It'll be VERY interesting to see how much of a raise she received.

Gotta love KU. Give crap coaches extensions left and right. Fatgino, now this lady. And Self isnt the highest paid coach in the Big12. What a crock.

Think outside the box, neworleans. If these coaches happen to not work out, doesn't it make a good candidate more attracted to the job(s) seeing how well-paid and taken care of the coaches are?

Did you expect Bonnie to immediately take Kansas to the Final Four? She took over the worst team in the Big 12, broke it down, and now she's builing it up. Heck, they hung with a lot of good Big 12 teams this year, including Oklahoma. They won at Texas.

Baby steps. Gotta crawl before you walk.

Having McCray on the floor at the beginning of this season will make them instantly BETTER than last year! She has shown she can score and rebound. This team was extremely competitive with all freshman and no McCray (leg injury) at the beginning of the year. I don't think the Seniors played that much early either. So now they bring a true big at 6'5 and then a 6'2 big that can knock down 3's which can/should help with doubles in the post. Plus another guard that is 'shaq' like and the freshman now have a year under their belt!

I see nothing wrong with what Lew did. He knew where this program was when he took the controls here at KU (Rock bottom and NOT competitve). If that man thought this program should have been turned in 3 yrs or didn't like what Bonnie was doing this would not have happened. Lew doesn't seem like the guy to just let people slide.

Good work Bonnie and Lew...looking forward to next season, it will be here before we know it.

GO KU....thoughts and prayers to VT

As much as I believe in the NFL "policy" of "what you can do for us NOW and not what you have done in the PAST", do any of you hatters realize Bonnie's past success at VT? 7/7 seasons winning 20 or more games,7 post-season appearances, and a 152-62 record. Admittedly thats not an outstanding resume by any means, but far above the expectations of KU womens basketball. This tells me if she can get the players, she can coach and more importantly win.

I know. Just thought I'd be reasonable here for a minute.
