Good in that it frees up a scholarship for a Big 12 caliber athlete. McDermott missed on Mann and Eikmaier and now he gets a chance to immediately correct the mistakes. Eikmaier's quote to the media said it all, "I would have to improve my strength significantly to compete at this level.......(basically 'I don't belong at this level')".
Both great kids and good students I'm sure, but when you look at even the 2nd tier of Big 12 teams like OK State and Missouri you can see how much we have to improve athletically to compete.
We just got one mess cleaned up why would we want to start another?
Exactly what do you mean by that? Nothing's been "cleaned up" here. It's still a mess. And Gilispie turned Texas A&M around in very short order. In Melvin Watkins' last year at A&M, they went winless in the Big 12. So Gilispie had that mess to clean up. And he had them in the tournament real soon after...Just sayin'.
