Holy Moly what a day in College B-ball

  • And its not over… probably not even close

    Barnes to UT wow never thought he’d move that quickly

    Shaka in cohoots with Texas. We could be facing 2 teams that play havoc D. why why why

    Mullin new coach at St. Johns. Hopefully its too late to impact Diallo’s decision

    Cronin of Cincinati can return to coaching, nice to hear that.

    Turner goes pro for UT, no surprise Harrell & Rozier gone from Louisville. The tandem from LSU gone (Martin & Mickey) Gill transfers as well when he could start next year at Louisville?

    Self meeting with Thorne Jr’s parents… Slip him a $20 Bill but don’t tell anyone, j/k.

    Slo-Mo Niang returns. booo go play in Europe instead of averaging 25 against KU. You know another year of that is on its way.

    Numerous transfers…

    Does it get anymore crazy???

  • Drexel wing Damion Lee told ESPN he plans to graduate in June and play immediately at another school in the fall.

    Damion Lee

  • @BeddieKU23 Good for Barnes. He stated someone in the Texas Athletic Department leaked the info on firing assistants or else. That is what he is most upset with. He wouldn’t fire his assistants even though they offered. Good luck at UT. Maybe he can trip up UK now and then.

  • Here’s whats crazy. I live near LSU, so I can’t help but notice what they’re doing. Mickey and Martin are really good players as sophomores. They’re not first round material from what I’ve heard. As you know LSU is bringing in a loaded recruiting class. Talk about a good situation! A couple of experienced juniors to go with the loaded recruits. They’d be FF material. But forget that. LSU will be fun to watch, but no real threat unless Simons can carry a team like Carmelo did.

  • @BeddieKU23 Barnes back to UTexas?

  • @wissoxfan83

    They both felt threatened their playing time would be taken by Simmons.

  • Marshall meeting with alabama…oh boyy

  • @HawksWin Tennessee

  • @HawksWin Tennessee. Wife is a grad.

  • What about the Hoiberg-to-Bulls rumor?

  • @ralster Didn’t hear that. He can coach in the NBA, imho. I also believe he demonstrated to Self that his coaching fits the college game, but not the ever-morphing roster of an NBA team. The reality is (so far) that Self’s SYSTEM is what works. Would love to keep Hoiberg in the league.

    And Texas is just damn crazy if they are not all in on Greg Marshall.

    Here’s my top 10 in order of guys I’d like to have at Kansas.

    1. Izzo
    2. K
    3. Calipari
    4. Pitino
    5. Donovan
    6. Bo Ryan
    7. Greg Marshall
    8. Sean Miller
    9. Larry Brown
    10. Roy Williams

    Just for the fun of it :)

  • @Blown Scratch 3, please…Why would you want a guy that left two programs in shambles after he left? I’ve got a bad feeling UK will regret having him IF he ever leaves.

  • @ralster I didn’t think he’d ever return to the NBA due to his heart condition. I don’t think the pace of the NBA is good for his health.

  • @Blown You forgot Self on that list… what number was he again?

  • @approxinfinity Man, that Izzo is a scrapper! Longhorns should forget about Shaka and Marshall, offer 6 million per year to Izzo.

  • @REHawk Best in the business. He needs to find a way to beat K on Saturday.

  • @approxinfinity 1 Self, 2 Larry brown

  • Self needs to make sure the kids we have that are going to leave, please decide quickly. Late decisions put us out of the running of a lot of talent we could sign.

  • I am under the opinion that Hoiberg is supposed to undergo another operation soon and the outcome will determine if he has potential to go to the NBA.

  • @REHawk

    “Man, that Izzo is a scrapper! Longhorns should forget about Shaka and Marshall, offer 6 million per year to Izzo.”

    Please… don’t give those cowboys any ideas! Izzo to Texas would solidify a new Jayhawk conference streak… longest drought period for Kansas!

  • @drgnslayr but you don’t care about conference championships, anyway, right?

  • @BeddieKU23

    “Marshall meeting with alabama…oh boyy”

    Suddenly… he doesn’t seem to like being a Shocker! I guess they sold lots of tshirts marking their victory over KU down in Wichita. Better get them shirts now because it might be another 50 years before playing and beating Kansas again!

    Here is a question no one is asking yet:

    Who will get the job at WSU? Their coaching door gets more action than a door at a Nevada brothel!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I’m the guy who DOES care about conference titles! Remember… I’m the guy who wouldn’t trade our streak for a NC!

  • Now word breaks that Travis Ford’s job might be in jeopardy. Does that Okie oil man plan to sweeten the pot for Gregg Marshall? Maybe he is toying with Koch Bros. Or toying with Bill Self!

  • @drgnslayr

    The names I brought up in another thread to replace would be Ron Hunter, now that his son went pro. And Brad Underwood from SF Austin who’s made the tourney the last 2 years. Either they go for a mid-major on the rise or try and pluck a bigger fish from another school. Who knows its contingent on what he does.

    I can’t really see him taking that Alabama job, its nothing special in the SEC that is entirely a football school. He could be doing this to sweeten his deal with Wichita, more leverage to negotiate now that he’s beaten KU. But if they are offering up some serious G’s then maybe money will talk.

  • @REHawk

    I’d be happy with Ford being gone, but not to be replaced by Marshall. No win situation it seems

  • @REHawk

    “Does that Okie oil man plan to sweeten the pot for Gregg Marshall?”

    Gosh… now I know where Marshall gets his frenetic personality from… his agent!


    Interesting choices. I need to read up!

  • @drgnslayr And I’m a gal right along side of you.


  • @BeddieKU23 I think he’s playin too!

  • Can’t wait to see what awaits today’s rollercoaster ride in College Basketball. Will any of the news be KU related?

    Bragg threw down a nasty dunk last night at the All American challenge.

    Wiggins had the dunk of the year over Gobert of Utah. Wish I had video handy.

  • @BeddieKU23 wigs had more than one, nasty!! Fun to watch! Bragg looks like a great player and kid.

  • Wigs also got smoked in what might be the worst smoke in the last 10 yrs in the league.

    What I like about Wigs… that won’t slow him down a bit!

    I think he has already proven my point that Cleveland made a Bowie-like NBA mistake!

  • @drgnslayr are you talking about wigs getting dunked on?

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Yep… I’ll go look for it and change this post to the visuals…

    Here it is:

    Andrew Wiggins and Rudy Gobert played a little game of Dunk, Dunk, Block

    Go down to the very bottom. Wigs was very successful in this game, but had one major setback!

    The still photography from this block is actually better than the video.

  • @drgnslayr I saw it, wasn’t near as sweet as wiggins 2 over him, plus wigs didn’t flex over him, then wigs just did it to him again.

  • A few news to report so far. Been quiet so after a frenzy Monday.

    Barnes official to Tenn.

    Word is Shaka Smart hasn’t officially had talks with Texas yet.

    Transfer U Midwest (Iowa St) lost their assistant that was responsible for getting the transfers to St. Johns staff. Could impact Iowa St as they look for more players. I see they have reached out to Trey Lewis from Green Bay transfer.

    Goodman and co reporting over 200 transfers already!

    I’m sure the afternoon will heat up…

  • @approxinfinity Self is already our coach. He is excluded from this list.

  • @truehawk93 if he leaves UK In shambles, I’ll take him off. Until then I’ll take him.

  • @Blown Ok…I get it, he’s innocent until proven guilty. I don’t hate the guy, but sorry two bad programs after he leaves is enough for me. I won’t take him at all.
