Outrageous.................. I am an avid supporter of KU athletics - HOWEVER this is outrageous. A Kansas based company is losing it's contract for athletics concessions - TO SAVE MONEY and they are giving 750,000 to the AD. How wrong is this......... and it was for a job he didn't go to in 2006........ I had always had respect for the Chancellor but this makes it pretty rocky. Of course it happens when he is about to resign........... where is your respect for KU soon to be ex-Chancellor Hemenway. We the middle class are losing jobs up there WOW 750,000 could pay 100 to 200 of us for a year.
Where does this crap all end. I brainwash myself everyday to keep the faith and for what!
