Making the case for Indiana, Kansas, and Vanderbilt for Romeo Langford.
An AAU coach with Kansas ties has pled guilty in the FBI case. Thomas Gassnola was involved in payments schemes related to the recruitment of Billy Preston and Silvio de Sousa, without the knowledge of the University.
A review of the Kansas Athletics budget found that KU was $19 million in the red last year. But don’t worry you guys, Zenger is confident “in the health of the athletic program and proud of how the department’s finances are managed.” BTW, from what I can tell, that’s day-to-day expenses, not including any construction costs.
The men’s basketball program currently floats the athletics department, allowing for hope for increased revenues in the future due to paltry football ticket sales (in other words, if they ever get the football turned around, they’ll make more money).
A scrimmage free spring was a different experience for the KU football seniors this year.
Read into it what you will, but Peyton Bender took the first snaps during the practice, Carter Stanley went second, and Miles Kendrick was third.
Chris Harris was in attendance on Saturday, and gave some pointers to KU’s highest rated recruit, Corione Harris. Harris said afterwards that KU fans should continue to be patient with David Beaty, and that, “It’s going to take some time.”
Memba when David Beaty said it was time to see dividends, and that dividends are reflected in wins? Yeah, me too. So does Matt Galloway, who reports that the buzz from last year has subsided, and the Jayhawks are embracing the low profile.
Is the fact that KU returns most of its production from last year a good thing or a bad thing?
Daniel Wise is no doubt happy for his teammate, Dorance Armstrong, but says he elected to return to KU because he wants to end his college career “with a little bit more of a boom.”
Dorance Armstrong was the only Jayhawk taken in the NFL Draft this weekend, but Ben Johnson signed a free agent deal with the LA Chargers.
KU as a whole seems to be struggling this spring, with KU baseball, softball, and women’s golf all languishing at the bottom of the Big 12.
