Essentially Flyertalk / Fantasy tatoo
« on: March 31, 2010, 09:50:54 PM »
If you didn't have to worry about future jobs, family etc., what tatoo(s) would you get?

I would get a picture of the Kansas state capital dome and the Ad aspera indian on my right pectoral.

Kansas State Football / UpperTrampStamp Hawks thread
« on: March 29, 2010, 02:05:45 PM »
Setting aside a thread to relay updates from the defending last place team in the North.  Just weigh in on news from ku's spring practice. 

Specifically, would love to hear news from ku fans on the board.  Now that the second string that threatened to win the national championship is actually first string, can we expect a domination by Gill's logos?

Read in the KC Star the following, please free to add any other news.

1.  It is true, no last names on jersey, just the upper tramp stamp logo;
2.  It is true, no cussin'
3.  He has required the team to memorize a catchy mantra with each letter in the word "believe" standing for a word which is then chanted in the huddle.  Lame Brady McCollugh could not publish what it was because he is an idiot;
4.  That thug from Blinn was booted.  Gill is cleaning up the rogue outfit Mangino had running;
5.  If you want to watch Gill's practices, head to the parking garage and take a look;
6.  Gill is not looking really for ability at QB as much as body language.  Kale Pick's body language says "I cannt believe I have a division 1 scholarship"; and
7.  No word on whether Chuck Long will be charged over the events at his last stop.

That's it for now.  Beems and others, give us some scoop!

Kansas State Basketball / Worst $12 million ever spent?
« on: March 27, 2010, 11:25:44 AM »
Lew = $4million
Seff = $3 million
Mangino = $2 million plus $3 million buyout.

And the best they got was a humiliating loss to UNI in the Sweet 16 to go with a total embarassment for men's FB?

Perkins Breaking News

But that’s a paltry sum compared with what Perkins received in 2009 — $4.4 million.

Perkins’ pay is the equivalent of $85,000 a week — about 10 KU students’ average yearly tuition payments. What’s more, $4.4 million appears to place Perkins far beyond that of any athletic director in the nation.

“It’s utterly outrageous,” said Andrew Zimbalist, a sports economist at Smith College in Massachusetts. “I can’t believe he’s worth that kind of compensation in the marketplace. It strikes me as a hideous compensation level.”

On Friday, Perkins made no apology for his compensation.

“It is what it is,” he said. “It was all based on when I got hired, negotiated from day one. … It was all part of the deal of me leaving Connecticut to come here.”

Perkins, who has seen the athletic budget double to $55 million since 2003, also pointed to Kansas’ success.

“Hopefully, people will accept that we’re working hard to try to keep Kansas competitive in one of the most, if not the most, competitive conferences in the country,” he said.

A university spokeswoman also defended Perkins’ 2009 compensation, saying it was inflated that year because of a special retention bonus negotiated earlier. This year his pay will revert to about $900,000, said KU spokeswoman Lynn Bretz.

That would still put Perkins near the top pay of other athletic directors.

“During Perkins’ now almost seven years, Kansas Athletics has seen unparalleled fundraising, an unparalleled period of renovation and construction of facilities, a national basketball championship, back-to-back bowl victories, nationally competitive student-athletes both on the field or court and in the classroom, and improved student-athlete graduation rates,” Bretz said.

“All of these are measures of success by any standard.”

The Kansas City Star discovered Perkins’ compensation this week while analyzing salary data for about 150,000 Kansas and Missouri public employees. The Kansas Department of Administration, which handles payroll for state employees, provided the salary information to the newspaper in response to an open-records request.

Just $194,000 of Perkins’ $4,485,274.66 income in 2009 came from “state funds,” paid by taxpayers. Bretz said the bulk of it came from Kansas Athletics Inc., a nonprofit organization that promotes Kansas athletics. Most of its employees are not on university payrolls.

Jim Marchiony, associate athletic director at Kansas Athletics, said the more than $4 million required for Perkins’ compensation package in 2009 came from general Kansas Athletics revenue, including supporters’ donations, conference revenue, student fees and other sources. No specific fundraising effort was used to raise money for Perkins’ bonuses, he said.

When he was KU’s chancellor, Robert Hemenway negotiated Perkins’ contracts, Bretz said. Hemenway wanted to keep the athletic director as a state employee, with his compensation publicly disclosed through the state system, as a way for the university to maintain control over the athletic department. It also was more transparent, Bretz said.

Hemenway could not be reached for comment on Friday.

In an interview last year with Bloomberg News, Hemenway said he conducted salary comparisons and reviewed non-salary arrangements at other schools, spoke with Big 12 commissioners and drew on his own experiences on various college athletics committees. He concluded, he said, that Perkins needed to be paid at or near the top of all athletic directors in the U.S.

Kansas State Basketball / Butler is AWESOME
« on: March 26, 2010, 09:33:23 PM »
I know he is young but he is really establishing an advanced knowledge of the strike zone.  I think his power numbers will come with time.  Right now though he is one of the top 3 line drive hitters in the league.  If we can improve his glove we might be talking a perennial ALL Star!

Love ya Billy!

Essentially Flyertalk / KC Star - renewal
« on: February 09, 2010, 09:12:18 AM »
So my Star subscription has expired and they are calling (constantly) to renew.  I haven't even decided if I should or not.  On the one hand it is the local paper and they have really been sucking up to KSU lately but still, the hiring of Kellis makes me furious.

I willl yield to the board will.  What should I do?

Kansas State Football / Leber
« on: January 24, 2010, 09:17:25 PM »
Just got screwed on a bad, bad PI call.  He might earn some share of the blame if Vikings lose this thing.  It was uncatchable AND their feet just got tangled up.

refs want to make sure they get involved though.  Can't let the teams decide it.
