The Journal-World filed a kansas Open Records Act request seeking more information about the Adidas payments, but kansas Athletics has refused to answer, twice saying personnel weren’t available to help with the open records request before coming clean Monday and simply denying the request. An attorney for ku cited a provision of the open records act that gives public entities the option to withhold the release of notes, preliminary drafts, research data in the process of analysis, unfunded grant proposals, memoranda, recommendations or “other records in which opinions are expressed or policies or actions are proposed.”

So, anyone who thought the leadership at ku — specifically Chancellor Douglas Girod and Athletic Director Jeff Long — might stand up to the shoe company that put such a negative spotlight on its basketball program should think again. Given how bad the optics of taking the Adidas money are, the only conclusion is that ku must really need it.

The fraud trial exposed a money-driven cesspool into which many college basketball programs, including ku, willingly dived. Sadly, it appears ku has decided its best bet is to just keep swimming.
