Indeed. If I did my job twice as good as these guys do theirs, I'd have been fired years ago.

I think Girod realized that he wasn't going to be able to raise $300 Million from donors as long as Zenger was in place. Big time donors aren't interested in throwing money into a hole... they expect at least the prospect for improvement.

Beaty will get fired, but not until the season is over (or almost over), and a new AD is in place.

David Beaty can do everything he needs to to change the football program's culture for the better though a simple act of Harakiri.

Demolish it? You have several teams of firefighters there... wouldn't it be more fun to burn it down? I'm just saying: everyone likes s'mores.

Not all scholarships are full scholarships. That number misrepresents and diminishes the true financial burden that today's students bear.

I have a different theory that I think should be explored: there are just a lot of greedy, superficially religious people who lack compassion for the less fortunate in society and who are willing to overlook racism, bigotry, and xenophobia in an effort to get low taxes, reduced regulations, and prohibitions on abortion. These are people who fear government will be used as a weapon against them rather than as a tool with which to do good for everyone. And those are the people who show up to vote. They didn't vote for Trump because they were anxious about the economy or because they are intolerant themselves, they voted for him because they liked the things he promised about making government smaller (fear of government as a weapon) and making and keeping money for themselves (greed). Throw in single issue votes on guns (fear of government as a weapon) and abortion (superficially religious), and you have yourself Trump as president.

Well, we have to come up with some way to finance those expressions of gratitude toward our former chancellors, don't we?

I'm glad that there were no other pressing issues in the state of Kansas standing in the way of 6 am beer. The ability to have a beer with my pancakes or fried eggs first thing in the morning has been a sorely missing component of my life since I moved to Kansas. Thank god we've corrected this horrible wrong.

If you can't provide data to show that it is a success, then KanCare should be considered a failure by default. This idea that we can keep inadequate records then make the narrative whatever we want it to be because there isn't evidence to the contrary is the foundation upon which corruption and negligence is built.
