Hmmm... I guess I thought he was still being counted in most people's projections given that he had a year left of eligibility.  

Regardless, a guy who could have had a lot of success but it seemed like every time he was poised to break out he had another injury that put him behind others.

I guess the point is the NCAA doesn't have the ability to do these investigations well and certainly not expediently.  Maybe the easier shift is to give the athlete the benefit of the doubt and let them play/practice until it can be proven that they shouldn't be eligible.  Diallo did nothing wrong but was punished by a slow and inept institution trying to do a job it is not equipped for.

If the NCAA wants to keep a list of shady high schools that might require additional vetting by universities, that's fine.  But they clearly aren't able to carry out their duties as currently constructed so a change is needed.

The issue is now the NCAA has to do all of this crazy investigative work to see if someone is eligible.  Look at the Diallo situation at KU.  He went to school in Mali up until high school he speaks like 3 or 4 languages and yet the NCAA held up his eligibility while it tracked down homework and transcripts from another country.  He had been doing great school work while at KU and yet still was being prevented from playing.  As a result his development and rapport with the team has suffered and isn't playing as much now that he is eligible.  

Check this article for more information on his case and the topic generally: http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/sam-mellinger/article44408022.html

I think some still don't know if they will have to go that route, so it is likely they'll send it and then find out later in the spring that they couldn't get in or qualify or whatever the reason was.

Our punter is ripped and he hasn't even joined the Marotti weight program yet.

Lyle doesn't quite seem like a pure point guard and has been prone to turnovers at times.  If he improves it may not be necessary, but I like having Harris out there more than he has been and if the easiest way of doing that is sending them both out then I am for it.

Also, Kansas has made this work very well with Devonte Graham and Frank Mason.  They are often on the court and are essentially interchangeable.

Not our front 7, especially with Washington supsended and Schutt hurt.  Clemson's DL dominated in a way ours would not have.  Bosa is great, but they were solid across the entire front.

I mean our class is smaller than all of those guys and we have  higher average rating.  It's a great class and 2017 looks like it could be historic.  Your so called realism is not based on reality.

And the comments get dumber.  Hasn't recruited too well recently??? Look at our 2016 and 2017 classes.  Heck last year was 7th and easily best in the Big 10.
