So just how much is Zenger paying you to spread all the bullshit, Kman? Only you can't see the obvious.

Honestly, I'd be telling him to take everything into consideration not just the current state of the football team.

Things like the town. The people there in that town and the school. The school itself. The academics. The support staff. The facilities. The commitment the school has, etc., etc.

Obviously, he's going to play football and things in and around the program matters a lot and in regards to if the coach gets canned 2 years down the road, I'd tell him to answer this question for himself, if playing football wasn't part of your life would you still enjoy being a student there?

I wouldn't be trash talking any of his potential choices because of how their team's record looked. I'd try(IMO hard to do this as a parent!) to give him more free reign to make his own choice. OK, maybe with 1 exception, I'd threaten to disown him if he picked mizzery! LOL


Again, it's not just the record. It's going somewhere he can succeed and make the most of his ability. I can't help you if you believe that the KU QB situation, offensive line, etc is going to help this kid. If this was 2008, absolutely kid... come on over. You CAN succeed here. But with the current state of this program? How can anyone say he'll do better here then he would at a school with a quality and reliable offense? Again, this is an opinion and there is zero chance that Devonta reads this or gives the smallest rat's a$$ about this post. He's not going to read this at all. And if he does, who wants a player that is swayed by some random post. Give him more credit, let him do what he wants to do which is play football and get drafted and play professionally. I can't see how KU can provide that for him.

See what obvious?
The fact that our team sucks?
Seen it every week. In person on the home games even.
That the fanbase is in near 100% revolt and wants everyone fired?
Seen it.
The fact that coach Beaty isn't getting fired?
Seen it.
The fact that 2 of the highest rated and regarded recruits in the last 40 years or so of KU football are still committed to KU despite all of the shi|t going on?
Seen it.
The fact that despite what zimsjim thinks, recruits and their parents do often read or browse this and other message boards and it sometimes has an effect on their decisions.
Seen it. Know it for a fact from several parents of several recruits over the years.

So, what fuc|kin bullshit are you talking about?

My wish and desire to keep those guys committed and that the best possible recruiting class signs with KU regardless of who our coach is or isn't?

My undying support of KU FOOTBALL no matter how bad it's gotten or who our coach is?

My realization that actively getting on KU message boards and making arguments AGAINST KU football is not only dumb, but potentially actively destructive of the thing all of us here proclaim to be fans of?

My realization that coach Beaty is going to be our coach next year no matter what any of us think and the same probably goes for Zenger?

So, tell me what bullshit are you talking about?

Great, maybe you can call up his folks and let them know he shouldn't come to KU and why.

Again, I just don't get this self destructive impulse.

There's tons to be pissed about with KU football right now, but to claim to want a highly regarded recruit who's still committed to KU to end up signing with KU but feel compelled to make a thread on the local KU football message board about why he shouldn't come to KU is just bewildering to me. It's beyond nonsensical.

I think we should drive down and see the guy in person. Only eight or nine people in the world actually read this message board. What if Devonta Jason isn't one of them??!!

Note: Assuming it's legal to un-recruit someone

Ouch!

Probably not too far off as this board isn't anything like what it used to be a few years ago.
