We don’t delve into the world of college football often but — with Lance Leipold — it’s time to make an exception.

Because if this man can turn Kansas Football around, there will be statues.

The more you learn about Leipold, the more it sounds like he’s the coach this team has been searching for all these years. Our Wisconsin readers no doubt remember Leipold’s absurd dominance at UW-Whitewater. Nobody won more often. Our Buffalo readers will fondly recall his work rebuilding the UB Bulls into a conference power.

Everywhere he goes, Lance Leipold fixes things. Last season, the Jayhawks made their first bowl game since 2008.

How? It’s all rooted in a true passion for the sport.
