My way-to-early starting five:WilsonMcCullarClemenceDickHarris
First off the bench:PettifordAdams/MartinRice
But I like most any combo, Freshman are almost always a crapshoot on how fast they adjust, but it's an exciting team! #rockchalk #runitback

The only flaw in that is that Harris has zero offensive game right now. Dude never shoots and isn't a threat to score at all. At least w/Garrett in, you have the hope that he can score some. I feel like the problem has just been inconsistency. Braun was a disaster Saturday, both on O & D. He was great the game before. Wilson has been up & down, as has McCormack, who was great for 3 games in a row. Agbaji? Where the heck was he? All really good players but it's tough for them to string really good games back to back to back. It's baffling.

Dang. Without saying it, they're saying a lot about this team, staff and leadership. I hate to see it, can't say I blame them. Team regression is a tough thing.

The boys will be fine. I think this one might have been a little tough to get up for to them, plus, they looked tired. They've had two road trips and Creighton will be their 6th game in 13 days with 3 of those ranked top 20 and two top 10. That's just nuts.UK and NDSU were ugly wins, but you gotta have and win some of those every season. Rock Chalk!

It had Covid and wasn't allowed to play! :-)

Holy Hoops that's as tough a schedule as I can remember! 5 in the top 10 from the B12, plus ranked OU & OSU is crazy! #rockchalk

So, isn't Opting Out and Leaving the Program two different scenarios? I thought opting out (which I thought was the only opt-out language being due to covid), one would stay as kind of a member of the team, not practicing/playing obviously, and back next year. But this sounds like he's gone-gone, leaving the program. May be semantics, as it seems he'll never wear the uni again, but it's a shame KU invested so much time/energy/money in defending him that it goes down like this. Best of luck to SDS regardless.

Thankfully, no fans were harmed in person for having to sit through that debacle. At least I could turn the channel to an old SNL rerun with JLo, Still painful to watch, but less emotionally involved. And now, I'm not even emotionally involved in KU football. #firejefflong

And he NEVER fouled out of any game in his entire career. I'd never heard of the '61/'62 season stat of him never subbing out and playing every single game. That's just incredible and really unheard of for a player today when players 'rest' themselves. He's def in my top 3, but those 6 players are all amazing.

Jeff Long is a self-serving tool that's made KU Athletics worse since his hiring.
