    This is something that Beaty and the Terps have in common

    I wouldn't touch Durkin or the strength coach, but Matt Canada can coach. Why LSU fired him, I'll never know but he was a coup for Maryland. I've heard worse ideas than giving him his first shot as a HC. He may be a Big 10 lifer though.

    The service academy guys tend to be quite smart - even if they are undersized and somewhat athletically limited. Our guys are small, not athletically very gifted (with a few exceptions) and seem kinda stupid. I'm not sure they could even pull off an academy offense.

    Something I hadn’t considered before is that even if he finds “his guy” before he fires Beatty, I don’t think he will be able to actually hire him until he’s interviewed minority coaches (assuming his guy isn’t a minority). Maybe hat rule has changed though. That takes time. I admittedly was on the “fire him whenever, but it doesn’t have to be right away” platform, but if we can’t even really start the official process until Beatty is gone, then he should really be gone tonight.

    I've been ready to fire him for three years. I saw all I needed to see in the first season. At this point the only reason not to fire him immediately is that you are in conversations with players, assistant coaches, and (hopefully) outside coaches as well ... with critical decisions imminent.

    I'm very glad I didn't watch this game.

    I doubt Beaty gets to the end of the season. He might not make it to Tursday afternoon. I'm all for a run first offense.

    Maybe Long can ring up Les Miles and talk him into building a program.

    Yeah, sure, whatever. I'd take him in a heartbeat, but he's not coming here. Would this create a problem on the defensive side of the ball, though? Our defense needs to be tuned to stop spread offenses, but who will they hone their skills against?

    I'm all for DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT. We simply don't have the talent resources to compete head-to-head with other spread offenses right now and most likely the near future. It's time to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT, so I'm onboard with the ground and pound offensive approach...as opposed to just being "offensive". (See what I did there?)

    The reality is, if we did go to a run game focused offense, it would actually shorten the games and thus keep the final score closer (hopefully). We are already getting blown out every other week by 50, so I don't see how this would hurt our fanbase any more than it already is. We aren't going to compete for the same athletes as all the other top schools in the conference, and so we can't compete with the spread. If it's not the Wyoming guy, I'd say go after the Army guy or Navy guy.

    I'd love for a ground and pound attack here. B12 defenses are all built around speed to defend the spread. If a coach had the patience to install the scheme and recruit bulldozers, B12 defenses would be in deep shit trying to defend it. There's this myth that a ground pounding offense doesn't throw the ball, but it's bullshit. If you can run the ball down the throat of the defense, then play action is the greatest weapon in all of sports. Honestly, I'm sick of having QBs who don't know how to take snaps under center. I'm over the spread and it's shotgun every snap. That's why spread offenses struggle in short yardage, because on 4th and 1 if you run it you're handing the ball off deep, and the back has to run 5 yards just to get back to the LOS, when you only need 1. I'm not overly picky at one kind of offense we run in the future, I just hope it's anything but the spread.

    Craig Bohl wouldn't even answer the phone call. By all accounts, he's in a perfect situation for him at Wyoming. He is an outdoorsman, and not uber-ambitious like most coaches. I don't think he'll coach anywhere else for the rest of his life.

    That said, sure, we'd give a guy like that an exceedingly fair chance. The problem KU has had isn't patience; it's simply that there has not been year-over-year progress with any of the last 3 coaches. In fact, KU coaches have regressed the longer they are here.
