Heard there will be more than 40 recruits at the game. Not sure how many are offer guys.

Been too busy lately to communicate with anyone who would know names but did hear there were going to be some from both Louisiana and Texas coming up.

Yeah, go figure the coldest day in a couple weeks would be the day of the Spring game.

At least it won't be a blizzard like it will be in places like Boulder, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Not sure when any of those schools are having their Spring games though. Considering their locations and when Spring is in those places, maybe sometime in June?

Looks like a big fish out of LA is coming up for the spring game. Making a lot of waves too, as he's currently committed to LSU.

TJ Finley, a 6'7" 230 4 star QB out of Ponchatoula HS in Ponchatoula, LA is gonna be there. Believe he's coming on an official visit too.

Several 2019 class signees as well as some of the 2020 class commits will also be there. Guys like,
Will Huggins
Davonshai Harden, Jr.
Jayden Russell
Tyler Stottle
Amauri Pesek-Hickson
Mason Fairchild

Also a bunch of Alumni are coming back for the Alumni game(starts at 5:30PM) too. Guys like,
Aqib Talib
Chris Harris
Tyler Patmon
Bradley McDougald

to name a few,and I think these guys too, but not 100% on them yet,
Todd Reesing
Micah Brown

I'm sure there's plenty more coming too, but those are some of the guys I know (or think with the last 3) will be there off the top of my head.

No idea on attendance, but I imagine it'll be higher than it has been in years with the Les Miles factor and Rick Ross. Weather may affect the total though.

Hearing there may be 50 or more recruits now.

Agreed... on full screen. It’s my understanding a number of the fall games are going to be on + too.

You can do the free 7 day trial of ESPN+ and watch, then cancel the trial.

It was broadcast locally on 38 The Spot and Time Warner/Spectrum sports in the KC area too and Spectrum rebroadcasts it several times, but not sure if you can get access to it that way or not. Someone once told me they had found a way to do this as they had Spectrum as their cable provider but lived out of state. Don't recall the details though.

Haven't checked, but I think it may be available via KU Athletics website too if you pay for their online subscription stuff for media. Recorded radio coverage may also be available online.

I looked around and using my knowledge of how many people can potentially sit in each section and then estimating what percentage of seats were sat in with a photo I took I'd say there was between 11,000 and 13,000 people there yesterday. Maybe a few more as some people were kind of going in and out off and on.

Looks like all 3 of Reesing, Briscoe, and Brown made it too, with Briscoe winning the 12 foot tall player of the game award for the alumni game. Reesing had an INT also...he made one on Bobby Douglass, not threw one! LOL

Oh, and watching McDougald goin nuts on that scooter was HILARIOUS! hahaha

Forgot to add, Micah Brown got nailed in the head with a football on an incomplete pass to the end zone as he was shooting footage from the end zone for a project he's doing for some company that's making a video story on coach Miles.

Oh, and word was 77 total recruits showed up for the game! 77!!

Big big turnout for both recruits and alumni at the game! Was great.

Not sure how the Rick Ross concert went as I had to leave before it got started. At least it didn't rain at all, but the cold wind wasn't pleasant. I think that kept a bunch of fans away from both the game and the concert.

How did the team look for the game? What was expected? The offense to look better or the Defense? What was the final score?

Those 77 recruits might of been the total attendance. I took a gander at it on Spectrum and at least one side of the stadium was empty..

The only opened the west stands. I'd say there were as many in attendance as we averaged in 2018. Very solid turnout.

Overall, the first teamers looked good on both sides of the ball. The 2nd team O looked good as well, but the 2nd team D looked poor in the front 7 to me.

I'd say the best and deepest looking position groups were the DB group along with the RB's. Even without Pooka playing, our RB's looked very good and deep. I think we've got 3 very good RB's and another couple who are solid behind them still. Our DB's played really well also. Ferguson was all over the place and Torneden was flying around looking good too. Lee looked very good on run support as usual and real solid on pass coverage. I think both those groups will be among the best in the Big 12 at their positions.

Our OL looks better than it has in years and we've actually got some good depth here too. That may not be saying much when compared to how poor both the depth and play of our OL has been most of the past 10 years or so, but they looked like a solid Big 12 level OL to me which is a huge deal. They played best when run blocking, but struggled some on the pass blocking. Looked like they had the most difficulty when dealing with speed rushers on the ends in the pass blocking.

The LB's and DL look to be a work in progress but with some good pieces to work with. We're currently too thin at DL and LB. The 1st team guys played well, but beyond that a lot of guys are still finding their way or struggled. Just hope the guys coming this summer can help out both groups right away and I think several will.

The QB's looked OK overall, but not great. We've got some guys who can really run well at the QB spot though. Locklin looked very athletic and fast, while MacVittie looked like a load and was fast. Nobody threw the ball particularly well, but looked serviceable with MacVittie throwing the best ball though Fallin, the walk-on from Cali threw a nice ball too IMO.

In this new RPO style O though, I don't think the QB's being really good passers is going to be nearly as important as it is if we were going to still run some version of the air raid. The key here is quick good decision making and we look to have a couple guys who do that well. Also the ability of a QB to run the ball well in this O is big and we look to have some guys who can do that.

Just realized I forgot to mention the WR's. Takulve Williams looked really good and showed some impressive moves and serious speed. He looked to be being used more as a slot WR than a straight up WR though. Lassiter and Naylor looked good too. Neither played flawlessly and had a couple missed opportunities, but otherwise played well. Parchment struggled and had some dropped balls he should of caught. Charlot looked a lot quicker than he has since he's been at KU and he played well overall, but also had a couple dropped balls which is very unlike him. Kid has an iron grip and will out muscle just about anyone else for possession of the ball normally. Robinson played alright and had at least 1 good catch that I remember. I think we've got some good WR's that bring some different aspects to each of their games. If the QB's can get the ball close enough to them, I think they'll make most catches as they've got some really good size and strength and enough speed to make plays. I say it this way because I don't think our QB's have to make perfect passes to several of these guys to make completions as some of our WR's have an impressive catch radius.

Those are my impressions of what I saw. Hopefully someone else will chime in with theirs too.

Kudos to you beena for attending, if that's accurate.

Planning on being at the opening home game for the hopeful energy provided by Miles hiring. Not expecting a sudden surge of support but it will build IMO.
