    At this point we are basically a very expensive consulting firm getting all these buyouts.

    I get that it could be his dream job since he is a Kansas native but KU is gonna be a tough job.

    He has made some good moves at UCF and can have success. Leaving UCF and going to a dumpster fire because he is a KU fan would be a Frost level mistake.

    Yea this would put us at like 8 or 9 million in buyouts this year. That’s more than we get from our shitty tv contract.

    Is it a tough job though? There is no expectation for football and you can not possibly fuck up a coaching hire worse then they have the last 15 years. You’ll never have to hire a basketball coach.

    It's because he said they'd play anyone anytime anywhere back when the B1G was refusing to play at all during the pandemic.

    That said, why are they cancelling? Just to avoid the bashing?

    Yep, I get that. It can't be just to avoid the beating, they have played Top 5 schools each year out there, that's why I'm saying it can't be just his call, bad optics though.
    That said, I don't know why else they would be trying to drop a game 6 months ahead of time

    Frost hated scheduling any tough games while he was here. He wants easy wins always it looks like. They need him to qualify for a bowl badly this year. That seat could get really hot.

    And apparently we just got some transfer RB from Northwestern? Had a good freshman year but lost a bunch of carries after that. Weird to grab two transfer RB when that was the one position I liked our depth.

    I like it better the fact we do all of this when you can also watch game tape to see how fast a guy runs in an actual football game with football pads and making football moves. This is all so pointless.

    Im connived the only person who actually uses this info for anything useful is the guy who does Madden ratings

    Damn, feel like I have seen Gowan as high as a 2nd or 3rd.

    Edit: PFF has him as the 9th best CB, 2 spots behind Arob. They have Grant as the 4th ranked S.

    This is more of his grade than a projection. But yeah Gowan has basically played 1 real year of football in the last few so he is going to go very high. He is the poster child for paying players so they don't have to leave early.

    Gowan not playing last season was allegedly because of his daughter and that he supposedly got some of his family members sick while he was playing. Whether he's being honest or has cooked up the story to sound better in interviews, I don't know.

    Either way, he's the biggest wild card here. He has the tools of a good CB and could be a mid round guy or just not even drafted because of how risky a pick it is. If I were an NFL team, I would definitely go with someone like him in the 5-7th round. It's rare you find guys worth a crap that late anyway, so why not take a flier on someone.

    Marlon really screwed himself with his Pro Day performance. He was slow, not that explosive, and not very impressive.
