I like it! The strong ability to turn the stone to see the “flip side” of something is something that takes practice. Great work, 'bate! Each one made me think.
As usual, very entertaining … I don’t have to pay you for this service, do I?
I will just say this about that. If there was money thrown at the athletes in the 70’s above and beyond housing/tuition/meals top athletes I was very close to,some I roomed with at Jayhawk Towers or on the road on road trips NEVER mentioned anything extra to this day. I still believe KU runs a clean program-but has OUTSTANDING support for bball- and in my day football was also on top (two bowl games). Dominating Big 8 swim and track teams-including WORLD CLASS Track Athletes didn’t even get a nod.
God, how I hope you are right.
As usual, its on the house.
