Bill Self Says Mock Drafts Are Ridiculous and Don’t Mean Anything

A lot of fans and players use mock drafts as a guide to see where certain prospects are projected. They’re fun to check because there’s constant change weekly. On the down side, mock drafts can corrupt the minds of players. For example, Kelly Oubre Jr. was a highly touted prospect out of high school, but he’s been a major disappointment thus far at Kansas. Kelly is having...

College Basketball: Kansas rebounds from early failure and moves in the right direction

What a difference three weeks make. When Kansas fell to Kentucky by 32 points over three weeks ago, and the Wildcats blocked as many shot attempts as the Jayhawks saw go through the net, panic for this reloaded Kansas squad set in. However, victories over Rhode Island, Tennessee and Florida at home; over Michigan State on a neutral floor; and at Georgetown this past Wednesday have...

Kansas coach Bill Self saw in one game just how bad and how good his Jayhawks can be. The Jayhawks (6-1) moved back into AP Top 10 on Monday, three days after an impressive 71-65 comeback victory over Florida. ''I learned how we can look obviously when we're not focused and prepared to play, and basically how slow we can look because they dominated us with their speed in the first...

Post-game Awards: Rider

The No. 11 Jayhawks didn’t have a pretty start in the first two games of the season. After a 30-point drubbing by Kentucky, it was clear Bill Self was going to whip his players into shape before they headed to Florida for the Orlando Classic. The first 20 minutes of last night’s Kansas game was exactly what Bill Self wanted to see from his players. Kansas lead at half, 51-22...

Bill Self On Inconsistent Starting Lineups: “I Have A Hard Time Starting Guys Who Are Late To Tutoring”

Kansas’ highly-touted freshmen were expected to help lead the Jayhawks to yet another Big 12 title this season, but so far Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre Jr. have combined for one start, and are only averaging a bit over 25 minutes per game combined. In addition, KU has had a different starting line-up every night. When asked about the inconsistency, Bill Self said that part of...

Bill Self wishes his water was vodka after blowout loss to Kentucky

No. 1 Kentucky manhandled No. 5 Kansas Tuesday night, 72-40. Coincentally, vodka is about 40-percent alcohol. The drubbing was the worst (margin-wise) loss suffered by a Bill Self-coach Kansas team in his 11-plus seasons at the helm. No wonder he was looking for something a little stronger in his water bottle facing the press after the game. Humor is the best medicine, but many have...
