They'd be nuts if true.
If he leaves every all you can eat restaurant owner in Kansas will dance with joy.
Sounds like Kansas will be open too
Interesting news here: http://www2.kusports.com/news/2009/nov/17/ku-ad-perkins-meets-football-players-over-concerns/
apparently the ad really wants edsall from connecticut.
that would be a good hire for most people, imo. the guy built the thing from nothing. and made them competitive. played their way into a BCS conference in a decade (even though it's the Big East)
I doubt Edsall leaves UConn. And I doubt Mangino leaves KU unless its on his own terms.
Maybe Mangino knows how ugly it is going to be when Reesing leaves. There is a fair chance that they suck something fierce next year. They will loose all of their skill this year.
Yeah, but normal restaurants will go out of business. :sad1:
Why? Isn't KU doing the best it has ever done the past few years? until 2002 this team was a doormat. Mangino has turned KU around. I guess they are willing to roll the dice and see if a new coach can take them to the next level. If the new coach can't win with below average players then they will dropback to a doormat. Mangino does a great job winning with the talent he has.
All it says is that it was a personel matter....
rumor on collegefootballeating.com is that he ate one of his players and they can't find him.
They're worried about his health. It's a bad deal. Really bad, from what I'm told.
I was just about to post a ROFL smiley on the pic above, but if this is truly the case, I hope the big guy pulls through.
After everything he's done for them, it'd be a shame for it to end due to health concerns.:huh:
That pic is too thin for Mangino.
Who's the stoolie?
I heard this last year. I do think there are legit health concerns that would be part of the decision making process. MM has done a whale of a job there, pun intended, and cutting him loose would be a mistake IMO, if it only involved W/L's.
I can't see Edsall leaving UConn for KU. Even though they have had success with MM, it is still a BB school. Any coach coming in there would have to see it as a step up from where they are, and Edsall would be foolish IMO to look at KU that way.
I still don't know why when they extended MM's contract they didn't require daily sessions with a personal trainer or something. All it would have taken was a GA tying MM to a treadmill and turning it on...
Isn't UConn a bb school too? I agree with you that its not a step up though.
Good point. My guess Edsall will wait for a better opening than KU. Uconn is a pretty respectable gig right now, and has about as much chance of a BCS bowl as the Jayfrauds...
I'd say his chances are better in the Big East than at KU in the Big XII.
Or on a gurney. If I were a KU fan, I'd be a little worried he might have a heart-attack walking from the locker room to the sideline. They need to get him one of those Hoverround scooters.
He'd squash a hoverround, I'd go with medium duty farm tractor....
Saw on a different forum that he assaulted cornberback Chris Harris on the plane on the way to the Colorado game. They also say he is gone for certain after the season.
On the internet, it must be true.
Turn this around the other way, there was a rumor earlier this year that something was up. But the speculation then revolved around Manginos health. Perhaps the meeting is to announce that Mangino will step down at the end of the season for health reasons.
Its odd to me that your AD would let the players dictate to the school what would happen. Supposedly we ended up with Rick Neuheisel instead of Bob Simmons/Eliot Uzelek because some kids threatened to transfer. Imagine if Marcus Houston had his way and had Bienemy removed. Its a bad precedent.
I don't like it because now there is another AD out there shopping for coaches along with Mike Bohn.
its harris's fault he shouldnt have taken mangino's twinkie
Something is weird in Lawrence. Earlier in the year the had the fight with the basketball team.
Good: KU will suck even more next year
Bad: More competition for head coaches.
If Mangino is indeed on his way out, it better be for a really good reason. He is a very good football coach who has brought KU the best success they have had in a very long time. Puzzling.
If he did really smack a player, he's gone. If that can do in Woody Hayes, then it can do in Mark Mangino. Mangino is no Hayes...he's sort of like three Woody Hayes fused together in one gelatinous mass....
KU has a plane that Mangino can fly on?? What is it, a military transport???? :huh:
