Weis: Let's get it right at the start | CJOnline.com
“I think you get one opportunity to set it right. You only get one chance. You don’t get a do-over. I learned a long time ago that it’s always easier to set that table right in the beginning.”

This came out a couple days ago, anyone have any thoughts? I like it.

Captains: O-line in good hands | KUsports.com
Hawkinson finally looks like a left tackle. In years past, he looked like a good prospect with the sort of frame that could take on enough weight for him to hold off the best pass rushers in the Big 12. He always had the feet, now he has the thickness, and the weight he has put on looks like good weight — strong weight, not flab.

Peer pressure: Weis names captains early, hoping to stem off-field woes | KUsports.com
Picking captains during the spring caught some Jayhawks by surprise and came in the wake of Weis’ dismissal of two KU players for their role in an alleged altercation at a bar over the weekend. The incident, along with others like it, opened Weis’ eyes to just how much his new team needed to be held accountable by someone other than the head coach.

Kansas men's basketball notebook: Lyons to visit KU; Self offers NYC prep | KUsports.com
A few odds and ends from the basketball recruiting front. I'm not holding out too much hope for adding anyone else despite the fact that our name gets tossed around anytime a player is still left on the table right now.

The 25 best: USC QB Barkley and his receivers dominate list - NCAA Football - Sporting News
K-State QB checks in at #3. Truly amazed at what the old man has pulled off with Klein and in this second go around. Should be interesting to see what they do this year because they have a large portion of last years team returning.

Arkansas' move adds twist to already strange turn of events - NCAA Football - Sporting News
I'm not sure I'd be excited about this as an Arkansas fan. Team should be good next year regardless of the coach. Yes continuity is huge but lets say that Smith is successful and then gets the full time gig, are you happy about that as a Razorback fan? I wouldn't be because right now that is a GREAT job and I wouldn't have a ton of confidence in Smith leading the charge going forward.
