    The statement of KU's season, after the collecting a grand total of 21 yards offense yesterday against TCU, and spent a large portion of the game with negative yardage.

    It feels good to not be a bottom-feeder, guys.

    It is funny how so many people were convinced that Kansas was on the right track at the beginning of the year. We need Kansas to suck.

    But a person has to feel a tiny bit sorry for those guys. We've sucked the majority of our history, but never like that.

    Probably thinking how he screwed up leaving TCU to become the sole offensive coordinator at Kansas.

    We've seen some bad teams at KU and some of our own but they seem like late 80's/early 90's ISU/KState bad right now. They have some talent coming but this is still a 5-6 year rebuild at best. I'd guess none of the current staff will be around to see it through.

    Two words...rolling clock. DM is a broken man. KU is a broken program.

    He willingly left TCU to go there. Don't feel sorry for someone making stupid decisions. Without looking, I bet he gets paid more than Tom Manning.

    Beatty is just grasping at straws at this point. This will obviously be his last year.

    I thought he was a pretty good OC back when he was with TCU. His offense racked up 82 points on Tech before. They (2014 TCU) averaged 30 points per game.

    Poor Doug. He can have a head start on job search. Ultimately KU's coaching staff will be cleaned out end of the season anyways.

    Is Kansas football even profitable at this point? If I’m the AD, I’d seriously consider dropping the sport. It can’t be generating enough revenue to cover its costs. I suppose maybe the Big12 tv dollars are the incentive to put a team on the field?

    Reminds me of the Jim Criner/Chuck Banker/Jim Walden years. Those were dark days in Ames, believe me.

    Big 12 bylaws require an FBS football program and basketball program for men. So no out there.

    Any time I feel the least bit sorry for them I remember Kansas basketball and than I'm good to go with them losing and losing and losing and losing. I only wish their football program was a black hole that would consume basketball to. Than grow large enough to suck in the Surly State Wildcats also.

    Someone has to be the conference doormat. I'd prefer it be Baylor forever but as long as it isn't ISU I'm good.
