Spring football practices will feature competition galore in secondary

I'll be interested in seeing how Robert Topps, III does. He has good size to him (@ 6'2'' and 190lbs). In fact, there's a couple of other CB personnel that will be in their 2nd or 3rd year of the program (and just be Red-shirt Sophomores or younger) like Ian Peterson and Shola Ayinde. Also, I'm interested in seeing how much more weight Isiah Bean has put on (since last season) as well. It will be very interesting to see how the 2018 Football Team progresses.

Tom Keegan: KU turning into Juco U in football recruiting

247 was started by the people who originally created website. When Rivals sold out to Yahoo Sports. Bobby Burton and a host of others left Rivals and started 247 College Sports recruiting service site. A lot of the guru's left Rivals after their contracts expired. But, a lot of them stayed and executed new contracts with Rivals (such as Shay Wildeboor and Jon Kirby).

KU football's 2018 signing class includes 2 prep stars, 11 juco prospects

I remember there being a story of a Walk-on QB from the State of Nebraska coming to Kansas.
So, did the Walk-on QB from Nebraska end up changing his mind?

Bill Miller hire a home run for Kansas football

It would've been great if Turner Gill had kept Coach Miller on Staff (back in that era). How good would've Geno Grissom turned out to be? Hard to tell, but, it is what it is. The thing that I've noticed (over these past 7 years or so, since let go by Turner Gill), Coach Miller continued recruiting players from the State of Kansas / Kansas City region each and every year. So hopefully, his Kansas City / State of Kansas ties are still working in his favor (even more) now (that he's back in Lawrence, Kansas).

Malik Newman says one teammate saw the McCarthy Hall Free Throw Bandit on Wednesday

Dok's free throw shooting reminds me of Henry Carr (back in his Wichita State career). He was horrendous shooting free throws (prior to his senior year). Carr's FT% was .434 in his Freshman thru Junior Years. Then, his senior season he shot .604 in his final season. His Senior season, he shot his free throws with just his shooting hand (no left hand was placed on the basketball). So, it can be done. Coaches have to be prepared to actually coach and make Dok practice free throw shooting (I know, I know, we're talking about "Practice, Practice man, Practice").

Good luck, Jr. Your path may be a lot tougher now, than you've experienced to date.

Notebook: WVU's Harris earns start despite reprimand; Self wears Huggins' pullover

Huggy Bear showing some humor. Kind of like the old days of Coach Lou Carnasecca and Coach Thompson Sweater games.

Silvio De Sousa cleared by NCAA; will play today vs. K-State

That's exactly right. This year's team seems to have left that portion of game fundamentals in the closet.

Daniel Wise to return for redshirt senior season at Kansas

Your post is hard to argue with. Basically, the Jayhawk's football roster is pretty much all Beaty and Staff's recruits. And, the staff will be in their 4th year. Sure, there's been some coaching staff turnover. But, Beaty, Bowen, OL Coach have been here the entire time. In 2018, it's time to put your money where your mouth is and "Earn It".

Self says KU 'pushing buttons' but still awaiting word on De Sousa, Preston

They're to busy counting their proceeds from tonight's National Championship game. Jayhawk's issue is a backburner item for the NCAA Heads.
