LSU / Bobby Knight Fallout

A lotta buzz flyin around the interwebs right now involving LSU, Bobby Knight, and uber recruit J'Mison Morgan.

Let's go through this one step at a time.

First, if you haven't heard, LSU fired head coach John Brady just 2 years removed from a trip to the Final Four.

Why should this interest Kansas fans? Mr. Morgan, a five star center, signed with Brady at LSU after heavy recruitment by Coach Self. With the coach gone, it is quite possible that Morgan will be re-opening his recruitment (unless they pull a KState and let him pick the coach, of course).

More on J'Mison Morgan can be found here (check out the highlight video):

The first thing you'll notice is his massive size, but surprisingly nimble feet.

OK, so where does Bobby Knight fit into all of this? Apparently, Dickie V was speculating during the Dook-Roy's Boys game that Knight isn't done, but instead wants to head somewhere where recruiting won't be so much of a challenge. Why anyone would want to play for that insecure bully is beyond me, but I digress.  LSU is likely looking to make a big name hire to compete in the SEC, and he's the biggest name out there right now.

Given Knight's histrionics, I have to think this would push Morgan out the door. No elite level talent has wanted to play for that guy since Isiah Thomas.

Keep an eye on how the dominoes here may fall in this scenario. If Bobby K does make this move, it'll be interesting to see how his steadfast supporters will spin this into anything but a sheisty ass move.
