Take time to finish a book, hit the Lawrence Public Library to return it and pick up the first Inspector Morse DVD, come home and trim and mow the yard in preparation for the weekend, then sit down with a Bass ale (or two) and my iPhone on a Friday afternoon to check in on wazzup widda Jayhawks and waddaifind?

Jalen Wilson: looks like he will be announcing his choice this Tuesday morning on ESPN’s Get Up! Now I’m sure you agree with me that the vibe from that information is *all* wrong after the BS his buddy RJ Hampton pulled. However, keeping in mind that (1) growing up he was a big fan of the Jayhawks (loved the MMs) and that (2) KU was his second choice until Beilein left for the NBA *and* that (3) new Michigan coach Juwan Howard never got the chance to meet with Jalen, you sorta gotta like KU’s chances. I know that all the gurus — and the Rivals writer for the tarred ones’ site — are projecting Keep U.

But, but you ask, why should that make me title this post “Freaky Friday”?

Fair question.

By itself, Wilson’s announcement does not. But this was the kicker —

Former Iowa grad transfer SG Isaiah Moss, who committed to Arkansas 3 weeks ago after KU did not make him an offer, decommitted today and is back on the board... and word is his destination is Mount Oread!
Here’s a good recap of what is happening and what Isaiah can bring to the mix.

So... after the Hampton fiasco, what else has happened to change Self’s mind about Moss? Perhaps he is not so sure the KU 2020 SG target Kyree Walker will be able to reclassify to 2019 in time to join KU in December? Or that Walker would even pick KU?

Inquiring minds want to know!

3 rides left.
Need trey shooters.
Moss is good (42%, better each season)
Have read Wilson is okay from 3.
Add Project (Process?) Josaphat Bilau and prep for Late Night!

NB: Jeff Goodman says if KU lands both Wilson and Moss he will be moving the Jayhawks ahead of Michigan St for preseason #1.

Fingers crossed, my fellow C&B feathered friends!

The ESPN early morning stuff came from... who knows?

Sooo much bs flying around, lotsa folks posting trying to be funny, trying to troll, trying just to be ornery pains in the posterior.

Here's the hard scuttlebutt straight from the horse's twitter account --


,,,everyone who has been with me on my journey. ???? #NoTalking

Here's hoping he's a Jayhawk!

And that Isaiah Moss is joining with him!

Fingers crossed...:) :unsure: :dry: :silly: :blink: :pinch: :whistle:
