lol - I'm sure KU wishes they'd just paid him at this point but are in too deep.  Now he's going to completely embarrass everyone at KU while also getting paid.

KU football, athletics really, can't be embarrassed.

Appreciating the fact that Jeff Long and KU continue to double and triple down on stupid relative to David Beatty

Good lawd, Jeff Long is a clown

They have to at this point.  If you are Beaty, you don't settle for a penny less of the buyout and fees.  I mean, if he can prove Long called up Texas and cost him a job.... :eek:

Oh yeah, the whole bill, plus the bills.

Embarrassing KU while getting paid is practically a requirement for KU football coaches lately.

also, in my mind,  this is going to highlight a significant issue as it relates to Dearmon

he obviosuly was coaching players before he transitioned out of his "analyst" role

i refuse to believe that even KU would promote a former NAIA head coach from analyst to OC without seeing him coach kids in their program

Also, not specific to this thread but: it helps P5 revenue to not have to buy crap games with crap schools. We should start on this ASAP with P5 schools.

KU at the bottom of the power 5 list for attendance over the last 5 years, which isn't surprising.  On that list, KU was behind the following programs:

Colorado State, Air Force, Fresno State, Temple, Army, Navy, South Florida, San Diego State, Colorado State, ECU

It's not that surprising. Put those teams on a schedule, and KU is likely to go 0-10 against them pretty much every year over the past decade.

I suspect the RONA may push the multi-decades in waiting Memorial Stadium reno.

I don't see any reason for them to wait longer. They've pretty much seen what we are doing and have done. Now they can dress us up in a clown suit and tea bag us to death.

Jeff Long is putting a clown suit on himself fighting David Beatty over $3 million dollars, so . . .

Agreed.  They have had over 10 years to closely watch KSU put up fresh, new, expensive, world class facilities. I would assume the plans to clown us in the one up game are ready to roll.

At first I took this as an exaggeration, but then I thought back on things. It really has been over a decade since they announced they were going to be working on that stadium and the only thing they've been able to do is remove the track.

What happens in 3 or 4 years when Miles leaves without getting them to a bowl game and they still haven't touched that stadium?

Dax shared stuff they were planning back in the day. I delivered the news to the phog that 2017, at the earliest, is when they might start their renovations. I got laughed out of the thread. I was wildly off.

Yup, and now the new AD Long has ditched any previous plans and is getting something bigger and better together. BLUE STADE RISING.

I'm sorry, but I found this part of the article particularly amusing.

Safeguarding athletes and coaches also has been a priority, Long said, with apparel sponsor Adidas providing about 2,000 masks to KU.

Though I'm happy to see Adidas once again working to protect KU's interests.
