Fair enough. The program must earn some credibility before it can expect people shell out the $$, the time and the emotion. The excuses must end.

Look over the past few years in KU Athletics: Women's Bball - 2 trips to the Sweet 16, Women's Softaball - NCAA tourney, Women's Golf - NCAA tourney, Men's Baseball - NCAA tourney, Women's Track - National Championship. Football needs to step it up.

Football is much more expensive to support than the other non-revenue sports are. To put it very bluntly, KU football will be a consistent bottom feeder program with a year of success here and there until one of the high dollar alums decides to invest in KU football the way Pickens did at OSU and Drayton McLane has at Baylor. As long as KU keeps waiting for consistent on field success to fundraise, it's never going to happen because it takes a major financial commitment to build the foundation for long term success regardless of the current state of the football program.

Aaron, this is interesting. The Anderson Sports complex is considered to be one of the best in the country. New practice fields have been installed and we have a new, expensive staff. Didn't Baylor's resurgence take place before the stadium was built?

I'm not arguing, I'm just trying to find out what else needs to be done.

Cool, another game that WON'T be available on DirecTV or Dish. Great job KU Athletics for still not getting anything done with Satellite providers, therefore leaving most rural Kansas residents left out. This is like Longhorn Network version 2.0
