Title: Mizzou looking at Currie for AD

The longer Bruceketball circles the drain the less likely it is that Currie gets his big boi SEC AD Job.

If Mizzou offers I can see him taking it in a heartbeat.

Fun questions to ponder

1. Would this make it easier to ditch oscar? Could it move the timeline up a year?

2. How would currie get along with pinkel?

3. How would this effect KSU as a whole? Fundraising/more awesome buildings/snyder replacement etc...

4. What if Mizzou hires him, Currie fires Kim immediately and hires oscar?!?!

Well, this could be interesting.  I mean, they already don't give a crap about their bb team, so he would only have to focus on fb, rather than juggling like he rough ridin' cares.

He could move from job to job in a Beverly Hillbillies type pack and drive manner.  That would keep him from having to dress as a meth dealer or rapist at the first alumni dinner.  It would create that one-of-us images that he is so good at presenting.

What a perfect situation for John Currie. Football is on cruise control, and whatever bball hire he makes will most likely be much better than Kim Anderson. He can focus on cleaning up Mizzou's image and making facility upgrades. He'd be great there.

Dr. Derrick Gragg.  Tulsa's AD.  Hired Philip Montgomery as FB coach and Frank Haith as BB coach.  I really don't think he'd hire a Frank Haith type here, but that was a good hire for Tulsa.  I listen to him once a week on my drive home.  He sounds like smart, personable guy.  Would definantly take.

MY PLAN TO AVOID THE oscar BUYOUT IS SOUNDING A BIT MORE FEASIBLE

What was the plan?

oscar's buyout is $2.5 million.  $100K/mo (first payment due immediately and then the rest over 24 months) but if oscar is employed by someone else coaching basketball that gets subtracted.  So I suggested we negotiate to find oscar another job and the other school gets oscar at a reduced rate.

So lets play this game....Currie leaves for mizzou.

Does Bill take advantage of the power vacuum and immediately announce that this is his last year and he will be handing it off to sean/dimel next year? Maybe he just "Retires for health reasons" in July and hands it off to Sean/Dimel to give them a year to prove themselves.

I think the second scenario is doubtful because we will be "rebuilding/reloading" next year and we could struggle. The first scenario though.....Would force the new AD to play along or immediately be at odds with the most beloved member of the kstate family.

I don't think he's that much of a dick. Also, I think that he knows if Sean/Dimel don't have full support of the AD then their tenure won't be long anyway.

He seems a little too conservative to hire a coach with enough upside that we could conceivably achieve the on-field/on-court success that the fans are expecting. Hiring oscar didn't do anything to help that perception.

If Currie leaves it cements Sean as our next FB coach (which is obviously something this board hates to think about)...probably for 2016 season if I were to guess and does nothing to remove oscar from MHK faster than March of 2016.

The only thing Currie leaving does is immediately create the potential to eff up football (like according to this board Sean will do), but hey guess ya'll can BBS with eachother about that.

This isn't rough ridin' 1992. We have a school president, that like him or hate him, does not seem beholden to the interests of the good ol' boys club around K-State athletics. Seeing how he hired John Currie and JC has told Bill to eff off a couple of times, what leads you to believe that the next AD he hires won't have the same kind of authority? This moron is having trouble with your premise.

Mizzou hiring Currie would be a blessing for K-State.  The guy might be the most overrated AD in Big 12 history.   He ran off an incredibly popular and successful basketball coach only to hire oscar Rough Ridin' Weber.  The football program is in cruise control as long as Snyder is the coach, and all of the stadium upgrades are 100% due to Snyder's success.  Currie has been riding his coattails for years now and taking full credit for it, while simultaneously making Snyder's life miserable.   Oh, and plus, he refuses to release players from their scholarships and suspends athletes for so much as farting in public.  The Currie love is one of the more tuckish aspects of goEMAW, but hey, he's a convincing SOB.   Give him credit for that.

Spot on with the first part but when it comes to stadium upgrades/fundraising currie has been superb. I wouldn't say he was riding snyder's coattails since snyder has had this type of success(and arguably more success) in the past without significant upgrades being done. Sure college athletics is a completely different game than in the 90's early 00's but you have to give currie credit for seizing the opportunity and building us awesome stuff.

John Currie is able to raise funds marginally better than your average (competent) AD. The main reason the difference is so stark between him and our other AD's is because the other guys were composed of incompetent fools and the only man more conservative (read: resume builder, gives no fucks about future KSU success) than John Currie.

Fundraising would be dog hullabaloo if Ron Prince was running the show.  Snyder winning a bunch of games and kicking ass has made the fundraising possible.  Any AD with an IQ above room temperature could scrounge up enough money to build an $80 million stadium upgrade in this day and age of college athletics (with a coach like Snyder running the program*).  Like I said.... Coattails.

There were Big 12 Schools like ISU and ku who had no dedicated football complex, ku was over 20 years behind K-State in building one.  How many times does this have be said?   How can any fan of a school who went decades without a dedicated football complex (or dedicated outdoor track facility) call anything small time?   You just don't have a clue and never will.   We've all said it's time for Currie to move on, but he's raised money at unprecedented levels in K-State history, I know way more about how the money was raised at K-State than you could ever pretend to know.

If Currie leaves it cements Sean as our next FB coach (which is obviously something this board hates to think about)...probably for 2016 season if I were to guess and does nothing to remove oscar from MHK faster than March of 2016.

The only thing Currie leaving does is immediately create the potential to eff up football (like according to this board Sean will do), but hey guess ya'll can BBS with eachother about that.

You people are weird.

This just isn't true at all.

Things I want in an AD:

1. Hire and support good coaches who will win, and not crash MBB or FB. Also, stay the eff out of their way.
2. Keep up with the Jones's in facilities
3. Other stuff

John Currie:  $200 million in new facilities built on K-State owned property.

Cheyenne Zulu:  Signed lease for track, softball, soccer stadium built miles off campus and partially funded by local government.   Helped find money for a basketball apartment that won't be run or operated by ku athletics.

I met JC and BW on the same day, i was infinitely more impressed with Currie.  hes done a fantastic job running the athletic department.  The oscar hire was a misstep in hindsight and probably in foresight but it is what it is.   If anything making the safe hire and having it not pan out might encourage him with take more risk with his next (ie not hire Sean)

Mizzou hiring Currie would be a blessing for K-State.  The guy might be the most overrated AD in Big 12 history.   He ran off an incredibly popular and successful basketball coach only to hire oscar Rough Ridin' Weber.  The football program is in cruise control as long as Snyder is the coach, and all of the stadium upgrades are 100% due to Snyder's success.  Currie has been riding his coattails for years now and taking full credit for it, while simultaneously making Snyder's life miserable.   Oh, and plus, he refuses to release players from their scholarships and suspends athletes for so much as farting in public.  The Currie love is one of the more tuckish aspects of goEMAW, but hey, he's a convincing SOB.   Give him credit for that.
rich criticism coming from a fan of a school who employs sheahon zenger as their ad


Zulu has more national championships during his time at KU than K-State has in the entire history of its athletic department.  Dude has also reached record high athletic revenues and upgraded/built a crap ton of new facilities.

He hired Charlie Weiss and David Beatty

^ This should close this case (with apologies to WC08 for borrowing his line).

I would put them both on the same tier.

I'm not sure how exactly AD's would judge athletic departments as a whole though. Would a large state institution with tons of sports but little success at the important ones (Cal) be more attractive than a school that maybe doesn't play water polo or field hockey but kicks ass in bball and fball?

It probably depends on the AD. John Currie would not care at all about a school's water polo or field hockey teams.

 :confused:

I don't think it really matters.  Dealing with Snyder's departure is a no win situation.  No one you hire will ever be good enough.

Also, the oscar thing is going to get ugly before it gets better.

Contrast that with Mizzou.  It will probably be easier to find a good coach to come to Mizzou after the success Pinkel has had, and you have to have a pulse to hire an upgrade to Kim Anderson.

If he got their finances in order like he did ours, he fundraised there like he did here, and he did okay with the coaches, I think that gets his career trajectory back on the path he wants.  As of now, I think KSU is going to be a tough situation to step up from.  We're running out of things to throw huge piles of money at to build his resume, and the coaching situations are a mess.

So, regardless of whether or not Mizzou is a better job, all things being equal, I think it's a better situation for him to step into if he wants to ultimately run an elite AD or pull a Bowlsby.
