Kansas coach Bill Self reads fans' mean tweets on air

BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

Kansas head coach Bill Self only follows two accounts on Twitter: the official Kansas athletics account and the one for his foundation. So, chances are he isn't seeing your thoughts on his team or his coaching.

Friday morning, Self appeared on 'Fescoe in the Morning” on 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City. During his segment he read some of the negative tweets directed at him and the Jayhawks during Monday night's 85-72 loss to Iowa State. It can be heard here beginning at the 23:30 mark:

"I really don't give a crap about making everybody happy all the time," Self later stated in the interview. "It's more fun when everybody is happy, but that's not my job. My job is try to put us in the best position, to have the best team we can."

Depending on how Saturday's non-conference showdown with Kentucky goes, there could be a whole new batch of angry tweets for Self to read next week.
