Earning a bid to the Insight Bowl meant a trip to the Big Apple for Mark Mangino and Lew Perkins.
Kansas University’s football coach and athletic director were in New York City Monday morning, ringing the bell to open trading at the NASDAQ Stock Exchange.
They joined Minnesota coach Tim Brewster, UM athletic director Joel Maturi, Insight Bowl President and CEO Rich Fennessy and Insight Bowl Chairman Dave Tilson.
The presence of the athletic bigwigs didn’t seem to help the market. At the close of Monday’s trading, the NASDAQ index fell more than 32 points, or 2.1 percent.
