The University of Kansas has hired Turner Gill as its next football coach. Gill has been at Buffalo University where he has a record of 20-30 in four seasons. Probably the pinnacle of his career at Buffalo is when his team beat a highly regarded Ball State team in a conference championship in 2008. He is best known for playing QB at Nebraska.
This is either a great hire of an up and coming coach or a compromise/make do pick by KU. The big questions have been; can he recruit? and what kind of offense will KU have. We'll just have to wait and see.
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
