What booster let Currie take his plane all over?

Moreover, per sources, UT has initiated the process to dispatch Currie with cause on the heels of insubordination claims. Among the most egregious of the claims, per multiple sources including some in the legal community and on the Tennessee campus, when urged to return home last week as the search dissolved into a national punchline, Currie instead opted to utilize the private aircraft of a Kansas State booster to continue trying to find Butch Jones’ replacement.

“That’s why no one knew where he was after he left (being turned down by N.C. State head coach Dave Doeren,” a source explained.

Anyone else have big issues with this from a purely K-State perspective?

Why is that an issue for K-State?   Likely the boosters who are tired of the annual vigil on the decision.
Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about it.  The situation doesn't feel "right" to me.  Like we shouldn't have well placed members of our community messing around in the internal workings of another AD, especially something like a coaching search where things can get nasty (ie Tennessee's crap show). 
Also I'm not sure what you mean by the annual vigil on the decision.  Not trying to be snarky, mind is not working right now with a headache.

The annual decision. 

I don't consider meddling in anyone else's business.

LOL. What in the world? Ain't no KSU booster sharing his plane with JC.

Why wouldn't they? I bet I could guess whose plane it was.

I just can't see wanting to be involved in that dumpster fire. You have to know it's coming out sooner or later.

Why would anybody think that letting Currie use the jet moves the needle on Snyder?

This smells like bull crap.  Or, at the very least if true not in the way presented.  I like the theory that I read either here or botc that suggested Currie and/or Schulz had seen the (short term) future and that Currie was meeting with Leach at Schulz behest to get a jump on getting fired to see if the two could get along amicably.  In 'that' scenario I could see a Schulz-friendly KSU booster allowing use of their private jet - but not in any other.  (also note I didn't say I'd support that usage, just that I could see it)

I don't look at it so much as Currie moving the needle on Snyder after his departure, but that there is a deep split in our AD between boosters who love Currie enough to attach our name, tangentially, to a dumpster fire of a coaching search by letting him use a private jet to fly around the country in a national crap show.  And Bill and his camp of people.
I'm probably reading too much into that, admittedly, but it makes from some interesting conspiracy theories.

It's very strange but I really don't care what KSU boosters do with their private jets. Hopefully they'll be able to write that crap off soon! :kstategrad:

I will say it's thought K-State Carl is still really close with Currie, as many big donors are as well. And recently there are grumblings of him not being a fan of Bill holding the program hostage and Gene Taylor sitting around doing nothing about it.

No idea if any of that is completely true, or if the plane use is related to any of this. Just good BBS fodder.

Seems way more likely to me that John asked his rich friend (who he happened to know from his time at K-State) if he could charter his jet for a while.  Just because someone gives $$$ to KSU doesn't mean he stops knowing people like Currie the minute they leave.

I wouldn't be opposed to bringing that weasel back in strictly a fund-raising/facilities role.  Just keep him away from an NCAA compliance role or any involvement with the coaching staff at all.

Would absolutely love to see Currie grovel his way back here only to have The Mustang laff in his face and silverback the crap out of him.

Do you by chance own a private jet?

Wait, they fired Currie so they could hire a guy that was a position coach on MTV's Two-A-Day's?

What a joke that school/program is.
