If the phone line is busy . . .

Wednesday was the eighth day on the job for Kirk Schulz as Kansas State University’s new president.

How time flies when you’re busy dealing with the controversy over the contract of ex-KSU football coach Ron Prince and an audit released last week by the Kansas Board of Regents that revealed financial irregularities at K-State.

Schulz spent part of Wednesday speaking at the luncheon meeting of the Agri-Business Council of Wichita at the Hilton Wichita Airport.

“I hope my second week is nothing like my first week,” he said. “I’ve talked more to the media in the last 10 days than I have total in my first four years.”
