Critiquing Drew Gooden's hairstyle


¢ Former KU basketball standout Drew Gooden's hairstyle is critiqued by a columnist on [Travelgolf.com][1]. (Yes, we know Drew Gooden has no connection to golf.) But blogger T.R. Massey describes Gooden as having "his head shaved except for a spot on the base of his skull, right where his spine hooks onto his head. The hair patch is as about as big as a taco."What if this hair style extends over the to the PGA Tour. Well, you'd never see it because everyone wears a hat. But you'd see it on the 18th, when they pull off their tops and shake hands. __After thinking about it, I guess it would be refreshing on the PGA Tour. Some personality, individualism. In the NBA, it seems kind of dumb.¢ Sally Mason, the former dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Kansas University, is still in the running to become president at Purdue University, the [Indianapolis Star][2] reports. Purdue's board of trustees will select a new president on Monday. Mason currently is provost at Purdue.¢ Larry Keating, senior associate athletic director at KU and chair of the NCAA's committee studying an extended three-point line, is quoted in several media outlets about the recommended change, including the [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.][3]"Since the three-point line was implemented, the game has changed," said Larry Keating, chair and senior associate athletics director at the University of Kansas. "The student-athletes playing are bigger and stronger and we need to adjust for that."¢ President Bush has nominated a KU graduate, Jill E. Sommers, to be a commissioner on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, according to a [White House press release.][4] Sommers has served as policy director and head of U.S. Government Affairs at the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, and also was associate director of government affairs at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
