I wouldn't look to Andy Katz for tactical insight or high-level critical thinking, I think he understands this about himself as his ESPN blog (Insider) reads as a transcription of what people have said to him (no matter how ridiculous) in the last day or so. From today's blog (Insider):
Kansas coach Bill Self is still confident that Brandon Rush can return to play in games by Dec. 1 after having ACL surgery. He's hoping to have him practicing by Nov. 1.
It may be plausible. It may or may not be true, but I'm confident that Bill Self said that to Andy Katz.
