KU fans seem to hate Gill right now, and I suppose with good reason. But is he the kind of guy you really want to essentially expunge from existence? I mean it's not like he Quin Snydered you fellas or anything. He didn't bring in a bunch of women beaters and rapists, didn't do coke, put you on probation or nail a player's girlfriend. If nothing else, he was a damn fine representative for your program. Does that spare him any barbs here or is it pretty much just raw, unadulterated hate?

There just seems to be a lot of personal venom towards Gill. I know he was a shitty coach, but damn, he didn't go all Sandusky or anything.
Well, it's a varying degree of hate, but I'd put it on a scale just above Herm. But I hate Herm more than you do.

From my perspective, I hate him as much as anyone would who is a fan of a program that spent years in the cellar, appeared to be climbing the hell out and in the space of 2 years, is farther down in the cellar than they have been in my lifetime.

He's probably a nice guy, but he was an embarrassment to the university and absolutely murdered any progress we had made as a program.
