Thanks TTG

He's a phenomenal recruiter. He was great at Arkansas State (landed Ryan Wedel there, Wedel bailed when Forrest left them for us) and he's been great for us. Tony Mitchell has repeatedly referred to him as "Dad", and he's our primary point of contact in Dallas AAU and high school scene. We did pretty well for ourselves recruiting before he came along (most everyone on the team that you saw in the tournament predated Forrest's arrival), but he's got us on the radar of guys like T-Mitch and Keith Frazier.

It looks more and more like JJ is on his way to LSU. If we lose him and then Forrest leaves, too... I may not make it up for Preseason NIT because I'll have hung myself from despair.

TTG will you be coming to Manhattan for our football game? You can crash at my place.

I've already been to Manhattan twice for football. I've run out of nuts for you fuckers to kick.

On the basketball front, though- We've been planning on making the NIT games for almost a month now. Until last week, I felt pretty good about our chances.

Now... If we lose Forrest to you guys? It might be too painful. Like traveling to the wedding between your soul mate and some lawn mowing simpleton who destroyed a once-proud Big 10 program.

A guy that calls out the refs on a twitter tirade of the same magnitude of a drunk FakeDanBeebe, and who is also a guy with the sketchy enough morals, loose enough ethics, and ability to bagman to Tony Mitchell, is def a guy I want on staff.

Forest as the third assistant would be great. Hopeful for Howard as the 2nd assistant.

@Cole_Manbeck: Weber On the possibility of Jerrance Howard joining the staff. "Jerrance has a contract and he’s got to resolve that with Illinois."

Honestly, if the staff was Lowery, Howard, and Forrest, it would be fantastic.

I'd be interested to see who DOBO would be.  Maybe that's where Jay Price fits in.  I guess, from my reading, he and Weber are pretty tight, and he's not much of a recruiter, so who knows; it may be his best option.

Also, he went to KU, and he's from Oklahoma, so maybe he would like to get back to the area anyway.  :dunno:

This was in Meek's article from yesterday.

The biggest thing for me is recruiting. There are some guys in the business that have Kansas State ties, but their recruiting backgrounds are so similar to us, I’m not sure that’s the best thing in the long run.

I'm assuming this may be why Beane hasn't been hired. BP last night said Beane is interested, so its possible that Beane reached out to Weber to gain interest, but Weber turned it down. I agree with the approach, the only Illinois based recruiter he should hire is Howard IMO.

I saw Grensing in New Orleans hanging out with the Oregon staff sans Altman.

coach grensing used to rock a hell of a moustache.  i  think he got in trouble with the NCAA back when he worked for altman and was doing JUCO recruiting at KSU.  phone calls or something, i can't remember but it's been like 20 years, i doubt that's what kept him from coaching at OU.

 :facepalm:

I would have to imagine that these morons would recognize the importance of having a recruiter with ties in Texas due to the fact that, in football, THEY ALWAYS SCREAM ABOUT HAVING GUYS WITH TIES IN TEXAS.

I hate them so much.  So, so, so much.

ou is on probation, and couldn't hire anyone who had been named in NCAA violations.
