For Pete's Sake

KU made a ‘Bill Self for President’ campaign video

A common lament ahead of the November presidential election has been the candidates themselves. It seems many are unhappy with the Democratic and Republican nominees.

Perhaps that’s why Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has thrown his hat into the ring. Not really, of course, but KU did produce a campaign video for Self that was shown Saturday at “Late Night in the Phog.”

Self shared the reasons he should be elected:

Proven winner: The Jayhawks’ 12 straight Big 12 titles.

Home defense: KU’s success at Allen Fieldhouse.

Success with global issues: Self coached a KU-led team to gold at the World University Games in 2015.

Job creation: The Jayhawks have had a number of NBA draft picks.

Here is the video:
