Hopefully we are tampering the ball sacks off of next years portal class right now

They seem to be pushing NIL pretty hard right now. Only going to assume we are struggling there.

I didn't think the portal would have been the way it is now when he got hired

Happy Portal Day! 

All I want for Portal Day is for Old St. Jerome to bring me a seasoned point guard, a seasoned shooting guard, and a big that can run wrapped under my hoop.

I’ve been pretty good this year.

We can't afford that sorry. Pick 2/3.

It may be greedy, but I want the doods who lead their small schools to deep runs in the NCAA tournament.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

PG and SG. Colbert and rich/taj/etc would be perfectly serviceable with a deadeye outside.

PG and SG for sure (unless you can find me a Big that can also shoot from 3 like Tomlin).

I read an article today that said this guy may be coming to us. Apparently, Ulric was with him at Texas and they got along well.

Who is taking on the Kaluma role if we spend our money on two guards?

A team doesn't require a Kaluma role.  But possibly Buddy Rich?  We are going to have plenty of roster spots available for transfers.

a team with a 3 guard, 2 big line up like 2021 Baylor did not have a guy like Kaluma

So who on our current roster fills the 2 big roles?

Unless we hit a portal grand slam, our team will have to look at least a little bit different next year or we will have the same or worse results.

Yea and we have more serviceable guards than bigs on the current roster. Hence my confusion with not spending some money on a big.

To me, our current bigs are only serviceable if we have good guards.

Like if we roll out Ames and two new transfer guards with Buddy and Colbert we are going to get rough ridin' torched every night. There just aren't any combination of bigs currently on the roster where if we play them both at the same time we aren't playing 3 on 5 offensively.

Where the bigs are right now, maybe.  Where they will be with some off season development, maybe.  I think Colbert is a good rim protector and he can run with the team fine.  Who know's on Buddy.  DNG is great as is.  Taj, I am not optimistic about, but he is obviously athletic enough so maybe he can get there too. 

If we have two PGs that can move the ball and create openings for themselves and others, if we have a reliable shooting guard, and we have Cam still, we should be pretty OK with a good rim protector and DNG.  Better than we were this year, by more than one or two games, imo.

I'm not on Twitter so can't confirm, but I heard Buddy Rich removed all the K-State stuff from his socials. Sounds like he might be portaling?
