    Good bye Greg Bell

    Hopefully his descent serves as a cautionary tale for other players.

    Tony Tuioti Hired as New DL Coach

    Even with the change in cost-of-living ya it is surprising he we got him for less than 400K. Nice to get a guy experienced in the 3-4, Wilcox is a great coach to have learned under. Should be a great recruiting asset. Now we just need a guy with big Texas ties.

    Worst CFB Hires of the Past Decade

    IMO this list does too much Monday morning quarterbacking. There is a difference between a hire turning-out bad and looking bad from the start. Riley was a WTF hire right out of the gate. Bo was nothing special but if you can a 9-3 coach you better be bringing-in a winner. Riley was respected in coaching circles but he was still an old .500 guy that was on the downward slide at Oregon State.
  4. Is there a P5 school with lower academic standards than KSU?

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    A little Riley S&C tidbit that came out over on RSS last week. During the 2017 season they didn't have the guys lifting PERIOD. If the players wanted to lift they had to use the rec-center or some other gym. Speaks to massive project Duval was left with, not surprising a couple guys got rhabdo doing workouts that had already been watered-down and we still had issues against stronger fronts. On the positive side this means all the more gains potential we have with Duval being able to hit the ground running this winter.

    Katerian Legrone's potential at WR

    He was working with the TE's during the season, which I think is good. That is where he is headed size-wise anyway, better for him to learn his future position than get some token reps in at wr. Plus in this scheme TE's do split-out and play somewhat of a hybrid role in the first place.

    Dedrick Mills - LOI Signed

    Granted Washington is pretty talented but he was in front of Mazour despite coming-in right at the start of camp way underweight. Mills is a quality rb in his own right that should be more physically ready, and having gotten into GT should be bright enough to pick things up. Think he gets considerable reps right out of the gate and Mazour tries to hold on to the the #3 spot against the frosh and Bradley. Though it wouldn't surprise me if Bradley leaves for a better situation.
  9. Robinson's length is better served at DE. If we are going to move anyone to NT it should be Piper, he's shorter and thicker, supposedly already up to 290. Personally, I'd say keep Robinson at DE, bring-in MPM for NT, and move Piper to OG.

    S Noa Pola-Gates [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    The rumor-mill had it right. Thought it was funny that Callahan was cryptic when asked about it and would just say he was as committed as ever to his prediction of NPG being N.

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    Last winter Duval had to ease-back again after already easing-back going into things. Speaks to the deficit we were working from, gains were still made but those just got us from crappy to not-crappy. This winter we should hit the ground running and elevate ourselves from meh to good in terms of S&C. In 2020 we should be optimized, as-good or better-than anyone we face. Ellis was a huge addition. Nutrition is very important, and he's an S&C expert with a great eye for a player's size potential.

    DE Ty Robinson [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    He does have a Nebraska offer. Don't know much more about him than that. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2020/jason-harris-181464

    JUCO DT Tony Fair [UAB Commit]

    Ya, probably a lot of schools he still wouldn't qualify for. Plus there is gym video of him on youtube. Dude looks like a major project in terms of S&C, that's not good for a JUCO transfer.

    OLB Dylan Jordan [TCU - Signed LOI]

    Over on rivals they wouldn't air the dirty laundry but it must be something significant if KSU and KU are backing-off. It's not like they can afford to be very picky.

    OT Bryce Benhart [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    Says something that he can hang with tip-top guys even though he's having to compete at a light weight due to wrestling.
