    That article is a great read (as well as the back-story article this one is following up on).

    It will interesting to see how KU and K-State react, knowing that this practice could soon be against NCAA rules.

    Don't we still have an open scholly? Seems like someone is going to be looking for a last minute home.

    KU?

    I don't think Mangino has ever been an over-signing type. According to Rivals, none of the last four classes were over 25 guys. And he's said that he's only taking about 15-18 for next season because of available scholarships.

    Well I think it was a great strategy when it was within the rules. Why wouldn't you do what Nutt did. Now, obviously he cant, but the strategy was just smart recruiting.

    Kansas has a good JC football conference, which provides an easy opportunity for KU and K-State to sign players that don't have a good chance of qualifying, then place them at the local JC when they don't, and see them on campus in a year or two.

    Obviously, K-State (Snyder) has a more illustrious history of this than KU does.
