Beaty aware of Kansas’ obstacles

Really? I was lukewarm on the hire beforehand, but I thought he knocked his intro presser out of the park. He's passionate with a clear plan.

Coaching Search 2014: Is Jim Harbaugh a legit candidate for Kansas?

First off, I don't think there's any way we wind up with Jim Harbaugh. I just won't do that to myself.

But all due respect, Matt, if he WERE to want the KU job, all the potential issues you list are just not … issues. He'd be a Shaq O'Neal-backboard-breaking slam dunk of hire.

Column: Dineen follows family tradition

"The next Gale Sayers already played for Oklahoma State and his name was Barry Sanders."

This was a weird line to throw in. Completely unneeded.

Click here for correct pronunciation for KU basketball recruit Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (KU recruit)

Thanks for this. It's really not that difficult to pronounce once you sound it out a couple of times.

Column: Naadir Tharpe jolly good chap

To paraphrase a wise man: Mr. Keegan, what you've just published is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent column were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in your audience is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

KU basketball press conference notes: Jan. 10

Did Coach Self happen to mention the in-state kids he missed by name?

What caught my eye at Day 13 of KU football's fall camp

Thanks for the update, Matt. Good stuff. Now for the annoying question (bet you thought you'd be rid of those once Short received NCAA clearance):

Hearing any rumblings on whether or not Pearce Slater will return?

KU football adds Miami Ohio wide receiver Nick Harwell

Is this kid actually eligible to play next season? Reading up on him, I don't get the impression that he's a Miami (OH) graduate. Therefore, he'd have to sit a year.

KU football program announces numerous coaching staff tweaks

To add to the above, Bowen was also co-defensive coordinator the year we won the orange bowl. He got out of dodge before the Gill trainwreck. Pretty big insult to hurl in his direction.

KU football coach Charlie Weis issues statement on linebacker Ben Heeney incident

Weis' statement sounds like coach speak for "I'm on Ben's side."

Probably just an altercation with some douchey bouncers. I don't think he misses a minute of playing time, and I'm good with that. I like my LBs with a temper.
