Thanks. I expect Tulsa's BTW to have another great season, so I'll at least have updates on Trey Phipps to share.

As long as this is a Bryce thread, however, Bill Haisten did a great column back in January on his work ethic...

Quote:
When he was a fifth-grader, Bryce Thompson approached his father with a proposal ó to set an alarm for 5 a.m. so they could be in a gym for an hour of shooting and basketball drills before the start of the school day.

Bryce didnít want to suggest it as a one-time thing, but as an everyday thing.

The response of his dad, Rod Thompson: ďI told him I was fine with it, but that he had to be the one who set the alarm. He had to get himself out of bed and get himself ready. If I had to pull him out of bed, it wasnít happening.Ē
Spoiler: Six years later, his morning alarm remains frozen on 5 oíclock.

I doubt BT was anywhere neoar the Thunder players or staff. That would automatically get OU basketball the death penalty, given how the NCAA like to punish teams.

I read a report elsewhere that said Thompson thoroughly enjoyed his visit and had a great time hanging out with the team.

Went well from what I heard.

Think nba free agent presentation setup. Different phases over the visit.

There will be minimal, if any, punishments for KU. Book it.

No. I think it has a lot to do with it.

IF he were to sign with Ku....... there would be an opt out if penalties come.

The NCAA took almost 2.5 years to fully investigate, rule, and hear appeals on Lousiville. Why do we think this will be any faster?

Because KU Was notified 2 months ago. Maybe just wishful thinking.

FBI did the work for them.

Knowing the NCAA, they never do the obvious thing. UNC should be no more, and they got nothing. SMU got the death penalty for stuff every team from OU to USC to Bama was doing. Penn State got nothing for covering up a racist for decades. Baylor, same thing, pretty much. Seems they have no logical method of punishment, so I may not want any skin in their game. Lol

I get that, but NC State was also notified in July, and according to reports 4 other schools will be notified. 6 Investigations at once, even with the FBI help, will take a while. Bryce will probably be in the league by the time this is settled

Lack of institutional control says otherwise.

Meyer put his crystal ball in for BT to Kansas. Itís over. Now I really hope we beat KU many times the next few seasons. Too bad he doesnít wanna play with his teammate and fatherís teammate. OU could get him just as far as KU when it comes to development and winning.

Well hopefully KU gets put on some probation and it allows him to transfer without sitting out

If he chooses KU, he is making the decision he thinks is best for him. Obviously not the choice any of us want him to make, but we can't pretend like KU doesn't have a great tradition of winning and putting players in the NBA. It's not as if he would be passing us over in favor of some run of the mill program. Hopefully he ends up picking the good guys, but I'll feel just fine about our future even if he doesn't.
