Kansas Football

Opinion: Jake Heaps instant upgrade | KUsports.com
Heaps can place the ball into the hands of more playmakers than could Crist, thanks to Weis’ decision to move Tony Pierson to receiver much of the time, the addition of physical possession receiver Justin McCay, the continued improvement of tight end Jimmay Mundine and the return of running back James Sims.

"Don’t get too caught up in where you are drafted," Hawkinson recalled. "Just make the most of your opportunity."

Opinion: Justin McCay makes big first impression | KUsports.com
McCay put his soft hands and mean hands all over the Blue team’s 34-7 victory against the White team Saturday in sunny Memorial Stadium. He caught eight passes for 99 yards and a touchdown and had a better day blocking than catching.

Five Things I’m Looking Forward To For 2013-14 | One And One - SI.com
As hard as it is to let go once any season ends, the transition this year may be easier because there are so many juicy storylines already in play for 2013-14 season.

NBA draft 2013 Big Board leads with Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore - NBA - Chris Mannix - SI.com
McLemore erased the memory of two weak opening-round games, against Western Kentucky (11 points) and North Carolina (two), by posting 20 points (on 8-of-15 shooting) in a Sweet 16 loss to Michigan. With prototypical 2-guard size and a picturesque stroke, McLemore should be a starter right away and in the top half of NBA shooting guards within a couple of years.
