Well, I couldn't come up with a better title than that, especially after seeing all the puns on Bill Self's name lately. Goodbye, Coach Self. You did some great thngs here, we will certainly miss you. You are one of the nicest people I have ever met, and I thought you were a great coach. But you are screwing us now.

Hopefully our prize recruit Villanueva will still come to Illinois, even though he has not signed yet. I heard he might go to Kansas now, which would piss me off even more.

The question for Illinois is, who's next? Here's one vote for Marquette's Tom Crean.

One more thing that pisses me off is an article Andy Katz just wrote on espn.com, where he said Self should go because Kansas is a national job, while Illinois is a regional job (something like that). I think that is total BS. Illinois is year in, year out one of the best in the country, just like Kansas. I hope we play them next year and kick the crap out of Self and boys.

It's this sort of thing which is why I just cannot get into the college game beyond a passing hope for my alma mater (GO DPU!) and enjoying the NCAA tournament. The NBA makes no bones about the mercenary nature of its teams, and the fans accept that. But NCAA does this ugly charade of really caring about the kids and the fans and "let's all be a big happy family" and in the end every head coach is looking for a way to get out of dodge as soon as possible. Which is fine, good for Bill Self for getting more cash and his "dream job". But don't spread the bullshit that you give a damn about the place you're at for anything more than the paycheck, and its ability to perhaps springboard you to an even better job in a couple of years.
