Mangino, Perkins open NASDAQ

KU head football coach Mark Mangino and athletic director Lew Perkins opened the NASDAQ Monday, along with representatives from the Insight Bowl and the University of Minnesota

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.

Coach Mangino looks like he'd rather be on the practice fields preparing the team to whip some a$$.

Hey coach, you look pretty good. I hope your health continues on a fine even level. We worried about you a little last year!

Geez, it still drops even after Mangino rings the bell? I'm putting my money under my mattress.

Is there any talk about the game being shown on a channel other than the NFL Network? I think I would loose my mind as a season ticket holder. Pay for every game and you cannot even watch the bowl game? The the heck is that?
