I do enjoy WSU and their "below the rim" style of basketball.  Makes it easier for me to relate to when watching their games.  There is really nothing as exiting as watching a perfectly executed lay-up.  Its a nice complement to old timey basketball before they were allowed to dunk.

It's kinda sad that Ron Baker is better than Will Spradling.

I think too many Emaws have some deep-seated insecurities when it comes to Wichita State.

Why can't some of you give them their due?

They'll never be a threat to us, or even play us in the near future.

Be happy for them, it's the only bright spot in the most underachieving town in the Midwest.
Agreed here. They are in the MVC, why wish any worse on them? TSC.

Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

He's a very good coach. He was actually in my top 10 when we hired Huggins.

Holy hell naw. I get on Patterson quite a bit for being a big fish in a small pond, but Marshall makes Patterson seem like Steve Spurrier. Marshall is absolutely the most maniacal, paranoid, whiny, least media savvy coach in college basketball; it isn't even close. He has one of the most friendly media markets and insular fan base in America yet he is constantly feuding with someone about something insignificant. His assistant coaches don't love him and he doesn't have the best reputation nationally. This was publicly bantered about through the media after his final four run and during the post season hiring spree. I have a WSU insider who has pretty much confirmed all the rumors about his behavior.

He's a great basketball coach but the bright lights, if they ever come, will be an issue for him

Wait, are you seriously saying you wouldn't take Marshall over oscar Weber given the choice?

yes, it was funny to hear his redassery come out in virtually  every national interview he did during the F4 run.

I will admit,  it does remind me a bit of LHC LHC LHC Bill Snyder before he evolved into the kindly grandfather he is now.  Is  Marshall as prickly with fans and boosters as he is the media?

How did you get that out of what I typed? That's two completely different conversations. If we're having the conversation both are pretty poor long term solutions for a high major program.

They have a good shot at going undefeated into the tournament. I just looked at WSU's schedule, and man the Mo Valley is horrid.
