The Kansas Jayhawk football team has found its replacement for the fired Mark Mangino, and apparently, he’s already worn out whatever welcome fans had prepared for him. Granted, Gill’s only been on the job for about two days, but obviously, that’s enough time to make a value judgement as to whether or not he’s worthy of being hired. So what’s the logical step when your “team” (funny, there wasn’t this much outcry about the KU football program until their BCS Bowl) makes what you consider to be a bad hire?
Start a Fire Turner Gill site, naturally.
Apparently, the beef with Gill — I mean, besides ignorance, because, lets face it, KU fans had no clue who this guy was two weeks ago — is he isn’t a proven enough winner and doesn’t deserve a shot a such a football program
that recently had a taste of postseason success that’s held in such high regard around the country. In the minds of some Kansas City sports radio jockeys, a Saturday article from Jason Whitlock discussing Gill has something to do with the sentiments of rejection towards KU’s new football coach.
Of course, some of these unhappy fans forgot to read Whitlock’s closing sentiments, which said Gill has two seasons to win him over. Or maybe they mistook “years” for “days,” while taking those Jim Harbaugh rumors directly to heart. Um yeah, about that: Did you really think Harbaugh was going to agree to a sideways move after making Stanford relevant again?
Besides, Harbaugh’s got an incredible bathroom at his disposal. How can KU compete with such amenities?
