Column: Weis’ claims of his deepest KU roster up for debate

Charlie Weis gave those who cringe their way through his press conferences a break this time at the annual Big 12 media days, a year after his steamy remarks put him at the bottom of a pile of criticism. Weis did, however, make two statements off-podium in Dallas that merit scrutiny. Column by Tom Keegan

Column: Kansas basketball should boast better depth, intensity

Every summer, watching a camp game is all that’s necessary to trigger a debate as to whether this year’s Kansas University basketball team will outdo last year’s. For a better read on the basketball team’s 2014-2015, consider the head coach’s words. Column by Tom Keegan

Column: Ben Heeney the face of KU football

The psyche of a Kansas University football fan in recent years has slipped from euphoria to frustration to anger to the dangerous place it now resides: apathy. By Tom Keegan

Column: Sixers had guts to draft Embiid third

In my book, Sam Hinkie, general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, came to the plate for Thursday’s NBA draft with an 0-2 count. But man, what a two-strike hitter this Hinkie guy is. He showed that underneath his mound of statistical printouts and inside the cone of silence lies a man with a burglar’s guts. Column by Tom Keegan

Column: NBA mock drafts a mockery; Embiid still No. 1

Trace the origin of most mock drafts to lies and misdirection plays. So instead of looking at NBA mock drafts to try to figure out what your favorite lottery team will do Thursday night, just ask yourself what you would do by ranking 1 through 14 the prospects available for this draft. In so doing, you’ll probably get closer to draft results than the mocks constructed by those who have NBA sources. Column by Tom Keegan

Column: KU newcomer Graham positive at point guard

In some ways, the less you notice a point guard, the better he’s playing. It can mean he’s keeping the ball moving, getting it into the right hands at the right time, not monopolizing it. I didn’t hear much about freshman point guard Devonté Graham’s play in last week’s Bill Self Camp exhibition game featuring past and present Kansas University basketball players, so I decided to take in the camp game Wednesday.

Column: Pierson should play RB, not WR

The closer it gets to college football season, the more columnist Tom Keegan thinks about ways to get the ball in the hands of Tony Pierson more often.

Column: Wind woes bend, don't break Woodland at Open

Gary Woodland yanked his tee shot left, deep into the waste area that hugs the fairways at Pinehurst No. 2, up against a fence, in among the pine trees. From there, Woodland’s round went backward. Literally. Column by Tom Keegan
