    Holtz Still in the Running for KU job?????

    Looking on the internet this morning, I came across an article giving an update on the KU Head Coach Hiring Process. Here is the link:
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nca...6U8?li=BBnb7Kz

    In the article, I quotes Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) as stating: "Would expect a #Kansas coaching hire by the end of this week. Most attention has been around #Buffalo's Lance Leipold and #Arem's Jeff Monken, but #LouisianaTech's Skip Holtz is very much a contender, I'm told. All three in mid-50s with plenty of HC experience"

    Of course, as if to dash any real hopes, the article adds "Rittenberg mentions Skip Holtz, who has been very successful at Louisiana Tech, but is more of a retread than the other two names after an unsuccessful run at USF years ago."

    Could this really happen and we are free from the dead weight we currently have??? I truly wonder what the chances are.

    Someone on the other thread discussing this topic suggested Tech fans send money to Kansas asking them to hire Skip.

    If we are to assume Skip will only leave if he is hired by a Power 5 school this is quite possibly the only real shot he will ever get, if this is indeed an opportunity. There is absolutely no reason for Kansas to think he could propel Kansas to the top echelon of the Big 12. Throughout his time at Tech he has proven he can beat up on the bottom feeders of college football, that is his cap! And thank goodness our conference is loaded with bottomfeeders, otherwise he would have a losing record here. His offense would be a joke in the Big 12, may never score enough to even win a single game. How is he going to produce a Big 12 worthy QB?

    I do have hope that this will be the job for Skip. How many Power 5 schools continuously screw up football decisions like Kansas? Not many, what would one more horrible decision really cost them?

    KU hasn't had a winning season since 2008. Wins each year since then: 5, 3, 2, 1, 3, 3, 0, 2, 1, 3, 3, 0. That's 26 wins in 141 games, or a whopping .184 winning percentage.

    That's depressing. I hope we never go there!

    Remember also we have to choose between Skip staying and whoever Wood picks.

    Maybe he would have picked a guy who would have hired a real offensive coordinator. Maybe that new coach would win a conference championship in the worst conference in college football. Think of the possibilities.

    At this point, I would settle for a coach that allows his coordinators and position coaches to coach.

    Skip couldn’t even beat the bottom feeder Kansas

    Just saw on FB that Elko (from Texas A&M) has decided to stay there and not go to KU.

    The post seemed to imply that there had been serious discussions with Elko but in the end, he decided to stay at TAMU. Skippy still in the running.

    Skip never really in the running. The good news is our former A.D. is gone and would have given him a 10 year extension by now.
