NCAA votes to lift moratorium on football, basketball workouts

As much as I want to see sports again, especially basketball, it's hard to imagine how they will be able to do all their training & conditioning workouts wearing a mask. Those things start getting steamy when you do anything slightly strenuous, & first impulse is to take it off so you can get cooler air.
How can they do a game without masks and keep everyone safe? We need a vaccine yesterday!

Kansas basketball 'wunderkind' Isaac Henderson takes home first RCST Trivia title

So did anyone break a sweat? Who was doing the rub-downs? Did they drink Gatorade or Red Bull?
Inquiring minds want to know!
Rock Chalk, Trivia Hawk!

Breaking down how new KU commitment Zach Clemence fits at Kansas

Welcome Zach! I like his game big time, blocking shots, smooth from outside, moving without the ball to space, all great for his age. Now just build up about 25 lbs of muscle and look out! Rock Chalk Zach!

NCAA response highlights 'egregious' conduct, 'defiant posture' in alleged violations by KU

Just did a look back at the UNC scandals that ran from 2010 to 2016, involving hundreds of athletes in multiple sports.
Wow, in the end, " On August 26, 2010, the NCAA began a separate investigation of North Carolina football that involved possible academic fraud involving a tutor in the university's academic support program. The NCAA found UNC guilty of multiple infractions, including academic fraud and failure to monitor the football program.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) then completed its own investigation in October 2017, finding no violations of its rules, largely due to the fact that the NCAA does not have oversight authority for university academic programs."

So really a concern for the student-athletes?
amazing hypocrisy....

NCAA moves toward allowing athletes to be paid sponsors

Wild west for sure. The All-stars will do fine.
Unfortunately, most athletes are not going to be able to benefit from this. It will be the 'stars' who are famous who will be able to make some, or maybe a LOT of money from this. And all the smaller colleges? Good luck there.

KU Athletic Director Jeff Long says Kansas has not considered cutting sports in wake of COVID-19 pandemic

Let's hope the athletic dept. can avoid budget cuts, but it's still early days for the loss of game income. Will fans be willing to buy virtual tickets to support KUAD? Will games be played without fans?

Sophomore big man David McCormack the latest Jayhawk to announce return to Kansas

Hey folks, the way the transfer/free agent market has blown up, you can't just assume that those who aren't NBA material are going to be back. I'm glad they are all coming back, we have the nucleus of a great team once again.
Let's just pray that this pandemic is diminished by next fall so everybody's favorite game can resume. Right now, I'm not so sure it will.
Meanwhile, Rock Chalk all day!

Kansas point guard Devon Dotson declares for 2020 NBA draft

Has there been a Jayhawk point guard who started as a freshman who had a better first 2 seasons? Jacque Vaughn is the only one I can think of who started as a freshman, or am I forgetting someone??
