Keep in mind, he has to recruit to Kansas, typically very difficult. He needs to keep Pooka.
I’m going to give it the old “wait and see”.
I read the $60,000 was paid directly to a strength and conditioning coach by a Maryland booster who wanted his money back (Maryland issue!). Thus no $$$ through the guardian’s account and the NCAA will have to be satisfied Somehow. The $2,500 is relatively minor in my mind, much like some prior small $$ payments at KU.
It will take a while to sort this mess out.
Moving to international ball (a suggestion made by other posters) didn’t work out for Preston. I’m not aware of any high school player that navigated those waters very successfully…
@jayballer73 - I suspect Long wants to keep this close to the vest, avoiding (or maybe encouraging?) speculation. He’s a pro and is having a good time. Personally, it’s better than total silence. Over on The Phog , there’s 150+ pages in a single topic on a new football coach. The vast majority of it came in about 5 hours yesterday. It’s hilarious and every poster was having a great time. One guy (appparently illegally) went onto airport grounds to take pictures of people emerging from the aircraft. (I don’t doubt alcohol was involved! 🙄). I’m going to roll with it and enjoy the ride. We’ll know soon enough!
Fires aren’t that close to LA stadium, as fires are NW of LA proper. Smoke has mainly been blown toward the ocean. About 40% contained. I suspect it will be mostly contained by game time. The issue could be wind direction, pushing the smoke toward the field.
Stadium will be full, if the word can get out.
Great game pending!
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
