Is it too late to get back on that KU bandwagon? Please forgive me for giving up on them when they lost to Abilene Tech last week. I don't know what got into me. It could have been the weather or maybe some force from outer space made me think like that. Maybe it was the pills I took for my hurt foot! I don't know, but they have made my football forecasting abilities look bad to the educated and uneducated world of sports watchers.
Today, KU beat the #15 ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 28-25 at Memorial Stadium. They put in a new quarterback and went back to the old offense that made them famous in the past and played like they were suppose to. The last time KU beat a ranked team at home was in the early 1980s when they beat OU. I was going to that game but decided to listen to one our general council meetings and I kicked myself for weeks after for missing that upset.
Who do I have to petition to get back on the band-wagon? It sure ain't Lew Perkins, he left on the same midnight express Mangino took, and he had a suitcase filled to the brim with $2 million in severance pay (for you math people out there, that is $ 5,400 a day or so for doing absolutely nothing for the next year). I guess the only thing to do is apologize to my readers for making a mistake so there it is - I'm officially back on the KU bandwagon!
