    You have to at least give them props for not being stupid enough to remain committed to Ford.
    This, wouldn't blame anyone for finally seeing how bad of a coach Ford is and thinking they'd be better served somewhere else. Much luck to him wherever he ends up. No doubt in my mind that if Fred does pull him in that he could handle any baggage that came along with him.

    For some reason though I thought there was talk of him really wanting to go to Duke wanting to hold out for a Duke offer before his out of the blue OSU signing. Wonder if coach K came calling now if he'd jump on that bandwagon.

    Sure sounds like they want the highest profile school they can play basketball at.

    There is a clause in his contract about APR, which I heard is low, so he could get fired because of that.

    I agree with your perception. Hard to read most of that and 'not' think they're wanting more top notch schools to come courting. To me, that means 'someone elite' out there, or its back to OkieState. Not sure he would consider another Big12 school. Guess future visits will be the only indication. Lets just hope if he does put us back into consideration, he really means it, and its not just smoke or an extended list, thus dragging our coaches through the stress of it all.

    Re: Grandstaff Visiting in August

    Kid just tweeted he got an offer from Washington (T.J's on him). Seriously, though, is this kid going to tweet out every offer he gets (which will be many)? Because how could they all be elite 'enough'???...so says dad.

    He will be in big trouble if Smart figures out how to flop on his tests.

    HeliDad probably runs the tweet site.

    Boosters will pay a player or 2 a million bucks to flunk out of school and everyone wins.

    Kids tweet offers all of the time. Usually with #blessed or #humblebrag or #lookatme!
