He started his career at KU two years after I left.. He has certainly earned this award and his voice will be missed.

I will miss him. I wish KU could talk Kevin Harlan into coming home

I agree. But, Harlan is probably making way to much $$$$$$$$$ for the KU Athletic Dept. to pay. But, I would really love to hear Harlan broadcasting Jayhawks Football and Men's Basketball games.

Hopefully the team can send Bob out in style with a national title.

I think it's time for new blood. Have there been any hints as to who they might replace Bob with?
