Appeal unsuccessful: NCAA denies hardship waiver for KU WR Justin McCay

Simply put, NCAA rule state that, barring extreme circumstances, you have 5 years of eligibility, of which you can compete in 4.

In good hands: Pierson, Jackson help ease worries over KU’s running-back position

Brian Luke was one hell of an athlete, I remember getting dunked on at the rec by him several times. He was closer to 6'3"-4". He wasn't the best quarterback by any measure, but he was built like a brick-isht-house. Crist has the same body type, looks like.

Jeremy Case digs aide gig

My take away was that Dickie Nut really rubs off on his players.

Tyshawn Taylor’s treys ‘aren’t important’

Tyshawn is absolutely right. I wish I would have read this article first this morning... but to repost from previous story.

When a good shooter isn't making "his shot", nothing gets him going better than canning 2 or 3 10-15 foot jumpers before stepping back out to hit the long ball.

Everyone expects Conner to take the 3. At the risk of sounding like Bobby "Gin Blossom Nose" Knight, if he'd use a shot fake, get his defender off his feet and take two dribbles towards the basket, he'd have an open 15 footer any time he wants it. Now, I don't know about you, but I feel like that's a shot he could make on a consistent basis that would let him "feel" the basket a little bit better than he is currently.

I feel like EJ could use the same methodology and find success. Additionally, considering how good of an athlete as he is, he should be taking advantage of the mid-range game to get himself back on track, if not drive every once and a while and get to the line.

Conner Teahan working to correct three-point woes

Dave,

I'm no Coach Dooley or Self, but that's the way I see it.

Do you like the "woo" some students are adding to the end of the Rock Chalk chant?

"woo" is now a socially accepted response to a number of queries. It's just a matter of time until Webster picks it up.

And by "ten seconds" you mean, "the last minute and a half of a ball game". Cheer and "woo" when we win. Until then, make the opponent feel like they're at their own funeral. Most of all... Keep it classy.

Board games: Big Bird, rappers come to KU defense’s aid

I agree... it's really sad to watch some of our fellow Jayhawks starting to acting like missourians.

Board games: Big Bird, rappers come to KU defense’s aid

When's the last time a KU defense has kept the #3 team in the country out of the endzone on 4 out of 5 attempts at any point of any game? Nuts the size of grapefruit.

Judging progress strictly based on number of wins is pointless. The year isn't over yet, but what you saw last Saturday... for three quarters, before the boys were tuckered out thanks, in large part, to an offense that couldn't keep the other team off the field, we saw defense that was good enough to win that game. Nuts the size of grapefruit... really wooly grapefruit.

Board games: Big Bird, rappers come to KU defense’s aid

Debbie Downer and Negative Nancy are two tired hags.

I saw a defense that finally found its nuts. Unfortunately, our offense decided to disappear in the second half again and hung the D out to dry by putting them back on the field with little or no rest. You just can't expect a defense, no matter how motivated, to succeed against a #3 team when you can only get 3 downs out of your offense.

This game was within 2 possessions until the 4th quarter. If not for a dropped DJ Beshears ball that could have been a touchdown, and a couple of errant 3rd down Webb passes, this game could have been a hell of a lot closer than it already was for the majority of the game. Nobody, including myself, expected KU to even keep it close, and hats off to them for doing so.

We're seeing improvement... let's hope that we continue to see it. HCTG is moving this team in the right direction, whether you're excited about that or not is your choice.
