Self, some other Kansas coaches returning to offices in limited capacity and with precautions

I think that is why some of them are only in the office for less than 1 hour.

KU administrators, Self, Miles and Long to take 6-month pay cut amid COVID-19 pandemic

The athletic department could save even more money by just ending this ugly lawsuit with the ex-football coach. I can't even say his name he was that bad, but what they are trying to do now is ugly for the university and will ultimately end up costing them more than just paying him off.

500k athletic department savings on a 100m budget is a drop in the bucket and another PR move by AD Long. I'm really beginning to wonder if he is the right man for the job.

Jayhawks add CBs Dotson and Bryant, DE Anokwuru to 2020 class on National Signing Day

One of the things I like is the raw size of the OL/DL recruits. Give them 3 years in a real weight and nutrition program and by the time they are JR's, they could finally be what we need in the trenches.

Les Miles says recruiting a QB a priority for KU

If we go with a 5th year senior next year *Thomas MacVittie and Miles Kendrick*, then it will be another wasted year in the program and I think the Coaching staff understands this. I'm not saying that either of these young men can't play, but for the future of the program, we need to start either a 1st or 2nd year player and allow them two or three years to truly develop into the system. This will also allow the coaching staff to recruit over him in the future.

There's a $1.5M difference between average head coaching salaries for men's, women's teams at KU, report shows

Here is what I took out of the article -

Why is Women's Basketball claiming 13 scholarships?

Title IX want's equal opportunity, so therefore there should be between 11 and 24 additional scholorships available for men's programs.

Bring back Men's Wrestling, Men's Tennis, Men's Soccer or better yet - offer full scholarships for Men's Baseball.

Kennedy Farris to join Kansas volleyball

Doesn't matter the sport, just love seeing local student-athletes joining the Hawks!!!

They almost always end up being the glue and the backbone of championship teams.

Potential OC candidate for KU football reportedly withdraws from consideration

100% agree - I'm a true believer that a strong run game not only shortens the game, but it keeps the defensive unit fresh.

KU football redshirted 27 players in 2018

HCDB once said he wasn't going to red-shirt anyone. Now, we see he had 27 players red-shirt. Amazing.

Hopefully HCLM will be able to use a handful of them and take advantage of the extra year.

11 possible candidates to become KU football's next head coach

I really wish someone would look at this under the radar head coach. This guys can get it done.

Brian Bohannon from Kennesaw State. Maybe the Big South isn't the most impressive conference, but look at this background, where he is from, and what he has accomplished.

Just so you know - I have no relationship with this coach or program. I did a deep dive into up and coming coaches on my own who have the same ideals I believe that it takes to make a difference. I was looking for someone who doesn't coach the same ways as everyone else. Who believes in his own philosophy and is willing to march to his own beliefs.
