Why not? I like the idea.

We've got our big name guy with proven success. If in three years, we're talking about firing him because he hasn't won 6 games yet, then the problem isn't the coach...it's US as fans. You've got to be realistic about what Les Miles is taking over, which is to say one of the worst football programs in all of power conference football.

Welp Quentin, if you'd shot 6 to 8 percentage points better from behind the arc, your season would have been better than "good, OK, alright". Nobody was shooting those shots but you, you can't blame the fans because YOU keep on missing.

Alas, you're probably better suited for mid major basketball. It will hopefully provide you with a slightly lesser level of competition so that you can work on your game and maybe one day live up to the hype you had coming out of high school.

Mr_Garza (Freddie Garza) says...

There's one thing and one thing only that will extend and sustain this success...OUR full support of the football program. If you truly want to see a successful program in Lawrence, then you'll have to support football as enthusiastically as you support basketball. Period.

No leaving games at halftime. No giving up on the team halfway through the season when they only have 1 win. It takes revenue to sustain a football program. That means you go to the game even if the on field product is awful.

If you serve your suspension during the off season, did you really serve a suspension?

Frank's gonna make a good living playing basketball, whether that's in the NBA or overseas.

Mr_Garza (Freddie Garza) says...

Sweet, go take your 38% fg percentage and 35% 3pt percentage to Houston, they're gonna LOVE you.

alternate headline: six schools will take the fall for widespread NCAA corruption and hypocrisy that extends WELL beyond "just" six schools. Meanwhile, the most corrupt organization in American sports (the NCAA) gets off scot free. Again.

This guy Silvio seems like a pretty good dude. I hope he has a PoY type of season and becomes an NBA lottery pick, it would be well deserved.

How can you say that Grimes wouldn't have been given every opportunity to play as a "point guard" when Coach Self has a LONG history of recruiting and playing together 2 point guards at the same time? I mean, it wasn't a decade ago when Devonte Graham (a point guard) was starting along side Frank Mason (aka another point guard). Russell Robinson and Mario Chalmers, anyone?

Under Self, the 2 backcourt positions are generally interchangeable. The harsh reality is this though: Grimes is in NO way a natural point guard, and doesn't shoot the ball consistently well enough to be an NBA 2 guard (though he DOES have the size to play either position).

The guy's got a LONG ways to go to regain his previous stature and reputation out of high school, and the fact that he cuts and runs like this speaks volumes about his intestinal fortitude. Just goes to show, you can hype a high school player as much as you like, it really doesn't mean a thing.

As I've said before, and it may be harsh, but I think it's true...his decision to leave is addition by subtraction.
