Crossing my fingers and toes, praying, lying prostate to the basketball gods, layering on 7 KU winner t-shirts, sacrificing a Puke, ConTucky, and TarHole bobblehead at the altar, doing a Native American blue-chip recruitment (returnee) dance...

Did I miss anything? :-)

After 9 PM, no follow up specifying what he was tweeting about.

Could be because grad transfer Rayjon Tucker is now following the Jayhawks, but shows nothing in his Twitter account regarding following Auburn, who was considered the front runner before Tucker’s KU visit this past weekend.

Could be because he and Q got invitations to work out with the Atlanta Hawks.

Could be because it’s dead week, and he’s ready for finals next week.

What it DOESN’T seem to be about is his appeal, as I’d think we’d have heard something today/tonight if it was.

Only he — and maybe his fellow tweeting teammates (Lightfoot, Teahan and Dotson last I checked) — knows for sure,

It's now after 7PM on Friday May 10, and the NCAA has yet to release the appeal decision. That is three calendar weeks, but arguably not 21 work days.1

From Silvio's tweets in the last few days, including one tonight (now deleted I'm told, but nothing is ever truly lost in cyberspace if you or your friends know enough), he seems certain he will be playing for KU next season.



Here's hoping this is not going to end in another NCAA dishpan full of water in his face.



1 Every time I read an NCAA bylaw or policy stating a recommended time frame (never called a "deadline", I've noted), I assume -- unless the language specifically indicates otherwise -- that "7 days" or "1 week" means 7 work (week) days, or at least 9 calendar days (5 weekdays, 2 weekend days and 2 more weekdays minimum).

That makes "3 weeks" actually equal to 21 work (week) days. In Silvio's case, as his appeal was received on Thursday April 18, making Friday April 19 Day 1, 21 work (week) days works out to next Friday, May 17.

Again, love to see them publish the results sooner and prove me wrong.
