Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes: Gameday Links

vWe made it.  Gameday 2011.  I think the most difficult thing about trying to turn the page when looking at 2010 sn't the uncertainty surrounding 2011, but the uncertainty surrounding the future and Kansas' place in conference realignment.  I feel better about our improvement and the direction that Gill might have us headed in than I do the direction of our conference affiliation at the moment.  I guess at this point all you can do is enjoy the day, enjoy a game against McNeese and sit back and watch.

Lotta smoke surrounding OU to the Pac12 along with OSU. No chance it stops there and unfortunately it probably means Texas/Texas Tech are the other two. Chips are going to fall soon.
