Or how about Pierce really goes home and signs with the Warriors?
Might it also help his energy to play with so many young guns?
I didn’t know Nike was big in soccer? Thought it was all Adidas.
But let’s say you are right… and let’s say Nike gets indicted in this… might it bring attention to what goes on in college sports and Nike’s influence?
What I take from all of this is that if the American justice department is willing to go after FIFA, can it be long before they try to clean up college basketball?
The DOJ must have played hard with Switzerland to get them on board in this raid. Pretty ballsy stuff if you ask me.
@dylans lol - agree on "whiny and annoying". And recruiting. I guess I just figured if someone was a really good coach, I’d like to have him on our sidelines. But there are plenty of non whiny & annoying ones to go around!
He will need to put on some weight. I saw Tyshawn at a book signing in Overland Park and I was shocked on how skinny he was.

I think folks forget that Oubre stepped into a spot vacated by Wiggins and almost made us forget about what we lost there. The fact that Oubre performed so well in the same system as Wiggins speaks volumes to me.
If he’s not a lottery pick, it’s a huge mistake.
3 of 4 games sold out at Kauffman Stadium vs Detroit. Cain will get 3 days off by dropping his suspension before Sun game-time to heal. Vargas vs Salad Jar (Salazar) Tues nite at 7:10 p. Haven’t lost more than 2 straight so far & don’t expect it now. On to Detroit next weekend for another showdown. Pet detective should be available by then. Maybe Holland also. Tigers are real tuff on southpaws.
@DanR I’m so jealous!!! I’m glad u had fun! Brooks is having date night he usually starts the thread. We should do a new one each game or series. We usually just have a few, last pm was food night and globals crazy sayings! We’re a fun group though!
We play Michigan State next year in the Champ Classic and if rumors are true we will be playing UK in the Big12/SEC showdown in late January. If that holds true I’d expect a return game at the others court the follwoing season so that would put us playing UK next year (2015-16) and the year after (2016-17). So I’d guess Duke is our foe in the 2016 Champ Classic.
Boone may just buy the NCAA.
There is no reason it cannot be put up for sale.
And frankly, at this point, with it apparently gone weak in the investigative knees due apparently to the chill of the OBannon case, maybe the best antidote for the PetroShoeCo-agent complex jockeying would be for them to have to deal with Boone.
Give Boone five years in control of the NCAA and he would own both Nike AND adidas, and there wouldn’t be any more of these god awful adidas uniforms anymore, or anymore asymmetric talent distributions.
And all the arenas would run off wind power electricity.
And in very short order he would take over ESPN and CBS Sports and probably turn on Big Gaming and have them begging not to be raided and their assets sold off. Hell, Boone would wring all the fat out of Big Gaming. No more casinos and all that unnecessary monument building shizz. He would stream line big gaming to some CPUs and lot of subsurface storage in some desert somewhere, and then call all the intel organizations and all the narco-trafficers in and say something like, “Boys, the days of laundering black a dirty monies in sports betting for free are over. I am your banker now. And when we get this streamlined its going to cost you less than before and you’re going to launder more because of it.”
Just kidding. The above is only joking around.
And glad the Pokes basketball caught a break.

I hope our girls spank their girls…
The game will be streamed at 3:00 PM via the SEC/ESPN Network, for any one interested although it is currently on rain delay.
@dylans WOW! Baseball sized hail is pretty dang scary! I hope everyone is safe and that any damage you sustained is taken care of quickly. Yikes!
The biggest reason why Cal isn’t going to NOLA is they won’t give him full control of the personnel on the team. Cleveland was interested in Cal last year, but Cal knew he had a special group coming back and wanted a shot at going undefeated. This year, Cal was legitimately interested in the NOLA job, but Benson wasn’t going to give Cal everything he wanted ($10 mil/year and control of roster) so Cal passed on the job. Someone will give Cal what he wants in the next couple of years and Cal will go back to the NBA within the next couple of years.
I added a News Feeds category and I pulled feeds from cjonline, kusports and wichita eagle, but only the cjonline one worked correctly. I’m reaching out to Gary Bedore about the kusports feed as I believe it should work with a small change on their end, and I’ll see what I can do about wichita eagle one. This should be a really nice way of pulling our news from other sites in real time without having to manually do it.
