The "bare cupboard" conspiracy is a flimsy excuse to cover for a poor coaching job - PERIOD.

Ford gets my polite, appreciative applause, then I root to kick his everlovin' ass for the rest of the night.....
Agreed. I was pissed for a few days when Ford left the way he did, but once things settled down and I was able to see things objectively, I realized that, realistically, he couldn't refuse the huge salary bump he was getting. You could look at it as a bit of bad luck on our part - the coaching candidate pool was shallow that year, and like him or not, he was a good coach (and one that we could have benefited from for a few more years, at least) and OSU recognized that and threw boatloads of money at him to get him. For me, there is no ill will.
I also think coaches (i.e. McCall) take note of how we treat our former coaches (and players). I'd frankly applaud for any coach that we've had. DK may not have been my favorite but I don't blame him for continuing to accept contracts, no one forced them. Even Lappas was a disaster but UMass hired him. Ford got an outrageous offer and if you read the linked articles he really liked Amherst. I'd leave my job in a heartbeat if someone doubled my salary.

There is no reason to be upset with Ford for taking the Oklahoma State job. Better paycheck and a better league, it’s a step up for his resume.

With all that said, I would still boo him because our crowd needs to feel young again.

With the huge size difference, I don’t get why McCall is playing only one big guy.

I know we have won some nice games, but this team needs Holloway.

Amazing. Down only 2 and we don’t have a defensive rebound yet!

Agree - and we need a time out to get them more settled.
