Documents reveal details about David Beaty's firing at Kansas
According to the Star, Long asked another member of Kansas’ athletic department whether Beaty was having an extramarital affair. The Star also reported the following about alleged remarks Long made: “Baty also testified that he heard Long make inappropriate and inflammatory sexual remarks about an elderly female donor to whom Long was prepared to make 'a generous ask' financially.

He became such a better offensive player, but he’s a guy that didn’t shoot it statistically great."

I’d be the first to argue that Oasis dropped the ball after the millennium, but Noel Gallagher has disowned the wrong child. Oasis’s fourth is categorically not a shit album.
