KANSAS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Past, Present, and Future of Kansas Jayhawks Quarterbacks

KU's Ellis making push --€” quietly, of course --€” to be named Big 12 Player of the Year

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- He lacks the barrel chest of Rico Gathers, the polish of Monte Morris, the electricity of Buddy Hield, the ice of Juwan Staten. Fine. But is it fair to punish him for it?  Perry Ellis is the Tim Duncan of the Big 12: Wise beyond his years, solid as a bedrock, reliable as a down coat and boring as all hell. And if Kansas (23-6, 12-4 conference) wraps up the league...

Kansas should be pleased to return home, and not simply because of its spotless record at Allen Fieldhouse.

Pressure and Formulas – Every Year, Others Cave while KU wins Big 12

Why can nobody ever clear the hurdle and dethrone the Kansas Jayhawks atop the Big 12 standings?

Last year’s weakness is this year’s strength, thanks to a man with a theme song.

The Young And The Old: A Youthful Kansas Team Once Again Takes Control Of The Big 12

Showing the maturity of a team beyond its years on the roster, Kansas picked up a huge road win over Texas Saturday. This was a strong bounce-back after falling to Iowa State just a week earlier for its first Big 12 loss. That setback in Ames against the Cyclones exposed some weaknesses and possibly a ***** in the armor in the Jayahwks, as they eye an 11th straight Big 12 crown....
