Notebook: David Beaty's 'reality' includes 'urgency' to produce KU football wins

Bowen prepares on defense...made me chuckle.

Let's see. Aug1 move in. Aug 2 meet Bill self and get the behind the scenes tour of AFH. Aug 3 name an interim coach, saving the university in buyout money.

Tom Keegan: David Beaty could leave scholarship situation roughly same as one he inherited

I like the research...an additional reason for an interim to be named. The shifts will be k own and less turnover. Plus the coaching search can begin.

David Beaty not interested in putting win-total number on this season's expectations

3 years of incentive based contracts, and not one incentive paid...that is all that needs to be documented about Beaty's coaching at KU.

Tom Keegan: Can Jayhawks turn saving coach's job into motivational fuel?

Last year, Beaty said 6 wins, don't lower expectations because he keeps losing.

Without 6 wins, he should be fired, but put me on record as one that thinks he shouldn't coach another game at KU.

As a note, a loss in any of the first three games, should send him packing if he is chosen to keep his job at the start of the year.

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

Please provide support for the rebuilding of the roster in size and quality. I'm not sure I've seen any numbers supporting an upgrade in overall talent from the Gill, Weis, or Beaty years.

David Beaty and Jayhawks maintain presence of new AD not accompanied by additional pressure

If Coach Beaty coaches Game 1, doesn't it cost KU $1.6MM?

Basically, his annual contract becomes guaranteed and he is paid an additional year.

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

And after four years of recruiting; how many players with scholarships will he giving to the next coach? Basically, in four years he has not improved the situation and has the worst coaching record in the history of KU football. If he goes 6-6 he still owns that mark. Remember it was Coach Beaty that set the standard for 6 wins last year and he didn't even come close. I'm leaning more to naming an interim before the season starts.

OL Alex Fontana joins KU football as grad transfer

Um.. are you all saying Tom got zenger fired? Zenger got himself fired. Look at his football record.

OL Alex Fontana joins KU football as grad transfer

So 4 years into recruiting we are pulling 10% of our recruits as grad transfers, 50% are Jucos, and the remaining are high school recruits. I'm all for a strategic approach, but this isn't a plan.

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

Three QBs every year splitting repetitions under Beaty. I wonder how many other positions lack the repetitions at their respective positions.

I get competition, but reps make you better, slows the game down, and increases confidence.
