I can't wait for Shaka to leave VCU. Those smug fans on their messages board think he's never leaving.

Let DePaul stay!!

The phrase "at least we're not DePaul" kept me from physically harming myself and potentially others over the past two years.

Jonathan Williams III is transferring from Mizzou. Dude is a 6'9" beast that would fill the 3/4 spot easily. Averaged 11/7 last year.

Oklahoma State basketball: Sources say OSU considering buyout of men's basketball coach Travis Ford

The cost of firing Ford: at least $9.6 million – the full remainder owed from a 10-year contract extension given to the coach in September of 2009.
by John Helsley Published: March 30, 2015

STILLWATER — Always a source of discussion and debate outside the program, Travis Ford’s job status has become an issue inside at Oklahoma State.

Multiple sources have told The Oklahoman that OSU is considering a buyout of the basketball coach’s rich contract. Key word: considering.

The cost of firing Ford: at least $9.6 million – the full remainder owed from a 10-year contract extension given to the coach in September of 2009. It’s a sizable sum that serves as a deterrent to making a change, considering the school would then have to pay Ford’s replacement. And with the average Big 12 basketball coaching salary – among public schools – at $2.6 million, OSU could have as much as $5 million tied up in its basketball position next year and throughout the terms of Ford’s deal, which runs through 2019.

Consider, too, that athletic director Mike Holder is committed to building a new baseball stadium, with plans well underway on that project.

Still, more than a week after the Cowboys’ season ended with a loss in an NCAA Tournament opener for the third straight year, a movement among boosters pushing for a change has Holder at least examining the possibility, according to the sources.

Outside money might be necessary to prompt Ford’s dismissal – and may, according to sources, be accumulating among donors to at least assist in a potential buyout. It is believed that OSU would remain responsible for the majority of what is owed Ford.

Holder has not responded to requests for comment. And his stance historically has been that he won’t discuss personnel matters. Efforts to reach Ford also failed.

OMG, I think my head's going to explode. No disrespect to Wes or 'Zar, but come on.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but you think Ellenson next year is going to be better than Wesley and Lazar turned out to be? I meant what they turned into, not what they were as freshmen.

I agree that Heisenberg seems obsessed with this, but I don't disagree with his general thesis:

The daughter is a spoiled little $hit who perhaps broke NCAA rules and almost surely crossed ethical lines.

Her father should care because it reflects poorly on him -- in addition to just being a crappy thing to do. I have a grown daughter and would not tolerate such behavior from her. But she isn't a spoiled little $hit so it never would have been an issue.

Now ... time to move on.

I'm not saying Bo shouldn't care what his daughter says in public. He most certainly should discuss this with her and get on the same page. I take issue with Heisenberg's use of the word control when talking about Bo's relationship with his adult daughter. It may have just been poor word choice but it comes across as domineering and at least a little misogynistic.

Also, how exactly could Bo Ryan's daughter break NCAA rules when she is not an athlete or employed by UW?

That's not investing, that's gambling.

Not necessarily.

In Jan 2014, I bought Kraft Foods, a solid, boring, dividend-paying company; it had been knocked down after a disappointing earnings report. Since then, through some ebbs and flows, its price moved up about 20% in the 14 months or so I owned it -- pretty nice but not a rocket ship to the stars given that we're now in Year 7 of a bull market.

Then, last week, Warren Buffett and a private equity partner decided to buy Kraft and merge it with Heinz, another old, "boring" company that he bought and took private last year.

In less than a week since the news, Kraft has shot up from $61 to $90, and my original investment is up 73%. That's not some cutting edge biotech or a risky solar venture or anything crazy like that. It's a freakin' mac & cheese company!

Buying Kraft wasn't a real gamble. It's a solid, old-world, blue-chip company. But I nonetheless was rewarded handsomely for having patience and not selling during its ebbs.

I also take exception to those who think we can't learn from each other even though we aren't "financial professionals." Many of us have real life experience in a variety of things. Thinking that way is like a former prep basketball player thinking he alone has some special insight into how college hoops works.

My mind is always open to new ideas. If I decide they don't suit me, I just say thanks and move on to the next one.

Probably not. But he could be a Wesley Matthews or Lazar Hayward caliber player, and I think that'd be enough.

Good man. Austin is a terrible place.

I'll take the food in Austin over Milwaukee every day of the week and twice on Sundays.  And the weather 8 out of 12 months of the year.
