David Beaty hires former Missouri Tiger A.J. Ricker as new KU O-line coach

If Beaty was ever coaching for his job, it was when he went 1-11 this year, and he kept it. I don't think anyone expects a win next year, and Beaty will continue being a rah rah leader on the sideline.

There has not been any measureable expectation for Beaty, nor after this year should we expect him to be coaching for his job. Last year he had an incentive laden contract and he received not one incentive.

Backup QB Tyriek Starks leaves KU football

If I understand correctly, Tony has been able to recruit the high school that he was a coach at, and was able to get some of those guys committed (including Starks) and a couple of them were rated 4 and 5 stars. I think he has been instrumental in getting us into the door of some Louisiana players, but he has been given a lot of credit. I don't think this affects his standing at Louisiana at all.

Personally, I don't think KU's success is hinged on how we do in Louisiana. I believe it hinges on success in Kansas, followed by Texas, and then Oklahoma. Anything else is gravy.

Congratulations Starks...Look forward to you succeeding at your next opportunity.

We would have loved for you to show your skills here, but understand your choice.

Juco QB to enroll at Kansas this semester

I always find it interesting that we attract Dual Threat QBs; however, Beaty runs the Air Raid.

Silvio De Sousa cleared by NCAA; will play today vs. K-State

I assume Dr Zenger is still in the NCAA office 24/7 until Preston has resolution.

The latest on Silvio De Sousa, Billy Preston, both of whom are still waiting for their turn to play

I don't understand why Dr Zenger is not sitting in the NCAA office, 24 hours a day until this is resolved.

Please don't tell me he is too busy evaluating the football coach and staff.

Beaty not retaining O-line coach or special teams coordinator for 2018 season

Believe me, I don't think any part of the team was successful. I'm just curious how we compared. I do think FG kicking did improve, but that is a small portion of ST.

KU coach Bill Self still deciding whether to start Malik Newman or Marcus Garrett vs. K-State

I always thought that Malik Newman was a PG and Graham was a two guard. It seemed that Graham absolutely flourished under Mason as the 1 and Graham at the 2. I had assumed that Newman was going to jump into the 1 and Graham was just going to improve at the two.

Can I get a perspective on why Graham shifted out of his 2 and likewise why Malik moved away from his 1? I really am curious.

Beaty not retaining O-line coach or special teams coordinator for 2018 season

Benton Smith, excellent article. I am curious though. It does seem like our FG kicking actually was on par this year and punting and kick-offs were reasonable. Now maybe they were very bad in previous years and it just seems slightly better.

Anyways, would it be possible to give someone on the LJW team an opportunity to outline how the Special Teams did over the past few years compared to the Big XII/Nation?

I guess I knew the defense was bottom 125ish every year, and the offense was just about the same...but I never heard whether our ST were that bad or not, a perspective on that would be very much welcomed?

Thanks and keep the stories coming!
