Guess I need a new thread title for CU.
Spunking for Monken has a feel to it.
Coaches have been trying to figure that since the game was created.
But a pro set is the furthest thing from such. If you aren’t going to run a traditional Big XII spread, the triple option makes way more sense.
I don't care what he runs. He's better than almost any coach that Kansas could have gotten. It's KANSAS. Think Vandy. Miles would be a good hire for Vandy. Kansas is worse than Vandy.
And there it is, KU is now the football school in the state of Kansas again. Congrats Jayhawks.
Triple-option at Kansas would be great. That saying, if liking Lesticles is wrong I don’t want to be right.
I don't think any available coach has accomplished more than him. I also think hiring a 65 year old with nothing left to accomplish is an awful decision.
He was 16-16 in-conference at Oklahoma State before taking over for Saban at LSU. That was 14 years ago and he still had a lot left to prove then.
Going from recruiting at LSU, where the school recruits itself and the state has a ton of talent, to Kansas is a massive difference.
Anyone who gets hired is likely to fail, but if I were a Kansas fan I would want someone who cares deeply about righting-the-ship and I don't think they could've hired someone who cares... Les?
Lot of Lovie PTSD in this post.
I formed this opinion well before we hired ourselves an old guy who is out-of-touch, ok.
I think I heard that Miles said he would run a spread if he got back into coaching. Will be interesting to see if he does or not.
Lincoln Riley’s brother is already at Kansas, just sayin
And it's his last coaching stop. They're gonna have stability.
Stability at shitty football schools is next to impossible.
He’s got about as much as you possibly could considering him and Jeff Long go way back, and Long has proven he doesn’t like to fire coaches(did all he could to not fire Petrino, and some say his reluctance to fire Bielema was the last straw)
always amazed people forgot how next-level shitty South Carolina and Duke were before good hires. this is a good hire and there's no realistic ceiling to KU football, there's zero reason he can't make them a decent program.
I'm talking about keeping continuity within the coaching staff and preventing roster attrition.
South Carolina and Duke have natural recruiting grounds to pull from
Kansas isn’t exactly in a good spot, nor do they have much of a pipeline into a hotbed like Nebraska used to into Texas. There’s absolutely zero built in advantages
You obviously don’t know about Tony Hull and New Orleans ;)
How many would coach in Lawrence?
this gonna be a great chicken-or-egg case study
Les Miles is best we could get even with overpaying. Who his OC is and is he ready to take on a massive rebuild are the million dollar questions.
If he is in lazy fuck Charlie Weis mode or hires a goober for OC we are still proper fucked.
Glad Les miles is coaching again. Gonna be interesting at Kansas at least
Rumors our AD Long was talking to Judd Fisch & Graham Harrell for OC, but both seem like shoot the moon candidates imo. Fisch was wanting the HC job iirc.
The #Kansas Jayhawks are a better football school than the #South Carolina Gamecocks could ever be.
They've won conference championships. Theres even 3 Orange bowl appearances in their history with one win. The #South Carolina Gamecocks should be ashamed and afraid of the annual curb stomping Clemson is gonna give them in one week.
Long was toying with the idea of Miles during the end of his tenure at Arkansas. Not surprised to see this hire at all.
Excited to hear him say Pooka over and over
Where the Santa Claus shit is that emoji of the KU fan with the mascot head?
pez and i have to do everything here smdh
Les Miles left Oklahoma State with starting RB who maybe ran a 5.0 40. I'm not joking.
He will find similar success at KU.
I’m glad you wasted the time studying Kansas football history to form an “argument” that only probably won’t sway a single person.
Geography is a huge obstacle to overcome and a lack of a devoted fanbase is a killer. Basketball will always be top dog at KU. You might not even be aware of how helpful it is to be amongst a few in a conference whose fans prefer football success to basketball success
Our offensive line actually got better as the season went on and went from awful to maybe average on good day. We have some good backs in Pooka, Dom Williams & Herbert. If can find a mobile qb with a pulse and OC whose not a fucktard KU could have a mid tier offense which hasnt happened since Todd Reesing.
Big 12 scores fast so your team should get possessions. Conference isn’t known for defense and you’re the only team built to run it 60 times.
Les didn't run the spread at Oklahoma State. Defense is crucial to winning the conference.
Bless you both, Esteemed Users pez and Tobias
And Les needs to wear this on the sidelines
: rockchalkcoronary : is the shortcut fwiw
I’ll gladly take his coaching record he had at OSU
I mean going from shit to mediocre is a huge improvement. KU was twice the program that we were when Les left.
Edit: giant undies left KU better than Less did @ okie lite
Ehhhhh I don’t know about all that.
seems like some first class revisionist history right here
I would hate to see Kansas football lose all the progress it has made elevating itself above Rutgers but below Nicholls State.
moving from shit to mediocre is hard as fuck. one bad coach sets you back another 4 years or so.
Oklahoma State was 13-20 the three years before Les got there. Les went 28-21 in four years (24-14 his last three years). I don't know everything about the history of Oklahoma State football, but I think it's reasonable to suggest he left that program significantly better than it was when he got that job
Can he do the same at KU in a much different era at age 65? I have no clue.
Don’t forget we’re above TCU too :)
Look up the story of Les leaving OSU.
Its Oklahoma State. There is nothing 1st class about anything Oklahoma.
But hey, let me make a gif of me eating popcorn and brag about working for the athletic dept. That is what we do on here, right?
He took the LSU job at halftime of a bowl game with an NFL QB, WR, and TE.
He took the LSU job at a very convenient time is what I'm implying.
Some shitty team is going to give Chris Creighton a call. The fact that he has gotten Eastern Michigan to bowl eligibility in 2 of the last 3 years is a remarkable coaching job.
So he gets no credit for developing that talent? That doesn't seem like a terrible thing to say about a coach at a program that sucked before he got there.
uhhhh no? what the hell are you talking about
