Ugly Jayhawk

A video now making the rounds on the Internet is an embarrassment to Kansas University.

Kansas University alumni everywhere should be embarrassed by football coach Mark Mangino’s profane tirade that’s displayed for all the world to see on YouTube.

Mangino also gets physical with Raimond Pendleton in the videotaped incident, triggered when Pendleton capped a touchdown run with a dive into the end zone, bringing a penalty flag. Woody Hayes would’ve been proud of Mangino’s outburst, that’s uglier than the big gouge in the Campanile hillside.

It is disappointing that neither Athletic Director Lew Perkins nor Chancellor Robert Hemenway has publicly addressed this shameful reflection on the university.

Apparently, anything goes.
