If you have to do something shady, do it right out in the open so it doesn't seem bad. Seems to be a popular way to go these days.It's brilliant, actually. With the apology, the AD plays both sides of the street: putting on an event that will make a difference in some of these recruitments and then officially coming off as virtuous.
What a load. Should be fired.Pat Forde: Bill Self, Kansas fall 'victim' to Snoop Dogg's 'acrobatic dancers' and money cannons
Shed a tear and say a prayer for Kansas, everyone. The school has been through so much.
Nobody has been victimized by unscrupulous characters, bad business dealings and overzealous investigators like the Jayhawks. Now, add rogue rappers to the list of perpetrators.
Did you see what that duplicitous Snoop Dogg did Friday night at “Late Night in the Phog” at historic Allen Fieldhouse? Did you see the way his road crew somehow snuck stripper poles past everyone and set them up on the court? Did you see how the scantily dressed women scaled them and swung around, legs spread wider than a Kansas wheat field? Did you see Mr. Dogg take a money cannon and fire fake $100 bills — featuring a picture of his face and marijuana leaves — around the place, including in the direction of the Kansas players?
Whoops, said Kansas athletic director Jeff Long.
"We made it clear to the entertainers' manager that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show,” Long said. “I take full responsibility for not understanding what acrobatic dancers are in today’s entertainment world and offer my apology to anyone who was offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening.”
“Acrobatic dancers” at a Snoop Dogg show. Poles set up on-court. Can’t believe this didn’t turn out to be the Bolshoi Ballet.
Hold a vigil for Golly-Gee Jeff Long, conned by the manager who scripted the soft-core porn show instead of the clean show.
HOW could Kansas have seen this coming? When it signed up Snoop — who has done prison time, but did beat a murder rap — as its entertainment for the annual “Late Night” event start to basketball season, who could have foreseen that this might not be an event approved by Disney, or the NCAA?
“I didn’t know there was going to be anything like that,” said coach Bill Self, the active college sports leader in I Didn’t Know statements.
We are off to a good start. 3 of the last 4 national champions are non blue bloods ! Problem is that K is now going after 3-4 year players that those schools are after to mix with his OAD players. Good news is he is done in 4 years. Right now UNC and Duke are knocking it out of the park on the mix and match.F*ck the blue bloods. Time for new blood.
What an Azzhole.A reporter asked Self about the incident. Self talked around the question and then said to the reporter, "How is that for answering your frickin' question." I really can't imagine our coach or many coaches responding with such arrogance, fortunately. KU coach seems to be appropriately named.
But watching a high wire act is slightly more family friendly than a group of strippers....I didn't watch the full video of the dancers but here is the thing...I bring my kids to the circus every year and the high wire gals they have going at a family event are wearing more revealing clothing than those ladies were. I'm not saying that what they did was the right move, but I've seen way worse at family events with tons of children around.
Hard to agree when the high wire act gals are wearing thongs and those strippers were wearing shorts...The perv in me loves the circus...the dad in me hates it.But watching a high wire act is slightly more family friendly than a group of strippers....
