KU women's basketball team handed 94-68 loss by No. 2 Baylor

Rough, but definitely respectable, down just 15 going into the 4th period.

KU women's basketball team nets first win over Kansas State since 2014

There were some lapses, but also some flashes of brilliance, with an 18-point lead at one stage. All in all, a very solid road win in a rivalry game has got to feel pretty good.

Jayhawks drop 69-66 decision at Texas Tech

I find both the loss and the skimpy coverage disappointing. I live several time zones away, and so was up in the middle of the night listening online. Tech was 0-2 in the Big 12 coming into the game. I was more optimistic than maybe I should have been. The ladies are going to win some games. Too bad this wasn't one of them.

Kansas WRs coach Emmett Jones speaks 'truth' when recruiting

We're "probably" not going to land any 4-star recruits, and we're almost certainly not going to end up with any of the 5-star types. But, it wasn't all that long ago when we went 11-1 and won the Orange Bowl with no higher than 3-star guys. I wonder how many turnaround projects ever do bring in the highly recognized talent at the outset. And yet, programs do turn around. My guess is that success stories are not dependent upon the things that show up on paper before the fact.

Shane Jackson: Time for KU women's basketball to prove it can win in Big 12

I believe we'll see significantly more wins this year than last, and the losses will be more competitive as well. It's going to be a fun ride!

Jayhawks crush Catamounts by 41 behind dominating defense

Another impressive win, Jayhawks, Nice way to close out the year.

Don't know how many people catch the radio game calls, but Jimmy Chavez and David Lawrence do a super job.

KU football player Pooka Williams charged with domestic battery, suspended from team

Too many holes in your attempt at reasoning to bother debunking them all. Basically, you're full of that all too familiar barnyard substance.

Benefit of the doubt means just that. It's not leaning to go with presumption of innocence. Why would you presume otherwise? He's an athlete, male and/or black?

And, pointing out that she came to his place has nothing to do with the claimed injuries. When you get down to a 'he says-she says,' and it may ultimately come to that, you have to go with other determinants. If he'd gone over to her place, it might be a little harder for him to sell his side of it.

Your strong suspicions as to my motives for presuming him innocent until proven guilty are an insult, not to me, but to your own intelligence.

KU football player Pooka Williams charged with domestic battery, suspended from team

At this point, I'm going to give Pooka the benefit of the doubt.

(1) She came to his place.

(2) She reported minor injuries, not requiring medical attention.

(3) Battery can be as little as touching in a 'hostile manner,' which can be interpreted as being in a manner she considered hostile, and that could even include forcefully holding her off.

Could her minor injuries be bruises from him preventing an assault on himself?

Maybe a lot more occurred, but as of right now, it's not clear that he's guilty of anything.
