The good part is we don't have to worry about it. "In Bill we trust". He knows what he is doing.

I will definitely trust him until he lays down another back to back Bucknell/Bradley. But I don't think that will ever happen again. Not with his system and players.

We are honestly ahead of where I thought we would be at this time. Both Collins and Aldrich and the freshman are better than I thought they would be with the exception of Quintrell Thomas and Releford (barely).

I think Canada helped.

So what gives? I cant imagine that Reed and Morningstar are better than Releford, Appleton and Thomas?

Something is not adding up....

Why? Because they're white? :shake:

He is going to be sick... Taylor is a special player....

Gottlieb is much more informative as a color than Dookie V

Gottlieb did alright despite his normal underlying tone of dislike for KU.

No because of how they play on the court.

He doesn't deserve to start? Look. We don't see the practices but there is obviously something going on with Releford having a complete game. Morningstar plays D effectively, shoots well enough, and has as much hustle as anyone on the court. The effort was clear on that play he chased the ball-carrier when they had the fast break and got a blocked shot a game or two ago. Give Self the benefit of the doubt.

Morningstar is VERY slow off the dribble and can't keep up with the quicker guards. He got owned in the Cuse game.

And will get destroyed during conference play....

I like Morningstar, but at this point in the season, I want to see Releford, Thomas and Appleton getting some valuable minutes as well...

No, no, no. I didn't mean last night. I actually thought he was very fair to KU last night. I mean in his past commentaries on ESPN or wherever. You could always feel a little of that hatred for KU in what he said. I don't think he ever got over that whole putting his shorts on backwards at Allen Fieldhouse.

Thomas and Appleton are not ready. They should clearly be behind Morningstar and Reed.

Releford, on the other hand, has looked great in the little PT he has received. Perhaps he's not practicing well? Maybe his D isn't up to snuff?

Morningstar can only play effective D agaisnt bad teams, and his hustle didn't help him much agaisnt Syracuse last week.

Who is the best on-the-ball defender on KU? Collins, right? He got his shit pushed in by Flynn the entire second half. I guess he sucks against good competition too?

He certainly sucked agaisnt Flynn. But Flynn is one of the top guards in the country, IMO.

I think Releford's defense and rebounding are not that great yet. That would be the biggest reason, IMO, as to why he is not starting. He will get there eventually, though. The kid looks like a fantastic athlete, for sure.

Mario Little stood near midcourt in a dress shirt and slacks, chatting with his Kansas University basketball teammates as they stretched before Friday’s home game against Coppin State.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound transfer out of Chipola (Fla.) Community College has remained involved despite not being able to play in the Jayhawks’ first five games because of a stress fracture in his lower left leg.

“I’ve been watching, observing, learning,” said Little. He played in KU’s three exhibition games in Canada and an intrasquad scrimmage at the Oct. 15 Late Night in the Phog but has been shut down since late October. “I try to say a word of encouragement, give some knowledge to the (Morris) twins, anybody, when I can,” Little added.

Last year’s top-rated junior college player said it’s been tough missing so much time.

“It’s new to me. I’ve never been out this long,” said Little. “The toughest thing is watching warmups because I want to play. Physically it (toughest thing) is getting to class. There are a lot of hills around here. Crutchin’ up the hills is difficult,” added Little, ordered to keep all weight off his left leg for a couple weeks, necessitating some uncomfortable trips to class.

Little — he’s been able to ride the stationary bike and work out in the pool — will be X-rayed on Thursday. He hopes to be cleared to practice then.

“Hopefully UMass (Dec. 13), but I don’t know if I’ll be in shape,” Little said, asked the date of his return. “Or maybe Temple (Dec. 20).

“Whenever I do suit up, I’ll try to help Cole (Aldrich) and the twins out and get some rebounds. Maybe help us out offensively, get another perimeter guy in there, hopefully bring a little more toughness to the team.

“We’ve been doing well,” he added. KU is off to a 4-1 start entering Monday’s 8 p.m. home game against Kent State.

“We had them down, we just couldn’t put our foot on their throat,” he said of KU’s only loss — an 89-81 overtime decision to Syracuse last Tuesday. “We had them down but couldn’t keep ‘em down.”

Little’s spirits are not down.

“The coaches and players keep me positive. It’s tough watching and not be able to help but I’ll be back. It’s good,” Little said.

If little is good enough to get significant minutes KU could challenge for the Big 12 Championship.
