Keep in mind that the in-state players and those around them have seen and heard constantly bad things about KU football for many years. Conversely, a kid from a far away place, along with his family and friends, hasn’t been bombarded with bad KU football news on a daily basis for many years. Thus, it’s logical that it will take multiple successful winning years to start getting the in-state recruits that KU coaches want.

Interesting. Nine of the ten transfer athletes are landing at Tier II/III schools. But on the flipside, many of those coming in through the transfer portal are coming from Tier 1 schools. KU appears to be trading up, and that is good.

Sherron Collin’s was a great player, but the fact that he went after Tyshawn Taylor as his assistant shows me he lacks the analytical skills and good judgment necessary to be a successful head coach, unless Tyshawn Taylor has a great track record built up as an assistant coach in the Midwest.

I meant division one colleges end top quartile of power five conference school transfer classes.

The big positive figure that jumps out at me on this article is having a transfer class that is ranked number 21 in the country. That is in the top 10% of all colleges and in the upper top quartile of power five conference schools. That is a phenomenal achievement for this coaching staff and a big part of college sports is recruiting good athletes.
I’m not going to try to extrapolate those figures into a number of wins for the season. However, this is a big move in the right direction. We have reason to be cautiously optimistic, but we must temper that with the perennial consistency of KU‘s ability to mess up its football program.

So Bryce Landon, do you have a record at what you do for a living that is as superior to your peers as Bill Self‘s record is superior to his peers?

This guy is an example for us all. He worked his tail off in obscurity for many years before getting a chance to start, or even play, late in his senior season. and because he’ll quietly put in the work, day after day, week after week, year after year, he was ready when the opportunity struck. More important than football, this guy is going to do good at the game of life. He’s the kind of guy employers and customers want.

3rd lowest penalties in the country is quite an accomplishment and speaks volumes for discipline and good coaching. This is something that portends good things to come.
