    Pickens to throw money at Bill Self

    They are talking this morning on 810 radio in KC that Boone Pickens is going to throw tons of money at Self at the end off the year. Says that he is prepared to make Self the highest paid coach in college athletics not just basketball.

    Im sure the laundry bill has to have doubled since Sean came on. They have never had to use so many towels for sweat.

    That will be absolutely hilarious if KU were to win the title (or at least does very well) and he bolts for $ OSU,000,000.00.

    Re: Pickens to throw money at Bill Self

    Self can't take that job. No one will ever respect him again. He can't ever say "It's not all about the money," . IMO he would be setting him self up to be the biggest shmuck ever. And then you add in the pressure of win now or your over paid.

    The good news is he could rebuild his staff with a whole new group of dads.

    You mean he didn't set himself up for that upon the acceptance of the Kansas job? I respected Self a lot when he was still at Illinois. My respect for him has eroded for him every year since he bailed on the Illini for Kansas.

    I guess one could make an case that KU was a step up from Illinios. Nobody will be saying the about OSU.

    Re: Pickens to throw money at Bill Self

    It would be nice if ISU had a donor like Boone Pickens but at the same time it would be a huge pain in the butt. He runs the OSU athletic dept and the AD is his puppet. OSU gets little respect in the nation because of Pickens. He has done good things for that OSU, but he needs to allow the AD and his staff to do their jobs. It seems everytime OSU is in the news Pickens is quoted.

    You could definitely argue that going from Illinois to KU is a step up in the coaching world, which happens all the time. Going from KU to OSU would have to be all about the $$$$.
