Editorial: Winning ways

I think Perkins did some much damage to KU sports that it is difficult to quantify. That said he has been gone 3-4 years and football progress is hard to see. Good Jayhawk fans have voted with their feet to say no more bad football . Like me they have found other things to do on game day than engage in watching the poor product put on the field. It is time for accountability with KU Athletics. Win or be gone.

Editorial: Winning ways

It is way past time for KU to compete in football. The recent past and current state of the program hurt the Athletic Department, the University and the City of Lawrence. I have not been to Lawrence in nearly four years and I will not return for a football game until the Jayhawk football team shows me it can compete. I know I am not the only person who will not spend money at KU or in Lawrence.

Everyday Life: The only thing we have to fear …

I read this editorial and shed a tear for the way we in America treat our financial criminals. Long prison terms and heavy fines! Can't we all just get along? If we gave them a monthly check instead of incarceration they could cease their lives of crime and do good things for our communities. Given financial stability and enhanced self esteem these one time criminals and social outcasts could reengage in society to help build a better future for all.

Run it up? Oklahoma Sooners wouldn't stoop so low

Sad. With no hope of winning the local papers run articles begging for slack from our opponents. I guess there really is nothing else that the reporter can truthfully write on concerning this team.

D-tackles difficult to find

Landers should be panders. Consistence should be consistent. Try to stay ahead of spelling police. Thanks

Keeston Terry switch frees safety’s mind

The coach wants to make sure he does not act with haste. This is the type of complacency that people develop when they get 5 year guaranteed contracts to be paid ten million dollars. This coach will bear no consequences for putting a miserable product on the field. Gil does not have to worry about running the program into the ground as Lew Perkins set him up for life. The KU fans get to live with the results.

D-tackles difficult to find

I agree that finding great interior defensive linemen is difficult but bringing no one to play the position is a blue print for the nations worst defense. This article just landers to the mistakes of the worst coaching staff in the Big 12. I wish the writer could be honest and just lay the bare truth out for readers that the KU defense cannot compete in BCS football and probably not be a consistence winner at the FCS level of competition. We do not need articles that try to provide excuses for Kansas football mediocrity.

Chief consultant

It is sad that the local paper cannot see the real story here of a public employee pensioner taking another public sector job that is nothing but make work. KU has long had its own police department so why the need for the Athletic Department to have its own security person? Why does KU need to spend $115,000 plus fringe benefits on this guy? Perkins has simply hired his own personal protector until he retires.

Kansas AD Lew Perkins will still live in Lawrence

This is great news. Trickle down economics will favor all the small people in Larence once Perkins spents all he has squeezed out of KU.
