However, the commenting has already begun as former player, guard, Jacob Pullen who graduated in 2011 from Kansas State had a lot to say about the hiring of Weber.
“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,” said Pullen on his twitter account. “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.”
