Well, as you can see I sort of dove headfirst into some time off over the last week with the holiday and with only the American game to really hold us over, I apologize for the lack of content around here of late. That said, I've had a chance to recharge the batteries so to speak and I'm looking forward to a 2013 that has a tremendous amount of potential in the Jayhawk sporting landscape.
Whether it's the growing optimism surrounding this years basketball roster, the potential surrounding Charlie Weis and the Jayhawks this Spring or even the non-revenue sports which are improving led by the nationally ranked women's volleyball team last fall and the nationally ranked women's basketball team this spring, right now things feel like they are moving in a positive direction for Jayhawk fans.
So tonight we have Angel Goodrich and the women taking on in state rival Kansas State. The Wildcats have been the better program here for awhile and tonight marks a nice opportunity for the Jayhawks to take a leg up for the moment.
On the mens side things couldn't be going better. Bill Self has his team sitting at 11-1 and playing some very confident basketball right now. They are getting contributions from all over the court and Ben McLemore has the potential to be the type of player that can take over a game. A game against Temple on Sunday marks the end of the non-conference schedule and it will be a great test for Kansas as they prepare for a run at ninth straight Big 12 conference title.
On the football field the Jayhawk coaching staff will head back to work in the near future recruiting for the final few spots in the Kansas class for 2013 and they will likely continue to work ahead toward 2014. The players, both current and incoming junior college transfers, will report for winter workouts where Scott Holsopple begins his second offseason reshaping the roster.
Plenty to look forward to, plenty to talk about and hopefully plenty of good times ahead for the Jayhawks and RCT in 2013. With that, I thought I'd take a quick pulse of the community...any comments, questions, concerns, suggestions or things you'd like to see from RCT in the coming year?
