Men's basketball notebook: Marcus’ nickname? ‘Mook’

Beard is too gray; makes him look old.

Report: Former KU receiver Dezmon Briscoe waived by Bengals

Yeah, just too many guys here going for the same position. I had hoped he would find a way in, though. We have had so few reasons to cheer for the Bengals here in Cincy; I was hoping to have a former 'Hawk on the squad to cheer for. And you wouldn't have had to worry about him fitting in if you thought his personal life was iffy -- compared to other Bengals, he looks like a Sunday school teacher!

Could Allen Fieldhouse host an NCAA Tournament play-in game?

I'm a Cincinnati-area resident and Jayhawk - I was at the opening-round game this year, and my husband went last year. First off, Dayton Arena certainly was NOT mostly empty. There are a LOT of college basketball fans in the Cincinnati-Dayton-Columbus area, and we will drive to Dayton to see a good college game. We have no pro option here, and college basketball is very popular.

I have to wonder just the opposite: will KU fans turn out in sufficient numbers to make AFH look full? I doubt it.

My understanding is Dayton offers the NCAA a very attractive package to host that game, including 10,000 knowledgeable fans.

Kansas-bound: With help from mom, Josh Selby makes it to KU

But I'm sure the LJW uses AP.

Actually, Jesse is correct. The National Down Syndrome Society and the AP Stylebook prefer Down Syndrome. See:

May the spirit of John Bremner, the KU journalism legend, live on in all of us old copyeditors!

Love his mama! We need to recruit her for something.

KU picked to finish second in Big 12 North

I agree with utahjayhawk. I also requested dkjc28's post for removal. The comments are offensive to me, too, and I'm not even Catholic. I don't like to see this space go off topic anyway. Let's stick to the sports. I think we're going to have a GREAT year, and maybe telling the guys they're #2 will be the motivation they need to be #1!

Women eke out victory

Hey, LJW - Check your dateline.

It's CINCINNATI -- only one T in the word.

Great game to watch; I was there. A fun evening. Rock Chalk!

Spurs to keep Vaughn; Pacers sign K. Rush

That's why the hyphen was invented. Re-signs. Same problem with resent and re-sent.

Moving forward

Give the kid a break! He's a kid. You couldn't expect him to think and talk straight right after losing a tournament game! I understand his dilemma. He could also stay for his junior year and suffer an injury. Then where would he be? How many of the belly-achers on here would pass up an opportunity like this? I certainly do enjoy watching Julian play. If he does well, maybe I'll even start watching pro ball.
