      I don't have a dog in this fight, but the timing of this has really got to peeve off Self and the Jhawk faithful. I wonder if CBS will ask him about it after the game? Will Self drop an S bomb ala Roy?

      Nice little buyout for Sutton.

        Get paid Self, get paid. I know money isn't everything but it sure don't hurt either.

            One thing is for certain, he is getting paid regardless of where he's coaching next fall.

              He won't leave.
              "If (OSU officials) were to ask me what they should do, I would suggest they go a different direction," Self said during a press conference on Tuesday. "I'm not being remotely disrespectful to my alma mater. My intentions are to be here at Kansas, period."

              Plus, now that they offered this before the National Championship I think that'll turn him off even more.

                Doug Gottlieb reported that they have not contacted him yet about the offer, and do not plan too until after the Championship. Thier AD says they are supporting Coach Self and the Big 12 in the Championship and will not contact him until after the tourney as to try not to step on toes.

                I think hiring away a coach from within your conference, whenever you do it, would be considered stepping on toes.

                    KU is only one of the top 5 jobs in college basketball coaching, who wouldn't want to leave there to go to Oklahoma State and get fired after 2 seasons if your team isn't up to par? :roll: Personally, I'd care more about winning than money and I'm sure Lew Perkins will up Bill's salary after this year to around $2 million per season anyway.

                      I can tell from this that he's pretty happy with his job at KU. I mean, KU is only one of the top 5 jobs in college basketball, who wouldn't want to leave there to go to Oklahoma State and get fired after 2 seasons if your team isn't up to par? :roll:

                          Then get hired where? Jacksonville State? Seems like he'd be getting a bigger paycheck to stay at KU for the rest of his career than 2-3 years at OSU and get fired. They fired Sean Sutton after 2 years! His team even got better last season and they still fired him. I think the OSU job is a dead-end job where he'll be lucky to finish 4th in the Big 12 year in and year out. KU is a place where he'll have less work recruiting and will be at the top of D-1 basketball year in and year out.

                            Of course, but look at it this way:

                            Bill takes the OSU job and gets fired after 3 years, similar to Sean Sutton. He gets $16 million in those years but then has to take a job that pays $100,000 a year in a smaller conference due to his struggles at OSU. OSU is a dead end job, it'll take 5 years just to get it back to the top 3 in the Big 12 south. He'll be fired long before that.

                            Or

                            He stays at KU and gets $2 million a year plus bonuses for going to the Elite 8, Final Four, National Title game and being in multiple commercials and ads. Plus, he's constantly getting raises after his contracts run out every 3-5 years.

                            Seems to me that the money would be better staying at KU instead of leaving and going to OSU where job security is slim. You just know that those OSU fans and ol' T. Boone will get restless when Bill doesn't win with the band of scrubs they have on that roster.

                              That all might be true, except for the fact that Bill Self is not going to lose, no matter where he goes. He would absolutely not ever be fired from OSU (especially after only 3 years)

                              Bill Self is a much better coach than what you're giving him.
