@Woodrow Evaluating talent isn’t the biggest issue. KU’s talent isn’t 20-30 points inferior to the rest of the B12.
Beaty’s issue is his indecisiveness. He cannot stick with a decision. 3 OC’s in 4 years but even the coordinators have changed positions this offseason, 4 offensive systems in 4 years, most of the position coaches change roles every offseason. There’s no consistency in the program. Players are hearing a different voice each offseason telling them how to do something. That doesn’t build consistency. That type of turnover and shuffling on his staff has done nothing to help these players develop. I think Clint Bowen is the only coach that’s still in the same job he was in when Beaty was hired, but even his position responsibilities have changed so even that claim is only half true.
As much as I want Beaty to prove everyone wrong this year, there’s a reason why apathy has set in and it’s because Beaty has done nothing to generate any kind of excitement around this program because he can’t stick with a decision. He has built the foundation of Kansas football on sand and that’s why there’s little stability within the program now.
