Reading that literally ruined my night. I can buy letting him coach next year but why on earth would they extend him.

This has has a great chance to zoom post the cigars thread in terms of length.   

The only question is if goEMAW will be around long enough. I doubt it will.

How can you fire such a great guy?  Just does it the k-state way.  oscar can have as many strikes as the opening scene of Mr. Baseball does IMO

He's under contract through '19. Please tell me they won't extend beyond that if the somehow squeak into the tourney. Is it that uncommon to coach with 2 years left?

Each practice starts with a quote on the whiteboard, and Weber has chosen this one from Rockefeller specifically: I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything

He definitely feels heat. Who knows how real it is.

His schedule was the first indicator that he felt heat as early as last April but the gE echo chamber chose to see that differently.

Fired: No
Why not: People who are in charge of making the decisions are maybe still idiots?

I will rough ridin' riot with an extension -- well anything less than his canning, really. It's like giving a mountain climber more carabiners when all he's does is edge sideways on a cliff.

Finally, an analogy everyone can relate to.

So we're back to Weber running of Foster and not Currie? This narrative changes every day.

He apparently tells himself that he's the best thing to happen to Purdue, Illinois, that small school he was at, and K-State. I'll admit he's done some good things in his career. To deny that is hater level 10. But still, to gloss over his overall "averageness" with his high points is unreal.

SteveDave is it acceptable to get an old copy of Mizzouboy out of the closet and fantasize about coachies being released?  It is kind of exciting getting a new coach.  We may have to live vicariously through Missouri.

I really dgaf about either of those right now as it relates to who ran off whom. I just want Weber gone. That's all.
