Re: Facilities

Hyper, agree that sports spending is way out of line, but I try to rationalize it by remembering how much donations for academic facilities, scholarships, etc. went up when KSU started winning at football. Also, I'm not sure that throwing money at higher education results in better education for ou...

Re: Facilities

A two year program to teach? My daughter is an elementary teacher (Austin, TX) and there is a lot more content than a two year program. No there isn't really. 2 years of general, then you start your "educational blocks" where you actually learn teaching strategies, followed by a student teaching se...

Re: Facilities

i always thought two-year degrees would be a good idea like for agronomy, bookkeeping, teaching, and the like. probably doesn't work for engineering and physics. but my gosh, some of these disciplines do not need four years of college. Those two year degrees already exist at the community colleges....

Re: Facilities

To suggest that the successes (or failures) of the athletic department and the university are exclusive of each other is silly. While the athletic department may operate "independently" (the president does have oversight) it's unreasonable to suggest that there isn't always a bit of robbing peter t...

Re: X's displeasure and obvious bump on weber

Lease enlighten me to any other coach in the big 12 that has won a championship with mostly 2-3 star players? I think that last years team and the year before over-achieved with the talent level that was recruited. Outside of Dean was there another top 100 player on that roster? Texas Tech might be...

Re: This is the number one reason

Wade wasn’t a particularly good foul shooter. He didn’t extend and often short-armed his free throws. You could tell when he was going to miss the second it left his hand. X brings the ball way too far back behind his head, In my opinion. I’ve seen some damn good free throw shooters use the wide st...

Re: This is the number one reason

And in years past I have seen Barry Brown shoot free throws before a game, Dean Wade shoot free throws, DJ Johnson, Mike Evans, Ed Nealy, etc. And just to get everybody excited, heres a few things Sneed does wrong with his free throws. 1. Feet too far apart. 2. Feet too parallel to the line. 3. Fee...

Re: This is the number one reason

What many don’t understand and I’m not going to dwell on this much because most won’t understand is that shooting free throws in a non competitive situation in practice or warmup is totally, totally different than shooting in a game situation. You’re chest isn’t heaving from being winded, your hear...

Re: Baylor v ku

Put both Diarra and Sneed in the opposite corners. They'll have to come out and guard, which will leave the paint more open. Mak at the high post to the left or right of the free throw line to draw Dok out. If Dok hedges, let Mak shoot free throws. Same for Stockard. David at the point to drive the...
