Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin's journey continued Saturday with a trip to Lawrence, scene of the Kansas State-Kansas game.
The Wildcats brushed aside the Jayhawks, 31-10, leaving Charlie Weis with a two-year record of 4-20. That's one victory shy of Turner Gill's 5-19 two-year mark that led to his firing in 2011. But Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger announced Sunday that Weis wasn't going anywhere — except recruiting.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: Kansas will be talking about that trip to the 2008 Orange Bowl 50 years from now. The Jayhawks, under the direction of Mark Manginio, not only earned a trip to a Bowl Championship Series game, they won it, defeating Virginia Tech, 24-21.
Firing Mangino, obviously, was a big mistake.
The good news for Kansas fans is that basketball season has started.
