Brilliant as always.

State funding cuts spur universities to ponder privatization

In this case, given how many times he’s met and talked with these two and given the accolades that he has heaped on them when talking to others, I think that he’ll be a longtime supporter of Bendapudi and Mazza. BGL, Vitter & all those other KU lackeys should probably start taking notes from these two new deans.

At this rate Goonewardene should have all those LRTC related fools packing in no time.

Chairman Gary Sherrer announces sudden and immediate resignation from Kansas Board of Regents

I think there are deeper problems. I'd expect Brownback to appoint three individuals capable of shaking up the whole system come June.

Issues at Kansas University medical school shouldn’t be ignored

How many incompetent people does it take to run KU? Why would a senior KU administrator tell Mr. Simons to count to 10 and go for a walk? Surely they know he has a tendency to write a Saturday column every once in a while. A simple comment about how KU was examining the situation would've sufficed.

KU: Students not selling magazines door-to-door in Kansas City area

I just assumed this was BGL's idea of a capital campaign.

KU hires consulting firm to help campuses spend less

Name one thing BGL has accomplished in 2 years or Vitter in a year that will have a lasting impact on KU. I'm guessing you'd have trouble making a list of any substance. True leaders get out there and lead, they don't hide behind an army of consultants, committees and mid-level administrators.

KU hires consulting firm to help campuses spend less

Took Vitter long enough to find the funds. He's been pitching this idea of hiring a consultant to KU's big donors almost since he got here. All the ones that I know who turned him down on his request all were thinking along kuprof54's point in that individuals like Vitter and BGL shouldn't need to hire consultants to look around and figure out what to cut.

It's almost disgusting how poor the leadership is at KU.
