What year did we win the conference?

Do you mean 2013 or 2019?

I honestly don't mind the ups and downs. And very much prefer it to being good but not great every year.

2019? Really? I would have guessed at least 3 seasons ago

Just 1.5 seasons ago we were smashing Oklahoma by 15 on senior night.  Pretty wild.

I mean, sure, but maybe the downs could be a little less downy and not consist of losing to HS teams at home?

I agree with most of what's in this thread already, but I think it's important to note that oscar's replacement will not be oscar, so therefore it will be an improvement.  I say that not because I predict more wins and fewer losses, but because of the hatred that I have for oscar and the absence of that hatred for whomever his replacement will be.  I should also note that I don't plan to watch any games (I haven't in years) unless we get good.  So, it's entirely possible I never watch a game let by our next coach, unless KK takes me to the game and lets me sit in the second row at half court again (only game i have been to in 5 years).  I suppose I am most concerned about getting rid of oscar, and who our coach is 2 coaches from now.

don't even care

This is the correct answer.  Anyone that would get me excited is likely unattainable, so who cares.  We're not firing oscar this year.

we gave up on basketball when we hired oscar

yeah, this is my thing too. I don't even really know what it is about him other than him sucking (that might be it). I will say that I was never really a BB fan anyway, but he has really just sucked whatever I had out of me. Feel bad for my kid though. He loves it and I never even think to turn on the games.

Isn't there an AI program we can purchase to take care of this?  Can't we do that and buy all the players iPads or something?

What about Kelvin Sampson?

He's kind of the Huggiest hire amirite?

Kelvin is just the type of renegade, bend the rules hc needed to bring cat hoops back to prominence. He's 65 years old tho.

Someone who knows (because I have no clue) needs to compile a dossier of renegade hc types stat. Guys with show cause, whatever. Gimme goddamn Jerry Tarkanian.

It was some extra phone calls, that's it, that's the story.

FWIW, Huggins never had NCAA issues either.

Kelvin is the best suggestion, by far, but other than being a successful head basketball coach, there are no further parallels between the two of them.

100% fact is that the replacement will be a friend or actual relative of Gene so look at who his friends are, pick the bets one.

In the tradition of Snyder and Wefald, he will absolutely make himself and his friends wealthy off of KSU because he's old as crap and this is his last stop.  He is going to Les Miles our faces off.

I know he's had some pretty severe discipline problems in the past and his tournament resume could be better, but I think Bill self could be very successful in Manhattan under the watchful eye of taytay.

self is an interesting name to have surfaced. Ultimately i'm not sure he would be worth the risk because i think the long term damage he could cause to the image of our program might outweigh the immediate on-court success.

I think Self is a victim of circumstances more than anything else.  That program has always been a cess pool, he probably hates having to run such a dirty team.
