Kansas' Bill Self Did A Pretty Entertaining Q&A With Fans On Twitter Today

Bill Self is apparently all about interacting with Kansas fans as the Jayhawks prepare to begin their 2014-15 season. 

Last week, Self bought lunch for a ton of Kansas students, taking selfies and posing for a number of pictures during the meal. Today, Self held a fairly entertaining Q&A with Kansas fans on Twitter.

None of Self's answers were really that surprising. It's pretty obvious that he'd want Chalmers - the player who helped Kansas win a national championship with his last-second 3-pointer - taking a final shot. It's a crime that the Jayhawks haven't played at Duke during Self's tenure, though. That's a non-conference game that needs to happen.

Kansas opens its season Nov. 14 against UC Santa Barbara.
