  • Unsubstantiated but plausible

    The scenario goes like this: T. Boone Pickens offers Bill Self $40,000,000 over 10 years at OSU. KU begins making contingency plans and feels out Calipari's interest in the KU job.

    Please don't say that Self would never leave KU. Roy left for a lot less than 40mm.

    And here I was hoping KU would go after Mike Cohen. I suppose Steve Eck would be interested as well.

      Totally plausible. Coach Cal is as dirty as they get and would fit in perfectly at KU considering his stint as a JV coach there in the 80s.


      His pretty boy elitist attitude is just what the libs in Lawrence pray for.

        And why would you think most Shox fans would care one way or the other. It's like asking if we care if the Big East adds another 6 teams. It sounds like this is nothing but a "slow day at the office" posting? However, if there are people out there that want to waste time discussing this, go for it. After all, I just wasted a few minutes doing this posting [cause it's a slow day at the office and its almost quitting time].

          Why in the world would Bill Self leave one of the top college jobs ever for Oklahoma State?

              A plus to MT being gone is we no longer are concerned if Self leaves KU. Let's move this to Off Topic, where it belongs.

                If Self wins a NC at Kansas I could see him considering OSU.

                  There will be a lot of coaching search discussion this spring. I think it's OK if it happens here.

                      From what I've heard this year and in previous years, Self is pretty happy where he is now. I don't see him leaving KU unless he gets fired. "Going home" isn't something everyone wants to do, no matter how much money is offered.

                        Self is pretty happy now. But multiple $10M will make him happy too.

                        More money is something more everyones want, no matter how happy they are in their present situation.

                          But next year's KU team looks much different than those teams that have kept Bill happy in the past. I don't think it's likely by any means--and I think Self has, naturally, denied interest in the OSU job--but stranger things have happened.

                            See Mark Turgeon.


                            Now, Bill may learn something from Mark.



                            Bill will get a big pay day sometime...whether it's sooner or later is up to him.

                              Well, the job offer will come towards Self, it's inevitable. Ignoring the impossible pressure that kind of contract would bring to an alma mater coach (and Self's repeated denials), and entertaining your thoughts, say Self does head to OSU.

                              Calipari would never come to KU. He has it all at Memphis. He'll win his conference every year - an elite job with absolutely no pressure. He'd be insane to come here.

                              I'm not sure who KU would get (Izzo? Stallings? Turg? Matta? Miller? Dixon?) but I'm sure he'd be a hell of a coach.
