    If Fred really did pull that on the kid before his final as reported, then there is no defending his judgement on that deal. Of course that's par for the course for Fred......No defense.

    Wasn’t he dismissed in middle of the season for team violations? He was never going to be much of an impact anyways.

    I thought he got hurt and fell behind and tried to leave for greener pastures.

    After that, crickets.

    That doesn’t make it that much better. He’s a college basketball coach, how difficult is it to get a kid’s finals schedule. Especially kids who you know you’re going to cut. It’s possible the kid showed up unannounced or Fred tried to schedule it at a different time but the kid refused, but if it’s not something like that then it’s a **** move on fred’s part.

    I don’t think people are complaining as much that he did it but when he did it. Yes, he’s there to win games but there’s also such a thing as common curtesy.

    If he was still coaching here you wouldn't care about this at all.

    Who's really going to look up someone's schedule?
    Probably, Fred asked if this meeting time worked. Kid said yes, because it's his coach, and now the deal is done.

    Of course not. All fans are hypocrites. Us included. But it doesn’t mean you can’t discuss things.

    Agree....and I might go as far to also say the school shouldn't be able to restrict school they could go to as well.

    Is there word on why he pushed him out? Was it just skill set vs. Fred's plan?

    If it was behavioral it wasn't like Fred didn't take kids with character issues.

    And KSU on some 'best of Big 12' list where they're 5th and ISU's 7th.

    He has a squeaky clean class that has never ever been tarnished. Story is fake news.

    And? I guess I don't see the difference between telling him during finals week and telling him the week before, or the week after.
