Re: Recruiting

If the coaches just didn’t think he was worthy of a scholarship, that’s one thing. But all of the sudden coming up with a scholarship a few weeks later once he had Pac-12 offers makes it look more like they were interested but were maybe taking the kid for granted. Like others have said, we don’t ha...

Re: Recruiting

I think the number one reason for not having a scholarship for Jake would likely be how many schollies are currently committed to OL. When you look at our depth chart, we bring back at least ten guys for the next two years. I don't think we should put words in the coaches' mouths at this point and ...

Re: Recruiting

That’s too bad. Hate losing a donor and legacy kid.

Somehow we had an OL scholarship for the unheralded son of our much maligned DC, but not a legacy kid that was getting Pac-12 offers. Not a great look if the above is all true.

Re: Recruiting

I hope Yaro comes, but given the number of QBs on the roster and glaring needs we have at other positions, I have to think he was asked to hold off signing in December as we evaluated the recruiting landscape and our needs. If so, Yaro is rightfully doing the same. It's possible that he just wanted ...

I just don't see us NOT dropping a game or two in addition to losing to SDSU again. Gonna need to see this team actually win a road game before I get sucked into this crap again.

Re: Redemption!

Redemption? Nah.

One win at home over a crappy Air Force team does not redeem prior blowout losses to Air Force, UNLV, and the most embarrassing choke job I’ve ever seen at BSU.

Winning the conference tourney is the only hope for redemption.

This was a “good start.”

It was an ugly incident. De Souza will likely get hit hard, which is no real loss for KU. I could see McCormack and Garrett serving suspensions too. We’ll see.

When two of your three best players are bigs that don’t shoot, you’re going to have to do some line-up gymnastics. Here’s hoping Smi...

Any news on the recruiting front? We are 3 weeks from signing day and everything has been hush hush. Do we have official visits scheduled? Seems like the 25th would be a big weekend.
Still the dead period until this weekend I think, so not surprising we’ve not heard much.
