Zone-busted: Washington's strategy flummoxes No. 2 Kansas

I think that's just the nature of team sports. You're not always going to have your best stuff. And, sometimes, your stuff is plain bad. I don't buy the notion that coaches intentionally hope for, or try to bring about bad games.

Jaybate used to be big on the whole, "Self is bringing them out flat on purpose," garbage. I don't buy it.

Zone-busted: Washington's strategy flummoxes No. 2 Kansas

Washington's zone targeted all of KU's relative strengths. Vick didn't have the attack mentality because he's not particularly good at attacking off the bounce. My guess is the Washington coaching staff noticed that and "gambled" by leaving Vick open in the middle of the floor. Give them credit.

Washington's zone deserves all of the credit for stifling KU's offense, but ma gawd, KU's defense was SWISS CHEESE last night!

Sam Cunliffe soon will be more than just a practice player for Kansas

I'm excited to see this kid play. It should be a huge relief to add a little bit of depth and expand to a full 8-man rotation, which HCBS loves.

KU football player James Sosinski expected to be in uniform with KU basketball on Wednesday night

The real question here is...

Will Sosinski score more points for the Kansas mens basketball team than he had receptions for the Kansas football team (zero)?

Tough Ending: KU volleyball falls to Missouri in five sets

Bechard makes a good point. This graduating class has set up the program (no pun intended) for continued success. How does Bechard not experience a recruiting windfall from the success and exposure of these athletes?

A quick glance at Devonte' Graham vs. Frank Mason through 6 games

It's only natural to make comparisons. The narrative heading into this season was all about DG and how he was going to be able to carry the load created by the absence of FM. Nobody expected him TO BE Frank Mason, but a lot of people were hopeful he would be able to produce in a comparable fashion to Frank Mason. So, for that reason, it's a tad bit unfair to criticize one for making that comparison.

But I will say, it does feel like near blasphemy to compare any current Kansas player to the only consensus POY in KU history - especially this early in the season.

'As good of a team as I've ever seen': Jayhawks knock out Toledo with dominant stretch in first half

I haven't been to a game in a while.

And while I'm sure the level of enthusiasm has gotten worse over the years, my thesis for as to why this may be occurring is different.

A) KU has played a lot of crappy teams at home so far. Fans simply don't care as much about games against Toledo and Oakland.

B) Smart phones. Too many people (especially students) are more interested in updating their social media than actively cheering during the game.

Juan Dixon had something to do with the Maryland loss as well.
