David Fontana: The Washington Lawyer Nominee
The Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Wednesday was the confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee for President Barack Obama's latest nominee to the D.C. Circuit, Sri Srinivasan. Central casting could not have created a better person for President Obama to nominate than Srinivasan. It has been widely reported by now that Srinivasan has an unusually bipartisan pedigree and list of supporters. It also does not hurt that, as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said earlier this month, "[h]e will be, when confirmed, the first South Asian circuit court judge in history." Nor does it hurt that Srinivasan grew up in Kansas playing high school basketball with none other than Danny Manning, one of the greatest college basketball players of his time. To put it simply: if the Obama Administration created a judicial nominations computer, even the computer could not have scientifically engineered a better nominee. Srinivasan is a unique candidate on paper, and his stellar performance before the Senate Ju ...

Kansas Star Announces Huge Decision
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- The hardest decision of Ben McLemore's life turned out to be no question at all. Kansas coach Bill Self made sure of it. The talented guard announced Tuesday that he will enter the NBA draft after perhaps the most successful season by a freshman in the school's proud basketball history. And just in case he thought twice about passing up professional riches, Self was ready to shove him out the door. "Ben kept telling us in February, `Don't worry about getting anybody else. I'm coming back,'" Self recalled. "I said, `Yeah, right. You want to make a public announcement?' ... If he told me he wanted to come back, I would have told him, `We need to look at this again.'" That's because McLemore's stock couldn't be much higher. The second-team All-American is expected to be a lottery pick in June after breaking the Jayhawks' freshman scoring record held by Danny Manning. McLemore averaged nearly 16 points for a team that went 31-6 and won a sha ...

Breaking Down The Bracket
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Drop the pen. Everybody knows no ink makes contact with a bracket sheet until Monday night at the earliest. Until it's deadline time, pencils are preferred. It's tempting to make big decisions about your picks while you're still waiting for the fourth region to be unveiled. Don't. In the next 10, 12 hours you will hear so many nuggets of information and reasons to change your mind that you will, over and over. That, folks, is real March Madness. To add to your confusion, here a few thoughts and tips about the 2013 bracket. ___ There weren't any really fervent arguments when the bracket was revealed. Gonzaga being the fourth No. 1 seed caused a ripple of controversy because it revived and an old argument: BCS conference vs. the mid-majors. If the Bulldogs weren't a No. 1, Miami probably would have gotten it. The last of the at-large selections again weren't full of emotion or indignation. Again, it was BCS vs. mid-majors with La Salle and Middle Tenn ...

Jayhawks Coach Signs New Contract
Huffington Post - over 4 years
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Bill Self could be roaming the sideline at Allen Fieldhouse well into the next decade. The Kansas basketball coach agreed to a restructured contract Friday that extends through the 2021-22 season and includes a raise to $3.857 million per year. Self's previous deal, worth $3.376 million annually, would have run through June 2018. Self is coming off his second appearance with Kansas in the Final Four. He led the Jayhawks to the 2008 national title and lost to Kentucky in the championship game in April. "I know there are a lot of great jobs out there, but I certainly don't think it takes long to call roll for the best of the best, and I'm fortunate to have one of those," Self said. "I can't imagine myself coaching anywhere else as long as the people at Kansas want me to be here." Self's new contract includes bonus provisions of $50,000 for conference regular-season titles, $25,000 for winning the conference tournament, $100,000 for earning AP ...

Terry Lyons: '84 to '92: Memories From Inside the Dream Team
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
The twin-propeller airplane was the first flight out from LaGuardia Airport in New York to Providence, Rhode Island. My destination was the Providence Civic Center, site of the very first in a series of pre-Olympic tune-up games between the 1984 Men's Olympic Basketball team and a group of National Basketball Association stars thrown together in each city leading up to the opening ceremonies of the Los Angeles Olympics. Upon arrival at the small arena in downtown Providence, I dropped my bags in the locker room designated for the NBA stars, and John Bagley, a prominent Boston College shooting guard and then-starter for the Cleveland Cavaliers, shouted out, "Hey, what size d'you wear?" I wore size 11, larger than the average 20-something male, but tiny in terms of the needs of most NBA stars. Bagley wore 15s, and he grabbed my cheap pair of PONYs and squeezed his 'big dogs' inside as best he could. He was ready. As I counted some 9-10 NBA stars scattered around the ...

Predictions for Robinson and Taylor in the NBA Draft
Kansan - almost 5 years
The NBA Draft isn’t until Thursday, June 28, but scouts already have a pretty good idea of the prospects who could work best with their team. Junior forward Thomas Robinson and senior guard Tyshawn Taylor are the two Jayhawks in this season’s draft. Let’s analyze some strengths and weakness for each player that could weigh into decisions on draft night. Thomas Robinson Height: 6-foot-10 (generous, according to coach Bill Self among others) Weight: 237 pounds Strengths- His greatest strength is, well, his strength. Robinson is one of the strongest, if not the strongest player in the draft. You can’t say the same for automatic No. 1 pick Anthony Davis of Kentucky. Robinson’s strength will help prevent severe rebounding regression as he goes from the Big 12 to the NBA. It could also create easy scores, especially against the plethora of lazy, defenseless backup forwards that litter the league. Last season, Robinson could only succeed by avoiding foul trouble. Because he ...

The Absolute Worst Sports Moves in Atlanta History
Opposing Views - almost 5 years
By Michael Collins It can be tough being a fan in the city of Atlanta...really tough.  It's been said that Atlanta is "Losersville" (Sports Illustrated),  "The Worst Sports Town in America" (ESPN's Rob Parker) and a "Turrible place for teams" (Charles Barkley).  I will never concede that the fans in Atlanta are bad, but let's face it...there have been a lot of "turrible" moves made by some of the teams in regards to trades, contracts, and draft picks.  Here are the ones that stand out as some of the worst moves in Atlanta Sports History, in chronological order. 1977: "The Ted Manages to Lose One" - Ted Turner was known as one of the most hands-on owners in baseball, and in 1977 he took that to a new level.  He said, "Managing isn't that difficult; you just have to score more runs than the other guy.", so he sent manager Dave Bristol on a "scouting trip", and took over in the dugout for one game (a loss).  He was then told by t ...

Jarrod Uthoff: Memories of Big Eight basketball
NewsOK.com Blogs - almost 5 years
Jarrod Uthoff, the Wisconsin basketball player who wants to transfer and was at the center of a firestorm when Badger coach Bo Ryan gave Uthoff a mile-long list of schools Wisconsin wouldn’t approve, made me think of Big Eight basketball. That’s right, Big Eight. Uthoff, a high school star in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is a cousin of former Iowa State center Dean Uthoff. Only old-timers will remember Uthoff — a raw-boned, 6-foot-11 center who led the Big Eight in rebounding four straight years, 1977 through 1980. Those were not glory years for the Cyclones. Those were the four seasons Iowa State was coached by Lynn Nance. The four years between Ken Trickey (who went 13-40 in two seasons) and Johnny Orr (who became a Cyclone icon). In those four seasons, Iowa State went 8-19, 14-13, 11-16, 11-16. So in no way were those the salad days of Cyclone hoops. But Uthoff was a rock inside. He averaged double digit points and rebounds every season except for his 9.0 rebounds as a senior. His care ...

Tulsa G Jordan Clarkson granted release, but Texas not yet approved

Tulsa G Jordan Clarkson granted release, but Texas not yet approved After weeks of rumors, Tulsa guard Jordan Clarkson is now former Tulsa guard Jordan Clarkson after being granted his release from the school. The team's leading scorer last season, Clarkson does not yet have a release from Tulsa to attend Texas, as Tulsa has not approved several teams on his list, with the Longhorns being one of them. Why would Tulsa and Danny Manning want to keep Clarkson from attending Texas? Besides the simple fact that they can, there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason.

A night of recognition to finish a successful season
Kansan - almost 5 years
Bill Self stood in front of the audience to honor the 2011-2012 basketball team. While the Kansas basketball awards ceremony was a celebration, coach Self led a somber moment at the Holiday Inn Holidome in Lawrence Monday night. “This may be the last time we’re all together,” Self acknowledged. Self said that Manning’s 1988 team has never fully been together since its championship season ended. He said the championship winning 2008 team has never had been in the same room again, either. And for the 2011-2012 Jayhawks, it’s likely that all of the players, managers, coaches and staff members will never all be in the same room at the same time again. But for the most part, Monday night was a review of the Jayhawks’ championship run that will leave the team forever recognized with a banner in Allen Fieldhouse. And a player who will soon gain specific recognition in Allen Fieldhouse, Thomas Robinson, got his opportunity to speak and thank the fans in attendance for the support t ...

Norm Roberts returns to Kansas as an assistant coach
Kansan - almost 5 years
Bill Self announced the hiring of Florida’s assistant and former St. Johns’ head coach Norm Roberts to his staff Monday. Roberts worked under Self at four schools in nine seasons and spent one season at Kansas as an assistant coach in 2003-2004. Roberts is the father of sophomore guard Niko Roberts. Norm was the head coach at St. Johns from 2004-2010 where he compiled a record of 81-101. He spent last season as an assistant at the University of Florida. “This wasn’t an easy decision,” Roberts said. “Billy Donovan has been really, really good to me. I would consider him one of the top five coaches in America and I learned a tremendous amount being here with Billy and his staff. Leaving here, I feel I’m a better coach and a better person to have worked at Florida.” The position on the Kansas staff was open after Danny Manning accepted the head coaching job at Tulsa last month. Roberts said he got the OK from Niko before making the decision. He also said his wife Pascale is cl ...

Bears lose Woodberry, juco recruit
News-Leader - almost 5 years
Missouri State’s basketball team will be looking for a new assistant coach and power forward for next season’s team. Six-year Bears assistant Steve Woodberry has accepted an assistant’s job at Tulsa for new coach Danny Manning.
