Turner Gill left recruiting abyss

The inevitable roster upheaval that occurs when coaching changes take place in college football makes it particularly difficult to try to forecast starters, just shy of four months from the season-opener.

KU's next move must be bold one

Two years ago, after Mark Mangino had just coached his final game for Kansas University with a loss to Missouri and a seven-game losing streak, he spoke into a microphone on the table in front of him. His last words after eight years on the job: “I will tell you that I may be one of the more pleasant people to deal with in college football. Trust me.”

Did anybody besides me think that Perkins decided to fire Mangino because he had made up his mind he wanted Gill? I felt like the accusations against Mangino could have been made against 85% of the D-1 coaches in America. I always thought there was some kind of fix in.
