Kuath made some amazing plays that left TV commentators (and me) thoroughly impressed. And though he improved year by year, he was undeniably inconsistent, especially on the offensive side, but he definitely contributed on defense.. I'd love to see him on the team for one more year, but that seems to be not in the cards.

Dude was completely lost at both ends of the court 90% of the time. I wish him nothing but the best in his future ventures but we can do a lot better.

agree with most of what has been said about KK but he played hard in games down the stretch and in a bad matchup (for him) with Timme he kept after it....earned my respect.

wish him the best. for the Sooners, onwards and upwards.

What a strange path he took. He announced he was going pro even before Coach Kruger retired, and he would surely earn a decent paycheck overseas. Instead he returns to college, but not at OU.

Best guess is he is in search for more playing time, but will his wishes be granted? Stay tuned.

There most likely wasn't a spot for him to come back to if Moser wants to use the last two spots on guards. right now we have 5 forwards/centers.

I think if he was returning to OU, he'd have done it before now, in which case there would still have been available scholarships. I wonder if maybe he was shown some writing on a wall? I can't recall if Coach Moser ever said anything about trying to convince him to return.

I think he gets a raw deal in the eyes of some of posters -- his stats stack up against some other reserves who still have fan support -- but I wish him well at Marquette. He was inconsistent, but his highlights were often memorable.

He certainly needed more consistency and probably maturity. He wasn't going to make much overseas but could have paid the bills. A good year will give him a chance at a better league.

something that is a side effect of the portal the second a player enters the old school does not have to let them come back ..

yep. I'm in favor of the portal but also know that actions have consequences. Players will have to live with those consequences. He said he was leaving while Kruger was still the coach. Moser has planned this whole time for him to be gone and acted accordingly. So now he has no spot when he decides to return to school and has to go elsewhere.

Look out, the message board deputy is back again, writing tickets for unapproved negativity and lobbing personal insults at posters. He's a *real* fan, unlike the rest of us.

I wish Kur would have stayed - a 6’10 shot blocker to rotate with Groves and Chargois in the paint would have been really handy. Good luck to him at Marquette.

He is a very nice young man. Certainly not very reliable though in his responsibilities.

At no point has KK ever dominated a basketball game in the post. Never. He had a few very brief stretches in games where he had a positive impact— especially blocking shots off the ball. But these were literally like 2-3 minute stretches in a handful of games here and there. I guess if you want to say a guy “dominated” for 90 seconds that might be accurate.

I have no doubt he is a nice young man. Probably a good teammate, hard worker. I too, wish him nothing but the best in the future and I hope he enjoyed his time in Norman. But in terms of basketball, losing him is a total non-issue. He was an inconsistent big man off the bench with minimal overall impact. Dime a dozen.

Is KK destined to be the next Je’lon Hornbeak—a player who decides on his own to transfer, only to become a “what if he had stayed” legend of sorts? Is he one of those players whose career at OU somehow takes on a life of its own that doesn’t necessarily fit the player he was before he left?

For the record, I was a big Kur Kuath fan. I was familiar with his background and his story, and I wanted him to do well, still do for that matter. But, let’s be honest here. Kur was an athletic big man with potential, nothing more. His greatest strength was in blocking and changing shots. That’s it. He really wasn’t all that good in other areas of the game.

I’m one of a number of posters who thought he should have played more, even if it meant sharing the floor with Brady. Problem is, LK didn’t see it that way. That still doesn’t change the fact that if not for a special concession due to Covid, his college career would be over right now, and his final stats at OU would read 5.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg and 1.5 blocks per game.

Nothing would please me more than to see KK have a great season at Marquette that would serve as a launching point to a professional career somewhere. I wish him well in whatever he chooses to do!
