Beaty mentioned that he liked how Meacham was using Schadler on the interview he did the first day. (I believe it's the video below)

Also sounded like Schadler was coming off a very serious surgery from last year where his organs were in the wrong places?

Crazy stuff. Glad he's healthy.

I always thought Schadler was too small for RB and a better fit at WR. I'm glad they moved him.

I'd be somewhat surprised if he got meaningful minutes at WR.

He's FAST...but we have like 16? scholarship WRs.

Is it possible he thought he had earned a scholarship and there were none available?
That's definitely possible as there were no spare initial counter scholarships open to give him 1. He'd have had to wait until 2018 to get a scholarship at KU if he was still on the team.

I don't know, I think he showed some good skill with the ball in his hands in 2015 and as you said he's fast. He's really fast. Coach Beaty said he may be the fastest guy on the team and you can't teach speed.

It will come down to how well he can run routes and how good his hands are to determine how successful he will or won't be. I really like his perseverance and hard work ethic. I think that explains how he's already back with the team after such major surgery last year.

His speed gives him a chance at WR. With the additional depth at RB he had no chance there.

Wonder why they don't use him as a kick returner. I remember he went for 6 in the 2015 opener.

Quiv and Schadler as KRs?

Takulve was a return specialist in Louisiana,

Charlot did punts...not sure on kicks.

Dom was a returner at times too.

We'll have some quick/speedy options.

Yeah I think they'll take Quiv off of KR. Let Schadler and Takulve do it. Charlot handle the punt returns.

I think they'll want to keep Quiv fresh for offense. They have options now instead on having to rely on Quiv to make plays with their speed, they have 4-6 guys who they can put back there and make some serious contributions in the return game.

Well I hope Beaty permanently removed Quiv from punt return duty. He fumbled way too many times last season.

Yep. On the bright side, I've heard he's showed better focus, and he's working out with an improved ethic and urgency now that he's going into his senior year.

I think he was permanently removed from return duties after the Texas game.

Beaty is smart enough to know that using him in 2017 as returner would be putting his job as HC on the line.
