its about 10 minutes now until a press conference is supposed to begin at kansas, "regarding the basketball program."
these kinds of things arent usually called to announce a coach is leaving. so the presumption here is the pc involves bill self--a contract extension, a raise, plans to begin working on a new facade for allenfieldhouse, some sprucing up of jayhawk towers and anything else bill wanted and related to ad lew perkins in meetings today and tuesday.
this of course means the reality is that the fantasy that self would 'go home' to oklahoma state is just that--fantasy. a source told me today that self met with osu ad mike holder in kansas last night. i'd guess bill's 15-minute meeting with perkins tuesday was to clue him in to that. id also guess that bill found out the numbers flying around about a mega-offer were also bits of fluff.
the billy gillispie speculation? may be wrong here. but an osu source has repeatedly told me billy clyde ain't on the list. and he's told me a couple of times recently that him going to osu "isnt going to happen." again, i ask why would he? the same question i asked about self. to some it isnt all about money. and to my thinking the godfather thing makes some guys in the profession squeamish.--mike jones.
