We'll see. Time will tell. Negative speculation does not help. Let's encourage as opposed to discourage. Everyone wants (KU fans / alumni) want the same thing. Let it play out.

I have now learned the hard way to check my expectations at the front door. We have had "great" teams in the past only to disappoint. How can we be a consistent top 5 DIV 1 team year and after year with only two national championships in the past 30 years? I have lost count over the years as to the number of times we have been a #1 seed come tournament time. I love coach Self, I like the talent on this year's squad and its corresponding potential, BUT I have had similar expectations in the past. I will enjoy the journey once again as I bleed Crimson & Blue, but life is too short. Now I live in the moment and will not let my passion overwhelm me anymore. And yes winning 14 consecutive conference titles is impressive. But how many other Big 12 teams have won an NCAA BB championship? RCJH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 1971 KU grad. Given our track record over the past decade, why do we still spend $$ on football? Perhaps we could spend it on other sports where our facilities and coaching staff would enable KU to be more competitive in other DIV 1 sports? I was fortunate as a student to attend the 1969 Orange Bowl and two final fours as a yell leader. We were also competitive in track & field. Can someone tell me that the KU is not losing revenue in its continued pursuit of football? Someone suggested dropping down to FCS. I am curious as I don't know the answer, are there any other P5 conference schools that have a FCS football program? If not, then why should we? I attended the Insight Bowl in 2008 in Tempe Az where we beat Minnesota. What have we done since?
