Absolutely TONS of stuff for you all to sort through today!

BILL SELF ENTERS HALL OF FAME

Although Bill Self won’t be officially inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame until tonight, the festivities in Massachusetts have already begun.

The reality of the accomplishment didn’t hit him until he arrived in Springfield, MA.

Self calls the experience of seeing his name listed alongside Phog Allen and other greats “humbling.”

Bill Self’s engraving says “Kansas University” on it. Uh oh. The Hall has promised to fix the “mistake.”

Wayne Simien recalls that when Bill Self first got to campus, he was able to earn the trust of the players quickly.

KANSAS FOOTBALL VS CMU

After blowing a route on the first play of the game, Ben Johnson learned from that mistake and roasted the SEMO defense on a similar play later in the game.

Kansas experimented with a bigger defensive front against SEMO, at times putting Daniel Wise at DE, and Clint Bowen was pleased with the results.

Per Doug Meacham, Daylon Charlot was held back by injuries in fall camp and is having to climb back up the depth chart.

As of six years ago, new Kansas placekicker Gabriel Rui had never kicked a football.
