The Andre Slater tweets were odd and seemed to take a shot at Anderson, while inferring Hsu has some kind of leverage. It is very strange and in fairness to Hsu, maybe we should not conclude anything yet. Strange though.

Good advice. Let's wait and see; hopefully no fire with this smoke.

I don't know much about Slater, is Hsu his friend or something, seems to be taking shots at CMA, he was also the first to report on LJ's visit. Very unprofessional to refer to CMA and TJ as the "ex-Arkansas coach and his nephew"

He is not on 247sports's 2019 transfer portal list, but i noticed him on verbal commits list earlier and shortly after that the news broke.
Dunno...


He is on the ESPN list.

I think he's our best player by far and he has a tremendous opportunity to show himself as a main option this year. If the previous staff was here, transferring and waiting a year might have been the best option, but with the current staff I think it would be a bad move for him to sit out a year.

Hsu has also proven himself to be a good recruiter. I don't see any reason why not bring him in with the type of players he's bringing in WKU. I don't mind if we hire other guys though.

No matter what happens with Hsu, I hope LJ decides to stay here, and we can build a strong team around him and Heron for this upcoming year. I trust what this staff can do with good players.

Agree. In addition, we have plenty of room for Hsu, and TJ Cleveland is a veteran assistant himself who is a very good recruiter and veteran in his own right. He’s familiar with the style and is plenty worthy of the AHC spot. Hsu shouldn’t be insulted at all with the next assistant spot should that be the one offered. I think Slater was just saying basically “what are you waiting for To hire Hsu”? It’s in Anderson’s court.

LJ is 21 years old, can't imagine sitting out a year is beneficial to him on any level. Could possibly be 1st team BE this year if he stays.

I thought all the drama would be over with hiring of a straight up professional like Mike Anderson. Guess not.

The guy has to bring in his own coaches and players. Can’t always make everybody happy. We still need plenty of staff members as we only have a HC and Cleveland so I’d guess things are far from settled.

Another media member with an ego. Is there anyone legit who actually covers this program?
