KU women's basketball defeats Oklahoma in rematch with 83-80 win

These young ladies will have a lot of returners next year. Add in 2 of their better players that were out all year with injuries, plus their recruiting class and I think we “could”, I say again “could” be competitive in the BIG XII next year......excluding Baylor. I’m just not sure if the administration gives our coach another year or not.

Jonathan Wallace hired to become KU's new RBs coach, special teams coordinator

@Brett....this guy has almost ZERO experience as running backs coach. According to Dane, he coached RB’s at UTEP and was horrible. Not sure how this is a good hire. Time will tell. However, let me ask this: would you be this nice if Beaty was still head coach and he had made this hire? Not too sure that you could say yes to that question

I can understand bringing in someone familiar with Dearmon’s system.....2 thoughts:
1. It doesn’t sound like this guy ever played or coached RB’s before. Strange, very strange indeed
2. what happens when Dearmon leaves

Jayhawks lose early lead once again, as KU falls to TCU 87-74

There must be no defense in women’s college basketball. This team is scoring points.....and giving up large quantities of points. Our best players are Freshman and Sophomores, and we have two of our “best potential” athletes out before the year started. I would like to see what they could do with a full roster. I like Brandon, but not sure he will get another year to prove it.

Les Miles thinks KU addressed most of its needs in 2020 signing class

I fear we will be lucky to get 3 wins.....with several blowout losses. I don’t see any improvement in recruiting or talent. Maybe the coaches can coach them up, but I’m being glass half empty at this point.

Self: Looking ‘less and less’ like Wilson will return to lineup

There are other factors in play as well. By this time of the year Bill generally has a rotation. There is also a chemistry that has been formed with certain lineups on the floor. Throwing him in this late could disrupt that. We don’t have any games left where we will be so far ahead that players down on the bench will get mop up duty. We are pretty much looking at 7 or 8 players getting 95% of the playing time from here on out.

Jayhawks add CBs Dotson and Bryant, DE Anokwuru to 2020 class on National Signing Day

@Brett. I agree. This didn’t happen overnight. And we won’t dig out overnight. I totally get it. It just seems that many posts (not just this story, but many others) there are those saying this is a great class and we will be on top in no time at all. Just isn’t reality. It’s a baby step, but if we are still pulling these same types of recruits next year and the year after, I don’t see us winning more than 3 or 4 games a season....period. Hopefully we can compete and turn a corner in recruiting as a result.

@Clarence. WHAT???????? A good percentage of these recruits weren’t even sniffed at by “solid D1 schools”😂😂😂😂😂. Nice try though.
@Dale, yes there are some 3 and 2 star recruits that go on and make it big. There are over 1,000 3 and 2 stars out there. Less than 1% make it big. So if we continue to recruit them, we are bound to find that diamond in the rough between now and 40 years from now.
Not trying to be a debbie downer, but we will eventually have to up the recruiting game....OR we will continue to be at the bottom in recruiting AND in league standings at the end of the year

KU football loses commitments from 2 Class of 2020 prospects

Nobody knows for sure why people back out of a commitment, many reasons abound, and we are left to “guess”. Here is what I do know. Our offense put up more points per game than previous years. Is our O-line where it needs to be? Nope. We can and need to continually be recruiting that position. Now......our defense allowed more points per game that previous years. Do we need to improve on the defensive side? YES, YES, YES. I would say even more so than the O-line. Les went after the recruits that he WANTED and felt this team NEEDED. There are very few exceptions where he would pull a scholarship offer to give it to someone else, although not unheard of. In these instances, I say this was completely on the recruit and not the KU staff. We need help, we need good recruits, we need to change the attitude and culture. We, as fans, know this will take several years. My concern is, if we keep getting 2 stars and the rest of the BIG XII gets 3 and 4 star, we won’t compete. If the rest of the BIG XII coaches, couldn’t coach at all, then we could coach our kids up and compete. News flash....there are some real good coaches in the BIG XII conference. At the end of the day, talent will matter.

Oh, Austin. Read your previous posts on other columns. When the 4 star de-committed, and we picked up a 2 star OL you jumped all over it. You’ve made the comment more than once. At least be man enough to own it. You will feel better.
