Bill Self has a near-immaculate sense of how to win, be charismatic and choose the right certain something to give his appearance a confident look.

Dancing is another thing altogether. But the Kansas coach has figured out how to fund-raise through the form of boogie, which has been successful for a number of years. Bill's Basketball Boogie is a fundraising event that the Kansas coach puts on for the benefit of his Assists Foundation. So Self is preparing and promoting another Boogie to help raise money. Last year's promotion was all good and fun, but this year he got members of Kansas' team (not featured: Josh Selby) to don costumes and channel their inner BeeGee to help promote the event. Doing charity work is always nice, but getting Thomas Robinson to dress up like a refugee from Soul Train is a gift beyond measure.

The result was this. The look Self flashes at the 35-second mark is a keeper, one recycled from footage of last year's promotional video. This year's event takes place June 4 in Kansas City, and also in the late 1970's.

KU coach Bill gets down with his bad Self - again

Coach Self has done this before and I admire his willingness to look totally foolish for charity. For the record Jeff Withey is head and shoulders above all the rest! Good clean fun for a good cause.

By the way is there anybody who doesn't love the way those kids naturally move their bodies?
