. I am sure Snacks and other team members knew Billy was driving an expensive sports car way before he scuffed up the tires. Do better...there is no risk if there is nothing wrong from the get go.
