Kansas Athletics Inc. officials have replaced a Touchdown Club recliner that was stolen from Memorial Stadium last week.

Jim Marchiony, an associate athletic director, said Monday that Kansas University officials are examining footage from security cameras to try to identify who stole the chair from the section near the south end zone that features the covered recliners.

According to a KU Public Safety Office report, the recliner was stolen between 8 p.m. Aug. 13 and 7 a.m. Aug. 15. The theft was reported to police last Wednesday. Loss was valued at $1,000.

Marchiony said this was the first theft of a recliner since KU established the Touchdown Club, and he said chairs are put in the section generally from mid-August to mid-November for the football season.

The Touchdown club may be the stupidest thing Uncle Lew did for us. You want how much money to sit in a glorified seat in the end zone?

I don't care how good the food or the chairs are, you are still in the end zone.

They would do much better to just put up the bleachers that used to be there. They could greatly expand the capacity of Memorial, and make it more affordable for folks.

I hope the chair thieves are given the chair. KIdding.
