We've heard this more than once.

Charlie Weis heaps praise on QB | KUsports.com
“Don’t misconstrue Jake’s height with an athletic quarterback versus a true drop-back quarterback,” Weis said. “Jake can throw it all over the yard, too.”

If McCay can play immediately it certainly ups the competition level at WR.

This guy is NOT a fan of the Weis hire. Here's hoping our coach is seriously motivated to prove people wrong.

Women's Basketball

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Oklahoma State Cowgirls - Box Score - January 18, 2012 - ESPN
15 - 2 overall and a 4 - 1 start in the conference. Nice job by the women's team so far this year. Definitely something to keep an eye on. Last week we were in the 'others receiving votes' category. #13 A&M at home on Saturday. Win that one and this team should be ranked.

Texas tried to pull a Sherron to Mario handoff to end the game and just pissed it away. They'll be ready for Kansas that's for sure.

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers - Recap - January 18, 2012 - ESPN
Big win for a former Big 12 team. Honestly I thought they would do a lot better in the Big 10. I've never disliked Husker basketball I suppose so wouldn't be opposed to Doc Sadler getting things going up there.
