KU football lands juco cornerback

Just for fun, Squawk, I will go with Charlie on this:

“You’ll notice that number I gave you – 25 scholarship players – leaving three spots; yes, we have action going on, but no, I can’t talk about it. The action won’t happen in days, but I definitely have action going on. Remember now, for each spot that I fill, that’s one less potential guy I can take next year. This morning, just to elaborate for you recruiting gurus, I laid out a three-year recruiting plan for our staff. For the junior college kids, you have to factor in that you’re going to get a large number of seniors hitting at the same time, so you never have your numbers dwindling where you’re behind the eight-ball. I laid out a three-year plan for every position on the team. We didn’t just cover next year; we covered the next year and the year after that – leading into the year after that. So for those of you who have written me off and said that I’ll be here for a short period of time, I’m sorry to disappoint you.”

What caught my eye at Wednesday's practice, complete with a mini-reaction to the recent KU-UDK showdown

Jesse Newell ‏ @ jessenewell
Last yr, a KU fball player was upset with quote I ran. Katy pulled me to the side to tell me. I considered it professional courtesy.

Or, then again, perhaps not bullying and a little more than zero chance it has happened to professionals in the field.

What caught my eye at Day 19 of Fall Practice

Matt,

I think the mystery player is Alexander Beglinger a JC offensive lineman who was a teammate of Turner Baty at City College of San Francisco.

Back on August 9th, he tweeted:

Coaching Search 2011: Day 10, 4:16 p.m. - More on June Jones, Auburn and Wisconsin OC Paul Chryst; Plus, is Zenger now targeting NFL guys?

Hell no, Koetter is NOT a good option:

During that period, 21-year-old running back Loren Wade exhibited increasingly erratic and threatening behavior toward female athletes, including his girlfriend. When faced with the option of reporting Wade's serious misconduct to ASU campus police and to student affairs officials, Koetter did neither.

Had he reported the behavior, his star player surely would have been kicked out of school.

Koetter played it safe -- for his football team and for his career. The coach reinstated Wade, who was already in trouble for a different problem, to the team for spring 2005 practices. The earlier trouble involved Wade accepting cash payments from an ASU employee, which had gotten him suspended.

Incredibly, Koetter reinstated Wade after learning that he had threatened to kill a female gymnast, after receiving a report from the women's soccer coach that players were terrified because Wade had a gun, and after knowing Wade's girlfriend had called police fearing Wade was going to destroy her apartment after he had threatened her life.

Matt,

Please tell me Zenger has a clue.

KU coach list shuffles in six days of searching

Zenger better not be serious about Koetter.

http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2006-0...

Unlike Evans, Koetter has had extremely serious problems with his players off the field. Two players have faced sexual-assault allegations and two other players were kicked off the team for secretly filming a coed disrobing. Another player was dismissed after pulling a knife, and another for firing a gun.
