Kansas Football

KU offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson drafted in fifth round by Cincinnati Bengals | KUsports.com
Kansas University offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson spent most of Saturday hanging out at his older brother’s house in Lawrence with friends and family, eating, smiling and waiting for the official word about where he would begin his NFL career.

Kansas Basketball

Opinion: Note to Self: Hire Mitchell Wiggins | KUsports.com
My understanding is that this can't happen?

KU coach Bill Self says Hunter Mickelson 'more of a perimeter player' than Jeff Withey | KUsports.com
"Not really. Not as tall, and he's more agile than Jeff, and he's probably more of a perimeter player than Jeff," Self said. "But from a shot-blocking standpoint, you can say he's a poor-man's Jeff. He's an excellent shot-blocker."

Bill Self in favor of September (!) start | KUsports.com
If the board chooses the three-week option, Kansas University (if it wished) could hold its annual Late Night in the Phog on Friday, Sept. 27, a week before the Jayhawks play their first Big 12 Conference football game.

Misc.

Adreian Payne returning to Michigan State Spartans for senior season - ESPN
Izzo is going to have a good team next year.

Colorado Buffaloes junior Andre Roberson entering NBA draft - ESPN
A bit of a blow to Tad Boyle. Not sure this is a smart move by Roberson.
