I know, two blog postings in one day, are you starting to gauge my massive boredom when there's nothing other than June baseball going on?
I'm driving just a little bit ago and I hear on the radio that the University of Kansas has released the following statement:
"Kansas Head Coach Bill Self will be available to speak with the media after Josh Selby has been selected in the NBA Draft. In the event that Josh Selby is not selected, coach Self will be available to speak with the media after the NBA Draft has concluded."
Bill Self must really hate what Josh Selby did to his team last year. Josh Selby was supposed to be the reason that KU won the National Championship in 2011. In October of 2010, I had Gary Parrish on my radio show on 90.7fm KJHK in Lawrence, KS. Parrish said that Selby was the difference, he compared him to John Wall, Tyreke Evans, etc... EVERYBODY was sold on Josh Selby. If Josh had played up to 70% of the hype, then KU would most likely be the National Champion. That would be frustrating to anyone, so I understand.
That said, for Bill Self and KU to give Josh Selby one last F-U moving into the NBA Draft is, in a word, classless. You can tell me, "Wait, they just released a simple statement." You can tell me that, but you would be wrong. Why single out Josh Selby twice in the statement? The University of Kansas and Bill Self did that so that everyone would just accept the fact that Josh Selby would be the final KU player taken in the draft. Why not just make the statement,
"Kansas Head Coach Bill Self will be available to speak with the media after every eligible KU player is taken in the draft."
That is all you need! You need more proof? Bill Self will be in the "green room" of the Morris Twins. This was a calculated shot, and as a KU grad, I am not even a little bit shocked. Never in my life have I seen a more petulant bunch of jackasses than when I came to the University of Kansas. The campus is on the top of a hill, and let me assure you, s--t rolls all the way down that hill.
Think Bill Self is a good guy? Why don't you ask San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher (Hint: He's on my side)
