Former LSU QB and NJCAA national champ Lindsey Scott Jr. considering KU football

Three years to play three; he’s a JUCO recruit, but the eligibility is like a high school recruit. Get him in here, and get him in here now. 🙂

Phone call with Syracuse staff helped Washington's Mike Hopkins game plan for Kansas

Defense and our turnovers lost the game last night; throw in being out rebounded by three, and it was all she wrote. We must hang our hat on these principles: handle the ball, D, and rebounding; everything flows from that including offense (stick backs, transition buckets etc.). Until we get full personnel, our half court set offense will continue to struggle; it’s a long season folks, plenty of improvement to be made.

New Orleans WR Devonta Jason drawing interest from another SEC program

He’s still listed as committed; even though he’s had LSU and MSU always as a strong interest. This is why this coach needed to be retained; so he and his staff can have a chance to land this class. It’s unprecedented territory to have s 5* recruit coming to our school; we’re 20 days away.

KU, Villanova announce future hoops series

“Outsmarted” by a matchup zone defense; ‘‘‘tis to laugh. :)

Good to play these home and homes with known quality programs; fun for the fans, excellent for resumé building for the tourney.

Notebook: Zenger endorses Beaty in rebuilding process; Wise and Armstrong will weigh NFL decisions

Frost is doing great at UCF; not near as tough as the Big 12 though, with 60 schollies. We’re not firing this coach; so get over it already. Quit floating names, they’re not going to be the coach here. Everybody can’t see the bigger picture; as an institution Kansas has had tons of football coaches; about every three years, we change coaches. There is no continuity; it’s bad cop then good cop; it’s nonsense really. Do you think that’s not noticed in the intercollegiate football world? And really, Turner Gill a better coach than David Beaty? Please. Because he had 5 wins in 2 years? (MM was 24-13 his last 3 years). He had MM’s recruits, and misused them frequently (Chris Harris, exhibit A). He had one year with four non league games; and won two of them. 56-7 trailing at the half vs OSU; 13 yards per carry given up vs Ga Tech; and on and on. SZ and DB didn’t start the downward spiral; but they deserve a chance to end it; for sure at least slow it down. When Beaty took over, plenty of pundits and scribes talked about a long term project; five or six years. This is year three; that’s half of six. It’s not enough time.

Sheahon Zenger: Beaty will return as coach in 2018

Well, good; it’s official. Beaty is back, and now the naysayers and the callers for his head can now support the program or move on. Let’s secure this recruiting class and get ready for next year. Basically the whole team is back; I can’t believe, they don’t think they have something to prove. Our team should be a highly motivated bunch. Evaluate this season, remember and learn from it, and get ready for next year. Go Jayhawks!

Jayhawks pick up commitment from juco CB on Thanksgiving

Not happening, Beaty is the coach; and will be the coach next year. The recruiting class is good, no need to upset the apple cart now; and this young man continues it. Let’s play hard Saturday, end the year strong, and get ready for the spring. Go Jayhawks!

Beaty apologizes to Oklahoma, KU fans, Big 12 and college football for captains' handshake snub

Our recruiting class is very good, what in the world are you talking about? Our avg. star rating is 3.2 per Rivals; higher than every school in the Big 12, except three. And higher than our three main schools we compete against head to head for a lot of recruits; OSU, ISU and KSU. We have a 5* AND a 4* commit; almost guaranteed to bolt with a new coach. And they’ve been commits a long time. You know they were waiting, getting plenty of people in their ear, telling them “they’re going to fire their coach, they’re going to fire their coach...” and now they know who they’ll be playing for. Yes, the numbers are only 10 (KSU only has 11), but there are plenty of three star guys out there, and overlooked twos (Talib a 2*, Rivera and McClinton were 3* guys). This class will be the best one in quite awhile, and with our KC area recruits, will do wonders for the backyard; which was missed out on big time by Gill and Weis.

Beaty apologizes to Oklahoma, KU fans, Big 12 and college football for captains' handshake snub

Thoughts? Sean Snyder will NEVER be the KU head football coach (and I would not advocate hiring him); I’d rather pursue Brent Venables, as someone with direct KSU ties, but he’s been away from the program for at least 20 years. But I can’t imagine he would take the gig.
You can all relax; Beaty will be the head coach next year; and probably 2019. We will be better next year; and I say that knowing that we weren’t better from 2016 until 2017; but it’s well known the progression doesn’t follow like a step ladder. And HCDB will not resign after the game Saturday; complete fantasy land if you hope for that. Let the man secure the recruiting class; those outstanding kids from La.; and let’s focus in on next year. As I’ve pointed out before, he deserves another year or two; the roster numbers he inherited, were about as bad as it gets.

Notebook: Sims plays through injury vs. Oklahoma; Dineen honors late teammate

Andy, you’re right on. You can’t operate a major college football program short handed; you just can’t. And we’re short handed this year, no doubt. I agree with you, next year is the show progress year, or it’s time for new leadership. The program had no numbers in the spring of 2015, and everyone was talking about five or six years to get it back; it’s now only year three. You can’t have it both ways. Did we all want better football this year? Of course; but as we have all rehashed on here ad nauseam, CW blew out the numbers with all of his transfers and JUCO transfers that never played a down. Everyone had short memories, how bad it was. As far as the non handshake? I wouldn’t have done it, and I don’t condone it. But it at least shows some moxie, some fight. The kids aren’t stupid, they know it’s probsbly going to end up 1-11; and they’re still battling.
