  • For years people have hated on Bob Lutz and I was one that did not like some of the articles he wrote. In hindsight they were factual and because we were really bad when he was the beat writer they rubbed me the wrong way. He always responded to his critics that he could not write as a fan of WSU but as a journalist. Puts you in kind of a tough spot caught between local Shocker enthusiasts and his journalistic integrity. I admire his passion for sports which does include WSU and his love of the Cardinals. Mostly I admire what he is doing to promote his biggest love...baseball. Here is a man that has started a league of baseball for kids and families that would otherwise not have the opportunity to play and benefit from this exposure. He has given the city of Wichita one more thing that we can point to with pride. One thing can be said of him he does not suffer fools. Just listen to his afternoon radio broadcast. I make no apologies for him but he is unique and has passion at what he does

      Well said... Bob’s ‘League 42’ is outstanding.
      I’ve never had a problem with Bob and have learned to enjoy “The Drive”. The banter between Bob and Jeff is mostly entertaining.

  • My guess is that it's not intentional, but a lot of the banter between Bob and Jeff is much like Don Imus used to do. I wonder only because I suspect Bob and the "I Man" differ in about everything they think and do and it's probably the last person he'd want to be compared to, at least philosophically.

    I enjoy the Drive with the exception of the music discussion. But to each his own. And his work with League 42 is amazing and he should be commended for it.

    • It looks like Missouri State is getting its act together finally. Dana Ford is going the Musselman route and has done a tremendous job revamping the lineup, pulling in grad transfers of note from WVU (Lamont West) and CSU (Anthony Bonner) added to transfers from Nevada and Middle Tennessee who are eligible this season. They also landed 6-9 post Gaige Prim (who was the leading scorer and rebounder on Trey Wade's South Plains team and 1st Team JUCO AA) and a couple of three-star prep kids. They should dominate inside against MVC competition with the newcomers added to first team all-MVC PF Tulio Da Silva.

        Good for them. There is no reason for them to not dominate that league with the support and resources they have.

        Ford will be gone in 2 - maybe 3 - years. Maybe 1 if he makes the tourney in 2020.

    • Not BB related but SWOMO has a new football coach.

      It was originally posted that Art Briles was the pick but I imagine that the AD tossed that out there so that the actual hire looked better by comparison.

      This does bring Petrino back to the Ozarks so he can enjoy long solo motorcycle rides winding through the hollers.

      One quick note before we present the rankings: With Wichita State’s move to the American Athletic Conference, the Shockers have moved out of the mid-major club. We wish the Shockers well against Cincinnati, UConn, SMU, and more.

        • Love me some motorcycle rides through them Ozark hollers. Mostly in AR though, not much in MO.

                That is quite a story! At least they have plenty of wood to chop in Missouri!

                • A little scandal never stopped Pitino from anything and Larry Brown left a lot of schools to clean up his mess.

                  • It's widely circulated that at UNC when one meanders to the facilities to drop a deuce, one is said to be taking an LB.

                    Great coach. Big time cheater. Everywhere.

                      At least Petrino didn't have an affair with a porn star.

                        No, that's perfectly fine. In fact, that will get you endorsed by practically the entire evangelical community. And a lot of crimes are OK too. Really, there are no standards anymore.
