    No, get a grip man. ORU has the best baseball program in the Summit and a solid basketball program including an elite 8 appearance. They are a dumpster fire right but UMKC is pretty much a bottom 10 all time program.

    Only thing good about UMKC is that they are in Kansas City but no one cares about UMKC not even UMKC's mom cares about UMKC.

    Most people in KC are either Kansas, Kansas State, or Missouri fans. UMKC is usually an after thought.

    Not sure if my brother in law (ORU grad) got this straight but he heard Scott was told to fire his brother (an assistant coach?) and he refused and then he got fired.

    That seems to be the story out of Tulsa. It went something like this:

    Sutton had two years left on his current contract. Much like the situation with our VB coach, he was basically told his contract was not going to be renewed. He was give two choices: 1. Leave now; 2. Stay for one more year. Option #2 came with a stipulation. Sutton was told he had to fire his brother and hire his own replacement as an assistant. Over the course of the season, the new assistant coach would take over all the duties of the head coach and Sutton would become a figurehead. The ORU president thought Sutton would actually like this choice since it would give him a farewell lap around the Summit. Surprisingly enough, Sutton didn't think much of this plan. He told his lawyer to reject the option, but thought that the rejection would lead to more negotiation. That's why he was a little surprised when he heard that he had been fired(after his wife and/or daughter learned about the firing through twitter).

    All this comes from the ORU messageboard.
