    You waited almost 16 years to the day, to make this post. That’s some serious patience.

    As far as lurkers go, you’re right up there. Posting anything close to the thruth, not so much.

    So he IS gay... I thought so

    I guess the phlock is going w Bill's first explanation :" Billy's mom is in town, and he wants to spend some quality time w her so he will miss a game or 2" nk, he really said this

    and if that's not it, why is he setting ?

    Who is this moron and why hasn't he killed himself yet

    I imagine Catilac as Jon Hamm in 30 Rock with two hooks for hands.

    My favorite part is the Range Rover part, like do your research it's a Charger.

    Charger?

    Sure, I heard that early on.

    We all also heard that "his mom is in town, so he's going to miss some time" from Self. So lets be real, I think we can all agree that there's some serious bullsh!t being thrown out by ku on this....whatever it is

    well sure, unless you've got a 16 year old daughter that somehow ends up in the BB dorms at McCarthy or a daughter on the womens team who car gets bashed in by a player and you want some sort of justice ...

    and that's just LAST year

    Something has happened. He has been out a dozen games. And there still is no word. 12 games for driving a girlfriends car. The crime is how long this whole thing has taken. KU to NCAA-"Scholarship player driving his girlfriends car. What the penaly?" NCAA-"He sits out x amount of games". That's seems fairly simple to a sane person-which means THE NCAA IS NOT A WELL INSTITUTION

    I have faith KU will slither out of this jam just like UNCheat did with their cheating..... then KU fans can go back to pretending that all these incidents are just horrible coincidences and KU is the home of angels..

    Yep, he didn't travel with the team because mommy was in town. He sat out the first game because of missing class/rules violations, then the car, then mommy...

    I am not some tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, but I have a very hard time believing this is about a late model charger. With everything that has gone down this year with the FBI and such, I have to think this is something much bigger.

    But what can you say? It seems like these incidents are a yearly thing at KU and nothing much comes of it but some missed games, no matter whose daughter is in the dorms or getting kicked in the face.

    “I don't think that I've ever had a situation where I've dealt with this like I have since we've been here,” Self said. “And it has nothing to do with Kansas. It has everything to do with the system."

    Billy practiced with us Friday morning,” the statement from Self began. “And after practice I learned that his mother was coming to (Lawrence) and would have little opportunity to spend time with Billy due to the Miami trip. I recommended Billy stay back so he and his mom could have some time together considering they have not seen each other in person in a while. Billy will be at our next practice and will be with the team when we go to Kansas City next week. Billy not making the trip has nothing to do with anything other than being able to spend some time with his mother.”

    Meanwhile, the sycophantic 9 year olds at the LJWorld and the KC Star lick it up like lap dogs.

    Bill must think he is talking to first graders if he thinks people believe that a basketball player at Kansas missed a game because his mom was in town

    Technically he just didn't travel with the team due to his mom being in town. He didn't play because of the "car."

    Actually, I would be disgusted if last years roles were reversed. I would find it very hard to root for players hitting women but whatever. Self suspended Vick for what, 2 games for kicking a woman in the face, and that wasn't even the reason he gave the public.

    Taking money is one thing. Even though it is a dumb move for a kid about to make millions to do so, I can sympathize with some of these kids who have never had anything. Preston however looked like he stepped right out of a GQ magazine at the Champions Classic and Bowen was wearing a GD Burberry shirt on national TV yesterday denying knowing anything about the $100K he is accused of receiving.

    Not a fan of abuse either but there’s nothing I can do about it. I’m still gonna cheer for KU to win though.

    Who’s Bowen?

    Be very careful about what you think you know about the Vick situation or the alleged statutory situation at the dorm. Which was dismissed last week incidentally.

    Did something happen in the Vick situation other than the reports that he repeatedly hit and kicked a woman in the face that you would like to share? What exactly do I need to be careful about?

    Yes, the DA decided there wasn't enough evidence to press charges in the rape case. Hopefully the young lady are her parents are as happy with the outcome as KU, the KU basketball team, and its fans.

    If you google "Lagerald Vick Suspended" every single article that pulls up whether it is from EPSN, CBS, or your buddies at the Star says he hit her numerous times and kicked her in the face. It isn't just one article. Do you not think that the university coming out and saying that he likely committed domestic violence and that they recommend he be placed on probation for 2 years is evidence enough? Are all of these articles and KU wrong? If so, I would love to know what happened there and a few other misunderstandings the last few years.

    "Vick allegedly punched the woman in the arm "more than once" and also kicked her in the face. Vick was never changed with a crime, but the university found Vick likely committed domestic violence.

    It was recommended that Vick be placed on school probation for two years. As the Star notes, it remains unclear if head coach Bill Self followed through with the punishment."

    7 of slowwalker’s 9 posts have been ITT, yet he signed up over 2 years ago. Another great lurker, or another troll account?

    Hmmmm. Allegedly. I wonder if there was more to the story being that he didn’t get into trouble.

    Yep, the KC Star sure behaved like lapdogs last year didn't they? LOL. You wouldn't even know half the rumors if not for their unprofessional and relentless attack.

    Not to mention KU's own campus paper throwing them under the bus this year. Lapdogs, am I right?

    Also, keep in mind that if everything in Lawrence were swept under the rug, no one would have ever known about the Preston situation. Logic. Try it sometime.

    No, clearly Self just favored Vick over the likes of JR Giddens and CJ Giles, who were promptly dismissed for being involved in violent situations. Hell, based on the reports, I'm not sure Giddens even did anything wrong. He got attacked by some thugs. Pretty damn good player too. One that Self clearly would have wanted to keep on the roster.

    Well, to be fair, I never said anything about UK. Kentucky certainly isn’t a cesspool. Nothing but respect for your tradition, championships, and blue blood status. #1 in all time win totals is awesome, and to be commended.

    Rupp Rafters on the other hand......
