Some interesting tidbits. And on an OT note, as it actually at least still relates to the TCJ, is it just me or is Austin Meek having to fill the Jayhawk beat as well? I'm assuming TCJ is doing this only in the summer which is smart and two-fold: They save money by not paying a salary for 3-4 months, and it's manageable because the summer's so slow. I just hope Meek got some sort of compensation in this interim and for having to double dip, and to have to touch that school with a 10 foot pole.
