Kingsbury out at T Tech. Fedora out at UNC. Maryland still looking. Others certainly still to come.

Glad we got Miles when we did.

Kingsbury would make a great OC here. He knows the Air Raid which is what Miles is lacking.

Not sure Miles would have been a good prospect for those other schools. Sixty-five years old with young-onset dementia. Those programs are way ahead of where KU is. But he IS a good fit for us at this particular time. A CEO type that will hire good coordinators, create buzz, jumpstart recruiting, get us to .500 seasons within 5 years and retire, leaving us in a good spot for a younger, more up-to-date HC.

I’m happy Miles is here. His press conference was jarring; the man has a problem. But he’ll be a fine CEO type coach for awhile.

But if you think those long blankouts at the presser were normal, I question your judgment. Not that I care. Flame away.

He has had those same blankouts since he was an assistant at Michigan.

Why do you insist on saying those cruel things? I had a sister die as a result of Alzheimer's, and there is nothing cute or clever about it. It is more than inappropriate for you to try to generate this terrible rumor.

Why don't you send an email to Girod about your concerns with Miles having symptoms of dementia? With Girod's medical background he could line up Miles for diagnosis and, if your concerns are validated, treatment to help with it. That would be a more productive action to take than yapping about it on a message board.

You are never going to be happy are you Kirk? You are like those long suffering Cubs and Red Sox fans that reveled in the fact that they were bad before they won the Series.

The guy had a couple long pauses, by my count two, in an hour press conference. Every other time he spoke lucidly. As a matter of fact he made more sense than any of the last three coaches. Hell you yourself were only able to point out one example.

We could have the next Nick Saban, and you wouldn't be happy. That might mean KU would be a winner, the stands would be packed, and tickets would cost too much. That might mean KU would get a new stadium, and it would not have the memories of the old one.

Kirk may be exhibiting some other medical issues including bizarre anger outbursts at inappropriate times. Sorry to hear about your sis oldalum.

As I said, I’m psyched about the Miles hire. He’s right for us, now. Original post said certain other programs would have sought him as HC. I don’t agree. I think there is a good reason for most relatively successful programs to look elsewhere.

For those of you who think I take Miles’s situation lightly or with any disrespect, you’re getting the wrong idea. My family too has cases of dementia. And Miles’s little pauses, those charming little mental absences? That’s what it looks like. That’s what it is. And Alzheimer’s is only one version of it.

Blankouts on the same level as the KU press conference, like at 23:20, below? Back at Michigan? He is extraordinary.

Please post examples.
