Sure it is down since then. Hence the term "record".
The article I read stated that the drop in enrollment is mostly because of less kids in Kansas high schools. Most likely because of the drop in certain places in the country with having children.
Lower income areas of the country are seeing booms in population. Not sure this is the case in Kansas. The population is pretty steady. Never rising and falling very much.
Setting the record for most football and basketball victories by an NCAA Division 1 program in 2008 probably helped set the enrollment record.
But when you reach that high there really isn't anywhere to go but down.
I guess Turner Gill is a hero, then. Without him, the school might have exploded.
