Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 12.11.13

A somewhat-depressed look around the interwebs.

That game was brutal last night.  I keep seeing flashes, but only after the team is so far down that a comeback becomes extremely unlikely. I keep telling myself that this will set us up for the conference season as the team learns to handle all this adversity on the road, but I'm starting to lose hope.

I apologize for getting the poll up so late last night, but I definitely wanted to get it up before the game.  Also, Weird Wednesday is coming later today.

“To get outscored 18-0 on points off turnovers? If we could have just got a 35-second call every time and they had to take the ball out of bounds we would have had a chance maybe to be in the game. That’s been our Achille's heel all year. We are not a real skilled team yet. We pass the ball miserably. We don’t pass the ball well at all.

“Listen, Bill is going to have a really, really good team,” Donovan said. “It’s obviously early. When you look at 6-3 and think, ‘Oh my god,’ the reality of it is, I get excited when coaching a team with a huge ceiling, and there may not be another team in the country that has as good of a ceiling as they do.”

“The problem with us right now is we are the only school in America that didn’t play any home games for a month ... in a BCS Conference. That’s my fault. The schedule doesn’t lend itself to getting confidence by winning some games where you don’t have to play great. A lot of it is confidence as much as anything else.”

“What Andrew did, he competed,” Self said. “He scored points, but he got 11 rebounds and we’ve been on his butt about doing that. And he made shots, but even some of the shots he made, I’m glad he made them and all that stuff, but that’s not what I’m glad that he did. I just thought he was more aggressive competing, which was good.”
