Is The Kansas Brass Out Of Touch?

Tom Keegan of the Lawrence Journal-World makes a case that three of the biggest names at Kansas are out of touch. Here's a sampling of the article:

↵

Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little:

↵

Whichever adviser told the chancellor it was fine to blow off the Big 12 meetings — after all, it’s just a sports deal and who really cares about sports, right? — needs to advise the chancellor to find a better adviser.

↵
↵

AD Lew Perkins:

↵
↵

Many alumni grateful to Perkins for elevating the budget through aggressive fundraising felt betrayed by the ticket scandal that took place under his watch. Too many customers paying for prime seats felt cheated. Others wished he had kept popular football coach Mark Mangino.

↵
↵

Basketball coach Bill Self:

↵
↵

Self’s words are a tonic similar to the tail-wagging dog who greets you at the door after an absolutely miserable day at work and makes you realize you aren’t as worthless as you thought you were, makes you understand that although things seem hopeless, nothing’s really changed. Your dog still loves you unconditionally, and nobody’s cooler than your dog.

↵
↵

Not surprising that the author -- Tom Keegan -- trashed the Chancellor and outgoing AD but had nice things to say about Self. Gotta preserve that access, baby!
