Thanks for reminding us of another similarity between FM and MM. Their ADs did not have their back. Apparently, according to beenahawk, that's why MMs team went down the tube. Since FMs team didn't go down the tube, he didn't have to use that excuse.
Are you actually questioning whether Perkins had Mangino's (and the grid programs) best interest at heart back in 2009? Lew put extremely difficult hurdles in place, especially for a long, long suffering program and fan base. From "Select-A-Seat" to the Grid Iron Club Lew had one interest in mind, milk the grid program for every penny he could. No doubt in my mind that Lew Perkins GREED was a significant factor in the eventual fall of the entire grid program. And when it comes to Championships, it was PERKINS who moved the Misery game from Lawrence to Arrowhead in 07 the loss was bad enough, but the fan experience bordered on the worst I have EVER experienced.
The Buddha's termination has led to the darkest period in KU Football history, no way would it have ever have become this pathetic with Mangino still at the helm .
