Having Fun With Bill Self’s (Fake) Hair!

Bill Self wears a hairpiece and it is one of the biggest marvels in college basketball. It is remarkable. It is a piece of art, unlike anything the artificial hair world has ever known. The detail, the precision, the way the fake follicles embrace Self’s bare scalp; it is all exceptional craftsmanship and nearly completely hidden to the naked eye.

But I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it up close and personal, from no more than a foot away, and you have to believe me, world: Bill Self’s hair is a lie. And if there is any chance that I am a bad judge of a good hair piece, my claim is supported by a Kansas booster, who confirmed to me that Self paid top dollar for a new, surgically-installed wig.

So why does this matter, you ask? There are bald people everywhere, so who cares? It happens to the best of us, right?

Well, yes. There is nothing funny about going bald. But when you’re Bill Self and you are bald and you pay lots of money to not be bald and your Kansas Jayhawks are coming to Rupp Arena to play Kentucky, you’re going to get made fun of on KentuckySportsRadio.com. That’s just how it works around here. Sorry I’m not sorry. I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t tug on that rug.

Now let’s get to it with new wig options for Bill Self:

    Good stuff! I would have added one with John Robic’s hair (although the Trump one resembles it).

    The one with K’s hair makes him resemble Tom Jurich.

    He needs some glasses to fully pull off the Crean look.

    I have to say Cal’s hair looks best on him.

    Can we add one with Will Ferrell’s hair from Zoolander? Maybe a glorious Joe Dirt mullet? The possibilities are endless. This is fun! Like a game my kids used to play!

    Drew, fess up. Is that not Kevin Stallings’ hair (or lack thereof) in the first picture?

    This is the kind of goofball humor that KSR used to specialize in. Awesome job!
