  • Post your Mangino story

    So I was talking to a co-worker today that was tied in with the Big 12 referees in a prior life. We got to talking about Mangino and his relationship with the refs.

    Apparently, when you're a referee, you meet with the home coach beforehand to make sure there aren't any issues they should be aware of (bad blood between teams, etc). My co-worker said that he heard from multiple referees (on separate occasions) that when they met with Mangino before the game, he'd be butt-ass-naked.

    Needless to say, I tried my best to scrape this mental image from my mind. Since I couldn't, I decided to do the next best thing and share it with you.

    I'm beginning to think that Gordon's offensive pass interference was retaliation for Mangino giving the ref 'the goat' before the game.

    I thought I'd heard this before somewhere.

      Mangino also wiped his ass with bathtowels because his t-rex arms couldn't reach. The managers then had to deal with previously mentioned towels. :locust

        I guess we should make this a full blown, 'post your Mangino story' thread.

          I once saw Mangino eat a billy goat in one bite. To be fair, that goat did look fucking delicious.

            Seriously, did the guy have lap-band surgery or not?

                [/quote]Yes he had it. He quickly had it removed. If you ask any GI doc one of the most important aspects of lap band surgery having success is to have 110% buy in by the patient. It requires a MAJOR life change that will reverse years of eating habits immediately. It can cause depression and even has led to multiple suicides. You have to think in one day you go from eating an entire jumbo plate size of food to eating something no bigger than your fist. If you eat more than that....You vomit.

                Mangino was forced into Lap Band and it didn't take. He had it reversed. Don't you remember him being "hospitalized" for personal reasons 1 year ago? That was his removal.

                EDIT: Oh and welcome 007. Glad you made it over to WtW.

                  I liked MM as much as anyone and appreciate what he did for the FB program, but stuff like I certainly won't miss hearing about. And I have to think that some of this stuff didn't do much to gain respect from some of his players.

                  TG has accomplished a thing yet, but I certainly appreciate the different attitude.

                      If this is true it is one of the most disgusting things I've ever heard.

                        Anybody have "the story" on what the fuck happened last year? Maybe it requires its own thread? I've heard various bits and pieces. TR hurt. Abuse. Bear walks on hot turf, etc., but it sure seemed like something imploded as I never saw 7 losses in a row coming.......

                          My mangino story:

                          I traveled to Miami to watch my university play in the first Orange Bowl of my lifetime. The weather was crappy. The football was amazing. I honestly didn't think we had a chance to win. I was going for the experience. I think the Virginia Tech fans felt the same way. They greeted us pregame with handshakes and congratulations. It had the feeling of a dominate Kansas Basketball team greeting opposing fans while giving them the look like "enjoy you ass kicking, but have a nice day!"

                          We watched as Talib got us a pick6. We watched an amazing fake punt play that kept the ball in our hands. I watched the team WIN the Orange Bowl. I have never been so proud of my university. It was amazing watching the Oranges being thrown by the players into the stands. KU fans brought it strong. We had half that stadium and now we owned the stadium.

                          The festivities ended and my brother and I were at a loss of what to do. We had done South Beach. We had done everything. I said, "Team hotel." We both ran to the car and drove to the team hotel.

                          There hundreds of KU fans awaited the team. Here they came. Smiles abound. We saw them all. We shook hands. And last but not least here came Coach. He was smiling from ear to ear. Pride was beaming out of him. He took a different route and was walking away from me....My brother still teases me to this day what came out of my mouth. It was like a different person was saying it, "Coach!," I shouted 10 levels to high "COACH!" He made eye contact with me. "I have to shake the hand of the best coach in America!" (ok, I agree it was overboard. I was amped up. Forgive me.) He smiled and thought for a second. He sauntered over to me and shook my hand. I looked him in the eyes and said, "Thank you." He said, "No, thank you."

                          Then he left. We sat and drank beers. The best football night of my lifetime was over. It was incredible.

                            Yeah that is a great story. I remember it almost exactly like you do, except I didn't go to the team hotel because I had to fly back early the next morning. One of my proudest moments as well. But then something happened...

                            ...with most of those same stars on offense, exactly two years later, the team appeared to quit on him and lost 7 in a row. There were inexplicable benchings and lack of information as to our shitty play. The coaches show every week promised to "Fix It" week after week. Our defense regressed tremendously, in part because we promoted someone who was completely in over his head to defensive coordinator. To cap it all off we had some pretty shitty play calling late against our most hated rival and then the same coach tries to explain the shit play by the team for the last two months post game.

                            I will admit that 2005-2008 were some of the greatest years of my football watching life. 2009 was just like pretty much every year in the 1990s except the two bowl years, which was shitty. The difference is we had some of the best talent we'd ever had on offense and still couldn't do shit.

                            Football Jesus he was not.
