    What are the odds the top recruits, including Tyler, follow Cael? I would assume some of the current wrestlers will follow but from a future perspective I am more worried about the redshirted freshmen class and incoming freshmen class. Any word? I would assume that Cael doesn't have enough...

    Danny Manning as KU Head Coach if Self leaves?

    If Self leaves, it could put KU in a tough situation with Manning as an assistant. Would they be forced to give him the nod. Many times hiring an assistant may be OK, but with KU being a top school will they be settling to satisfy the fan base and past-legend/current assistant? If Manning...
