    I'm hoping Manning eventually wants to win, and recognizes his weakness in that area, and shores it up. But that may be hoping too much.

    You act as though staffs are never constructed this way. Our situation is a prime example of when it is called for. Coaches try to build teams with different skill sets - stars, shooters, rebounders, defensive specialists, etc. I wish DM built his coaching staff with the same philosophy.

    True.

    He does not recognize his weaknesses. He has had the same ones since be arrived. They were partially masked by the "talent" [name redacted] had amassed under ronnie's leadership.

    How true. DM is a tad on the arrogant side.

    That is harsh in describing Danny. He started at the bottom of Self's Kansas staff and worked his way up.

    I would see it more of he doesn't know what he doesn't know. If you never saw your mentor engage in much in game coaching, you just don't know much about what it is or how it is done.

    Dunning-Kruger has been an issue for our last two coaches.

    Coach doesn't know in-game coaching, but let's not be harsh!

    Danny has got to start getting his players to want to play. He needs to get pissed off and inspire the team. To me this is a bigger issue than the in game play calling. He looks scared on the sideline, needs to be a leader, get vocal and not accept anything less than 100% effort on the court.

    It might be a communication problem, but his degree from Kansas is in communications.

    Sometimes you just don't know what you don't know. The "unknown unknown"

    I understand. I can just also understand coaches/schools not wanting to be in the position of telling that kid they aren't going to approve his backing out of the commitment in order to go somewhere else. It is a bad look for the school to get in the way of a kid doing something he feels is best for his future.

    Charles Bassey committed to Western Kentucky today. Not only did he commit he also reclassified to 2018 and will join them next year. Was #3 in 2019 and we had offered although he had been linked to Western Kentucky for a while now. Reading the quotes from the commitment are quite funny.

    “Relationship with the coaches, good fans, and a good atmosphere,” said Bassey. “I want a good school with good education.” (What? Its effin' Western Kentucky! Good school? lol Good education? lol Fanbase? Atmosphere? I can't believe they have anything special there. This kid was sold a bill of goods.)

    Wonder if he will do the Mitchell Robinson special and leave school before the season starts? The amount of bad decisions these 5-stars make, it has to be all the sketchy individuals that get involved in recruiting that have a financial interest in the outcome.
