I remember when Mizzou got Brad Smith... siiigh...

I think K-State could capitalize off of a possible all-american more than Mizzou, though. That, and things are different when there's only 5 players involved, instead of 11...

Not to cater to your ridiculous fanboy ego, but Huggins is puting together a damn fine class. When KSU hired him I thought he would bring in some nice recruits but didnt figure he would land one at the top.

Still hardly best class ever.

Best recruiting class ever? (A) It's June, and (B) you've got a long way to go.

Anyways, Memphis is apparently leading for Derrick Rose and Anthony Randolph. That would be quite a nice duo to head what could be an amazing batch of recruits.

Just curious. What is your take on Carney and Williams as pro prospects? . I am a big Rockets fan and Carney seems like he may go around #8 and could potentially fill their need at SG.

Carney has, as someone else once said, "hops out the ass." ROFL

He's an amazing athlete, and a great spot-up shooter. His ballhandling still needs to improve, and he needs to work more on creating his own shot, but he could be a really solid player.

Shawne will be an absolute STEAL for someone if he falls into the 20s. He disappeared from a few games this year, but the potential is absolutely mindblowing.

Let's look a little closer look at what's happened and ask the obvious question:

A top 10 player that top programs like KU, Duke, UNC or UCLA for some reason had no interest in, selects a bottom-feeder school in KSU, sight-unseen with a "talented" coach (who, becasue of his public drunkeness and otherwise unsavory behavior, has been free to recruit for the past year outside the auspices of the NCAA guidelines) that none of the top programs wanted either. That seems logical, doesn't it? Anyone else smell something fishy here??? Maybe the NCAA will.

Why would anyone have recruited Michael Beasely when he commited to UNC-C when he was a Sophmore? Everyone backed off.

I'll admit though, the only reason we got him was because of Dalonte Hill, who Huggins hired from UNC-C. Package deal. You know, kind of like hiring someones Dad to get a recruit?

He did when he first started getting shown on national TV as a sophomore. I think he has matured a lot in the last three years though. He looks like a basketball player, I don't think he looks all that clumsy anymore. He's also a lot more aggressive. He needs to add some weight to his frame but he has the chance to be a monster.

Saul,

Don't let the facts get in the way of your argument.

Chalmers' dad was hired well after Mario signed. Also, I don't recall him ever breaking his verbal to anyone, like Beasley did after Huggy hired Hill away from the school Beasley had already verbally commited to. KSU will get its just desserts from their Thuggy idol, its just a matter of time.

Little doubt KSU will be much, much better....And considering the lack of academic ethics that KSU has traditionally held for football I would say Huggins and his kids will fit in nicely.

Prediction:

20+ win seasons every year

Nobody on scholarship graduates

A handful of players make the police blotter


Huggins ends up puking in the back of a squad car




Question....Is the bball team going to be called the K State Bearcats now or they going to stick with the Wildcat name for sake of tradition?

Higher levels of competition should make your guys better. Even if it doesn't show in the conference when wins are hard to come by, hopefully your team is tuned up from it come tournament time.

This is good for the league and good for Kansas. We need a real rivalry, and the league needs to be stronger for the league to have better postseason success. Huggy used his year off real well. Whether these guys stick around long enough and whether he can continue to recruit kids this highly rated to Manhattan beyond the guys he was able to get to know in his year off remains to be seen. But I'm sure the hope is that getting to the tourney will in itself sell to other recruits as time goes.

Both Mizzou and K-State made good hires, and the rebirth of the bix XII North is gonna be fun to watch...

You think if it came down to a kid with exceptional talent that would commit for 4 years to a superstar talent of Mayo for 1 year that a coach wouldn't go with the 4 year player ?

Damn right he would ........ 4 years over 1 year.

The lone exception , IMHO would be if the team was oh so close to a NC, a Mayo would put them over the hump.

Like I said the lone exception, you are using Keith Langford vs Carmello Anthony. Langford was good,but wasn't the exceptional talent I spoke of. Carmello was a superstar player ( like Mayo ) thst was the missing piece of a team that was oh so close to a NC.......

Would I take him for 1 year......... Yes , only if I was oh so close to a NC that I spoke of.

Would I take him for 1 year if I could take a very talented player for 4 years if I wasn't so close to a NC ? .......... NO

You guys at KSU keep thinking / getting 1 and done players and you will never get to a NC again. You have to have quality players around him that are commited to the program.

Keith Langford was very highly rated coming out of HS. So was Melo.

Getting highly rated talent is never bad. I know you haven't done any research on this topic, but K-State is also in on quite a few 3 and 4 star prospects as well, that will help build that 4 year core of quality players.

Melo was an All-American considering going to NBA.

Langford wasn't close.

however, ROY is crazy to think that someone wouldn't take a 1 year guy.

even if you didn't get a championship, you would bring more credibility to your program. the other ballers would follow, seeing that your school produced a lottery pick

I'd take the talent. BRush was supposed to be gone after 1 year, but he's staying and brings championship hopes back with him.

Exactly.

Langford was exceptional talent. He was HM AA in many publications coming out of HS. He was rated as the 9th best SG in the country. He is the type of player you would want to build with for 4 years.

Melo was a consensus AA, and a possible NBA lottery pick out of HS.

Now, which one would you want on your team? Langford for 4, or Melo for 1? Hmm...

O.J. Mayo, the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2007, told the USC coaching staff and players last week that he would commit to the Trojans, multiple sources told ESPN.com. The 6-foot-4 Mayo, perhaps as recognizable a high school recruiting name as LeBron James and Greg Oden, made the statement during his unofficial recruiting visit last week in Los Angeles. He has yet to make that sentiment public, but could do so this weekend at the Reebok ABCD Camp on the Fairleigh Dickinson campus in Teaneck, N.J.

High school recruits often say one thing to appease a coaching staff, then sign with another school during the fall and spring signing periods. But multiple sources told ESPN.com that the Trojans are awaiting public word from Mayo. Even after he makes an announcement, though, the Trojans aren't guaranteed anything until Mayo signs a national letter of intent with USC. The earliest that can happen is during the November signing period.

NCAA rules forbid college coaches from commenting publicly on commitments until they receive a signed national letter of intent. That said, if Mayo orally commits to USC this weekend -- or anytime before the fall -- he could immediately go down as the most significant recruit in USC basketball history.

Mayo still could consider other alternatives instead of going to college in the fall of 2007. There is a possibility he play professionally overseas for a year or compete in a barnstorming tour with other high-profile players who are prohibited from entering the NBA draft until they are at least 19 years old and one year out of high school. Details of possible moves like this are expected to be explored in September.

Still, those would be unchartered waters. The more traditional approach for Mayo would be to do what Oden did: go to school for at least one year. Oden chose Ohio State and is projected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft if he declares. Mayo, who is still scheduled to finish his high school career at North College Hill in Cincinnati, is a potential No. 1 overall pick in 2008 if he were to declare.

"[Mayo] could change a program and give it instant credibility," said one source. "He sees the big market and knows that he's not too far away from being marketed. [Going to USC] would only help him and he's confident enough to win a national championship."

The assumption for more than a year was that Mayo would go to Cincinnati if Bob Huggins were still employed there, or follow him to wherever he landed, which ended up being Kansas State. Multiple sources told ESPN.com, though, that USC coach Tim Floyd received a phone call in November in which he was told Mayo was interested in joining the Trojans.

Mayo then played in an event in Los Angeles in December, with reports surfacing that he was interested in a West Coast school. The assumption at the time was that it was UCLA, but by December, it had been made clear to USC that it was the Trojans, not the Bruins, who were in the hunt.

Multiple sources said that Mayo wanted to be in a major media market and that he told the USC staff he didn't want to be just another name at a school like Duke or North Carolina. He wanted to win big, go to the NBA and already have been marketed in a media center. Sources also said that Mayo was very aware of the attention USC's back-to-back Heisman winners, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush, received the past two seasons.

"He's a little bit different for a kid his age," a source said.
ESPN.com was unable to reach Mayo for comment.

Mayo was in Los Angeles last Wednesday to Friday. He met with the coaching staff, played with USC's returning players on campus and had a conversation with USC athletic director Mike Garrett. Mayo also met with Floyd for the first time. A source said Floyd has only talked to Mayo a handful of times, during which Mayo has expressed his interest in playing at USC.

That's what makes this even more of a coup for the Trojans, assuming it becomes official. Even though he coached in the NBA at Chicago and New Orleans, Floyd has only had one highly rated freshman in his college career -- Marcus Fizer, while he was at Iowa State.

The timing of Mayo's commitment couldn't come at a better time for the Trojans. USC is still emotionally spent after dealing with the tragic death of freshman point guard Ryan Francis, and also needs to overcome the loss of star shooting guard Gabe Pruitt, who is academically ineligible for the first semester. The Trojans are also opening their new arena, the Galen Center, this fall.

A Mayo commitment may lead to another major coup if teammate and close friend Bill Walker, another top-10 player in the class of 2007, were to follow Mayo to USC. The two have said for the past two years that they would play together in college.

"Me and Bill are still looking at Florida and K-State right now," Mayo said. "But USC is first on my list, and then K-state and Florida."

Mayo said he might make a verbal commitment this week, and then still take recruiting trips after that.

"I'd like to try to get it over with by this week," he said. "I'm still talking it over with my mother and my grandfather. I'm going to take a visit (to Florida) and K-State and make a final decision. A verbal is just a verbal. (USC) is what I like right now, but that could change."

I moved to FL in 1988. I am a fan of all south Florida franchises which originated after my move (Heat, Marlins, Panthers - not Dolphins). I also follow the KC teams (Royals, Chiefs). I am a graduate and grad student at UF - thus the Gators. Both of my parents and my uncle are KU alums so I grew up a JHawks fan.

UF is great. It's a very large school (50,000 students) so there is a lot to do and always something going on. It has great academics and athletics so there is a lot of school pride and alumni support. The weather is great and, yes, many beautiful girls :)

Florida has 7 D-1 football schools. UF, FSU, Miami, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, University of Central Florida, and University of Southern Florida.

UCF is growing and is up-and-coming, but they are not as large as UF. UCF's enrollment in the Fall 2005 was 45,090 and the campus spans 1415 acres.

In 2002 UF had over 48,000 students and that number has grown. We are the 4th largest university by enrollment in the country. Our campus is over 2,000 acres.

Mayo fielded softballs for the next 10 minutes from the handcuffed media, demonstrating a cliché lexicon that's as NBA-ready as his game. With dozens of anxious reporters looking for some kind of seam, any insight into his highly-anticipated decision, questions that strayed too close to the subject of Mayo's recruiting were shot down by the moderator before either interviewee could take a breath.



"Is there anything to gain at ABCD camp for players ranked as high as you?"



"We just came to play hard," Mayo responded. "It's a great camp. It's not about proving yourself. It's about having fun and meeting other guys from across the country."



"Are you looking forward to the on-court rivalry with [highly-regarded point guard] Derrick Rose?"



"He's a great player -- I've got nothing to prove. It's five-on-five out there, not a one-on-one game," Mayo said. "Me and Derrick are both competitors. We both want our teams to win, and that's what it's all about. It's not really about the one-on-one matchups -- it's about the team game, getting everyone better and just playing hard."



"What does mean to remain the No. 1 recruit in the country?"



Mayo: "I really can't control that. All I can do is try to play hard and compete. It's all about winning and trying to focus on the team game."



Reporters in the room couldn't help but feel let down as their colleagues found themselves restricted to such hard-hitters as, "When you're playing in a game, are you ever in awe of yourself?"



With the moderator Rivers issuing a fourth warning to stay on the topic of the afternoon's game, the frustration reached a humorous culmination when a reporter from a Washington, D.C., newspaper took the microphone for the next question:



"O.J., during the game that was just played, were you thinking about USC or Kansas State?"



Rivers, unamused, took that opportunity to close the questioning. And so Mayo's recruiting, a long and winding ordeal that's included more twists than a pretzel factory, lives on another day.

The Ohio high school athletic association has just cleared the way for Bill Walker to become a lottery pick in the 2007 NBA Draft.

Walker, best known as O.J. Mayo's teammate at North College Hill (Ohio) High -- but a legitimate NBA prospect on his own -- was declared ineligible for his senior season on Monday. Basically, the governing body of Ohio high school sports has determined that Walker already has played four years of varsity basketball since completing his eighth grade season. That means Walker, a nomadic sort whose high school background is murky, has met the first half of the NBA's draft-eligible requirements for high school seniors -- which says that a high school senior can enter the draft if it has been a year since his original high school class graduated. The Ohio governing body is essentially stating that Walker's original high school class is the one that graduated in June 2006. The second half of the NBA's draft requirement for Walker is crystal clear. The NBA cannot draft a player who isn't yet 19. Walker will be 19 -- and some media reports say he will be 20 -- in June 2007.

He can't enter the NBA Draft until 2008. Besides that, I don't think he's ready to go Pro. He's a 6'5" small forward that really plays the PF role. He's got a nice shot, but it needs some work.

Bottom Line: Without fighting this thing legally, Bill Walker won't be elligible for the 2007 NBA Draft

TEANECK, N.J. -- O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker, two of the top players in the class of 2007, are going to college. At least for one season.
Sources continue to tell ESPN.com that Mayo, who told the USC staff that he's coming, soon will announce he'll be a Trojan. It was supposed to be at the Reebok ABCD camp, but he wants his mother by his side. Walker, according to multiple sources, likely will choose Kansas State and new coach Bob Huggins.

What the North College Hill (Ohio) pair apparently won't do is go on a barnstorming tour of Europe, Asia and Israel.

Grassroots hoops czar Sonny Vaccaro, most recently of Reebok, has called it off before it even started. He does want the world to know, though, that he had the option available for these two -- and others.

"I had researched the tour and had it ready to be funded by a financial institution, not a sneaker company," Vaccaro said. "We had countries ready to host us."

That's countries, not just club teams. His vision was of a tour during which the elite high school players would train, be housed and fed, and play across the globe as they waited to satisfy the NBA's year-old rule of having to be at least 19 years old and at least one year out of high school to be eligible for the draft.

"It's off, but these kids had alternatives," Vaccaro said.

What has really irritated Vaccaro is the case of Mayo, who will turn 19 in November. Mayo was born on Nov. 5, 1987, so if he goes to college for just one year, the beginning of his first NBA season would come right around his 21st birthday in November 2008.

"No one thought this through that the possibility would be there for someone to be 21 or 22 when they entered the NBA, even after just one year out of high school," Vaccaro said.

Vaccaro wouldn't be against someone challenging the rule on the grounds that he's being denied the right to work. The issue, though, is that Mayo or anyone else could work -- for a club overseas -- and make it a lucrative decision.

Still, the odds are higher that interest in Mayo and Walker would likely be greater in this country than overseas. Just take Saturday night, when Mayo and Walker -- like LeBron James, Sebastian Telfair and others in years past -- were the only two players at the ABCD camp who were hounded for autographs.

"If I were in their shoes and LeBron walked past me, I'd want to touch him and be close to him," Mayo said. "I don't mind. If I were one of those kids, I'd want my book signed, too. This is my last time on the summer circuit, and I want to make sure I'm not forgotten."

Walker said he has seen this on both sides, watching the star and now "being that guy."

Nonetheless, the college game -- and likely USC and Kansas State -- can now rest easily. Mayo and Walker are going to school. Now these schools just have to hope they officially announce soon and honor the commitments in a year.

Final nuggets
• Despite Monday's ruling by the Ohio High School Athletic Association that made Walker ineligible to compete this season -- the OHSAA determined he has already completed his full eight semesters of eligibility -- he should have some options for next season. Prep school is a very possible destination.

LMFAO

Coming from a KU fan, that's pretty damned funny.

The argument is aimed at your team, Program, past coaches, etc. They are all on trial, and nothing is sacred. If Huggins' misgivings are relevant for KSU, then KU's misgivings are relevant, no matter who the Present coach is.

I wanna say that Arkansas team in like or '93 did, but can't be sure of that, plus it was more than a decade ago. I think had Carmelo stayed 'Cuse would have returned their starting 5 in '03-'04

Beasly having second thoughts?

However, the biggest addition on the Panthers watch list is 6'9" 240 pound Michael Beasley of Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, VA. According to the same DC area source, Beasley, one of the top four players in the country, is very interested in the Panthers even though he is currently committed to Kansas State.

"He is going to visit Kansas State and if he doesn't like it, he already told Cox that he will go to Pitt," says the source, who also stated that Cox was hired a day after Beasley committed to Kansas State. "If Cox was hired one day earlier, Beasley may have committed to Pitt. They won the (AAU) National Championship together and are very close."

Beasley has confirmed that the source's information is correct. When asked if he was interested in Pitt, despite being committed to Kansas State, he replied "Yes, I'm interested in Pitt a lot". When asked if it was because of Cox, Beasley simply replied, "Yes". Beasley stated that he was still committed to Kansas State, but said a visit to Manhattan, KS could change that. Beasley says he will visit next month and is unsure if he will visit Pitt if he likes it at Kansas State.

http://pantherrants.blogspot.com/

I know it's just a blog, but it's a blog from a reputable sportswriter (granted, most likely a Pitt homer). Still, once the Beas gets a whiff of the cattle pens from the front door of Bramlage he might start thinking...."eh, I think I'll keep my options open." On the real though, you better hope he's not looking for the big city experience. Manhattan is a wonderful place for a small townsman, but far from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Saully,

Don't you know that's typical Huggins?

He probably stole or embezzled that loot. Then he went to the Ohio Division of Vital Statistics and bribed one of the State Office drones to change Bill Walker's birth certificate so that Walker would not be able to play his senior year, but also be ineligible for the NBA draft. Then he had Donald Little kill the drone.

Huggy then took another portion of the loot and bribed Miles Brand in hopes of *skirting, breaking or sueing to have the rules changed for him.
Still not done, Huggy went to the DA prosecuting *Tyree Evans and offered him free tickets for life (or until Huggs decided he wanted Donald Little to kill him too) in exchange for help in dismissing Evans' part in the rape of a girl so that Evans would be free to roam the KSU campus and rape coeds with impunity.

Finally, Huggs made a deal with Nike, that they would "sponsor" KSU athletics to the tune of 15$ mil. Absolute genious.

This, my friends, is Huggyland.

Beasley quietly one of the best

Friday, July 14, 2006

By ADAM ZAGORIA
HERALD NEWS

A whole lot of hype and hoopla surrounded O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker when the two high school basketball stars took up residence last week at the Reebok ABCD Camp in Hackensack. Michael Beasley has hardly received the same attention even though college scouts and recruiting experts consider him to be among the best of the best in the Class of 2007.

Beasley, a 6-foot-9, 235-pound forward from Frederick, Md., will compete in New Jersey for the second time this week when his AAU team, DC Assault, appears at the Playaz Ball beginning today. The event takes place at Kennedy and Don Bosco High Schools, along with the Rothman Center at Fairleigh Dickinson, before moving later in the day to Basketball City in Manhattan. Beasley's team plays its first game at the Rothman Center today at 12:30.

"All the best teams are going to be there," Beasley said by phone on Thursday. "And the Playaz are going to be there. We've had a little rivalry with them for the past three or four years."

Beasley is a tremendously athletic player who averaged 20.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.5 blocks last season at Oak Hill Academy (Va.). He is the No. 4 ranked player in the nation in the Class of 2007 by rivals.com and No. 5 by scout.com.

And unlike some of his high-profile classmates, who were too busy competing in sneaker camps, Beasley helped the USA Men's U18 team win the FIBA Americas U18 Championship earlier this month in San Antonio. After a day's rest at home, Beasley then picked up and earned the No. 2 ranking at the adidas Superstar Camp outside of Atlanta.

"He would be a top 15 player picked in the NBA Draft in a year," said Mike Byrnes, head coach at The Winchendon (Mass.) School, one of several prep schools in the running for Beasley's services this coming season.

Jeff Goodman, a college basketball analyst at FoxSports.com, polled a dozen college coaches recently as to who was the best player in the Class of 2007. Six different players were named, including Beasley, Mayo and Walker.

The 6-6 Walker was recently declared ineligible by the Ohio High School Athletic Association after an investigation determined he had exhausted his eight semesters of eligibility. He could end up spending a post-graduate year at someplace like Winchendon or The Patterson (N.C.) School.

Beasley, 17, was similarly declared ineligible at Oak Hill, Carmelo Anthony's alma mater, and could also be on the move.

Byrnes -- who also briefly coached former Paterson Catholic and Passaic star Jeremiah King and former Passaic Tech standout Hashim "Big City" Bailey and now coaches Don Bosco's Trevor Harris – said he would love to have Beasley.

"I've talked to Michael about prep schools and about the possibility of him coming to The Winchendon School and Michael has an interest," Byrnes said this week at the Reebok Summer East Classic at FDU. "We have very few beds left on campus. I'm begging my headmaster to save one more bed."

Beasley said he wasn't sure where he would spend the upcoming season.

Just as his prep school situation is up in the air, Beasley's college situation also remains cloudy. He initially committed to Charlotte, but when his basketball mentor, Dalonte West, got a job under Bob Huggins at Kansas State, Beasley switched and committed to Kansas State. There has been talk of a dream recruiting class there featuring Beasley, Mayo and Walker. Mayo said at ABCD that USC was his "first choice," but that he and Walker were also considering Kansas State and Florida.

To complicate matters further, David Cox, Beasley's former AAU coach and longtime friend, was recently named director of basketball operations at Pittsburgh. Reports have surfaced that Beasley might end up at Pitt, and he did not completely deny them.

"It's complicated," Beasley said. "I'm committed to Kansas State but Pittsburgh could be an option."

Despite the confusion surrounding his prep and college options, Beasley was certain about one thing. He wanted to play with USA Basketball this summer, even though other heralded players, such as Kevin Durant, a 6-9 forward from Texas, chose not to. Lance Thomas of St. Benedict's was also on the team.

"If you got a chance to wear the USA name and to play for the best country in the world, you can't pass that up," Beasley said. "It was a great feeling to stand up there with the gold around our necks showing all the countries that we're the best in the world."

K-State not sour on Evans

Weiser will keep eye on prep star who has had legal troubles and will attend Butler County.

By HOWARD RICHMAN

The Kansas City Star

Guard Tyree Evans wanted to play basketball in the state of Kansas. Butler County Community College might not be his first choice. But his first choice might not be a dead issue after all.


Kansas State might be willing to give Evans a shot down the road, Wildcats athletic director Tim Weiser said Friday. Earlier this month, Weiser indicated that Evans, who at the time was facing serious legal issues, wouldn’t be a good fit for K-State.

In the future, Weiser might have a different opinion, especially now that Evans’ future from a legal standpoint has become clearer.

“I certainly wouldn’t want to eliminate the possibility or hope from Tyree’s standpoint that one day he might be a good fit for us,” Weiser said. “I’d have to see evidence that some of the issues I was concerned about are no longer a factor.”

Evans, who said this spring he would play at K-State for coach Bob Huggins, saw that particular option end in mid-July when Weiser indicated there was too much baggage in Evans’ situation for the Wildcats to consider him for their one remaining scholarship.

On Tuesday, there was some resolution to Evans’ legal issues. He reached a plea agreement in Worcester, Mass., on charges of statutory rape. Evans pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of assault and battery and received two years of probation.

So Evans, who averaged 29.5 points as a senior in Richmond, Va., before going to a prep school in Winchendon, Mass., will play in 2006-07 for coach Randy Smithson at Butler County in El Dorado, Kan.

Smithson said when he learned K-State would not pursue Evans, he phoned Huggins to get a contact number for him. When Huggins still coached Cincinnati, he received an oral commitment from Evans, but Evans never played there because of grades.

“I had to make a call (to Huggins) and say, ‘Guys, what’s your feeling on him?’ Bob probably wouldn’t have given his number out to just anybody. He cares about this kid, whether he goes to K-State or not,” said Smithson, who coached Herb Jones before he went to play at Cincinnati for Huggins. “We’re excited to give him a second chance.”

Smithson said he expects Evans will play only one season at Butler County before moving on. Could the destination be K-State?

“I would be surprised if he (Evans) does everything we ask of him if they didn’t recruit him,” Smithson said. “I know where this kid stands. He’s got a lot of allegiance to Bob Huggins.”

Leak. Tebow will be great and he has done an absolutely fantastic job when put in the game in certain packages (run-heavy). Great change of pace. However, Leak leads the country in TD passes and is the leader of the offense. It isn't, and shouldn't, even be a question. The reports of people booing Leak coming in for Tebow against UCF is completely overblown. I've been to every game thus far (home & away) and yes, some idiots booed. However, as soon as the masses realized what they were booing, the boos were completely drowned out by cheers. Now, everyone cheers whenever Leak runs out onto the field.

Leak is the man this year. Tebow will be the man for the next 2-3 years.

Considering that Zook had some of the highest rated recruiting classes during his tenure here, I wouldn't call it rebuilding. We had the talent and had the tools. Zook would go out and get gourmet ingredients without having the slightest knowledge of how to cook. That's not rebuilding, it's poor coaching and disappointment.

GRCOAT has the power to change lives.

Let's do recap GRCOAT:

1. Walker, who conveniently forgot he had already gone to High School for 4 years and was DQ'd, is now trying to get on campus to play for a year at KSU.

1. Walker, who conveniently forgot he had already gone to High School for 4 years and was DQ'd, is now trying to get on campus to play for a year at KSU.

2. Pope, who most KSU fans said was too rough a kid for even Thuggy to consider, due to on-court fights etc. is now mysteriously "back in the fold".

3. OJ Mayo has taken such a beating in the press for being a thug, that his college options are shrinking faster than Rosie O'Donnels' thongs.

He's been admitted, but I don't think he has enrolled. If that is the case, he won't be able to play until after the 1st semester is complete, which would be the Kennesaw St Game on 12-17.

Same here, but that's fine by me. I think that will give him ample time to prepare for Big XII play.

I've seen him play w/o Mayo. They don't play all their AAU games together.

That part is BS. Walker WANTS to play with Beasely, and vice versa. Unless he absolutely blows up in the B12 season, he won't be going pro. NFW. Matter of fact, he has some work to do before he even thinks about the NBA. He needs to polish his shot, and work on his exterior D.

He'll probably be a hybrid 2/3 in the NBA, whereas, he's a definite 3 and maybe even a small 4 when we go to a small lineup at KSU.

Rick Reilly

Congratulations, Kansas State University! You've just purchased Famous College Coaches Model NX9873, Bob Huggins.

WAIVER: Before you open your used Bob Huggins, please read the directions CAREFULLY. We cannot be responsible for damage to your integrity, reputation or standing in the community.

GUARANTEE: Your used Bob Huggins is guaranteed to win games, not graduate players. He operates best at a zero graduation rate. In fact, in four of nine reporting years at Cincinnati his graduation rate was 0.0 -- meaning Huggins graduated as many people as the local cemetery. He insists his rates were low because he relied on junior college transfers, who don't count in the stats when they graduate, and because many of his players turned pro. Still, in 16 years at Cincinnati, Huggins graduated only 28% of the players who arrived as freshmen. You could do better than that teaching calculus by smoke signal.

SETTINGS: Do not adjust the volume on your used Bob Huggins. He has only one setting. During games he screams at his players, and they scream back at him. It's like dinner at Ozzy Osbourne's house. Your fans will love it. They will be able to hear much of his halftime speech without leaving their seats.

CARE AND CLEANING: Do not attempt to clean your used Bob Huggins with abrasive cleansers or industrial products. In fact, don't try to clean your used Bob Huggins at all. The stain will not wash off. He's about as black a hat as you can find in college basketball. He even wears black. His temper is factory-set to "quick" and his ethics to "slick," and he'll sign a cottonmouth if he thinks he can rebound.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Hire extra cashiers. Your used Bob Huggins will win many games and win them quicker than you can tote them up. He's the best defensive coach in the land. K-State won six Big 12 games last year? Hah! Huggins will pass that by Groundhog Day. You'll sell out of seats, jerseys and nachos. Alumni donations will double. You'll be on Dick Vitale's speed-dial. With Dick's lung capacity, that's not always a good thing.

LIMITED WARRANTY: No wins guaranteed after March 15. Only one of Huggins's last nine Cincinnati teams made it past the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. You said you wanted to go to the dance. You didn't say you wanted to stay.

NOTE TO USERS: Do not store your used Bob Huggins near any flammable material, such as the NCAA rule book. In '98 his Bearcats program got two years probation and lost three scholarships for "lack of institutional control." Also, keep your university's ethics professors away from him. We all know what you did here. You sold your soul for wins. It's like marrying Anna Nicole Smith. She ain't moving in to cook.

TROUBLESHOOTING: Your used Bob Huggins already made you look a little sleazy before you hired him. After getting canned by Cincinnati in August 2005, he had all of last season to basically recruit star players, even though he didn't know what school he was recruiting them for. You're going to love it there, as soon as I figure out where "there" is. Right after Hugs signed with Kansas State, he got a verbal commitment from star forward Michael Beasley, one of the top high school players in the class of '07. (Probably didn't hurt that Huggy Bear hired Beasley's old AAU coach as one of his assistants.)

HELPFUL TIP: Have plenty of good lawyers around. Your used Bob Huggins often recruits the kind of player reserved for Scared Straight! documentaries. In his time at Cincinnati, 19 of his players or recruits were charged with crimes ranging from shoplifting to assault. One player punched a horse. Huggins's Thug-o-meter broke years ago. If you hold a reunion of ex-Huggins players now in the NBA, it will draw such moral beacons as San Antonio's Nick (the Gangsta Hooper) Van Exel, who once attacked a ref; Denver's Kenyon Martin, who was suspended for insubordination during last season's playoffs; and Milwaukee's Ruben Patterson, a registered sex offender.

SAFETY WARNING: Use caution when allowing your used Bob Huggins to take the wheel of your program. In fact, use caution when allowing him to take the wheel of anything. He's already had one DUI conviction.

REPLACEMENT PARTS: These are not covered by the manufacturer on your used Bob Huggins. The man is so intense he had a heart attack four years ago, at 49, and was back at work within two weeks. (Defibrillator sold separately.)

EMERGENCY SHUT-OFF: After a few seasons you will want to get rid of your used Bob Huggins the way Quasimodo wanted to get rid of his hump. This will not be cheap. It cost Cincinnati president Nancy Zimpher $3 million to fire him. Why'd she do it? Because, she said, "character counts."

Not at Kansas State. Accountants do.

Enjoy!

What fact that Reilly stated was inaccurate? The DUI? The graduation rate? The police records of his players? The NCAA penalties levied for Lack of Institutional Control?

It's cool if you want to win at all costs but at least be honest about it.
