The Gridiron - Week 7 from Kansas Jayhawks on Vimeo.

It feels stale out there. We need something good, anything positive in Kansas athletics.  Yes basketball is around the corner, but I feel like I need an energizer.  A new AD, news on Josh Selby, or a reset button for football. Life has ups and downs.  Clearly sports do as well.  I don't think we're out of the woods by a long shot, but I feel like we've got to have some good news soon.

Today we've got keys to the game, Warden talks BASKETBALL with a little Big 12 preview using his +/- which will take us into next weeks previews for the basketball season. 

Oh and some good news.  The new season of Friday Night Lights got under way last night on DirecTV and guess what? Eric Taylor was 2-8 in his first season with the Lions, things are looking up in season two.  Anything for optimism right?

“Turner is a great, great man,” Self said. “He will do a good job here. He’s been dealt a tough hand. I’m impressed with him because during the toughest of times he has been a stand-up man and a man of integrity.
