KU football will have open practice instead of traditional spring game

1-26 doesn't earn anything for anybody anywhere except under "save my job Zenger".

Beaty screwed up the roster-build, chased off quality players, turnstiled his coaching staff (yeah, I know it's not a word), promised a bowl game and then gutted the program on his way out the door with a JUCO recruiting class that the next guy will have to clean-up after.

Tailgate that.

1-26. And you need another year to question Beaty?

Anyone who thinks transitioning this from a spring game to a practice is due to injuries, probably also believes that McGwire and Bonds were PED-free. This isn't about injuries, it's about not having a fan count in the stadium for a spring game. It's about lowering expectations and avoiding embarrassment. The embarrassment of a 1-26 record.

If I were David Booth, I'd have them wait a few years before officially changing the stadium name.

Ryan Willis, Jace Sternberger star in spring games

The treatment and mishandling of Willis by Beaty is the clearest symbol out there of the enormity of the ineptitude of the current KU coach, and the AD who hired him.

After Willis committed to KU and Charlie, Beaty tried to recruit past him in the same class. Willis not only kept his commitment, he welcomed the competition, won the job, an sent his competitor to the redshirt closet.

After taking an absolute beating for a year, playing tough, never complaining and actually visibly displaying the type of mettle we needed in the program, Beaty began his bi-polar routine at QB because Willis wouldn't hold hands and sing love songs with his teammates.

Willis' ability was so clearly superior to any other QB on the roster, that only a numbskull like Beaty could insist on running an offense counter to his best quarterbacks' abilities. In addition to Beaty's enthusiasm and stupidity, the most remarkable personality trait of the current coach has been his arrogance. I guess this was based on the fact that once was in the same room with a Heisman trophy winner.

While it's no surprise the Cozart and Willis have made upturns by going to programs with better coaching, a better evaluation of the current staff's coaching ability is to look at the number of starters, JUCO recruits, flip-flops and abandonments the current staff has inflicted on the program in 3 years. Beaty literally has no idea how to identify QB talent, to recruit QB talent (his best QB was recruited by Weis), to coach QB talent or to develop QB talent. But one thing we all know for sure is this: he won't give Nicholls an advantage by announcing his QB until they send in the first play.

Kansas football crowds smallest in power five

If we hadn't had a home game vs. KSU, the overall numbers would have worked even worse.

The good news? The idiotic new indoor practice facility, furnished a handful of high school bleachers, might be able to serve as our new stadium as long as the Girod/Zenger/Beaty three-headed monster continues to live.

Tom Keegan: Is Adidas money worth the embarrassment for Kansas Athletics?

Put a rider in the contract: any illegal activities by anyone affiliated with Adidas/UA/Nike/Puma - the payout doubles.

Employee of apparel company illegally paid 2 KU basketball players' guardians, federal indictment alleges

R humor. Just like Dennis Miller and Tim "drug dealer" Allen. No self-discipline. Fat, lazy, sloppy, intellectually challenged. Not funny. Just sad.

Lew? You don't remember the crowing from SZ about how much we were getting when "he" re-signed with Adidas? At least get your facts straight. There are a hundred reason Zenge should be fired, this one tops the list.

Josh Jackson charging up rookie class

No surprise to me about Josh. We all witnessed first hand his competitiveness which generally leads to improvement. I think Josh is going to be a star in the NBA for quite a long time. In fact, I think he'll be an All-Star by year four, when he'll still be in his early 20's.

Josh's biggest weakness was his shooting, and that is the number one skill that seems to improve for a lot of players in the NBA. Easily my favorite O.A.D. Jayhawk. Loved the attitude, the hustle, the competitiveness, the energy.....He's on his way.
