When it just means more… at Kansas?

What do you get when you import an SEC head coach and an SEC athletic director?  Why, this:

Kansas standout running back Pooka Williams has been reinstated following a seven-month suspension but will sit out the 2019 season opener, the team announced Monday.

Williams, arrested and charged with domestic battery in December, reached a domestic violence diversion agreement with the Douglas County district attorney’s office in March…

Williams was charged in December after an 18-year-old Kansas student he was dating told police that he punched her in the stomach and grabbed her throat. An affidavit obtained by The Kansas City Star showed that the woman had text messages from Williams admitting to punching her. A police officer found bruises on the woman, according to the affidavit….

“Pooka has taken responsibility for his actions and we are happy he is back with the team,” Miles said in a statement. “This young man has learned much throughout this process and we will support him as he continues working through the required educational and accountability steps.”

Folks, there’s a new Second Chance U in town.

  1. Is JJ going to end up in Lawrence except he’ll have to sit? It’s pretty much the same scenario.

    I guess Les has more job security than Gus …… or he would be headed for Auburn

    If there has ever been a football coach devoid of a brain it is Les. One of the funniest segments i ever saw of him on tv was he and his children sitting around the breakfast table
    Being interviewed. I thought I was watching a rerun of the Munsters. His daughter couldn’t stop eating her eggs long enough to answer any questions, that girl was hungry.

      I’m a fan of Les. I don’t think he’s devoid of a brain, he just flat doesn’t give a shit. A CFB coach who doesn’t take himself uber seriously is kind of refreshing, IYAM.

        Agreed. Les is crazy like a fox. I wish he had done the TV thing a little more, but he’s fun to have in the game.

    Kansas is scraping the very bottom of the Auburn West cesspool these days. Watch what happens when the NCAA BB FBI stuff finally comes out and the curtain is pulled back on Bill Self and that rogue basketball program he’s been running. https://sports.yahoo.com/forde-minutes-bill-self-kansas-said-silvio-de-sousa-punishment-223114707.html

    Les said, “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Play The Game Tonight”. We’re already past “The Point of Know Return”. We need some “Miracles Out of Nowhere” or Jeff and I will be “Dust In The Wind”.

    And with that, I’ll just show myself the door.

    Choirboys in Lawrence, just like…………
    Choirboys in Baton Rouge!!


  7. Miles has to keep whoever he can to try to establish anything like a football team at KU. In the past 10 seasons, Kansas is 6-82 in Big 12 games…! They truly need a miracle.
