Silvio De Sousa ruled ineligible through 2019-20 season

An OU QB is made a millionaire by MLB, plays football then enters NFL draft. NCAA calls him an amateur. An immigrant basketball player’s guardian takes $2500 without knowledge of the basketball player. The player is suspended for two seasons. NCAA???

Tom Keegan: Why does Carter Stanley keep drawing the short stick?

Unfortunately, the ONLY thing I enjoy about KU football now is Mr. Keegan's columns. His columns are always spot on. Keep up the good work. Someday, this nightmare will end.

Tom Keegan: David Beaty followed wrong recruiting blueprint

Let the record show that despite tremendous criticism, disrespect and ridicule, Mr. Keegan's observations and analysis have been consistently correct regarding Coach Beaty and the Kansas football program. It is unfortunate that Dr. Zenger and Chancellor Gray-Little were not as insightful as Mr. Keegan before rewarding Coach Beaty with an undeserved contract extension. Our football players deserve better.

Mr. Keegan, thanks for speaking truth to power. Keep up the good work.

Tom Keegan: Spring slump grows deeper by day for Kansas Athletics

Does any other Big 12 athletic program get less bang for the buck than KU?

Tom Keegan: Heisman favorite Baker Mayfield's right hand at center of two controversies

Cary, I don't condone any of the OU QB's behavior. However, I am a Jayhawk and my concern is with the sportsmanship displayed by Jayhawks.

Tom Keegan: Heisman favorite Baker Mayfield's right hand at center of two controversies

I didn't think Jayhawk football could sink any lower. Despite incompetent leadership, at least I believed we lost with class. Now it is apparent that we don't even lose with class with our display of poor sportsmanship in front of two young children and a national TV audience.

Impressive football coaches have wanted Kansas job for past three openings

Kevin, you need to read my post again. I strongly believe KU should make a coaching change at the end of this season. My argument is against those people who maintain, KU should NOT make a change because it will cause coaching instability. I do not agree with this defeatist thinking. There are good coaches with a proven track record of pursuing and achieving excellence that KU can hire that will show progress by year three.

Kevin, you are making my point. There will always be coaches that believe in themselves and will take the job. Coaching instability is a bad argument for NOT making a change. KU has done a poor job of hiring quality coaches with a proven record of success. Again, reference Arkansas State University.

Brett McCabe, I agree with you. Coaching instability is not the problem. It is the hiring that is the problem. Arkansas State, my wife's alma mater, has a history of replacing their head football coach frequently after one season. They are replaced not because they are bad but because ASU hires well and their coaches are lured to bigger programs.

As far as no quality coach wanting the job, I believe that is defeatist thinking. A good coach believes in himself and knows he can show progress by year three. They would see KU as an opportunity in which any progress would be well received by the fan base-high upside, low downside. No good coach would believe, "I can't take that job because I will be fired after year three." Good coaches know they will show progress in year three. Ask Coach Bill Snyder. Similar thinking would have had Bill Self turning down the KU basketball job because there was no way he could match Roy Williams' success. Coach Self believed in himself, took the job, he is a great coach and he probably never doubted it.

I am not a historian, but I believe President Lincoln fired numerous successive Generals for incompetence. Thankfully, he kept it up until he found a fighter and military genius named General Grant. I doubt that General Grant thought, "Gee, I can't take that job because President Lincoln will fire me after one year." Grant was a fighter and he knew how to win. Oh, and he did exactly that.

I am sure there is a coach out there that has a proven track record of pursuing and attaining excellence and would not hesitate to take the job. Oh, and they would show progress after year three.
