That's 25% of their commits and 20% of their stars.

Wrong on both numbers.

It seems the phog guys are making an officially licensed t-shirt to commemorate an apparently awesome flight tracker thread.

I mean, we wanted to make a coffee table book out of the cigars thread.
Who the eff is "we"? And besides, the wild ride of conference realignment is slightly bigger than flight tracking your next coach.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

"But which school got the higher grade from ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg may be an eye-opener."

LMAO at anyone shocked that someone thinks that Les Miles is a doofus that jumped at a payday at 65 years old.

That Rittenberg article is shite. I've read like half dozen of these coaching grade articles and any one of them that doesn't ridicule the Hugh Freeze hire should be mocked then dismissed, Rittenberg gave Liberty an A.

How long until Tom "the breaker of coaches" Keegan is calling for poor Les' head on a pike?

I'm betting September 2020.

Seems like a good hire to me.  Their version of Huggins.

That's an awful comparison, read up on Hugh Freeze. I guess it's an A in the sense that he's perfect for Ian McCaw and those hypocrites at liberty.

I think it's an accurate comparison.  Freeze is a good coach just like huggs.  Huggins had the dui.  Freeze had strippergate.  Just because Freeze was doing shady things doesn't mean he can't win football games.  I'm mean if you're Liberty, and you're willing to look like a hypocrite, this is the best hire they could've made.  They were never going to be able to land a coach of Freeze's level without something like this happening.

I honestly don’t know that much about recruiting, but how much can you really attribute to a coach after a few weeks at the school?

Not much unless your a 'seed from Lawrence expecting big things. Yes, there are several that thought Miles would flash a ring and the recruits would come running. But they are still KU, they just don't get that.

He is 65 years old.  Who wants to play for an old balls coach.  He could die on the sideline at any moment or get dementia halfway through the season.

It's hard to hate on their class with just a month on the job and not being able to hire anyone on his stuff, but holy crap that class is an absolutely disaster.

There is seriously only one I would take (the Russell kid.. well ok, probably the massive human being DT too).

They fired the coach early to get a head start.  CK doesn't even know the roster.   A lot of KU fans thought Les would truck us or at least pick up a few decent Louisiana players with his connections.  He couldn't even get the best players in Lawrence.   Maybe he was left a dumpster fire, but the early results have to be concerning.

I don’t think Les is interested in over working himself from what I’ve heard....

Chances Charlie Weiss and Les Miles texted before Les got hired?  I'm guessing pretty high.
