Kansas-Iowa State football clash to kickoff at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 on ESPN networks

God, please not the U. Very irritating to not be able to watch...even "buying" ESPN on my cable and paying for ESPN+. The darn cable company split the U away rom ESPN and ESPN2 so U isn't in my package. If you're paying for ESPN+ you should get all of the ESPN broadcast regardless of TV package.

Realignment battle lines continue to be drawn by conference commissioners; it's adjust now or regret it later

"College Athletics" is officially dead. It has become just another level of professional athletics. There is no allegiance to anything other than "self" now days. And unfortunately, football is leading this demise.

And if your rosters are changing yearly and not allowed to "mature" how long before the quality of the "product" suffers.

Kansas' Kenny Logan Jr. named to Thorpe Award watch list

Just thinking having a Safety as one of the top tacklers in the nation really a good thing overall for the defense? Seems to me you'd rather have linebackers making those tackles before a runner gets to that secondary level on a regular basis.

Could an unequal revenue sharing model calm the conference realignment waters or is it too late for that line of thinking?

If that's the case, then can KU keep more of its NCAA tourney $? I think those $ are shared with the conference too.

I guess the big losers would be "olympic sports"...particularly with the bottom level of the finishers.

Kansas men's basketball to face Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri next season

So with one exhibition game does that mean another closed scrimmage with another school like last year?

Kansas football set for first big recruiting weekend of the summer

So they can decommit in 6 months? Football recruiting is so much just can't be sure about recruiting until the signing deadlines are imminent. And even then they change in the 11th hour.

David McCormack's awakening propels Kansas over Miami after halftime

Until he brings the ball down below his waist and them makes himself 5'10". He gets stripped so often just because of that one action...bringing the ball down.

Wild Sunday leaves pair of double-digit seeds on bottom half of KU's region as the Jayhawks head to Chicago for the Sweet 16

Agreed. Ochai and Braun to me are the keys. Ochai needs to play like the All-American he is getting votes for. And we need the Braun from December and January to return. Lately he just seems slow to me...don't know if its the grind of the season or what. But Braun needs to find that level again.

No. 4 seed Providence up next for top-seeded Kansas in NCAA Tournament

This! Och has had several games in a row now where he as been "solid"...but not All-American. His NBA trial advice was to be more aggressive, which he was during most of the regular season. Now that the bright lights are on and the world is watching, he needs to go back and capture that aggressiveness.

Iowa State Cyclones head coach T.J. Otzelberger directs his offense during the second half on Tuesda

How the hell is this not a bench technical. He's about 4 ft outside the box. and if it's the second half and he's directing offense, he's on the court along with all the action. ISU coach looked like a clown all night long as he jump around like a maniac.
