Yep. A top star at OU (and we've had some in recent years) truly stands out in a way he might not necessarily at ku.

I don't disagree and this has to be a selling point for LK and company, however, Norman does not have 12K people in the stands every day and you are NOT the big dog on campus, which is appealing to many 18-year old kids. I have no idea about Bryce's personality, but if he wants the brightest spotlight, one could argue KU would provide that - both on and off the court.

I remember a story about Blake Griffin not even being recognized at a McDonalds on the Turner Turnpike. Do you think any KU basketball player at a McDonalds in KC would not be recognized?

Not saying OU's fans are bad, but basketball plays second fiddle to football - always will.

I would recruit Bryce the way OU recruits football players - we will win championships with or without you - do you want to be a part of winning with us?

Now all that being said, Bryce would, obviously, be a better player in Norman

He would be a star in Norman. I’m sure he would be great elsewhere too but harder to be the star at KU. I can’t imagine him being an aggie but crazier things have happened.

I see your point -- basketball is undeniably king at ku as football is in Norman -- but I'm sure OU football players go unrecognized at fast food joints all the time. And I'm confident Buddy, Blake and Trae each got all the attention they could have ever wanted during their time in Norman.

Football is a different animal. They were helmets. When you go to a basketball game you see their faces. For example, would recognize Aaron Donald - maybe the best defensive player in the NFL or an average NBA player, say Ricky Rubio?

It should. I think Bill’s hair says a lot about him.

If I see him hanging around KC, I will put on a KU shirt and be a total jerk to him. Let him know what to expect if he signs with the bad guys.

Buddy. Some KU fans, in hindsight, like to pretend that KU didn't "really" want him. Those fans are wrong.

Yes and no. He was a low priority for them. Bill Self has publicly said that one of his biggest regrets was not pursuing Buddy harder. Since Buddy was not a national top-100 recruit, that would be someone OU SHOULD be able to win going up against the Blue Bloods.

Yep. KU didn't go after Buddy hard until very late in the process, and even then, it was more as roster filler/bench depth. Meaning, they already had a good class, and were just rounding out the roster after missing on some other guys. They didn't press Buddy very hard throughout most of the recruiting process. That's pretty well known.

That’s how I remember it as well, I think even Buddy has mentioned that KU came on late.
