One of the best things about having a stellar basketball or football team is that it makes recruiting in other sports a little easier.â†µ
For example, Kansas basketball. If you're a sports fan, then you've heard of Kansas basketball. And, if you're choosing your next school, wouldn't the thought of watching a team capable of making a deep NCAA tournament run seem appealing?â†µ
Apparently it does to Miege offensive lineman Phil Ford, who was asked by TheShiver.com what he liked about Kansas.â†µ
The FOOD a lot haha and the campus is raw and I really like coach Grimes a lot and coach Gill and the Cheerleaders. And its awesome going to a basketball game and get to see the best team in the nation play. And their practice field, it always feels good on my feet.â†µ
Ford is being recruited by Kansas and Minnesota.â†µ
Missouri's response might be to ask the Jayhawks to play football instead of basketball.
