To no one’s surprise, KU has (tacitly) acknowledged it too has received a subpoena from the Feds…deral-basketball-investigation-142515144.html Two players appear to be the focus. One I talked about the other day in connection to Maryland…Silvio DeSousa. The other is Billy Preston, who never played last season for KU after he got in an accident and the NCAA began to investigate how he came to have the automobile involved (shades of the […]

Brad Underwood Spread Offense

I watched OK State vs ISU the other day before they lost to M in a shootout. I thought OK State looked good, not great. Their PG is pretty good and matched up well vs ISU’s Monte Morris. How interesting is their style? First-year Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner adopted Underwood’s offense at Ga Tech, […]

Texas Is A Mess Right Now 

Shaka decided to take over the offense with no help from one of his 3 assistants. He has a GA and one of his special assistants running the offense with him.  Texas fans really don’t pay attention to basketball, but they are starting to realize that this guy has some major flaws as a coach.  […]

Chris Beard Lasts At UNLV For 1 Week…Takes Texas Tech Job

This was a REALLY interesting decision, IMO. – Beard (actually Texas Tech, I’m sure) paid a $1 million buyout to Vegas to set him free. – Reportedly he’s set to make more than the slightly north of $1 million/year Vegas was going to pay him. – Two big factors…he has daughters living within 3 hours […]

Brad Underwood (SFA) To Be Hired At Oklahoma State

Strong move by Pickens State University. I had this one before Travis Ford had been fired. Has a Big 12 background after serving on KSU’s staff under Huggy Bear and then Frank Martin (followed Martin to South Carolina for a year before getting the SFA gig). Good move for him as well…he’s 52 and the iron is hot, […]

Texas Hires Shaka

We’ll see how it goes for him there. I think he’s going to come in playing “havoc” and get his ass kicked. Then we’ll see what he does…can he change, can he learn, can he adjust? Big XII is a tough conference…I’d say a close third behind the Big Ten and ACC on a year […]

Oklahoma State Supposedly “50/50” On Firing Travis Ford

He’s gone out in the first round of the Tournament three straight years and last season, with Marcus Smart leading the charge, was definitely a disappointment but boy, I don’t know about that. Reportedly they’d have to pay a buyout just shy of $10 million to can Ford…that’s a big pill to swallow, even with […]
