A CPA in the KC area, I've lived in KC my whole life and bleed Royal Blue. Long for a return to the glory days. The past 10 years have been pretty tough, but I'm thinking we're on our way.

with the realization that the EMAW set has taken the tack that "if we're going down, we're going to take KU with us", I would encourage all of our loyal RCT readers to find your legislator here and let them know that, should it come to it, keeping these two schools together so that both end up as mid-majors makes absolutely no sense in the long run for the state of Kansas overall. obviously, the preference would be for the Big XII to stay intact, but if that ends up not being possible, it is imperative that KU be allowed the opportunity to pursue a BCS/megaconference invitation should it be offered.
