you'd think that guys would play a little tougher defense in the NBA Summer League. They have contracts on the line and with 10 fouls you can afford to play aggressive D without the risk of fouling out.

Hey, you!! Sports guys!! Guess what?? I'T IS FOOTBALL SEASON !! (Almost)!!

You know....."FOOTBALL! That little oblong sphere with points on the end that guys carry up and down the field to make a score. FOOTBALL! Where you actually kick the ball to make extra points??

The NBA finished its 5 year long season weeks ago! Yo....ya hear??

People ask what is wrong with the KU football program. Maybe it is because the local newspaper cannot get off the over and done past season of "basketball"??

It is FOOTBALL SEASON!! We wanna touchdown!!

What channel can I watch the football games on right now, since it is football season and everything? What day and time is the next KU football game? Oh, what's that? It's not for another month and a half? Oh, I guess I'll keep watching NBA Summer League and former KU players until KU football actually kicks off - 8 weeks from now... It was a nice try though.

I said "almost"/

They are discussing the upcoming football season in Stillwater, Norman, Austin ,Waco, you get the picture. When do we get the picture? Or any other thing than the failed glory of the last season's basketball team full of "one year wonders" who flopped again. And left.

But really what is there to talk about regarding football at this point in the year that hasn't already been said? There's only so many ways you can spin how Cozart isn't afraid of his new starting QB role, or that the team has faith in him, or that the defense is looking better all the time, or how the new and improved offense is going to light up the scoreboard... Did I get them all? We as KU football fans have had our hopes inflated too high the last several seasons only to be brought crashing back down to reality 2 games into the season, and thus have collectively taken a wait-and-see approach to the football season.

Don't get me wrong, basketball articles this time of year are a joke for the most part as well. And if you classify our basketball team as failures, then I'd hate to see how you regard our football team.
