Kansas University football coach Mark Mangino, when asked how he would compete for recruits with Kansas State and Oklahoma, said KU's academic standards were higher. Can you be more specific?
According to Paul Buskirk, KU's associate athletic director for support services, KU and Kansas State have identical admission standards for freshmen. But transfers are another story.
"It has been my experience," Buskirk said, "that KU is more stringent about accepting transfer credits from other institutions than Kansas State is."
Buskirk said he could not compare KU and Oklahoma, but because Mangino lumped OU and KSU together, it's likely the two schools have similar liberal transfer policies.
