KU gets OK to ban handguns from football, men’s basketball games; purses will also be banned

The University of Kansas has received formal approval to ban guns from games at Allen Fieldhouse and Memorial Stadium. Metal detectors and guards would be put in place for men’s basketball and football games, primarily, but also to any other sporting event expected to draw more than 5,000 to the facilities, under a proposal approved Wednesday morning by the Kansas Board of Regents governance committee.

A lot of University of Kansas men's basketball fans are walking a little farther and paying a little more to reach Allen Fieldhouse this season, prompted by ongoing construction and increasing demand for parking. The shuttle bus from park-and-ride lots to Allen Fieldhouse is no longer free, and it drops off riders farther away than previous years. Also, some Williams Fund donors' assigned lots are now farther away.

What if Kansas paid its basketball players? It already does, sort of

If you want to be a Kansas basketball player, 82 is an important number to know. It’s how many games are in an NBA season. It’s also how many times more money KU coach Bill Self made than his 13 men’s basketball scholarship athletes last year. This may seem unbelievable, but it’s true: Self earned more than $3.9 million, while the 13 players on scholarship took home $47,372 combined. The unbelievable part is that the players were paid at all.
