Could a 5-way tie for 1st place be on the horizon in the Big 12?

As I told my daughter, I bet that the NCAA will accept Silvia's appeal the day after the streak ends.

Jayhawks fall out of AP top 10 for first time this season

IMO, we should have put in the last 5 minutes. If we still lost and he's eventually declared ineligible, then what did we penalized - a game we lost? But if Silvio played and we won, UK and it's fans would have screamed so loud that the NCAA would have had to make an eligibility determination by now.

Benton Smith: Ochai Agbaji invigorating lineup as KU recalibrates on the fly

We would be a better team with Dok... if we had two more guards that can make a 3-pointer.

Game day: No. 1 Kansas basketball vs. South Dakota

I agree with the starting lineup above, just to keep some feelings from being hurt. However, I'd like to see Dotson, Vick and D Lawson sit most the game and get a rest. Let Moore, KJ and McCormack get the minutes instead. It might help Grimes get out of his funk knowing that he is the primary scorer too.

D.J. Eliot signed 3-year, $1.85M term sheet to become KU's defensive coordinator

Benton, can you get us a list of all the coaches from last year and new hires with their positions. I'd also like to see your thoughts on where last year's coaches might end up. Like maybe Bowen being ST coach, Sendish as safeties coach etc.

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.
