They seen to get along fine. To be honest it doesn't really matter what t Boone thinks anymore in the sense that he has already gave his money for all the facilities and Gundys huge successes over the past few years have given him the power.



Right so you're saying T-Boone does not have his own office in the athletic department building?

You guys are crazy on the Arky board. But the honest truth, Arky will get the leftover coach behind UT and AU. You guys need to realize what you're working with, and it's not a top 5-10 coaching job.

December '07 SEC Rant called, they're suing you for plagiarism.

I'm not trashing arky its a good school and a good job. It's not a top 10 job and it is a second tier job in the SEC. It's not a job that a guy is going to leave his dream job for and burn the bridge with his alma mater.

Realistic coaching candidates for arky from the big 12 are tubbs and briles. I

Everything in this is true. If you view the SEC in 3 tiers we are in the second tier in football. You could easily make the case we are first tier in total athletics but that is not the issue being discussed.

I wouldn't be upset with Tubbs or Briles, we could do much worse than either. I'm also not in the camp that thinks Patterson will give us very serious consideration, all things considered he is probably the most compensated coach in the nation.

This is much like me saying I'm in the midst of raising $10MM in initial round financing. They might be asking, but they ain't gettin'.

The big thing they're pushing is for the school to be deeded property and mineral rights in alumni wills. They've got $700MM to go to reach that Billion, I expect them to frick it up well before they ever reach $550MM in the endowment.


This is the last thing I am going to say on the matter, but I have no idea where you are getting those numbers. You're like this guy we used to have on OrangePower who claimed everything OSU did was some kind of financial conspiracy (Vodnik was his name). Oklahoma State is in the best financial shape, as a university, it has ever been in. And last I checked, the university has far more than $300 million in fundraising; it's well over $500 million.

But like I said, I'm not going to argue because you obviously don't have a clue.

I got my #'s directly from the Foundation's Annual report. I'm always a phone call away from sitting down with basically anyone in OSU's administration short of Holder.

Y'all better prepare thy anuses, if you guys can't keep Gundy, 80 years of pre-Jimmy Johnson football will return to Stillwater.

Oh I'm preparing big guy


I'm even entertaining the thought of losing to a Big East team at home and almost losing to a C-USA powerhouse like Tulsa at home as well.

Oh those would be the days

Pure chaos
