A clean sweep: Tyshawn Taylor talks it up after KU victory |
“They had their time to talk to me while I was warming up and during the game, so I figured I had my time to talk to them a little bit after the game. After we get a win, it’s my time to talk a little bit,”

KU holds on for 59-53 win over K-State -
The game was defense, hustle and grit. The kind of game Bill Self loves, when he wins it.

Notebook: Jeff Withey 1 block short of triple-double |
Seems like we've had several games where he's been 1, 2 or 3 blocks from the mark.

Kevin Haskin: Taylor nearly costs KU, but also makes KU |
I think this nails it. As frustrating as he can be at times. This team isn't top five and competing for the Big 12 without this guy. Another great Jayhawk story.

Frank Martin: Game was ‘men’ vs. ‘kids’ |
Love him or hate him, I still dig the guys passion and the fact that he wears his emotions on his sleeve a bit. Not sure I'd like it if he was my coach, but I find him refreshing on another bench.

C-USA, MWC dissolving to form new league -
I guess I kind of like it. Could create a decent basketball league at times. Not sure how much it does for football long term. That Hawaii to East Carolina trip is an awful long one.
