Coaches and players deserve credit for championship trophies, not the stuffed shirt selling the skyboxes.

Our b-ball coach won that championship with Frank’s boys.  But he beat KU this year, mostly on the strength of the freshmen and the bench he recruited.  As I said, I’m on board with this guy, but not the AD.  Not going to happen. He showed his true colors a couple of years ago.

So how long till KSU is in DIV II? They got close in 87. Maybe Currie will rise to that challenge.

Can you tell me how he dragged all the sports programs down where he was at before but the coaches and players are the ones doing the work. So if the coaches can coach and the players play you should never hear about the AD. Maybe KU AD was doing crappy job and that is why they lost to West Virginia?

These things take time, Bobert.  See, these guys devote all their energies to building great halls and coliseums… and milking the alums 24-7.  Nothing really to do with “athletics”.  It can’t be done in a year our two.

Currie couldn’t actually FIRE Frank Martin, because he’d done nothing wrong, and was pretty successful at his position.  So, he took the low road.  You can’t maximize your take if you’ve got this imposing, scowling hulk of a man towering over those little farmers and their wallets.  You get a nice little pleasant-looking man with a voice even higher than your own.  THAT’S the way you rake in the dough.

Krause was a wonderful AD….and had excellent connections. No wonder he produced all those championship titles…..:-)

There is no sports forum, so I am creating one here.

I’m not trying to be a smartass but isn’t this the sports forum? When I go to the main page, this is listed as SPORTS in a black bar with General in a green bar underneath it.

I was just saying that if you go to “sports”, you get General or K State. It seems to me that general should not be all sports…or sports at all.

Ah, yeah, the forums could have some slightly more intuitive names.
