Few is a huge name of course but could he recruit the mid south and TX?
I have to believe any shot of getting Beard even with big money went out the window with making final four. He likely bides his time a touch longer with better money deal in Lubbock unless one of the blue bloods comes open which doesn’t seem case now - or maybe a TX.
Not sure we want to wait a week longer until after final four weekend in any case.
I see the talk of Nevada guy and I’m sure he knows the game but can he recruit the mid south and TX I wonder if even a fit.
Keeping fingers crossed for Sampson who I think would be a great fit for us.
If all of our eggs in basket are on a big name like Sampson at say 4 per year over 5 and there is equivocation - and they think we have nothing but lesser experienced guys on our list, I hope we don’t stick are are prepared to go to 5 and make this happen.
Sampson is a respected national name and home run hire and shot in the arm that program can take a step up perhaps. We know Beard and Buzz have other considerations and not in play.
It’s a completely different feeling about the future to me if we can’t land Sampson.
How about Self, he might be ready to leave Kansas for enough money for a job he really wanted until John White got in the way or does Kansas and JL have him so locked down that he can’t leave? He’s way above some of the guys being mentioned as the next coach.
Guys. I like Mike as much as everyone, but with Mike we know what we will get…frankly after 8 years it isn’t enough. Do we have a great recruiting class coming? The number 1 prospect in the state is going to Kansas. It is time to move on
