Love how J. Daniels took the reigns last season, sacrificed his red-shirt season and help lead the team in the final games of the season and another great victory of BEVO and their entitled mentality fanbase.

In reading this article, and focusing on the opening paragraph.

I can't help but to think about Matt Rhule and his Coaching career @ Baylor.

He bit the bullets and focused on rebuilding the Baylor Bears program and did an outstanding job on recruiting Freshman each year @ Baylor.

Granted, he moved on to the NFL. But, his Era @ Baylor truly corrected the path in a matter of 2 seasons. Only beat Kansas with a team highly concentrated with mostly Freshman players.

But, those Freshman matured and grew up and look where they were after 4 years under Rhule and Assistant Coaches.

Sure it helped that Baylor is situated in Waco TX. But the correct decision was made on who to hire and lead the program out of the darkness that had enveloped the program from Briles Era.

I feel like Coach Liepold is the correct hire for the Jayhawks........

But, I know that the focus needs to be on the development of youthful players and not on constant influx of transferring players who didn't get enough playing time @ former so called Higher Learning Institutions.

This Portal Transfer system has created just another form of an Entitlement minded system (instead of working to become knowledgeable and mature as ONE with your respective teammates).

Truly LOVE how Devin Neal expressed his LOVE for Lawrence, KS. and mature decision to step out of the BOX and desire to be a LEADER and make a difference for the University of Kansas and the Jayhawks Football program.

THAT folks is a LEADER........

Dirk,

I did see that article.

The way things are trending, the B1G is positioning themselves to have a big portion of Notre Dame regular rivals within the borders of the B1G Conference. 1 exception is Boston College. Otherwise, Notre Dame will be playing teams that are not in Super Conferences.

ProtownHawk (Michael Maris) says...

B1G is waiting for the Golden Domer's to come to their senses........

Add ND and 1 more PAC University, the B1G will then close the Expansion DOOR.....

Stanford, Utah & Oregon all fit the B1G academic model synonymous with the B1G standards

Which PAC School will BEG the most???????

My bet is on Stanford.......

Sad to lose ANY young committed recruits.

But, the transferred athletes (whom recently committed to the Jayhawks program) has me excited to watch the future progress Coach Liepold and staff will stamp on this football program.

Side note, I find it damn funny that U. of Colorado may soon be rejoin the Conference.

Appearance of Greener pastures don't always TASTE the same....... Sure, Nebraska, Missouri Athletics Dept may reap financial rewards of joining the B1G & SEC Conference.

But, their respective football programs have NEVER been the same since leaving the Big XII Conference.

OU & Bevo fans may soon experience that same feeling of being in the middle of the PACK.

To quote Legendary Coach/Owner Al Davis, "Just WIN Baby......."

THAT'S what it comes down to........

ProtownHawk (Michael Maris) says...

I can certainly understand him transferring out.

But, truly sad to see him leave Lawrence and University of Kansas and the Jayhawks baseball program......

Good luck young man.....

Thanks for writing an update on this Stadium renovation subject.

But, it's actually time to see words placed into action......

Reading this story, it appears that close to $100,000,000.00,'s has been collected.

Yet, still nothing is being done...... So, where's the $$$$$$$ at? If there's no actual commitment to such renovations......

Then, stop talking about it and move on.....

ProtownHawk (Michael Maris) says...

Not worried about Flavio......

Hope to see Maui Ahuna in the MLB in a few years and having a successful career......
