Kansas University Football first Attracted Bishop Miege High School Coach, Now Player Tre Parmalee

Kansas University first hired Charlie Weis from Florida.
Charlie negotiated a good salary for the assistant coaches. The first coach Charlie hires was Tim Grunnard from Bishop Miege in Roeland Park, Kansas. Tim was the head football coach of the Miege Stags and a former Kansas City Chiefs football player. My Gardner Trailblazer's have played the Stags a couple times over the last couple years and I think Tim did a wonderful job representing the Stags. I always liked his demeanor on the sidelines.

Now that Tim is headed to Kansas University, he may have had some pull to get Tre Parmalee.
Tre Parmalee, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound receiver out of Bishop Miege High School, orally committed to the Kansas football team on Wednesday night.

Parmalee is the first commitment for new KU coach Charlie Weis. Parmalee picked KU after de-committing from Northern Illinois.
Tim Grunnard is the first hired and Tre Parmalee is the first commitment for KU.
I like the idea of getting some of the football talent from the area. This should be good to watch Tim and Tre on the KU sidelines, even though I'm a Kansas State Wildcat.

Is CBS full of BS or did sunspots really cause problems in the Kansas Jayhawks vs Missouri Tigers game?

Is CBS full of BS or did sunspots really cause problems in the Kansas Jayhawks vs Missouri Tigers game?





According to an article in the Sunday Edition of the Kansas City Star, Jerry Caraccioli who is the executive director of communications for CBS Sports in New York told the Star that the switch in games was caused by a “combination of sunspots and a satellite transponder issue.”



KCTV 5 is blaming the problem on the CBS Sports Network. CBS Sports is blaming the problem on the sun. Now I can understand where CBS Sports is coming from. Gas wouldn’t pump at the gas station today because of sun spots. A home buyer missed an appointment to view an awesome foreclosure because sunspots wiped out her calendar. A nurse doing test on my son today couldn’t get the equipment to work right because, you guessed it, sunspots.



This sunspot thing has been an issue for quite a while. The problem is people have been ignoring the issue. This sunspot issue is big. Did you know that a CBS reporter off the record has said that nearly every negative problem is caused by sunspots.


Will sunspots effect the March Madness Tournament?



I’m just surprised that with all of this technology, we can’t figure out a way to deal with sunspots. Any ideas?

Was it CBS Sports or KCTV 5 that snubbed the #2 Ranked Kansas Jayhawks? Will you boycott CBS?

Was it CBS Sports or KCTV 5 that snubbed the #2 ranked Kansas Jayhawks? Will you boycott CBS?



Sure enough, if you’re a Kansas Jayhawk or Missouri Tiger fan you may know what I’m talking about. You might have even heard the screams in your house like I did. My boys and I were watching the Kansas State Wldcats upstairs and we heard my wife scream in disgust downstairs.



Yesterday, CBS switched the final 3 minutes of the exciting game between the rival Big 12 ranked teams, Kansas Jayhawks and Missouri Tigers, for the Little 10 teams, Michigan and Michicagn State game.



Immediately, the social media channels were filled with hatred toward CBS decision. Other local Kansas City tv stations were reporting that the local CBS KCTV 5 station were filled with complaints.

CBS KCTV 5 apologized and reported that they had no control. They said the national CBS station made the choice to switch games. Tweeters were laughing out loud in Missouri, because their CBS affiliates apparently ignored or did not get the memo to switch games. Jayhawkers in western Kansas were filling the pains of their Kansas City Jayhawk friends and were giving them the play by play.



What happened? Remember the Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV 5 reported that the national CBS Sports made the decision to switch games. Other CBS affiliates in Kansas and Missouri didn’t make the switch. The Kansas City KCTV 5 apologized and played the entire second half of the game at 10:30 Saturday night. Nope, I didn’t watch it either.



I did watch the exciting Kansas Jayhawk ending on ESPN. While the #2 Jayhawks won by 4, I would guess the local CBS affliiate, KCTV 5, lost thousands of fans.



Some local bloggers and social media experts are calling for a local CBS boycott. Will you participate?

If you're like me you have Jan. 29th circled on your calendar - Kansas State Wildcats vs. Kansas Jayhawks

Last night the Kansas University Jayhawks overpowered Valpo. Tonight, the Kansas State University Wildcats slowly dismantled the #23 Virginia Tech Hokies. The Wildcats started slow, but ended winning 73-57.

This year should be a good year for both the Jayhawks and Wildcats and if your're like me you have two dates circled on your calendar.

The first date is when the Wildcats visit Lawrence and take on the Jayhawks on January 29th at 7:00 pm EST.

On Valentines Day, the Jayhawks return the visit to Manhattan to take on the Wildcats at 9:00 pm EST.

This year should be an exciting year in college basketball in the Sunflower State. I like college basketball and the Sunflower Showdown has always been special. I'll will still be rooting for my KSU Wildcats.
