Kansas Senator wants a law requires KU and KSU to play Wichita State

Kansas Primary

I would vote for Kansas Senator Michael O’Donnell if I lived in Kansas.

Why?

Because he wants to pass a law that requires Kansas and Kansas State to play Wichita State at least once a year in college hoops.

Seriously.

A Wichita resident, O’Donnell initially proposed the bill to include only Kansas and Wichita State, cutting state funding for the universities if they refused to play each other. But since he didn’t want it to seem punitive — and because I guess he wanted support from the good folks of Manhattan, KS — he eliminated the funding cuts and added the Wildcats.

Personally, I think O’Donnell needs to try to get a law on the books that requires an annual home-and-home between Kansas and Missouri, but that’s just me.
