August 29: Recruiting overview
Kansas is trapped in a weird recruiting cycle. We need players now, but we don't have enough scholarships. We'll be saying the same thing next year too.

After a little over a week under their belts, the Jayhawks prepare for an open scrimmage in preseason camp.
What do we have, exactly?
A typical college football team carries 80-85 scholarship players. Kansas will start with around 65, counting the walk-ons who have earned scholarships. Will the Jayhawks have enough to field a capable team?
24 July 2015
The temperature is around 105 degrees
Fahrenheit on the day I begin this blog. It hardly seems like a time
to consider football. Yet here I am, perhaps ready to witness the
worst football season at the University of Kansas since the late
1980s, and perhaps the worst season for a major-conference program in
the BCS and playoff era. This is Season Zero. This
is the first year for the head coach, David Beaty. This is the year
that might shake his faith in every one his qualities, as well as
those of the players. The Jayhawks will be an underdog in every game.
The team will begin the season with around 60 original scholarship
players. KU is not on probation either. Season Zero is
of the program's own doing. 2015 will mark the foundation of the
greatest construction since Bill Snyder lifted rival K-State from the
bottom, or perhaps 2015 is not even the bottom yet. Season
Zero begins in August.
