Of all the KU fans that have been on the board so far there hasn't been a single douche.  Maybe im just overreacting a bit because of the douchebaggery we endure from the UCiFers but im happy to actually interact with a classy fan base.  Props to you fellas and heres to a great game Friday.  :cheers

I don't think anyone ran into any trouble in Lawrence a couple years ago. Maybe the random student who drank a little too much and fired off some mild smack talk. But other than that, it was a good time.

I've noticed the same. Great to have some classy interaction with other school's fans.

Reminds me of Auburn, a tad - who earned a fan based on the way they handle the opposition and strangers..

It's going to be a great game and I will be rooting for you guys after friday just because of how classy you guys have been.  The only thing that irritates me is the fat jokes about our coach but that's just cause after 6 years it's kinda old.  However I do realize we have only played one other time so you guys need your time to take a poke at him.  I just was really happy to see the compliments you guys had for our coach and players.  I still however think KU wins by 14+.  Just a personal opinion.

I am hoping for a great game. A two TD loss, as you predict, would definitely be a horrible start to my weekend.

But regarding your comment about the fat jokes... and don't take this as a slight...

I am actually worried about his health. Being a college football coach must be incredibly stressful (I've seen him get pretty flustered and being a fan is stressful enough), leading to high blood pressure as it is. Excessive weight only takes a bigger toll on the body, often leading to diabetes, heart disease and joint pains.

I can't help but wonder why he doesn't opt for a lap-band surgery or something. I mean, he makes money and I'm sure he would even get paid to do it, since he would be one of the highest profile people to do it. I'd hope someone in his family talks to him about it.

Anyway, I don't know why I'm posting this, maybe just venting because I've had this discussion with my wife about Mangino in the past. I'd hate to see a great coach get sick.

First off, you guys have been great fans to have around and I hope that your traveling contingent is treated well.  I know I'll correct those who get out of line, and I hope other Bulls fans do as well to ensure that KU fans have a blast.

That being said... I don't think anyone is critical of Mangino as a coach.  The guy is a FANTASTIC coach, his players love him, and he's good with the media.  He reminds me a lot of Leavitt.  Pretty much all we have is fat jokes, because the guy is a class act and great at what he does.

if any of you KU guys or gals are looking for a place to have a beer or 10 I'll be in the north side of lot 6 (south side of the stadium).  Lot 8 has general parking it's only one lot away.

I'll be the good looking guy with the USF hat on :-)

There are "rumors" that he got a lap-band installed in the off season, he mysteriously was in the Hospital for a day or two for "routine checkups", but he has noticeably lost some weight.

If he did... best of luck to him, that's awesome.  My buddy got one and dropped like 100 pounds in 6 months or so.  They work.

I've always wondered how he hasn't had a massive heart attack yet, being in his line of work.  I hope that if it's true that it works out.

i'm guessing his problem is more thyroid related as his familly (wife, son, daughter) all are healthy looking, hell his daughter even has a little cuteness to her.

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
