This new signing period is odd. I expected some stragglers. Any offers to KS/Mo/OK/Co Preps? I expect Beaty ought to try and mend some fences here locally w/ some offers during this secondary period.

Based on the posters on here, Beaty doesn't give a single poop about KU or the fences.

He's just choosing his own salary, not recruiting, signing JUCOs, giving his coaches HUGE raises, and losing on Saturdays.

Right?

As for Pooka, Mike Scarborough (runs TigerBait) tweeted that "Pooka looks all Kansas. Nothing going on with LSU." in response to someone asking about LSU's shot on landing him.

I imagine he poops diamonds out his back side regular. AD Zenger gives a $800-900K immediate raise for one conf win in three seasons of failing. Not recruiting successfully (his strong suit), failing to sign his LA top recruit, giving his running backs coach an immediate raise for getting the top recruit to mention KU while committing to another school, and as always, losing each and every Saturday game at a 3-33 clip. Pretty close to what you said...

Yeah, holding off teams like OU, LSU, Texas, Florida, Okie St., Nebraska, etc. just to name a few along with getting a class that'll most likely end up in the upper 1/2 of D-1 football after having the record we've had over the past 3 years are all sure signs of someone who can't recruit.

Oh, so now you're shifting your measuring stick from signing any LA recruits to signing the top rated 1 as being the goal. Nice.

Wait, so Beaty is now in charge of what the coach's salaries are? Who knew! Wonder why he didn't give his boy Bowen a bigger salary right from the get go?

Beaty has signed up Harris (good so far), but as for a success at recruiting over three off seasons? weak for a strong suit of his...Two LA recruits signed does not a team make...and finally Beaty has to input into staff salaries or he is a REAL pretender at being HC here. Bowen is already overpaid for his defensive stats this last go-around at Kansas. Thank god!

I'd assume he had some input too, but that's not what you said.

If he didn't want to give Hull a razer, it wouldn't happen or he would be fired on the spot. Then a better HC would be hired.

So, if Beaty dictated the raise to coach Hull for all the verbal commitments he got back in February, why did all the other assistants get raises too? How about his own raise? He order Zenger to give it to him too?

Exciting guy to have. One that Meacham will love to have in this offense. Can be H-Back type of role that KU desperately missed last year after Mathews was out with heart problems.

Wow Pooka signing is a shock! I thought for sure he was going to LSU. Maybe he did the drama just to piss off LSU. I like this kid!

From reading some of his tweets, he wasn't impressed that LSU made a couple other guys a priority at RB.

Takulve, Mike Lee, Corione were all at the signing.

Hope he keeps that chip on his shoulder his entire career at KU!

A guy with the kind of talent he's got playing with a chip on his shoulder would be very tough for other teams to deal with.

All our guys need a chip on their shoulder, which I am not sure I have seen so far.

Nice getting Pooka signed! Any chance that the guys that have signed can start doing recruiting for KU and help land a couple other recruits?

Pooka is a three star. Wasn't Dom a 4 star?

Dom was a 3 star by some, 4 star by Rivals. He'll be a big weapon in the offense next year in the backfield. Pooka will be back and forth between slot and RB. They're not necessarily competing against each other per se.

If KU wants to make any noise next year they absolutely need a QB. I think we have seen enough of Stanley and overall I think Bender is a bad fit. If KUs O line was better Bender might work. I think they need a JUCO double threat QB that is ready to at now or a 5th year transfer, but. I doubt theree is a good 5th year that KU could get.

Other than the much needed HS OL for the future of the program Anthony Williams was the one target that I was most wanting to see sign with KU unfortunately he is also the one that I am most worried about actually qualifying and making it to campus

I think with his electric speed he is a Tony Pierson like athlete with great potential. does he have a Pierson like attitude and work ethic? time will tell, but if he does and he can make the mental/physical adjustments needed from HS to D1 athlete I think he has the opportunity to be a very good player (even if the only way this staff gets him involved is catching a bubble screens 3 yards behind scrimmage)
