ryno you seem to forget, both those coaches wear NC rings from their days as OC & DC for south teams. imho, the best coach in the Big XII this season is Kansas coach Mark Mangino.
I'll agree that Mangino is a great coach, but there's a reason he hasn't been scooped up by another program... you know, that whole "his aorta has a cheeseburger caught in it... wait, scratch that, SEVERAL cheeseburgers" thing. How much longer do you think he's really going to be around AND able to coach? I mean, people can live at his size for unlikely stretches of time, but they're rarely able to do so AND remain in "good enough" health to hold a managerial position at Arby's, let alone run a D-1 college football program.
Aside from that, Kansas is never going to be a recruiting hotbed... while it's true that Lawrence is a little nicer to look at than Lincoln, Lawrence is still only a LITTLE nicer to look at than Lincoln. They can have success in bits and pieces, but I don't think it will ever be consistent, even by CU standards.
I long for the days where NU and CU battled for the top prize. :huh:
What I say today was the result of us recruiting 2s for the last 4 years and the Tigers recruiting 3s and 4s.
If we start recruiting football players and not track athletes we wouldn't be having these conversations.
Track athletes? Where? The Buff's one glaring deficiency is speed, at any position. If we're recruiting track athletes they must be from the special olympics!
Tell that to Cliff Branch.
Exactly what I was thinking. I wish we had some more guys that are on the track team as well.
