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.

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.

I just watched the clip. A little disturbing, but one also has to remember that he had just come off all weekend contract negotiations and decisions about uprooting his whole family to come to Lawrence and the pressures and obvious self questioning of whether he is up to the task or not. I'll wait to see what he is like on the sidelines before I question is mental status. Hell, I have moments like that every couple of days and none of my pts has ever accused me of having dimentia.

It IS a little disturbing, isn't it? And yet the guys on this board are all menstruating like crazy and calling me disrespectful and asking that I be banned!

It's kinda awesome.

I actually suspect that you DON'T have days like that.

Whether Miles suffers from "dementia", I don't know. I'm not doctor. I've heard of "mini-strokes. Or maybe it's some kind of pharmaceutical haze. I hope he's OK, for his sake.

I just know that that level of mental falling-through-a-hole is eff'd up, especially when you're on the job, onstage, and discussing your own area of expertise.

I mean...I can't find examples of Miles doing it in his past positions, nor of other coaches or -- any professional -- doing that unless there's an issue.

The freaked out ladies on their rag will now resume their spectacular B&M'ing.

You don’t have to be a Rhodes scholar to be able to avoid going into a dark mental vacuum during a press conference. The guy was unable to think. At all.

Watch the vid, at 23:00.

And then I challenge you to post someone else doing something similar while speaking within their own area of expertise, on the job, not drunk.

I mean, it’s so common, right?

Should be easy.

I heard Blair Kerkhoff of the KC Star, who was at the press conference, say Miles' pause was a little awkward but that he took it as he was just trying to be ultra careful not to say the wrong thing.

As for not being a candidate for the other coaching openings, Miles has been one of the hottest names floating around for the last couple of years. But many think since KU hired him he must not be worth a crap.

I don't think he would have any trouble finding a job if he wasn't here.

I listened to Hawktalk and he sounded much more relaxed and personable. He was telling stories and joking with Hanni.

Moose has it right. Nothing to be concerned about. Let's judge him by what happens on the field next fall.

The factors involved have been discussed about the video, but the reality is that Miles has miles to go to get this program off the ground. He probably was thinking about it as he was answering to get the maximum exposure from the media event. If he got thru this, he was thinking, then he could do what he does best. Hire a staff, recruit kids at the same time, thinking about early commitment period in December, etc. Riding a bike is easy if you have done it before. Beaty's bike was too hard to master for him. On the rag? Not willing to go there...

The upshot of my post was that the new coach would not have been hired if he truly had a mental deficiency due to age. Many unknown factors here. Let's give him a fair shot before the criticisms begin!

Seen too much? Are you a mental health professional, or a neurosurgeon, or someone else that would actually know? I doubt it.

Actually moose1 has been more mellow lately as well. But your point is well taken.

However, if Miles turns comatose on the sidelines or is caught napping in a golf cart (scooterman) in the afternoons I may change my mind.

As in, I’ve seen KU make bad football decisions for too kong, under many administrations, to take anything on trust.
