Sunflower State Update: Kansas St. Gets New Videoboards; KU May Remove Track
Published June 19, 2014
ROCK, CHALK...: Univ. of Kansas AD Sheahon Zenger on Tuesday confirmed that he and his staff are "in the process of looking into taking out the track" that surrounds the field at Memorial Stadium. Zenger: "The staff has done a great job of researching what we could do affordably and within reason as an intermediary step to our greater renovation project, and I want to make sure that [KU football coach Charlie Weis] thinks whatever we do is advantageous to the program." In Lawrence, Matt Tait noted if the school decides to move forward with removing the track, "doing so quickly could lead to getting it out of there in time for the beginning of the upcoming season" (LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD, 6/18).
