I wasn't worried about it last year - why would I be worried about it this year?

If anything, it is highly entertaining to see the KU fans jerk each other off at the prospect of Huggins pulling a "Roy", and now I get WVU fans to screw with. I get tired of razzing the same old KU, MU and NU fans..this is new blood. I'm excited!

It could always happen.

I bet its 50,000 times easier to recruit over on the east coast to WVU than it would to be having players come to Manhattan.

And it's his alma mater.

UNC is the ONLY job Roy would leave Kansas for. He's stated that many many times.

Well according to them they did turn Huggy down once, so lets see if they come calling again. Should make for an interesting couple of days or weeks...

I could careless one way or another, if it wasnt for Saul or Bill, I wouldnt even notice that KSU actually had a basketball team..

Were not talking about IOWA, didn't you just hire away Butlers coach?

Besides, I am just harassing Bill and Saul about it.. Huggy isnt going anywhere, but it is funny to watch all the talk about him...

That talk plants a seed of doubt in KSU fans thoughts, watching them get a little nervous is pretty fun...

Also no need to bash them about not making the tourney. That was a Hose job by the NCAA, if there ever has been one.

I just don't understand Jayhawk fans spending so much time and energy on KSU.

All we ever here is how superior KU is to KSU. If you REALLY believed that, you wouldn't give KSU fans the time of day.

So should the presence of Rick Barnes, Bobby Knight and Billy G...

Bobby Huggins is good for the conference. Yeah someday, KSU is going to finally win a game at Allen West... Hell Saul has already purchased Final Four tickets for next year...

"If you REALLY believed that, you wouldn't give KSU fans the time of day."
What? We not allowed to razz our in-state rivals and friends that are KSU fans? Hell all we here are none stop bagging on us for our so called tourney chokes when we are usually the only team in the BIG 12 left playing..

Its all fair game...

Huggins is bringing some much needed attitude to the Big 12... Do I really want to see him leave? Honestly NO, I dont... But if he leaves, I will pile on just like KSU fan did when Roy left for UNC... Just part of the fun about being rivals.

ROFL. Are you serious?

There isn't a fanbase in the country with a bigger inferiority complex than the that of the Kansas State Wildcats. They want so badly to be relevant in the minds of KU fans that...well...it's kind of embarrassing. Saul is exhibit A, if you've ever seen his work over on the KU Scout affiliate.

All that said...Huggins isn't going anywhere. The fans at KSU are itching for a return to national prominence, and they've shown they don't care who Huggy recruits to get them there. He's already a god in Manhattan, and all they've got to show for it is an NIT performance. He's got the best player in the country coming in, and between he, Evans (He just held the girl down! Give him a chance!), and Walker they should be pretty salty. Especially considering how badly the Big 12 North blows ass, outside of the Jayhawks.

He'd be a fool to leave. WVU will come calling again, further on down the road, after he's established himself among the top 25 coaches in the country.

It will get very competative soon. Huggy will get some great athletes to KSU, they will be studs and most likely of low moral character, but that is what makes the rivaly that much better.

I really liked that Walker (Mr. Popcorn) kid. He seems to have a good head and a strong game. Lets just hope his knees hold out. Mr Beasley will not be able to carry the whole team as a freshman...

KSU fans aren't the only fans with the complex, hell, every school/team has their hot buttons. KU fans were on edge upon the mention of the NCAA 1st round losses the last two years, KSU has their issues, MU has theirs. The trick as a rival fan is prodding enough to have fun with it but not going over the line (assuming you care to ultimately have a friendly relationship with said rival fan).

Ku fans just are what they are.

I've never seen an entire fanbase that wants soooooo badly to be Duke. They rag on commentators : "Dukie V" (never mind they tried to buy his love by giving him a wooden toucan. Too f'ing funny.) And Billy pACCker. Who if he doesn't talk of them like Dave "WOW" Armstrong, they gnash their teeth and keegle their collective vaginal muscle demanding that love, while screaming (during this year's NCAA tourney) pACCker must be a Duke alum the way he kisses their ass" Never mind that Packer is a Wake Forest grad. Just very low Bball IQ.

They stomp their collective feet when, as a #1 seed, they have to play the #2 seed in an arena that is 6 hours away from the #2 seed's campus. "It's not fair", they cry. But it's okay when their team plays a regional final in Kansas City. Or St. Louis. On 6 different occasions That's different. "It's not in the same state, at least".(chiefsfan1987) A very compelling argument. For a fanbase that suffers from Down's Syndrome BBIQ.


And after losing (most certainly at the hands of the referees or the commentators), they decry "They hit off balance, buzzer beating three's" and "That team fouled us but the ref's never called it all night". Or the best one: We missed 12 layups. No 14. No 18." The other team didn't win. The other team got lucky.

Not obsessed at all.. I just like the friendly smack talk back and forth... This is what KSU fans wanted when they hired Huggy. They wanted the chance to compete and talk a little trash..

Now they are acting totally shocked that we some of us are poking at them..

Didnt you want it to be a rivaly agian?

KSU fans have such a complex that everyone is picking on them, which is far from the truth..

I always wanted it to be a rivaly.

Huggs' silence is the most telling thing of all. If there wasn't at least consideration, you would have heard from him by now. He and his assistants are on lockdown.

That said, you would think there would have be consideration on his part, at the very least.

Ku fans just are what they are.

I've never seen an entire fanbase that wants soooooo badly to be Duke. They rag on commentators : "Dukie V" (never mind they tried to buy his love by giving him a wooden toucan. Too f'ing funny.) And Billy pACCker. Who if he doesn't talk of them like Dave "WOW" Armstrong, they gnash their teeth and keegle their collective vaginal muscle demanding that love, while screaming (during this year's NCAA tourney) pACCker must be a Duke alum the way he kisses their ass" Never mind that Packer is a Wake Forest grad. Just very low Bball IQ.

They stomp their collective feet when, as a #1 seed, they have to play the #2 seed in an arena that is 6 hours away from the #2 seed's campus. "It's not fair", they cry. But it's okay when their team plays a regional final in Kansas City. Or St. Louis. On 6 different occasions That's different. "It's not in the same state, at least".(chiefsfan1987) A very compelling argument. For a fanbase that suffers from Down's Syndrome BBIQ.


And after losing (most certainly at the hands of the referees or the commentators), they decry "They hit off balance, buzzer beating three's" and "That team fouled us but the ref's never called it all night". Or the best one: We missed 12 layups. No 14. No 18." The other team didn't win. The other team got lucky. And with the help of God and the referees and the combined hatred of Billy pACCker and Dukie V, and the NCAA selection committee and east/west (take your pick) bias, they all teamed up against us". It wasn't fair.

And finally, this is what happens when a fanbase gets caught up in loving ESPN's Scott Van Pelt after he attends a game in Phog Fieldhouse:

He's in Cincy. He went there for Opening Day. I'm sure he's enjoying all the speculation, and will wait to get his raise before making a public statement.

Until about 6 hours ago there was nothing TO say. Beilein hadn't jumped ship, and nobody with any class or sense is going to start accepting or rejecting a job opening that doesn't even exist yet. And as I said, Bob's living it up in Cincy today, partaking in all the Opening Day festivities.

No, I honestly don't think Huggy will leave.

I think a lot of Huggin's detractors would see to it that he got a LOT of poublic criticism for leapfrogging so fast.

He's using this opportunity to get some things done - facilities upgrades (especially a new practice facility), salaries for asst coaches, his comp, etc. If he doesn't think he can get that done, then I honestly believe he's off to West Virginny. If he's reassured those items will get the front of the AD's plate, he'll be back in Manhattan. It's pretty simple.

I can sure understand why. They've built up alot of hope the last year or so under Huggins.

IMO, he's about to get a big fat raise. He ain't going to WVU.

That's my guess....

Why would he trade redneck hicks in the "Little Apple" for East Coast redneck hicks???

With the recruiting he's done, he's posturing for pay...IMO. And he should get it. Hell, the last time the Mildcats were this excited about Basketball, I didn't know what the hell the "G-spot" was....:hmmm:

Everyone knows that Huggy is using KSU to rehab his image for the next job, but how can he walk away from Beasley and Walker??

He can build a tourny team around them easy.

Plus, how would it hurt his recruiting down the road to burn those two? And what about Beasley's assistant coach that Huggy hired. does he go or stay?

If Huggy leaves, Beasley will get out of his LOI. Walker will certainly get screwed over, but Beasley will get to land somewhere.

Also, coaches leave all the time in this era - I don't think going home to WVU would hurt his recruiting one bit.

Ku fans just are what they are.

I've never seen an entire fanbase that wants soooooo badly to be Duke. They rag on commentators : "Dukie V" (never mind they tried to buy his love by giving him a wooden toucan. Too f'ing funny.) And Billy pACCker. Who if he doesn't talk of them like Dave "WOW" Armstrong, they gnash their teeth and keegle their collective vaginal muscle demanding that love, while screaming (during this year's NCAA tourney) pACCker must be a Duke alum the way he kisses their ass" Never mind that Packer is a Wake Forest grad. Just very low Bball IQ.

They stomp their collective feet when, as a #1 seed, they have to play the #2 seed in an arena that is 6 hours away from the #2 seed's campus. "It's not fair", they cry. But it's okay when their team plays a regional final in Kansas City. Or St. Louis. On 6 different occasions That's different. "It's not in the same state, at least".(chiefsfan1987) A very compelling argument. For a fanbase that suffers from Down's Syndrome BBIQ.


And after losing (most certainly at the hands of the referees or the commentators), they decry "They hit off balance, buzzer beating three's" and "That team fouled us but the ref's never called it all night". Or the best one: We missed 12 layups. No 14. No 18." The other team didn't win. The other team got lucky. And with the help of God and the referees and the combined hatred of Billy pACCker and Dukie V, and the NCAA selection committee and east/west (take your pick) bias, they all teamed up against us". It wasn't fair.

And finally, this is what happens when a fanbase gets caught up in loving ESPN's Scott Van Pelt after he attends a game in Phog Fieldhouse:

Oh, boy. Where to start. I am a KU fan and this does not apply. I actually like Dickie V. Billy Packer can be annoying at times, but I think he's a decent announcer. I don't expect them to say everything positive about my team all the time. Are some KU fans like that? Do some expect that? Yes. But to generalize the whole fanbase is ignorance.

Oh and the whole discussion about playing UCLA in Cali was not whining. I said in the very game thread that I didn't blame the Jayhawks' poor performance on that. I was merely pointing out that it was ludicrous for UCLA fans like Jim to state that it would not be filled with mostly Bruins fans. If you watched the game, you would have noticed all the Bruins fans cheering right from the beginning. It was a definite advantage whether or not you want to acknowledge it. I still don't think that is why the Jayhawks lost and I'm not making excuses for their poor performance.

Don't read too much into the pep rally being poo poo'd.

Just remember, this is a negotiation. If Huggs goes to a pep rally and calms everyone's fears with a few nice words, that doesn't really help his position, now does it?

He's using this opportunity to get some things done - facilities upgrades (especially a new practice facility), salaries for asst coaches, his comp, etc. If he doesn't think he can get that done, then I honestly believe he's off to West Virginny. If he's reassured those items will get the front of the AD's plate, he'll be back in Manhattan. It's pretty simple.


I really, honestly hope he doesn't make some BS speech at a pep rally like Roy did to us.

I'm not sure if you realize what everyone else is talking about. They will release Beasley and the rest of this year's recruits because the coach that recruited them will not be there anymore - that is standard practice.

You are just linking stories of recruits that simply asked to get released from their LOI without being under these circumstances.

I honestly don't care that much - if you want to continue to live in dream land, fine by me.

Still Lzen, we are talking about Huggins, He is a pretty well known coach for reasons you really donít want to be known for...

He can and will get players if he leaves. They might not be of the highest character, but he will have players...

WVU will be his final stop barring some major infractions or violations... IF he goes he will do just fine...

I'll tell you like told you last night: He's gone. It's been in the works since last Saturday. He'll announce this afternoon.

Yes. But it's the old 007 axiom: If I tell you, I have to kill you.

Unfortunately, I think he's gone.
As far as candidates: Fox from Nevada is from Garden City, Rolando, Scott Sutton?

I'll believe it when I see it. If he does, this will suck cause we need top tier talent and coaching for the Hawks to get better.

As for the Kitten fans, Ha Ha, so much for the comedy remarks about Roy leaving KU. What goes around comes around.

Still think the coach from VCU would be a good hire...


Also another Sutton in the Big 12? Could old man Eddie deal with watching his sons play against each other?

He wouldnt put that stopper back in the bottle for weeks leading up to those games.

Turgeon? :) KU grad coaching KSU would be more fuel to toss int he fire. Though his name sure has cooled down from last year.

actually, Fox would be a GREAT hire...is a very good coach, plus young and still full of fire...

I don't know about his recruiting abilities, but Reno is even more in the middle of nowhere than Manhattan...

that's the best name I've heard yet, and one that isn't based in fantasy

Fitz on 810 saying that NCAA does not allow conditional releases for recruits, so it's all or nothing. Fitz indicated that KSU may very well decide to enforce those LOIs....so suck it!

LOL, good luck with that. I'm sure Beasley would give 100% effort for KSU after they forced him to stay with their program.

Seriously, if KSU didn't let him out, they would be a laughingstock of a program.

Fatz doesn't know shit about LOI's.

Universities rarely enforce the LOI's in these cases, for two good reasons:

1. the coach bailed
2. future recruits will know how the previous recruits were treated

as william said, he'll be released...same thing happened at KU when Roy left...

apparently he is correct.

As you can see here on the official release form, it is either a full release or an enforcement.

it's pretty simple, they tell him he will be released as long as he doen't go to WVU....done deal

seriously, this situation happens every year, it ain't new
