    Since 2005, Kansas has started 10, 9, 9, 12, 11, 10, 7, 9, 5, 4, 4, 6 and 5 Whites athletes. In 2018 they look to start 5 once again.

    Can't really find much positive about this team. Since they dipped to single digit white athletes in 2011 they have a total 12 wins in 7 seasons. Joe Dineen is a great linebacker who should be a mid-round pick but we all know how the NFL prefers their LBs not know how to tackle.


    Players to look out for are WR Ryan Schadler, WR Zach Nachbar, WR Tyler Patrick

    Regardless of their pro-caste “darkening”, They’ll remain bottom feeders on the gridiron.

    3-33 record over the last three seasons. But I guess feeding off the black scraps that the bigger teams pass over is a good recruiting strategy?

    It’s no surprise Kansas State have well and truely taken over as the dominant team in that state.

    Thanks Leofan.

    For the life of me a I have never been able to figure out Kansas. How many blacks live in Kansas?

    Apart from Dineen they do have some white WRs who should see the field but the question is how much?

    It is the same old follow the yellow brick road to caste land. For every Alabama there are countless crap caste laden teams. They think the more blacks you can cram into a roster the better. Kansas is poster child for that.

    Kansas has a pretty low black population percentage and the high school teams that win all of the championships every year are almost completely white. They ignore the in-state talent unless the melanin content is high. And they wonder why they suck EVERY year. Mark Mangino started recruiting the in-state talent, even had a white starting RB, Jake Sharp, a few years back. Teams were good, won the Orange Bowl. After he left, it's been all downhill.

    Where Does KU Football Go From Here...

    Interesting read with some similarities to the CSU situation and article. "...disorganization on defense...".

    There was disorganization on defense. Too often, KU’s defensive linemen were standing as the ball was snapped while trying to quickly process the play-call from the sideline, leaving them little chance of getting the leverage needed to outmuscle the person in front of them.

    The CSU article as well mentioned the ability of their defense to mentally process the plays in time to react, which leads the following question. Does it matter if a player with "upside" is 1/10 or 2/10 or even 3/10 of a second faster than one without "upside" if it takes him even one second longer than a player without "upside" to be able to diagnose a play and react to it?

    Kansas is in disarray. Not sure where they go from here.

    Well, they have a proven template in how Mangino ran the team very successfully, but the AD wants "a great recruiter" and "someone that can develop young men on and off the field", code phrases for "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result" (insanity).

    Seems that way. Bringing in 24 JUCOs past 2 seasons is a result of piss poor recruiting. KU's current Athletic Director was behind the Bielema hiring when he was at Arkansas.

    Nothing wrong with JUCOs. Sometimes the only way that white players can showcase their talents is by going the community college route. Unfortunately for Kansas, the only players recruited from the JUCO programs are the enhanced-melanin type. So their problem with "recruiting" has nothing to do with actual talent evaluation and everything to do with the caste system.

    Kansas same O same O. My shopworn tale from the 1980s about how they recruited a wonderblack from my area seems to have been written in stone in Lawrence, I turn the channel so quickly when I see them playing there are pixels left standing in the air.

    At least Frost up the road a bit has gotten some of the world's greatest athletes to take their "talents" down the road which is a win by subtraction (till the media informs the NCAA of this infraction)
