I suppose you agree that the B12 just wasn't all that this year ...

    Well looks like Texas won again. So TCU and UT are meeting in Madison Square Gatden. Dominating the Not Invited tourney again.

    I watched some of those NIT games. They've actually been pretty entertaining because some are well-matched games like NC State v. Lipscomb last night which was a barnburner.

    But Texas, my gosh. They beat CU because Buffs' suckage runs deeper than the sea. Shaka has 6'9" 250# Dylan Osetkowski wandering around beyond the 3-point line like a shooting guard all night long rather than playing a hi/lo game with his bigs. Smart's offense is just putrid given the talent on that squad.

    Hoping an NIT win can buy Shaka some extra time in Austin.

    Whew! That's three ass-whoopings by Tech in the tournament. Did you see the Michigan game? Tech won by a lot of points. Maybe you should apologize for your nastiness. That's right...apologize.

    Chris Beard is no joke. How long until a better program scoops him up?

    Surly, TT won. I guess the Big 12 doesn't suck according to your logic.

    Beard has like a $12 million buyout right now. It would take someone real serious to pull him immediately.

    Also, it seems surly is a little surly that the Big 12 regular season championship was shared.

    Actually to be honest from a pure basketball standpoint....Weber cant recruit very well you should know this. Is he good at finding diamonds in the rough and coaching them up? Yes....Hes also had his share of below average teams and there is a reason he got fired at Illinois. Wade it was very obvious when he was a freshman that he was over looked in recruiting and would be a nice 4 year player. The same couldn't be said about Brown and Stokes but Weber did a nice job with them. What everyone else is saying though is pretty accurate considering you will now have a 2 year drop off "probably" until the new class has time to develop because Diarra, McGuirl and Sneed are not on the level of the 3 just mentioned. KSU will be last 4 in or first 4 out next year....IMO.

    Lard isn't as big of a loss as some think. Now if ISU lost Wigginton and/or THT....then we'd be in trouble.

    Beard has done one hell of a job in his short time there. Rooting for them to make it to the Final Four. Would like to see another Duke Tech matchup. But another Duke Zags wouldn't be bad either.

    Weber has 2 all-conference first teamers (Brown and Wade) and 4 all-conference academics this year. In 7 years at K-State, Weber's won two B12 championships and been to the E8. The results speak for themselves.

    As for Dean Wade, he had offers from Iowa, OU, TCU, Vandy, many others, and was a top 150 recruit. He committed early to K-State. The incoming 2019 class includes Chicago's POY.

    https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2015/dean-wade-7173#school-interests

    There's no question that Weber develops talent. And no, I don't expect another B12 championship this coming season but neither will the EMAWs fall off the table.

    Dang, good for Gordon, that's impressive. I had no idea Terrence Shannon moved out of the city for IMG. Surprised how few top-tier recruits there are in the city of chicago this year, in general looking through that list. Always forget EJ Liddell is in East St. Louis also, now that we are out on him.

    $12M isn't insurmountable though...steep...a handful of teams could stomach that.

    What will be fascinating will be the off season with transfers and grads...you can become a contender with just a couple of smart moves...

    I think Texas is going to cross its fingers for one more year with Smart. He is owed a lot of money still so combining that with Beard's buyout is a huge chunk of change and that' is before you even start paying Beard.
