@KUSTEVE - hmmmm. Would 82% be an overall good guess as opposed to picking each game 82% ? I think I see where you’re at here.
Bragg/Coleby in place of Perry seems like an upgrade. Graham and Frank are solid. Josh is long and athletic; supposedly a good defender. He should be more disruptive than Selden. Lucas is a year older and wiser. Not to mention Vick. This KU team should be killer defensively.
The reason why he reopened his recruitment is that he wants to take his time not rush into making a decision at this point and time
@ralster I have a pretty positive feeling about this post play by committee thing. Game in/Game out, we will miss Perry’s dependable scoring numbers (which in certain matchups bit the dust). Coach built the scoring offense around Perry. This season, scoring and planning options appear to be more diverse, perhaps harder to defend, at least by March. I am really looking forward to the progression of this squad. We are starting some very determined and hardnosed individuals. If Frank is able to come to terms with the role of a topnotch distributor, and if the top 9 kids stay relatively free of lingering injuries, this team will go far. What a bench!

@Crimsonorblue22 Nope that’s all ive gotten aswell. Kinda disappointed in Beaty’s injury reports as well as depth charts. Tell people about the injuries they will figure it out at some point, Changing the depth chart day by day hurts the team from a continuity stand point.
@justanotherfan Agreed. All about setting the right mindset. Reputation is earned. Respect is earned, although it can be easily argued that there is inequality in when that earned respect is actually shown…
Working for success is the true heart of the matter.
As my dad told me 35+ yrs ago: "Because we may look a little different or have a different name, you may have to work a little harder than the next guy."
Mom said it differently to me, as I was always someone who liked everyone to like me: “…you know, not 100% of people are always going to like you…there may always be 1 or 2 people who just dont like you, or your name, or your look, or the color of your shoes, or whatever…” (This helped insulate me against the very occasional situations I encountered along the way).
And what I have told my own 28yr old daughter a few yrs ago, as well as my 17yr old son: “Be careful about your habits and thought processes. Humans get good at what they practice. Coaches and teachers use that fact all the time. Dont get ingrained in the wrong things.”
@dylans Agree with your concept: IF KU wants a home-run hire/national “name” top 10 coach that would bring in 4-5star kids immediately (which would still take 2-3yrs to contend for the conf championship), then throwing BIG money is the only way to get top10 coaches to pay notice.
But, we also need to be EXTREMELY realistic about Beaty, and the conventional wisdom of giving him 5-6 years. That WmsFund alum, who is KU football’s biggest sole booster, made a statement that we would "really need to see on-field competetiveness by next season"…is simply a statement that requires much more elaboration. Do not poison the water in Lawrence with timetables not based in reality.
What I would tell any WmsFund fellow members is this: We already see Beaty routinely getting 3star and some 4star kids. Thats already better than Snyder…BUT, they are skinny 18yr olds. These 31+ kids on the roster all with 4.3 speed simply need to be given time to physically mature and get coached up–> only then will they be “better” than the 0,1,2,no-star guys at KSU. And only then will they be able to “compete” against the rest of the BigXII. I’d tell fellow WmsFund members, and KU nation at large, to GET realistic about this timeline.
This place doesn’t have any sweaters. They have them in stock at one of the Rally houses in Olathe I visited if you still want one @tubertigertank
Bugs / Requests
@benshawks08 Here are a couple of ideas for Windows 7, Int Explorer 11: Check your browser settings and see if you have disabled something for security protection. (Maybe check your firewall to see if it is blocking things, or your AV program. Might need to identify a Trusted site or something.) In Explorer you have to quit it completely and restart it if you make changes. Have you upgraded to the latest Java update? (Don’t agree to any toolbars you don’t want in this process, by the way.) Finally, does the page load otherwise ok but with only markers for the pictures? Or does it say something about certain things not loading? I know nothing about Firefox. (Actually, I just use my phone for the Board, but all the thing discussed above have helped with other sites.)
@approxinfinity Beware of ISIS hackers…This - http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/are-isis-hackers-trying-to-destroy-the-internet/ar-BBnEEQy?li=BBnb7Kz - is a top story & very interesting article from the MSN homepage today. Should this ever come to fruition the results could be catastrophic.
