Bill Self wraps up basketball boot camp one day early. Bill Self wrapped up KU's basketball boot camp a day early because, he says, the players did so well.

Lots of interest in the KU AD job. I've heard from folks and via recent news reports that there's quite a bit of interest in the Kansas athletic director's job. Some rumors have been going around but no one has come up with any sort of definitive short list of the candidates. Those associated with KU have said the interest has been high and they hope to have the search completed by early 2011. Lew Perkins may have had some questionable actions but he turned the financial parts of that athletic program completely around and I think it's among the elite jobs in the country.
