Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 7.11.13
Football coaches who head teams that have no problem amassing yards but find themselves one foot short of a complete offense tend to scour soccer fields for help. Listen to Kansas University walk-on kicker Austin Barone and see if you don’t think coaches should also be scouting local golf courses.
... But Kansas’ Charlie Weis is conducting an interesting experiment that could pay immediate dividends this season. He has basically assembled a juco all-star team in an attempt to upgrade last year’s widespread deficiencies, signing 17 such transfers last winter. If Weis’ plan works, the Jayhawks should be much more competitive in the Big 12. If it doesn’t … well, ask former Kansas State coach Ron Prince.
“We have a pretty good group of guys,” Selby told ESPN Los Angeles, referring to a Lakers roster that includes Chris Douglas-Roberts and Robert Sacre. “We have a great coaching staff (led by Laker assistant Dan D’Antoni) that’s willing to teach you the game. I think this is an opportunity for me to showcase my talents and better myself.”
“The thing I’ll miss most about that rivalry is the coaches going at one another,” he said, laughing and adding, “I think Coach (Bill) Self and Coach (Frank) Haith both seem to be likeable and not really mad at each other.”
Turns out, the biggest problem isn't what Henderson does when he's on the court. It's what he spends his time doing off it.
With coach Andy Enfield newly installed at USC, and former Kansas assistant Joe Dooley hired to replace him, the biggest question going forward is whether FGCU, having tasted the spotlight, can sustain the exposure and momentum in coming seasons. It won't be easy, but as long as the Eagles keep finding freaky athletes like Terrell, Dunk City will at the very least live up to its name.
So for the past few years, those of us who miss the glory days of college hoops gaming ... have had little to do but watch in intense jealousy as EA Sports rolls out spiffy new football titles each and every August.
"It's really nice. It just says SEC on it."
