Wellman: “We have to rely upon what the schools tell us. We don't have a CIA operation here where we can go in the backdoor and find out information that they are not giving us. So we do rely upon the school's truthfulness with us and we believe they do tell us the truth. Sometimes it doesn't pan out the way they predict. But they believe they do their best to give us the very best diagnosis. The diagnosis of an injury can change from day-to-day, as well. That could have very well been the case in the situation that you refer to. So we will be in close contact with Kansas and any other team that has an injured player through this week.”
When you judge Kansas with him versus without him, is it truly a matter of their record?
Wellman: “I can assure you in any situation whether it regards an injury or an overall evaluation of a team, the committee not only looks at the victory or the one-loss record, we look at how the team played, who they played, where they played that particular team. So it is a very deep evaluation of a team that goes way beyond whether they won or lost that particular game.”
