Is No. 9 Kansas lucky ... or good? (Spoiler: It's the latter)

According to statistical behemoth Ken Pomeroy -- the hamster turning the wheels at kenpom.com, don't pretend you've never looked -- the Kansas Jayhawks are the second-luckiest college basketball team in America. Actually, let's clarify that for a second. As of 10:43 p.m. Central time Wednesday night, KU ranked second in the nation in what Kenny the stat hamster calls "Luck Rating...

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....

Vicious Dunk By Cliff Alexander Will Give Fighting Illini Fans Nightmares

It’s been over a year since Cliff Alexander picked up the Illinois hat on National Signing Day, only to turn around and sign with the Kansas Jayhawks. It was a dark day for Fighting Illini fans. Adding to the pain is this monstrous dunk by Alexander against Oklahoma State. Alexander was given a technical foul for flexing after the slam, but that didn’t stop Kansas from winning...

Kansas’ Jamari Traylor Threw Down A Ridiculous Dunk Against TTU

Kansas junior forward Jamari Traylor only score seven points for the Jayhawks against Texas Tech Saturday, but he sure had no problem making a statement in the contest.

ITP: Baylor W, Carlton Bragg, and I’m Frank Mason!

Have you heard @IAmRedhead‘s rap inspired by Frank Mason? If not, listen here.

Kansas basketball recruit makes terrible on-camera blunder (Video)

You’ve heard of Kansas Jayhawk’ recruit Carlton Bragg, right? Well, Bragg has committed to play at Kansas next season, but don’t tell him, because he clearly knows that Kentucky is the better team, and even though all of his wishful thinking didn’t quite pan-out, he still manages to tell the world that he’ll play for Wildcats next year. I must note that Bragg, despite...

5-Star Recruit Carlton Bragg Puts on Kansas Hat, Says He’s Going to Kentucky

Bill Self nabbed a huge piece to his 2015 recruiting class on Thursday when 5-star power forward Carlton Bragg picked the Jayhawks. However, it appeared for a moment that Bragg (Villa Angela St. Joseph – Cleveland, Ohio) was a bit confused as to which school he actually picked.

Johnathan Motley dunks all over Jamari Traylor, called for charge (Video)

Baylor forward Johnathan Motley brought us what would have been one of the dunks of the college basketball season on Wednesday night, but he was called for a charge. It looks to me like Motley got robbed. The victim, Kansas forward Jamari Traylor, was fortunate enough to draw the foul. It may not prevent him...Read More

WATCH: Baylor's Jonathan Motley Nearly Ended Jamari Traylor With This Devastating Slam--But It Didn't Count!

The internet has done some good things and bad things for us. Thanks to the relative anonymity of the World Wide Web many people let their inner-jack*ss fly on all too regular a basis. At the same time, were it not for the web we probably would not see some of the awesome plays that technically never happened because of penalties. This devastating slam Baylor's Jonathan Motley threw...

Video: Baylor F Johnathan Motley Threw Down One Of The Most Impressive Dunks We’ve Ever Seen, Called For Charge

One of the most impressive dunks we’ve ever seen will, unfortunately, not count.  During the first half of the game between No. 12 Kansas (11-2) and No. 21 Baylor (11-2), Bears’ freshman forward Johnathan Motley threw down an incredible dunk. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound athlete jumped from just inside the free throw line and slammed the ball home over Kansas junior forward Jamari...

Kansas isn't the Big 12 favorite? Ha! We'll believe it when we see it

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Oh, sure, the cool kids doubt them. It's hip and rad and all those other pimply hyperboles. When Kansas wins, it wins, same as it ever was. Not news. When the Jayhawks lose, ah, there you go -- it leaves a mark, a hot iron brand in the back of the cortex. Kentucky. Temple. For all the acres upon acres of armor, the focus is on the chinks. Sorry.

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...

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.

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.
