Didn't see a thread in the first few pages. The story doesn't say for how long or for what reason.

I think CJ gives them athleticism that Sasha Kaun doesn't have - he's active, rebounds and block shots - but he's been too foul prone his first two years.

C.J. Giles’ future with the Kansas basketball team is uncertain following disciplinary action imposed by head coach Bill Self.

The Kansas City Star learned Tuesday afternoon that Giles has been prohibited from practicing with the Jayhawks because of an off-court issue. KU coach Bill Self declined to give specifics about Giles’ situation, although it’s not believed to involve legal trouble.

“He’s not with us right now,” Self told The Star. “He’s tending to some personal issues that must be resolved. If and when he resolves those issues, he and I will discuss his future with the program.”

The 6-foot-10 Giles averaged 6.2 points and 4.8 rebounds as a sophomore in 2005-06, when he started 13 games.

You'll think renegade when we stomp the shit out of everyone in our way this season. I plan on being particularly obnoxious this year. You chumps might as well send us the Big XII trophy right now to save your blood being spilled.

Miami is a disgusting and shitty football program, and I don't even care about the shit that happens OFF the field.

What kind of program condones..no..encourages for the team to jump on the logo of the opposing school BEFORE the game? I also love the "suspensions" handed down by the Miami AD. FIU kicked players off the team.

Add that to the fact that hardly anyone gives a shit about Miami football INSIDE the city of Miami (unfortunately there are alot of dumbass fans outside the city), a pro-style stadium and atmosphere (nothing college about Miami football), and Lamar Thomas (haha), really, **** Miami.

Saulbad...I have to admit...being a rabid KU fan....I'm a bit concerened with all the bs that's been going on at KU lately.....the sad thing is...people made such a big deal about Roy's boys...and how Roy was a saint....but he was probably as guilty as any NCAA coach....so its pointless to say "I yearn for the Roy days when we ran a spotless program." But I'm afraid we've been straddling this line lately where we could go one way or the other....maybe the NCAA's judgment send us down a path more ethical....or the next thing you know, Bill Self is photographed tapping a keg at a sorority party at Iowa State (while the rest of the team is on a plane back to Lawrence)....

Either way...the NCAA needs to rethink many of its rules....so they can at least keep the illegal activity under control (because it happens everywhere)...and on top of that....it only makes sense financially as more and more players leave after 1 or 2 years....(and the TV product suffers????).

just a thought or two.

That jumped to my mind too, probably not true but who knows? One thing I am sure of is suspending CJ is a lot easier with Arthur in the fold.

I'm waiting to see the details on this whole thing, they'll even release them. I could definately see this just being handled in house.

One last note and I'm not trying to jab at KSU at all, this news just brought it to mind. Is Cartier Martin with the team still or was he suspended? I thought I had heard something a while back but I may be completely off.

The Jayhawk board I go to has every rumor from "he has enrolled at Gonzaga" to "he went to the NBA early". I think Saul is closer than either of those. If KU needs a scholie to open up what better victim than "Iron Paws" Giles? To paraphrase Bob Stoops "I think we can get someone to replace his 6 points per game"

they don't lose the scholarship til next year iirc.

in fact, i think they can even push the loss to 2008 if they need to.

What kind of silly comment is that Saul? First of all I watched the first GM and WSU game in Wichita and it was a last second buzzer beater runner for three that won it for GM. In the NCAA's GM was on a major role and played great and deserved to win and they beat a lot of great teams.

I'll remind you that your purple vag's didn't even make the NIT field.

KU got drilled by Bradley a team WSU took two out of three from including one on the Bradleys home court.

So, you and your bad Football team can just eat it and for you KU kids. Well just keep on doing what you do - "lack of instititutional control" yeah, it's called cheating.

That's my guess as well. I don't like Sasha Kaun as THE guy in the middle though; and Giles added versatility, athleticism, and defense to the baseline. It may be the Achilles heel of the team; even with that though, it's a team that will certainly battle for a spot in the final four.

If they don't get knocked off by the Guallaudet, Wellsley College, or the Tuskegee Institute in a first round matchup....:(

You're right that Giles is markedly better defensively in the middle than Kahn. Both are foul-prone though, so this really stings our depth at the "5".

This is from an SI article posted today about KU Basketball:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/writers/seth_davis/10/18/hoop.thoughts/index.html



Lost in the shuffle: Rodrick Stewart. I was inclined to go with 6-8 junior Darnell Jackson here, but that was before 6-10 junior center C.J. Giles blew off a morning workout this week and was essentially suspended from the team. Self is leaving the door open for Giles to return, but my guess is he's done at Kansas. That means Jackson, who might have redshirted, gets bumped up in the rotation. On the other hand, Stewart, a 6-4 junior from Seattle, averaged just 3.2 minutes per game last year. With Collins in the fold and clearly capable of contributing right away, it's hard to see how Stewart's minutes will increase.

This pisses me off. Why do people think Kirk Hinrich is such a Saint? Because he's white and from Iowa? Please. I am from Kirk's hometown, and let me assure you Kirk is far from a Saint. I'm not going to sit here and slander what I know about Kirk, and he's not a horrible guy, but all of (US) KU fans make him out to be Mother Theresa. Why not mention guys like Jacque Vaughn and Wayne Simien instead? The classiest players EVER at KU

Kansas University reserve junior center C.J. Giles, removed from the team indefinitely this week to address “personal issues,” according to coach Bill Self, is due in Douglas County District Court on Monday morning to face an allegation that he owes $4,097 in unpaid child support, according to court records.

Giles is the father of a son born in March 2005. He was ordered in April 2006 to pay the mother, a Lawrence resident, $241 in child support per month, plus a judgment of $2,892 for expenses the woman had incurred since the baby’s birth. But an affidavit filed Aug. 31 by an attorney representing the state’s Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services alleges that Giles “failed, neglected, or refused to fully comply with the orders of the court; no payment has ever been posted to this case.”

The purpose of Monday’s hearing before Judge Pro Tem Peggy Kittel will be for Giles to give a reason why he should not be held in contempt of court. A court document instructs him to bring paycheck stubs and other documentation of his income.

If this is the reason he got removed from the team this is F***ing BULL$HIT. How do you expect a college student to pay 300 a month? Are you kidding me? No way in hell could I pay for child support in college, I could barely afford enough to get by, and CJ Giles probably doesn't have enough time to have a job because of all of his basketball obligations. It's really amazing how much time these guys have to put in.

It better not be a morality police thing about how he should be paying and taking care of the child. Maybe the woman should have closed her legs? Do everyone a favor and put the child up for adoption. Let me assure you it will have a better life than with some drunk college chick who has no money. What do you expect a good looking, young man that is envied by everyone on campus to do? As the great Joe Paterno said "Hey, a cute girl knocks on your door, what are you supposed to do?".

Loaded for bear is an idiom which simply means:

Fully prepared for action

This term, dating from the mid-1800s, alludes to the heavy charge of powder or lead that hunters use for large animals like a bear.

Ya kaun is out which hurts us early. It might however help us in the long run giving some PT to a player that might not have gotten it and helping with that depth during tourney time.

He's undeniably the best player in college bball. Yes, he's ugly. So what. He's a great player, has an amazing work ethic and is a really nice guy (see him all the time around campus and in the clubs).

I'm so looking forward to the Las Vegas matchup. I've been wanting to see KU play Florida since I've been in school here and each year I've picked the two to play each other in the tourney.

I think Florida wins and repeats as NC's, but for every game they don't play the Gators, Rock Chalk.

I've got a better question can you name one Shocker B-ball player or coach who has been in trouble with the law or the NCAA since Turgeon took over? I can name several for KU. Giddens, Giles and of course the classic "Lack of institutional control" for Basketball and Football. KU has a great history and instead of wondering why your coach is using up Mickey D's all-americans like toilet paper (instead of graduating them) you guys just say we'll plug in Darrell Arthur. Sounds like a mercenary system run by an out of control athletic department. At KU Being good is all that matters.

Great job KU. You sold your soul to be good at any price. Reminds me of when Marty brought in Wayne Simmons and Bong Morris in a desperate attempt to win it all. That worked out didn't is Ari?

Sure Saul, WSU is a college located in a city. Wichita is not a college town like Manhattan or Lawrence per se so it's not dominated by 18 to 22 year old students thus making it less "collegiate" Some of that is changing though as WSU is marketing itself towards high school kids. There is a good student section at WSU b-ball games. 1000 or so students. I enjoyed my time at KU (yes Ari I did the whole Frat thing) and I spent many nights in Aggieville sucking back suds and talking to hot chicks from Great Bend and points west. That being said WSU is my team and after spending the last half decade in The ATL and Memphis I think Wichita has changed a lot and for the better as a city and I'm enjoying living here. In fact, I went to a great costume party in Old Town Sat. night and there were many a cutie waiting to be chatted up. Oh and for the record, I'm 31 unlike Skip who is 61 with a swollen prostate.

I'm happy you like that overgrown cow town. But it isn't for all of us. That's why I live in Tulsa. Even though Tulsa U. is private and doesn't depend on state funds, WE HAVE A FOOTBALL TEAM. And a pretty good one at that. We also have a World Class golf course in Southern Hills (rated top ten in the world) where numerous PGA tourneys are held. Hutchinson has a better Golf Course than anything Wichita has (Prairie Dunes). The Carney brothers originated Pizza Hut in Wichita (I was in the Kansas Air National Guard with them) but found it necessary to move...............to Tulsa. Why? The stated reason was that they couldn't draw top level executives to Wichita because of its lack of "quality of life". A lack of quality museums, Fine Arts, etc. that Tulsa has. Wichita is a cowtown that has never done anything to improve itself. Beech, Boeing and Cessna are located there to take advantage of the cheap labor. When I lived there the joke was the big 3 lured in Okies, Arkies and Darkies. Wichita is a third rate town.

Perkins was in cover up mode and to believe otherwise is naive. The facts are KU cheated and got caught and you can't spin that my crimson and blue friend. Giles is in trouble with the law. He's a dead beat dad and believe it or not there are laws regarding that. You see the word "appears" is a journalistic way of covering your arse for liable.

Perkins was in cover up mode and to believe otherwise is naive. The facts are KU cheated and got caught and you can't spin that my crimson and blue friend. Giles is in trouble with the law. He's a dead beat dad and believe it or not there are laws regarding that. You see the word "appears" is a journalistic way of covering your arse for liable.


What do you care anyway. Just throw Giles on the scrap heap like you did Giddens and plug in Arthur. KU only cares about winning who cares about the players right?

As a KU fan living in Lawrence, a Wichita State alum and former WSU athlete (track) that hung out with WSU basketball, baseball and football players, I'd suggest you STFD and STFU. I know shit about WSU that would make an OU fan go "Damn... that's crazy!". It's little wonder that before SMU got the death penalty, WSU was the most penalized school in NCAA history. I saw the underage girls and the drug deals, the pregnant girls crying in the parking lot while Mr. BMOC laughed and drove off in his hoopty.

Kindly get off your high horse now. What KU is dealing with now is NOTHING compared to the crap that went on at WSU back in the day. I know. I was part of it.

By that way that's ancient history as (if what you said actually happened like your said) it happened in the early 1980's. WSU runs a model program now and graduates kids. When you compare it to KU and it's "mickey d's revolving door" and the current NCAA violations it's clear KU has sold it's soul. Deal with but don't pull out 25 year old violations by WSU that are irrelevant to todays goings on.

I think every elite program pays their players under the table. Thats how they recruit. It's just the matter of getting caught or not. You would have to be stupid thinking that these MickeyD players don't get paid in some way other than a scholarship. Most of those players could get drafted in the NBA and there has to be some sort of motivation to play in college as opposed to getting paid millions in the NBA because I can almost guarantee that most of those players coming from the inner cities don't give a damn about a college degree. Why do you think many college athletes playing for national prominent programs major in communications and take bogus courses that a 10yr old could pass in? Everything in the NCAA is about money. More so now than it used to be. Institutions and boosters pay these high profile players under the table. It happens all the time. KU does it, I'm sure Huggy has done it as KSU, MU does it, I'm sure the all mighty clean Duke program does it as well. These high profile players potentially bring millions of dollars to the school's programs. You can't deny that many schools do this. It's just a hush hush deal until someone gets caught doing it.

This Spottswoode character is the true definition of an imbecile, in every sense of the word. KU Basketball is still considered to be one of the classiest organizations in all of college sports on a national level. Every coach would dream to be in the situation where you have so many McDonald All-Americans that some choose to go elsewhere because they can't win playing time. It's a testament to how great a recruiter Bill Self actually is. Right now, he has arguably more talent than any program in the country, and that is after letting bad seeds like Giddens, Giles, and Downs go on their merry way. Most programs would have to beg kids like that to stay. KU can afford to lose them because the McDonald All Americans line up at the door to come to KU and receive national recognition by playing on one of the elite programs in the country on national TV.

Keep telling yourself that n00b. Let me ask you this. If these "bad seeds" were so bad why did Self recruit them to begin with? Your argument is silly. I know KU has talent. What I'm saying is they treat their talent like meat and not young kids who need guidance. FYI, Giles, Giddens and Downs aren't the only kids that have left/been run off by KU in recent years. Say what you want about Roy at least Hinrich and Collison and the others stayed. Now it's a revolving door with a police blotter in some cases. Is that how KU alums want to be represented? or is winning the only thing that matters?

You joined the board a month before me...are you a "n00b" as well? And thanks for repeating your idiotic puppy mill comment. It helps solidify just how ignorant you truly are. Giddens wasn't a Bill Self recruit. He was in trouble before he came to KU, and got in trouble while he was here. He became a distraction to the program, and he left for a clean start. I believe that Giles is figuring things out, and will most likely return to the roster this year. Downs had mental issues and wasn't getting the playing time that he thought he deserved, which is bound to happen when you have a plethora of talent. What others were "run off"? Galindo? (see Micah Downs for an explanation on his departure) Padgett? (another Roy recruit that wanted to hit jump shots instead of bang inside with the bigs) Like I said, when you have more talent that most of the teams in the Big XII combined, kids are going to leave to find more playing time...it happens at top tier programs.

I personally think that Self is doing an amazing job at representing the University, and I am an alum. When kids have issues that they need to work out, he seperates them from the team to have them get their priorities straight (i.e. Hawkins, Giles, Giddens). There are instances where the players regained focus and returned to the team as a better teammate, a la Hawkins. That is not "treating players like meat"...it's treating them how they need to be treated to figure things out.

I'm not exactly sure why you felt the need to address this to me, as I am in no way under the pollyanna assumption that any aspect of big time college athletics is clean.

The NCAA is - IMO - a farce. The term student athlete, when applied to 95% of the players that play in revenue producing sports, is a farce

I was referring to the large number of KU fans - not just on this board - that refer to the Huggs hiring as "KSU selling their soul", as though their program is bastion of integrity.

Not a bad comeback on your part. I bet you worked on it all day. I'll give you credit it's the best I've seen on this board. For the record I'm not your son and my guess is your mostly (ex) athlete and have never been accused of being much of a thinker. You don't have any idea what your talking about regarding WSU athletics (as per your previous sorry post) so don't get on your old man soap box and woof at me.

I'll also point out to you that eventhough I've never been a D1 athlete I do understand world class competition and I've experienced that in several areas in my life so I do know a little bit about putting it on the line when the pressure is on so my "street" cred is just fine thank you.

Buddy, where have you been for the last few years? Have you locked yourself in your mothers basement? McDonalds All-Americans, in this day and age, RARELY stay for 4 years. Look at the other top tier programs: UK, UNC, Duke...they all have players that leave early every year. WHY???? Because they are good enough to go pro. Kansas will lose most of their impact players right now to the Pros before they graduate...because they are good enough to get lottery pick money at the next level. Coaches like Self, Roy, coack K, and Tubby all have to deal with a "revolving door" because they fight over the same top tier talent. This basketball team at KU is still a clean cut program. The NCAA infractions brought against KU were minor, unfortunately, they just got lumped in with the major football violations. Chiefaroo, you my friend are a damn fool.

I don't mind WSU, or KU. I figure my tax dollars support all the state universities in this state, so I shouldn't bag on them as an institution or anything like that. I'll lash out when the fans get annoying, which they do, and I expect the same kind of treatment because I do the same thing.

I don't think he is talking about players leaving to go pro.

and I've already commented on the players that transferred earlier in this thread. This guy acts as if KU could care less about the individual players, and that's just not the case. Bill Self isn't running the players off. Some are leaving for personal issues like Giddens, and others are leaving for playing time like Galindo. We have to remember that these guys are KIDS when they come in as freshmen. Downs is the perfect example. He was homesick AND he felt that he deserved more playing time. It was better for everyone that these players moved on. Self is NOT throwing them out on the streets. And it only appears like a "revolving door" because Self has no problem replacing these guys with even better players. Is this really being portrayed as a negative for the program?

Made to the final table in a big "Magic: The Gathering" tournament? Perhaps a one of three finals in a Tubgirl impersonation contest, and you went for it all after a heavy training session at Taco Chop?

Lay it all on the line, little man... that trophy's bigger than than the one you snagged at the Castro District Halloween Costume contest. I'm betting that famous piano player from West Allis, Wisconsin didn't even know his candelabra was missing.

I'm calling BS on that. KU has a high turnover rate and they're not graduating players nor are they leaving early to go pro in most cases. Self wipes his arse with his players. I respected Roy and before him Brown for what they did at KU but not this guy. Listen fellas I hope he stays at KU for a long time and has success because I suspect if they run "the toupee" out on a rail KU will probably offer the job to Turg. and I'd rather have him at WSU. I think my points are valid and that some of you are just hyper sensitive KU alums and fans. Get some perspective.

Call BS all you want. I've provided facts on why the players left...all you have done is speculate. Please, tell us "hyper sensitive" KU alums how Bill Self wipes his arse with his players? He has handled every transfer or suspension with nothing but class.

And my friend, If KU wanted Turgeon, they could have him in a heartbeat. Self is one of the top recruiters in the Country, if not the best. He has the team absolutely loaded with talent. We'd be losing the STARS on this team if Self treated them poorly. However, as I've pointed out, a few times now, we've lost players that either needed more playing time and/or needed a fresh start. That, in no way, is Bill Self's fault.

I don't know how I'm not getting this through your head. I'm starting to feel like I'm playing basketball with a retarded kid...sooner or later I'm going to have to call you for a double-dribble.

Keep telling yourself how good the program is. The facts are the last two years your vaunted hawks got their arses bounced in the first round. Last year KU got bounced by a team WSU took two of three from. Turg. might one day end up at KU. Then again he might not.

I could care less if Turgeon ends up at KU. We have the right guy for the program.

Now, you once again failed to produce any facts as to how Bill Self treats his players like pieces of meat. Of course KU fans aren't thrilled with the past 2 tournament results, but let's be honest here. The Sweet 16 for Wichita State last year was the pinnacle for the program. It just doesn't get any better than that. I think we both know that the history AND the future of KU's program is still a cut above Wichita State's. Now please, I beg you, enlighten us with your knowledge of the "revolving door" you keep referring to. What has Self done to exhibit any sign on treating players like "pieces of meat"????

It's all in this thread bozo. I'm not going to re-type 50 posts and produce a "Why KU is a revolving door for Mickey D's All-Americans for dummies" summary just for you n00b.

Further, your wrong about WSU hitting a pinnacle. They'll be better this year and the recruits Turg and Spinelli are bringing in are better talent wise than the guys who went to the 16. Why do you feel the need to directly compare the WSU to KU? I haven't, I've simply pointed out the excessive turnover rate since Roy left and the fact that the b-ball program (and of course football) violated NCAA rules.

The only thing in the thread "bozo" (good one, by the way) is you berating Self and KU talking about the "revolving door" and "treating his players like meat"...along with your asinine "puppy mill" reference. I asked for examples. I think I've given you logical reasons for each of the KU departures, none if which show Self to be a heartless coach that doesn't care about his players...you've given no one in this thread anything but a good laugh. Thanks for trying.

Now Turg is a Faggie, WSU has a new Marshall in town and KU is still not winning National titles and squeaking by the Valley or losing in the second round. I know you guys want to talk about Jared Allen or Trent but this was good basketball smack. By the way I'm willing to bet anyone heads up WSU will finish better than their Valley pre-season prediction. Anyone?, skipper, braincase, Saul? :)

Ummm....last I checked, KU got to the Elite Eight. While that may not be the ultimate goal of winning a national title, it is a good accomplishment. Remind me again what WSU did this past season. :p

Oregon State dismisses troubled center Giles from team

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Center C.J. Giles was dismissed from the Oregon State team on Monday, interim coach Kevin Mouton's first day on the job.

No reason was given for the decision, but Giles was benched for the Jan. 3 game against Arizona because he was late more than once for practice.

Giles, who played his high school ball in Seattle, read a statement to the Seattle Times over the telephone on Monday. He said Mouton and athletic director Bob De Carolis told him he was off the team because they wanted a fresh start.

"In the past here I have not been perfect, but I have tried really hard and I have gotten things together academically. I have also accepted responsibility when things have not been perfect," Giles said in the statement posted on the newspaper's Web site.

"This came as a shock to me as no one had addressed this with me or let me know that I had done something that would cause me to be released from the team."

The 6-foot-11 Giles played in 10 games for Oregon State (6-12, 0-6 Pac-10), averaging 6.3 points and 5.6 rebounds. Giles began his collegiate career at Kansas, but was dismissed from that team before the 2006-07 season for what coach Bill Self called "a pattern of irresponsible behavior and disrespect for team rules."

Giles did not play for Oregon State until Dec. 8 because of NCAA transfer rules. He started six of his 10 games.

Mouton took over the Beavers late Sunday after the firing of coach Jay John. John tried to recruit Giles when he was in high school and hoped he could get his career back on track in Corvallis.

Indeed. Jiles claims to have gotten his act together, but I guess he didn't get it together enough.
