Former Jayhawk Randle in trouble again


Kansas University defensive back Jerome Kemp, 22, and former KU running back John Randle, 21, were involved in a fight with each other shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday in an alley in the 1000 block of Kentucky Street, according to a police report released Monday.

Randle allegedly slapped a 19-year-old woman, an acquaintance of both men, who tried to step in and break up the fight. Randle was given a citation for disorderly conduct and battery. Kemp was not cited.

Randle was kicked off the football team last year after repeated run-ins with police.

If there was any question: No, he's not returning to the team. Not now, for sure.

He clearly has a booze problem. What a waste of a future.

I have NO respect for him now. I also have MORE respect for Mangino today than ever before. He tried so hard to keep this kid going down the "straight and narrow" but it was just something he couldn't handle.

I wonder if he was ever going to be allowed back this year anyway? Oh well... I just hope he grows up someday.

How can you have respect for Mangino? He poured fuel on the fire when he didn't discipline him properly the first time he hit a woman.

He didn't discipline him effectively when he stole the beer while underage.

He didn't take care of business when he beat up the Granada owner who was trying to stop him from urinating on the side of his building.

He didn't handle it properly when he beat up someone outside of Brothers.

What did he do? He kept him on scholarship and told him not to tranfer because he would let him back on. It is sad, if he had taken care of it the first time, it might have never progressed to this point.

Spare the rod, spoil the child...

You're right, the 5 strikes and you're out, but not out of a scholarship is a great policy. I hope Mangino continues this tough discipline.

If he wasn't coming back, why did they let him stay on scholarship? They didn't do that for other players on the team.
