Mangino livid about penalty on Gordon

Coach: "It's called BCS. Keep that in mind"

After Saturday's 27-23 loss to Texas, Kansas University coach Mark Mangino wanted to talk about one specific play. Not Vince Young's 22-yard scamper on fourth-and-18 that kept the Longhorns' final drive alive. Not Young's 22-yard touchdown pass to Tony Jeffery with 11 seconds left that gave Texas the victory. No, Mangino wanted to discuss the offensive pass interference call on Charles Gordon that negated a first down that would have kept KU's final drive alive and possibly kept the Longhorns from getting back on the field for the game-winning score.
