KU football’s Parish arrested on four charges

December 29, 2009


Kansas University offensive lineman Darius Parish was released from the Johnson County jail Sunday night after being charged with one count of making a criminal threat, one count of criminal trespassing and two counts of criminal damage.

Making a criminal threat is a felony under Kansas law; the other three counts are misdemeanors.

A KU spokesperson confirmed Tuesday night that Parish was involved in the incident, but said the school would reserve comment until the legal process had taken its course.

Parish, a sophomore from Wichita, red-shirted this season after making the switch from defensive line to offensive line. As a freshman in 2008, he played in 12 of the team's 13 games and finished the year with eight tackles.

He was released Sunday on $7,500 bail.

I used to work for Sunflower B.B. The games are decided before the season begins and cable/satelite providers have no input. That is all ther are "PROVIDERS"

I found the game was available via live streaming online here: password: phog

I don't know if this link will be good for all ESPN2 KU games, but it's worth a try.

Hitme, you're right on the money re our "carnival announcer." He's a complete embarrassment to KU basketball, and should either tone it down or move on.

I don't live in Lawrence but those of you who subscribe to cable need to flood your provider with phone calls and e-mails to put in ESPN U. It'll take a LOT of you to do it and do it properly, not complaining.

Call Lew while you're at it. This is his doing and the local channels have absolutely no control over it. Seriously, as many of you as possible need to contact your cable company.
