There was nothing to worry about, one of my favorite Wildcats of all time, Anthony Beane, held down the fort (bus) until the tow truck arrived.

I'm much closer to accepting oscar as one of us than I was a couple months ago, but I saw someone mention Gottlieb at the top of the page and it got me thinking. A fair percentage of the #bid'ers were or currently are proponents of Doug being the HC at KSU, and I think that's pretty humorous considering he was always defending Weber as a very good head coach on Petro's show. So, Doug is smart/awesome enough to be the HC at KSU, but is too stupid/lame to know who is a good head coach at this level? I guess if that mindset is the alternative then I'll just be #teambruce.

That's kind of revisionist. He did say he was a good coach, I never recall him calling Weber a "very good coach" but he also said his firing at Illinois was justified. I listened to an ESPN podcast in February of '12 right after he essentially said the team quit where Gottlieb, Dana O'Neil, and Eamon Brennan killed Weber for about 30 minutes. He was also critical of him pretty much all last season with regard to how he used the players especially JO. I took his praise of Weber as pretty general, and you can't expect him to kill the new head coach on 810 in Kansas City after he publicly lobbied for the job and then returned to the booth after he didn't get it.

What I'm referring to was during his tenure at Illinois. Even when he was having some subpar seasons at Illinois, Gottlieb would continually defend Weber to Petro, and would extoll his virtues quite often. I haven't listened to 810 much at all over the past 2-3 years, so I have no idea what he's said about oscar when he was fired from Illinois or what his opinion of him has been while he's been at KSU. I just always thought it was odd that he would go out of his way so often to let Petro know that he was wrong about Weber.

oscar is a family friend of the Gottliebs.  They go way back.  There's more there than just honest opinion.

I will accept oscar as long as Lowery is always right by his side.

Insightful.  Lowery is the defensive motivator. I don't know who is landing these recruits like Foster, Westicles, Thomas, Edwards and Hurt, but somebody is getting them to buy in.  :dunno:

I love Lowery, especially his Twitter account. He usually posts only one or two words followed by several !'s. It makes me  :lol: every time.

He also happens to be a defensive genius.

FACT: oscar's first team won KSU's first conference title since 1980.

FACT: oscar was upset by LaSalle in his first NCAA game at KSU.

FACTish: oscar's first team was led by Frank recruits.

FACTish: oscar's second team is led by his own recruits.

FACT: oscar has a lifetime .679 winning percentage and has been national coach of the year.

FACT: oscar has been fired.

Doing the toking doobies hand sign instead of the power claw or whatever it is is a million times better. This is pure genius.

That is not a joint-holding hand sign. It is an "implying he or someone else is not hung" hand sign. Cmon people, in the joint sign you clearly have to adjoin your thumb and index finger, and they are more curved. Oscar gets zero points from SB for being cooler than I thought. Verdict: still not accepting oscar.
