Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 7.24.13

Kansas Football

Kevin Haskin: Heaps eager to take over at Kansas | CJOnline.com

Player is just like coach: brutally honest. Flat out states he didn't come to Kansas because of Kansas. It was all because of Weis.

Opinion: Sting of injury lessened by Love | KUsports.com

Glad to have multiple options and good backups. I expected big things from Love this year in a backup role. Now is his chance to really shine.

Once tied with KU as Big 12's worst, Baylor now contending | KUsports.com

I usually have at least one moment a day where I look at something and say "Well, DUH!". That moment came early today.

“So the first thing we had to do was make people respect us as opponents and then be a credible, formidable opponent...

Isn't that what everyone tries to do? The real question is how to do it. I guess I shouldn't be surprised after the "pile of crap" comment became a huge story, but I think this same story could be written in relation to Iowa State or any other team that has struggled recently.

Notebook: Texas coach Brown praises balanced Big 12, including KU | KUsports.com

Definitely agree that the Big 12 is the toughest conference top to bottom. I'll probably look at this in a separate post in the not-too-distant future.

Kansas Basketball

Freshman KU basketball player Brannen Greene cited for leaving scene of accident | KUsports.com

Dumb move. Every time I hear a story like this, I can't help but remember my Mom saying "Nothing good ever happens after 1 am."

KU basketball notebook: Ex-Jayhawks set for Chalmers all-star game | KUsports.com

I guess the non-Jayhawks were needed to make this an area event instead of just for KU fans. With tickets at $20 each, they might need the extra fan interest.
