    A loss like this might certainly tilt him towards making the jump. Articles i saw said he's going to test the waters.

    That's too bad for the league. Him and Staten were really damn good together this year. Anyone know why he's leaving?

    Not at the top if you're trying to win a title. Let the bottom teams be decent and the top teams be very good instead of unbeatable.

    I don't care about the league, I care about ISU. If other teams get worse while we get better I am happy.

    One of the ways we get better is by playing in a difficult league.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    There will still be enough talent to make the Big 12 a tough schedule, wins mean more than schedule strength.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    You want to have a deep league with everyone worse than you. It does no good to have a team like KU and lose to them twice and not get the league title.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    This is very unexpected, with this news I don't see Staten coming back next year.

    That depends on the goal. If it's to win as many games as possible, you're right. If it's to become a better team that's more prepared for the postseason, that's not necessarily so.

    or by winning games, playing basketball that is fun for the players and getting better recruits.

    Winning a regular season Big 12 title is the first goal. I don't want the Big 12 to be the SEC, but I would love to be in KU's spot this year. A super deep league with nobody who is as good as you over the whole season.
