To answer your question, nope.
I spent more then my fair share of time following KU sports and I didn't even know there was a QB battle. I gave up on this program last year. Once our new AD gives Beaty the boot he should have gotten last season I'll consider paying attention again.

I'd be fine with that kind of figure as long as it's tied to performance. Football program posting .500 season records within 5 years, etc.

So, when we get blown out by them 42-6 in week two...can we fire Beaty then or do we have to wait until December?

Also something key to note about the difference in the Bridges case:
The impermissible benefit was the cost of a single meal...not possibly thousands of dollars like De Sousa.

Shannon, the NCAA can and will make decisions well before the investigation concludes.
They already ruled on Bridges at Michigan State based on the first release of info about this investigation.

"What would you ask from the families in the suit?"
Don't do things that screw over a program you agreed to join. I don't think that's too much to ask.
And if they do, any revenue we have to give up for the FF trip as well as the same amount as a FF trip if there is a post-season ban is the minimum we should sue them for.
The KUAD, as you point out, is a multi-million dollar organization...so punitive damages to the brand could also justifiably reach millions of dollars.
And that's what they should do. The price tag on the fines for doing this to a school should be enough to cause even multi-millionaires to feel the pain of it.

Multiple wrongs don't make a right.

After we still took them despite their behavior?
Good riddance if they leave then.

We've been playing with fire for years now. When's the last season we DIDN'T have an eligibility issue?
Self's be involving us with some pretty shady players for a while now and the chickens have come home to roost.

You assume the NCAA has any shame.
This case is not all that different than the UMASS case in 96 that cost them their FF banner.
In both cases, the schools knew absolutely nothing about the improper benefits...but they lost their banner just the same. We will too if the allegations prove true.
