KANSAS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Kansas' Jamari Traylor Throws Down A Monster Dunk Against West Virginia in OT

The Kansas Jayhawks had a tough one on their hands Tuesday night when West Virginia came to town. Kansas already has the Big 12 locked up so the win was not vital to their post season hopes, but the Mountaineers could use a win over a top 10 team to strengthen their resume. At the end of the first half it was looking good for West Virginia, but a dreadful second half allowed Kansas...

A Bad Mix: High-Low Offense and This Year’s KU Squad

The Jayhawks have lost three of their last six games, and in each of those defeats, they’ve failed to register more than 63 points. There’s no denying that offense is a problem for Kansas right now. Aside from Perry Ellis, it lacks a truly consistent scoring threat, and relying on the three-point shot as much as this team does is asking for disaster with a one-and-done tournament...

The Past, Present, and Future of Kansas Jayhawks Quarterbacks

It seems like lightyears since we last saw success in the Kansas football program.  Part of the disappointment, undoubtedly, goes back to the revolving door of the football coaching staff.  But KU has also had another glaring hole in recent years: the quarterback. It is certainly difficult to develop a quarterback.  There are many things that go into finding a true leader and...

This was a strong bounce-back after falling to Iowa State just a week earlier for its first Big 12 loss.
