Wichita Mayor Carlos Mayans’ push to bring back Wichita State University football is the political equivalent of a Hail Mary pass: It generates some excitement and raises hopes but likely isn’t going to put points on the scoreboard.
WSU football could make sense under the right circumstances, but it’s also a risky venture — and WSU president Donald Beggs is right to be wary of it.
And talk about bad timing: It seems odd that the mayor is working so hard to convince WSU to add a program it doesn’t want at the same time Wichita is in danger of losing the Wranglers baseball team.
Where is the City Council leadership on that issue?
