Frustrating not to land a 2 event thrower like Kord Ferguson from just down the road.

Make it a team sport for me — Nationally ranked shot and discus thrower Kord Ferguson, a senior at Ottawa High, signed with Wichita State recently. To Ferguson, track and field is best enjoyed as a team sport. While he has big individual goals, the idea of competing at a school where the team is emphasized is attractive.

Kansas State was his second choice and he also considered Kansas and Missouri.

“I just fell in love with the way (WSU) views track and field,” he said. “It's such an important thing to them, the team aspect. You're there to help the team win meets and win conference meets.” Wichita Eagle

It would be nice to get the men's team up to the level of the women's.

Well maybe just maybe the KU mens Track Team sucks balls, kind of like this board. It's a team effort and one person cant right the ship.

Recruitment needs to start at home. One big time star can make headlines and draw attention to the program.

I watched Ferguson throw the Discus unattached at the WSU KT Weideman this last weekend. What speed and form! 190'.

Kid is going to be a beast. Cooper from KU may develop into a 200' thrower.
