@jayballer73 This is hire is really cool for me because his dad was my high school coach for 2 years before he retired after the 2001-02 school year. Les was last at So. Mss, his most prolific experience as OC was at Mississippi St. as he helped develop Dak Prescott.
for myself - -I have no clue on the guy - -I’m not that intelligent on these football Coaches - if they good hire bad hire - - -I will say though for what it’s worth - a lot or seems like a lot of the people there doesn’t think it is a good hire at all. – Now me I can’t say - -does look like he has had some good stops. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
@BShark If I’m a bettin man - -I would be putting money on K-State as you say " Drilling KU " even without the win yesterday. I’ve seen enough of these K-State games this year - -they really struggle , do we beat them? - -I dunno.
Although just like the article I read from KC Kingdom this morning, - - We are improving - like the article say , there have no blowouts this year , defense is improving , for sure better then last year , Also pointed out from the article if not for Pooka being suspended in our 1st game against Nichols - -we now would have 4 wins for the year , Improvements are being seen.
3 wins total in his first 3 yrs , and 3 this year alone again should be 4. - K-State is a very possible win. - - Now take note I said very possible - - - Now win? - - I dunno , just like you don’t know . – " Drilled ? – na I DOUBT that. - - – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
So, who do you think the next coach might be? Look, it’s obvious Beaty is going to get the ax, he doesn’t win, and - with his job security being a constant public issue - can no longer recruit. So, who should it be? Please (though it might not be too bad of an idea) don’t say Mangino, that is a non-starter… I got one for you, Stoops, the fired Oklahoma DC (think about it for a minute…).
| but its clear he has his eyes elsewhere right now
Yeah that was my main takeaway, that he is actively talking about who has the best chance to swipe him from KU. And look I get it KU is a dumpster fire but this is why early football commits don’t mean much. Players are actively recruited while they are committed.
Agreed. Football recruiting is a mess and dumpster fire.
If FSU wants him they will get him. It was interesting that this kid came out and said a specific program could flip him. Not a good thing for KU football fans
Lots of walk on players. I believe the roster at the KU website lists 105 players. My point was that if there are scholarships available, graduate transfers from major programs is a good option since they are immediately eligible and hopefully ready to contribute and lock the scholarship for only one year…better than picking up JuCo players. Others obviously disagree.
@kjayhawks I like Bowen well enough as a position coach, DB’s have been one of the few position groups KU regularly sends to the NFL so Bowen is doing something right as far as player development goes.
I think he’s a horrible play caller who absolutely failed to hide the weakness of the secondary this year and instead exposed them even worse.
This was a year the defense needed to the aggressiveness up to 11 to create as much pressure as possible to force quick throws so hide the inexperience of the secondary. Instead, Bowen called a lot of 3 and 4 man rushes that routinely failed to get pressure on the QB and forced the secondary to cover for extended time which ended up with a lot of big pass plays surrendered.
