To the editor:
"An Incredible Year" indeed, for both basketball and football. I don't know who the geniuses are that put the book together, but I am disappointed that they did it without mention of the incredible year our football team had as well. That book was, in my opinion, a collective slap in the face of our football players and coaches.
It should have been called "49 and 4: KU Basketball and Football 2008," and included pictorials chronicling both teams. I understand the difference between winning the Orange Bowl championship and winning the national title outright, but our football season was not exactly chopped liver. Surely they deserved a footnote.
A year like this will probably never come again in our lifetimes, and we missed a real opportunity to document it. What a shame. I am a proud fan of both programs and look forward to next season.
