KU Football Program Dead at 120
The University of Kansas Football Program was found dead Saturday evening at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence. The KU faithful in the stands that night could only gasp in horror as North Dakota State bludgeoned a barely breathing program to death. Turner Gill turned himself in Tuesday morning to authorities who were seeking him on charges of accessory to murder. Also sought is Athletic Director, (Sweet) Lew Perkins, those familiar with the case claim Sweet Lew has fled the state. If convicted, Gill could be sentanced to up to 10 years as Mark Mangino's food tester.
Born in 1890, Kansas Football hasn't always been the laughing stock of the Big 12. Three NFL Hall of Famers have played at Kansas (John Riggins, Gale Sayers, and Mike McCormack). They even won an Orange Bowl. They amassed a 6-6 record in 12 Bowl Games alltime. Not too shabby for a basketball school. The Program will be missed by other Big 12 schools who would count on an easy victory every year, as well as by the few thousand who regularly attended KU Football games. When does Basketball Season start?
When reached by Kansas City News, Mark Mangino had no comment, but a huge smile on his face!
