Really a proud moment for ku, when their AD apparently convinced enough people that he had no conceivable idea how the tickets to their most important sport, the entity that keeps the athletic program financially solvent were being handled.  A situation that landed 4 people in Federal Prison.

I again, tip my hat to Lew Perkins (and others)




It's a great day to be a Wildcat and it's a great day to say no to the Pit.

You guys better hope beems doesn't see this thread

It's @OregonSmock and I hope he comes in here and sets the record straight.   Lotta :jeffy: going on.

Why do so many ku people fail to accept reality?   You should see all the dumbfounded, shellshocked "Carolina Way" people mumbling and sputtering their way through trying to explain why what happened at UNC wasn't really that bad.   If you really want to believe that Bill Self and Calipari and others land the talent they do simply because the kid is all motored up by the "tradition" and that fanbase boner giving pre-game intro video . . . knock yourself out.   Tons of schools have nice facilities and nice places to live. 

I'll readily admit agent-player shenanigans were in play for guys like Beasley and Bill Walker, and that the NCAA looked into it, but nobody would snitch.l

Self and his lil BFF developer buddy have a nice little gig going (amongst multiple facets of the operation) . . . enjoy it ku fans.

It is the shear breadth of the apparent conspiracy that makes you sound paranoid.  I doubt Self himself has much knowledge of any shenanigans, much less is personally orchestrating it.
Dude, the ticket deal with Pump N Run stank to high heaven but only a couple of AD flunkies took the fall  - you need to revel in it, not deny it

I'm really not here to defend all things KU, but what does employee theft and/or embezzlement have to do with this?  I can't wait to see the tenuous leap you make...

I mean, KU was turning final four tickets into cash in the pockets of the guys that ran one of the biggest AAU programs in country. An AAU program the produced the following recruits:
Quote
summer traveling teams financed by the Pump brothers have featured at least nine players who went on to play for the Jayhawks. Among them were nationally recruited players Mario Chalmers, David Padgett, Omar Wilkes, Tyrel Reed, Elijah Johnson, Jeff Withey, Travis Releford and Brady Morningstar.

Finally, a former player and father of a current player was in the middle of it.

If KSU was as good at this stuff as KU is I would embrace it and brag about it rub it in people's faces.

The notion that KU basketball was nothing until Larry Brown took over is comical.  K-State was a very good basketball school up until the 1990's.  Don't blame KU for your program's failures.

goEMAW directive 1.1.1:  K-State Athletics should cheat at every possible circumstance using the most covert and plausibly deniable methodologies.

Beems . . . this has been the stance of this forum and most of its members since day 1.   We are solely laying the blame on our coaches, admins and boosters for not adjusting to ensure K-State b-ball's continued viability and success.

You know this.

Not one single person has said ku basketball was "nothing" before Larry Brown.

Geez, how sad that your return is marked by so much butthurt.

Maybe that's why we aren't good at it, though.

Imagine if we had someone who'd put as much effort into cheating as oscar puts into excuses.

This Squeaky clean is killing the program.  Need to develop a bad boy image to draw in better players.  Maybe gather at the Ernie Barrett statue for a good pre-game brawl.  Bring along the "Family" wood and use it. :bball:

Tex struggled early, almost got booted like Altman did

A. Altman didn't get "booted."
B. Tex was 17-8 and first (9-3) in Big 7 in his 3rd year.
