Kansas Loses at Temple: Four Factors

The word of the day for Kansas (9-2) was “exposed” after Temple (8-4) got the better of the Jayhawks on Monday in a crushing 77-52 defeat. “We’re exposed again, and it’s the same way we’ve been exposed in the past,” Bill Self said in his postgame comments. Freshman Kelly Oubre echoed Self’s sentiment, “This exposed the things we obviously need to work on.”...

Kansas men’s basketball freshman Kelly Oubre, Jr., has been named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Newcomer of the Week, in a vote by a media panel, the conference office announced Monday.

Kansas Beats Lafayette: Four Factors

Kansas rolled through Lafayette on Saturday afternoon, 96-69, to move to 9-1 on the season. The Jayhawks were led by freshman Kelly Oubre Jr. who started for the second time in his young Kansas career after sophomore Brannen Greene was late to a weightlifting session on Friday. “Of course he wasn’t going to start today. That was a gift from Brannen Greene,” said Bill Self...

Kansas Scrapes Past Utah: Four Factors

Kansas narrowly escaped against Utah on Saturday afternoon, winning 63-60, after blowing a 21 point lead in the second half. The Jayhawks closed the first half on a 23-4 run, taking a 39-21 lead into the break.

Bill Self Says Mock Drafts Are Ridiculous and Don’t Mean Anything

A lot of fans and players use mock drafts as a guide to see where certain prospects are projected. They’re fun to check because there’s constant change weekly. On the down side, mock drafts can corrupt the minds of players. For example, Kelly Oubre Jr. was a highly touted prospect out of high school, but he’s been a major disappointment thus far at Kansas. Kelly is having...

ITP: Utah Near-Disaster and Epic Calipari Debate

The Jayhawks avoided the unthinkable by narrowly escaping Sprint Center with a victory over #13 Utah, despite blowing a 21-point second-half lead. Kansas just beat a top 15 team – so why are fans so disappointed in its performance? Ryan Landreth, Daniel Cunningham and Joshua Brisco read through more tweets from...

College Basketball: Kansas rebounds from early failure and moves in the right direction

What a difference three weeks make. When Kansas fell to Kentucky by 32 points over three weeks ago, and the Wildcats blocked as many shot attempts as the Jayhawks saw go through the net, panic for this reloaded Kansas squad set in. However, victories over Rhode Island, Tennessee and Florida at home; over Michigan State on a neutral floor; and at Georgetown this past Wednesday have...

Self doesn't believe Traylor arrest will distract KU at Georgetown

Amid an extremely competitive stretch of the schedule, Kansas will be without a key contributor for its next challenge. Suspended forward Jamari Traylor will watch as the No. 10 Jayhawks go on the road trying for a sixth straight victory Wednesday night against Georgetown. Traylor, who started the first two games but has become a dependable reserve with 3.3 points and 3.9 rebounds...

Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis”

The major failing of Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida’s offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn’t leave a great impression...

Fear And Hope Together: Inside the Latest Kansas Coaching Search

As a Kansas fan and alum, football season is a bit less exciting than basketball season to say the least. The one “positive” to being a Kansas fan is I have gotten really good at going through coaching searches. This is the third search for a head coach Kansas has undertaken since Mark Mangino left the school in 2009. So what is it like to go through a coaching search? Equal...

Kansas Receiver Kicks Pass; Kansas State Gets Bizarre Interception (Video)

It’s not very often that you see a pass get intercepted after it flies about 40 feet in the air off of a receiver’s foot, but Kansas made that happen Saturday nonetheless. During the first quarter of their rivalry game with Kansas State, Jayhawks quarterback Michael Cummings passed to wideout Rodriguez Coleman. But instead of catching the football, Coleman somehow kicked it...

Bill Self On Inconsistent Starting Lineups: “I Have A Hard Time Starting Guys Who Are Late To Tutoring”

Kansas’ highly-touted freshmen were expected to help lead the Jayhawks to yet another Big 12 title this season, but so far Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre Jr. have combined for one start, and are only averaging a bit over 25 minutes per game combined. In addition, KU has had a different starting line-up every night. When asked about the inconsistency, Bill Self said that part of...

Video: Kansas’ Punter Botched Snap, Refused To Recover Fumble

Kansas looks a bit overmatched today against Oklahoma, which doesn’t really come as a surprise to any college football fan. But it looks like at least one Jayhawks player might even be shying away from contact with the Sooners. Early in the first quarter, KU punter Trevor Pardula botched a snap (that was a bit high) and ran after it deep in his own team’s territory. Instead of...

Bill Self jokes about needing vodka after blowout loss

Kansas coach Bill Self saw his Jayhawks get blown out by No. 1 Kentucky Tuesday night, but it seems as-if he’s held onto his sense of humor, regardless. After the contest, Self, at his post-game press conference, joked that he wished his water bottle was full of vodka instead. The crowd enjoyed it.   We have a feeling that Self isn’t the only head coach who is going to feel...

Video: Kansas Fans Tore Down Goal Posts After Jayhawks Beat 2-7 Iowa State

Kansas Jayhawks Football Game 9: The Last Best Chance

Skipped previewing the Kansas Jayhawks football game last week against Baylor because we all had better things to do than think about a guaranteed loss. This is a home game for KU, which is nice, but what kind of advantage is it when there are barely 20,000 fans in a stadium that seats 50,000? In Clint Bowen’s first home game as interim head coach (second overall) the Hawks almost...
