    Are you kidding me?

    Pathetic. Day after they win it all, Kansas has to hear about this garbage.

    Why is it pathetic?
     
  3. Re: Bill Selfish?

    Uh, been following sports (or any type of news, really) long?
    That's the way it works.

    And it's pathetic every time. The dude just signed an extension.

    Ah, the Kansas Jayhawks, once again a victim of their own success ...
     
  6. Re: Bill Selfish?

    He signed an extension a year ago. The OSU job was not open at the time. There weren't rumors flying about ridiculous numbers then either.
    Would you prefer the media ignored the issue that EVERYONE (including the Kansas faithful) wants to know about?

    Could be worse. He could have dodged questions last week and made it obvious he was interested.

    Or he could pull a Nick Saban or Roy Williams and dress down reporters for even asking about it, and then take the job anyway ...

    1. Oklahoma State is Self's alma mater.

    2. Oklahoma State is offering him a shitload of money.

    3. If Kansas wants to keep him, they should meet or beat the offer.

    4. A signed "contract extension" means nothing. Nothing.

    5. At least Self didn't dick around looking for other jobs while he was still supposed to be coaching his current team (Hello Nick Saban!! Hello Larry Brown!! ;) ;) ).

    6. If Self leaves, Kansas will get another good coach.

    Re: Bill Selfish?

    Uh, the media isn't the issue. The issue is that Bill Self is willing to jump to Oklahoma State for the money immediately after winning the title with Kansas and one year after signing an extension.
     
  11. Re: Bill Selfish?

    This will not happen. If T. Boone Pickens says he will put up the money to get Self, nobody will be able to match that.
    It may not come down to money, but if it does, Kansas simply cannot win.
     
  12. Re: Bill Selfish?

    Then I apologize for arguing an entirely different point.
    We still disagree, but at least now the disagreement makes more sense.
