This Houston Nutt-to-Kansas thing has legs. I'm hearing that Nutt has a fractured relationship with his Ole Miss AD Pete Boone. That's why you saw him pop up out of nowhere on Monday.
Boone is the one who poo-pooed the stories yesterday that there was mutual interest between Kansas and his coach. The opposite, it seems, is true. Now its up to the Lew Perkins' braintrust. The Kansas AD and his inner circle were believed to be interviewing Buffalo's Turner Gill on Tuesday morning at the Waldorf-Astoria.
Is Gill still No. 1 with Nutt in the picture? Will Gill have to hit it out of the park in the interview for Kansas not to automatically turn to Nutt? KU would be lucky to get the two-time SEC coach of the year. He's media friendly (that would be welcome after Mark Mangino), a great recruiter and a heck of a coach.
Basically: Do you go for the proven commodity in Nutt or go for the up and comer in Gill? Stay tuned.
