    Not sure but it needs to be someone like Mark Mangino. An offensive mind that can bring skill players and put points on the board. Defense is secondary at a school like because you're not going to get elite talent at every position.

    Maybe Sterlin Gilbert or Kendal Briles

    *sigh*

    Firing coaches/wanting to fire coaches after 22 games is illogical and ignorant.

    At some point in the near future, Kendal Briles is going to be a HC somewhere.

    I've wondered how long he has to lay low before he gets a chance. Louie CK only had to disappear for a couple of months. Brian Williams (NBC to MSNBC) a couple of years. Art Briles forever. That last name carries so much negativity, I wonder if he will ever get a chance. But if he does - it will have to be at a school like KU - they aren't going to get a top name, or even a top coordinator. It would be interesting to see what he could do. He's a recruiting machine, loves the gray area, and his offenses are the most entertaining in the country. A starving school eventually will take a chance.

    If GA Tech gets rid of Paul Johnson I would go all in on him. I would also take a look a Jeff Monken. As a Longhorn I would hate to see that flexbone once a year because of their cut block schemes. But if I was lacking talent some kind of ball control option offense would be your best bet to win games.

    I agree. Both are very good football coaches. Their offenses are not easy to prepare for.

    That might work. Maybe they can be the new Nebraska.

    If you're going that route I'd go after Frank Solich at Ohio though.

    The Osbourne Nebraska offense is run out of the I with lots of iso and power plays. Paul Johnson's flexbone is based off the wishbone and relies on lighter quicker more athletic lineman that can get to the second level and block linebackers. Its easier to get the smaller quicker lineman that the flexbone requires.

    I know the difference. My point was the power I has worked in the midwest before. Flexbone I can't recall.

    Either way, you still need elite defensive players and I don't think you'll get that at Kansas. You have to be able to put points up in a hurry.

    Would be neat to see. I don't think he'd find much success in the Big XII, but if you're Kansas it is worth a shot.

    Like I said, "gray" area. He also appeared at track meets during quiet time and made the excessive phone calls. This is what we know of.

    Kansas can't recruit the OL to run Osborne's offense. By the time the flexbone was popular the only ones running it at the division 1 level were the service academies. Paul Johnson has made it work at the power 5 level. The trick is you hold onto the ball as long as you can. Look at the Army OU game. OU only ran 40 offensive plays because they only had the ball for 15 minutes. Army ran the ball 78 times. Kansas is never going to be able to recruit enough talent on D so might as well go all in ball control.

    Apparently KU has spoken to Les Miles about the position.

    I'd love to see Les Miles take the KU job.
