    Samson Faifili

    Weird. This guy was scheduled to visit us for WVU, apparently visited KU and watched us dismantle them--and committed to the Jayhawks. Bizarre.

    Cpr said last week that he wanted to finish out the class with help at LB, DT, OT and WR. I was assuming this was one of the guys he was hoping for.

    I am kinda surprised he signed with KU after that debacle as well. Playing time had to be what did it.

    He likes how KU doesn't force their LBs to defend the pass...or the run.

    Just goes to show you that it's nearly impossible to predict what a kid will do and what he's looking for?

    Why anyone would rather play for Charlie Weis over Paul Rhoads is beyond me.

    Hey, any time you have a chance to commit to a 1-10 team with a bunch of open scholarships before visiting much more successful teams, you have to do it.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Obviously you have never been recruited by "The" Jeff Blasko


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: Samson Faifili

    He must have wanted to play next to Schyler Miles--another former CPR recruit.

    Perhaps Beshears could have told them what is going to happen?

    Re: Samson Faifili

    He must have been impressed with all the Kansas fans that were dressed like empty seats on Saturday night.

    Maybe he is they guy that I saw at the Outhouse in Lawrence after the game ... I could see how those ladies could make him want to go there.

    I was just thinking about Beshears. He could have been a part of A LOT more wins, and much more excitement up in Ames. I can't totally blame the kid though, since he signed on to play for Chizik and not Rhoads.

    But anyways, I hope he enjoyed being on the bad side of a game with the Cyclones for the 3rd straight year.

    Samson Faifili obviously should just drop the forth and fifth letters and final letter of his last name if these are the kinds of decisions he's going to make.
