I don't know why we are giving these coaches a raise. Just have them follow all the excellent money making leads that we see in these comments. :)

Booooooongk! You are incorrect, sirs. Thank you for playing, though, please play again soon. The correct reference to, "SHOW ME THE HONEY", is, Jerry Maguire (sic)!

Who says KU Football isn't fun........... :-) :-)

Off topic - I wouldn't mind seeing us settle in on a core home and away uni this year - with an alternate hear or there. Some of the looks last year were terrific (I loved the limestone - my favorite, like the all-red, liked the blue and charcoal, etc.) but I think it might help our brand to settle on a baseline.

Certainly, I understand the whole uniform craze, and I think you have to keep on top of that, but I also think it could be dialed back just a bit.

Puzzled as to why Slater did not receive a raise...? The D line showed reasonable improvement...are they basing these raises on recruiting success? Seems odd that he is at $170 when Riley is at $250 and Riley just moved up now....
