  • @BShark No, I don’t do twitter.



  • @jayballer73 The one issue that I remember reading about was that MM said some things that crossed the line as far as race goes. If the comments were what I remember…they are not acceptable in today’s world. I hope I am remembering correctly when I make this statement.



  • @Hawk8086 yeah, that definitely happened. Mangino can coach football but he’s not really a good dude. He also totally lost the team in 2008-09.

    Honest question for Mangino supporters

    If a KU recruit behaved the way that Mangino did:

    • yelling at an officiating crew while a spectator at a sporting event
    • public, profanity laced tirades
    • allegations that he mistreated those around him

    would you want KU to continue recruiting that student athlete? If not, why is that acceptable behavior from a coach?

    here is the question to you. - -how many pro Coach’s yell at officials at their sporting event? Ypu think these guys aren’t going to be around Coach’s that yell have tantrums/ tirades during games ? if these kids /parents think this isn’t going to happen then they need to keep their kids sheltered - -it’s life -it happens every day. - when these kids get to pro if they are that fortunate the way Magino acted is going to seem like being on a kindergarden level compared to some of these pro Coach’s. What? - mama and dadd - If these guys and or parents are so thin skinned to this type of enviroment then I truly feel sorry for them -it’s going to happen you can take that to the bank going to yank the kid off the NFL roster because the coach curses throws tirades during games? -If your Naïve enough to think Coach’s don’t use profanity - then your living under a rock - you don’t think NFL Coach’s don’t get physical? - mercy what world you live it? - -Football it’s self is a physical game very physical - -so if your so concerned about a Coach being physical with your kid - then they don’t need to be in football period. - -Hell yes I would want them to keep recruiting him- of course then again my boy hasn’t been pampered, had that golden spoon all his life either - these things happen Believe that to keep recruiting them



  • @jayballer73 I don’t think he even remotely is talking about that. Mangino went after officials at his sons high school fb game.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 High School game College game - - Pro game - - it happens



  • Wow. The other day someone was posting about the fighting here and then they come unglued over @justanotherfan 's good question.



  • @jayballer73

    As @Crimsonorblue22 said, I wasn’t referencing Mangino yelling while coaching a KU game. He was at his son’s HS football game and went after the high school officiating crew. KU punished him internally for that, so I can’t honestly say what happened to him as a result. How would you feel if you read that a KU recruit was screaming at officials at their cousin’s junior high football game from the sidelines, to the point where they had to be restrained?

    I specifically said spectator to make it clear that it wasn’t while coaching.

    The public, profanity laced tirades also did not happen while coaching. These happened off the field as well - once to a parking attendant, once to another person in Lawrence and at least one other time on campus. Again, how would you feel if a report surfaced that a KU recruit had been seen screaming and cursing at a parking attendant?

    Mangino’s management habits are well known. Again, how would you feel if you found out that a KU recruit was known to be a jerk to the people around him?

    And that’s just the stuff we know about that happened off the field.

    These are specific to things that happened OFF THE FIELD. These incidents are pretty well known around the KU program, and were a large reason why, despite his on field success, Mangino had very few supporters among the athletic department, administration and big donors. Mangino is probably the most successful coach in the history of KU football, but when he was pushed out, there wasn’t anyone in power trying to save him. That’s telling.



  • @wissox YA WOW - -now you see how it really looks huh? lmao - -I AM NOT pointing at anyone specific on here with this - -let me tell you more slowly I am not in a debate with anyone specific here but thanks for trying to stir the pot - -your comment is greatly appreciated. - This is such a broad topic/conversation - you see wissox this is conversation heated about the person - - - -I appreciate what they are sayin. - Just so happens I have a very strong opinion about this - but not pissed at anyone here they have their opinions and make very valid points - -thanks again. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @justanotherfan Thanks for your input - - appreciated.



  • Oh my gosh, the idea of a football coach being a “jerk.” I mean, what is the world coming too? It the pussification of America. Thank you to a portion of America. Bunch of pansies. Victim mentality. Snowflakes. Good thing they don’t see Marine corp training.



  • @HighEliteMajor are you ok w/a parent going off on refs at a high school game?



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Truthfully, it depends. Generally, I’m fine with barking or a comment here and there. “Going off” … that would be for a major, major deal in my opinion. To the general point, I don’t support Mangino when he went off on an official at at HS game. As the KU coach, he should have considered time, place, and his position. But that doesn’t color my opinion that his ouster was nothing more than a witch hunt. I have mentioned this before, but I spoke directly to a former KU player who was close with the program, at the time of his firing, who used that exact term. Lots of info that he had.



  • @HighEliteMajor - - That’s the bottom line - they could use any reason you want - no one really knows for sure but the administration & officals. - -But ya bottom line that’s all it mounted to WITCH HUNT



  • Perkins wanted Mangino gone and got it done. But it’s pretty telling that Mangino isn’t a head coach somewhere else.



  • You said, “If your Naïve enough to think Coach’s don’t use profanity - then your living under a rock - you don’t think NFL Coach’s don’t get physical? - mercy what world you live it?”

    That’s stirring the pot sir. It’s just ironic to me since your post from a few days ago.

    Again thanks for your input. -Are you here just to argue with yourself? - see I’m not doing it. - You’ve made your point , I have no problem with that but I’m not going to keep going back and forth I move along , it’s pointless to just keep going back and forth to see who has the last word. Your point has been made I appreciate it and time to move to a new subject. - -Have a great day. - -oh one side note though – - - -please don’t call me sir - -that’s so formal. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    I’ll fix it so it’s not so offensive to the teacher in ya! @wissox 😆

    If you’re naive enough to think coaches don’t use profanity, then you are living under a rock! You don’t think NFL coaches get physical?!? Mercy, what world are you living in?



  • @dylans

    Even more telling, compare Mangino to Mike Leach. Leach and Mangino were fired just weeks apart in December 2009.

    Leach and Mangino were fired at roughly the same time for somewhat similar incidents. Leach got a studio job, then was back as a head coach two seasons later. Mangino missed four seasons, then was hired as an assistant at a non FBS school. He moved up to being an assistant at an FBS school the next year, but lasted only a season and a half.

    Pretty telling that while Mangino claims he has lots of former players and staff that support him, no one has gone to bat for him to get him a job.



  • @dylans Haha! You get an A-.



  • @wissox and a⭐️



  • When he’s not chasing down top level recruits, he’s pitching potential ADs…

    “I saw firsthand why Bill Self is such a great recruiter because, I’ll be candid, he recruited me here, and I’m proud of that and that meant a lot to me,” Long explained.
