Report: Kansas Athletics debt on the rise

"The documents filed with the IRS also indicated that the department paid nearly $2.2 million to the Orange Bowl in 2008-09, ranking the bowl No. 4 on the department’s list of highest-paid independent contractors. The expense reflected the amount of money the department spent on bowl tickets, which in turn were sold by Kansas Athletics."

The department spent $2.2 million on bowl tickets but no record of how much they were sold for or any accounting thereof. Maybe this should be next on the list to investigate to see what the return on investment was.

Lester 'shocked' by Perkins' resignation

Miracles do happen! Now, let's get the report on the ethics violation and the ticekt scandel and make sure he doesn't get another dime from KU. For those of you who support Big Lew, I must question your business ethics. Building facilities and raising cash is nothing compared to the taint he has brought to KU. None of it was worth it since all we received was a HUGE negative spotlight across the KU Nation that will take years to rebuild the trust he violated. He didn't win us the National Championship or the Orange Bowl. Self and Magino accomplished that with their coaching skills and team players. Big Lew swaggered us right into the East Coast dirty business spotlight. Thanks for nothing, put the for sale sign out front of your house soon and go back to where you came from. Good Bye!

Wayward pet found after 3-week excursion

Yes, later she posted signs around town with the dogs picture. Ruby and Carol have such a close bond, it's a Godsend they are together again!

Branding irony

Love your post! If only the KU Chancellor would read these blogs Perkins would be gone now. I heard that KU season ticket holders were going to sue the Athletic Dept. I'd jump on board that suit in a minute!

Will Perkins be next?

Mr. Keegan, If the Chancellor decides to cut ties with Lew, is there a contract buyout of any sort if he is relesed for cause? Will we have to pay him $3 million or more to leave the State of Kansas? There are cost considerations here, and I mean KU donations. My guess is, receipt of donations will be reduced substantially if Perkins remains at the helm of the Athletic Dept. I hope the powers that be are thinking about that revenue. There is a lack of trust and I find it hard to believe it will ever be regained with current management.

KU Athletic Director Perkins victim of alleged blackmail scheme

Can we start a petition requesting Lew's separation from KU along with each one of his relatives? I don't understand how his releasing the blackmail scheme now is in his favor. Probably his publicist recommended he be forthcoming about it before a news hound discovered it. He wouldn't want to be caught sweeping anything under the rug now would he?!?!?!? Eww Lew is right! Your day of "being responsible" for the TAINT at KU is coming....hopefully sooner than we hope!

KU chancellor says Perkins' contract with Overland Park company isn't a problem

Well....isn't that a big surprise! Big Louigi got another one of his "deals" approved. Probably wrote the press release himself. Shaking my head. Maybe someday we will be governed by ethics instead of greed.

KU declines to release details of Mangino's settlement agreement for now, says deal is not finalized

The request filed Friday also requests that the athletics corporation release the results of an investigation into Mangino’s conduct as coach.

The athletics corporation denied access to those records, claiming they were directly related to job performance, and exempt from disclosure under the open records law.
-------
What a farce! The details seemed open to the public when the allegations were being investigated. How long can Lew get away with this?!?!??!
