Iím fine with that as long as:

a) next yearís team is an improvement over the previous two years, meaning OU is a legitimate candidate to compete for a conference title and make the dance without being part of a bubble discussion. Mediocrity is not my idea of what OUís basketball program is about.

b) Lon doesnít expect to appoint a coach in waiting for his job!

Oh good... Lon is going to ride into the sunset at OU. Has absolutely no further ambitions.

That's a quality we need at OU.

Clown post

Just because he doesnít want UCLA job, doesnít mean heís just chilling collecting checks.

Highly competitive people donít do that. If you think that, you donít understand athletics in general.

I'm glad this is Lon's last stop. He just needs to do better before he turns in his whistle for good.

He said this last year on a half hour special on CBSSN. His quote was that he didnít know how long he would be at OU, but this would be ďour last stop.Ē

That might be the silliest post you've ever made on this board, and I very much hope you never manage to top it.

Iím OK with it as long as heís successful. I donít think he will last more than 4-5 years anyway. Then heíll retire.

If we are lucky enough to make another final four with Lon, he should immediately retire that season.
