KU football veterans encouraged by addition of OL Alex Fontana

I would question whether it was his lack of reps as a HC that was unable to attract top flight assistants or the fact that he was being paid less as a HC than many assistants, much less top flight assistants. We weren't just in a recruiting hole. We were in a huge budget hole. It is easy to speculate on who we should have, or who expressed interest prior to hearing the salary. We are finally starting to turn around all of those factors. The last 3 years are really irrelevant. This year is the one that counts.

Kansas WR Steven Sims Jr. dashing into forefront as senior

Who's going to be the WR to be a threat to opposing Ds and take some help D pressure off of Sims. Really the last significant WRs were Briscoe and Meiers (SP?). It is tough to have 1 without the other.

David Beaty: KU football was down to 39 scholarship players when he took over

“Through the help of a lot of great minds here, we did. We created a few different tools to use what, quite honestly, I don’t think anybody’s ever had to think of.”

The results on the field have been lacking, but the staff has done a great job of rebuilding the size and quality of the roster.

Notice the qualifier on the statement. The numbers in this article do not include walk-ons that were given scholies. It makes a lot of sense if we care to think about it without a lynch mob mentality. Why would he encourage the other team and talk down his team by saying they had fewer players, or call players he counting on to contribute non(scholarship)players.

There are a lot of ways to report statistics.

In your opinion? Like it's an opinion and you have some inside knowledge.

It's not even 50 in the next 2 years. We have less than 30 in the Sr class (I think it is down to 25 with the players leaving recently.), and less than 20 in the Jr class (18?).

KU's QB competition 'elevated' with 3 candidates in mix to start

When all the options are equally underwhelming, how do you decide who to give the extra reps to?

RB Taylor Martin 1 of 4 players to leave KU football

My guess is Taylor saw the underclassmen getting his carries. The talent level has increased with each recruiting class.

The biggest downside is with the depth, especially when there are injuries during the season.

The posted roster only has 100 players listed, including Taylor and Kenyon.

OL Alex Fontana joins KU football as grad transfer

What?

Telepathy?

Oh, out of that entire post you pick out the question to Bryson, which bothers you because you disagree with him in general.

Do you have a rundown on who will be on the OL? Thoughts on a 2 deep?

To Bryson's credit, he has had good information about the team apparently because he knows some of the players on the team. What is your source of info on the team? What good knowledge do you have to offer? Any?

Thanks for the 2 years to play knowledge.

It also could be a huge blessing in disguise that Tovi was basically forced to play OC this Spring. Even if he doesn't get to start, we undoubtedly will need a back-up that knows what they're doing at some point during the season.
