What is your prediction for the final game Beaty coaches and why are you picking that game?

Nicholls, CMU, Rutgers, Bay, OkSt, WV, TT, TCU, ISU, KSU, OU or Texas.

I decided to add this thread since the recruiting thread is pretty much dead until we get a new coach.

I will go way out on a limb and predict he doesn’t get fired this year.... I think our junior and senior classes are tired of losing and they will turn our fortunes around along with a significantly improved offensive line. Past history would say I am an idiot for making such a prediction but it gives me reason to look forward to this coming year. I am sick of losing and I think the team is too so I am hoping they dig deep and find a way to get 5 or 6 wins. Eternal optimism

I think if they fire him when recruitment opens up it would be a mistake, cause then recruits would look at us like what the hell are they doing and not commit. If they fire Beaty wait and announce a coach after your target has had their bowl game.

Are you saying they should wait to fire him until after the last game because that will help with recruiting?

Beaty will be fire after KU loses to Rutgers and drops to 1-2. That is assuming they can somehow beat Nicholls St. If they can't, Beaty is gone after 1 week. A new coach will then be named by the end of the season so he can get out and recruit his ass off. The new early signing date really makes things difficult.

DB loses to NSU and he is out the door before Keegan has a chance to write the story. Me honestly thinks the man is gone before the end of September.

If he is going to get canned I would prefer it to be early rather than late in the season.

Long strikes me as someone who is going to make sure he has all his Ts crossed and given he isn't starting until August I doubt he will act quickly

I think he gets to the Baylor game. We will be 1-3 (at best) after that loss. I know that 1-2 or even a possible 0-3 against that weak non-con is enough to fire him, but I think he will get the first Big12 game before being canned.

It will also show how pathetically far behind Beaty has us, further supporting his firing. In what will be year two for Rhule, he will crush us by at least 42 points in Waco. He came in last year with a bunch of Freshman and walk-ons and kicked the crap out of us in Lawrence. With a two year head-start on him, Beaty has us at least a decade behind what Rhule is doing at Baylor.

If KU wants to salvage this recruiting class, then Long could fire Beaty mid-season and hire a new head coach that is not employed this season, like Bielema or Miles. Then they could start recruiting during the season.

If KU wants to hire a coach that is coaching this season, then it will be tough for the new coach to build much of a recruiting class, since the early signing day is in December. However, the benefit is getting a coach coming off a winning season.

I also think Beaty gets canned after the Baylor game. I would be OK with sacrificing a recruiting class if it means getting a good coach the caliber of a Chris Peterson at Washington, Matt Campbell at ISU and Gary Pinkel when he was at Missouri.

Firing Beaty after the WV game on October 6th looks like a good time. It gives Long 3 nonconference games and 3 conference games to make a decision on Beaty. He probably will be on a 4 game losing streak to Rutgers, Baylor, Oklahoma State and WV. Firing him after the WV game gives the players some time to feel sad during the bye week. Then they can start preparing for the road game at TT during the next week and be in a better mood.

Rarely do new head coaches get hired in the middle of the season. Beaty is either given the entire year or is fired in the middle and once again Bowen is the interim.

Newell wrote this in an article. "So let’s be frank here: An 0-3 start would be disastrous, while a 1-2 beginning wouldn’t be much better. Lose two of those three — in your fourth season on the job — and I wouldn’t think Long would need to see more to go ahead and make a move."

Do you think it is more likely Beaty gets fired mid-season or at the end of the season?

Hard to say. I would say 50/50. Also depends how many games we win up to the middle of the season.

Girod would not have hired a new AD like Jeff Long if he intended to keep Beaty. I think the plan is to get rid of Beaty as soon as he racks up enough losses this season so Long can get a head start on hiring a new coach.

The idea of Bowen as interim coach is as likely as Zinger coming back as Asst Coach. Zero chance.

No one can hire someone in the middle of the season because a)the coach they want is currently employed or b) no one can expect to install a new offense or defense in the middle of the season.

Well, the coach being hired could be someone other than a currently employed individual. I believe an interim coach for the remainder of the year is very possible. Just not the BBF of DB.

Could be but installing a new philosophy and culture is not going to be easy in the middle of the season.

DB strategy now is to not lose. It doesn't mean a huge change like you believe at mid-season. There is no winning culture now either. Not going to make a difference for this year DB or no DB.

I know you want to make some kind of point here, but it's pointless. The sooner we fire the DB regime is over, the better. Yes, the team won't win any more or less this year, but the players will be relieved of the responsibility of getting the guy canned. Get it over with now and give all other potential candidates a chance to think about the Kansas University brand that they will want to create. DB never knew what "a brand" meant in all his four years here.

If I'm reading you right, then if somehow KU made a bowl game this year (I'm not predicting this BTW) it'd be bad because it would have been in spite of coach Beaty and not because of him? Seems a little weird on the surface here.

I have watched enough KU football coached by Beaty to know he is not the right coach for KU. The regression in stats last season back up what I saw on the field. If Beaty lucked into a 5-7 season then Long might keep him and that would just delay the rebuild under the new head coach.

You can't fire him now because there is no one else to take over. You don't seem to grasp that.

Yeah, I get that we've all seen the results and it doesn't look good, but if we somehow went 6-6 this year wouldn't coach Beaty have a lot to do with that? Either the team would be playing a lot better because of better improved coaching or they'd play well enough to go 6-6 because of raw talent despite poor coaching which in turn means Beaty has been recruiting quite well.

Again, I'm not predicting any of that is going to happen nor do I expect it to happen, but rather I'm just taking the logic behind your hypothetical to its ends which would mean either coach Beaty learned from his mistakes and became a much better game day coach or he's been recruiting well enough to overcome his game day coaching mistakes. If the former is true then you'd think people wouldn't want him fired anymore and if the latter is true then he may still get the axe but it'd buy him a few more years I'd think and leave the roster talent in very good shape for a new coach.

Beaty is far too stupid on game day to win any close games, provided his game plan even gets him in a close game. He'll study his "analytic charts" then determine that the team that doesn't fumble in the last 2 minutes wins the game 89.78 % of the time, so his focus will be to not fumble. The man is simply a boob not attached to a decent body with a headset for a nipple.

If Beaty took KU to a bowl game, then I am happy and it's the correct answer. It's about the football program winning, not who is the head coach.

"You can't fire him now because there is no one else to take over..."-58.

I don't think you are reading what you post anymore. Of course, we can replace the most inexperienced, unqualified, boob, KU has overpaid to manage their football program, in a moment's notice with an interim one. And I heartily recommend that it happen sooner than later.

The hypothetical 6-6 season for DB would result in a discussion about why he was so pathetic in his earlier years. But, face it kman, he isn't capable of running a lunch counter, let alone suddenly winning 6 in 2018. Not even a discussion point at this juncture of his "career".

I know you love to keep hope alive for each new season and I do too. You and I just hope for different things. Girod did not hire Long to keep Beaty and that is a good long term decision for the KU football program. Get onboard Kman because you know Beaty needs to go.

I thought I was clear in that I wasn't predicting nor expecting a 6-6 type season, but rather taking your earlier statement on face value. That statement just came off weird to me if you applied the logic of it to a hypothetical good season as that'd most definitely change a lot of things for a lot of people. Again, I'm not saying I think it'll happen. Just taking it to its logical potential ends.

Yes, I'm almost always hopeful at the beginning of a season and optimistic (as reasonably can be expected) but I wasn't pushing that at all. I agree with Maximus, I'm on board with KU football and I don't care who's at the helm. I care about KU winning again. I wouldn't care one way or the other if coach Beaty somehow pulled it out and turned us into a consistent winner again or if he's fired immediately and some other coach comes in and turns us into a consistent winner. Bottom line, I''m on board with KU football and not any particular coach. So, I don't really think you and I hope for different things as I think we both want KU to start winning again.

I do think Girod hired Long to "fix" our football program whatever that may mean as I think Girod has confidence in Long's ability to make the correct decisions to make that more likely than not. Ever since I first met Girod and talked to him and later read up on him I've had confidence in him. more than I've had in a KU chancellor in quite a while now. He understands how a good athletic department and in particular good football and men's basketball teams are important to and helps out the university as a whole, including the academic side. I also like that he's a genuine KU sports fan and has been one for a long time before he became chancellor.

It'd only be a heavily participated in discussion if it actually happened.

It's just a weird idea to me that if somehow Beaty got us to a bowl game that'd be worse as it would probably mean he's the HC for more time, but that would also seem to suggest that he got better as a HC, or at least better enough to get us to a bowl game. Just a strange idea to me.

I guess you could say it was just a fluke maybe and that's why it would be worse (cause he'd go back to sucking the next year)?

pizzanbeer had the idea of not giving DB a chance to remain if 6-6 was to suddenly pop out in 2018.

I have said before that Satan could be coach if only he would win some games. My opinion is unchanged. So switch DB with Satan if he wins 6 this year.


The reality is after 3 years, Satan is ALL-TIME the worst P5 D1 HC in the history of NCAA coaching, IMO.

I don't think you are reading what you post anymore. Of course, we can replace the most inexperienced, unqualified, boob, KU has overpaid to manage their football program, in a moment's notice with an interim one. And I heartily recommend that it happen sooner than later.

The hypothetical 6-6 season for DB would result in a discussion about why he was so pathetic in his earlier years. But, face it kman, he isn't capable of running a lunch counter, let alone suddenly winning 6 in 2018. Not even a discussion point at this juncture of his "career".
Rinse, repeat.

I predict the kids know what is about to happen and that Beaty is shown the door with his golden chute at 0-5.

I also predict our next coach happens to be a guy that likes to crash Harley's with young blondes on the back, and I have NO problem with that. As shitty as our program has been since we committed suicide by firing Mangino, I am fine cheating to win.

RCJHKU!

HH - we think alike. Get the guy here & give him his own bike along with Sturgis VIP room in August each year.

Last game for Beaty, 2038 BCS National Championship Game. A nail-biting victory over the Clemson Tigers. He rides out into the sunset. Calling it now

Maybe Beaty's last game should have already happened? Urban Meyer might be fired and therefore he will be labeled a disgraced coach. KU is a disgraced football program so sounds like a match made in heaven. Meyer regains his good name at KU and leads them to decent standing then moves on leaving one of his assistants in his place with a system installed.

We'd be a lot better than decent here at KU if Urban Meyer were our coach. He's arguably the best coach in the business right now.

If he actually becomes available, can we afford NOT to offer/hire?
