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...

Kansas Jayhawks Need To Keep Clint Bowen

The almost should-have-been near upset of TCU would never have happened if Charlie Weis was still the Kansas Jayhawks head football coach. Clint Bowen deserved to keep the job before Saturday, he deserves to keep it just because of Saturday, and he will continue to find ways to deserve it the rest of the season.  Opposing coaches know it and everybody who’s seen KU football recently...
