Don't think the wishbone is making a comeback! grin


Don't have to play the bone to play smashmouth...ask Mark Dantonio.

I did opine about going to a wishbone running type of offense, but realize you HAVE to recruit the linemen to run it FIRST. Only Mangino believed in getting absolute monsters on both sides of the line first. Today's spread doesn't really allow teams to live and die by the bone, anyway.

It isn't so bad...Lawrence is 25 minutes and KC is less than an hour.. Housing prices here are a fraction of what they are paying in KC right now as is the traffic.

I live in KC and its worth the extra housing costs. I go to the V.A. hospital a few times a yr in Topeka and drive around when I do...there is nothing good about it. Hell 3 individuals have flipped me off in traffic there on those occasions. Never has happened to me in metro KC in 4 yrs I have lived here. And compared to Atlanta where I moved from KC traffic is nothing..

Phog - as a kid growing up in Lawrence I remember going on the roof to watch the “tornado alley” storm in Topeka. Look up the pictures as it was horrible. Wiped out blocks of homes. Stay in KC...

I think I was one of those that flipped you off. You are a horrible driver and a menace to other good drivers...please stay in KC.

Y’all don’t worry about Central Michigan. We beat them pretty easily despite turnovers early.
Schedule for Kansas is ranked 100+ out of 130, so there should be some wins. If not, look into Toledo, Akron, or somewhere in Ohio. Some good coaches come out of there. Then again Nick Saban was born and raised in The mountains of West Virginia.

Kentucky and Kansas together couldn’t beat the Alabama’s, tOSU, OU, etc
Given their resources Texas hasn’t figured it out either.
I think Lane Kiffin would be an improvement for Kansas. He can recruit, have to pay him and convince him to give up all that ass he’s getting on the sunny Florida beaches.

That SBNation article was written at about a third grade level. While I have stated in the past that it might be something to consider, the other thing one has to realize is that if we DO drop football, we will NOT be in the Big XII anymore. With that, Bill Self will NOT be our coach anymore. He simply will NOT coach a program that is NOT in the P5.

We MUST MUST MUST invest in our program IF we want to have a chance in hell of it being successful. This involves bringing in a REAL coach with credentials, giving them an open checkbook, and realizing it may be up to 8 years before we see tangible results (knowing that rather than wins the early years, we may have to just be satisfied with competing and staying close). The days of win now or you are gone only apply to teams that have had recent multigenerational success.

Basically look at our program as a 2005 Lamborghini....we bought it new, and damn was it fun for the first few years. Now we have decided that we want to keep it, drive it regularly, but once the warranty wore out (in 2009), we quit taking it to the dealership that is the only one that can maintain it. Now it is leaking oil, running like shite, transmission barely shifts, cooling leaks everywhere, and it hasn't been detailed since 2009. But we want to keep it! Well, the bill will be close to buying it new, but it's time to book it into a stall.

RCJHKU!

Good analogy HH! I would say the old sports car has been stuck in reverse since the phat man turned the keys over to guys who simply don't know how to drive.
