Meacham Out

  • @nwhawkfan busy day!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 I’m juggling a few balls tonight…as they say on the infomercials, “But wait…there’s more!” KU-Texas volleyball just started on Fox Sports regional.

    But I digress…now Beaty can take all the blame for the offense from here on out.

  • LOL

  • @nwhawkfan and KU wins the first set! Just want to add, against the 4th ranked team! The team has had some unfortunate luck this year.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Make that two sets to none! Close call, though.

  • Did you see Agbaji’s sister, for Texas?

  • @nwhawkfan they about gave that hard-earned game to them.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Didn’t notice…I’m just happy to have a winning KU team to watch in October for a change.

  • These announcers are so pro Texas it’s sad.

  • Texas may break a record for service errors lol

  • Didn’t KU score 21 points in Morgantown? Isn’t that a good thing? Confused.

  • @approxinfinity Normally. yes. But in a conference that puts up video-game numbers on offense, 21 isn’t going to cut it most days.

  • Pretty big colapse in the 3rd. I believe last year we got up 2 to zip and blew it.

  • KU WINS !!!

  • Wow, fun times, way to hang in there!

  • And UT’s 24-game conference winning streak is toast! (Burnt orange toast, that is…)

  • Rock chalk baby! That lady announcer talking trashing all match long can GTFO 3-1 ain’t no fluke, one bad stretch in the 3rd set and early in the 4th otherwise KU dominated them. Huge win for our resume for the tournament, long ways to go in the B12 tho.

  • At least that ought to get the Hawks back into the national rankings.

  • @nwhawkfan 8 straight wins and back to back over ranked teams. A win Saturday they may jump into the top 20.

  • So with Beaty coaching QBs Stanley will never see the field again and bubble screens will be run 85% of time lol.

    Have you not been following soccer? They are having an outstanding season too!

  • @Gorilla72 Guess I haven’t. Good to hear though. It’s just nice to have KU competitive in something other than men’s hoops. Hopefully the new AD can start working on that.

  • @Gorilla72 I do, got to see them play ou. They are fun to watch too. I watched them on espn+, I think.

  • I hope Beaty gets Goose Egged on Saturday.

  • Listening to the radio this morning and I guess 3-4 offensive players have “liked” the tweet of Meachum being fired.

  • Beaty didn’t help himself by not identifying his best QB (and starting his worst option) for the first several weeks of the season. That may have cost him his job already. He may have blown a 4-0 start by going with the wrong QB. That’s not playcalling. That’s decision making.

  • @Woodrow interesting. Good Intel.

  • This is the beginning of the end for Beaty.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10

    The writing is on the wall…it has been there for while. just a matter of time now.

  • Here is my opinion on that. Keep in mind though that I am way behind the curve with football. I dont know the sport. But, what this looks like to me is that Beaty is getting scared and desperate. Beaty knows the hammer is swinging down on his time in Lawrence. He is trying to resist being ousted by cleaning house below him. He doesn’t want to take any part in any of the blame for the continued downward spiral of KU football. Its embarrassing right now. KU is so bad! There aren’t 2 teams worse than KU right now in all of div 1. Beaty has to go and AD Long has to fire him right now. Hell, he shoulda done it after game 1.

  • Am I correct in understanding that KU will not lose today? Now, you see, these are the days when people should go to the stadium, tailgate, and party like lunatics when KU doesn’t lose!

    I bet the attendance would give a gameday a run for its money!

  • @mayjay this is where KU football is. I was relieved this morning knowing I didn’t have to watch them play, or heaven forbid contemplate going to a home game.

    It also makes me sad because nothing beats a fall Saturday watching your team…

  • @Lulufulu There’s a lot more than two teams worse than KU right now. KU is still a bad team, but nowhere near last season bad. This team won a road game and beat a P5 team out of conference this year. The defense led the nation in turnovers forced going into this weekend. They’ve also been a lot more competitive so far in B12 play than people anticipated.

    To say this is one of the 2 worst teams in D1 is a joke because this KU team has beaten 2 FBS teams so clearly there’s at least 2 teams worse than KU.

    And no, Beaty should not have been fired after game 1 because it wouldn’t have accomplished anything significant. They weren’t bringing in a new head coach until after the season, it wasn’t going to change any recruits minds, it wasn’t going to change Beaty’s buyout amount. Jeff Long is putting together his plan and isn’t going to make a move just to make a move. Beaty will gone after the Texas game, a new head coach will be named within a couple of weeks before that and the staff will likely be finalized in early January while trying to cobble together a recruiting class for this year.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 You are absolutely way more educated on KU football than me. Thanks for your input, that actually makes a lot of sense. Still think Beaty is being a dick and resisting the inevitable though.

  • KSU is now hammering Ok State making that loss look inexcusable at this point. That was probably a must win for KSU to make a bowl.

  • @kjayhawks I don’t see KSU getting to a bowl game this year. They’re not winning in Norman, and they can’t score enough to hang with Tech. That means they have to beat TCU and ISU on the road along with KU. KU might end up being their only other win this year and I wouldn’t even guarantee that this year if they turn the ball over against us because that’s a team that’s struggling more than KU to score points.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 they already have several wins and beat OSU before you posted. But I do agree that it will be an up hill battle for them. Just saying a loss today would put their chance from slim to virtually none.

  • @kjayhawks Today put them at 3-4. They’ll have to beat TCU, KU, and ISU to get to a bowl game. The TCU and ISU games are both on the road so that makes it pretty challenging for them to get there.

    I don’t see them getting the 3 more wins they still need to get to bowl eligibility because their offense is statistically worse than KU’s this year.

  • ISU taking it to WVU right now.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 Yes, I agreed with that lol

  • alt text

  • It really hasn’t even been that close of a game. WVU blocked a FG for a TD in the first half. Clones defense has dominated.

    I knew WVU was really suspect after KU played them lol.

    Also ISU is actually really good. Just happened to lose to a couple really damn good teams by 10 and a tough close game to TCU.

  • Big 12 is not making the playoffs this year.

  • We knew that when OU lost. UGA getting pounded today is interesting for the playoff.

  • If Texas won out they would be in it. Going to be ranked 5 or 6 in the next poll.

  • If OU won out and beat a top 5 team in Texas in the Big 12 championship they’d still be in the mix.

    Bama and Clemson are pretty much in barring a huge upset.

  • Big shake up this week in CFB, I wouldn’t bet on a B12 team making it but if OU or Texas win out they should at least be in the conversation. Hopefully 2 SEC teams don’t get in this year, which I think is likely at this point because every SEC but Alabama already has 1 loss to date. Notre Dame will get in if they go unbeaten, I don’t believe they have a good enough schedule to get in with a loss. I actually think there is a chance the B10 loses out once again on CFB, all of the West teams are out and only OSU and Michigan have a chance. They meet in the last game of the regular season, at point with OSU’s big wins being Penn State and TCU who now look mediocre, they can’t cant afford a loss if they want to get in IMO. I’d say Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson looking at schedules are the best bet to be in at this point. The fourth team could be anyone’s guess at this point, if OSU loses to Michigan or in the B10 title game I don’t think their conference is strong enough to warrant them getting in and that I think opens the door for a 1 loss B12 or SEC team. Obviously if OSU wins out they’ll be in. I just ain’t sold on them to this point.

  • @Woodrow Texas would still need help even if they won out which I don’t see happening. They’ll still need Geogia, Florida, LSU, and Michigan to drop a second game. If any of those teams finish with 1 loss (meaning they win out), they’d all be ahead of Texas in final rankings. Texas also needs UCF to lose, they need Colorado to lose, they would need Ohio St. to lose, and they need Notre Dame to lose, probably twice depending on who the loss is to.

    Texas still has a lot of work to do because there’s other teams behind them with much harder schedules left that can jump them (or end up undefeated like NC State). I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Texas only moves up to 7 and both Michigan and LSU jump them this week.

  • @kjayhawks If LSU wins the SEC and Bama finishes with 1 loss, they’ll both be in the playoff. Same deal if a 1 loss SEC East representative beats an undefeated Bama in the SEC title game. Alabama has to lose twice unless Clemson, Ohio St., and Notre Dame all won out which would put a 1 loss SEC champ in with 3 undefeateds.
