Regents’ action

December 20, 2011


To the editor:

Dolph Simons’ wish that the Board of Regents get more involved in matters at the University of Kansas echoes my feelings with regard to the ticket scandal, football problems and the leadership issue at the medical school. The last time I remember the Board of Regents weighing in on a KU matter was in the mid 1950s when the board denied Phog Allen the opportunity to coach Wilt Chamberlain by denying him the waiver of the mandatory retirement age of 65. And now Bill Snyder is 72.

Not to be hypercritical, but it would have been refreshing if the writer of this letter had been more interested in the academic side of the university than the athletic side. As someone with a bit more education than the average Kansan, I would have expected more from this writer.
