Mangino encourages his players to get to the polls


Mangino discusses encouraging the Jayhawks to vote

Nebraska was the main point of focus, but Coach Mark Mangino took some time out this week to encourage the football team to vote.

Those who know KU football coach Mark Mangino know he's not one to devote a whole lot of time to things other than football.

At his weekly press conference this week, however, he spent five minutes talking about how important it was for his student-athletes to vote. You can see that video on the left of this page.

He said he'd encouraged his students to visit their polling places - or vote absentee if they're from out of state - and exercise their constitutional right.

He did say, however, that he wouldn't be encouraging his out-of-state players to be going to vote.

There's a game to prepare for.
