Jacob Pullen isn't happy about Kansas State hiring Bruce Weber
The hiring was a surprise, considering that no one knew who Kansas State had on their radar and how quiet their search was after Frank Martin bolted for South Carolina.
Pullen. who is the school's all time scoring leader took to Twitter to rip Weber's hiring and his recruiting. Remember that Pullen is a Chicago guy and Weber didn't take full advantage of the fertile recruiting area.
"I support kstate for life no matter what but I'm not a Bruce Webber fan and I think Kstate can do a lot better," Pullen tweeted early Saturday. "Bruce Webber didn't think I was good enough to play at Illinois and I don't think he is good enough to coach at Kansas State."
Pullen may come off as bitter but there could be some truth to what he said. He's also saying what many Kansas State fans are thinking right now.
