SB Nation’s Rock Chalk Talk has an interesting article on the Lew Perkins regime, which has recently been marred by controversy.â†µ
Just two years removed from that incredible ‘07-’08 academic year things seem to be catching up with ol Lew and his detractors from a few years back have a little bit of wiggle room to grumble once again. I’ll keep my personal opinion to myself for the time being, but I wanted to ask the question. Is it time for Lew to go? Is it time to change directions and wipe the slate clean? No Kansas fan enjoys seeing their team or school with a black eye, the question is what side of the story do you believe? And more-so, what side of the story does the rest of the public perception believe?â†µ
The public perception is likely that he’s done something wrong. First, there was Mark Mangino. Then there was the ticket scandal. Most recently is the fitness equipment situation.â†µ
Maybe Lew survives in the court of public opinion looking at those individually. But once you combine all three together, it’s hard to make a case for Lew Perkins to continue on free of criticism.
