KU Football Solution

Lawrence, KS

#1 Oct 23, 2006
Lets be honest, Mark Mangino has had a lot of past success with other teams, and he even helped us get to two bowl games. But some during his years at KU some pretty aweful trends have emerged. The result of these trends is avoidable losses.

So the question then is: What can we do to fix this problem?

One possible answer: As a community, protest to the top dogs to have an open tryout for a position to help the KU coaching staff make less mistakes. Sometimes it seems like us fans have a better idea of how to run offenses in certain situations than do coaches and offensive coordinators. So why not create a quiz that tests knowledge in game situations. This would be similar to what Dick Vermeil did with the Eagles back in the 70's when they had problem and were searching for answers.
Of course it would have to be heavily advertised and supported by the fans, but that would be easy to do if THE FANS were allowed to vote. Then, not only would we see improvements in strategy and fewer errors in decision making during games, the fans would actually be partly responsible for the success because they were the ones that voted for the person that helped. What do you think?

Actually I think something like this would help the team, they were hardly able to squeeze out a win this week against 1-8 colorado. Go chiefs!
