    Re: Five questions with a Kansas blogger

    Nice article. Seems like everyone in Jayhawkland has already given up on this game. Hope coach Rhoads has the boys focused and ready come game time because we can't let this KU team get any early success and build confidence. We need to jump on them right away.

    Good read, looks like they don't know any more about the QB than the rest of us.

    Re: Five questions with a Kansas blogger

    I am becoming less and less worried about Mecham. Initially I was concerned because he is an unknown with great JuCo stats. But given how he was never really even in the equation at QB this year, but there was never even any redshirting talk, and they went wildcat before putting him in, the coaches obviously don't have a lot of faith in his abilities.

    I think unless we give up some big play in the first drive that gives him and KU confidence they will never get off the ground and we have a good chance at a shutout.

    Re: Five questions with a Kansas blogger

    PC: With Lew Perkins on the way out the door as the Athletic Director, is there any news about his replacement? What do you think the first job of the new AD is?


    OK: A lot of rumblings and rumors but nothing of substance. The search committee is tight lipped as ever, but there are definitely names that seem to get floated out there on almost a weekly basis like Dan McCarney and Billy Bob Bojangles. From the sound of it, Kansas has some interest from some fairly solid candidates. The fact that Kansas has gone through the major capital improvements in recent years makes it an attractive post, but obviously the recent struggles in football and the other bad press elsewhere open it up to scrutiny.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I wouldn't consider the fact that the coached decided to go wildcat instead of putting in Mecham as negative agianst him. As a 3rd stringer you probably don't get any reps in practice so you don't have the game plan down. The coaches thought it be easier to move the ball in the wildcat vs. having a QB who doesn't fully understand the offense that they put in for that week. I would expect they will have Mecham at full speed for us.
