The dream season of 2007 was an incredible ride.

I hope Perkins knows what he is doing. We got lucky getting Bill Self to replace Roy Williams - is there another good coach out there willing to come to KU?

I will not spend one cent of my money on KU athletics until Perkins in gone.

Shame on you Lew!

This always makes me smile. He said what all of us were thinking at that time, and you know it was true! One of the many reasons I will miss the Bear. Thanks again, Coach Mangino--and good luck to you.
