Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 5.19.11

As if you really needed a links post today.  You know what happened and of course we know what's supposed to happen today and all in all it isn't great news for Kansas.

Jayhawks go 1-1-1 on D-Day |
Sure would be nice to move to 2-1 although it seems more likely that we'll be 1-2.

DeAndre Daniels Saga Drags On |
Interesting take on the situation seems DeAndre wants Texas maybe and Dad wants Kansas. Now Kansas was in this exact situation with McClemore but the player was the one wanting Kansas while the parent wanted Missouri. At the time Kansas fans everywhere said let the player decide and he ultimately did. If story here is true I hope DeAndre picks the program he TRULY wants to be a part of. If it's a back and forth thing and dad convinces him KU is right then ok. I just hope Dad doesn't force it and I honestly can't see that happening when all is said and done.

DeAndre Daniels delays decision until Thursday morning |
So this is supposed to happen huh?

Selby Buzz

Transition Game: 10 Sleepers In The Draft Who Will Excel In The NBA | Dime Magazine ( : Daily NBA News, NBA Trades, NBA Rumors, Basketball Videos, Sneakers
Selby on the list of sleepers and the belief that Bill Self's system is limiting one and dones continues to gain steam. I think this is a bad thing when we talk about recruiting in the future.

Speaking of Selby, remember how elated we were when he committed?  Not saying anything bad about him, just that things aren't always so life and death with recruiting.  Sometimes it's a little over-hyped

This Seems BIG...maybe?
