All eyes on Turner Gill: Jayhawks’ coach looking to build relationships, trust

I never understand why people are afraid of people that are religious. They won't hurt you.

Pink I am certain that Gill has never forced anyone to pray. But I am sure he would pray for you to learn how to accept people and not judge them because God is an important part of their lives.

Before you make assumptions, I am not a religious person. I don't recall the last time I was in a church.

Turner Gill hiring follows a KU trend

If you want a winner the fans need to step up and act like winners. Don't pretend that you know more about it than the coaches. Fans don't know anything about coaching football. Let the coaches do their jobs.

Support the team and the coach. By freaking tickets and go to the game. Half full stadiums don't impress potential recruits. The university should not have to advertise to sell tickets. The university should not have do mini packages to keep fans from the visting school from buying the tickets.

As KU fans you can decide to help or you can decide to hinder. Calling for the AD to be fired only helps other schools recruit against KU. Do you think Pinkle is above telling a kid that the KU fans want to run Perkins out and that if Perkins goes so will Gill? If the AD needs to be fired the people who make that decision don't need the help of jimbob on a web site to help make that decision.

If you want a great football program then support them like you would the basketball program. It would make a big difference. If you don't want to support the football program then you will continue to have the same thing you have always had.

Turner Gill moves quickly to put new coaching team together

Lew removed of a rather large wart that was on the hiney of KU. He did it without breaking the bank. You should be thanking him for that.

NavyVet,

From above: "Citing the team’s significant defensive struggles at the time, however, Osborne went with Bo Pelini"

If the defense was not the biggest problem at that time Gill would be head coach at Nebraska now. But what would Osborne know about coaching anyway?

Turner Gill expected to take over as Kansas football coach

hellsbasement,

That is like a Nebraska fan saying that they wouldn't accept Danny Manning as a head basketball coach simply because he was a Jayhawk.

jayhawks71,

I did not include San Diego numbers because they are in the FCS division. Everyone wants to throw out Gills experience as an assistant on at NU. Gill was the QB coach in 95 on a team that is widely recognized as the best college football team of all time. But if that don't count for anything. Then neither does Harbaugh's record as San Deigo.

Terry Allen was 75-26 at Norther Iowa before he got the job at KU and won around 40% of the games. Sounds like Harbaugh.

Another thing I stumbled upon. Both Gill and Harbaugh were assistants under Bill Callahan. The difference is Gill left after one season with Billy and Harbaugh stayed with him until the Raiders fired Billy.

It seems odd that there is more information on this on the Lincoln Journal Star site than this one. The ball is the wrong shape to get much attention in this town.

Harbaugh the "home run" hire. 17-19 at Stanford. Wow. 47% winning percentage. That is way better than 40%. Clearly he would be worth 2.7 million a year.
