Well, 180° is only halfway and you know what they say about half measures. We should do a complete 360° circle finishing up back where we started.

The same excuse used by opponents to a minimum wage increase.

NBA sets 19 as their age limit and the NHL is at 18. The NCAA granted hockey players the same use of agents as early as high school.
I think now the biggest difference is the one year that allows hockey players to go pro as soon as they turn 18. Basketball punishes kids who graduate on time, forcing them to play an additional year which should be considered collusion between the NBA and the NCAA.
Basketball players are first screened (NBA scouts get another year to evaluate players) and the players are a major revenue stream for their schools.

And who decides who is "elite"? 60 players drafted every year. If a player wasn't drafted, just how elite were they?

And I don't need to go anywhere to see KU play! Next year also.

I think Self has made a few errors in the transfer department but overall, he has gotten it right more often than not.
Completely agree that KU is a make or miss make University. There are those who made the team by their inner toughness and hard work.
If I had to pick Self's biggest miss, Andrew White lll was the tough-nosed guard who loves to drive but Brannen Greene had such a beautiful shooting motion, I think it might have swayed his opinion but obviously one or the other was going to leave.
Anybody missing Jack Whitman? Obviously no but what about Dwight Coleby? We were arguably one big away from a national championship

"I hope the ncaa / fbi makes their decision soon on Silvio. "
Reread what Shannon wrote. I think the statement was extremely clear.

Vick and Charlie Moore are both capable of hitting the three and both will shoot near 40% from the three-point line. More guess than statistics.
We probably need one more player to stretch the defense and knock down threes.

I'm starting to believe that Silvio will be in uniform and play next season. This year's team is stacked although a little light on experience.
