Re: Pullen for coach.

A little more background on Pullen's recruiting. It was definitely a mistake on Weber's part, assuming Jake's grades were OK for Ill. They'd been known to pull the plug over the coaches' heads on marginal academic guys. The UI AD at the time was a stickler for compliance in the wake of UI's bad hist...

Re: Recruiting Thread

Seems like Williams would be a natural in Weber's system. It must drive a coach batty to be recruiting these guys for months and months. And months. I used to think asking a girl on a date was hard! It would be a very good decision for Williams to join the corps that's already onboard IMHO.

Re: So long Cartier

I was always a big Carti fan, but it bears remembering that his off-court "accident" really crippled the depth of the best K-State team in a l-o-n-g time, a team that was short on depth to begin with. Easy to imagine how one more candidate to have an "on" shooting day might have avoided the first ro...

Re: So long Cartier

There are PLENTY of venues for guys who want to "turn pro" and Carti is good enough to land one. I agree that his presence on next year's team was going to be odd/awkward/whatever. Time to turn the page.

Hype we’re talking about D. Gordon here. Not some random highlight video of a high school kid that fans watch. ???
Puff-I think maybe Hype was referring to the incoming class, speaking to the point of whether and to what extent its members will be "better" than Gordon however you measure that.

Re: Minutes next year.

I have a vague recollection that it used to be something like 8 games. But it was kind of fluid. I also have a vague recollection that you had to apply for it, and the reason for the application was usually an injury, not getting beat out for playing time by Zeke.

Re: D.Gordon

On the issue of leadership, not skills, I note the D. Gordon was apparently the guy who promoted the idea of a start for McAtee. In his HS career he was definitely the leader on a team that went a long way (state championship) w/o an overwhelming edge in talent. However it plays out I'm very very gl...

Re: We'll score next year - it's an attitude

d'gordon will take over leadership of this team as well as become a star as he builds muscle and develops his game. Just so you don't feel like the Lone Ranger tmcats, I agree. If D. Gordon not pulling his weight is the biggest problem this team has next year, it will be a damned good season. On a ...

Re: We'll score next year - it's an attitude

Good observation about D.Gordon for 90% of the season, but in the last few games the light bulb was beginning to go on IMHO. He finally figured out-hey, nobody else is doing it so why don't I give it a shot.

Re: Recruiting Thread

Maybe he flips to an academic schollie if Williams commits?? I have to say as you watch guys walk out the door en masse in Ames and Wichita it's kind of refreshing that even after the disaster of a season our freshman class still appears to be intact and Dijuan at least is still out recruiting addit...
