Border Winner: Azubuike sparks Jayhawks in exhibition win over Mizzou

Says a lot about Coach Self. Idiot radio commentators can't get off the "why won't they play" theme, while Self recognizes bigger things are important in this world. Proud to be a Jayhawk today. Happy because we won, but proud because this was a great, great idea, by a great, great KU coach.

Rivalry renewed: Jayhawks prevail vs. Mizzou in charity exhibition

Needed this game to take my mind off the debacle thrust upon on us by Zenger's football hires. Here's hoping for a press conference tomorrow morning

We need it when Bill says we need it. End of story.

Tom Keegan: Kansas football continues to take steps backward

I also would not survive very long naked on the top of Mount Everest. What that has to do with Zenger, Weis and Beaty? I have no idea.

Texas prep QB Tune backs out of verbal commitment to Kansas

On back-to-back occasions, Zenger fell for the hype. With Weis, it was I'll bring in 5-star transfers, a superior coaching mind and we'll get this thing fixed. With Beaty it was, I'll reel in Texas players and install an offense they already run at their high schools.

As I posted previously. If you are building your dream house, you don't hire an architect that just got fired by a big name firm and you don't hire an apprentice who has never built a house before. You hire a guy who knows how to successfully design and build from the ground up. And it doesn't have to take five years to build a house.

We need a proven guy. It almost makes me cry to know that we were down to Calhoun and Beaty and Zenger ignored the proven pro, and bought into the salesman. Think where we would be right now had Zenger chosen right with either hire: thinking about a win vs KSU this weekend.

The drip will continue. I can't see a single recruit staying with us, which is why the argument often used on this site "you have to start over with a new staff" is completely a moot point. The kids don't believe in what they are seeing, they are embarrassed to say they are committed to KU and they will mostly disappear by the end of the year. A new staff is going to be the same place this staff is - trying to build a class from scratch beginning in December.

Girod is a Navy guy, so he could easily go after the Air Force A.D., who is a West Point grad. The Tulane A.D. and coach would also be doable. Fritz grew up in Overland Park and played at Pitt State.

The Wyoming AD is a lifetime Cowboy and Jim Leavitt or Pellini will come unattached. Perhaps there is an Associate AD at Oregon who would be a candidate?

The perfect world? A high energy person who can keep the stadium moving forward and bring in one of these coaches. Any of these coaches (Bohl, Fritz, Calhoun, Leavitt, Pellini) would make us competitive. Once we get to that level, we can see what we need to do from there.

Bad news - good news. Bad news that we lost another recruit. Good news in that this makes it easier for Girod to point to some things when he makes his announcement.

Provide any evidence that Beaty is the guy to get the job done and your post will be more credible. In year three, no matter what, you should be better than in year one. Yes, we have a win against an FCS opponent, but I don't think that this team could beat Beaty's first one.

Also, keep an eye on results in Columbia and Fayetteville. We really need both of those coaches to be retained, though I can't see how Bielema makes it, especially if he loses the finale vs. misery.

The fewer good jobs out there in 5 weeks, the better for us. Though Girod needs to get busy right now getting the wheels in motion.

Pellini (just added to the list)
Fritz
Leavitt
Calhoun
Bohl

Pick one and let's get going!
