This brings to mind the joke about Mangino recruiting in KC.
In all seriousness, he needs to do something about his weight. I am 6'1 and a year ago was tipping the scales at 297. I was sitting at an All-U-can eat buffet one night on a business trip and realized that I was one of the smaller people there. Figured it was time to do something and I'm glad I did.
Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
Quite frankly I DO consider being 5-10 and 450 lbs an alarming health condition.
It's more than that. The dude is absolutely huge. I don't make fun of people about their weight, and I don't like to criticize people about it either. But the fact is the guy is absolutely massive and needs to take steps to get healthy. If the guy loses 2 bills he's STILL 5'10" 250 which is STILL probably not a healthy weight.
The guy can coach 'em up but he really needs to get the other aspects of his life under control.
Close friends and family members have been concerned for years that Mangino's weight might one day pose a health concern. He is substantially overweight, and Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins has talked with him about considering gastric bypass surgery similar to what Perkins underwent in 2002.
What's all this overweight talk. He's just right.
(can someone post a link to gastric bypass surgery, complete with pictures etc?)
