Just opened a new training facility. I'd say their turning the corner  :dunno:

http://www.sportspickle.com/2013/08/kansas-jayhawks-unveil-new-4000-football-facility-featuring-two-bowflex-machines

The Kansas Jayhawks today granted media members an all-access look at their new football facility, The Kansas Jayhawks Football Basement and Performance Center, featuring more than $4,000 in exercise equipment and technology.

The Performance Center, housed in a partially-finished basement in an off-campus house rented by the Jayhawks’ strength and conditioning coach, features two used Bowflex machines, various free weights — including several pairs of the same weight — three yoga mats, an exercise band, two exercise balls, a used ShakeWeight and a brand new Ab Blaster. A closet in the basement/Performance Center contains a mini-fridge stocked with Dasani water, as well as a panini maker and a big plastic barrel of hard pretzels. Rolls of paper towels from Costco sit in the corner, allowing players to dry themselves off and wipe down equipment.

“I’m really excited by this facility,” said Kansas head coach Charlie Weis. “We may not have what some of the SEC schools have, or what Oregon has, and football will always come second to basketball here at Kansas, but we can definitely work with this. It’s definitely better than our old workout facility, which was less a facility and more a sheet of paper we handed out to our players with directions on how to do pushups and situps in their dorm rooms.”

The basement is not a finished product, however. A hat will be passed through the crowd during Jayhawks’ home games this season soliciting donations for further upgrades. For example, the basement could use a dehumidifier because the space takes on some water after heavy rains. There is also talk of investing in a TV/DVD player combo device that would play workout DVDs.

“Our defensive coordinator says his nephew has those P90X videos,” said Weis. “It would be great if we could borrow those.”

Weis believes his team has already seen benefits from the new facility.

“They had to move everything in here,” he said. “Carrying those Bowflex machines down the steps was no easy task. I think they got a good workout and bonded as a team.”

Sad we did this.  It should be a tie. Do you agree?

You folks from Tietletown are really the experts on ties.  I'll yield to your authority.

I believe so.  Then again, I also thought you only won 1/2 a title in football.

This is a time when you just lay there and let it happen.  You have no comeback for this.

Let the joke run its course.

A few years back, actually Manginos last year, I went to a KU game with my dad who is a KU alum. They were playing Duke, granted, this would be a grea bball matchup but this was football. On the first series of the game a Duke player ran 60 plus yards well within the ten yard line. They later scored on that drive but KU prevailed...BUT the shining moment of that game was when they trotted out Gale Sayers at halftime to promote their Gridiron Club. Unfortunately, Gale forgot what he was promoting a minute and a half into his speech. Between that and all the KU fans around me saying that Mangino was a yard wide and a bad rep for their school I haad a great time. I did get an awful sunburn that day though.

Do I really have to remind you about all the ties involved with your basketball championship streak?  And you guys still claim a Big 12 North championship even though Missouri farm humped you for three hours.

and KU farm humped KSU for 120 game minutes this year in basketball...your point?
