Re: CK plans on holding 10 spots out of 25 man class for transfers

Kinda feel like Weber’s approach to 2021/2022. Time will tell.

Re: other schools coaching news and stuff ...

I wonder how many coaches from other schools are directly or indirectly sending word to some of these better players? I suppose the players are allowed to contact other schools before entering the portal. Either way, the damage being done is significant.

Re: Les Miles could be in some trouble

KU’s administration seems intent on keeping the football program at the bottom of D1. The portal came at a bad time for the hawks.

Re: other schools coaching news and stuff ...

Isn’t KU’s case going to be handled by the special committee? I hope they scorch the hawks, but I’m skeptical.

Re: Chrissy Carr in Transfer Portal

Her departure will hopefully improve the team, but Mittie remains. My question is this...if Carr’s presence was so disruptive, why didn’t Mittie sit her at the end of the bench next to her dad? Come on! Who is running the program? Terrible look for KState WBB. Not unexpected, however.

What excuse is coming from the head coach? Covid? Youth?

Re: Reality versus optimism. Tough to handle.

I don't want any semblance to professional sports - i.e. paying college athletes. There would be no fair way to do it, let alone try and manage or enforce limits. Your big name, rich schools (ND, Texas, Ohio St. etc.) can simply afford buy the best players. I also agree, where would it stop in rela...

Re: Reality versus optimism. Tough to handle.

Players should (and don't they already get some??) get some sort of stipend relative to the cost of living in their area to give them spending money and account for the fact that they aren't able to get a part time job. However, I'm not for giving them large sums of money that then turns college sp...

Re: Reality versus optimism. Tough to handle.

can you imagine trying to compete with ku mbb if they're allowed to buy players above board rather than under the table? It would certainly shine a bright light on what’s now just speculation. And what could be ugly (and possibly tragic) is how some 18-22 year-olds handle their newly-found riches. ...
