Fremantle coach Ross Lyon says the AFL must consider scrapping the pre-finals bye after Sydneys thumping preliminary final win over Geelong.The week off before the playoffs - in addition to another break as reward for winning their qualifying final - meant the Cats had played only one game in the 27 days leading into Fridays 37-point loss at the MCG.Geelong looked far from switched on in the games early stages, giving up eight unanswered goals and Lyon says its clear the extra time off hurt their performance.Once you break that cycle, its impossible to replicate an AFL senior game over that period of time, he told Fox Footy on Saturday.Its indisputable what you saw at the start of the game. Its going to be a real issue. I think they have to look at the formula.Youve got to be rewarded for winning the most games (and finishing) top-four. Thats been fundamental to the competition. But thats now dissipated that advantage.Its now a potential negative if you have the week off (and) win your first final.Lyon is the latest AFL figure to weigh in against the bye, with Hawthorn skipper Luke Hodge also expressing concerns.But Geelong coach Brad Scott said their opinion was unchanged - that they would rather have had it.We clearly need to analyse how we approached it, he said after Friday nights game.We were confident going in ... we thought we gave ourselves every chance.It was completely in our control and we just didnt deliver.The league introduced an end-of-season bye this year, wanting to stop the trend of finals-bound clubs resting players en masse in the final round of the regular season.A poll last month showed all 18 coaches were against the concept, although Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge has since welcomed the opportunity to help several players recover from injuries.AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has said the league will wait until after the finals to weigh up whether the bye should continue.

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Two wins earned David Beaty at least two more years at Kansas.Earned him a hefty raise, too.The school rewarded the second-year coach for modest but tangible signs of progress Monday with a two-year contract extension that could keep him at the Big 12 school through the 2021 season. The deal also takes his salary to $1.6 million in the first year with an additional $100,000 each succeeding year.Beaty had been among the worst-paid coaches in power-five conferences, making $800,000 last season.This shows our appreciation for Coach Beaty, his staff and our players, Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger said. I have enjoyed watching their progress during this season. We want to capitalize on the momentum we all saw as the season came to a close. This reflects our belief in Coach Beatys leadership, and the energy and enthusiasm that we see every day from him and his players.Beatys contract extension includes additional incentive payments for achievements including conference championships, bowl victories and coach-of-the-year honors.I am appreciative of Dr. Zenger and our administrations show of support, said Beaty, who is expected to speak with reporters Wednesday. He and his staff have gone above and beyond to give us everything we need to build our program.The program was a wreck when Beaty arrived two years ago.Turner Gill had failed to reach the same heights that Mark Mangino reached before his firing, and all Charlie Weis managed to accomplish over parts of threee campaigns was to win six games and leave the program lacking talent when he was let go midway through the 2014 season.dddddddddddd.Weis gambled with Division I and junior college transfers that not only didnt pan out, but also left Beaty and his coaching staff with scholarship numbers well off the national average.Beaty, who arrived from Texas A&M and has deep ties to Texas high schools, hit the recruiting trail. Selling only his vision and the promise of future success, he has managed to increase the talent level and build enough depth that the Jayhawks were finally competitive in Big 12 play.The Jayhawks nearly beat TCU, falling 24-23, and went toe-to-toe with Iowa State before a breakthrough win over Texas. It was their first over the Longhorns since 1938 and snapped a 19-game Big 12 skid.Texas coach Charlie Strong was fired soon after the defeat. Beaty ultimately got an extension soon after the win.Our staff and players have worked diligently to lay a strong foundation for the years to come, Beaty said. While we have certainly made some progress, we still have work to do to get to where we ultimately want to be and we look forward to continuing to take on that challenge. I am excited about the future of this program and am very honored to be the man leading it.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.
