Trilly Donovan reporting one unexpected Big East coach is unhappy in his current situation and if Shaka has been exposed to Scoop, it’s easy to deduce he would be unhappy


Is it possible he reads Scoop and sold his Disney stock? He's upset he took that advice and cost him lots of money?

Could be.  Scoop chasing Shaka away.  Sad!
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Well, it's that and the fact that Shaka hitched his wagon to Stevie, who we all now know is dung.
The shaka sign, sometimes known as "hang loose", is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii and surf culture.

Yes Al could have let him play another month or so, Chones did not want to leave, money would have been there after the season

One thing I've always wondered about the way Chones' departure happened. There is no doubt that money was be passed to players in that era, and I choose to accept that it likely happened at MU like it did at UCLA and elsewhere. How was there not some cash around that would help Jim and his family make it through the next few months? I get that he had a time-limited ABA contract offer, but surely he would've had another one, and/or one from the NBA a few months later. MU surely would've benefited, and Chones himself may have earned a bigger contract by being a key part of what could've been a national championship team. I suppose that idea of taking immediate money rather than risking injury could be valid, but that would surprise me.

Thoughts?

I've always said this but the people who were around back then just quote Al's statement about Chones' refrigerator.

Never saw that! Very insightful and pretty much from the horse's mouth. Thanks, Dr. Blackheart.

It will stop me from wondering about why he left. Of course, I'll keep wondering about what MU would've done that season if he had stayed.

1.  National championship, here we come.
2.  We are entitled to a national championship.
3.  MU wins:  See? 
4.  MU loses:  OMG.  Worst team ever.  Coach/player/rwcruiting/poster/scoop all suck.    Let me mewl in peace.
5.  MU bounces back with a win:   MU still sucks.   Wins don't matter.   Only my pain from losses matters.
6.  Anybody who disagrees with my pain is an a-hole.
7.   What is our seed going to be?   OMG, everybody hates MU!   
8.  MU vs everybody!   I love this team.   Anybody who loves MU differently than me is an a-hole.   Haters!
9.  Tourney time!   National Championship, here we come!
10.  MU loses:   lather, rinse, repeat.

Me:   Thanks for sharing the journey and making me laugh.

Thinking that MU fans as a group are different than fans of any other program is myopic.

Every team has fans who are never happy and some who are not happy unless they are criticizing other fans who react to things differently than they do.
