    An independent investigation has uncovered improper ticket sales inside the Kansas athletic department that are worth at least $1 million, but the final price tag could bring the total closer to $3 million.

    A Wichita law firm hired by the University of Kansas showed that five staffers, a prominent consulting group and high-profile alum, whose son still plays basketball for the Jayhawks, collaborated to sell at least 17,609 men's basketball tickets, 2,181 football tickets and several parking passes and other passes for personal use during the last five years.

    i've read articles about those Pump brothers over the last couple years, they seem weirdly connected and uber-shady operators.

    The schadenfreude generated by Kansas (and OU) makes me feel no less depressed about the Buffs.

    Are you going to predict a win in Lawrence, too?

    not today. but, i'd like to think that having Boyle in the locker-room and sidelines having been there, done that might take some of the "aura" off Allen....so, we don't get down 19 in the first ten minutes as we've done some in the past. maybe make us a little more competitive and mentally in the game. sound good?
