    Gill out at KU?

    Anyone hearing this? Hopefully Gill can give his bosses enough hope to keep him on the hot seat for an extended period of time? Go KU.

    Yet another reason why JP should never listen to the vocal yet moronic contingent of Cyclone Nation - there was an extreme push to have him hired here at ISU, and a lot of them were outright ****** when we went with Rhoads instead.

    Nothing being said on Phog.net right now. I mean, other than all the posts calling for him to be fired....just nothing about him actually being fired, not even rumors at this point.

    I think its a given that he'll get canned, they're just seeing how long the AD will wait to turn out the lights.

    I wanted Gill when the Cheez became un entrenched - I was wrong and I not afraid to admit that. Doesn't make me moronic

    And another top recommendation for the ISU job on cyclonefanatic was Mike Stoops.

    I'm not sure I really wanted him to be our coach, but I was a bit put off when he came out and said that he didn't want to even interview with us. Then I was REALLY put off when he interviewed and took the KU job only a year later.

    At $2MM per year, can KU afford to get rid of Gill?

    Re: Gill out at KU?

    I remember praying ISU didn't hire Gill. He had one fluke year where Buffalo wasn't even that good. They had a hail mary pass to win a game. If that pass falls incomplete, they finish 5-7 or 6-6 and don't go to a bowl. He had proven nothing. The next year Buffalo sucks again and Kansas saves Gill from his eventual firing in 5 years from Buffalo. It was a bad hire from the start. Thank God Jamie hired Rhoads.

    Kansas City radio says there would be a few boosters that would come up with the money to get rid of Gill. These boosters supposedly have already let it be known.

    I was in the exact same boat. So glad JP makes the calls and not me.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Does Gill keep his job when he beats Mizzou tomorrow? (Hey, a guy can wish, right?)

    Re: Gill out at KU?

    I remember not being very high on Turner Gill but I was not against it either. The name I remembered being thrown around some was Pat Hill at Fresno State. He was the guy I wanted at the time but I wouldn't have been disappointed if we got Gill at the time. Obviously it is a blessing that we didn't and JP ended up making the perfect hire.
