Kansas to host Goodwin during alumni game

When Archie Goodwin listed the five schools who would get an official visit from him today, Kansas was included.  He’ll visit Lawrence September 24.  But you know what’s interesting about that?  He’ll be in town to check out campus and the “Legends of the Phog” event at Phog Allen Fieldhouse, which is an alumni game featuring Paul Pierce and other former Jayhawk stars.  Even better, former Jayhawk coaches Larry Brown and Ted Owens will coach the teams.  So what makes this different thank the UK event?  The U and the K are flipped.  Other than that, it’s pretty much the same.

Here are they players confirmed to attend:

Cole Aldrich
Mario Chalmers
Nick Collison
Xavier Henry
Darnell Jackson
Marcus Morris
Markieff Morris
Greg Ostertag
Paul Pierce
Scot Pollard
Darnell Valentine

    The only thing that should be in bold here is Greg Ostertag

    If you want to put things into perspective. We will have twice as many show up for a practice of a bunch of unproven guys, than they will for an actuall game of “legends” vs “legends”. Heck, even Drake shows up for our practices. Yeah, we are talkin about practice.

    I think the difference is that this is an alumni game, where the UK legends were playing the Dominican National Team. And that mattered . . . for some reason. I think if it was all UK alum, UK could have sponsored it and Joe B could have coached.

    There hasn’t been a worst list for an alumni game since Louisville played in that Bullitt County gym in front of a non-sell out crowd.

    So you got a bunch of geriactrics and a few NBA rookies gonna play a pickup game? I bet they don’t sell 23,500 tickets like we did. I bet the collective age of our players was half of what theirs will be too. Not impressed at all….carry on.

    The only other thing “different”: the talent level…was Scooter Barry not available?

    I think the main issue is that the game does not feature prospective recruits on one of the teams, that and the former UK players were being payed…

    This means nothing on the recruiting front…we have Goodwin allll but signed, sealed and delivered…hes ours folks.

    Darnell Valintine is older than dirt. Should be a great game.

    Yeah, ‘hawk fans around here actually looked at the roster for this game and said how the hell are selby and henry considered legends. I couldn’t help but laugh.

    There is a guy on the KU Sports blog bashing how UK dropped the ball in failing to promote our Legends event. http://www2.kusports.com/news/2011/aug/22/legends-phog-exhibition-set-sept-24/?mens_basketball#comments
