RE: NBC CUSA Basketball Preview
The months-old news out of Norfolk that "intriguing addition" Greg McClinton is out for the season apparently has not yet made its way to NBCSports. This leaves us thin in the front court.

Nonetheless, bring on basketball season!

Not as thin as Western. Western has the injury prone Kansas GT 6'9 Dwight Coleby and 6'6 Justin Johnson. Before you ask..nope I didn't leave anyone else out. Still waiting on the NCAA to clear 6'9 Moustapha Diagne.

To go with those 2 inside players Western has 6 guards to go with them...8 players total with 1 walk-on and 6'9 Moustapha Diagne waiting on the NCAA

You think Adidas "under the tablers" had anything to do with him leaving WKU ?

Ha, I don't think this kid would have a clue or smart enough to even get paid by anyone...If he did get paid he would be sitting out this season to play next year and making bank at Kansas, an "addidas school"...That's my guess where he thought he was going when he left WKU, now at Kansas he probably had a good offer of money on the table...

Don't have a clue on MR and I was one of the very few, maybe the only one, that didn't want him at Western . Of course at first I did but mid July with some of the stuff linked to his twitter...I would have been happy if he never set foot on campus. I especially didn't want him in Aug. when he did not report with the rest of his teammates. I don't care for 1 and done and that goes for the GT's that Western had 3 of last year and 2 this season. They are mostly selfish players. Or they wouldn't have left the past school.

The one thing I do know...Western let Russel off the hook for $700,000 a year over the next 4. To sign with Nike for about half that. Nike is what coach Stansbury wanted. Yes Russel was getting out of the gear game but other schools still have remaining deals. So Western could have keep them under contract for the 4 years. Why the AD of a school that struggles with budget would let $1,200,000 just fly out the door is concerning to me.

Couple things when it comes to Russell. There is only 1 school with a remaining deal in place and that is Southern Miss who expires this summer. Georgia Tech left them as well. If you are referring strictly to basketball then I can assure you that Russell was paying them pennies on the dollar for what WKU was getting from them.

We aren't losing that much with Nike. We are getting roughly $450,000 a year from Nike. While still a little bit of a pay cut...we also get some other incentives such as additional fan apparel which generates more revenue in licensing fees to go along with accessories such as shoes etc at a bigger discount then what we were paying to just have a shoe deal with Nike.
