For me it all goes back to T.J. Pugh, who Roy Williams recruited to play for Kansas. Pugh, a dominating force at Omaha Creighton Prep, would have played immediately with Rodney, and the two would have spent four years completely terrorizing the Missouri Valley Conference. Instead, Pugh went to Kansas and had a solid role-playing career as a defensive stopper off the bench. -Bluejay Basketball Thursday, November 25, 2004
