Kansas pressures West Virginia, ultimately falters

The final score doesn't inspire confidence, but there were at least moments in the Jayhawks' 56-34 home loss to West Virginia when team showed real signs of life.

How to (Not) Watch: Kansas Jayhawks Football vs West Virginia

Everything you need to know to catch the KU football game on Saturday - or conversely, how to avoid it. West Virginia invades Lawrence today to see how quickly they can get to 100 points on the Kansas defense. Kansas is coming off a 42-30 loss at Ohio (not State) that wasn’t as close as that sounds.

KU Football Preview: West Virginia

Kansas begins Big 12 play this week with a home matchup against West Virginia. Per S&P+, this is actually the most winnable game left on the schedule.

Kansas offensive line hilariously goes missing on botched play

Kansas football has never been known for being a particularly high-quality product, but they made an embarrassing new lowlight on Saturday against Ohio.It’s hard, exactly, to see what the intentions behind the play in question were — perhaps it was originally conceived as a screen pass or something of the sort.

Kansas Basketball: Roy Williams is a better recruiter than Bill Self

Roy Williams is a better recruiter than Bill Self. Williams has perfected the recruiting game by bunching together talented players who have stayed three or four years. During this time, Self has made a lot of mistakes. He has gone after too many one-and-done recruits and top transfers that have off-the-court issues. Self has taken many risks on players that he should not have gone...
