Well I suppose I'll come out of exile and start getting back into the swing of things.  Actually it was more a matter of not having the time or access while I was away on business.  I'll have at least a couple posts related to the basketball season and the good news, I think, is that Spring football starts this Friday so we have a new distraction coming our way.

Self: KU needs 'great' recruiting class | CJOnline.com

Painter will wait to make decision between MU, Purdue - KansasCity.com
I guess I'd be surprised but this would be a great hire for Missouri. I think he'd make them competitive and obviously he'd be around for a long while. Now that doesn't mean I think they'll beat Bill Self anytime soon on a regular basis.
