If a KU football coaches wins 9 in consecutive seasons, he'll get a contract extension and a statue.

Kansas football coach Lance Leipold reiterates he's 'extremely happy' at KU

Concur on all your points. Most head coaches at this level are making millions -- including Leipold.

It's their staff they want to make sure are getting compensated enough to stay.

I agree with the sentiment that those numbers probably have to double -- even moreso than his actual number -- take make it worth it.

This happens everywhere though. And unfortunately this is a place a Big 10 school will likely have that over us. At least $$$ wise.

My guess is KU will make this work. Im comfortable he actually wants to stay. He's a builder. But Wisconsin will certainly be calling.

ESPN's College Gameday coming to Kansas for Week 6 showdown between KU and TCU

I've said all along I'm not going to lose my BLEEP until we become bowl eligible.

Im hoping that happens this weekend!

It's a fun team to watch!

When was the last time we said that?

Kansas ranked again in both major college football polls

Look folks... if end up in Bowl -- and I believe we will -- odds are great KU will throw as much $$$ at Coach Leipold as it realistically can (and maybe more) and he'll likely end up staying here.

Now, could Nebraska or Wisconsin probably throw double that amount at him? Probably. I just don't think he's in this for the short term. Im confident he didn't view this job as merely a springboard to a larger gig.

It'd be naive to think there won't be pull to coach Wisconsin though. Likely well more than Nebraska.

All this is fun and exciting. But until we're bowl eligible, Im not going to lose my bleep.

If I recall at the end of Mangino's tenure we started 5-0 and then lost 7 straight.

I have full faith that's not going to happen with this team.

But until we win 6 or 7, Im holding off on pouring my self a glass.

5 and Oh My: Kansas survives late scare, hangs on to beat Iowa State 14-11

Considering how we rarely win, much less win ugly, I'll take it.

Matt Tait: It's time for Kansas football to lock up Lance Leipold

I'd point as well that he's 58. He's not 28, or even in his early to mid 30s.

Im sure the Huskers could throw twice the salary at him. I don't think he's as high up that list as folks would think though. But who knows.

My personal feeling is if we increase his salary so he's not last in the Big 12, he'd end up staying.

Matt Tait: It's time for Kansas football to lock up Lance Leipold

I'd like to wait until we're bowl eligible to start the whole "lock him up now" conversation.

Kansas officials announce a sellout for Saturday's KU football game vs. Duke

Gameday should have come to Lawrence. But if we keep winning, maybe that happens.
