Willis starting for VT. Announcers say Willis happy to finally have talent around him to show his skills. Announcers also call Lawrence a sleepy town.

Announcers say Beaty didn't want Willis but Willis enrolled at KU anyway. They are also saying Willis is a good passer but also a good strong runner.

I heard that, and I believe they said Lawrence was a sleepy environment which I took as an allusion to the atmosphere in our stadium compared to that in VT's.

I know for a fact that's 100% NOT true. Kid did just about anything and everything he could to get kicked off the team at KU and Beaty didn't do it.

I agree, and their not wrong currently. Just amazed that they can't seem to get Kansas out of their mouths lol. like they had a bad experience here once and this is their chance to get their two cents in.

Until I hear it from Willis or Beaty's mouths I take it with a grain of salt. It's the announcers interpretation of what Willis said that they are relaying.

Doubt Willis will tell all what happened until he's a lot older if he ever does give any detail. Don't think Beaty will ever say anything publicly either. I've got more than 1 very solid source on this subject as well as some first hand knowledge.

So what happened? Was he a typical drunk bar kid that liked to fight? Let us know....a friend of mine's son goes to VT and was asking me why this kid isn't still at KU, and I told him I thought he had some off the field issues here that basically kept him down on the depth chart.

Just went back and listened to the announcers exact words again. Sounds more like they're talking about his initial contact with Beaty after he took over as KU HC. If that's the case, then only Beaty and Willis's family know what was said and how it was put.

Announcers today were simply pointing out the irony of not allowing Willis to remain here as the firm starter when DB was switching back and forth today with the Stanley/Bender ping pong.


QB play is THE most important position player needed to win games.

You could say that was 1 of the things he liked to do.

You obviously have no clue of all that went on behind the scenes with Willis at KU. Beaty gave him multiple and I mean multiple chances to stay on the team here.

Former QB Reesing came back recently from Texas and garnered a OUI. Are you saying DB would have kicked him off the team during the Orange Bowl year? Hypothetical I know but still Willis was his best chance to remain HC.

Yes both me and the announcers know little about irony. Rumor mongering is the best route to take to excuse DB shortcomings.

I know ironic situations as do the announcers, who also pointed out DB would have been better off with Willis stability than the "terrible twos" we see now.

Greer was terrible at times today also as he let ball control go to hell in the red zone. Probably put him out of Heisman contention...
