Matt Tait: Kansas dabbling with stronger crop of coaching candidates this time around

I think we need to give some thanks to Charlie for gutting the football program. I fully believe that if he would have kept all the failing players that TG brought on, then the NCAA would have hit us with about the same amount of scholarship cuts. However I think the cuts would have lasted at least though this year.

With recruiting players, he wasn't much better than Gill. But at least he ran off the irresponsible ones before they could cause sanctions too.

You are right that we should be 4-8 or 5-7. If it wasn't for some stupid play calling, we could have had a chance in the ISU game. But you can't say that Pooka's unavailability in game one cost us that one. A P-5 team's second string should beat them.

David Beaty: Decision to remain KU football coach for final 3 games 'very, very easy'

The two First and Goals with no points were the nails. However, the hammer was the two defensive time outs in the last 70 seconds of the game. We were down 24 points. ISU stopped trying to score and just wanted to run clock out. We get the ball back and then just run out the clock for them. It felt like I was watch a little kid who invited his friend over to play a new video game and finds out his friend is a lot better at it, so he takes controller back right before the game is won so he can be the one to finish it.

KU not retaining football coach David Beaty

The last 70 seconds of the ISU game was uncalled for. Two defensive time outs and down by 24 points - What For???

To me that was very unsportsmanlike.

Jayhawks back on campus, ready to dive into preseason hoops work

Wow, no love for the most experienced PG on the team. IMO, Charlie should be our starter since he's been in the system for a year. That said, starting PG is for Devon to take and Charlie to keep and we'll see as the season goes on.

Kansas Basketball Record Watch 2018-19: Dedric Lawson

UK and Duke have no need to talk about themselves. They let ESPN do it for them. And Matt hasn't said anything that anyone who follows basketball and watches these young men play a couple times can't figure out.

What I want to know is the one with the most career wins and if anyone on the team can beat it.

Nick Reid, James McClinton, Charles Gordon deserving of ultimate KU football honor

Third Team All-American still equates to Top 2% off all D1 football players in the country. So if Top 2% is a low bar, where should the bar be?

New Kansas AD Jeff Long addresses still-defunct KU-MU Border War

Now that the MU leadership that took the to the SEC has either quit or been forced out, I don't mind playing them again. But only once a year per sport and at a neutral location. I wouldn't welcome them to Lawrence and would sure not go there.

But what I really want is for KU to play exhibition games against UCM. Phog Allen coached both schools so we could have the "Phog Allen Cup' or some other item (Doctor's bag) as a trophy. And Mules don't like Tigers anyway. There's also a small but nice memorial display at UCM's football for Dr Allen. It even has his old med bag.

Tom Keegan: Credit 12-1 Orange Bowl team's leading rusher with recruiting assist

"If you are a student-athlete who plays football, you may be able to compete immediately if you meet ANY of the following conditions:
•You are transferring from a Football Bowl Subdivision college to a Football Championship Subdivision college and have at least two seasons of eligibility remaining."

Sounds like he is a senior. If he red-shirted once then that gives him the two years of eligibility to play right away.

Tom Keegan: Next season's Kansas basketball roster deeper, more balanced, greener

What about this:
We could get a local DII team to be our farm team: Washburn, PSU, UCM, ESU. It would just need a coach that would work with and run a team like Self does. Instead of red shirting, send the kids to DII for a year to bulk up and get playing experience. Then if they are ready, we bring them back next year.
