Frank Mason competes in charity softball game with former Jayhawks

Such a neat way to give back to the surrounding Jayhawk Community and to raise money for a cause.

Chancellor Girod fires KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger, citing lack of progress and necessary change in leadership

I know they're both RB Coaches. But, retain Hull as he currently is employed. And, hire Mitchell in a different Offensive coaching capacity. He's been more than just a RB coach (in his coaching tenures).

Let's do our best to keep Coach Tony Hull. And, bring back Coach Reggie Mitchell (as well from UTEP). Both are PROVEN Recruiters.

I know that this guy just took the AD job at SIU-Carbondale. But, how about Jerry Kill? I'm sure that Kansas could offer him a lot more than SIU-C can. And, Kill is a Kansan and definitely a Football Guy.

Notebook: KU football's leaders aim to change program's culture

I find the following quoted portion of the article very interesting. It appears that the players had insight of what was coming down the pipes (as this story was being written). And, Steven Sims was the player who was going to let it be known "We're ready for change".

"So how do the Jayhawks go about getting back to the point where they’re playing in and winning big games?

“We’ve gotta first change the culture,” senior receiver Steven Sims Jr. said, “which we’re already in the progress of doing.”

“It has to be a player-led locker room. The team has to bring energy," Sims said. "No matter what Coach (David) Beaty says, we have to go out and do it. We have to go out on the field and make plays, we have to go out and make tackles, things like that.”

It will take something remarkable for KU football to escape its current rut — nine consecutive losing seasons, with three or fewer victories in each of the previous eight.

“So I feel like it’s all on the shoulders of the players and the leaders of this team,” Sims said."

Chancellor Girod fires KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger, citing lack of progress and necessary change in leadership

"Zenger's termination comes as Kansas Athletics is working to raise money for $350 million in athletic facility improvements, with more than $300 million slated for the football program. Work already is underway for a $26 million indoor practice facility for the football team. However, it is unclear how the change in leadership may affect other planned improvements that have not yet been started."

When big time Donor's are being asked for contributions to such structural endeavors, there's always going to be some "I'll donate, but I want X, Y & Z completed, before I donate."

Case in point, when Saint Louis University was looking for just a little more $$$$$$$$ for their new Basketball Arena, they went back to Dr. David B. Chaiffetz for just a little bit more money. And, Dr. Chaiffetz demanded that Head Coach be relieved from his duties (Brad Soderberg), and replaced with Rick Majerus. So, the Dr. got his wish and even his name on the Arena. So, it will be interesting to see who the Power Player was (once all of the dust settles).

KU great Nick Collison calls it a career after 15 years in the NBA

By no means, an NBA Hall of Famer. But, he's made some dang good salary during his NBA career. Congratulations Nick. Now that you're retired, I hope to see you hanging around Lawrence, Kansas in the future seasons. Plus, there's always the ability to coach (as well).

Tom Keegan: Competitive football teams, not shiny stadiums, draw crowds

Dave Doeren (NC State HC) – Doeren just got a new extension. I doubt he's leaving Raleigh, North Carolina anytime soon. I'm sure that his family enjoys the winters in Raleigh way more than what the winters in Kansas are typically like.

Chad Morris (was SMU HC now Arkansas HC) – I'm sure that Arkansas can match any dollar thrown at Morris. And, why would Morris abandon ship this early. Kansas would have a better chance of hiring the former Arkansas Head Coach now (than Chad Morris). Also, see my comments above comments about winters in Lawrence, Kansas (as well).

Craig Bohl (Wyoming HC) – Brett McCabe has covered Craig Bohl extensively over these past months. Coach Bohl knows how to build a program. However, Josh Allen falling into Coach Bohl's laps are just one of those things that happens periodically in NCAA. And, we will see how well Josh Allen does in the NFL. I'm not wishing him any bad luck. But, the NFL is a hell of a lot different than playing at Wyoming and against the league competition that Wyoming plays against.
