    Excerpt From Pat Forde's ESPN article: Michael Beasley's Mom

    The following is an excerpt From an ESPN article Pat Forde wrote while at last night's McDonald's High School All-American Game. The passage involves quotes from Fatima Smith, the mother of Kansas State recruit Michael Beasley:

    "Beasley's mother, Fatima Smith, was clutching the MVP trophy -- a replica of trophy namesake John Wooden's famed pyramid of success -- and posing for pictures when asked whether her son resents not having the chance to go pro right now.

    "I would love to see him have the opportunity, but he's going to go to the best coach in the world for my son," Smith said.


    That coach is Bob Huggins.


    "He still needs some fine-tuning, and he's going to get it," Smith said. "Discipline, sportsmanship, character."


    There might be a few (hundred) coaches I'd turn to before Bob Huggins for fine-tuning in those areas, but to each his own."



    Bob Huggins and Character?

    What she SHOULD'VE said is:

    "Whatever coach was willing to hire my son's high school AAU coach as an assistant is the coach that's going to give my son some fine-tuning, as well as teaching him discipline, sportsmanship, and character."

I'm not just your football coach; I'm not just here to win games. I could not be prouder of who we are and who we are becoming, together. You do things right in the classroom, off and on the field; that's whats's makes us Cyclones and that's what our culture's all about."
