Inside The Deep State Plot To Stop The Kansas Jayhawks From Winning Their 14th Straight Big 12 Championship

We’ve been caught. It’s time to come clean.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports


The jig is up. It’s time to come clean.

Oliver Luck and Bob Huggins’ secret plot to make sure the Kansas Jayhawks don’t come close to winning their 14th straight Big 12 regular season championship has been exposed in a groundbreaking tweet from a Jayhawk fan who calls themselves “RockChalkPhog25.” RCP25 - as I will refer to them for the remainder of this article - alleges that Oliver Luck, the former WVU and current NCAA Regulatory Executive Vice President, has delayed clearing Silvio DeSousa and Billy Preston until after West Virginia plays Kansas at home on Monday.

For those who are unaware, the NCAA is looking into the financial details surrounding a vehicle that 6’10” freshman Billy Preston has been driving around Lawrence. DeSousa is waiting for the NCAA to certify his amateur status, after the Angola native graduated from IMG Academy.

(The tweet has also been screencapped, in the event that Luck and the Deep State NCAA attempt to scrub all mentions of collusion from the Internet.)

The allegation points to a stipulation that Luck built into Bob Huggins’ contract, granting Huggins a $25,000 bonus every time he defeated Bill Self and his Kansas Jayhawks, as proof of Luck and Huggins’ collusion. In West Virginia’s first five seasons in the Big 12 Conference, Huggins netted $100,000 from that provision with four straight wins over the Jayhawks in Morgantown. As a reminder, two of the aforementioned wins came when Kansas was ranked No. 2 or better, and by a margin of at least 10 points.

So now it’s finally time to come clean.

Yes, it’s true.

Bob Huggins does indeed have a clause in his contract that awards him $25,000 for beating the (former) rulers of the Big 12 basketball world. Current West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons, in an attempt to better cover up loose ends, rewrote the clause in Huggins’ latest contract extension, and it now specifies that the bonus will be donated directly to the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment. Huggins’ previous bonuses - all $100,000 - have also been directed to the fund set up for in his mother’s name.

To go a step further into this coverup, the NCAA - under Luck’s direction - suspended Esa Ahmad for the first half of West Virginia’s regular season to throw the Jayhawks and the rest of the world off the scent. It’s no small coincidence that Ahmad is set to return to action this Saturday against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, just one game before the Mountaineers take on Kansas in Morgantown.

And here we are. West Virginia is sitting at 15-1 on the season, and is hot off a big win over the Oklahoma Sooners - which was surrounded by controversy of its own.

Kansas is currently tied for second in the Big 12 standings, alongside the Sooners and the Red Raiders, and a loss in Morgantown will most assuredly seal the Jayhawks fate as Big 12 Conference runners up.

This has all been the perfect setup, and the West Virginia Mountaineers would have got away with it if it weren’t for an amazing investigative performance from noted Kansas Twitterer RCP25. Bob Huggins will now have to beat the Jayhawks without help from NCAA Dark Lord Oliver Luck. Fortunately for us, we have a history of pulling it off.
