    KU Disappointed In Fans

    The stadium experience did seem "rinky dink" on Saturday. The paper confirms it:

    Re: KU Disappointed In Fans

    I noticed that looking at the stands while watchin it on VS. The corners were WAY empty...with an undefeated ranked team. This is sad, and could very easily be the reason you see KU football have some success this year and go right back into the tank quickly.

    a KU alum told me on Monday that the only thing keeping Mangino at KU is his 400 pounds.

    We're outdrawing both KU and K-State right now. Kansans just can't get into their football I guess...

    As a recruit, would you really want to play for fans like that? I wouldn't.

    I loved this quote from a KU commenter:

    " It's no wonder ISU had a shot to win on Saturday, b/c their crowd was nearly as loud as the Jayhawk fans."

    Re: KU Disappointed In Fans

    I was at the game and the crowed, although much smaller, was a lot louder the second half. The first half of the game the KU fans were simply silent. It was like being in a twilight zone or something! Even when it was 3rd down there were no sounds coming from the fans, it's like they didn't know when to cheer (which is entirely possible).

    How much would it suck to be a pallbearer at that funeral?

    Dude needs to take care of himself. I seriously do not want anything to happen to him, I like the way he coaches.

    I agree. You would think with his resources and what he does for a living that he could shape up a little bit.

    Re: KU Disappointed In Fans

    KU had over 50,000 for their first 3 games & then only 48+ for the ISU game. It just didn't make sense, you would think they would come for a Big 12 game. If they win Saturday people will be begging for tickets next week. The students leaving at half is amazing. I just think bball has spoiled them.

    KU has always been a basketball school and always will be. Football will always be 2nd class at that school.
