Coach Mark Mangino gets the most out of his talent. Kansas finished No. 40 in this year's recruiting rankings. Here are Burton's thoughts on what that will get Mangino:


The bottom line is this: Some coaches do better coaching up blue-collar recruits than they do with blue-chip recruits and de-programming them. I think Mark Mangino is clearly one of those coaches.
For the most part, Mangino identifies raw talent and he identifies a raw desire in kids, then he molds them. That's what he was forced to do at Kansas State under Bill Snyder, and it's what he did with Bob Stoops at OU early on with guys like Josh Heupel and Quentin Griffin - neither of whom were big-time recruits.

New Mustangs football coach is anything but ordinary

June Jones III couldn't walk when he came out of the coma in March 2001. Yet he was lucky in infinite ways after his Lincoln Town Car smashed into a Honolulu overpass. Most people who suffer torn aortas are paralyzed if they survive at all.

Jones just wanted out of the hospital.

The doctor said he could leave when he could lap the labyrinth of hallways on his floor.

After two weeks of painstaking progression, dragging his body and his IV-on-wheels, he finally did it.

Jones ripped the tubes out of his nose and arms, called Artie Wilson, his best friend from childhood, to pick him up and left.
"I never went back," Jones said.
