Bill Self, you just coached Kansas to a college basketball championship

Where are you going now?

Oklahoma State University.

The blogs are on fire with the news that Self, an OSU alum, is heading home one state south to take a generous offer supported by another home-town boy, T. Boone Pickens. Pickens recently gifted the university athletic program with more than $100 million to renovate facilities.

Self graduated in 1985. That means that yes, I watched him play.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed until this thing happens.
