Texas is headed back to Lawrence for the first time since Nov. 13, 2004, and that means it's time to revisit Mark Mangino's famed rant after Kansas lost that day to Longhorns, 27-23, in a game filled with controversy.
Mangino went off on officials for an offensive pass interference call on Charles Gordon that forced the Jayhawks to punt. Had the flag not been thrown, Kansas, which was leading, 23-20, would have run out the clock and Texas' hopes for a berth in a Bowl Championship Series game would have been dashed.
Mangino's tirade cost him $5,000, but the coach said it was all planned.
"It was to save the team. I knew I was going to get criticism for it and take some bullets, but Kansas hadn’t had a winning program for many years, we were trying to get it on its feet, we were getting close but just couldn’t get it over the hump. So I took a bullet for it."
