Monday Rewind — Texas A&M: Was this the worst loss in the Turner Gill era?

So where does KU go from here? Next week a lot of coaches will be fired - KU will have a lot of competition, might as well start early. I know there are a lot of people who don't like Mike Leach but in KU's situation he might be the best hire, an established, successful, coach who probably wants back in the Big 12, but whose baggage might keep him away from other schools.

And speaking of the baggage, a guy who wrote a book on Leach's firing was quoted as saying that ..."after looking at the facts, Lanning said, he decided that Leach’s firing was not about wrongful actions, but about certain Tech officials having personal problems with the coach and his recent contract negotiations."

KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger on football program: 'We will get this thing fixed'

Gill's teams had a stretch of losing 7 of 9 at Buffalo in 2009, 7 of 8 at KU in 2010 and 5 in a row in 2011... Two plays go differently (CU & MU) and KU finishes 7-5 in 2009 and Gill is failing somewhere else. June Jones anyone?

Mangino speaks out on returning to coaching


I don't know if you can, or want to, get into this, but as a fan reading the comments I wondered what really happened with Mangino. How accurate is what jayhawkerjoel (and others) said? Was Mangino really a bully? How did others in the athletic department view him? How did most players view him?

Realignment Today: 3:43 p.m. - Neinas conference call set for 5 p.m.; may help uncover Mizzou's motives

If MU is doing this for leverage vs Texas I don't blame them. OU has none now that the Pac12 said "no thanks." Since then Texas has gone back to basically saying third tier rights for the Longhorn network are not going to be split. The rest of the schools need whatever leverage there is to drag Texas into negotiations. If not we might as well name DeLoss Dodd as Big 12 Commissioner...

Matt Tait's KU football notebook

What's going on with ticket sales for this season? Seems kinda quiet on this front but am getting a lot of emails from KU to buy tickets and also seeing a lot of ads.

Texas lawmakers criticize raise given to Longhorns basketball coach Rick Barnes

Salaries for Texas legislators were last raised in 1975 to $600 a month and a lot of people believe the problem with the Texas legislature is that the pay is so low that members are beholden to business, not the public. In “The Wrecking Crew” Thomas Frank (who attended KU) noted that bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad and Texas lives up to that.

What the Haith?

KU played 9 non-conference games at Allen this season, two road campus games, three neutral site games, and one at Sprint Center, so the breakdown isn't half at Allen, at best it is 9-6. Next season I understand there may be no true road campus games if USC game is at Wichita.

Source: Mizzou expected to hire Miami's Haith as next coach

Wrong. I'm warning KU "faithful" that Frank Haith may not be as bad as most of the posters want to believe. Also reading past comments the majority of posters seemed to urge blind faith allegiance to Gill when he was hired because of what he did at Buffalo, yet a number are ready to call hiring coach with a better record at an equally tough place a bad decision before he even coaches a game at MU. Haith will probably be as successful as Gill. If you think that is bashing KU that's your problem.
