KU basketball again makes cut for 5-star forward Billy Preston

Or his terrific work on Aretha Franklin's "Amazing Grace" and "Young Gifted and Black" albums.

KU to remove track from Memorial Stadium

This is terrific news! The "after" photo of the final rendering looks great.

Column: Desperate Cowboys steadier than KU

I am not bothered by this loss. I felt that we would lose this game before the season started. We will finish the conference season 15-3.

KU official: Proposed housing important for basketball recruiting

These apartments will clearly be the swankiest living quarters in town (save for Bill Self's home).

Opinion: James Sims should be remembered out of forgettable senior class

This was an opinion piece by Keegan. I don't respect his opinion much on this one. There is no need to trash the other seniors on the team with the title. Especially when they aren't the focus of the article. The article is about James, keep it about James.

KU, Oklahoma State picked to share Big 12 men's basketball title

If Naadir takes the leadership mantle of this team -- which I expect he will do -- we should be fine. I think we will be pleasantly surprised by Tharpe's play this season.

Opinion: Wide receiver Nick Harwell still coming to KU whether his former school cooperates or not

Why would we dissolve the football program? College Football programs in the BIG 12 level do not dissolve the program. That's just idiotic.

FINAL: Oklahoma State stuns KU with 85-80 win at Allen Fieldhouse

I never thought that losing at home was in the cards today -- or in this entire season. But, with that now a reality, we will need to steal a road win at venue where I had thought we would lose --- Stillwater, OK. We are taking OSU out on February 20th. Believe that!! Today is a bad day. Our boys better get real and ready for the latter half of the Big XII season.

Pay-for-play among Bill Self talk topics

I get what you're saying. But, iF that is the case, the benefits of being Bill Self (3$3.8 million per year) is greater. Tuition, books, and board is nothing in comparison to what Bill Self generates off of the legs of student-athletes. Doesn't bother me a bit if a trust fund is set up, or if the NCAA cuts all scholarship hoops/football players (athletic dept. fund generators) a check. It is time these athletes get some of this money.

Charlie Weis-Dayne Crist duo not so dynamic

Right now, this team lacks mental and physical toughness -- the missed tackles against Rice that led to first downs, will be missed tackles against conference competition for touchdowns. Weis has not developed a tough team. Our linebackers are easily the slowest in all of the Big XII. Even when we had angles on Rice ball carriers, our linebackers could not catch them. Weis/Crist combination is not clicking. Crist is a statue out there, he refuses to even run for a first down if all he had to do was walk two steps. This team is very poor -- particularly in mental/physical toughness. Jayhawk teams in the past, under Mangino, have lacked talent before, but they were always TOUGH and assignment sound. We lack in both qualities. I am not confident that we will win another game all year.
