Sadly it won't be until we lose our opening round game Wednesday in the Big 12 tourney. Currie's ineptitude will give him the benefit of the doubt up until that point...which I bet we lose @TCU and at home in front of a half packed Bramlage against Tech on Senior day.

I really don't care when he's fired, it doesn't matter that much. For a program like ours, firing before the end of the season could actually be detrimental to the process IMO. Either way, I don't think it matters that much except to us fans who want the coach gone.

The real issue is whether or not Currie has started the process behind the scenes like any competent AD would do at this point. He should be going through back channels to talk to agents, etc. about level of interest.

Worse thing that could happen (I say that hesitantly, because I want to make the NCAA's) is oscar winning the next 2 games and then one in the tourney.

TBH I didn't like the way Wooly was fired.  Almost the most small timey thing we've done. 



I wouldn't care if Oscar got broken off that way.

Assuming we don't do what needs done to get to the NCAAs (which we won't), I want him fired before he gets to the locker room and the replacement announced less than 24 hours later just to drive home the point that he was a dead man walking for a while. Of course, I'm a Currie hater at this point too (probably unustified to a large degree, but whatevs), so I'd like them to help each other pack and move.

Guys, I'm flying in for the Big 12 tourney. If oscar gets fired while I'm there, let's crush beers together and I'll buy a mind erasing amount of shots for every one.

Looks like March 9th is starting to turn into a crappy day in the history of oscar's life.  Fired from Illinois on March 9th.  If things play out and we are playing on Wednesday in the Big12 tournament and lose, the next day is also March 9th.

I felt the same way about Turner Gill and the other hefty coach you had that's name was not Mangino... cannot remember his name now.

Whether you love him or not, coach oscar Weber has won a lot of basketball games. He may be on the hot seat in Manhattan but it may not be time to make a coaching change.

First of all, some believe oscar Weber’s Wildcats exceeded expectations this season.

Kansas State started strong with a 12-1 mark entering conference play. Only a 1 point loss to a tough Maryland team kept them from a perfect record.

As a result, the  Associated Press recognized Kansas State for their hot start with 4 votes in the December 12, poll.

Also, the December 19, AP poll included the ‘Cats- with one vote.

Maybe fans should consider the national attention? Although it’s not huge, it certainly looked good at the time.

In October, coaches picked the Wildcats to finish 9th in the ten-team Big 12.  By comparison, the same poll predicted Texas and their big-time talent to finish third.

oscar Weber’s team is currently sitting tied for 6th with two games to play. Shaka Smart’s Longhorns are tied for the Big 12’s basement.

Since Texas underperformed,  maybe Smart should be on the hot seat rather than Weber?

The Wildcats play in the toughest conference in the country with an incredibly difficult round-robin schedule.

Ken Pomeroy, the guru who tracks college basketball strength of schedules and more keeps telling fans how good the basketball is in the Big 12..

Not only is the Big 12 the best conference, but it's the most exciting. 37% of games decided by 3 pts or less or in OT. No conference close.

It is especially important for fans to remember Weber picked up a milestone career victory this season. On December 6, Weber earned the 400th win of his coaching career when the ‘Cats beat Prairie View 74-55. There is something to be said for his experience.

Coach Weber knows how to win. Due to injury and other factors we have seen few wins in February. Fans are understandably angry. They expected much more from this senior class. Did they expected too much.

Finally, fans didn’t like Kansas State Athletic Director John Currie’s choice to replace Frank Martin.

Did you know Martin has not taken a team to the NCAA tournament since his final year at Kansas State?  His team went to NIT last season. They lost in the 2nd round.

It will be fascinating to see how Weber’s ‘Cats finish the regular season. Stay tuned.

How can you criticize Frank for going to the NIT last year when KSU wasn't even invited?

March 9th is Mrs. DMartin's birthday.  She probably wouldn't enjoy that present as much as I would, but she'd still be happy.

Wow, I hate to think of the probability of that happening.  The agony of watching yet another men's BB team giving up on oscar.  Even my KU friends were expressing sympathy for the spectacle that took place in Norman on Saturday.

I bet they have to wait until the Monday after the NCAA selection Sunday, but I am really looking forward to SD's daily updates and insights into possible causes of delays in the process.
