Wondering Why No One Comes to Study Barnes' Offense

This quote set me to wondering what Rick Barnes does in the offseason?Losing most of his team to graduation what is going on with what's left?We know Tod Wright is working on strength and conditioning and Barnes and his assitants are trying to recruit a new team for next year.One great thing about the summer is the return to campus by many of our former players, like T. J. Ford and Durant. I have never heard of anyone studying our program although some have come in to take a look at the facilities and see what Wright has done in the weight room but no one seems to want to immulate any thing else. . "When I first went there I saw how organized everything was, how seamless everything was in its execution, and I kind of sat back in my chair and said, That's why he's been so successful the last 31 years - look at this practice, look at this meeting, look how this stuff goes." (said about Duke and Coach K) Maybe Barnes needs to scout his own program and compare it to some of those that have success in the NCAAs year after year.Why can Butler get to the Final Four with less talent than UT has?How does Izzo have success year after year?What is Self doing at Kansas that can't be done on the 40 Acres? It would seem that everything is in place for UT to contend for a title.The team has achieved very high rankings in the polls only to fold in the tournament. How long can Barnes ride his one trip to the Final Four?The Aggies,Baylor and KSU are improveing and Kansas stays at a high level.It would seem that Barnes has used his Mulligan and must make another tournament run.As they say "win or go home".
