Anybody who picked the Kansas University football team to finish last in the Big 12 has not been given a reason to turn the pencil upside down and put the eraser to work. By Tom Keegan

Column: Weis, Jayhawks survive by thriving late

That jolt you felt Saturday was Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis bouncing off the ropes with a timely 24-10 victory against Central Michigan at Memorial Stadium. By Tom Keegan

Column: Juco quick fix is neither

This was supposed to be the year that it all came together at Kansas University for third-year football coach Charlie Weis, who puts in such long hours on the job he sometimes sleeps in his office. By Tom Keegan

Column: Wide receivers aren’t problem for KU

It doesn’t really matter why things keep going awry, just that they do. And when bad things keep happening to the same team, year after year, the problem isn’t what happens, it’s why it keeps happening. By Tom Keegan

Column: Kansas seems cursed at QB

Based on how raw Montell Cozart looked Saturday in a 41-3 loss to Duke, next season’s opener against South Dakota State could mean the seventh season in a row with a new starting quarterback. By Tom Keegan

Column: Make or break — CMU game could seal Weis’ fate

It’s beginning to feel as if Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis’ make-or-break season has been downsized to a make-or-break game, at 2:30 p.m. Saturday against Central Michigan at Memorial Stadium. By Tom Keegan

Column: Cozart off to 'good start'

Column: Lesson from ’10 Kansas football — You have to finish

One game into Charlie Weis’ third year as the replacement for Turner Gill, KU stands in a similar spot as it did in 2010, coming off a disappointing game vs. an FCS opponent, trying to figure out a way to defeat a heavily favored ACC team, this time Duke. By Tom Keegan

Column: Mann, Avery provide hope

Through no fault of De'Andre Mann’s, Kansas had to settle for a 34-28 victory against an athletically inferior Southeast Missouri State football team that went 3-9 in the FCS Ohio Valley Conference a year ago. By Tom Keegan

Column: KU football Short an important piece

Optimism for the 2014 Kansas University football team lasted all of one wildly entertaining quarter, 15 minutes of game clock. And then the recent past spilled into the present. By the end of Saturday night’s 34-28 victory against Southeast Missouri State, a question that too often bubbles to the surface of the minds of those in attendance for season openers could be asked with at least a hint of credibility: Will this football team win another game this season?

Column: Kansas needs to (pick your verb) SEMO

If the Jayhawks do in fact ravage Southeast Missouri State tonight, the countdown toward bowl-eligibility can start without everybody in sight laughing. By Tom Keegan

Column: Here’s hoping ’14 not like ’86 for KU, KSU football

It’s not too big of a stretch to think that for the first time in more than a quarter-century, the Big 12’s two Kansas schools could be in the market at the same time for a football coach after this season. By Tom Keegan

Column: Prepare for liftoff — Cozart-to-Pierson has a nice ring

Here’s hoping Kansas University football's first play of the season will carry symbolism and represent the change from a stale offense weighed down by too many slow-developing plays. Here’s hoping it’s a bubble screen from Montell Cozart to Tony Pierson, the fastest, most exciting player to watch with the ball in his hands. By Tom Keegan

Column: Kansas football needs blowout

Kansas needs to dominate Southeast Missouri State from the opening series and never let up. By Tom Keegan
