From Matt Tait at KUSports.com: link
When asked Friday morning before practice if there was any news in the status of De Sousa and/or Preston, KU coach Bill Self said simply, "I think it's going to be a great Friday. TGIF. We've been waiting for Friday all week. Check with me at 5 o'clock. Who knows?"


Less than 4 hours to 5PM as I post this.

BTW, in case you may not have noted it, if not approved today neither will be approved until some date after the Morgantown game on Monday, which is MLK Day.

I, too, have been checking multiple times a day. I don't think Self would have said what he did if he wasn't holding onto some information. Probably has to let the NCAA or KU draft an "official statement" before he can say anything, but it seems clear that he a.) knows, and b.) is pleased with the outcome.

Dare to dream. I'm (verrrry) cautiously optimistic.




Oh, and the NCAA are still on my sh-- list.

This one goes to 11 12 13!

It’s 5:48 PM CT and no news is not good news.

A lot of good it did to be so thorough in Preston's case before turning it over to the NCAA. We are going on a month now.

Actually just 9 working days for the NCAA.

KU gave them Preston's case the day they started their Christmas break.
They reopened for business on Tues Jan 2.
Today is Fri Jan 12.
4 workdays last week, 5 workdays this week.
And you know the NCAA folks are going to double check some of the things the KU lawyers have presented in their case.

So, much as I have disliked the NCAA ever since 1988/91, I am not ready to say KU's work was wasted.

I will say that I think KU's lawyers should have made every effort to get Preston's case in the week before the NCAA offices closed down for their annual Christmas break. You cannot convince me that KU lawyers were totally in the dark about the upcoming NCAA office closure.

Ever hear of "Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part."?
Very common when it comes to organizational interactions, even more so between organizations as compared to within organizations.

Just sayin'...:whistle:
