Jeff Long. Les Miles. A new era of Kansas football.
And for a while, things went well. Miles salvaged the recruiting class. He even has a full class for next year (2020), put together before the season started - all verbal commits, of course. And of course, we heard all the right things from those in charge.
“We’ll give you a program to be proud of.”
“We’ll play dominant football.”
“We’re well on our way to playing in significant games.”
Fan enthusiasm was up. Energy in the stadium for the first two games was something we haven’t seen since early in the Turner Gill era.
