Deafening silence.

We will know he is serious about making some changes as soon as he passes out the "votes of confidence". Those are always the death sentence!

Maybe Girod does not have the money available to buyout Zenger and Beaty and the assistant coaches. The BGL extension of Zenger and the Zenger extension of Beaty and doubling of his salary were the biggest mistakes. I wonder if Zenger extended Beaty and doubled his salary to make the buyout more financially difficult for KU knowing that also would protect his job as AD.

Oh the money is there if he wants it. How about using the $300 Mill from the renovation fund.

Of course he did....zenger was covering his ass....and.Bernadette screwed KU on her way out by covering zengers ass.

My friend Vladimir said the Chancellor told him 'there is nothing to be done', this year.

I believe the previous Chancellor fitted Girod w/ hip high boots w/ that contract last summer.

Is Chancellor Girod the magic? He won't say.

It was his only realistic move. Who knows if he privately likes what he has to say publicly?

I can actually understand giving Beaty a fourth year, but giving Zenger an eighth year is insanity.

I wonder how low the attendance has to be to act on it. Can't believe they would tolerate only 10,000 fans per game.

Silence from Girod since before Coinflipgate and Billy Preston's off-road compliance adventure.

Coinflipgate as you call it is illegal?

Now that KU is amassing a Juco collection that Charlie Weis would be proud of, one has to wonder if Girod still thinks Team Beaty is building it "the right way."

Anyone who's followed KU football for more than four years knows what's going to happen over the next four years. Hint to Doug: It won't be good for fundraising.

Well, when Girod gives his AD a short leash and tells Zenger that Girod wants results sooner rather than later (per a few people), you now have a win now approach and a coach that's going to try to take shortcuts. Sad but true.

Nine is NOT nineteen. We are not at Weis' full blown jackassery yet.

You're right, this movie isn't a shot for shot remake of the Weis era. But you can still see the pattern.

I see the pattern that we make disappointing hires and after a couple years we're somehow surprised that they're disappointing.

Girod speaks! Memorial Stadium officially renamed to Booth Family Dumpster. #priorities

BFD will have a sign outside with a height indicator that tells fans "must be at least this rich and ambivalent about winning to matter."

The BFD. "We'll see how the Gooners do in the BFD." I like it. Very American. Reminds me of this:
